Very nice property in a beautiful location.

"We stayed here two nights, ate in the pub - enjoyed local music and Irish dancers. Apartment was very nice - we were on third floor, and there were no lifts, which was not an issue for us but could be for many people. Also, no air-conditioning: it was unusually warm when we were there, but we were not uncomfortable. It is located in the Killarney National Park, which is very beautiful. I would stay here again."
