August 2020
Spent a wonderful first week of August in this spacious home from home. The setting is outstanding in its beauty. Lough Currane enchanting, with ever changing moods viewed from sun room, kitchen or bedroom. 6 adults plus pet were more than happy with how well equipped and comfortable this cottage was. The Fenton family were excellent hosts and the tray of scones and jam awaiting our arrival was most welcome. Waterville was great for good eating places and very relaxing. We would love to make a return visit. As a base for visiting the many fantastic beaches and places of outstanding beauty in the vicinity,this cottage is second to none.

Lough Curran Cottage is very spacious with more than enough room for the 6 adults in our group.. It's position overlooking the lake meant we had glorious views in all weather's and is only 2km from the wonderful Waterville village

We are very grateful to the Hogan's cottages team who helped us on different occasions to enquire whether dogs were allowed and with the ferry booking which was still possible at the time.. The team have been prompt and very helpful in sorting things out over the phone. Thank you very much.

Beautiful cottage in great location Had all the amenities/equipment required it was like home from home.. Outstanding views and very relaxing. Waterville approx 1 mile away with pubs & restaurants. Drive the Ring of Kerry is a must to take in the stunning scenery. I would highly recommend this cottage any time of year.

The cottage was exactly as advertised and the owner John very helpful in all ways.. When we arrived The fire lighting, the flowers and the waiting scones and jam were all lovely extra touches that made the cottage feel like a home from home. As the weather was cold and wet the first few days John dropped up some turf for the fire which was much appreciated. The location was beautiful and wild all at the same time. No hesitation in recommending this cottage and it's owners to anyone. We have holidayed in kerry many many times but can say this cottage was the best we have stayed in. We will definitely hope to visit there again. Ten out of ten.

This is a lovely home set up on high with lovely views over the lake.. The house is clean, spacious and comfortable. The owners were extremely helpful and Mary, in particular, was very kind and empathetic to my wife who suffers from MND and found the first days travel to Waterville from the UK extremely arduous, as we arrived in the area in pitch black rainy weather, we could not locate the house in the dark and they came and led us up to it. Three observations though, I am not sure that charging for fuel at such a high rate is fair to visitors in the non-high season, personally, I would prefer this to be part of the upfront price as visitors in high season would normally attract better weather and would not require as much heating and lighting. !30 Euros for two weeks was a bit of a shock, considering that we used it on the timer. Point two is that the TV is only terrestrial program channels, which are fine for Irish visitors but for many others, I suspect like us not what you would expect in this day and age. A version of Freeview would have been nice. We had to rely on watching old DVD films which were provided. Finally, it would be nice if there were a few food trays to use for meals, having to eat at the table is not always convenient. That said, it was a thoroughly enjoyable and comfortable stay at the house and would heartily recommend it to prospective holidaymakers. Kerry is beautiful and Waterville, in particular, is a great base for exploring the many sites. Great food at reasonable prices in most places, in particular, we like the 'Village Kitchen' in Sneem. Also, a pint or two of Guinness at the Butler arms hotel is a must each day :-) Charlie Chaplin stayed here on his many holiday visits to Waterville.

A delightful, spacious cottage in a peaceful location with spectacular views - perfect!
May 2017
This cottage has by now received many fantastic reports & I too can only endorse all the excellent feedback. The property is in a great location - is well maintained & Mary & John Fenton are the perfect hosts - nothing is to much trouble! The welcome of the peat fire combined with flowers on the table along with scones & jam is testament of their attention to detail! Well done to them both! We were very fortunate with the weather - wall to wall sunshine all week which enhanced an already perfect holiday in such tranquil surroundings! Once you have adjusted to the relaxed way of life here there are many places to visit along "the Wild Atlantic Way" - too much to take in in one week but just hope we can make it back in the non to distant future!

We stayed at the cottage for one week and wished it could have been for longer. Somehow, the owners had managed to ensure that when we walked through the door, we felt like the first ever visitors, which is exactly how it should be. The cottage was immaculate inside, extremely well-equipped, with a practical layout, but was homely, too. To top it off, when we arrived, there were fresh scones, milk, butter, jam, tea and coffee waiting for us, and the fire had been lit: all we had to do was unpack and relax. Believe me, we were so grateful! Plus, if we needed help with anything while we were there, the owner appeared within minutes. I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone visiting County Kerry. You won't be disappointed.

Visited this cottage for a week at the beginning of October (10th) 2016. We travelled as two couples (50+) and had a lovely week. The good weather obviously helped but the cottage was very nicely equipped with good heating facilities for the cooler evenings. Really nice landlord who popped round to say hello. Scones made and ready for our arrival along with tea and coffee. The rooms are of good standard and relatively new. Would highly recommend.

We had a wonderful Christmas getaway in this excellent accommodation. The owners went that extra mile to make everything wonderful. What more could you ask for? We think the owners deserve a prize!

There were stunning views from this well kept and designed bungalow overlooking Lough Currane. I understand it is popular and I can well understand why. A true delight. The coastline and mountains, lakes and rivers are truly beautiful.
June 2015
A fantastic cottage with beautiful views across Lake Currane to mountains. Located close to Waterville, and Kerry Way was on our doorstep, a perfect location to explore the Ring of Kerry and Dingle peninsula etc. Currane Cottage was superb with ample room for a family of seven. We could not have been happier with whole package and will be returning next year. What a great find and very reasonably priced.

An excellent cottage with very helpful owners. We had a few questions and the owners were so responsive! We enjoyed our week in Ireland and we felt the cottage location was perfect!
December 2014
My husband and I stayed in this amazing bungalow for three nights and it was a really relaxing experience. We have stayed in many rental properties around the world and this one really exceeded all of our expectations. I can truly say that this bungalow looks even better than in the photographs and the decoration throughout is superb. The view of Lough Currane is simply wonderful - we did the 12 mile hike around it which was a great experience. There is plenty to do in this beautiful part of Ireland and then to return and light the peat burner and / or open fire was wonderful. Mary and John Fenton are excellent to deal with and very helpful. If you are wondering whether to stay here - don't. It is simply wonderful and we hope to return next year. The only tip I would give is that the bungalow is set slightly off the road, up a track which we didn't initially realise when looking for it.

The location was fabulous and the scenery was spectacular. It was very quiet and private.

We spent two weeks in Lough Currane Cottage and really enjoyed it. The views are wonderful, ever changing and always engaging. The cottage is really comfortable, we were a party of 6 adults and found we had plenty of room. The facilities were more than adequate although we felt the kitchen might have been better equipped (we had an enthusiastic cook with us!!) That aside we wholeheartedly recommend the cottage to anyone who may be looking for a tranquil, relaxing break. Oh and the scones on arrival were just fantastic.
August 2014
The accommodation exceeded our expectations , it was well equipped and good furnishings . We had wondered what the bathroom /shower room would be like as there were no photos but they were excellent . The conservatory was a wonderful place to sit and admire the magnificent views and sunsets . We were enthralled with the views when we arrived as it was such a beautiful location .

A nice and quiet location. The property is very large and bright with big windows and stunning views. The owners had provided lots of very useful leaflets and brochures on the locality and places of interest. Well recommended.
April 2014
This is our 2nd visit to this cottage. Enjoyed it so much we are back again this week. Awesome place.

This cottage is in the most fabulous site ever, the views over the lough and mountains were ever changing. Very quiet and tranquil location, but only 5minute drive or 15minute walk to the village and sea. The cottage is fully equipped for complete family living with peat fires, which were so cosy considering we were staying there in January. Getting up early and watching the hares playing in the garden was delightful. Mr & Mrs Fenton were there to help us with anything we required.
Mr McMahon
February 2014
A perfect home from home. The owner could not have been more helpful, especially in supplying fuel. Warm and cosy cottage, especially in January. View from cottage over the Lough is unbelievably outstanding and visits from a hare early every morning in the garden was charming.

It was mid November when we stayed and early evening when we arrived so the directions were good and the outside lights left on to guide us in was great. We were welcomed by a lovely fire lit in the kitchen diner (great that Turf and logs were include in the rental), scones and tea on a tray but it didn't end there...later as we put our travel weary bodies to bed there was a hidden gem... a hot water bottle fantastic! The views from the cottage are fantastic and change as the sun rises, then rests over the Lough before setting in the evening.Thank you to the owners for making our stay so comfortable and giving us the break we so much needed.

On arrival there were scones, butter, jam tea awaiting us and the stove was lit in the kitchen. The weather was excellent. This house overlooks a large lake and there are exceptional views from every front window. We were in touch with the owners before and during our trip to Waterville. Once we arrived in the house they made sure we were settled in and then the house was ours for the week. They never imposed on us and we did not meet them again until the night before we vacated the property. It was the most relaxing holiday we have had for a long time.
Mrs Taylor

Stunning location. The cottage setting really maximises the views across the lough. Real imagination shown in having the master bedroom at the front of the property with a patio door. One can sit in bed with a cuppa and drink in the view. Loved the people! Almost without exception they were friendly, welcoming, and went out of their way to be helpful.

The scenery from the cottage was breathtaking. The area was very peaceful, a good place to unwind. The owners were very hospitable and friendly.

The photos on the website do not do the views from the cottage justice. Excellent location for a quiet holiday.

This three bedroom home was exactly like the pictures only better .A warm, comfortable home equipped with everything needed to be make a memorable week. The owners were friendly and very helpful with our various questions an requests .The location was perfect .One km from the main road with a gem of a golf course across the street .Skellig Bay Golf Club. A great alternative to the large Waterville links course .Skellig Bay was smaller and senior friendly .Had golf carts for rent and we were able to play nine hole rounds,which in the wind and scattered showers was just enough .Personnel was extremely helpful and friendly as were the other golfers on the course. We had no trouble with the rental. Signed up online through Sykes Cottages and arrived to find the key and scones with butter and jam waiting for us ..the walk down the lake road was lovely, overlooking the lake ,farmland ,cows and cottages.. The ride into the village was easy and there were wonderful restaurants and pubs to warm us up after golf .Try the seafood chowder at Fisherman's Bar..Delicious!! ! Smugglers Inn was perfect for a gourmet dinner and views of the links course .. A trip to Valencia Island should be included in sightseeing plans .The ride up the mountain with a stop at the quarry and grotto a must. Riding the ring of Kerry is interesting as it is difficult to see the views while watching for tour buses and hiding under the dashboard ..There are well planned walking trails which would be a good alternative also pony trekking ..If you do drive take it slowly and only after you have rested from your trip a couple of days... If possible hire an automatic as it's one less thing to think about while on the other side of the road..I would suggest staying near the airport for a day or so to get used to the roads and driving conditions.. Bunratty or Adare are good areas for that .Adare if you are going south... Bunratty if heading north or west .My husband and I have traveled to Ireland many times and it never failed to be a wonderful trip .This time it was extra special because of our wonderful rental house..Hoping to go back next year.. Maybe for two weeks!!

Absolutely loved this cottage. The house matched the pictures exactly! Every room was spotless & everything that was advertised as supplied was there. We had such a relaxing & comfortable week here. The weather even managed to stay lovely for our stay so that we could soak up the magnificent views over the lake. Sunsets here are spectacular & the sunroom is perfectly positioned to get the best view. Have to say we came back feeling that we had a reall holiday, away from it all. The beaches nearby are just amazing, definintley check out Caherdaniel & the beach just beyond Daniel O' Connells House, Derrynane. We will definitely return here as it was perfect in every way. The road along by the lake from the house is perfect for a good walk/run with amazing views. The Smugglers restaurant in Waterville has some delicious food, a bit pricey but definitley worth it, try the early bird if you want to keep costs down. No Tesco/Dunnes nearby, Centra in Waterville & Supervalue in Cahersiveen @20mins drive away. So stock up in Aldi in Kilorglin or Tesco in Abbeyfeal entroute! Couldn't have found a more picture perfect place to stay with the cottage to match. A big thanks to the Fentons for providing a 10/10 service here.
