“Model holiday home, magical holiday”
Reviewed September 17, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

This holiday home was exactly what we wanted, the welcome and hospitality was more then we had anticipated. It is in an excellent location for access to all parts of the peninsula, so it’s super easy to get to beaches, shops, and a multitude of activities. We had come a long journey and Sarah went to trouble to accommodate our late arrival - the delicious scones and jam were a great welcome! The house was warm, bright and comfortable with a practical yet elegant flair. The rooms are perfect sized with comfortable beds, the linen is top hotel standard. We loved the easy clean surfaces, which were all spotless. Although the kitchen is very well kitted out we tended to eat out most of the time - this area has to be the food capital of Ireland! Home made, home grown - delicious food is so easy to access. We loved the lemon cake in the pottery just nearby! Even the award winning supermarket is a treat to visit. .We were enthralled by the magnificent scenery, especially where Star Wars was located, we made Island trips, sea journeys, enjoyed the beaches and the heritage sites, all nearby. We got to a fab Concert in St Johns, and had lots of traditional music nights in the pubs. We really enjoyed the golfing, both nearby, Ceann Sibeal, and in Dookes. We actually extended our stay to play Kilarney also, an easy drive. For us it was a real treat to come home to the calm and peaceful surroundings of the Lodge each night and sit out having a drink, knowing that the kids had been having a fab time also. - our only regret was that we didn’t bring along the grandparents who would have adored it, so we’ve discussed this with Kate and intend to book our return for 2019 bringing them also. - This house was home from home for us

“Wonderful”
Reviewed August 13, 2018 for a stay in July 2018

This was a great house and the location could not have been better. The welcome pack on arrival was a lovely thought especially after a long journey. Everything we needed for our stay was catered for with this house.

“Perfect family house”

We really enjoyed our stay at Kate's lovely house. It was beautifully clean when we arrived. Kate and Sara were very accommodating in allowing us to check in earlier than usual which was much appreciated after a long overnight journey with three kids! As were the scones which were quickly eaten on arrival.
The house is in a beautiful location which speaks for itself and has everything you need including a tumble dryer which was very handy for the summer kerry weather .
Would not hesitate to recommend this lovely property .

We had a lovely weeks stay in this cosy cottage in Ventry. Kate was very welcoming and made our arrival easy. The cottage was the perfect starting point for our trips around the peninsula, and a lovely home to relax in the evening. Would definitely book this again!

Hi Phoebe,
Thank you for your positive Review! It’s lovely to earn that you found our home a place of shelter and calm after those very exciting activities, rock scaling and diving, you’ve described to me. Delighted to know too that you loved the golf! It was unexpected and most generous of you to include me in your final golf outing by way of a ‘thank you’. - I’ll have to sharpen my game for when you all come next time!!- really enjoyed the outing, thanks. Thanks also for keeping the home so well, we do try to make sure everyone is comfortable and pleased and it’s great when that’s reciprocated. I look forward to your return, meantime have fun in the City! Regards, Kate
