“Our 10th visit and still fabulous”
Reviewed 6 November 2011

We've just returned from our 10th visit to Old Killarney Cottages/Old Killarney Village and would be happy to return again. (We stayed for the Bank Holiday weekend and on until the following Saturday) Administration of the complex has changed this year but is still as pleasant as ever.

The houses are comfortable and spacious and all 3 bedrooms have ensuites. The kitchen is functional with dishwasher and washer/dryer. The house was clean when we arrived but there were a small number of niggly issues (maintenance issues that were not immediately apparent) and these are easily remedied and have been pointed out to administration.

Rules have now changed and one can now bring one's dog to stay for a charge of €20. We didn't bring our fellow but he would have loved it. There were some lovely well-behaved dogs on leads but we didn't hear any barking or feel put out by them.

While there we took trips to the Ring of Kerry, The Ring of Dingle, Muckross Gardens, Ross Castle, Torc Waterfall, Glengarriff and Gougane Barra. We ate in Macs Restaurant which we would also recommend.

Aggie and her husband - the new administration - are lovely to deal with.

We certainly have no hesitation in recommending this location for a lovely holiday experience.

Room Tip: All the rooms are excellent. However the "Type C" houses (3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms) are th...

We stayed here over the October bank holiday and had a brilliant time, The cottage was lovely & cosy got a real surprise how big it was inside, everything was inside you would need for self catering, Clean and tidy and in a excellent location & the site has been kept very well, with a friendly pub on the site. We couldn't fault anything about these cottages, The Couple that run this site couldn't do enough for us really polite and friendly, We took our pet dog which was a real bonus, Would highly recommend these cottages to anyone, We enjoyed our stay so much we are booking again for Easter next year.

We stayed for 10 days and had a really lovely holiday at these cottages. The proprietor was so nice and unintrusive. The cottages are so deceiving on the outside, as they are so spacious inside. Very cosy and very convienient to Killarney Town. They could do with a lick of paint though, as they look kind of worn on the outside which is a shame. The kids playground is also in need of attention. Tip: Bring your own pillows and blankets. The duvets and pillows are really thin and in need of replacing. Overall though, it was great and we're definately going there again next year.

it was ok. the 3 bedrooms house was big ,but very simple. the design is traditional, and it felt like going back on time, which is quite unique and fun, in a way. not the cleanest. it has a very nice and large playground ,but there is no privacy in it. the one tv is old and small. the drier is v-e-r-y slow.

We chose here so we could bring our dog which worked out well. No wi fi as advertised which was a big thing for teenage daughter. No DVD player as advertised which could have been useful with the kids. Plenty of space - comfortably sleeps 8 with 3 bathrooms. Not the cleanest - certainly didn't get a fresh smell. Good to have bar/restaurant on site - again not the cleanest. Two miles from Killarney town - but dangerous roads to walk. Overall a very enjoyable holiday. Do shop around for best price. There was a huge variance in price being paid for the same week - we paid about 550 where others paid about 800!
