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.
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.
Simplicity and beauty. Wonderful changing light. All you need is here!

We spent many hours online searching for just the right cottage for our Irish adventure, and Bell's Cottage ticked all our boxes. It is a charming, traditional cottage in a convenient location on a quiet road, with all the amenities we wanted. From Bell's Cottage, we could reach Killorglin in 10 minutes and Killarney in 30 minutes. We were also within easy reach of the gorgeous Dingle Peninsula and, of course, right on the doorstep of the famed Ring of Kerry. The cottage itself was perfect for our party of 4 adults, with two comfortable bedrooms and two full baths. The kitchen was well equipped, including a washing machine for laundry (which we desperately needed by the time we got there!). The owners of the cottage were very welcoming and helpful during our stay. We have no reservations about recommending this property to other travellers, and would return ourselves in a heartbeat!
Wir haben schon in vielen guten Ferienhäusern gewohnt - aber dieses war mit Abstand das schönste! Einfach wundervoll mit seinen alten, liebevoll restaurierten Möbeln und geschmackvollen Bildern, den tollen Holzböden ... da stimmt einfach jedes Detail!
Dazu gibt es aber auch jede Menge Komfort: sehr gute Betten, eine gemütliche Couch, Internet und die Küche wirklich mit allem ausgestattet, was man braucht ... und nicht zu vergessen die beiden großen Blumenstäuße, die uns beim Empfang erwarteten!
Ein Ort zum Wohlfühlen (der übrigens auch in puncto Sauberkeit tadellos war)... an dem wir uns wunderbar erholt haben - auch dank der langen Spaziergänge an der grandiosen Rossbeigh Beach!
Vielen Dank auch an beide Bachems für den herzlichen Empfang und jede Menge nützlicher Tipps!
This little cottage was a perfect place for my daughter and I to call home for our week in Ireland. It is a PERFECT location close to The Ring of Kerry! We loved our stay and we will be back to stay again. The owners are VERY accomodating, sweet and treated us like family! The cottage was extremely clean and cozy. Just a perfect spot to stay...I can not reccommend it enough!!
