“This is a wonderful place to stay.”
Reviewed April 30, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

This is a wonderful place to stay. The view of the sheep and the mountains just beautiful. Your farm house is spotless and cozy. Everything you need is there. Only 5 minutes from town and if you want to go out to the pubs a Taxi service is available. Thank you Mary for your hospitality and your wonderful treats such a nice thing to do. It was a pleasure to meet you your such a warm and kind soul. I'd recommend your lovely place in a heartbeat. Patty ,Dan ,Deb , Jackie, and Mary Ann.

“Great place - highly recommended”

We spent a week here in April and were more than happy with our choice of this holiday cottage. Location is a few km outside Kenmare on the slope of Peakeen Mountain, which gives wide views (and a possibility of some afternoon work-out climbing the mountain). The house stands alone between trees, accessed by it's own driveway. You'll find the sheep on the adjacent meadow and birds singing in the trees in the morning. The interior is very comfortable with plenty of space. The house is extremely well equipped - there is everything from USB charging device to hairdryer. Fruit and biscuits were on the table for welcome. Definitively a recommendation.

“Amazing - as close as you can get to nature!”
Reviewed September 28, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We felt incredibly lucky to happen upon this house, what a Gem! Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, would highly recommend to any family. It was really great to be able to interact with all the farm animals, we even got to see some deer and foxes! The hosts Mary and James are so lovely and the house is just charming. It is an ideal base to discover, in my opinion, the most beautiful place in Ireland! 100% - Stay!

“Peaceful and relaxing”
Reviewed July 21, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This is our second time staying in Kilkeana farm house. We also stay last summer and enjoyed it so much we just had to return. If you are looking for peace and quiet look no further. We have three young children aged 3, 5 and seven so we also wanted somewhere safe. James and mary were so helpful, with lovely homemade scones on arrival. The house was spotless and fully equipped. Safe to walk with the kids. Stove to light a log fire in the evenings.

“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.
