We have stayed at Eugene's Cottage for 3/4 weeks for the last 14 years, and we will be staying again for 4 weeks this year. We are so comfortable at Eugene's it's like Home form Home.

Is this review biased towards Eugene's, "Yes" a very big yes.

The Cottage is delightful and is just as described in the advertising. It is situated in a beautiful area of Kerry in an ideal location to explore The Ring of Kerry, Dingle and the Beara Peninsula. Kenmare the bustling market town is a 20 minute drive away with its array of restaurants to suit all tastes, and a multitude of shops and convenience stores, our favourite restaurant being the "Lime Tree" in Shelbourne Street.

The Blackwater Tavern is 1/2 a mile up the road from the cottage and has a well stocked shop, fuel pumps, post office and large bar with live music some evenings, well worth a visit. There is so much going on in the area that you are spoilt for choice.

The cottage is very well equipped and maintained. Over the years we have become very close to Michael Harrington and his family who have always gone out of there way to make our holiday at Eugene's Cottage special, nothing is too much trouble for them.

I would recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a quiet stress free holiday. We always take our dog with us and he loves the wide open spaces and numerous walks in the area.

Great Cottage but had a hidden, surprise fee

  • 3 of 5

Eugene's Cottage was lovely and well stocked with all necessities but I am only giving it 3 stars because of the bad feeling we got when we arrived and were shown dozens of electric switches and then told that they were reading the meter and we would have to pay for the electricity we used during our stay. This fee was no where to be found on the VRBO info or Home-stay info. and we paid in full when our request to stay was accepted. When I brought this up to the owner I was told that "people usually ask if there are any additional fees." What? So in a foreign country standing at the door with our bags we felt that we were being held hostage. In the end we carefully shut off all the switches and conserved on heat---staying chilly throughout our week's stay and had to pay additional when we checked out. Not a huge amount to pay but it should have been disclosed upfront on the rental info.

Tranquility

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at many cottages throughout Ireland and the UK and this setting and cottage is the best we have chosen by a long shot for our needs (Peace, quiet yet close enough to amenities and freedom for our springer spaniel to explore!). If you are a small family/couple look no further! The owners were extremely helpful throughout booking process and during our stay.

Definitely will return here.
