Very neat, tidy, and cosy cottage. Rooms quite small but adequate enough for a small family. Has everything you need, is in a handy location and great hosts.

Our holiday was lovely, it rained but it is Ireland :) Our cottage was great, very clean, everything we needed was there, and the owners were very welcoming, especially as we didn't arrive until nearly midnight, they were up and waiting, the table was laid for tea and scones, which we had for breakfast, delicious.. Would recommend Dooncaha. my teenage daughter especially liked her room and her very own lounge. Thank you for a lovely holiday. The O'Sullivan family

We came to Kerry to search for our dream home and we were so lucky to have Jo and Stephen as our hosts, not only was the accommodation clean,warm and beautifully furnished but they were fantastic.. They answered all our questions,which were many,about home ownership in Ireland,advised on lots of local facilities,officials,and contacts.They made the search easier and as a result we were able to concentrate on the actual viewings which resulted in us making an offer on a lovely house.Their house is lovely and very comfortable and the area very convenient for Limerick City ,Tralee and of course the ferry to County Clare,which is very wild. Thank you Jo and Stephen for all your help and we will see you again when we hope to be neighbors. Phyllis Brown

Our family stayed for two wonderful weeks and the cottage felt like home. We were warmly welcomed by the owners who always made themselves available to answer any questions about the cottage or sites of interest in Ireland. The impeccably maintained cottage was always a welcomed site at the end of a days journey. Location of the cottage is also perfectly situated for travel to The Ring of Kerry, Blarney Castle, Cliffs of Moher and the lovely town of Listowel. The cottage and the area was very quiet with the lovely Irish countryside all around. We also had a very special guest, "Spot" the small dog who visited us at the kitchen door several times each day. It was very nice to have a familiar face waiting for us after a day of sightseeing. Spot was the celebrity of the cottage! If you are looking for a warm, special place to stay where you can easily visit all the area attractions in Kerry and beyond, this place is the best! We highly recommend and will definitely return.

The property was excellent in all aspects, fully fitted the needs of my family which consisted of three generations, comfortable, well located and private /quiet. For anyone looking for a high standard holiday accommodation, whether to use as a base for touring this area of Ireland or just the local area or indeed as a purely relaxation / get away from it all type of holiday, this ticks all the boxes.

Liked absolutely everything. The cottage was amazing, in a beautiful location and spotlessly clean. The owners were very friendly and engaging, without being intrusive. The surrounding countryside was beautiful and it is perfectly placed for short drives to the Ring of Kerry, Dingle and the ferry across to County Clare. The cottage is well equipped, cosy and laid out beautifully, with an open plan area upstairs perfect for relaxing after a hard day touring! I highly recommend this beautiful cottage to everyone thinking of visiting this amazing corner of Ireland.

The cottage was perfect! Everything was just as nice as the pictures. We had 4 bedrooms which was the right amount of space for the 5 of us. It was modern and very clean. The location was great because we were able to take the ferry which was close by to tour the Cliffs of Mohr and to go to Doolin. It was a nice spot to be able to drive down South to Dingle as well.

Stayed in this beautiful holiday home/ cottage and its is truly a wonderful place to stay. The location is wonderful, accommodation is spotlessly clean and couldnt ask for more from the people who own the property. It is in easy driving distance of Killarney, Tralee and ballybunion so there is lots to do during the day. Would recommend this and will be definitely returning to stay here

A beautiful well finished cottage in a lovely peaceful setting. The interior of the cottage was outstanding and the owners couldn't be more helpful. Only 5mins from the shops and within 30-40mins from Tralee.

The Cottage is beautiful, quiet and well located for trips along the west coast of Ireland. You can see and feel that the owners take care of the house, they made us feel at home from the first moment. The holiday started the second we arrived! With sunny and warm weather we could enjoy the garden and also the visits of Spot, the owner's friendly dog, who visited us now and then. You find everything you need for the household; there are sufficient linens and towels, information on tours and things to do during the stay and a well-working WiFi was useful for us. We enjoyed every moment of our stay at Dooncaha cottage.

The owners are more than charming and very considerate. They gave very good advice for the visit to Kerry and gave me a lot of information on what to visit and how to get there. The cottage is very well maintained and the site is quiet and relaxing. I can say that I had a great time and would recommend this cottage to people looking to go on holiday in Kerry.

In every detail the cottage was of a very high standard. After a long journey the welcome couldn't have been any better. The owners of the property were a delight and most helpful, also they gave us a wonderful send off. From the various cottages we have visited this is by far the most impressive.
