About the property

Amazing views, total privacy, 3 double beds, sleep 8

Cuanbeg, when translated from Irish, means ‘Little Haven'. It is an authentic, traditional Irish cottage which was originally constructed in the 1930’s. It has been beautifully restored and now offers a unique experience combining all of the charm and tradition that you would expect of a cottage with the highest levels of luxury and comfort, including a state of the art hot tub offering the perfect way to relax and unwind after a hard day, at the beach, walking, fishing or golfing.

Cuanbeg has 3 double bedrooms which can comfortably sleep 8 people with the addition of 2 fold out beds. The main bedroom is en suite and there is also a communal bathroom incorporating a bath and separate power shower. The traditional appearance of the newly fitted kitchen cleverly houses all of the conveniences one could wish for, including a range style cooker, double oven, microwave, dishwasher and a large fridge freezer.

WIFI also included

"Cuanbeg is a refurbished cottage located a few miles from

Waterville. It was exactly what we were looking for as it is about 10

minutes by car from Waterville with all it has to offer and to the

beautiful beach at Ballinskelligs (even though the weather wasn't

ideal for swimming).

While it is close to all local attractions and amenities, it's

location is nothing short of stunning and from the outdoor hot tub,

we enjoyed the view looking out over miles of unspoilt countryside.

The cottage has three bedrooms including a loft bedroom which we

didn't need. It is beautifully furnished and equipped. It even has

an extensive CD collection to enjoy.

We will be back

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

Family of four had a great stay. Enjoyed the privacy. Cottage had all the comforts of home. Gillian was very helpful and went out of her way to make sure we were all set. The caretaker John is wonderful and has a sweet soul. Would definitely recommend this place to others and would stay here again.

An amazing stay in a beautiful home and location

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a stay at Gillian's cottage in Waterville. Received great communication from Gillian from the moment we booked, including directions to find the cottage and information about the local area. The cottage was really spacious and very clean with comfortable furnishings and everything we could have possibly needed. The kitchen was large and well-equipped, the beds were comfy and very large and the DVD's, games and books kept our nephew occupied. We did meet the caretaker and neighbour, John, who kindly recommended places to visit nearby including the Ring of Kerry (highly recommended for beautiful sights)! Gillian also kindly offered us to stay an extra night free of charge, which was a really nice gesture. The hot tub was a real treat after a long day site-seeing. We will definitely be returning in the future.

Lovely break!

  • 5 of 5

Misty October on Kerry mountains and the hot tub was exactly what needed! Kids really enjoyed it, settled into house like they were at home.

Hope to return and would def recommend if it's a break away from life that's required.

Thank you for a lovely stay, in a clean, well kept warm house with great views.

Beautiful Kerry

  • 5 of 5

Loved the house, lots of room and well kitted out. The hot tub was a fantastic addition. The views from the property was stunning, with a gorgeous mountain range. Very secluded which was just what we wanted and really fabulous beaches nearby. Kerry is definitely worth a visit, We'll be back to see more.

Absolutely stunning!

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely gorgeous. It was very close to valentia Island Indy beautiful area with mountains and beaches. The house itself had everything you could ever want or need. The owners were very kind and helpful. Will never forget sitting in the hot tub looking at the mountains and hearing the Sheep nearby.
