  • "We loved the house in The Bay."

    It had great facilities, was well heated, very comfortable and clean.Our dog enjoyed the space outside, the donkey and dogs Jessie and Misty. There is an ensuite to the main bedroom and the other bedroom is a good-sized room for two adult guests also. It was nice to have a bath and shower in the bathroom. We liked John the owner, who was very helpful when needed and yet did not intrude. All in all it was a very pleasant stay in a lovely area overlooking Caherdaniel beach which was the jewel in the crown with this property.We spent everyday on it and the dog loved the beach and waves.It proximity to Waterville, valencia, Caherciveen,Sneem and Kenmare make it a very desirable location at any time of the year.

  • "We absolutely loved our stay at The Bay."

    John, the owner, was so lovely and incredibly helpful. This is the most well equipped house we’ve ever stayed in, they have thought of everything and it’s even better than the pictures on the website! The views are stunning and it is such a lovely peaceful area. Of course the stay was made all the more amazing by the beautiful Rudy, the friendliest donkey we’ve ever met. Our son would have taken him home given the chance! Thank you again to John for a lovely stay, we will definitely be back in the future and would recommend to anyone and everyone.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay."

    The house is in a perfect location with beautiful views of Derrynane beach. The beach, local pubs, shops and playground are only a very short drive away. The house was clean, comfortable and fully equipped with everything you might need. The open plan kitchen living room area was great for socialising. We also loved the enclosed garden area it was ideal for our dog and little toddler. Our toddler really enjoyed looking at the sheep and donkey in the field beside too. We shall definitely be back and recommending it to our friends!!

  • "We had a wonderful week at The Bay in Caherdaniel."

    The house was the perfect location for a calm, relaxing break in Kerry, a short drive to the beach and walking distance to the nearest pub. The house had everything we needed, well equipped, clean and with stunning views. We couldn’t have felt more welcomed by our host. We will definitely be back again for another break next year!

  • "The location was stunning."

    It was right in the middle of a working farm - and the views are gorgeous. The cottage was clean, warm and cosy - with everything you would require. Lovely people, fabulous walks and an endless variety of terrain to explore. Local pub and restaurant within easy walking distance ... a perfect rental if you want quiet simplicity and natural beauty. Definitely will go back.

  • "Excellent location with a beautiful view."

    The cottage is comfortable and spacious. The heating is good and was necessary for the first couple of days. Owners nearby and friendly and we're available if needed. The only slight criticism is the lack of saucepans, bowls and chopping boards for food preparation and cooking knives. Some new towels would be nice.
