What a lovely cottage this is set on a hillside beside a meadow of sheep. It is a quintessential country cottage of a bygone era which has all the comforts of a modern dwelling. We so enjoyed being transported in time and atmosphere. The kitchen was well equipped with everything contained therein being in good, serviceable order. During our 3 week stay we prepared many meals for ourselves and with ease. A separate lounge area was very comfortable and cosy for TV or reading. The lounge and chairs were very comfortable which is not always the case in rented properties. Upstairs were two bedrooms and the bathroom. The shower was hot and strong and the bathroom heated up very quickly with a wall mounted heater. And what a lovely view over the sheep fields from there!!! Our double bed was comfortable and although the bedroom was not huge it was most adequate. The second bedroom had two single beds but as we are only a couple we used this room to spread out and stored our luggage there.
The view from the cottage over the fields and mountains and out to the sea was just beautiful no matter what the weather. The fields were full of sheep with their lambs and cuckoo birds kept us entertained with their calls. We became rather attached to the property's chickens who looked forward to our stale bread each day. Our stay was very much a farm atmosphere which was novel for us.
We were only 10 minutes away from Sneem which is a colourful little village where we could pick up incidental grocery items plus more! We enjoyed ice cream from Annie's and coffee from Kelly's and Guinness from Sullivan's pub.
The Ring of Kerry ran virtually passed our front door and what a spectacular drive that is. We went as far as the Dingle Peninsular without feeling that it was a major excursion. There are many, many attractions in this area and we easily kept ourselves occupied for 3 weeks.
Don't hesitate - it's great!
