In August 2010, my wife and I plus her sisters and their spouses did a road tour of Southern Ireland for 8 days. I enjoyed myself so much that I convinced my wife (it wasn’t difficult, she being of Irish descent) to return to Ireland this year to stay at one location for 2 weeks to experience the flavors of the Irish life style. I searched through the VRBO website for a reasonably priced home to rent and came across this wonderful vacation home. What made me decide to select his property was the weekly rate, the plethora of good things to do, the accommodations, the home’s location in relationship to the town center and most important of all, were the guest reviews. The reviews were so convincing, we had to see for ourselves. YES, IT WAS EVERYTHING THAT WAS MENTIONED IN THE GUEST REVIEWS! There’s very little we could add to say about the home, the location, the Irish experience and especially John and his staff that hasn’t been said in the reviews. John was very personable, friendly and accommodating to our needs. It was our pleasure meeting him. The home was warm, inviting and had all the conveniences of home. The front and back yards were well maintained with plenty of room for kids to play. Killarney’s town center was full of restaurants that could satisfy any discriminating taste buds, bars, quaint shops and stores. The streets were alive with local people and people from different parts of the world. The executive golf course across the street was convenient for a quick round of golf. In fact, we shot 9 holes, went home for lunch and went back for another 9 holes. There were plenty of golf courses around County Kerry. Be advised some courses offer “Open Day” with discounted rates, so I recommend to call them. Points of interest and parks were also minutes away with the exception of the Ring of Kerry. The Ring of Kerry is a half day's drive along the Irish coastal ring route and a national natural treasure. It’s a big “YES” again that we would return to this great vacation home, the town of Killarney and would recommend it to family, friends and anyone reading about this VRBO home.
