Beautifully equipped and wonderful views

  • 5 of 5

Apart from the unpredictable Irish weather everything was perfect. The cottage exceeded all expectation. It was spotlessly clean. Furnished and equipped to a very high standard and offered spectacular views. We would highly recommend it to anyone wishing to stay in this beautiful part of Ireland.

Private out-of-the-way modernized cottage with great views

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I really felt at home at this beautiful updated cottage. We watched whales in the harbor from the dining room table. It is up on a hill so great views of Kenmare bay. The roads getting to the cottage are typical narrow, Irish country roads, so we just took it slow and it was fine. Took us about 20-30 minutes to drive to the SuperValu or Lidl in Kenmare. We purchased bottled water to be safe since the house is on well water, as recommended by the host. The outdoor seating was great, it was clean inside and out. Had everything we needed: laundry facilities, fridge, freezer, range, WiFi, nice bathrooms and bedrooms. Would definitely stay here again if we return to the area. Loved this less touristy area of the coast. Property mangers were fantastic! Thank you!

Traumhaft !!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Absolut traumhafter Aufenthalt. Cottage und seine Lage sind ein Traum. Die Landschaft atemberaubend schön. Die Straßen ein echtes Abenteuer. Noch enger geht nicht. Hatten ein SUV als Wagen - grenzwertige Erfahrung 😁?. Ring of Kerry und Beara sind ein Muss. Traumhaft. Kontakt und Abwicklung absolut Top.

Traumhaft schön gelegen und fast perfekt ausgestattet

  • 5 of 5

So einen erholsamen Urlaub wie den im Rockwell Cottage hatten wir lange nicht. Das Cottage liegt sehr ruhig an einer Seitenstraße des Ring of Beara, die so schmal ist, dass sich nur sehr wenig Verkehr dahin verirrt. Gehört haben wir eigentlich nur die Schafe und Vögel. Wenn man die Einfahrt zur Straße runter geht, gibt es in etwa 100m Entfernung einen Zugang über die Weide zum Meer. Dort befindet sich ein Angelplatz. Ins Wasser kann man allerdings nicht, denn die Küste ist felsig und es geht noch einige Meter runter bis zum Wasser, das uns eh zu kalt gewesen wäre. Das Cottage ist sehr gut ausgestattet mit zwei geräumigen Schlafzimmern mit genügend Schrankraum auch für einen längeren Aufenthalt und zwei Bädern. Die Betten hätten für mich noch bequemer sein können und schade fanden wir, dass man das Wasser aus der Leitung nur abgekocht trinken sollte. Wir fahren aber auf jeden Fall wieder hin.

Einfach perfekt

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren vom 17. Mai bis 24. Mai in diesem wundervollen und gemütlichen Haus, es war einfach nur traumhaft.

Es war alles da, was macht braucht und sogar noch viel mehr. Der Ausblick auf die Kenmare Bay ist unbeschreiblich schön.

Es gibt zwei Schlafzimmer mit jeweils einem Doppelbett. Das eine davon hat ein Badezimmer mit Dusche. Die Küche ist wirklich mit allem ausgestattet was man braucht. Auch gibt es eine Waschmaschine sowie einen Trockner im Haus.

Einen neuen tollen Grill hat uns David (der Hausverwalter) gebracht, nachdem wir ihn angerufen hatten und gesagt hatten, dass beim alten Grill der Rost weg ist. Er hat uns den neuen Grill noch am selben Tag vor die Terassentür gestellt.

Das Fernsehprogramm war nur auf englisch, was uns aber überhaupt nicht gestört hat, da wir jeden Abend gespielt haben und gar keine Fernsehen gebraucht haben. Internet funktioniert hier bestens und ist auch recht schnell.

Zum Einkaufen braucht man nur ca. 15 Minuten bis nach Kenmare zu fahren, dort gab es einen Aldi, Lidl und Supervalue.

Es war der perfekte Urlaub für uns, ruhig und weit weg vom Trubel.

Wir können dieses Haus zu 100 % weiterempfehlen und sollten wir wieder einmal nach Irland kommen, können wir uns sehr gut vorstellen, hier noch einmal zu wohnen.
