We were 2 families of 11 (basically adults). The house was very well equipped and despite our numbers we felt we had loads of space. Our weather allowed us to spend a lot of time outdoors. The view across the bay is second to none and so remarkably peaceful. If you are wide awake after dark take time to see the night sky as it’s so incredibly clear. We couldn’t recommend this place highly enough.

Just back from a wonderful stay in this fantastic house. Had everything so I didn't need to pack the kitchen sink. Car definatly needed, sneem a few minutes drive away. We loved D O'Shea's and Rineys in the town. You would never get tired of those amazing views. There were tears leaving Tiny, who never left us when we there. Fabulous place definitely be back.

We had a great time at this Holiday rental, everything was perfect we even had a pet dog for the week called Tiny that came around every morning and evening from next door farm to play with the kids and was great fun. You are approx 10mins drive to Sneem Village and 30mins drive to beaches dotted all the way along the Atlantic Way. The location is excellent for privacy and hill walking or just general relaxation. You will need transport to get to amenities with lots to do in the area for kids and families alike so if in large group you will need you car if going in split groups to different activities while there. Great place thanks to Reka next door who was our host and to Tiny the dog forever chasing that elusive stick. *****

If it is a remote location in an area of outstanding natural countryside with outstanding views over Kenmare Bay this is the place to be. The house is spacious and well equipped, lending itself easily to large groups. Our party consisted of 8 adults and 4 young children and Nestle Stones provided a perfect experience and venue for our family gathering.

We stayed at Nestle Stones for 2 weeks in September. The house was excellent. Wendy, the owner, had made sure that the house was well equipped and we were amazed at the amount of necessities that were provided. More than enough towels and linens. The kitchen had everything needed for cooking in, no shortage of anything. Definitely one of the best equipped rental houses we have stayed in. The house was extremely clean and bright and well decorated and spacious with great views of Kenmare Bay all around from the expansive windows . The house sits in large well kept grounds in an idyllic setting overlooking the bay and Beara Mountains. Very quiet and oh so peaceful just the sound of the cows grazing in the surrounding fields. All in all a superb house. Can't say enough about it. Reka, the caretaker who was just next door, was very helpful and easy to contact when necessary and took care of us. Her dog, Tiny, adopted us and provided us with hours of amusement with his antics. He would accompany us on our walks down the lane. Great dog, we miss him! Sneem is 15 to 20 mins away with some really nice pubs and eateries and a grocery store and the town offers some nice walks along the river. Kenmare is about 25 mins away with more selection of shops and pubs etc. And of course all of The Ring of Kerry is right there to be explored easily from the house. I would definitely recommend Nestle Stones as a great place to stay.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this comfy countryside retreat. The views from this house were incredible and just like the photos on line. We happened to have pretty fair weather and enjoyed clear sunny days and beautiful sunsets across the bay. We had a cow pasture in our front yard and the young dog from the farm next door visited us every day. There was a sheep path down the way and we were totally immersed in nature. The place was clean, well equipped, with the exception of proper outdoor furniture. We wanted to spend time outside and enjoy the scenery but were limited by no outdoor dining set. The benches and chair provided were quite rickety and one actually crashed to the group when my husband was sitting on it! The house had plenty of space for our group of 10, tons of games and videos for kids, and lots of hot water, etc. The beds were comfy and the views from the bedrooms upstairs were awesome. The house was up a narrow gravel and dirt drive and may put some drivers off, but was worth the drive when you pulled into the driveway and looked out over the bay. It is located a good 10-15 minutes from the village of Sneem, where you could buy groceries. We found Sneem and its people very friendly and helpful. We especially liked Pat's Kitchen for breakfast and the best scones we had on our trip!
