A wonderfully welcoming home with all we needed and more. Enjoyed our daily dander down the beautiful 'loanen' (Northern Irish for 'wee road' : ) ) to the fantastic beach. Beach cafe superb-very friendly folks especially Barbara. Our teenagers had a great time kayaking in the bay. Interesting places to visit with breathtaking scenery around every corner! Thanks you Mary & Helen for everything! Homesick already for Kerry & especially Ballinskelligs!
We loved staying in Cois Farraige fabulous home from home, spacious, clean and welcoming. The area and beach are stunning and within walking distance. Walks galore and everyone was so friendly. Ireland and Ballinskelligs is definately a place we shall return to. Thanks for letting us your beautiful holiday home we are so grateful we have experienced such a beautiful place.
Really well equipped house close the beach and pub in astoundingly beautiful area.Have no hesitation in recommending to a large family or group of friends.WiFi would be a good addition
We were 5 adults and 2 dogs so the property was amply big enough. The owner Helen could not have been more helpful. The house was clean with good facilities and looked after by a helpful housekeeper. It is a short gentle downhill walk to the beach, with the pub a little further on. The beech is beautiful and amenities in the village are good - pub, cafe, fish and chip takeaway, local small shop, post office and arts and crafts galleries. More restaurants are available a short drive away in Waterville and Cahersiveen, where good supermarkets can be found. It is a good touring base for the Ring of Kerry and Dingle is an easy day trip. Horse riding on the beach at Caherdaniel was excellent. You will always get mixed weather in Kerry, but the scenery more than makes up for it.
Very cosy house. Clean and well equipped with lovely big garden surrounded by stunning landscape. Short walk to the beautiful beach through the flower bedecked hedgerow an absolute joy. Lots of great things to see and do nearby - kayaking on the beach, visit to the chocolate factory, friendly beach cafe, walks through stunning country on the doorstep, lots of historical interest too. People all very friendly and welcoming.
Cois Farraige is a beautiful holiday home in perfect location within a couple of minutes walk of a fantastic beach. It is perfect for a family break & was fully equipped for own 1 year old son - high chair, cot, stair gate, etc. It is also quite close to the local chocolate factory which is definitely worth a visit for young & old alike. We would highly recommend this holiday home and can't wait for our next visit :-)
We loved to stay in this absolute lovely cottage. Everything was so great and comfortable. We've never seen such an amazing and breathtaking starry sky. The view to the sea was also great.
Helen and Mary were so friendly and kind. Hope we will stay there next year too. It was the best Irish holiday we had so far. Thanks a lot, Helen and Mary!
