A GREAT BASE FOR A HOLIDAY IN KERRY!

  • 5 of 5
Oysterhaven was a wonderful house for our party, which consisted of four golfers. It is very well located and has a wonderful view of Tralee Bay. It's a great location for making day trips out to a whole variety of great courses. The house is extremely well equipped in every regard, and having ensuite bathrooms for each bedroom made getting out the door very easy. Eithne was wonderful to deal with, and the house is exactly as described; no surprises!

Nice to have the Tankard just a short walk away, but of course it's not far to great restaurants and pubs in Tralee and Killarney as well.

We will definitely book there again when our golfing travels bring us back to the area!

AWESOME HOME!!!

  • 5 of 5
We (6 of our family members) just returned from a wonderful trip to Ireland where we spent a week at Oysterhaven. It was the perfect location for exploring the Ring of Kerry, the Ring of Dingle, Killarney, Portmagee, Skellig Michael and the many other beautiful portions of Southwest Ireland.

The house was truly home away from home. It was so spacious that we each had our own areas where we could retreat. We looked forward to coming back each night and enjoyed wonderful mornings eating breakfast overlooking Fenit Harbor. It could not have been more relaxing setting after busy days sightseeing. Our entire group was sad at leaving the house.

I spoke with Eithne several times and she was so helpful and kind. I never felt like I was bothering her. Thank you, Eithne, for allowing us to stay in your home. We would all definitely recommend Oysterhaven. We most certainly would love to return...

P.S. The food at the Tankard is great!

THIS HOUSE WAS ABSOLUTELY DEVINE. PLENTY OF ROOM,

  • 5 of 5
I had friends and relatives in and out over the 5 weeks I spent at Eithne's house and all were totally wowed by this home. It was depicted perfectly on the website, no surprises except she didn't describe the beautiful view of Tralee Bay, but then how can you? Eithne is one of a kind and went out of her way to make me feel welcomed, like when I got lost in Tralee on my arrival and she said "stay there I'm coming"!!! My only disappointment is that it is not available for the weeks I need next year...even at that, she is assisting me in finding an equally nice place. I feel as though I have made a new friend "Home Away"!!! It is to be sure she does the same for all who has the pleasure of meeting her...thank dear friend.

THIS HOUSE TICKS ALL THE BOXES

  • 5 of 5
We have been renting holiday homes in Kerry for many years, however in terms of
amenities within "Oyster Haven" the Location and the magnificent view all the family were in agreement this was simply the best. Nothing was to much trouble for the house owner Eithne ,she even provided a new high chair for our grandson. I have requested 2 weeks next summer, Co Kerry cannot guarantee "no rain"( although we were lucky with good weather) this house will provide all the comfort to look out at it. Marian P

A TRIP I WILL NEVER FORGET.

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I started planning our trip for Ireland back in 2011. We initially started looking for houses on homeaway and stumbled on "Oysterhaven".

First thing i want to point out was that Eithne (homeowner) was probably the sweetest and accommodating person we could ever run into. She answered all of my emails without fail, and communication was simply easy. She met us on our day of arrival and walked us around the house. SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL HOUSE.

The setup for this house is just stunning for any family event. We never felt cramped, and we literally had everything we possible needed. There was only one very SMALL thing, no wifi in the house which was a bummer...but we made due. Everything else was just perfect from the cleanliness, bright rooms, the layout, kitchen... i miss the place already.

Literally 5 minute walk is an amazing pub and restaurant. THE TANKARD (wifi here)... Mary, Adrian and Enda were the best hosts. I am sure they don't get many foreigners coming into there neck of the woods. But they always answered our inquiries with "of course" and "no worries". It made going there every single night something to look forward too. Even one night they kept the pub open til past 4am for us! Food was great... i wish they served breakfast! haha

If you are planning on visiting Ireland. Don't do Dublin! It is like every other city. Oysterhaven serves as the perfect home base to visit the REAL ireland.

-Ring of Kerry
-Dingle (YOU MUST DO THIS)
-Cliffs of Moher
-Killarney

These were just a few of the places we visited while in Ireland at the Oysterhaven. I have made a commitment to come back in 5 years to visit this great country. Hopefully Eithne has some openings ; )

If i could rate this place 6 stars i would, and it would be a big mistake on your part if you did not pick this place.

Thanks a million Eithne, The Tankard, and Ireland for hosting us. See you soon.

Owner's Response: Hi Jarred,

Really delighted you had such a wonderful time.

Great news as Kerry broadband have since been in touch with me to tell me that they can now supply the area with broadband and I have had wifi installed in the house.

For your return trip in 5 years time - you will be able to access the internet through our wifi from all over the house.

Looking forward to seeing you and all the gang again

Regards,

Oyster Haven
