    “Beautiful House in Fabulous Location”

    We stayed here for our family summer holiday and couldn't have picked a more perfect house. It was spacious, comfortable, well equipped and spotlessly clean. The garden was massive and we were delighted that it was enclosed as we brought our dog with us and she had a ball. The location is very rural, but this suited us perfectly, its what you want when you holiday in this part of Kerry. We walked down to the local cafe/pub, it took about 20mins. It's an ideal location for exploring the Ring of Kerry, about 15 mins from Sneem and about 45 mins from Kenmare. There are lots of beautiful beaches in the local area too. I would definitely go back here, the house was a real home from home. The kids loved it too. The owner met us on arrival and departure, he was very friendly and helpful.
