“Great cottage!”
Reviewed 6 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

person found this review helpful

We received a very warm welcome from Gail and a thorough explanation of all the wonderful features of the cottage. Of course, the welcome package of eggs, bread, wine, cake and chocolate was nice as well and much appreciated. The house was clean, the beds comfortable and the extra powder room downstairs was a nice bonus. It was a very relaxing week! Great areas to visit, super restaurants in Kenmare, and yes, it was an easy walk into town. We also frequented Casey's, which is just down the road and were treated to a wonderful Irish song and dance performance by a fantastic group of children; several of whom were European and World champions!

Undoubtedly the best holiday accommodation we have ever had the pleasure of staying in. There was a very warm welcome awaiting us in the nature of wine.. Chocolates.. Cake.. Bread.. Milk.. Eggs.. in addition to the personal greeting by Gail with a tour of the facilities.. Instructions on the use of the amenities.. and local knowledge of the places to see and things to do in Kerry.
We had a fabulous 1 week break and will definitely be returning in the future.

“A beautiful, comfortable home away from home”
Reviewed 26 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Gail could not have been more welcoming, with a very extensive welcoming pack on arrival. The house is very well equipped, everything you need. Beds are very comfortable, and pillows too, which is very important. Plenty of literature in the house about places to see, and things to do. A visit to the Ewe Sculpture Garden, between Kenmare and Glengariff, is a must. The house is a few minutes walk to Kenmare town, where you'll find excellent shops and restaurants. The house is situated on the Ring of Kerry route, so very handy. If you find yourself at Moll's Gap, between Kenmare and Killarney you must stop at the Pancake Café for something to eat. Pancakes to die for!
Will definitely come back. Thank you Gail.

“An oasis of calm after Dublin”
Reviewed 19 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This was my third stay at Millfield House and it keeps getting better. Gail rolls out the best welcome in Ireland! My husband and I spent 5 days in Dublin city and were so looking forward to the peace and quiet of Millfield House. The house was spotless as always and now has the added bonus of wifi. I had brought my laptop so I was able to communicate with the family at home, check out menus for the area restaurants and check in for my return flight. The weather was perfect and just cool enough for a fire in the evening. Gail was kind enough to bring more firewood half way through the week because she anticipated we would need it. We hated to leave. Kenmare is a perfect place to stay to see the sights of Kerry and is a charming little town. The house is stocked with everything you need for a perfect vacation. We will return!

“A warm and comfortable "home from home" even in the depths of Winter”
Reviewed 7 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Thank you Gail for making our stay in Kenmare during the last days of 2014 and early days of 2015 so lovely. Probably the highlight was the open fire - which we lit every evening - very romantic for us city folks! The house is very well equipped and we very much appreciate that you recently installed WiFi!
