“lovely cosey cottages”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2011

We stayed here over the October bank holiday and had a brilliant time, The cottage was lovely & cosy got a real surprise how big it was inside, everything was inside you would need for self catering, Clean and tidy and in a excellent location & the site has been kept very well, with a friendly pub on the site. We couldn't fault anything about these cottages, The Couple that run this site couldn't do enough for us really polite and friendly, We took our pet dog which was a real bonus, Would highly recommend these cottages to anyone, We enjoyed our stay so much we are booking again for Easter next year.

We stayed for 10 days and had a really lovely holiday at these cottages. The proprietor was so nice and unintrusive. The cottages are so deceiving on the outside, as they are so spacious inside. Very cosy and very convienient to Killarney Town. They could do with a lick of paint though, as they look kind of worn on the outside which is a shame. The kids playground is also in need of attention. Tip: Bring your own pillows and blankets. The duvets and pillows are really thin and in need of replacing. Overall though, it was great and we're definately going there again next year.

it was ok. the 3 bedrooms house was big ,but very simple. the design is traditional, and it felt like going back on time, which is quite unique and fun, in a way. not the cleanest. it has a very nice and large playground ,but there is no privacy in it. the one tv is old and small. the drier is v-e-r-y slow.

We chose here so we could bring our dog which worked out well. No wi fi as advertised which was a big thing for teenage daughter. No DVD player as advertised which could have been useful with the kids. Plenty of space - comfortably sleeps 8 with 3 bathrooms. Not the cleanest - certainly didn't get a fresh smell. Good to have bar/restaurant on site - again not the cleanest. Two miles from Killarney town - but dangerous roads to walk. Overall a very enjoyable holiday. Do shop around for best price. There was a huge variance in price being paid for the same week - we paid about 550 where others paid about 800!

The couple who run this place are the most rude people I have ever come across. When we booked two 3 bedroom houses they could not have been nicer, but when we arrived they were not helpful at all.
Anything we asked for was a massive problem, like extra towels, which you have to pay extra for, seems to me like they are very lazy people and just dont want to be bothered.
There are dogs barking outside your window very early every morning.
The pillows are like sleeping on a pancake!
Duvet covers were moth eaten.
The matresses are filthy..I'm glad I didnt notice until the last day of our stay.
Your not allowed to sit at your picnic table witch is right ouside your back door and have a few drinks after 10pm. We were told very rudely to drink inside the house, we were not at all noisey as we had 5 young kids which were sleeping and if we were loud we would have woken them.
On our last night we were very rudely reminded of the check out time.
Its an awful shame because it could be a very nice place if it were run by nice people.

Room Tip: Dont stay here.

Stayed with family during Irish open(golf). was sufficient bedrooms and bathrooms but BEDLINEN,DUVETS,PILLOWS in need of replacing.They were clean but very worn, could see the stripped mattress through sheet! Only one very flat pilloow per person , I used a folded towel to add comfort. Duvets in our cottage very thin and not very warm. Not enough hot water for all eight to shower daily- last few had very tepid showers. A very big living room that would have held another sofa as only comfortable seating for 5, other 3 sitting on wooden kitchen chairs or on stairs like Kermit the frog! Chipped side plates and bowls should be replaced.Our cottage was very clean and on both occasions when we met Aggie she was very pleasant and helpful. It would be useful to have a file of local information available in each cottage, as no internet available to check anything ,resulting in a visit to the tourist office and gathering lots of brouchures which I left behind for next family. A lso alot of incorrect information on websites(westcoastholidays,bookingcom and goireland) regarding satellite tv,dvd player,wifi etc being available in each cottage. We did not have any of these extras even though we paid 799Euros plus electricity costs.If the owners took some time to fix these plus painted the exterior of all the cottages they would be beautiful.

please do not even think of booking these houses. they are soooo over priced. they may have been nice a couple of years ago, but now they are grubby and dirty. the caretaker is also very rude. we booked a three bedroom house and she insisted that we were in a two bed room, this ment that i had to cancel my parents visiting. we paid for a three bedroom,she blamed the booking agent saying you better read the terms and conditions, and dismissed me from her door as she was not WORKING... AWFUL EXPERIENCE.i contacting them and they agreed that we paid for the bigger house, at this stage she wouldnt answer their call, so we were left in the two bed dirty house, for the week.
on a different note the house keeping is really bad, no bin collection,no clean towels. it was just awful. i would urge anyone that is considering killarney to please look into the hotel apartments. these houses could be fantastic if managed better. dont expect any help from caretaker, she will tell you that she only works from 4-7 and provides you with no local information. nothing good about this development., barking dogs, rubbish at the back of the house for want of collecting..you name it.playground was dangerous and unkept.pub staff were nice, but even it was grubby.i am genuine in saying this, i am generally an easy going person, but this place ruined the holiday.also €5 per day for electricity not mentioned...another joke. much much nicer places in killarney so keep looking, dont settle for this. i have photos of dirty unkept rooms to follow

Room Tip: dont go!! if you do bring your own towels, a print out of itinery, and a bin man!!
