An amazing and memorable stay at Knockcarrig House!
We were a family of 8 adults and the house was homely and yet modern and spacious and it was great to have en-suites and walk-in wardrobes to each room. Everything was in pristine condition and the house was well equipped down to the smallest detail. It really made a luxurious and comfortable home-from-home and we didn’t want to leave and shall be back. Noelle made us most welcome and left an amazing hamper with all the essentials - and 2 decent bottles of wine. Well located Killarney 10 mins away with loads of restaurants and bars and also a great supermarket less than 5 mins away and close to the ring of Kerry. You couldn’t ask for a better location with country views and yet mins from amenities. Many thanks Noelle for a memorable stay. The Fitzsimons Family.

10/10! Outstanding customer service, fantastic rental house
We spent a glorious 7 days at the Kockcarrig House with two other couples. Noelle is by far the best owner/operator we've ever worked with when staying at a rental property. She had excellent suggestions and insider knowledge to make the entire trip effortless. We first arrived at the house to find her with a basket of goodies to get our vacation started and every morning she brought all of us fresh local pastries! The house was lovely and each of the 5 bedrooms had its own bathroom/shower. A full-size refrigerator and a great kitchen enable us to take advantage of cooking a few meals at home. She even had a great desktop stereo system in the kitchen (that you can link via Bluetooth) and good WiFi throughout the house. We used the Knockcarrig House as a home base for day trips to many of the surrounding areas. I would absolutely stay here again with my family and cannot recommend Noelle enough. She and the house are fantastic!

Family Trip to Killarney
Just returned from an amazing holiday in Ireland and was made special by Knockcarrig house. Noelle was a lovely welcoming hostess and left some lovely welcoming goodies. The house was beautiful and had so much room for us, all as we had 3 families here. The views are, amazing too. The children loved the Rabbits and Cows here. It's, an ideal base for travelling round the Ring of Kerry. Wish we had stayed longer. Taxi driver recommended was great got us to our meal through busy traffic on time! Lovely memories made here.

Knockcarrig
We just returned from Knockcarrig House where 6 of us (3 couples) stayed for a week and made it our central hub while we explored all that Kerry and Cork have to offer. Each bedroom has it's own bathroom in-suite and the common areas were comfortable for us to enjoy each other's company. The home is well appointed, and exceptionally clean, with dishes and anything you would need to prepare meals on your own. We cooked breakfast and dinner a few times, enjoying coffee on the patio each morning and stars at night in the summer sky. Then we ventured out several days to Dingle, Cork, and Ring of Kerry which were all within driving distance. While the home is lovely, Noelle is your host with the most and uses her local knowledge and connections to bring you memorable experiences that are unique to the area as only a true local can. She even left us a lovely hamper of goodies to get us started. As I look back at the photos, I see laughter, joy, friendship, and relaxation made possible with the lovely location, setting of Knockcarrig, and care of an amazing host. We highly recommend and wouldn't be surprised if we made it a point to revisit again.

Breathtaking Location and Luxurious Accomodations
We just completed a two-week stay at Knockcarrig House. It exceeded our expectations in every way! The location is beautiful, secluded and very quiet and the house is very well-appointed. Everything we needed was available to us! We had two groups of friends come in each week and everyone loved having their own private rooms with ensuite bathrooms. The kitchen and living areas are very spacious which allowed us to all hang out very comfortably together. We had the best time! Killarney is also a great central location to stay in if you want to explore County Kerry. I LOVED Knockcarrig House and was so sad when it was time to go.

Fantastic!!
Had a fabulous stay in knockcarrig house, Killarney at the end of may with my family. There was 9 of us altogether and this house was absolutely perfect. It is big, has every amenity you could need for self catering, and is close to killarney town (maybe 5-7 mins by car). The house was spotless, every bedroom en suite, large kitchen, fabulous dining area, lovely patio area for when the sun is shining (often with a couple of cows keeping us company in the paddock beside the patio!). A lovely large sitting room area too. Plenty of space for everyone. Noelle, the owner, couldn't have been nicer...she has the house spotless, everything is thought of from board games, to bathrobes! And not to mention the gorgeous welcome basket on arrival, filled with local goodies...bread, wine, chocolates...and even a bottle of bubbly and a card for my dad, as we were there to celebrate his 70th! Could not find fault with anything, everything was perfect. We hope to return again soon!! Thanks Noelle for a wonderful stay.

AMAZING 5 star stay!!
Knockcarrig was booked as a surprise for my husband 40th with our family. From the initial booking communication was seamless. On arrival we were greeted by Noelle, who gave us the guided tour, I was complete bowled over on arrival. The house is immaculate, the decor beautiful, so bright and cosy with fantastic mountain views. The attention to detail and lovely touches such as robes in each room really added to our comfort. The kitchen is well stocked with everything would ever need. Noelle left us a beautiful hamper packed with fabulous goodies such as champagne, wine, luxury chocolates, scones, milk, butter etc .. it really was such a treat! The pictures simply do not do this magnificent home justice, it was so spacious with plenty of room for our group which consisted of 9 adults and 4 children. The dining room really is a wow feature with vaulted ceilings a chandelier with a dimmer light which really added to the ambiance. It really is rare to find a home of this quality which has an en-suite to each of the 5 bedrooms.. we had an amazing stay and would not hesitate to book again, we will be back for sure. If you are considering booking.. please look no further snd book! You will not regret it. Thanks to Noelle who is the perfect host

This is an excellent holiday home that lives up to its description on the website.
Our family of 7 spent 4 days in Knockcarrig House, Killarney. We were so surprised with the quality of the house and its accommodation. The house definitely lived up to the high standard as advertised. The welcome we got from Paudie, was lovely and the care box with treats was a great surprise. The accommodation overall was to a very high standard - bedrooms and ensuite bathrooms, very well equipped kitchen, dining and sitting room - nothing was omitted. Knockcarrig House is a great base for touring all of the attractions in and around Killarney - only 5 minutes drive to the town. We visited Muckross, Torc, Sneem, as well as the town itself. I would highly recommend Knockcarrig. We will definitely be back.

Fabulous House and Host
I stayed in Knockcarrig house for 1 week in July and the house is stunning. Located just 2.5km from supermarkets and shops and less than 5km from Killarney its the perfect location if you are looking for a lot of space whilst being close to everything. All rooms in the house are ensuite with walkin wardrobes, super for our group of 8 adults. The house has a huge kitchen and dining room, we toured all day and then come together to cook each evening and had gorgeous dinners together, the kitchen was so enjoyable to cook in!! Noelle was the perfect host, ensured we had everything we needed. We all loved the house, its location and the host and will definitely be back 😁
