This year me and my partner have decided to do something different this year for Christmas together with this sister, her partner and their 6 year old boy. So we flew to Ireland for our very first time and decided to book a cottage for our stay.
I must say that we have made a great decision! First of all the location is great since it's not far from town where you can find many shops (such as Aldi, Lidl) and a lot of pubs and restaurants to visit which was great! Secondly, Gail is genuinely one of the nicest lady we've met! She was very helpful, very accommodating and she left us a lot of goodies when we arrived!
Even one time when we had a problem with our TV, 5 minutes after I called her she came over to the house, then 30 minutes after that she came back with a brand new TV box!! :)

Thank you Gail for your help. We have enjoyed our stay. House was always warm and cosy and had everything we needed!

Recommendation: If you are hiring a car or have one already do go to Kilkenny. The drive to Kilkenny from Kenmare is amazing!

Immaculate presentation, great location in walking distance to town, central spot for exploring Kerry region and fantastic host. There is not one thing else you could need.

“Great cottage!”

We received a very warm welcome from Gail and a thorough explanation of all the wonderful features of the cottage. Of course, the welcome package of eggs, bread, wine, cake and chocolate was nice as well and much appreciated. The house was clean, the beds comfortable and the extra powder room downstairs was a nice bonus. It was a very relaxing week! Great areas to visit, super restaurants in Kenmare, and yes, it was an easy walk into town. We also frequented Casey's, which is just down the road and were treated to a wonderful Irish song and dance performance by a fantastic group of children; several of whom were European and World champions!

Undoubtedly the best holiday accommodation we have ever had the pleasure of staying in. There was a very warm welcome awaiting us in the nature of wine.. Chocolates.. Cake.. Bread.. Milk.. Eggs.. in addition to the personal greeting by Gail with a tour of the facilities.. Instructions on the use of the amenities.. and local knowledge of the places to see and things to do in Kerry.
We had a fabulous 1 week break and will definitely be returning in the future.

“A beautiful, comfortable home away from home”
Reviewed 26 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Gail could not have been more welcoming, with a very extensive welcoming pack on arrival. The house is very well equipped, everything you need. Beds are very comfortable, and pillows too, which is very important. Plenty of literature in the house about places to see, and things to do. A visit to the Ewe Sculpture Garden, between Kenmare and Glengariff, is a must. The house is a few minutes walk to Kenmare town, where you'll find excellent shops and restaurants. The house is situated on the Ring of Kerry route, so very handy. If you find yourself at Moll's Gap, between Kenmare and Killarney you must stop at the Pancake Café for something to eat. Pancakes to die for!
Will definitely come back. Thank you Gail.
