Wonderful time in Kerry

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here over Christmas this year, and our stay was absolutely fantastic! Noreen was so accomodating and helpful during our stay. Upon our arrival, she gave us a tour of the house, and explained how everything worked and where to get turf for the fire. The house itself is very well equipped and decorated. Everything seemed brand new, and included satellite TV with loads of channels. The house was also very clean and clearly well-maintained. One of the things I LOVED about this house, was sitting with my coffee in the morning looking out the back window at the waves.
The house itself is a 5 minute to town with grocery store and pubs. It was a really nice location from which to explore the ring of Kerry. Can't wait to come back here again in the future!

Beautiful house - exceeded all expectations

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in the seashell over the New Year and had a fabulous time. The house was much bigger than we expected and was spotlessly clean with absolutely everything you could possibly need. There was a lovely shed in the back with a huge container full of turf for the fire which we lit every night. The view from the dining area was fantastic and there was a spacious garden for our 2 year old to run around in. We really enjoyed the walks down to the beach every day and the wonderful hospitality from our host. Couldn’t give this house a higher recommendation, it is exactly like the pictures above and you really can’t go wrong. Enjoy!

Highly Recommendable Cottage on the Ring of Kerry

  • 5 of 5
Arriving at the house on a late June evening we were immediately fascinated by the far views across the bay and the quiet setting just off a small country lane. Once entering the cottage, we were even more enchanted by its spaciousness as well as the modern, tasteful and high quality furnishing and decoration.

Everything was clean and tidy, still conveying the feeling of newness. A turf fire was already set up in the open fireplace, just waiting to be lit by us and plenty of turf was available for the entire stay. However, we mainly enjoyed the turf fire for its cosiness on the occasional rainy evening because the house was warm enough so that no heating was necessary at any time. The open layout of the house including the gallery with its high window as well as the high ceiling of the dining area, completely surrounded by windows, (both facing South) provide a very bright and open atmosphere to the house.

The location of the house was just perfect for our vacation plans, combining some exploration of the Skelligs Ring as well as the entire Kerry peninsula both by car and by some hiking tours on foot with leisurely days spent on the numerous beaches. Reenroe Beach, which is just a few minutes walking distance from the house, is a safe beach for swimming. Waves are higher e.g. at St. Finian's Bay but care needs to be taken here of strong currents. There are too many other strikingly beautiful beaches along the Ring of Kerry to mention them all. Regarding hiking, best ask at the tourist information in Caherciveen for detailed information on the national and regional looped walks.

We very much appreciated the both non-obtrusive and caring hospitality offered by Noreen. Right from the first email contact providing us with good advice and throughout our stay starting with the warm welcome on our late arrival, we experienced her as very helpful in all concerns.

We have no hesitation in recommending this house to our friends and hope to come back again ourselves.

Peace and Perfection in Kerry!!

  • 5 of 5
I have just returned from spending a week at Seashell Cottage with a friend. It was everything we had hoped for and more. The setting and the views are stunning. It is peaceful, quiet, and the beach is perfect for morning and evening walks. I have rented seveal beach houses in Kerry over the past few years and this one is by far the best! I will be staying here again next time I am in Ireland.

The house is spacious, clean, and well equipped. The house would easily accomodate 6 adults or two couples with small children. There is lovely garden and patio to enjoy when you don't want to be at the beach. I would highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a beach vacation or a peaceful retreat in the west of Ireland. You are right off the Ring of Kerry and very close to Waterville and Cahersiveen. Portmagee is only a few minutes away if you wish to take the boat trip out to Skellig Michael. There is another lovely beach (Ballinskelligs) just a couple of miles away. Make sure and drive the Skellig ring and visit Valentia Island.

Noreen is a wonderful hostess and I want to give her "Thanks" for maintaining such a lovely home and taking good care of us during our visit!
