We were looking for somewhere that would except dogs for our Ring of Kerry trip and what a find! Josephine was great from start to end of our two night stay. When we booked through the site she replied promptly and said we can contact her with any questions we may have. She also gave detailed directions to this lovely remote cottage. We also met her husband in the second day moving his cattle to another field - our two dogs didn't know what was going on. They never seen cows before :)
When we first arrived we decided to light the fire straight away as there was a chill outside. We'd brought fire lighters and wood but to our surprise the fire was all ready to go - we had to do was light it! There is a pub / shop / petrol station close by but remember it's remote countryside you are in so they are small and basic. Kenmare is a 20 ish min drive away so we went there a walk around the village (literally) and stop in for one drink. We didn't put the telly on for the whole two nights stay - with the views to the front and rear of the cottage we didn't need it on. There was a few board games in the house also and plenty of maps and information about the area. When Josephine dropped by on the first night she suggested we go to the chocolate factory which we did and I'm grateful for as we were starving by the time we got there. It seems that every village we went to see if we could have lunch the places were closed.
This place was perfect for us.

We stayed here for three nights with our two young boys. The area around Fern Cottage was our favorite in Co. Kerry. My wife took the boys for walks along the country roads while I fished for salmon and trout on nearby lakes and river. O'Neill's Blackwater Tavern is just down the road and a good place for live music on Friday nights, or just a pint after day spent fishing. It's worth noting that electric and oil usage is billed separately at the end of stay, and paid in cash, but we didn't mind the minimal extra cost since we washed and dried numerous loads of laundry after our first week on the road in Ireland.

The cottage is delightful -homey, cozy and beautiful. Josephine is a wonderful hostess. She was very helpful in answering our questions, both before and during the trip. She also makes a delicious banana bread.

“Pleasant cottage”
Reviewed 7 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Cute, neat cottage in the hills. Lovely and quiet. No too far from town, but need own car. Kenmare and Sneem not far away and with great pubs and restaurants and really friendly people.
