An idyllic location

An idyllic location on the shores of the Shannon estuary, Dolphin Cottage far exceeded our expectations for a holiday rental. Quiet, peaceful, spacious and modern with stunning views from every bedroom, the kitchen and the living room. And yes we saw a dolphin!
Although we could have easily stayed in the house our whole holiday and been very happy, it was a great location for day trips to nearby Ballybunion, Ballylongford, Listowel, the Tarbert Ferry and other scenic west Kerry destinations. Don't miss pony trekking on the beach, (recommended by the owner), the seaweed baths at Ballybunion (seasonal), Jesse James Tavern (village of Asdee), Kennelly's Bar (Ballylongford) and nearby Carrigafoyle Castle. It was wonderful to come home to Dolphin Cottage at the end of a day of sightseeing, relax in front of the gas fire and cook a meal in a thoroughly modern kitchen all while viewing the beauty of the Shannon.
The owner's quick response to emails, phone calls, questions and his warm hospitality made all of us feel very welcome and comfortable.
I would highly recommend this property. It was spotlessly clean, well-maintained and well-designed by the owners. Special touches included a large selection of DVD's for the flat screen TV, a well stocked array of cooking equipment, and comfortable bedding.
We hope to come back to Asdee/Ballybunion and especially Dolphin Cottage very soon!
