Fantastic property is great location

The property is pretty new and in great condition. There was plenty of space and Mary (owner) was wonderful. She answered all our questions quickly and accurately during the selection and was very helpful in narrowing down the shortlist of properties.

On arrival, even though it was late, she met us at the property and made sure we had everything we needed, even checking back with us the next day.

The venue was perfect for our needs. Waterville is very peaceful and the cottage is well situated. There are beautiful drives in all directions and a lot to do and see. The windy mountain roads are gorgeous, but not for the faint of heart! From the cottage, you can walk into town for a bite from a selection of restaurants, pop over to the local inn to watch a game of rugby, or stroll down to the beach. For fishermen, the local sea trout run is superb and many pubs sport trophy fish mounted and displayed. There are several grocery stores in close proximity, one in walking distance and several others a 15 minute drive away.

I would highly recommend this property to anyone wanting the true Irish village experience.
Owner's Response: Hi,

Delighted you all enjoyed your stay. I agree Waterville is a unique little Village that has so much to offer.

Many Thanks

Mary

The Perfect Base to Explore Southwestern Ireland

Mary's Waterville home was absolute perfection - a perfect mix of modern amenities and Irish charm.

The location - walking distance to town and the waterfront - was lovely and its location in the middle of the Ring of Kerry made every drive magnificent. The home itself was cozy and totally comfortable. We were a family of four and had space to spread out, or come together. We did quite a bit of cooking in the very well equipped kitchen, grilled local lamb on the outdoor grill and enjoyed the washer and dryer to keep us looking tip top. The beds were fantastic and the under floor heating was welcome on cold mornings. Everything was included - from dishwasher soap to laundry detergent. The Wifi was super fast and the fireplace included both logs and peat. We have rented a number of properties in Europe and this was definitely the best appointed home. We plan to return to Ireland in a couple years and will definitely take this house again.

Icing on the cake is Mary O'Shea - her knowledge of the area from grocery stores to sightseeing ideas and restaurants (don't miss eating at The Point) was so helpful in making us feel like we were really experiencing Ireland, not just looking at it from a car window. And her scones were certainly the icing on the cake!
Owner's Response: Thank you Kim, it is always a pleasure to have somebody stay who enjoys a good Irish holiday and home baking. I am delighted you enjoyed the Vacation home so much and I look forward to seeing you all again.

Best Wishes

Mary

Exceeded Expectations

It was our 50th Wedding Anniversary and we wanted to celebrate it with family in Ireland. There were 7 of us which included 2 grandchildren, 2 1/2 and 5 1/2.

We wanted a location that "had it all" and Waterville and Ring of Kerry provided the "all" that we were looking for from golf to beach, sights to folk villages and farms, white-knuckle rides to Mt. Skellig for UNESCO Heritage Site, pubs and restaurants.

The layout made it comfortable for all of us to gather for food and fun family time - yet also to find our own corner for quiet and privacy.

I loved the photo in HomeAway and it did not disappoint. There was a casual elegance and charm with a beautiful simplicity that was very restful thru-out.

Our host, Mary, had seen to every detail and need and if that wasn't enough, she was there to help us with any questions. She provided suggestions from where to eat to finding us a baby-sitter for the children - who just happened to be an Irish dancer and, to the kids delight, taught them some steps.

Functionally it all worked like a charm. The kitchen was very well provided, the utility room had washer and dryer essential with small children. The high-speed internet access was a necessity for our sons to stay in touch with work.

The fireplace, outdoor area for throwing a baseball, games, outdoor patio area, warm floors, skylights, family sized dining area. What more could one ask for. And on top of all that she had a wonderful library of books by Irish authors, painters, poets plus a folder of 101 (at least) things to do and sights to see.

Thank you Mary from all of us for a wondrous 10 days enjoying delightful Ireland in the Ring of Kerry and your gracious hospitality. It will be an unforgettable memory.
