My husband and I, my parents and our four children stayed in no.2 recently. We adored the house as it was so comfortable for all of us and the ensuite bathrooms really made it. It was great to have a separate bath for the baby in the bathroom downstairs too. My older parents took the bedroom downstairs which was wonderful as they can find stairs difficult. They enjoyed sometimes retreating to that beautiful room but also spending family time with the rest of us in the comfortable living/dining area. The children enjoyed the swimming pool in hotel and we also did a lot of sight-seeing. The location is great for the Ring of Kerry and Kenmare is a very attractive town with restaurants serving great quality food. I would highly recommend staying in No.2.
This is a fine well-equipped house in a fine location ideal for a group / large-family vacation.
Seven of us stayed here over a two week period and had a lot of fun. Kenmare town is just a short distance-away and Sheen Falls Lodge, just over the road.
The only niggles we had with the house were around the maintenance services who proved not to be very responsive to our needs.
- Ice maker (essential for party people) was out of order and remained-so despite promised repair.
- No BBQ Calorgas and the replacement Flogas we got from the nearest garage was not interchangeable, this threatened to derail an important event for us and some guests.
- Poor quality broadband / wi-fi.
- rubbish from the previous tenants was not collected and so the lines remained full and stayed-so into our second week.
Other than that we had an awesome time.

Everything was wonderful. The house is beautiful and very clean. Only two things that could be improved. There was a lack of hot water for showers in the morning and it took forever to dry the clothes in the dryer. The dryer has a condenser and there is water that has to be emptied in order for the dryer to work properly.
Otherwise, our stay was wonderful and we would definitely return to Sheen Falls and Kenmare again!
Lovely super confortable spacious villa-style house in a very beautiful well kept estate. We were a group of 4 couples from Belgium who all said the same:"Let's stay here forever,heaven can wait!"
