“Thanks!”
Reviewed August 17, 2018 for a stay in August 2018

Lovely house in an amazing location. Very short walk to the beach and we were blessed with a few nice days too.
House is well equipped and nicely laid out. This is my fourth visit to this house and looking forward to 2019.

“Love this house”
Reviewed August 16, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We've been coming to this house for a number of years and really love it. It's so well equipped and the gardens are perfect for small children (I have two) to play games, cycle their bikes etc. Ann is very easy to deal with and quick to respond with any requests. And it's a short stroll to the best beach in the world, gorgeous soft sand and lovely safe bay with crystal clear water. Looking forward to my next trip already!

Thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Haven. The house was perfect for our family: the size, location, it had everything we needed. We loved the area, as well and we're looking forward to returning next year!

“A beautiful and relaxing holiday at The Haven!”
Reviewed July 15, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

What a perfect cottage for our family (mom and dad and two teenagers). The location was perfect - on the Ring of Kerry, just a few minutes walk to the beach, a few minutes walk to castle and abbey ruins, and a few minutes drive to other villages. Perfect location to be away from crowds and busyness, but close enough to anything you might need. Scenery all around is gorgeous, so much to see and do. The Haven itself was perfect - lots of space, nice kitchen, brilliant family room upstairs for relaxing or watching tv. We plan on making this a yearly holiday spot!

“Lovely spacious house in great location.”
Reviewed September 7, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We spent two weeks in this lovely house with three young children. Located within walking distance of the beach meant that we visited everyday (though sometimes in raingear). The kids really enjoyed the huge garden and the gated entrance ensured safety. The house itself is very spacious and comes very well supplied with all basic provisions (toilet paper, cleaning supplies, delph etc.) Ballinskelligs is a nice distance from Cahirciveen and Waterville. We visited lots of wonderful places for afternoons or daytrips. We look forward to returning in the future!!
