“Exceptional House but ...”
Reviewed 13 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Actually we would rate the house overall as good. To put the good things first: The house is set all by it self in a stunning and overwhelming location. Still it can be fairly easily reached (don´t bring a sports-car though as the last bit of the drive is steep gravel). Waterville is just a short drive away. The house is large and has all the comfort you can ask for. Altogether it is a really nice property.

The not so good things mainly regard the housekeeping. The whole place would have to get ship-shaped again. There were lots of dust and cobwebs in the windowsills, at the ceilings and in all the corners. The kitchen had a grease film on many things and was not really all clean.
The house has some nice and antique furniture but also a lot of rather worn stuff and altogether just too many things in the windowsills and corners. It feels a bit like someones attic with all the stuff put there that was in the way somewhere else. The furniture that is worn should be disposed of. No one likes dusty paper lampshades anymore. Futon mattresses have a limited life expectancy. Old pinewood sofas are just ugly and old radios, TV and stereos are just out. A holiday home that you rent out is not a storage place for worn furniture and old electronics. Sadly the Fireplace does not work!

A set of new mattresses, a new stereo with iPod dock for downstairs, a few new lampshades, fixing the fireplace and a lot of the other stuff just thrown out and a good cleaning and this house would just be perfect.

It was sad to see a good part of the great potential of this house being wasted by the way it is kept right now.

“Peaceful and Beautiful”
Reviewed 5 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

This is a beautiful country cottage that has been lovingly remodeled and brought up-to-date. It's about 4.5km off the Ring of Kerry in a hard-to-describe-how-beautiful location. Great views of the lake, mountains, and sunsets. Lots of places to hike or walk. It's extremely private and peaceful, and any issues we had were promptly addressed. As a plus, it has very good internet access.

The only nit-pick is that it does not have a microwave, which would be very nice to have when vacationing.

We rented through shamrockcottages, and they set up everything very nicely.
