“Wonderful holiday home for families”
Reviewed March 8, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We've just returned from our second time staying at Kilkeana Farm House and we'd like to say a big thank you to James and Mary for their fantastic hospitality and lovely cosy farmhouse, we'll be back (again!). We spent our days exploring Gleninchaquin, Molly Gallivans loop walk, Bonane, Kenmare and Killarney Lakes, and our evenings in front of the fire. The house has beautiful views towards the mountains and is surrounded by green fields. It is on a quiet lane with very little traffic. The bedrooms are comfortable and the jacuzzi bath was a huge hit with the kids (age 7 and 8), as was the complete freedom they enjoyed, exploring the land around the farmhouse and building dens in the field behind the house. Really recommend this lovely holiday home for a family vacation - it is ideally placed for trips to Killarney, the beautiful lakes, Kenmare (nice shops, pubs and cafes) and Bonane, and James and Mary are the perfect hosts. Also the house has a 4G signal with Vodafone and my husband downloaded 29 mb per sec, which was brilliant!!

“Perfect farmhouse holiday near Kenmare”

We stayed in James and Mary's lovely traditional farmhouse rental. The house is very well appointed and spacious. Great to have a wood-burning stove. Really safe location for children as the house is 1.5 km up a quiet road off the main road. Perfect location for exploring the area e.g Kenmare town is 5 mins drive or you can head up the hill towards Molls Gap. We will definitely be back!

“Perfect Holiday Location!”

Perfect holiday location for exploring Cork and Kerry (especially Ring of Beara and Ring of Kerry).
The good service from Mary and James started with friendly and fast communication during reservation of the house.
Also thanks to Mary and James for the warm welcome (including pick-up Service in Kenmare town, very appreciated). The house is well equipped and nothing is missing. Each bedroom has its own bath. After an active day it is a pleasure to relax in the living room in front of the wood fire place having a pint of Guinness or a glas of Jameson Whisky.
We would love to come back again.

We have stayed in this lovely farmhouse twice. Location, views, comfort and cleanliness all without fault. A very warm welcome and generous starter pack were provided by Mary and James. Excellent value for money. No hesitation in recommending it. Many thanks!

“Fantastic stay!”

We had a fantastic stay at Kilkeana and could not have been any happier!
The owners Mary and James are such wonderful people. They made us welcome from the moment we contacted them. My son enjoyed a baby crib and a high chair, while my daughter had lots of movies, books and games to choose from.
The house is in mint condition, with high end appliances, extremely quiet in beautiful surroundings. Lots of high end restaurants are just 10 minutes drive away.
I highly recommend this house which is a quintessence of Ireland, and we would go back there any time!

“Wonderful place to spend the holidays!”

This was a great place for our family to spend the holidays We were escorted to the property by the owners and this was great because it is in a very remote area and they were very helpful with explaining the home to us. We arrived to a Christmas decorated house with cookies and fruit waiting for us . The home has a washer/dryer combination appliance.....the dryer took a long time to dry clothes and we ended up hanging our laundry everywhere we could in order for them to dry thoroughly. We had trouble figuring out how to use one of the bathroom showers but since there were three bathrooms we just used the other two. The living room seats four comfortably on couches but we were only there for two days so it wasn't too much of a problem...might be a little tight for six people for a week. All in all this was a great place to spend time with family in a beautiful part of Ireland.
