Best Accommodation in Ireland in Our Several Vacations There

"Karen was the very best vacation rental owner offering the very best holiday apartment which we have ever encountered in Ireland or anywhere for that matter. We stayed at her gorgeous apartment for the last two weeks of the year and through New Years Day. We cannot over-emphasize both the high standard of accommodation as well as the efforts of Karen in being an exemplary host. From the moment we arrived, we were over the moon to find this wonderful holiday apartment. The apartment was immaculate, and we immediately felt utterly at home. In fact, the apartment is so lovely and comfortable that we never wanted to leave every morning and had to force ourselves to do so. There are a number of wonderful walks in the area, and the lovely town of Kenmare is a close drive away. We are so grateful we found Karen and her apartment and have already pre-booked another two-week period with her in the future. An example of how thoughtful and kind Karen is is that when I rang her from the airport shortly after we landed in Shannon, I told her that our luggage had not arrived with us. I asked her if we could borrow pjs, and when we arrived, not only did she furnish us with pjs, but also other clothes to borrow as well as an array of toiletries. This was so comforting since we were very upset our luggage wasn't there, and we had absolutely nothing of use in our carry-on baggage. This vacation was an absolute joy and Karen's apt was a main reason. She even had the apt decorated for the holidays and that was a lovely, appreciated extra. We are never staying anywhere else in Kenmare. We are so grateful to have finally found the ultimate holiday rental."

A True Home Away From Home!

"We cannot say enough about this property and our hosts Karen and Patrick! We spent the month of September in their sea view apartment. The property is first class having been professionally decorated. It is definitely large enough for four adults. Karen is extremely attentive. She contacted us prior to our arrival to see if there was anything special that we needed. She had left breakfast fixings as well as a bottle of wine which was so thoughtful. The apartment is in a rural setting on the Ring of Kerry and is so quiet. It is an excellent location to visit the south of Ireland. Day trips can be easily taken to the Dingle Peninsula, the Beara Peninsula ( which is a hidden gem), the Ring of Kerry, Killarney National Park, Rock of Cashel, Kinsale to name a few. When we saw the bus loads of tourists being dropped at hotels we were so thankful that we were going home to this fabulous apartment. I would highly recommend Karen and Patrick and their lovely property with a marvellous ocean view."

Just perfect !

"We spent a wonderful week in this lovely apartment. It is a very comfortable and quiet place, perfectly equipped with everything you need. All new and spotlessly clean. We enjoyed the fantastic view from the patio. A perfect base to explore the Ring of Kerry and the Beara Peninsula. Thank you Karen and Patrick for a warm welcome, a lot of Information about the area and the restaurants in town. They even thought of filling the fridge with all the things for a delicious breakfast on Sunday morning. We would highly recommend this place and hope to come back."

Luxury apartment with fabulous views

"We thoroughly enjoyed our week in this modern, clean and spacious apartment with fabulous views. It has a great patio to sit on with a drink at any time of day. It is equipped with everything you need and in an ideal location for visiting the Ring of Kerry and Beara peninsula. The welcome pack was a lovely surprise and the fresh fruit and flowers. Karen was very friendly and offered plenty of advice and suggestions of places to visit and where to eat. She kindly drove us and picked us up from The Boathouse Bistro on our wedding anniversary and organised a glass of bubbly for us on our arrival. After a day taking in the stunning coastline, scenery and historic sights it was a treat to return here and relax each evening. Karen was always on hand if needed and we would not hesitate to highly recommend staying here."

Fabulous peaceful location

"What a lovely home. Thank you for sharing it with the passing strangers! We loved the walks up the strand and a glass of prosecco at dusk on the patio taking in those amazing views and so close to the delightful little town of Kenmare. From here we travelled the Ring of Beara, what an amazing drive! Many thanks!"
