Wonderful Memories Made at the Hollies

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 16, 2013

Our Australian family gathering in Ireland, including our week at the Hollies, was wonderful. The accommodation was very comfortable for our group og 8 adults. There was loads of space to spread out within the house from the great kitchen table through to the two cosy lounge areas. Located on the Ring of Kerry meant that we had access to many of the beautiful drives and walks around the area. The view from the house was quintessential Ireland and we fell in love with the way the scenery changed with the different light. My family would recommend the Hollies to anyone wishing to experience Kerry and all it has to offer. Anne Hogan

Amazing property - wonderful owners

The Hollies was a wonderful property and the owners are great people to work with. We needed a home to accommodate 7 people at the last minute and they were gracious and easy to work with on short notice. The home itself is lovely. They even had fresh wild flowers in the kitchen when we arrived. The kitchen is very well equipped - gourmet. The views from the eating area were amazing - loved morning with a cup of tea just looking out the window. There were 6 adults and plenty of bathrooms and space to spread out when needed. The home is spotless and the beds are very comfortable with good quality linens. Bathrooms and water pressure were good. There is a washer/dryer and WiFi. What more could you want. The island is on the Ring of Kerry but traffic was not a problem. We were located near Sneem and Kenmare. The owner has proved more tourist information than you could ever make use of. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this wonderful property and only wish we could return in the near future. I wish I could attach pictures......

A more than memorable break in glorious Kerry.

To say that this delightful holiday home ticks all the boxes is an understatement! It is situated, not far from the village of Sneem, in the most stunning location with outstanding views of the Kenmare river with it's glorious backdrop of mountains and magnificent scenery.
The house itself is really well laid out with ensuite facilities in every bedroom. While the outside of the house is modest it belies the pristine and tastefully decorated modern interior. It is bright, clean and very well equipped with all the usual modern conveniences. The kitchen is well finished and practical with a large kitchen table and there is a comfortable family room with TV and music system. Everything is very well maintained. However, the owners have created another sitting room upstairs which, being elevated, affords the most stunning panoramic views of the bay and surrounding countryside - perfect for a quiet read or just to sit and absorb the extraordinarily beautiful vista.
The house is easily accessable and is only a few minutes by car to the village of Sneem. There are lots of pubs and restaurants in the area and of course, plenty to see and do. Kerry is one of the most beautiful locations in the world in my opinion for walking, sight seeing or just getting away from it all.
For me the cream on the cake was my bedroom - every morning I awoke and when I opened my eyes they were directly opposite a window which was at the perfect height for me to enjoy the ever changing Kerry weather from my bed.
You could travel a long way to find such a hidden gem. I couldn't recommend this property highly enough - there is no better base from which you can explore the delights of Kerry. It get's a 5 star rating from me - the perfect retreat!
JK. May 2012.
Owner's Response: Thank you very much indeed for these kind words. We are both really glad that you enjoyed yourselves.

Thanks again.

My stay in The Kingdom of Kerry

  • 5 of 5

Kerry is not known affectionately as "The Kingdom" without good reason. My recent trip to Sneem took me right into the heart of this magical Place. As one drives south from Dublin and into The mountain pass necessary to enter Kerry one feels that we are entering a time warped magical place. First through Kenmare and then on to to Sneem driving down the side of the very large Kenmare River. This entire area was granted to The English scientist Sir William Petty as part Payment for The mapping of Ireland.
We arrived at our bungalow which sits on the side of a small estuary off The main river. Magnificent views across The Mountains and down The river to the see.
The house itself beautifully appointed with a large en suite and Lounge upstairs again with magnificent views. Downstairs a further 3 bedrooms and a fantastic Kitchen. if one is lucky to enjoy a day stolen from Nature then there is the beautiful outside area to enjoy the full view of The kingdom
In Kerry one has all The seasons in one day and even all at once. One can pan 360 degrees and see rainbows and sun all at once.
Kerry is very much make up your mind on what to do once one has seen the day. it could be a day for The high Stool(The Pub). A day hike on The Kerry way which is nature at its very best. A walk on the many Magnificent Beaches. Visit Sneem or Kenmare on Fair Day where it seems the entire Countryside empties into one of Ireland's Prettiest Towns. Kenmare is full of Great Pubs and Restaurants. From here there are 2 great scenic drives. The ring of Kerry which takes you up and down many of The Fjord like characteristics that exist. The other Journey is a journey around The Beara Peninsula.
There is so much to do in Kerry and it seems like all day to do it as time stands totally still in this charming and special haven of south west Ireland. would recommend seeing this part of the world.
Owner's Response: Thank you so very much for this kind review.
The Hollies has an open invite for you anytime!
We are so glad you enjoyed this beautiful and unique part of Ireland.
We hope to see you soon again.
Thanks for taking the time out to write as well.
Graham & Rosie.

We have just had the most wonderful holiday in a delightful house on Rossmore Island. This must be one of the most spectacular locations in the world, set as it is along the sea on the Kerry coast. The house had everything you could want, luxuriously appointed yet very cosy, where we sat beside the fire in the dramatic living-room upstairs looking out at ever-changing and breath-taking panoramic views. Nearby, the beautiful, picturesque village of Sneem is full of friendly people and well-served with traditional Irish pubs and country-fairs. And a short distance away are the dream-like Lakes of Killarney where we spent an idyllic day. We also enjoyed superb hiking in the area. We had a truly magical holiday and will certainly be back soon.
Paul and Elma Cusack.
