We stayed at Nono's Cottage for a week in July. We were impressed from the beginning - what a beautiful house with everything you could possible need for a comfortable, enjoyable stay. Our host Michael was friendly and helpful and had even left a welcome basket for us. We had a wonderful week travelling round Killarney and this was the perfect base. Clean, comfortable and a shop near by with fresh baked bread every morning. Would go back in a flash!
Nono's is a beautiful cottage in the village of Gneeveguilla near Killarney. The fit out is immaculate - modern kitchen will everything you require for a self-catering holiday. Two comfortable sofas in the sitting room area. Upstairs are two spacious bedrooms with king size beds. Each bedroom has its own TV, ensuite and closet. A start of the art washing machine and dryer finish the totally up-to-date amenities. The welcome basket of juice, crisps, bread, jam and two bottles of wine was amazing. The village has a good small supermarket and Killarney with all shopping outlets is only a short drive away. The cottage was a great base for exploring all that County Kerry has to offer. It was one of the nicest places we have ever stayed and at a very reasonable price. We did not need any heating while we there but the heating options were impressive and I am sure it would be toasty in the winter. Michael the owner lives just behind the cottage and was very helpful on things to do in the area. Would recommend this to anyone - just note that you do need a car.
There was nothing not to like about Nono's Cottage as everything was perfect. The accommodation was of the highest standard both in terms of facilities and decor and the location was perfect for a base to explore the area. Micheal the owner is a great host and instantly made us feel at home. He deserves the highest praise for his attention to detail and what he offers at Nono's Cottage. I would recommend this cottage to anyone without hesitation.
I can honestly say without fear of contradiction that this was the best holiday cottage that we ever stayed in. It felt less like a holiday rental and more like you own home only better. Everything from the decor to the facilities was perfect. The cottage itself is a two bedroom (sleeps four) open plan style but it does not feel like it as there is a distinct separation of kitchen from lounge. The kitchen is better then well appointed and is to a very high standard, it has a built in oven-hob, a dishwasher, microwave, toaster, kettle, coffee maker and enough crockery and cutlery for six people let alone four. There are two bedrooms each with en-suite shower room and walk in wardrobes, each bedroom also has it's own t.v. and very comfortable beds. The lounge has two sofas a large screen t.v. and a duel fuel stove ( although when we stayed it was not cold enough to justify using it, pity) and also a very neat wall mounted stereo system. The patio garden is small but is a very comfortable place to spend an evening with a glass of wine, should you get the weather, and has some interesting bits and bobs. There is even a small utility room with a washing machine and a tumble dryer and even has an extra toilet, that makes three toilets in all, brilliant. I really cannot fault this place and the owner, Mr Daly,is a very friendly, warm and generous person. He has thought of everything and even his guest book has a nice story to relate about the history of the cottage and it's surroundings. Talking of the surroundings the cottage is located in a very small town called Gneevguilla which has a post office a small supermarket and two pubs, as I said small, however it is located just 12 kms from Killarney and about 40 kms from Cork city so is an ideal base for exploring Kerry and west Cork. Therefore a car is essential, however there are some nice walks in the area and the locality is well worth exploring on foot. The title of my piece is Best cottage ever and if your ever lucky enough to stay here you will know why.
