Welcoming modern apartment in charming Cahersiveen, Ireland

  • 5 of 5

We found this place after searching around the West Coast of Ireland for a home base. It was ideal for our family of four with two bedrooms and two bathrooms. We were welcomed by the neighbor who gave us a complete tour and instructions as well as recommendations for restaurants and shopping. We were able to explore the Ring of Skellig, Valentia Isalnd (stunning), and John helped us make reservations with a reputable boat captain to visit the Skelligs. Unfortunately, the weather did not allow us to get out there but we could see them jutting from the sea.

The apartment itself had everything we needed including a washing machine. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen and dining room were neat and modern with all the necessaries for making our own meals. It's a short walk from just about everywhere in town which is charming as can be. John and Margaret (the neighbor) were easy to reach and just plain kind and generous. The area is gorgeous with lots of stunning views. I highly recommend this appartment for families.

All We Could Hope For

  • 5 of 5

We spent 84 nights here and everything about the property was wonderful. Well furnished, well equipped, comfortable furniture and beds. Perfectly situated at the marina in a village halfway around the Ring of Kerry. Ideal location for exploring the Iveragh Peninsula. Margaret, the mother of the landlord, lives next door. A delightful woman, she could not possibly have been more solicitous or caring. Try as we might, we have absolutely nothing to quibble over. Loved our three month Irish home!

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the area and the accommodation proved to be comfortable. Well provided for in the kitchen and lounge area although it was difficult to get the TV working .

Bedrooms were fine if a little small. Pity the shower could not have been repaired before we arrived but we did manage with the one bathroom.

Many thanks to Margaret for looking after us. Overall a most enjoyable stay.

Perfect place!!

  • 5 of 5

My family (husband, 13 year old daughter and 10 year old son) stayed in John's wonderful place for our first trip to Ireland and it was a very special experience! The house was SUPER clean, comfortable, and had everything we needed. The check-in process was very easy and John's absolutely wonderful mother, Margaret, greeted us at the door. She was a real delight! She recommended places to see, places to eat, where to get groceries (the kitchen is fantastic!) and she was so very helpful in every way. Cahersiveen is an adorable town within easy walking distance with many shops, restaurants, pubs, etc. The harbor is right outside your door and the hiking in the area is second to none. The Ring of Kerry is easily accessible as was Valentia Island, and Skellig Michael. We cannot say enough about John's place! It was, in a word, amazing! We hope to get back there again soon!

My husband, myself, my son, his wife and my one year old grand-daughter stayed here for a week and found it to be everything that was advertised. It was clean, modernized, and very comfortable. It was right beside the water and was only 2 blocks from the downtown of Cahirciveen where there was a lot of shops and pubs. We were very close to St. Valentina Island and Skellig Rock. We were also on the ring of Kerry. John's neighbour met us when we a arrived and let us in and showed us where everything was and how everything worked. She was always available if we had questions and went far and above to help us out while giving us our space. We would recommend this home to anyone wanting to explore the southwest part of Ireland.
