Great cottage, lovely owners

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is very charming, with everything you could need during your stay. The owners were lovely people and so accommodating! There are plenty of things to do in Co. Kerry; we could have stayed much longer than 3 days. We would definitely return.

Lovely place!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were traveling through Ireland for our honeymoon. We stayed 3 nights at Bell's Cottage. It's in a perfect location! Close to Killarney, Killarney National Park, and much more. Our hosts were very welcoming - they left us a chocolate treat and wine for our honeymoon. Very nice touch! The house is 2 story with a wood burning fireplace. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay again if we go back. Of all the places we stayed during our trip, this was the best.

Schmuckkästchen

  • 5 of 5

Im Juni 2015 verbrachten wir 3 Wochen im Bells Cottage.

Wir mieten seit vielen Jahren, für unsere Urlaube, Ferienhäuser in verschiedenen europäischen Ländern. Das gemütliche, gepflege, helle und mit viel Liebe eingerichtete Bells Cottage ist für uns die Nummer "1".

Auf dem parkähnlichen Grundstück konnten wir mit der Sonne wandern und immer ein windgeschütztes Plätzchen finden.

Wir danken den Bachems für die freundlichen Gespräche und die vielen Anregungen.

Beautiful cottage

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the cottage with two adults and two children. It is very clean, cozy and conveniently located towards lots of attractions. Very nice owners. It was our son's 12th birthday during our stay and Evi baked him a cake! I would certainly recommend it to other travelers.
