What a wonderful house.. It is beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean, and the kitchen is fully equipped. It is so quiet and we had some of the best sleep we had for year.

Nono's Cottage had everything for the perfect holiday.. It is exactly as advertised with lots of added extras and is so cosy and homely you wont want to leave. Michaèl has thought of everthing and is rightly proud of this lovely cottage and its history. The leval of cleanliness and attention to detail gives you the feeling of walking into a newly decorated house. We highly recommend this cottage as a fantastic place to stay.

Absolutely wonderful! There is nothing you will need, other than food, to stay in this beautiful cottage. Beautifully decorated, wonderful sleeping, nice location, on and on. Micheal, our host, is a super host and has made certain your stay is complete. There is even a wash & dryer which is unheard of in most airbnbs.

Nono's cottage was an absolutely fantastic place to stay, Michael really pulled out all the stops to make our stay at his cottage as comfortable as possible.. The cottage was beautifully decorated in time for Christmas and a lovely hamper was left for us on arrival. We are no strangers to staying at Nono's cottage as this was our third time staying at this property - I think that says it all! If you are looking for a place to stay that is comfortable and feels like home then don't hesitate to book a stay here.

Nono's Cottage was a beautiful place to stay and we really enjoyed our visit.. The cottage had absolutely everything you could wish for, with a really well-equipped kitchen, comfortable beds with beautiful linen and a duvet that made you feel you were sleeping under a beautiful soft cloud! The decor was tastefully done throughout and finished off with nice ornaments and pictures. There was an area out front where you could sit and watch the world go by, and also a seating area at the back of the property where we sat out and had our breakfast each morning. There was a really nice welcome basket awaiting us, and the host, Micheal, could not have been more friendly. Everyone we met in Gneeveguilla was extremely friendly. There is a pub next door and a little village shop/post office. We could not fault Nono's cottage and would love to come back again one day.

Nono's cottage was the best holiday accommodation we have stayed in.. Micheal went far beyond expectations with a warm welcome and lots of useful information about the area and its history. He was available to deal with any problems or queries (there were none) but was in no way intrusive - a perfect host.

NoNo's Cottage is without doubt the best furnished and well equipped self-catering accommodation we have stayed at in over 30 years. Renovated 2 years ago, it is contemporary and modern in style but seems to retain it's old world charm. Spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable with all the modern facilities you need to self-cater. Both bedrooms are spacious and en-suite with excellent showers. We were warmly welcomed by Michael the owner lives next door and so is always there should you have a problem or need any information without being "in your face". NoNo's is just 15 minutes from Killarney and surrounding places of interest. A must visit for all chocolate lovers is the Skellig Chocolate Factory at Ballinaskellig. On a good day the drive and scenery to the factory are out of this world and not to be missed.

Nono's Cottage is a real gem - the Emerald of the Emerald Isle! Perfect for one or two couples or a small family who want to stay off the beaten track but still have easy car access to all Kerry's scenic beauty. The 2 pubs in the village are not very active but they are convenient at 5 secs and 10 secs walk away. One village shop is 20 secs away, the other 40. There are no eating establishments in the village but reasonable ones a short drive way in Rathmore or Barraduff. There are oodles of restaurants in Killarney, less than 30 mins drive away. Nono's is a characterful modern conversion of an old family Cottage that was also once a shop. Owner Micheal has excelled in exceeding our expectations of cleanliness, character, comfort and convenience. It is without doubt the best of the many holiday properties we have rented over the years. When booking we failed to notice that a well-behaved dog was permitted. We normally avoid such properties as we have relevant allergies. However, it is a tribute to Michael's exceptionally high cleaning standard that neither of us noticed any allergic affects. Indeed, we are happy, even keen, to return.

We stayed at Nono's Cottage for a week in July. We were impressed from the beginning - what a beautiful house with everything you could possible need for a comfortable, enjoyable stay. Our host Michael was friendly and helpful and had even left a welcome basket for us. We had a wonderful week travelling round Killarney and this was the perfect base. Clean, comfortable and a shop near by with fresh baked bread every morning. Would go back in a flash!

This house is brilliant! One of the best holiday rentals we have ever stayed in. Has everything you could possibly need and very clean and tidy. Owner was very helpful in everything we asked. Would highly recommend. We toured around Kerry and cork during our stay and the location of this property for that was great! Will definitely book again if we are down that way.

The cottage was absolutely wonderful.. The owner Michael, greeted us generously and advised us about the area and amenities. The cottage had everything in that we could have ever need for our visit. Micheal showed us ' how the cottage worked' and we didn't have any problems at all. This is the best cottage we had ever stayed in many thanks to Michael.

This property should be a five star rating.. I've stayed at four of your properties now and this one is the only one I would return to. As you rating system is not very accurate I know longer trust it. If this property is only a four star then Carmel cottage should only be a three and ferry lodge should be a two. Back to NoNo cottage,it was one of best places I've stayed at anywhere so for and I'm going to need more cottages as I'm her in England til Nov.

Absolutely beautiful cottage attention to detail was second to none, I visit the area on a regular basis and this was easily the best property I have stayed in.. It was so relaxing I never even turned on either of the 3 TV's provided. Killarney was about a 20 minute drive and the village was a perfect sleepy environment, it is beside and straight across the road from the town's two pubs. However it is so peaceful we chose to spend our 3 nights at 'home' which is exactly what it felt like. A lovely information pack is provided about the cottages history and a fantastic welcome pack provided, and the very friendly owner Micheal who lives directly behind the property is only a phone call away ( although we found any queries were answered in detail in the welcome pack, Would stay again most definitely if the opportunity ever arises.

Excellent cottage and very well appointed.. Located in a small village close to 2 shops, post office and 2 pubs. Could not ask for better. The owner, Michael, was very attentive and exceeded all expectations. Would highly recommend.

There was nothing not to like about Nono's Cottage as everything was perfect. The accommodation was of the highest standard both in terms of facilities and decor and the location was perfect for a base to explore the area. Micheal the owner is a great host and instantly made us feel at home. He deserves the highest praise for his attention to detail and what he offers at Nono's Cottage. I would recommend this cottage to anyone without hesitation.

I can honestly say without fear of contradiction that this was the best holiday cottage that we ever stayed in. It felt less like a holiday rental and more like you own home only better. Everything from the decor to the facilities was perfect. The cottage itself is a two bedroom (sleeps four) open plan style but it does not feel like it as there is a distinct separation of kitchen from lounge. The kitchen is better then well appointed and is to a very high standard, it has a built in oven-hob, a dishwasher, microwave, toaster, kettle, coffee maker and enough crockery and cutlery for six people let alone four. There are two bedrooms each with en-suite shower room and walk in wardrobes, each bedroom also has it's own t.v. and very comfortable beds. The lounge has two sofas a large screen t.v. and a duel fuel stove ( although when we stayed it was not cold enough to justify using it, pity) and also a very neat wall mounted stereo system. The patio garden is small but is a very comfortable place to spend an evening with a glass of wine, should you get the weather, and has some interesting bits and bobs. There is even a small utility room with a washing machine and a tumble dryer and even has an extra toilet, that makes three toilets in all, brilliant. I really cannot fault this place and the owner, Mr Daly,is a very friendly, warm and generous person. He has thought of everything and even his guest book has a nice story to relate about the history of the cottage and it's surroundings. Talking of the surroundings the cottage is located in a very small town called Gneevguilla which has a post office a small supermarket and two pubs, as I said small, however it is located just 12 kms from Killarney and about 40 kms from Cork city so is an ideal base for exploring Kerry and west Cork. Therefore a car is essential, however there are some nice walks in the area and the locality is well worth exploring on foot. The title of my piece is Best cottage ever and if your ever lucky enough to stay here you will know why.
