We spent Christmas in the Old Dressmaker's Cottage. The house was lovely and cosy and equipped with everything we needed. The location was amazing - literally a 2 minute walk from Henry Street in Kenmare. Kathleen was a very friendly and helpful host.

The cottage has everything you need including all those little day to day items that you would have at home but wouldn't be there in some self catering accomodation. The location is ideal.
