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.

Glorious Stay!

  • 5 of 5

There are so many wonderful things to say about our stay at Eugene's Cottage. We picked this place because it was fairly centrally located within the Ring of Kerry and because we wanted privacy from other holiday goers. The Ring of Kerry is a very popular vacation destination.

The cottage was very accommodating to our small family of four - two adults and two boys (4 and 5). We enjoyed having a fire in the fire place morning and night and we enjoyed little hikes down to the Blackwater river. The kitchen had all the essentials to cook a nice breakfast, or a simple dinner. The rooms were lovely and comfortable. It was easy to find the cottage and the owners are top notch! Very friendly and helpful - they were so kind upon our arrival with fresh scones and Irish butter, yummmmmy! There is a very small grocery store at the top of the hill for essential items if need be. However, there is a big Tesco's (grocery store) in Kilarney.

We enjoyed lots of adventuring to the many places within the Ring of Kerry. To name a few:

Eco Tours and Blasket Island (Dingle Bay).

Skellig Micheal and Cliffs of Kerry (Portmagee).

The Coachman's Pub in Kenmare for food and live music (any eatery on Henry's Street in Kenmare is worth a try).

Drumquinna Stables for horseback riding (not far at all from the cottage)

Muckross Park on the way out of Kilarney was an amazing day for all the family. Within the park we went to the Traditional Farm and the boys really enjoyed that.

Ross Castle in Kilarney.

Hiking at Torc Waterfall.

We enjoyed a lovely meal at The Strawberry Field pancake house.

There's lots to do within the area - too much actually. Enjoy your time and in our humble opinion, Eugene's Cottage is the place to stay; especially if you're looking for a quiet and comfortable stay away from the buzz of other vacationers! Five Stars!

Picture perfect

  • 4 of 5

Everything was exactly like promised in the description! Absolutely NOTHING to complain about, not even the weather. The cottage is placed in a location where you find peace and quiet, not even the cows made a sound. Having a car handy is a good idea, so one can explore the country whenever one feels like it.

The owner of the supermarket/pub/filling station are friendly as well, helpful when asked for the way for instant. All the people we ran into where nice, friendly, and interested where we came from. so all in all: yes, I would recommend the cottage to family and friends.
