Why Valerie chose Ireland

We choose this holiday home primarily because of its location and generous size,within the Kerry region. There are lots of beautiful areas in Ireland but Killarney and Kerry have beauty in abundance and the town of Killarney is very pretty indeed..We have been visiting Killarney for over 20 years and really like this majestic region which has spectaular scenery and world renowned beauty. It was easy to decide on this home due to its great location directly across from the lovely Lakes of Killarney and the magnificent Killarney National Park & Muckross House which are all within walking distance.

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with this home because it was spacious enough for all our family, was in a fabulous location and was also fortunate enough to have a bar and restaurant practically on site just next door. The leisure facilities up the road 500 yds away also attracted us because it meant the children and adults alike had access to a pool and we really liked the fact we could walk out the door across to the National Park for cycling and walking. Being less than five minutes to a lovely vibrant town means we enjoy Mountain & lakeside location with plenty entertainment and restaurants within five minutes.Also we felt when it rains in Ireland as it does tend to do, you have to be near activities to keep both children and adults entertained which we can do from our base in Killarney so easily. We find families enjoy our home because we have equipped it with all the conveniences you would need at home such as Upgraded hi-speed Wifi and Satellite television and a phone service not always available elsewhere. As we use our holiday home ourselves and are not absentee homeowners ,nor we do not employ anyone to manage our home for us, we do take extra care & interest in our holiday rental. We like comfort when travelling so we have tried to ensure everything you will need is readily available for your self catering holiday in our home by the Beautiful Lakes of Killarney.

Perfect stay in Killarney

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Killarney for one week, and besides the stunning sights and landscapes, this house was also a main reason that we enjoyed it so much. The house is in a splendid condition, immaculately clean and nicely furnished and decorated. Everything you need - it's there. Washing machine, dryer, coffe machine, super-fast WIFI, Sky cable TV... A lot of brochures and recommendations from Valerie concering restaurants, things to do etc. were also available in the house and were extremly helpful.

The owner Valerie was really nice, starting from the booking process to the check-in, everything was easy and well organised.

You can tell she really cares about her guests as not only could you find kitchen essentials like salt, pepper, herbs, tea, coffee, washing liquid etc. provided, when we arrived we found a big welcome basket with cookies, chocolate, milk, bread, butter and other things - even fresh flowers. We rented several houses during the last years, but this kind of welcome was nowhere to be found before.

So to sum it up, I can absolutely recommend this house when you are in the Killarney area, we will definitely come back some time.

I wholeheartedly recommend this home

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean, well-organized and very well-equiped (All we needed was available!)

The owner of the house was very welcoming. The product mix received at our arrival (fresh bread, cereal, cookies, cleaning wipes for our little daughter, etc.) gave us great pleasure.

The house was well-located to explore the region.

In conclusion, it was perfect!

Outstanding Luxury !!

  • 5 of 5

Have you ever wanted to pack all your home comforts and take them on holiday with you ? Well there is no need when you book Blarney House. Where do I start the quality of fixtures and fittings is superb from the living area, Kitchen and the bedrooms. The kitchen has everything you need to selfcater easily we loved the coffee machine especially. The house is spotless and Valerie goes out of her way to assist with any requests you might have. We have travalled all over the world and can honestly say we didnt want to leave after the week we spent here. The location is spot on 5 mins into the town and local supermarkets and the view over to the mountains makes this rental a holiday to remember. I wouldnt hesitate to recomend Blarney House to anyone wanting a quality self catering vaction. Thanks Valerie for everything Claire and family

5 star quality

  • 5 of 5

I would definitely recommend this holiday home. 5 star quality. There was a large welcome basket full of goodies, plenty of big fluffy towels, complimentary bathroom toiletries and most important to young teenagers free wifi! Blarney house is located in an ideal spot, convenient to Muckross Park, Torc Waterfall and many more sights. Also located right next door is The Oakes hotel which served delicious food. There are many hotels located within walking distance with great day and evening entertainment.

Thanks to Valerie for looking after us so well and we will definitely return if we are visiting Killarney again.

Owner's Response: Dear Linda Neil and Family It is with great pleasure I read your review, it is so lovely to hear our guests have enjoyed their holiday with us . You are spot on with our location, we are really very lucky to be situated in such a central position to enjoy the many conveniences such as the National Park, The Lakes, the INEC , great food etc....all so near our doorstep in Muckross. I know from meeting you in person also that you really enjoyed your nights at the Gleneagle INEC, they do provide fantastic entertainment and I guess that being only 500yds walk is a huge bonus when you consider we are a stone's throw from Ireland's largest event entertainment centre. Well it was simply a pleasure to have met you all and have you stay in our home, I sincerely hope we get to welcome you back again anytime you are in Killarney. Thank you very much for sharing your experience, I appreciate it very much and hope to see you again. Kindest Regards, Valerie.

Trip of a life time to Ireland

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Blarney House was fabulous. It was big and spacious for the 7 of us and impeccably clean. We were greeted with a large gift basket filled with wine,cheese,crackers,fresh baked cookies and brown bread etc... We had clean towels in each room and bathrooms. We had everything you could ask for hair blow dryers, washer and dryer, also a converter. At the end of the evening we would come back sit around the fireplace and talk about our day. This home is a great location, walking distance to all the fun pubs and restaurants in Killarney . Thank for everything Valerie ....We will be back!!!

Owner's Response: Hi Patricia and family I want to sincerely thank you for taking time to post a review of your recent visit with us. I am delighted to read you all seemed to have enjoyed our home, we do try to make our guests visit as comfortable as possible. You are spot on when you say we are in a good location, we love walking in the lovely National Park ourselves out by the Lakes in Muckross and was one of the reasons we choose this location when we bought the house. The onsite great restaurant happens to be a bonus and we enjoy the convenience of being only 5 min drive from the centre of Killarney too. I look forward to having you back again anytime you are able to visit again, Kindest Regards, Valerie

Blarney House

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed in the Blarney House for the week surrounding my son's wedding and thoroughly enjoyed it. We had the best time! The accommodations were super. Big kitchen, roomy living room with comfy chairs and couches for relaxing together. The upstairs had plenty of room for all of us with the three bedrooms and a full bath. Valerie made sure we had a highchair and a crib for the baby and left directions and helpful information for everything we would need.

We were close to a great restaurant and a quickie mart for picking up extras that we needed. Best of all because of the location, we were in a place where other families attending the wedding stayed and we were able to share our spaces and have a great week in addition to being in Ireland for a wedding! What a week!

Owner's Response: Hi Nancy, Ashleigh & All the family, I am delighted to hear you all enjoyed your accommodations in Killarney and found them "super" , it is always good to read we are providing a high standard of holiday home for our guests, and that we were able to provide all your wedding party with homes in the same location. Also not surprised to read you enjoyed the restaurant just adjacent, you are right it is really good and we are most fortunate to have it on our doorstep as there is a wealth of variety of restaurants in Killarney and certainly The Oaks is one of the top places for food in the area. It was lovely to meet you all and I am very happy you all had a great week at the wedding in Killarney. Thank you all sincerely for staying with us and we would be delighted to welcome you back sometime. Kindest Regards Valerie.
