Guestbook comments from the manager

Your cottage was "just like home". All of us felt that the layout and spacious rooms made our stay relaxing and comfy. The furnishings and appliances were just right for a one-week stay for four peoples _ and of course, the view was great. Besides exploring Kenmare we toured all three peninsulas (Beara, Kerry, and Dingle) - our favorite was Beara. We would readily recommend your place to anyone who might be interested in staying in Southwest Ireland. If there is a place to put renter comments on your website, please let us know, We had a great time in Ireland.

Loved Privacy & View/GreatSupport & Ambiance

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 stayed here the last week of July 2011. We found it to be perfect for us. The property isnt more than 1 mile from town. But, it is up high enough for a lovely view, distanced enough from the neighbors to not feel uncomfortable with our boisterous children outdoors.

Both bedrooms have a small balcony. The kitchen contains plenty of supplies for cooking. One bathroom has a shower & one a tub. The house was spacious, & included a working living room fireplace. The lady to call if you have questions was very attentive and helpful. Enjoyed the experience very much. Would recommend to others!

Wonderful house in a terrific location

  • 5 of 5

We spent a bit over 2 weeks at Tuatha Murtagh in late January 2010 - not your typical tourist season! Since this was our 5th visit to Ireland and we had been to the area before, we did not take in the typical tourist sights. The house was clean and very well maintained. The caretaker lives just down the road and we got to know her and some other the other neighbors while we were there - not because we needed to but just because they were so friendly.

The scenery in the area (Ring of Kerry and the Beara Peninsula plus Killarney National Park) are well known and should be on everyone's itinerary. However, we also got to explore some of the out-of-the-way sites nearby the house. We loved hiking in Gleninchaquin Park, Dromore Woods, hike to Lake Dromaghty right from the house, and Dromanassig Falls. If you like to hike, make sure you check out the walking guide available at the house (along with literally dozens of other wonderful brochures about various local sites and activities).

We would highly recommend this cottage (it really is more of a regular house - very large kitchen and wonderful living room with a beautiful fireplace). Having wireless Internet and TV with DVDs and videos make it even more inviting after a long day of hiking or touring. There is a relatively new Super Valu just past the church in town but the town also boasts a number of very good restaurants.

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I couldn't have asked for a better place! I felt at home in this darling little cottage. Being just a few minutes away from the lovely town of Kenmare, shopping and dining were close at hand. It was also about 20 minutes from the Ring of Kerry, offering plenty of breathtaking scenery and coastlines. The home's furnishings were great- everything was clean and comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you would need for cooking, and there were plenty of extra linens. Waking up to the incredible view of the bay was wonderful- it never grew old! I would HIGHLY recommend this home away from home to anyone looking for a quiet getaway. I cannot wait to stay at Tuatha Murtagh again soon!
