  • "The property is easy to find and beautiful."

    It’s a very spacious and tastefully decorated house, with a well equipped kitchen and comfortable beds. Spotlessly clean, which was great to see. Plenty of comfortable seating and the host was very helpful and very fast to respond to questions and to assist. My only, minor, criticism, is that we chose the house in particular for a couple of features we saw in the photos: a whirlpool bath that doesn’t seem to work, and the large aga stove. We needed to call the host quite a few times (who responded very quickly) but I was beginning to feel as though I was being troublesome. (An instruction book would help, and a pre-check before people arrive). But certainly None of us could make the whirlpool bath work, and the main aga was disabled with only the smaller stove available. Not a big thing, but I was a little disappointed. However, it is a beautiful place, well situated, well decorated, stocked, and comfortable. We would certainly stay again.

  • "We were six adults on a golfing holiday and this house was just perfect for us."

    Set in beautiful countryside it had everything we needed and more. Beautiful interior decor and design. For such a big house it was always warm and very very comfortable. Really good quality golf courses within easy reach as well as Killarney National Park and some stunning beaches. Would definitely stay here again at any time of the year. A huge thanks to our hosts for a warm welcome and a truly memorable week!

  • "Property is not as close to Killarney as stated."

    It is right beside a farm with dogs barking. Not the peaceful oasis as claimed. Owners called twice unexpectedly and without notice.

  • "A beautiful home, in immaculate condition that is very comfortable with loads of space and a very homely feel."

    Really enjoyed our stay and the owners couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. Everything that you could wish for was provided with great attention paid to detail. Would suggest a 4 slice toaster rather than a 2, for such a large property though. Thank you for letting us stay in such a beautiful property with great views and we very much hope to return.

  • "The house is beautifully decorated with great attention to detail with lots of Christmas decorations and even a Christmas tree."

    The view and the surroundings are wonderful. Joan and Pete are loving hosts and on the second day they stopped by again to check if everything is okay. We felt like at home. Unfortunately, the Google Maps link is not quite correct. The written directions are correct, but it is harder to find without the right Google Maps link. This is the correct link: https://goo.gl/maps/fiS3cMCZvhk1zVb86 The key is in a mini safe locked with a combination lock (of which I forgot the number); the safe and the number weren't mentioned in the key collection details, this is why we had to call the owner Joan which came by in a couple of minutes and helped us out and on that occasion showed us around the house.

  • "The house was beautiful."

    The owners’ daughter and son showed us around and were at the end of a phone if we needed anything (a credit to their Mom and Dad). We come from Kerry originally and we were delighted with everything, from the beautiful house to the peace and quiet. The house is situated perfectly between Tralee and Killarney and the towns of Killorglin and Castleisland are not too far of a drive either. We would definitely recommend a stay here. Sorry it took so long to write up this review. Best wishes! (The Murphy Family - Dublin)
