Best place ever!

  • 5 of 5

My siblings and their now adult children have been getting together in the US each summer for many years. This year we decided to go International, and could not have been happier. The house had plenty of room for all 17 of us, and the views of the ocean from inside the house are just incredible! Queen, modern, and very comfortable beds. Town of Ballyheigue is very quaint and authentic Irish, with a surprising amount of activity going on, at least during their summer festival week, which is when we were there. As a homebase for seeing the southwest of Ireland, this is also a great place for a large group. Thank you Shirley for sharing your amazing the house with us! The Cunniff family

The Magic Kingdom in Kerry

  • 5 of 5

What a house and location, far surpassed everything we had hoped and dreamed that it would be, "Heaven on the Waterside" doesn't do it justice; many many thanks to you Shirley, and your team from all of us, both adults and kids. The adults felt like kids and everybody is still talking about the place, the real "Magic Kingdom", depressed we had to leave but we'll be better prepared next time, just keep the coffee brewing.

Best House ever!!! Great for 12 guys on a golf trip.

  • 5 of 5

The house is absolutely amazing!! Directly on the Ocean with the best views. The house has tons of privacy in the back yard you only have a neighbor on one side. Everything in the house was top notch. TV with a ton of channels we were even able to watch a couple NFL games. Plenty of room. All 12 guys had their own bed. The hottub with ocean views was great. Plenty of space for everyone to lounge around. The house is centrally located to play all the great Southwest Ireland courses. We played Doonbeg, Lahinch, Tralee, Old Head, Ballybunion, and Waterville. Best part we got to play all these courses and never had to pack up once. Shirley and here daughters were The most accommodating host I have ever seen. They even grocery shopped for us. The pubs and the stores in ballyheigue are about a 5 minute walk so is the castle golf course. Which was a fun 9 hole course. If you have a big group of people you will not find a better location in southwest ireland our whole group loved the location and lodging.

Sincerely,

Mark from Minnesota

World Class 2

  • 5 of 5

After spending years thinking & talking it over, our extended Family of 17 finally got it together and made the decision to spend a 3 week Summer vacation in Ireland (2013), it was something else, we thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it, unfortunately, only a week of that time (the last week) was spent at this incredible house, in what is, a world class location.

Staying here was without a doubt the highlight of our vacation (a 3 weeks that had many many highlights), and for many of us probably the best week of our lives.... as a Family together... definitely the best, the only downside was that we had not had the foresight to book the house for the entire vacation, we didn't know, nor could we have guessed from the website that this beautiful house and its magnificent location was in fact far superior than its description and photos, we'll know better next time.

P.S.

Shirley, I know from our many (fun) discussions with you that you don't need us to tell you this, but once again, you do need to work on this aspect of your business and put your modesty aside, any "hype" in photos and description of your home and its location just can't be enough, I do accept full responsibility for doubting same, and thereby limiting our time there, but thank you from each and everyone one of us for all of your warm and helpful hospitality during our stay,it truly is , and was for us a world case experience.`

Mind blown

  • 5 of 5

This place is fab, I don't do reviews but feel strongly that this should be said, this was the most amazing vacation destination, we could not have picked a better place for our Family gathering, delicious. Whenever I read reviews saying 'how fantastic' a place is I assume its exaggerated but this place can't be hyped enough. I will be telling everyone that will listen...(or perhaps I should be keeping it quiet) just how unbelievable this house, its setting and the whole area is. I could go on and on, a huge HUGE thanks to Shirley for all she did for us- really mind blown by the whole trip, the house, and the hospitality!

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Having visited our Ancestral homeland countless times over a 50 year period since Childhood with my Parents, my own Children, now their Children and my Grandchildren along with our extended Family, and over these years having had beautiful experiences with many golden memories, it is accurate and fair to say that in describing this house its setting, location and our recent, too short vacation there, that it has been the highlight in all our years of visiting Ireland, I am truly (and unusually) lost for words, the saying is that "The lily cannot be gilded" , and right now, after much deliberation the best I can do in describing this house and our stay at it, is,` ...Wonderful...

We are thankful to have found this priceless treasure and for this unforgettable experience, I only wish that I had found its like earlier, my "kids" and Grandchildren have not stopped talking about it, and I think I know now exactly where and for how long their next visit "home" will be.

Heartfelt thanks Shirley
