  • "The property was set in a lovely location with superb views of the mountains."

    We were met by the lovely owner and shown around and given instructions on how to set the boiler etc. The owner had also provided a much needed bottle of milk and a delicious apple pie. The property is in easy reach of Killorglin and on the Ring of Kerry making it an excellent base. We had a very comfortable stay in the property and would recommend it.

  • "Hillgrove House is a wonderful rental and John O'Connor a cordial and friendly host."

    The BIG extra here is the view of mountains across the valley with changing light and clouds to endlessly entertain during morning coffee at the picnic table out front. A wonderful experience. Barb, Dick, Christine, Patrick, Eugeine

  • "For the money we paid everything all expectations were met."

    Possibly a viewing card in the sky box in the kitchen could be made available for use as we had to obtain a now box in order to watch tv. Also blind on the window that opens in the lounge could be lowered so it fills the whole window. Instead of part way in able to put out all the light and sun not just partially. Otherwise a very enjoyable relaxing holiday was had by all. Just what the doctor needed

  • "We had a wonderful 2 weeks in Hillgrove House."

    It’s in a great location - close but not too close to the town. Killorglin has every amenity you could need on holidays and a exceptionally well stocked supermarket. The view from the house is breathtaking and was such a joy to behold each morning - coming from a crowded city - a real bonus. Lots of space around the house for children to play and the location was central for travelling to beaches and other attractions. A great holiday all round and we hope to return again next year.

    There is a great view over the mountains, as you lie up at the fire, (after a hot bath) after a big day out in the mountains! After a lovely meal out in the town we were able to walk home. John was a great hospitable host and ensured we had everything we needed. We have recommended Hillgrove to friends and look forward to returning.
