About Jer Foley

Kenmare Rentals is the most recent addition to our family business. Owning and managing O'Donnabhain's Bar & Guest House for many years, we have seen an opening for Self Catering / Holiday Homes as many of our initial guests who are staying with us for the last few years, are spending longer periods here, and it is another alternative.. We have also realised that it can be more cost-efficient and often more convenient for guests who are visiting Kenmare for longer periods of time, to make themselves at home in one of our Self Catering Holiday Homes . If it is your dream to spend a week in a Holiday Cottage in Co. Kerry, then we can make that dream come true.

In recent years, we have therefore newly built or carefully restored, and lovingly furnished and fitted out a small number of Self Catering properties in or near Kenmare town. The properties were designed and finished to our own high standards of comfort and requirement for space, and will truly offer you a home away from home. Kenmare is an ideal base to explore, the South West of Ireland . Co. Kerry, with the Ring of Kerry, Muckross House, and the Gap of Dunloe on your doorstep, as well as the beautiful Ring of Beara in Co. Cork, which starts in Kenmare.

Jer Foley purchased this cottage in 2008

Comfortable house in a quiet location yet only a two minute walk to the centre of town.

  • 5 of 5

Carrig Beag is a very comfortable house situated in a quiet street but only a two minute walk from the town centre.

Kenmare is a very lively friendly town with many vibrant bars and classy restaurants.

Great week, great location

  • 5 of 5

Been to Kenmare many times but this time brought friends from England who had never been to Ireland before. Chose this cottage because of its location, 5 minutes walk away (no driving!) from all of the great restaurants, pubs and shops of Kenmare but far enough away to not hear any of the noise. The cottage itself was excellent. It was comfortably and tastefully furnished in all areas. We didn't really utilise the lounge and TV at all during our stay because we were lucky enough to have 6 days of solid sunshine so were out and about making the most of it (as it doesn't happen very often!). The kitchen was well equipped with utensils, white goods etc although we only ate breakfast there as we made use of all of the wonderful pubs and restaurants for our food.

The beds were comfortable, bathrooms clean and both showers were powerful with plenty of hot water to go round. The property has its own parking space at the back which was handy.

We had a slight problem with one of the sinks not draining properly which we mentioned to Jer (owner) when eating at O' Donnabhain's that evening. He popped round and had it fixed whilst we were out the following day, so no problems there. Booking process was easy and Jer was quick to come back with answers to any questions etc.

All in all we had a great time, with the cottage being ideally located and a comfortable base to tour around all of the beautiful scenery Kerry has to offer. Would definitely book it again.

The Perfect Irish Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I had a wonderful time staying the in this most delightful cottage located in Kenmare, a gem of a town. Even on the odd rainy afternoon, the cottage was warm, cosy and comfortable. The ideal sort for exploring west Kerry, the two rings and national park. I would highly recommend it to anyone.

Thankful for all the help!

  • 5 of 5

Not only was the property comfortable and easily accessible, Mr. Foley and his staff were extremely thorough and helpful. We arrived jetlagged and a bit overwhelmed as first-time-abroad travelers, but the staff went out of their way to explain everything about the property. Plus, they were so friendly and accommodating, I felt entirely welcome to ask them any other questions about the area in general. Parking was easy, and the street is perfectly silent while being just a block away from the town center. On top of it all, it's just about a block away from Kenmare's stone circle, so having ancient history so close made this a perfect choice for our stay. Should I make it back to Kenmare, I'd unquestionably stay at Carrig Beag once more.

Perfekte Unterkunft

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus ist nicht nur sehr hübsch, sondern auch sehr gut gelegen - nah zum Ortskern, aber ruhig. Die Ausstattung ist gut - einzig fehlende Steckdosen im Bad (z.B. für den bereitgestellten Föhn) wären anzumerken. Dafür gibt es sonst überall genügend Stromanschlüsse. Der Empfang ist sehr freundlich - inklusive wichtiger Fakten zum Haus in der Gästesprache. Besonderer Pluspunkt ist der private Stellplatz hinterm Haus. Gern jeder Zeit wieder!
