    The cottage is in a perfect location for exploring. The views are amazing from the house. Wifi and laundry facilities are in the house. Will look to book again.

  • "Brandon Cottage was the perfect place to stay for our first visit to the Dingle Peninsula."

    We received all the information that we needed to arrive and for our stay, and the owner was communicative and accommodating. The cottage is perfectly situated, with walks and bike rides possible from the front door, and only a short drive away from beaches and attractions. We’re already thinking of booking next year!

  • "If you want to stay in a cottage surrounded by mountains and a 6 minute drive from the beach, look no further."

    Mount Brandon cottage is such a friendly house, we loved staying there. It has everything you could wish for. Our family longed for some peace and quiet and we certainly found it at Mount Brandon cottage! We loved it.

  • "The location is lovely, with great walks and beaches nearby."

    It is a big house suitable for a large family, but the house needs a deep clean and some updating.

  • "The property was fabulous."

    He needs to update his photos and information because there now is WiFi and a new kitchen!We will return next year please God, as we had a wonderful time. The house is great for children, in a lovely peaceful location. It's well kitted out in the kitchen and we all slept well in the comfortable beds .We would recommend this property.

  • "Excellent property in the most stunning of locations with scenic panoramic views."

    House has all mod cons that one requires. Easy communication with Brendan the owner and Stacy the caretaker. Village close by with good entertainment and hospitality in Harvey’s/O’Conners Bar. Also Murphy’s Bar at the end of the pier in Brandon Harbour is another hospitable public bar .One piece of advice is that the underground heating takes at least 6 hours to warm up if not more but once it does you will not need to light open fire unless you want the romance of it. We would certainly return if the God’s keep smiling on us.

    L'aménagement est très simple et suffisant. Manque de matériel de cuisine et aspirateur qui n'aspire pas.

  • "The location of Brandon Cottage is wonderful,surrounded by mountains and local coast but unfortunately the house itself was a tired and not clean."

    The furniture ,some of which was broken(chairs and bedside cabinet)It seemed like no cleaning had been done in preparation for guests,orange peel and peanuts strewn on bedroom floor and down back of bed.Dirty kitchen floor and dust everywhere.We also had an infestation of flies indoors in early April which we spent time each morning destroying.This home could be a lovely place to stay if the above issues were addressed. On arrival we spent time cleaning the home and found the vacuum cleaner not working,no suction.Communication with the housekeeper was not easy ,we were promised a replacement vacuum cleaner which never materialised. Wonderful location but sadly the cleanliness and tired and unloved home and poor communication by housekeeper was a disappointment.

    Travelled with two young children who loved it. Very comfortable beds and loads of room for a larger group. Perfect for families exploring Kerry. Owner and caretaker extremely nice to deal with. Would definitely return! Valerie

  • "As an Irish customer I was unable to avail of the insurance you offered as I had to be a UK resident and the cheaper insurance option only shows up after the the more extensive one is refused which is a bit sneaky."

    The house is spacious and well equipped the grounds and garden are generous and well maintained and the surroundings and views are spectacular and breathtaking. It is a beautiful part of the world with fine people and each and everyone of us enjoyed ourselves immensely. Value for money was good.

  • "Nice spacious house."

    Very reasonable price. We booked house for 4 adults & 6 kids & while sleeping areas were perfect the sitting room would benefit from an extra sofa. Wi-Fi was only sporadic & would have been nice to have some TV service for kids but house worked well overall for our group.
