Ocean View description

Holiday home
Ocean View is a detached cottage close to the village of Ballinskelligs just eight miles from Waterville. The cottage sleeps six people and has two double bedrooms and one twin room along with a family shower room. Also in the cottage is an open plan living area with kitchen, dining area and sitting area with open fire and second sitting room with double sofa bed and electric stove. Outside is off road parking for three cars and a private enclosed garden with furniture. Situated on the Skellig Ring, Ocean View is a superb base from which to tour this lovely part of the county.

Located on the magnificent Skellig Ring between Waterville and Valentia Island, on the forthcoming Wild Atlantic Way, with wild rugged coastlines, scattered islands, vast mountains and high passes, the seaside area of Ballinskelligs sits on the attractive Ballinskelligs Bay and is an Irish-speaking area with a unique history and culture. Once the land base for the monks of Skellig Michael, the surrounding area has numerous prehistoric and early Christian ruins along its shores.

County Kerry is a mystical and unspoilt part of Ireland, with spectacular natural beauty and a fascinating history. Facing the Atlantic Ocean, it features many sandy beaches, rocky inlets and stunning peninsulas.

The cottage was as accurately described by Sykes and, generally, we had a nice time there during our stay.. Cottage Positives: 1. The DVD player provided was essential as there was a very poor selection of TV channels (e.g. no BBC). 2. The double bed was extremely comfortable and we slept well. 3. The location was quiet and peaceful with beautiful sea views to the rear. Cottage Negatives: 1. The water pressure was extremely low and the toilet took what seemed like hours to refill. We were a couple and it didn’t bother us that much, but with a family of 4/5 it could be a real problem. 2. Two power cuts in the first two days didn’t help. The second one lasted for many hours and was a real problem in an all electric house. 3. The toilet seat broke off after two days so we bought a better quality one locally. 4. The dishwasher packed up after a week and hadn’t been repaired by the time we left a week later. 5. With very little to watch on telly, WIFI would have been a godsend to us. It was mostly available in local cafes.

Bed linen and towels were included in the rent though not specified.. It would be handy to have a starter pack with milk and bread as the local shop closes early and the next nearest shop is around 10km away. The scenery is amazing and the choice of local beaches is fantastic. Beach wise there is something for every one - beaches for body boarding, rock pooling, sand castle building, snorkelling, fishing, kayaking etc.
