Well appointed home in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

The home was a great space for our family and had everything we needed for a very comfortable stay. Our kids (5 and 3) loved exploring the yard, playing with toys in the playroom and seeing the sheep wander through the surrounding hills. The home served as a great central location for exploring the Ring of Kerry and Dingle Peninsula. I would definitely recommend the property for families that need space, don't mind being 10 minutes outside of the city and want to cook for themselves.

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour dans cette belle demeure. Nous étions 8 ( 4 adultes, 4 enfants) . La maison est spacieuse, lumineuse et très fonctionnelle.

Le cadre est magnifique.

C'est une maison que nous conseillerons à nos amis .

fantastische Landschaft - pure Erhohlung

  • 5 of 5

we have liked the cottage very well!

It is simple, but perfect order and tasteful decorated and is really very large for four people, but you can sleep in fife(!) rooms with max. 10 persons + two little childs.

The location is fantastic: quietly with a wonderful scenery and with a view to a beautiful landscape!

We spent very interesting and recreative 9 days in Ireland!

Fine house with a breathtaking view to the lake

  • 5 of 5

You probably like to have a GPS to get there but it is sure worth the trip. The house has all the comfort you wish. We were two families with 5 "big kids" (or rather young adults), and there was room for 2 more persons at least. The parents really enjoyed the ensuite separated bathrooms. The kitchen is very well equipped and the room you will enjoy the most is certainly the dining room with a breathtaking view to the lake downhill and even Dingle Bay sea in the distance. It is definitely a remote place so having a car is a must as you cannot make any shopping in a walkable distance, but you will enjoy the quiet environment. And you know what? we had a lot of SUN there (yes Ireland can also be sunny :-)

Another great stay!

  • 5 of 5

As promised in September 2010 we returned to Jamesey's cottage, and once again we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

From the moment we first contacted Clodagh and Theo to the time we let Catherine know we had left, and where she could find the key, we were treated warmly and with respect.

As was the case previously, the house was perfect. We, and our guests, thoroughly enjoyed our stay and everything about the house was perfect. The house was spotless when we arrived and everything was in good working order. Absolutely no issues (well, almost none) arose and when we did have a question Catherine was readily available to respond.

The house has pretty well everything you would need already on hand and is well equipped to handle a crowd, no matter how big or small it might be.

But most charming are the neighbours. The surrounding fields are full of sheep, rabbits, birds, some impressively large goats and even the occasional cow and they are all a joy to watch.

If you want some peace and quiet this is definitely the house for you. Living in the middle of a city that comprises 3.2 million people we really appreciated how peacefully quiet the house is.

Clodagh and Theo, once again, thanks. Your hospitality, and understanding, were/are truly appreciated.

And lastly, we will once again return to our home away from home. See you soon.


PS……..Theo, I can guarantee that NO sheep entered the inner sanctum.

très belle maison magnifiquement située

  • 5 of 5

Si vous aimez l'Irlande vous tomberez amoureux de cette location. En toute sincérité. La demeure luxueuse toute en sobriété est située à un petit quart d'heure de Killorglin. Ce quart d'heure est un plaisir quotidien car la maison se trouve en pleine nature, montagne et lacs, surplombe le lac Caragh et fait face à la presqu'ile de Dingle et ses montagnes c'est franchement à tomber! Cette situation est vraiment exceptionnelle, un résumé de ce qu'on a envie de voir en Irlande. C'est parfait pour rayonner dans le Sud Ouest, le Kerry évidemment, le parc national de Killarney, Muckross etc..mais aussi Dingle et les péninsules plus au Sud, Beara notamment.

Nous avons passé un séjour idéal, au milieu de la lande, des moutons, des lapins du jardin (!), dans cette maison exceptionnelle encore une fois du fait de sa situation et de son attrait propre. La grande classe! J'en reviens et je recommande sincèrement avec vigueur.
