“A little disappointing....”
Reviewed 24 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Bad start - no hot water on the first night due to a boiler glitch. Argh! Issue resolved the following morning. To compensate for the overnight hassle, the owner kindly provided us with a very generous gift voucher - dinner for two in a local restaurant. Thanks Pat – much appreciated.
The disappointing start continued as we prepared to cook our first meal. Alas, much of the kitchen crockery, utensils and glassware could have been cleaner.
Minor gripes included furniture that was a bit on the sparse side. A couple of small coffee tables would have been welcome. The ceiling lighting was a bit iffy – rather gloomy if truth be told. Ok for TV watching, but not too clever if you wanted to read. A couple of freestanding lights would make all the difference. Surprisingly, both TVs were tricky to operate. Indeed, Pat had to come out to the property on the first night to set them up. A common problem apparently.
On the plus side, the property is modern, comfortable and spacious with a large open-plan kitchen. There are terrific views from the lounge – including Blarney Castle. It is in an excellent location for sightseeing drives to the Ring of Kerry, Dingle Peninsula, Kinsale etc.
Blarney itself is a pleasant town with ample shops and food stores. It has a variety of eating places - from ubiquitous pub grub venues to a couple of fine dining restaurants. There is also an excellent bus service to Cork.
Yes, It wouldn’t take much to turn this holiday accommodation into a real 5 star gem.

Hi Enzo, Thanks for the review. We will ensure all the kitchen utensils and glassware get a proper clean. There is already a coffee table in the living room but we can add one to the kitchen also along with reading lamps in both the kitchen and living room. This is the first time someone has pointed out these items in 4 years I have been runn Self Catering Blarney but we shall remedy asap. Thanks Pat

“Fabulous property with stunning view.”
Reviewed 11 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Had a fabulous 6 night stay in this spacious property with stunning views of Blarney and Blarney castle. Although there is a big lounge area we loved the hub of the kitchen and seating area, so barely used the lounge. Would definately rent again.

“Highlight of our trip to Ireland”
Reviewed 2 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We traveled to Ireland with our 2 university students, a college student, and our 3 year old. We absolutely loved the place. Wish we could have stayed longer. So comfortable and homey. It was very clean. We were very warm and cozy, after we bought logs at the store, per the notes left by the owner. The packet was very helpful and informative. There was ample parking, and an outside clothesline. Beautiful kitchen fitted out with every appliance needed, including a dishwasher, huge refrigerator . We loved the wood burner, and the gas fire. There are 4 bedrooms, which was so nice for our group. We thought the beds were comfortable. We appreciated having a bathtub. Loved all the books, and music. We put on music in the morning and ate breakfast to beautiful Irish tunes, while looking out at the Blarney Castle! Two Tv's for our two different age groups, was very helpful. We were supplied with a cot and toys for a baby, but our 3 year old loved playing with them. We loved having a washing machine and did in fact wash two loads...our 3 year old had a bad 'accident', so it was much appreciated to be able to do a wash! The house was well fitted with everything we needed...except soap, tea towels or kitchen paper towels..which we had no problem working around. The grocery was just a 5 minute walk away. It is after all, a "Self Catering" rental home! It truly was a wonderful place, perfectly positioned for tourism. The only draw back in the whole experience is that there is no wifi. It really is awful, as one wants to upload their photos and communicate at the end of the day. The pay as you go is too complicated and expensive to use. There are no other bad things to mention; but a couple of suggestions. Besides getting wifi, I would suggest a landline in the home, in case of an emergency, as those of us from around the world do not know how to dial up the local emergency services, or some may not even have a phone with them, to call for help, in case of an emergency. The other suggestion is that instructions be included on how to re-lock the door! We had a terrible time figuring that out! We eventually did, but it was frustrating while we were trying to get out the door! That was when we wished we had a house phone where we could call the owner to ask about locking the door!

Thanks for the lovely review. In the next month I had already planned will have free wifi in place as the wifi in proving difficult at times. I will supply some instructions on the door with the house information sheet. The house information sheets have all the emergency contact numbers but I will but them into a separate folder for easy access.

“Excellent show”
Reviewed 19 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The house was lovely. Full of useful cooking utensils and equipment. Also bits and pieces of useful foodstuffs, ie, condiments, sauces etc. Location was fantastic, view was wonderful. All in all, very suitable for a family with children. Would definitely book again

“Perfect location and lovely house.”
Reviewed 16 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We only stayed for a couple of nights to go to a family wedding in Blarney but the house was perfectly located with everything within easy walking distance, and the rooms were spacious and well kitted out so I would wholeheartedly recommend it and would be happy to go back for a longer stay.
