We had a great week at Kate’s cottage which had everything we needed.. It’s in a wonderful location with an easy walk into Knightstown and lovely views of the mountains and water from the back garden. The bed was comfortable, nights were really quiet, and the kitchen was well equipped. We also enjoyed lighting the open fire every evening. Valentia island is a delightful place and we found plenty to do whilst still keeping socially distanced.

We stayed in Kate's cottage and it was exactly as we expected, house was old but spotlessly clean and had everything we needed.. There's not much on valentia island but it was just what we wanted, a quiet time away. Will definitely recommend and definitely will book again.

A nice little retreat in a very picturesque part of Ireland. The location of the property is good - not far from Knightstown and the ferry crossing. The property itself could do with a bit of an update - there was a distinct damp smell throughout the property which wasn't great. We were visiting the Island with a larger party who were staying down the road in Chapeltown so we spent most of the time at their house as it was much larger. We mainly just slept at the cottage with our 2 young children (1 and 3) and there was enough room for all of us. We were there for just under 2 weeks - 1 recommendation I would make to the owners, is that there should be a hoover in the property (especially for people staying there that long!) - 2 weeks with 2 kids and no hoover meant that it did get quite messy! Overall a nice holiday.

A lovely cozy cottage for a quiet and relaxing holiday.. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need. The house is very clean. All rooms are very nicely decorated. A very nice large garden, which you should absolutely enjoy in nice weather, with a very nice view. Many Thanks.

We had a perfect holiday, the location was just right - far enough away from the village so we had peace and tranquillity.

Kate's cottage was ideal for us as it provided good accommodation and facilities and no fuss whatsoever. We will certainly use this again if coming that way.

Kerry is truly a wonderful part of Ireland, wonderful beaches, walks and so much history. Also plenty of fishing. The owner was a very nice and helpful person. Hopefully will be returning next year.
