First of all an apology.. ... for not submitting feedback until now!
Fuschia Cottage is an absolutely perfect location for a relaxing holiday! It's central location means you can reach all the attractions 'The Ring' has to offer without rushing around and missing anything; we were able to savour lazy lie-ins, relaxed breakfasts and still spend the a good deal of the day indulging ourselves with long walks with the dogs and feeling overwhelmed with the stunning views that filled our eyes and hearts with wonder. Then bimbling 'home',normally being met by Ben & Laddie bounding towards us with a huge doggy grins.
Bernie & Derry are the nicest couple you could hope to meet, full of warmth, cheer and they can have a rightful pride in the cottage for what it gives to those that stay there. Fuschia swallows you up with warmth and comfort, inviting you to relax and escape the rat-race of day to day life. So much that there was a tinge of regret when it was time to leave and we bade our farewells and drove away.
Most holidays sometimes feel as if they are over as you leave a place, but this was one of those times that the feeling of utter relaxation stayed with us for days afterwards, even though we both where back at work within 48hrs. (My boss had to work hard to get the serene look off my face)
Bernie mentioned that next year could be the last season that they will be renting Fuschia out, if that does turn out to be the case, we would heartily recommend that people take the opportunity to book the cottage and enjoy what so many others have enjoyed over the years. You will not be disappointed.

Fuschia cottage is in a beautiful location on the outskirts of Waterville town.. We really enjoyed our stay.
Ms Lynch, August 2019
We received a very warm welcome from Bernie and Derry who were also a great support during our stay.. We loved Fushia Cottage, a homely cosy cottage in a lovely relaxing setting. The cottage contained everything that you would need in order to support a comfortable stay. The winding staircase is a great authentic feature in the cottage but may be difficult for those who would need support using stairs for example the elderly or young children. We are a family of three, highly recommending Fushia Cottage, we loved staying there, with plans for returning next year!!
Mr Egan, July 2019
This cottage is an absolute gem! ! Excellent location for exploring the Ring of Kerry. The cottage had great facilities and very clean. The surrounding gardens were perfect for us and our dog. It was well set back from the road so we had no issues with letting our dog out to round about off lead.
Cottage had a dishwasher and washing machine which was an added bonus and bed and shower were great.
We would definitely consider rebooking in the future if we were to head back to Co. Kerry.
Our hosts, Bernie and Derry were lovely and nothing was too much bother.
Overall we had a fantastic stay in Fuchsia Cottage

It was one of the most enjoyable holidays we've ever had.. The cottage was spacious, well-equipped and comfortable and Derry and Bernie were extremely welcoming and helpful. The sunshine helped of course but Kerry really is beautiful. Visiting the Skellig islands was quite expensive but worth it for the close-up views of the gannet colony and the seals. A walk round Loop Head was well worth the effort with its dramatic cliffs, wild flowers and birds. We saw a White-tailed eagle over the Upper Lake of Killarney National Park and we found Derry Nane Bay with its dunes and expanses of sand delightful.
Comfortable everything we expected
Friendly welcoming couple
We were given a warm Irish welcome by our hosts, Bernie and Derry.. The cottage is on an elevated site with extensive views looking towards mountains. The cottage is spacious, comfortable, homely and the comfortable beds ensure a good night's sleep. The surrounding countryside is beautiful, the coastal scenery, spectacular, the people charming and the seafood for which the area is renowned is great.
Derrynane Beach, The Ballinskelligs Ring, Valentina Island have great views and walks. Towns and villages are well-cared for and tidy.
Magnificent location on side of mountain .. 5 mins from centre of waterville with great restaurants and pubs.
Throw in one of the best sea trout /salmon lakes in Europe and you have heaven.
A very nice cottage in a quiet location with the added benefit of two bathrooms.. The owners have a holiday cottage tagged on in the former barn. The directions need updating as the “No Shooting” sign has been replaced by one saying “Fuschia”. Some smaller crockery such as a casserole dish and a small Pyrex bowl would be useful if there are two people staying.
Beautiful cottage.. In a perfect spot. We were both really happy with it. The pictures on the site dont do it justice. Wonderful stay in fushia cottage. We hope to return soon.
Fuchsia cottage was a brilliant space to relax for us - Bernie and her husband were wonderfully welcoming, and it was nice to be able to enjoy the beautiful weather in such a gorgeous location.. Our young son and our dog were able to just run around outside and have fun and the location is very convenient for day trips exploring Ballinskelligs and the Ring of Kerry. The beds were extremely comfy, always important on a holiday, and the whole family was able to have fun and relax.
Beautiful secluded cottage fantastic view and lovely hosts and an ideal base .... Beautiful secluded cottage fantastic view and lovely hosts and an ideal base for the area with excellent beaches nearby
Bernie and her husband, very welcoming, cottage perfect for what we needed.. Great location for exploring Kerry, beaches one side, mountains behind. Would happily stay again.
Bernie was wonderful.. We had virtually no water in one shower, but she said she checked with a plumber and it would be fixed after we left. I hope so.
Lovely cottage in a beautiful location.. Would have been nice to have connected Wifi, rather than a pay as you go modem and a hair dryer. Apart from that a very enjoyable stay and very nice owners that live next door and where very helpful.
On arrival we were warmly welcomed and given a tour of this beautiful cottage by the owners Bernie and Derry who were very friendly and helpful.
We loved that the cottage was so warm ,comfortable and cosy we felt at home right away. The setting was so peaceful with wonderful views of the sea and mountains and great walks close by.
The local shop was very convenient and Waterville which is lovely has good shops and restaurants. We cant think of one thing we didn't like about the cottage, we had a wonderful week and plan to return next year

We enjoyed a lovely peaceful week, the house itself is a gem with old world charm but with all the comforts of modern living.

Fabulous location and views, the property has been lovingly restored by the owners.. The perfect getaway from it all.
We were seeking a quiet and restful break and we found Fuschia Cottage fit the bill perfectly. The owners proved to be perfect hosts and must have worked extremely hard to have a cottage with all the modern attachments, but still maintaining the character. It is situated away from the main road, but still a stones throw away from all the necessary holiday requirements. We intend to visit again and explore the local walks, beaches and eating places further.

The cottage was very peaceful and quiet with a gorgeous view. It was situated just outside the village and is within a short distance to the beach and walks. Also, other places of interest are not too far away to travel by car. Would highly recommend this cottage. A great holiday and would definitely return again.

Fuschia Cottage is beautifully decorated and cozy in a great location. The views all around are truly breath taking. The owners had provided lots of very useful leaflets and brochures on the locality and places of interest.
A perfect little cottage:
Its just a (steep) scramble up to the Kerry Way from the back of the house, which made for the perfect walking situation. Being just outside Waterville was perfect for us too, close enough to do the shopping, but far enough away to be tranquil. Bernie, the owner, made a perfect hostess, and the cottage was pretty much perfect too.
The stairs are steep - its not really designed for families or seniors, but it would make a great base for two couples.
