“A home away from home!!”
Reviewed 15 April 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Have been staying in Sunset Cottage at least twice a year since 2007 and from our very first visit we knew this place was special. Ballinskelligs is a beautiful place where a warm welcome and friendly greeting awaits you wherever you go. The house itself is equipped with everything you could need for your stay. A large sitting/dining room with large table with seating for up to 10 people. The kitchen is well equipped and there is a large downstairs bathroom with fab jacuzzi bath.There are 3 good sized bedrooms downstairs. Upstairs there is the master bedroom with ensuite shower room and there is a second sitting room with large l-shaped sofa and tv, perfect if there are older children staying. The house has views to die for and is in an unrivalled location, a stones throw from Ballinskelligs pier where you can take a boat to visit the Skellig Islands. The fabulous blue flag beach is a ten minute walk from the house. There is plenty of things to do on your doorstep and the owners have provided information on all there is to see and do to help you plan your stay.
The owners of the house are extremely welcoming and friendly. Each time we visit it gets harder to leave and I count the days until we can visit this little piece of heaven again.

“Astrophotographers dream! (Fuschia Cottage)”
Reviewed 12 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

person found this review helpful

We actually stayed at fuschia cottage which is up the road from this house. Dessy Cronin was also the landlord and he couldn't be nicer or more helpful! We had farm fresh eggs and a bottle of red wine waiting for us on arrival(a lovely touch) and Des recommended some great hikes ( Bolus head loop walk) and local attractions. The house was spacious and we had 2 children and 2 dogs with us( one an Irish wolfhound) . The beautiful Ballinskelligs beach was a 2 minute walk down the road . I am keen on astrophotography and the stars at night are spectacular as Ballinskelligs is located in the Kerry dark reserve area. The local people are so friendly and welcoming I cannot wait to return again !

“Spectacular view, lovely house”
Reviewed 5 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

My extended family and I stayed for a few nights as a stopover on our journey around the Ring of Kerry. The house is very comfortable with large rooms that easily accommodated 5 adults. The views were spectacular and we enjoyed the beauty of the entire area tremendously. I would recommend this to any family interested in staying in the area.

“Nice holiday cottage”
Reviewed 22 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We enjoyed our time in Ballinskelligs and could not have asked for a better host than Des. Everything in the cottage was perfect and the local scenery was beautiful. It was a bit remote and since we were there during the off season, felt a little lonely at times. We had a difficult time finding restaurants that were open (including in the bigger towns of Caherciveen and Waterville ). The only hesitation I would have in recommending the cottage to others is the neighbour’s dogs. There must be 8-10 dogs and they bark and howl in unison. I should note that the house seems to be pretty soundproof; it didn’t keep me awake and didn’t seem to disturb my children either. But if there are light sleepers in your party or you want to have the windows open, it may be an issue.
