Guestbook comments from the owner

We are a family of five (children aged 12, 8 and 6 ) and we stayed at this lovely home. Even though there was a lot of rain last summer, it was a perfect vacation. The neighbours were very friendly. The view was fantastic, the home was really nice, with excellent showers and very quite surroundings.



This home has everything for a perfect getaway to relax and enjoy family time. It was difficult to leave the gorgeous surroundings when the 14 days were up! There was plenty to do for the children. They loved walking, crabbing, fishing and watching the cows go past. Days in were just as good as days out.



The home was easy to find and so lovely. Will definitely be looking to stay here again.



Thank you for a wonderful time!

We LOVED it!!!!

  • 5 of 5
Wish there were more stars... !!! We had a perfect week at Maureen's Place on the Beara Peninsula! The location is just amazing, sitting atop a hill overlooking the Bay where mussel beds lay in the water below, while mountains all around change character with the time of day and weather. Drives around the Ring of Beara far surpass the views and sights (and traffic) of the Ring of Kerry... Healy Pass is breathtaking! The house is so beautiful and absolutely immaculate! (Thanks to Hannah, the local caretaker, who takes such pride in making it welcoming and spotless.). The joy of coffee in the morning sitting at the patio table and listening to utter peace and quiet, looking out at the water and mountains.... Ahhhh, such bliss! The house is extremely well stocked, and The kitchen was wonderful... Sufficient cooking utensils, bakeware, pans, etc.... It is stocked for those who love to cook, and makes it so fun to "play house" for a week. We have been to Ireland 14 times in 14 years, and we would list this accommodation among the top we have ever had. Maureen was very friendly and helpful throughout the process. Loved dinner at Mullins Village Inn in Ardgroom since Mullins is my family name. One more hint.... Be sure you have lots of memory on your camera chip... You will need it to capture the house, view and wonderful area!

A perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5
Although already a month ago we still reminisce about the great week we had in this huge house with an amazing view of the inland sea.
The house was just perfect, furniture was comfortable, the kitchen is very big and very well equipped, probably depends on what you’re used to but for us it was a beautiful kitchen. Basically the pictures almost do justice to how nice and comfortable the house itself is..

The house is about 3 miles from the local village of Ardgroom which has, as far as we could detect, a small supermarket/coffee-/tee-shop/restaurant, and a local pub.

Personally I felt that the only thing that could be considered missing was a Wifi-Internet link. But then again, that had its own advantage. Not being able to check my work-mail kept things pretty relaxed.

The view from the front of the house is beautiful. The house is about a 100 meters away from the water. You can’t really get to the water there due to the growth and quite a steep drop as the house is about 30 meters or so up the hill. But less then 5 minutes walking down the road and you find you can actually do a little beach walk (not a sandy beach of course).

Then the people, everyone was extremely friendly, watch out on the roads though, they can be quite narrow and are very windy. But then again, the rugged landscape definitely makes up for that. It is just amazing to drive around or take a couple of hours to walk a little way of the beara way, a challenging but beautiful walk.

It’s only about 20-25 minutes driving to CastleTown-berre (or bearhaven) which has a nr of nice restaurants and large supermarket.
And then, a little further away (about 40-45 minutes) there is Kenmare, where we went two evenings to enjoy the traditional Irish folk music during dinner.
For us this was a great holiday (yes we were extremely lucky with the wheather, we only had rain on one afternoon and that was on the day before we left for home). So this is one house that I would recommend, it does not compromise, it has all facilities you want. It is isolated but not too isolated. Perfect getaway

Get Away Haven

  • 5 of 5
Following a very easy drive from the Cork ferry, and after a brief stop for brunch in café Jam in Kenmare, we arrived at Maureen's Place in Ardgroom inward.

The house is in a fabulous location, situated on a slight rise overlooking part of the peninsular. We immediately put the kettle on and sat outside to enjoy the fabulous view and the absolute calm. Wow, completely beautiful! Muscle lines are laid in the bay lacing the waterway, which provide perfect fishing spots for cormorants and gulls.

The house is in a perfect location from which to explore the Ring of Beara and is a real get-away haven. We enjoyed a combination of walking and driving days, absorbing the fabulous scenery. The drives to Ahilles with its small beach, Kil Catherine's point and the Healy Pass were all highlights as was a white knuckle RIB boat ride from Eyeries. The coast road around the Ring of Beara really is stunning and very dramatic.

Everyone we met, on walks, at the beach, in fishing harbours, pubs and village shops were all incredibly friendly and readily shared information about places to visit.

The house itself is a new build, very bright and spacious with lots of natural wood. The big windows all maximise on the great view and make the house feel very open. The two upstairs bedrooms are very large and if Maureen wanted to, she could add extra beds, accommodating more guests. We put the patio table outside to great use, breakfasting there and enjoying morning coffee and evening aperitifs, taking full advantage of the magnificent view. Overall a really comfortable, lovely house.

We bought lots of games with us for the evenings and particularly enjoyed playing boules on the gravel which runs around the property. The small road in front of the property is very quiet with very few cars passing. You're more likely to see cyclists, walkers and tractors.

I would highly recommend Maureen's Place, as would the rest of the family, which includes an 18 and 11 year old.
