Lovely Everything

  • 5 of 5

We had a tremendous week in southwest Ireland. A great home base to explore all sorts of wonderful places. The house was fantastic, nestled in a spot outside Kenmare. The hosts were terrific.

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.
