  • "We had a pleasant stay at Fraoch."

    It’s a good base for visiting County Kerry which is stunning. The garden is peaceful with birds and the occasional hare. But there were a few points of concern. The electrical sockets for the TV were faulty so we had to find another way to watch TV. The owner said she would get an electrician to look at it on the changeover day. About twice daily we had a deafening noise from the water tank in the roof when filling up so you may want to avoid flushing in the night. The owner said it was ok and nothing to worry about but it doesn’t make for a completely restful stay. You may need to know that there’s no microwave. Also you may want to bring your own hairdryer as one isn’t provided.

  • "Just returned from Paradise!"

    Fraoch is a dream house. You have not rated this property high enough in your description of the property. From the setting of the house to the whole layout and furnishing of same it is so beautiful. Each and every detail - from the curtains, bedlinen, towels everything is top class and beautiful. Seven of us stayed in the house and it was so spacious. Furnished to the highest standard there was nothing more we could have asked for or needed. Actually I have come home with some great renovation ideas for my own home. I will definitely be booking this property again sooner rather than later. My very highest compliments to the owners - you have impeccable taste.

  • "It was in a great location."

    Bernie was excellent. The place was so clean and everything we needed was there and more. I don't think the pictures do the cottage justice. It's in a stunning location and so spacious, close enough to amenities but far enough away to have a sense of tranquility as well away from the hustle and bustle of every day life. We will certainly be back.

  • "This house was in a very peaceful, scenic setting in the hills just outside Waterville."

    It was a great base for exploring the Ring of Kerry, Valentia Island, The Skelligs, local Blue Flag beaches and other outdoor activities. It would only be suitable for visitors with their own transport.
