A quaint and serene little piece of Heaven.
This is a lovely, quaint, 'old-school' cottage, but with all the modern conveniences. It is well-maintained and has all the amenities one could ask for. The two bedrooms are small but very cozy. The living room is a good size. The kitchen is small but compact and manageable. The beds are very comfy. The patio area is fine. The garden is a piece of Heaven, but bring fly/bug spray or you'll be eaten alive by midges!! The bathroom is small but fine. The shower room is separate from the toilet and is also fine, but the shower area needs a lip, or more of a dip, as the floor tends to get very wet. The garden could do with some slabs, as you would drag mud into the house on a wet day. Lovely scenic area with a short drive to Knightstown, and you also have the Ring Lyne pub and restaurant which sells some tasty food. If you like the 'sound' of silence, this is the place for you and three guests. I think that covers just about everything.

Lovely House
Lovely cosy cottage. Short walk across the road you have a lovely view of the Sea. Have to go down a slope to have nice walk on the beach. The town was nearly 2km away but views were lovely from Knightown. Was a pity the patio area was very small. Spotless cottage - Valentia is a beautiful area to explore.

A really lovely holiday home
In fact, this year was the second time we stayed at Brendans for our summer holiday. Brendans cottage is a charming, traditional place to explore Valentia and the Kerry coast. The small garden is perfect to relax, the way down to the strand is just a couple of meters. The cottage has all facilities needed - the kitchen is well equipped. Brendans cottage has a very friendly owner who did all to make our stay comfortable.
