Absolutely WONDERFUL location! Two large grocery stores within 7 minutes drive, Tralee within 15 minutes drive, Killarney within 30 minutes drive.... we were able to explore the Slea Head peninsula, Ring of Kerry and Beara Peninsula without having to travel extreme distances to get there. Shops, pubs, bakeries, coffee shops, restaurants, all just minutes away.
The cottage itself was also PERFECT! One of my criteria was washer/ dryer. We had four people traveling this time, so luggage was an issue. We wanted to pack light for a 10 night Ireland stay so a washer/ dryer was necessary. It worked out great. We were able to do laundry on the go. Another was separate bathrooms/ bedrooms for everyone- also provided! The bathrooms and bedrooms were very roomy, clean and comfy. The rest of the house also exceeded expectations. The kitchen was a good size, very satisfactory, providing everything we could possibly need- we were pleasantly surprised to see that Mrs. Mary had baked a fresh loaf of Brown bread for us (waiting for us on the kitchen table), fresh Irish milk, cheese and butter in the fridge and homemade jam, OH MY! That jam was SO GOOD! Cooking breakfast everyday was a pleasure with those great big windows in the kitchen. I loved it! The living and dining room was also quite large and roomy, very homey and comfy. We had cable tv, DVD movies to choose from, a variety of games and books to choose from and we could stay connected with wifi.... Mrs. Mary thought of everything. We were pleasantly pleased and would highly recommend Julie's Cottage to anyone looking for a convenient base to explore the SW.
