Super wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt!

  • 5 of 5

Unser Urlaub war sehr erholsam. Das Haus war nett und wohnlich ausgestattet. Es hat an nichts gefehlt. Die Vermieter waren immer hilfsbereit und super freundlich. Wir wurden sehr herzlich aufgenommen und bekamen tolle Infos und Tipps. Die Umgebung ist sehr natürlich und ruhig. Kein Auto weit und breit zu hören.

Wir können dieses Ferienhaus auf jeden Fall weiter empfehlen.

Heerlijke week in Rusheens!

  • 4 of 5

Wij hebben een week doorgebracht bij Rusheens. De eigenaren gingen deze week zelf ook met vakantie maar de oppas was er voor evt. vragen maar je privacy is met je eigen oprit en ingang sowieso prima...

Het weer was on Iers goed... Veel zon en weinig regen! Het huis ligt zeer afgelegen, de weg er naar toe is even wennen want tegenliggers wil je daar liever niet tegen komen.... Het huis zelf is van alle gemakken voorzien: 2 badkamers en drie slaapkamers en een volledig ingerichte keuken. Het uitzicht is mooi, de omgeving ruig.

Kenmare is een levendig stadje waar je prima uit eten kunt gaan tegen een schappelijke prijs. Inkopen bij Lidl of Super Value is daar mogelijk.

Veel gezien en lekker relaxed huis!

Urlaub mit Freunden

  • 5 of 5

Sehr schönes Haus mit ruhiger Lage und traumhaften Aussichten. Das Haus ist etwas abgelegen, aber das stört nicht sondern trägt zu der Ruhe und Entspannung positiv bei. Die Vermieter sind super nett und freundlich. Da wir am ersten Tag erst relativ spät ankamen haben sie uns sogar Brot, Wurst, Käse und Butter hingestellt. Auch an der Innenausstattung mangelt es dem Haus an nichts. Dementsprechend kann ich jedem der Irland in Reinform erleben möchte dieses Haus empfehlen.

Wonderful cottage!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely cottage. It is very private and well maintained. The owners who live next door give you all the privacy that you want. We loved staying here enjoying the peace and quiet. The sauna was a wonderful bonus. The internet can be a little slow at times so if you are an internet junky, it might not be the place for you. But if you really want or need to get away from it all, this is the PERFECT place.

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We received two gifts during our stay. The first was a beautiful cottage that was delightful in every way. From the cozy fireplace in a lovely living room to the very comfortable beds in spacious, not a sound heard during the night, bedrooms from the great views and beautiful country location to the fully equipped kitchen. Add radiant heating in the floor and a lovely sauna and you will not want to leave. However, if you decide to explore, Kenmare is a ten minute drive and all of the joys of West Cork and Kerry are possible in a day trip from the cottage. Rusheens is in a most perfect location.

The second gift we received was the hospitality of the owners. Dhara teaches yoga (we took one of her very relaxing classes) and Marcus is a ceramic artist. We were greeted warmly and both felt like long lost relatives (the good kind.) They had the fridge stocked for what they called a start but it seemed like everything needed for a good first night and next morning was included and some of the "start" lasted the whole stay. Friendly hosts is an understatement.

You could not pick a better cottage or better hosts. We'll be back.
