I absolutely enjoyed my stay at Pebble Cove. The owners were so kind and helpful and with the excellent weather and the beautiful garden it was a perfect two weeks' stay.
The cottage is really cozy and does have everything you need for a few weeks of holiday bliss. The setting is absolutely beautiful and quiet. From the wonderful garden you can hear (and sometimes see) the seals playing in the bay, which is under 50 metres away.
For the critics - yes the cottage is a bit basic, but it never pretended to be something different. It still has everything you need - oven, fridge, electric stove, microwave, cd player, flat TV and a fireplace. The owners even provided wood for the fireplace free of charge (I didn't need it but it was very kind of them). The mattresses seemed to be rather new and I slept wonderfully. All in all the cottage is charming and cozy.
The area is perfect for touring the Ring of Kerry. Sneem with its cute colourful houses is 5-6 km away and offers everything you need (supermarket, restaurants, pubs, etc.). Search also for Sneem in Trip Advisor. The beaches of O'Carrol's Cove and Derrynane beach are not too far away (approx. a 20 minute's drive).
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the cottage and I will definitely come back. Thanks again to the owners for their very warm and kind welcome!
The good points: this is on the Ring of Kerry, next to some of the most beautiful areas in Europe. The owner was lovely.
The bad points: I won't go into huge detail. The house is tired and in need of serious updating. The mattress on the double bed has springs that dig into your back: I am writing this just after my return and we are both in pain and will need to visit an osteopath. The house is most uncomfortable in general.
This is the South West of Ireland. It can rain-a lot-and you need a cottage where you can go back to that is comfortable, where you can read a book and hide out. This is not that cottage.
