World Class 2

  • 5 of 5

After spending years thinking & talking it over, our extended Family of 17 finally got it together and made the decision to spend a 3 week Summer vacation in Ireland (2013), it was something else, we thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it, unfortunately, only a week of that time (the last week) was spent at this incredible house, in what is, a world class location.

Staying here was without a doubt the highlight of our vacation (a 3 weeks that had many many highlights), and for many of us probably the best week of our lives.... as a Family together... definitely the best, the only downside was that we had not had the foresight to book the house for the entire vacation, we didn't know, nor could we have guessed from the website that this beautiful house and its magnificent location was in fact far superior than its description and photos, we'll know better next time.

Shirley, I know from our many (fun) discussions with you that you don't need us to tell you this, but once again, you do need to work on this aspect of your business and put your modesty aside, any "hype" in photos and description of your home and its location just can't be enough, I do accept full responsibility for doubting same, and thereby limiting our time there, but thank you from each and everyone one of us for all of your warm and helpful hospitality during our stay,it truly is , and was for us a world case experience.`

Mind blown

  • 5 of 5

This place is fab, I don't do reviews but feel strongly that this should be said, this was the most amazing vacation destination, we could not have picked a better place for our Family gathering, delicious. Whenever I read reviews saying 'how fantastic' a place is I assume its exaggerated but this place can't be hyped enough. I will be telling everyone that will listen...(or perhaps I should be keeping it quiet) just how unbelievable this house, its setting and the whole area is. I could go on and on, a huge HUGE thanks to Shirley for all she did for us- really mind blown by the whole trip, the house, and the hospitality!

Having visited our Ancestral homeland countless times over a 50 year period since Childhood with my Parents, my own Children, now their Children and my Grandchildren along with our extended Family, and over these years having had beautiful experiences with many golden memories, it is accurate and fair to say that in describing this house its setting, location and our recent, too short vacation there, that it has been the highlight in all our years of visiting Ireland, I am truly (and unusually) lost for words, the saying is that "The lily cannot be gilded" , and right now, after much deliberation the best I can do in describing this house and our stay at it, is,` ...Wonderful...

We are thankful to have found this priceless treasure and for this unforgettable experience, I only wish that I had found its like earlier, my "kids" and Grandchildren have not stopped talking about it, and I think I know now exactly where and for how long their next visit "home" will be.

Heartfelt thanks Shirley

Simply the Best !!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Ireland !!!... As only imagined thru our Grandparents stories since childhood, in all its magic, mystic magnificence, spell-binding, awe insiring, and jaw droppingly beautiful in all its splendidness.... thats just the drive from the airport.

Yeah... you might have guessed we loved it... As for the location and setting of this house, despite friends recommendations, other referals and the website description, we were not prepared to be as mentally stunned.... entranced...., or as they say just north of the border....enchanté.

We won't forget the mental image of this place, and consider ourselves fortunate to have experienced it, if we don't have the privilege of returning, it will be called to mind often.

The house itself is the ultimate in tastefully furnished, spacious luxury, with every conceivable amenity and comfort, and the owners and staff were a delight, always just a phone call away and always ready to assist or give advice on any request or query, great job guys!

We simply could not have wished, nor asked for, any more.

If 5 stars is the maximum rating,this place gets it, we could not recommend this place more highly.

A truly memorable holiday

  • 5 of 5

Dear Chris & Shirley

We, the Curtin Family & Friends would like to thank you both for your hospitality and for all of your help in making our stay at your home so memorable, enjoyable and such a success. Many Thanks also from all of us, to Sean and Beth for their wonderful cooking and beautiful meals along with their great sense of fun, we do appreciate Beth's recipe's, but unfortunately, despite spirited efforts, have yet to adequately recreate her mouth watering lobster bisque, as we have already informed both Her and Sean, please let us know should they ever decide to come Stateside and we will have the ingredients pre-ordered, ready and waiting (should fresh Maine Lobster be sufficient).

Needless to say it could not have happened had we not been in such beautiful surroundings in both home and location, we cannot compliment you highly enough on the quality of your home, and as for its location, suffice to say that as you admit yourselves, you have been Blessed, there really is no place in the World quite like it, and really, no website or description could possibly do it justice.

There is no question that we will come back to this little piece of Paradise, and have as a Family committed ourselves to having future re-unions together in Ireland, at least bi-yearly.

We cannot compliment or recommend this house, its location, owners, staff and the services it provides more highly. Maximum stars plus some. Thank you all.

Geraldine, Kathleen, Maria, Thomas, Brian, Patrick, & Garrett Curtin and from all of our Families & Friends.

Massachusetts, Maine, New York and Ireland.

An awesome spectacular stay

  • 5 of 5

When reserving this house, we did not REALLY expect everything to be as described, and it would have been awesome if the house and its location turned out to be only half as good as the website blurb implied. We were stoked to find that this house far surpasses its description and the photographs do not, and could not do the place full justice. Whereas the house and its amenities are sumptuous, delightful and quite the essence of luxury. The location is such that we would have been more than happy & excited to "camp out" in its grounds in our swags if we had them!!

Our group itinerary was to travel and sight-see, but on arrival it immediately became obvious to all 14 of us that leaving this house and the sheer beauty that surrounds it, would be a shame. The setting is awe-inspiring, and will take a wordsmith of higher calibre than me to describe.

Heed the warning on the website, you may not want to leave.

This house ticks all the boxes and much much more spectacular than we could have ever dreamed of. The owner, Shirley, could not have been more hospitable in every way and she spent time with us on arrival to show us around and give us some tips on the awesome attractions in the area. We were made very much at home here by the owner, and the views from the house were even more beautiful than our own Perth coastlines. Didn't think that was possible. All things combined, our stay at this house was marvelous. I would not hesitate to return and will be happy to recommend this house to everyone I know, as will every member of our group.

Fair dinkum Kerry!! . Top marks from your new Perth fans. A 5 star rating is not enough, a 10 star rating was our general consensus. Cheers mates
