The house was large, spacious, and definitely easy to heat as others have said. The area surrounding the house was GORGEOUS!
However, I would like to offer a word of advice - Make sure you allow more than enough time to drive the Irish roads and make it to this place before dark. We allowed a lot of time, but not near enough and ended up trying to locate this place in the dark... This is in a Dark Sky reserve, so not only are the roads difficult to manage (small, opposite side of the road for Americans, the usual), but it is VERY dark after the sun goes down (no street lights, reflectors on the road, etc.) and it will be very hard to find the house. Not only that, but you will miss seeing the beautiful area you are staying in! But that was a lovely sight to wake up to!
We also traveling during non-peak season, so many of the local places were closed by 8pm. However, the Gardens right down the street have delicious Thai food! :) We traveled to Cork from here, which was a lovely drive. We also drove the Ring of Kerry, which was just breathtaking.
We loved the sitting room and the fireplace, and were very comfortable in our rooms. The house is minutes from a lovely beach, which gave us an amazing sunset and some of the best photos of our trip. Overall, it was a lovely stay in the Ring of Kerry.
This house is spacious and comfortable and boasts the most amazing views. Whether you go up the hill or down the hill from the house your are surrounded by mountains, sea, flora and fauna...and there are donkeys across the road! The owner is kind and helpful and full of local knowledge. We will be back many times, I hope.
House is much better than what it looks from the photos. Location is just perfect if you rather have spectacular views when you wake up in the morning than being at the heart of some town. Everything you can possibly need for an amazing Ring of Kerry experience is included in this house, including the owner's helpful and lovelyness, maps for treks, TV for a quiet evening and a warm comfortable bed to rest after hours of hiking. House is super warm and cosy. I just got back home but can't wait to go back there.

It is a lovely, spacious house high above Kells Bay. It is beautifully decorated and equipped, including an open fire and, despite the rain, it was really warm an comfortable. Would recommend to anyone!
We stayed for 3 nights in this delightful, modern, huge, comfy house which we instantly christened "The Palace" due to its size and the luxurious feel of it, not to mention the stunning location. There are 2 ensuite double bedrooms and a 3rd double and a single sharing a 3rd bathroom - all the bedrooms have amazingly comfortable beds that no-one wanted to get out of however the stunning showers made it a joy to greet the day - I really wondered what kind of amazing house the owner must have that she is willing to rent this one out to others and wished it was mine as it was much more comfortable and well equipped than our own ! The log fire in the living room was perfect for evening parties and the kitchen has everything you could need - there was another large room which was the breakfast room or a conservatory and had stunning views onto Kells bay close by. Kells bay is a wonderful beach and the house is just off the most stunning part of the ring of Kerry. So quiet too and restful - book this house for a dream holiday !
