Glorious Stay!

  • 5 of 5
There are so many wonderful things to say about our stay at Eugene's Cottage. We picked this place because it was fairly centrally located within the Ring of Kerry and because we wanted privacy from other holiday goers. The Ring of Kerry is a very popular vacation destination.

The cottage was very accommodating to our small family of four - two adults and two boys (4 and 5). We enjoyed having a fire in the fire place morning and night and we enjoyed little hikes down to the Blackwater river. The kitchen had all the essentials to cook a nice breakfast, or a simple dinner. The rooms were lovely and comfortable. It was easy to find the cottage and the owners are top notch! Very friendly and helpful - they were so kind upon our arrival with fresh scones and Irish butter, yummmmmy! There is a very small grocery store at the top of the hill for essential items if need be. However, there is a big Tesco's (grocery store) in Kilarney.

We enjoyed lots of adventuring to the many places within the Ring of Kerry. To name a few:
Eco Tours and Blasket Island (Dingle Bay).
Skellig Micheal and Cliffs of Kerry (Portmagee).
The Coachman's Pub in Kenmare for food and live music (any eatery on Henry's Street in Kenmare is worth a try).
Drumquinna Stables for horseback riding (not far at all from the cottage)
Muckross Park on the way out of Kilarney was an amazing day for all the family. Within the park we went to the Traditional Farm and the boys really enjoyed that.
Ross Castle in Kilarney.
Hiking at Torc Waterfall.
We enjoyed a lovely meal at The Strawberry Field pancake house.

There's lots to do within the area - too much actually. Enjoy your time and in our humble opinion, Eugene's Cottage is the place to stay; especially if you're looking for a quiet and comfortable stay away from the buzz of other vacationers! Five Stars!

Picture perfect

  • 4 of 5
Everything was exactly like promised in the description! Absolutely NOTHING to complain about, not even the weather. The cottage is placed in a location where you find peace and quiet, not even the cows made a sound. Having a car handy is a good idea, so one can explore the country whenever one feels like it.
The owner of the supermarket/pub/filling station are friendly as well, helpful when asked for the way for instant. All the people we ran into where nice, friendly, and interested where we came from. so all in all: yes, I would recommend the cottage to family and friends.

A Perfect Retreat

  • 5 of 5
The cottage has been well restored but retains a traditional feel. It is very well equipped for self catering and the location is excellent.
You have mountains and a river close by and the coast is easily reached. It is fabulous for walking and fishing and easy for touring the scenic highlights. It takes less than an hour to drive from Kerry airport. The Blackwater Tavern is about ½ mile away for fuel, groceries and a friendly bar with live music on some evenings during the week. Kenmare is about 7 miles away and has lots of restaurants and some supermarkets.
The owners are helpful and charming and I have come back here many times. I could not recommend it more highly.

Delightful Tranquil Cottage

  • 5 of 5
Eugene's cottage is simply a delightful place to stay, it is located in idyllic surroundings in beautiful County Kerry (no hustle or bustle to bother you just silence). From the cottage outstanding views of Macgillycuddy Reeks and the Caha Mountains can be seen. We have stayed at this cottage for the last 9 years so you could say we are biased, but we are not, and we'll be staying again this summer.

The cottage itself is just as described in the listing; it's clean, comfortable, and well equipped with a huge open fire and night storage heaters. There is a large sun lounge with magnificent views all round. The owners are the kindest people imaginable and look after all you needs;

Eugene's is about half a mile from the Blackwater Tavern where you can top up your supplies and fuel up your vehicle, and the Guinness is very good! so call by and have a chat with the locals and listen to the music.

If you wish to eat out you have a vast choice of restaurants in nearby Kenmare and Sneem. Restaurants to suit the needs from Back Packer to Food Gourmets with prices similar to those back home. We particulary like "O'Donnabhain" in Henry Street, Kenmare and "Danny O'Shea's Bar in Sneem, and for that special occasion "The Lime Tree" in Shelbourne Street, Kenmare.

I like salmon and trout fishing, fortunately the River Blackwater runs through the cottage grounds just 150 yards away, so I'm soon in my element. The Blackwater is a spate river with fine runs of salmon and sea trout with brownies always in residence. I've caught many nice salmon there. If sea fishing is your forte you are spoiled for choice with pier, boat, and beach fishing all available in the area.

Horse riding and Pony Trekking are available at several establishments within half a mile of the cottage, The Blackwater Stables and the Eclipse Centre, the Eclipse Centre also has a range of various activities suitable for children to adults.

The cottage is ideally situated to tour the Ring of Kerry or the Beara Peninsula with dramatic views of the mountains and sea. The beaches are mainly empty of people and are quite superb, blue sea, golden sand and no litter. Try Inny Strand (beach) Waterville it's a good mile long and you can take your car on.

Eugene's Cottage is a delightful place to stay, it's in an area of outstanding beauty with magnificient views all around it.

I would certainly recommend it to members of my familly and friends.
