  • "Excellent cottage."

    Everything we needed. A great cottage for two people. The owner, Maurice, couldn't do enough for us. We were lucky to find this cottage as your website does not list it immediately when a search for two into it. Thank you Maurice

  • "This accommodation honoured its promises as advertised and more!"

    Located conveniently close to the picturesque seaside town of Ballybunion and bigger towns such as Listowel and Tralee, it represented the perfect balance between serene countryside and local amenities. The lodge itself is charmingly intimate and exceptionally clean and comfortable with superb views of the surrounding countryside. We were very impressed with the friendly, helpful yet respectfully non-intrusive service of our wonderful hosts Maurice and Angela. My husband and I have been left with treasured memories of a special time in a house we called our home for the duration of our stay. Highly recommend. Ciara and Paul

    Maurice our host, was tremendous! He even fixed an electric gadget of mine! We had great weather which obviously helped, but our hosts advice & recommendations were invaluable in our decision making! Ideally situated to make the best of The Kerry area.

  • "The self-contained accommodation looked out on to a peaceful rural scene, but was close to the town of Ballybunion with its cliff walk and excellent and extensive beach."

    We found it a good base for exploring the area. The ferry at Talbert was about 20 minutes drive away and enabled us to visit Killkey with its dramatic cliff walk. The Dingle peninsular was quite accessible also. The lounge in the accommodation was light and airy and the kitchen facilities very good. We have no hesitation in recommending this holiday accommodation.

    Angela and Maurice were very welcoming and even brought over a toy for our little boy to play with. The accommodation was charming- clean, fresh, filled with natural light and well designed.

    It was very spacious for a 1 bed property. The view from the lounge out through the patio doors up to Knockanore mountain, a great vista. The owners provide a very warm welcome upon arrival and the cottage facilities are of the highest standard. Highly recommended.

  • "We have been renting cottages from Hogan's /Sykes for a number of years now, and have seen all kinds and types of cottage some good, some not so good, but I have to say this one is by far 'The' best We have stayed in."

    People ,often come on these feedback columns, and moan about things ( albeit in their mind totally justified) I can't find a single thing to say against this accommodation. The ,location was brilliant, everything in the cottage worked, it had central heating which most of the Irish cottages do not have. The cottage was purpose built by Maurice ( owner) for his mother in ,law, so obviously he has put evefrytbhibg in to to make her life comfortable. She ;passed and now he rents it out, all the people who go there will be getting the benefit of the effort he ;put into it for her So to sum up, this is a 1st ,class cottage, with a good owner, who likes to crack endless jokes with his clientele, I found him very endearing, and he cares about what his customers want No I am not related to bhim and he is not my brother lol !.

    This was exactly as shown in your Holiday Details and the owner could not have been more helpful advising us of things to do and places to visit together with the location of suitable hostelries in Ballybunnion and surrounding areas. If you want peace and tranquility, magnificent views and sandy beaches, this is the place to come. Albert F. Stuart

    easy to find. Very well designed, a great place to relax and chill out.
