County Kerry Cottage Rental Photos and Description

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.

Traditional Irish Cottage Offering 5 Star Luxury with Hot Tub
average rating of 5.0 based on 10 reviews


  • 5 of 5

"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

3 of my friends and I recently stayed at this cottage. It was beyond amazing! The cottage was spacious with comfortable beds and beautiful views. It's central location made commuting to nearby sights easy. You would definitely need a car to get you to and from the cottage. We enjoyed sitting in the hot tub after our long, busy days of sight seeing. Gillian is wonderful and is always very prompt in answering questions and assisting you with whatever needs you may have. I would definitely recommend this place to everyone and I am planning on going back with my family.

A slice of Irish luxury

  • 5 of 5

A slice of luxury in the wilds of west Wales. The accommodation is fantastic, an isolated position with panormaic views to the east, south and west. The cottage is really well equipped with a cook's kitchen, a full spectrum of tv and hifi, and great bedrooms. Access to lovely walks on your doorstep and the Ring of Kerry a couple of miles away. A wonderful hideaway within easy reach of the main sights of this amazing part of the country.

Cuanbeg is the perfect escape for your Holiday experience in Kerry.

Our group was made up of 4 adults and two kids (7 and 11) and was ideally located for activities for all included. There were an abundance of activities at the nearby beaches for the kids and some superb walks for the adults. Both Waterville and Caherciveen have all the essentials required and Cuanbeg is situated ideally for the bigger day trips to Dingle and Killarney.

The Cottage itself is stunning, well equipped, clean and spacious. Everything is as you would like to find it. A superb CD and DVD collection, along with Satellite TV make even the lazy days a relaxing experience. The icing on the cake is the hot tube and the tranquillity of the secluded location.

The owners were a joy to deal with, providing all the essential information required to reduce the organisational workload during our stay.

Cuanbeg is a must do if self-catering holidays are for you, would have no hesitation staying again or recommending to our closest of family and friends.

An awesome two weeks!

  • 5 of 5

There were seven in our party and we throughly enjoyed our stay at this cottage in Ireland.

Certianly from all of the pictures it looked luxurious, and sure enough on arrival that's exactly what we found. This cottage certainly in worthy of 5 stars. The kitchen is well equipped with every appliance and utensil needed. The dishwasher was great!!! We also enjoyed the collection of music and DVD's at the cottage.

The bedrooms were extremley comfortable. We loved all the little touches - cushions, candles, pictures, ornaments - all of this made us all feel at home instantly.

What can you say about the hot tub - apart from WOW! It was great at night with the LED's changing colour. Very relaxing and enjoyable. Can highly recommend after a long walk. Also a great place to be on a clear night. You get a great view of the stars without light pollution.

This is a great base to explore the Ring of Kerry. Derrynane beach was a real highlight to the holiday. We also enjoyed the Kilarney National Park. Oftentimes we would just get in the car and see where we ended up. Doing this helped us to find little coves, gift shops, pubs, galleries and more. Certainly encourage visitors to take or hire a car - was certianly needed to explore the area well.

Weather the first week was rainy, however week 2 was great. If we ever head back to Kery we certainly stay at this awesome cottage and incredible area.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Cuanbeg was more than expected and a great place to relax after our day trips. Awesome views from the house and the feeling of seclusion is definately not lost here. It is close to Waterville and Cahirciveen which made it even more accomodating. Extremely clean and the hot tub was a slice of heaven after being on our feet all day. Excellent time and would recommend to anyone. Thanks Gillian!
