A perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

Bells Cottage is a beautiful place! We really enjoyed our stay in this perfect location. Evi and Rolf made us feel home form the first minute. Everything you need is there: a lovely house and garden for a couple of relaying days. We highly recommend this place and will come back again!

Thanks for everything!

The setting was beautiful and so close to everything! Just off the Ring of Kerry!

We would totally stay again. We were well taken care of and ending our days with a cozy fire was just perfect. A great vacation spot or even good for an extended stay!

Perfect holiday retreat in Kerry

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four arrived at Bells Cottage late on Dec 23rd to spend the Christmas holidays exploring the Ring of Kerry. Evi and Rolf welcomed us warmly to their immaculate, well-equipped, cozy cottage which they'd filled with holiday treats, fresh flora, and refreshments that were balm to the soul of weary travelers. They were wonderful hosts throughout our stay and the cottage, near beautiful Lake Caragh and the delightful village of Killorglin, proved an excellent base for expeditions to key attractions (and walks) around the Ring of Kerry. Evi is a font of excellent local information and recommendations, from restaurants and hikes to music lessons. She even remembered my daughter's birthday and baked her a delicious cake. The cottage and hosts couldn't have been better. We look forward to returning!

Wonderful Cottage in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Evi was a wonderful host. She was very personable and communicative. The cottage feels very secluded and the yard is lovely. It is everything you want it to be in the Irish countryside and super close to town for all of your needs. The space inside is very clean and well appointed and she even had fresh flowers from the garden for us. I highly recommend this space for you.

Amazing stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here on a girly weekend to celebrate a 40th birthday and we could not have picked a better cottage.

The cottage was well equipped and Rolf had made a cake and card for the birthday girl!

We enjoyed watching movies in front of the fire and exploring the local town.

Would love to visit again!

My wife and ten year old son stayed in Bells cottage for a week and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It is situated in a beautiful, peaceful location and was convenient to many places of interest. Our hosts were lovely people and we highly recommend the property and location for a perfect Irish countryside holiday.
