    “Wonderful Holiday Home”
    Our extended family, some from Canada, have just spent the most wonderful week in River House in Sneem Co. Kerry. This holiday home is just so comfortable and nice and cosy and has so much for a family no matter what age the children. It has beautiful views and a private garden where the children can fly kites and play bat ball and see lots of wild life. The hosts, Noel and Margaret just cant do enough to make your stay as enjoyable as possible and I would like to say a big 'Thank You' to ...
