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 2006

Guestbook comments from the manager

Modern, spacious house. We loved design of the living areas and large bedrooms, esp. jaccuzzi bath. Situated on hillside over looking Kenmare bay and mountains the views are breath taking. Owners very helpful when travel arrangements had to be changed.

Excellent house

  • 5 of 5

The house was just like the pictures. The flowers around the house were an additional nice treat. A word of advice, though. There are two identical homes on the property ... Bun Cill Athat and Barr Cill Athat. We learned Bun means "lower" and Barr means "upper". While the views from Bun Cill Athat are nice, the views from Barr Cill Athat are spectacular (since it was higher up the hill). If views are important to you and Barr Cill Athat is available, request that home. If Barr isn't available, Bun is a very nice alternative.

A great week in March

  • 4 of 5

We spent a wonderful week around Easter in the holiday home; the house is bright, modern und spacious. We were there with 4 persons. That´s perfect in two bedrooms with a bathroom each.

To go shopping you need a car; Kenmare is about 4 km from the home.

The gas oven is tricky: there is a timer that needs to be set; but it can also get set erranously. My suggestion: Someone should change the mode so that it will operate without the timer or: a fool-proof manual / instruction should be at hand.

Although there is another holiday home on the premises (same gate and driveway) we never saw the other house nor the guests.

Gas and electricity has to be paid extra.

Our host was always very friendly and helpful when we asked for minor repairs (eg. replacement of bulbs).

Wow!

  • 5 of 5

Such a large beautiful home in a quiet private location. With a view! Great location between the Kerry and Beara Rings. Close to Killarney and the National Park. Loved Kenmare. House very well furnished. The kitchen is huge! Jer, the host, was incredibly friendly and responsive. Hope to return some day for a much longer stay.

Lovely property and location for a complete rest.

  • 5 of 5

The property is located in a raised location with fabulous views out across the river to the mountain. The house was nicely furnished and equipped with everything you need. Thank you to Jer for all his help during our stay.

Hope to return again soon.

Only 2.5 miles from the town of Kenmare is the townland of Killaha, beautifully located on a gently sloped mountainside from where lovely views of Kenmare Bay, the MacGillycuddy Reeks and the surrounding countryside can be enjoyed. Killaha is situated on the Ring of Beara, renowned for its rugged scenery and peaceful beauty spots. Being that close to Kenmare, Killaha has all amenities and services close at hand but enjoys a quality of life that is synonymous with the countryside.
