Great Ireland Vacation Experience

  • 5 of 5

I have been to Ireland several times and this was by far my best experience. The house is in a great location, putting you within walking distance to the town, the water, and hiking trails. Additionally, you have spectacular views of the bay/rolling mountains from seemingly every window.

As for the house itself, it's nicely sized with plenty of space, good property (meticulously maintained landscaping), modern amenities (washer/dryer, modern kitchen, etc), and very clean.

Owners were great and easy to deal with. Seemed like very nice people.

I would definitely recommend this property to any friend or family member planning to travel to Ireland.

The hiking trails are great, and there are some good golf courses in the area. You'll make fast friends at the pubs, and the locals will even expect you to sing some Irish ballads with them around closing time. All in all, there was no shortage of fun things to do.

If you go to Ireland, this is the place to stay.

Excellent Irish country house in the quaint village of Kilcrohane. Spectacular accomodations with wonderful views. Close to the town and only a short walk to the water. The quintessential Irish vacation experience. Would highly recommend.

An Unforgettable Place

Had an unbelievable time at Dunmahon House. A beautiful home with great space and top of the line everything. Really loved cooking in the kitchen. The weather was perfect and the people were so friendly. The peninsula is breathtaking. A very relaxing and refreshing stay. The Sheeps Head walks, swimming at the pier, bicycle rides, tennis, and golf kept us very busy during hte day and the local pubs gave us a great time at night. The food was delicious too! Especially the fresh seafood. I'll definitely be back!

We have stayed at this beautiful home 3 - 4 times and each time have discovered more magical sights to see. Kilcrohane is a charming village and we have met many wonderful people there. We enjoyed the food at the Bayview as well as their musical nights.

We would recommend this home to a friend only if we are not able to visit ourselves!

Beautiful and relaxing

My wife and I and our 4 boys aged 9 through 13 just returned from a woderful week at Dunmahon where we truly enjoyed our experience. The house is as advertised - large, airy, beautiful views and extremely comfortable. The weather was excellent during the week, although the weather in the rest of the country was not - a frequent occurrence I hear, and the views on those blue sky days were just spectacular.

The tennis court was a great diversion, and the large lawn and extensive shrubbery was also much enjoyed. Proximity to the village was a wonderful plus and we enjoyed sending our boys over the road to Frank's for the paper and other basics. The hiking was great and we climbed to the top of the mountain and also enjoyed a little fishing - the mackerel remain safe from our determined but largely uninformed efforts.

In general we loved it, and while access to the water is plentiful, a beach for swimming in the area would have been a bonus.

Pam the house manager was wonderful and always available to answer questions and provide input.
