“Great house and location from heaven”
Reviewed August 8, 2012 for a stay in June 2012

A really great house to rent and plenty of space.The dog had plenty of room and made himself feel at home.
It was so lovely with a real fire place and one night when we had rain it was lovely to look out the windows and be so cosy inside.
The view from the house was out of this world.Great walks in the area and lots of nice restaurants.
We would rent this house again.

“Nice views and great location on the Ring of Kerry”
Reviewed July 18, 2012 for a stay in June 2012

My favourite thing about this house was its location. It's up off the main road. We felt like we were fairly secluded. There are very nice views of the bay. (Though you can't see the whole bay due to a small hill at the other side of the road.)There are several beaches nearby, but unfortunately it was too cold to go swimming. It was also too cold and rainy to go on long hikes. We stayed inside a lot and enjoyed the cozy fireplace. The house is the perfect base to explore the ring of Kerry. There are several restaurants, pubs, and shops nearby.

The house itself is nice, and it's very clean. The only negative is that it feels old and doesn't have much character. But it has everything you need: nice kitchen, two bathrooms, bathtub, fireplace, and a pic-nic table outside.

Josephine is very welcoming, helpful and flexible.

“Lovely property in fantastic location.”
Reviewed September 2, 2011 for a stay in August 2011

We are a large family of 4 children including 1 wheelchair user and a 10 month old baby, we found Gorteen suited us perfectly, it is in what must be the best location in Ireland with stunning views from most rooms of the sea and mountains beyond. The house is very well appointed and had everything we needed and was spotlessly clean on our arrival.
We had some lovely weather during our stay and spent lots of time on Derrynane beach (5
mins drive) and the smaller beach 2 minutes walk from the house, both these beaches are beautiful and clean.

“Wonderfull walks, nice pubs.”
Reviewed July 4, 2011 for a stay in December 2010

The area is absolutely beautifull. A lot off fresh air away from the city. Good possibilities for hiking, sheepwatching, drinking Guinness and eating lamb and fish in and around the villages on the Ring of Kerry. And in summer possibly verry nice to swim at the nearby beach... in winter it's a bit to cold for that.

“You will not be disappointed”
Reviewed June 14, 2011 for a stay in July 2010

Caherdaniel is a magical place, we discovered lots of beaches which are pristine and really beautiful. This is a great house for spreading out in. The front bedroom with the ensuite is lovely. Although the house is on the main road, it is set up on a hill so its quiet and private. The views are excellent and shops and beach are a walk away. Great to have a beach bar that you can walk to. Photos do not do the house justice.
