Excellent Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week staying in our little yellow house near the Ring of Kerry. Everything we needed was available for us, and more. Such a gorgeous setting to relax in at the end of each days adventures!

Bridget was an excellent host, could not have asked for a better reception and info. Since she lives right next door in the B & B, help is easily available, should the need arise.

For those that might give pause to the extra utilities charge (gas and electric billed at the end of your stay)--- ours was 18 euro, and we were a family of 5. Budget friendly and perfect accommodations for us!

Exceeded expectations! Thank You Bridget!! Excellent accommodations in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Visited Ireland from the USA. My primary requirement was a central location to explore County Kerry. Bridget's holiday home is for all practacl purposes a new 4 bedroom home. It is in new condition and was spotlessly clean. The exterior grounds are kept to the same high level of finish as the interior. Bridget is a very pleasnt and informative lady. I would recommend this to home and if I travel to Ireland in the future would definetly stay again. One of my favorite discoveries was an excellent Thai food resturent in Kells Bay, which is about 18 kilometers from this property. The turn off from the main road is tricky to find. Don't give up, the food is excellent and the view is outstanding. If you're from the USA and want to engage in a lively conversation over a pint, seek opions on the 2016 presidental election!

Great time in Kerry

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful time staying at Bridget's vacation cottage in Glenbeigh. Bridget was friendly and helpful the whole time. The house is huge, comfortable and very clean, and the views are absolutely spectacular. It is very conveniently located to visit the Ring of Kerry, Killarney National Park, and Dingle, which are all amazing. Highly recommended.

Beautiful cottage in Kerry.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week, beautiful house with everything you could need, home from home. Beautiful views from front and back,very peaceful and idyllic, only regret having to leave to come home. It is a very clean, comfortable house with all the facilities at a very reasonable price,couldn't ask for better.

You are at the heart of Kerry and therefore you are not spending hours travelling to get to different locations. Valentia Island, Tralee, Killarney, and Dingle are quite close and you can drive to Cork which is about an hour and a half's drive away.

All being well I hope to be back again.

Superb holiday accommodation

  • 5 of 5

A very accessible location with beautiful views of the mountains from the front and back of the cottage. We were warmly welcomed by Bridget and shown around the house. There were flowers on the table and Bridget had left tea and biscuits to refresh us after our long journey. The cottage was very clean and comfortable with all modern amenities. The nearest village of Glenbeigh and shops is about three miles away, and the beautiful Rossbeigh beach about 5 miles.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5 spending one week in the Kerry region. This vacation rental is the best. It is truly as described and shown on the pictures. Bridget is wonderful to deal with. The cottage location is perfect. It is central to all the major sites. It sits slightly off the main road therefore you will not hear any traffic noise.

The cottage has all the amenities. Actually more than you need. Our teenagers enjoyed playing outside the backyard and the Wifi to connect with all their friends and the latest postings. They also enjoyed sleeping in their own rooms.

From the cottage we saw most of the sites. The most memorable is the drive thru the Gap of Dunloe. We drove thru the Gap after 8pm to try to be respectful to the jaunting cars and other visitors.

We had a wonderful time in Ireland. Thank you Bridget.
