Doon Cottage exceeded our expectations by a million miles! It is a wonderful and cozy place to stay, with amazing grounds and even more amazing scenery. A perfect location to explore the Ring of Kerry, and not too far from both Sneem and Kenmare. The donkeys were there every day to get their carrots, and both Pat and Tim were fantastic in helping us to get the logs for the fire. This is a highly recommended place to stay and we will be back again as we simply could not get enough of the place!

A magical, wonderful trip to Ireland

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed at this beautiful cottage in mid-May. Although the weather wasn't the best, we enjoyed our time in Ireland and loved coming back each night to Doon Cottage. We would relax in front of the fire, and plan our activities for the next day. If you want to be away from it all, this is the right place to go. Kenmare is exactly what I pictured as a typical small Irish city and was not too far away. I highly recommend this wonderful home.

We had a wonderful week at Doon cottage. it was a perfect place from which to walk, visit some wonderful beaches, drive the Ring of Kerry and Valentia Island [ don't miss it!] or to just relax. The beds were comfortable, the rooms cozy and quaint but modern enough to be comfortable. Loved it!

Surpassed all expectations -- Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

The charm of Doon Cottage made this our best vacation in the last several years. All the amenities made our two week stay perfect. Washer / dryer, dishwasher, well-stocked kitchen, and a thoughtful supply of books and puzzles made it seem like home. Quiet, charming, and beautifully decorated, the cottage was a perfect place to come back to after exploring Southwest Ireland. One of the worst moments of our vacation was having to leave. The two donkeys greeted us each morning, rain or shine. (We supplied plenty of carrots). Located in a quiet, rural setting, Doon Cottage is the perfect place to get away from the typical tourist attractions. We have vowed to visit Doon Cottage again.
