Situated on the Kerry & Skellig Rings: the elevated west-facing house offers excellent views from all rooms, especially of Valentia Island.. It is a perfect base for exploring the Kerry and Dingle peninsulas, Inch Strand is one hour away. For many this part of Ireland is its finest, with plenty to fill two weeks, and about as far west as you can go in Europe. Cahersiveen is a two mile walk 'along the back-road with nice views along the way, the town should satisfy all needs and hosts interesting bars, shops, cafes, and a quay.
The house is also used for the owner's holidays so feels more like a home than some holiday lets and had everything we needed including some basic essentials and goodies on arrival. There is a powerful shower on each floor, the ground floor includes a bathroom with double+single bedroom that might suit persons with limited mobility. The sheep in the back yard, although lovely to see, were sensibly fenced off to avoid contact with humans. Most systems were quick to find and how-to-use, although on a general note the holiday-let industry would do well to learn that guests don’t want to spend hours searching for necessities and how they work. Unlike comm’s nightmares experienced all over Scotland last year, we were surprised to get 4g ‘everywhere’ and forever thankful the owners supplied good wifi: setting aside social media noise, some people have to be able to keep-in-touch with other worlds. Overall: good value, top location, all facilities, and easy communications with both Hogans and the owners. Highly recommended.
