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.

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.

Self-Catering Reviews

The cottage is in a brilliant location by being half way around the Ring of Kerry area but because it is actually situated on the Wild Atlantic Way you do feel the peace and quiet of the area and away from the traffic of the main tourist route.. We saw a mountain goat across the road one day. There is so much to do from here without having to drive very far. Our highlights were Derrynane beach, Kerry Cliffs (with converted bus cafe), the slate quarry grotto and Geokaun mountain walk both on Valentia, the Skellig Abbey remains on Ballinskelligs Beach. McCarthy Castle on Ballinskelligs beach is great fun for climbing up into ..Ballinskelligs beach is lovely, is Blue Flag and has a lovely garden cafe with mini market on Sunday. The beach is perfect for swimming as there are few waves. SuperValu in Cahersiveen is not far away for your big shop and you can top up at Brown’s just down the road for essentials and treats...for gift shopping then Skelligs chocolate factory is a must and the Skellig gift shop just before Waterville is really big with beautiful woollens, pottery, glassware etc. Special Thanks to Mary who looks after the cottage who called on us, she is so friendly and welcoming and recommended places to eat and visit. The cottage sea views are lovely. We loved our stay and will definitely return.

This is a comfortable, welcoming, well equipped cottage set in gorgeous countryside.. It has ample space for the kids to play outside safely. Inside the bedrooms are all very comfortable and clean and there is plenty of living space. The kitchen and bathroom have everything you need. We were very comfortable and relaxed in this house. There is a lovely secluded beach ten minutes walk away - very safe for young children and with magnificent views. There is a well stocked local shop half a mile away. Cahersiveen is well worth a long visit and there is plenty to do in the area. We would definitely hope to return to Ocean View at some point in the future.

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.
