In conversation with a stranger sitting next to me on my return flight home to Canada, in his Irish accent he described Killarney as the "best town" for any foreign tourist to visit in Ireland. He explained that "Killarney has everything Irish"!
Having just spent 5 days in this wonderful quaint row house, I realized that he was right. Every kind of restaurant, wonderful pubs, hotels, entertainment, shopping and grocery stores are literally two minutes away. You might think that being that close would be noisy - it isn't! The street is quiet and safe.
We are three senior/active couples who packed everything into our stay and this house was a perfect base. Tim had provided his own suggested route to follow Ring of Kerry and Dingle Peninsula. It was perfect including stops at Petite Delice in Cahersiveen and Marina Inn in Dingle. Be sure to include Valentia Island and Skellig Ring, Conor Pass and Camp Pass - absolutely fantastic!
We golfed Ross Golf Course, a good deal including club rental. We toured Ross castle, Muckross house/garden, Gap of Dunloe, Torc Waterfall and more. We had a rented van and enjoyed driving to these attractions, it's not necessary to have your own car as numerous tours are available.
The house is great! It is well described in this listing. Nothing disappointed us!
Thanks Tim and Bernadette!
