  • "Having stayed here in late October, early November, we can only say what a fantastic and comfortable house it is."

    Views were amazing. Tim had the heat on for us, loads of hot water, turf for the fire, wifi, etc. Couldn't ask for more and the 8 of us enjoyed the home away from home. Parking for 4 cars too. The walk to the main street is lovely on the way down, bit of a steep one on the way back but it'll work off the lunch or dinner from the restaurants in Caherciveen. Got a boat trip to Skellig Michael too and Killarney, Kenmare and Tralee are only little more than an hour away. A lot of food outlets were closed mid week this time of year but still we were able to have a sit down meal every night without leaving Caherciveen. Thanks again to Tim for the house, it made the holiday for us

  • "The bungalow was in a great location with amazing views overlooking the sea."

    It was very comfortable and homely with a wood burner in the living room. The kitchen was spacious and very well equipped. All the bedrooms were furnished to a good standard and very comfortable with an ensuite in the master bedroom. Cahersiveen was within walking distance with plenty of shops and pubs, and ideally located for our day trips. I would highly recommend!

  • "As per some other comments, the views from the property are absolutely stunning."

    The local town is about 10 minutes walk, although walking back uphill to the property is a bit of an effort. The property is well equipped but could do with upgrading the saucepans etc. Overall we were very impressed with Cahersiveen and the various towns around the ring of Kerry, including Killarney and Kenmare. I would definitely recommend this property and the beautiful location.Thanks for a great holiday.

  • "A great property in a great location."

    We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The house was spacious and well appointed. The view across the bay was fantastic. There is plenty to do and see in the area, and the town of Cahersiveen has every amenity you could require. The local pubs and restaurants are top notch. The communication from the host was great. We can't recommend it enough.

  • "We loved the location of the house."

    It was exactly as pictured on the website. There were lots of dishes and glasses. Only drawbacks were the one burner on the hob was only high temperature, that the skillets should be binned and the full mattresses were uncomfortable to us.

    The house its well laid out with lots of space and is well kept with everything you need for a stay in wonderful Cahersiveen. There isn't WIFI (which was made clear when we booked) but we were very able to get full 4/5G signal and could hotspot so all very easy. We would definitely stay again, Tom

    Very clean throughout with excellent furnishings and appliances. The views are breath taking and the location for touring the Ring of Kerry was perefect. Plenty of very good restaurants and pubs very close to the property. 5 out of 5 does not do this property justice. Highly recommended

    Best place ever! It is not our first time to rent a house in Ireland and of course not our last time! The house is nice and cosy and clean! The owner of the house is very helpful. Sitting in the house and very nice bedroom(curtains and green colour) you can see the ocean and nice garden.We were walking every day in the area! And don’t forget Valentia Island 5 minutes with the Ferry. Jannie and Siegfried

  • "Beautiful, beautiful views!"

    Very comfortable house. Wonderful surroundings- great paths to walk and explore, close to town. Excited to find an ancient standing rock in a field with sheep just a very short walk from the house! Had trouble with the clothes washer, but a call to the owner and we were able to figure it out. And I do wish it had better wi-fi, but overall a great place to relax and have fun.

  • "We set off with an early start from the Mountains of Mourne only to arrive in Gurranebane seven hours later, weary from the journey with three children in tow."

    Cahersiveen was a welcome sight and immediately the prominent church and barracks caught our attention, as did the bustle of a traditional Irish town with delightful window displays to welcome any keen tourist! We turned up the hill and arrived, with a warm, spacious and spotlessly clean 'home away from home' to welcome us on our first family stay in the Kingdom of Kerry. The laneway was adorned with wild fuchsia and montbretia, hydrangeas and flax flowered tall throughout the garden and beyond their horizon lay the stunning views towards castles, ring forts, sea and mountain that would capture our imagination and be the subject of many conversations throughout our stay. Over the course of seven days we explored Valentia Island, Dingle Bay, Sneem, Killarney National Park, Waterville, Derrynane, Rossbeigh, Caherdaniel and so much more. Our minds were occupied with stories of famous Kerrymen such as Hugh O'Flaherty, Daniel O'Connell, Thomas Sneam, and Olympic medalists. Our evenings were spent relaxing in the absolutely idyllic calm of Gurranebane were the children played on the lawn, explored the gardens and soaked up the stunning views. We felt welcome here. A woven basket of turf and a hearty stove were the perfect accompaniment to a few glasses of Oyster Bay and the constantly changing skyline provided all the relaxation we could have asked for, and more. The house itself exceeded our expectations: this felt like a happy home, which has been filled with life and laughter. The neutral colour scheme was punctuated with colourful, tasteful art, carefully selected books, a stocked pantry and well placed furniture. The beds were extremely comfortable and the cupboards filled with golf clubs, body boards, a thoughtful beach bag of buckets, spades and 'fun stuff'. Our son spent hours digging a hole on a beach and it was the best day of his holiday (clearly our historical trip to Derrynane didn't quite hit the mark!). Dining was spacious and seamless with a table in both kitchen and main dining room. It was immaculate but welcoming, inviting and well-equipped. This property will not disappoint on any level and offers everything you could possibly need for your stay in Kerry. We love to shop and dine locally when on holiday and we were met with a warm welcome everywhere in Cahersiveen. This is a wonderful coastal town that captured our hearts, and Gurranebane will most definitely capture yours! Our only regret is that we could not stay longer!

About the location


Killarney 38 miles.

The lively coastal town of Cahersiveen, birthplace of Daniel O'Connell, is ideally situated aside the River Fertha, at the foot of the Beentee Mountain, in beautiful County Kerry. Renowned in the 1800s for the salting of Atlantic fish, today the town retains strong links with the ocean, boasting an excellent harbour and a superb marina offering sailing, trout and salmon fishing and deep-sea angling opportunities. Cahersiveen provides an eclectic mix of traditional pubs and modern venues, together with a host of cafés (with free WIFI) restaurants and interesting craft and antique shops, whilst monthly street fairs present visitors with an ideal opportunity to peruse the colourful stalls of curiosities and local produce. Cahersiveen is the principle town of the Kerry International Dark Sky Reserve making it a wonderful base for astronomers. Explore the nearby hidden coves, walk the Kerry Way, visit two stone forts, discover the fascinating archaeological remains at nearby Waterville, or take a short drive or ferry crossing to the lovely Valentia Island. Skellig Michael is also well worth a visit, it is one of two impressive sea crags set in the Atlantic Ocean and was also used as the setting for scenes in the Star Wars film, The Force Awakens. With plenty to see and do, you'll want to return to this fabulous location time and time again.
