The house was clean and beautiful however it was cold the second day and we run out of gas the last night and we were not able to cook our meal .. We had to use a microwave oven to cook our meal which was not ideal.

We met the engaging owner, Brendan, who had asked us not to arrive before 4.. 30pm so the place would be spick and span. He took us through his home's foibles - the jamming doorbell (more of a deep hum than a jam), the occasional tricks needed to get the showers going, the TV system and its missing DVD player, and other oddities - and was promptly available by mobile when we subsequently needed further clarifications. He couldn't explain the abundance of flies in the kitchen, so we got down to a good clean of surfaces, covered the open dustbin in the utility room next door and bought a fly spray. Cleanliness aside, the property is spacious and reasonably well equipped for two adults and three independent children (14, 18, 20). The basic satellite package (not the one advertised) was good and the wifi broadband was sufficient to allow us to watch films in the evening via subscription channels on our laptop, which we connected to the TV monitor. As Brendan warned (and as noted in advertising), the broadband is not high capacity. The best thing about the property is its location, at the head of the Dingle peninsula, well positioned to explore south west Kerry.

This property is nothing like advertised and the photos must have been taken some time ago.. We arrived around 5.15pm, having given advanced notification to the owners. They were still 'cleaning' the property, blaming the last people who hadn't left until 12. The house is tired and certainly not the 4* accommodation advertised. Firstly, it was filthy and not just from the previous people who stayed. I spent an hour cleaning the oven before we dared use it and likewise anything else we wanted to use in the kitchen. Nothing matched from the cutlery, crockery to towels provided. There was a rug in the lounge area we moved as it was filthy with no way of cleaning it (just a couple of old sweeping brushes in the house, no vac). There were wires hanging out of the walls in 2 rooms, light bulbs not working, rusty and torn old office chairs in the garden and general 'stuff' of no use to a tenant left everywhere. This may have been a nice property a few years ago but now just appears to be used as a cash cow with nothing put back into it. It was not worth half the money that we paid and i would certainly not recommend it in its current state.

Fantastic cottage.. Only 2 of us stayed so for us it was huge. Good location as well. Some road noise but didn’t bother us.

This is excellent accommodation in a wonderful part of Ireland..

This is a large beautiful home, with everything you needed.. Although it is near a shop and a pub, we did not feel secure enough to walk. As there are no side walks or street lights. Lorraine was great in helping us find the house! As our GPS would not take us there. It is very convenient to all the scenic towns and sights. Janet and friends in Canada.

Excellent location to stay, very handy to so many different attractions Dingle Peninsula, cliffs of Moher, ring of Kerry and many more. The house was very comftable with open family room/Kitchen and what we called the quiet room for the Adults.would recommend this house without hesitation .

An excellent house in a superb setting, situated on the edge of the Dingle peninsula and very convenient to the Ring of Kerry, Tralee, Killarney and other places of interest.
July 2016
We loved everything about this house. Apart from the wooden floors upstairs being a bit noisy for those of us trying to sleep on the ground floor (this of course cannot be helped), this house really is perfect. We absolutely loved it! It's got everything you need, it's spacious, it's in a good location close to Killarney, Tralee etc and both Brendan and Lorraine couldn't have been more nicer. The price too was extremely reasonable. All this helped to make our holiday a really memorable one. We hope to come back again some time in the future. Thanks Brendan and Lorraine for everything
