Self-Catering Reviews

October 2018
From the family room, the dining room and the master bedroom, there are incredible views of Smerwick harbor and the mountains of dingle. Directly to the north are the three sisters mountain range. This is off the beaten path, but well worth it. We could just sit outside and see heaven all around us. At night the quiet was stunning and only disturbed by the bleating of sheep or the mooing of a cow The house is perfect and extremely well done. We felt totally comfortable and at ease.

An excellent stay! Beautiful home, a bit off of the beaten path (25 min from Dingle town). Perfect for a family get-away!
April 2017
Excellent house in a lovely part of Kerry. A high standard of finish throughout the house. Prepared and presented very well. Very easy to deal with the host, before and during the stay. Highly recommended

The area was rustic and wild and so beautiful. The house was really lovely, clean and everything we expected but the views were way better than anything we could of imagined.
