Thank you Eileen and Robert for meeting us though we were late and for the lovely surprise you left us. A very nice and thoughtful gesture.
Love your cottage, the 4 poster bed was truly comfortable.
Thanks for the bag of logs. The cottage feels like home.
The views were great and at night the stars were beautiful.
We are not walkers but love driving the ring of beara,the ring of Kerry and mizenhead and sheeps head . We also drove the kockatee drive. The views like you said were worth the drive.
We had rain the first 2 days but very lucky to ve beautiful sunny and warm weather after.
Thanks for the tips on where to go and for your hospitality.
You both were great
We had a wonderful time in this beautiful cottage with its fantastic views of the mountains. The cottage is perfectly located for exploring the wonderful Beara Peninsula on your doorstep or the Ring of Kerry or Dingle Peninsula. There are some wonderful local pubs a short drive away. The cottage itself is cosy and comfortable, with an open fire kindly supplied with logs by the hosts, Eileen and Robert. They also supply a warm welcome (we won't spoil the surprise) plus lots of useful information about the local area.
A fantastic trip.
Dear Eileen, dear Robert, thank you for providing us such a wonderful holiday in your lovely house! The location is extraordinary, the view on the mountains outstanding and one week is much too short to visit all the sights on the Beara peninsula. We loved the lonely location of the house, the fire in the fireplace and the very comfortable bed. It was really nice of you to provide everything we needed for comfortable living and we were touched by your warm welcome. Thank you for all!

We had a lovely holiday in Lauragh and the accommodation was very good
Robert and Eileen were very accommodating and when we arrived chocolates,wine and a basket full of goodies were waiting for us,the open fire was on and a cup of tea was on the kitchen table,it was a great welcoming.
We had a fantastic walking holiday with our dog milo who also settled in well to the cottage
The shower needed improving as the pressure was to low but apart from that everything was perfect
Thank you Robert and Eileen
We have just spent a week in Valley View Cottage. It was our first holiday with a baby and owners Robert and Eileen couldn't have done more to make it a success!
We arrived after a long drive in the pouring rain, to a roaring fire and a pot of tea. From start to end, there was a warm, personal touch. The owners live close by and are on hand in case of any problems (we had none), and are very knowledgeable about Beara and its attractions.
Beara is just wonderful - much quieter than the Ring of Kerry but as beautiful. The cottage is a handy 20 minute drive from Kenmare (shops, supermarkets, pubs and restaurants), and minutes away from the breathtaking Healey Pass. Even without leaving the cottage, views from the kitchen window and garden terrace are stunning.
I cannot recommend Valley View highly enough! Top marks for location, comfort, and welcome. Exceptional value for money when compared to other rental properties we've stayed in. We hope to return one day!
Myself and my girlfriend stayed with Eileen and Robert for 4 nights. Although the weather did not favour us. We had a fantastic stay and would definitely stay again. Eileen and Robert were perfect hosts and Kerry is simply beautiful
