You couldn’t ask for a more perfect holiday home to relax in the Ring of Kerry. Everything needed in the house for comfort and more, including little extras left by Angela and her sister to make the place homely (including snacks for the first night - coffee pods, bread, milk, jam and wine etc 😉 ). Quiet, warm, comfortable, equipped, tastefully decorated, clean, light and spacious. The location is off the main road, so quiet and able to appreciate amazing views all the way to the skelligs. Watching all the different types of weather roll in makes any time spent in the house enjoyable whatever the conditions outside! And it’s close to whatever you need on either side of the peninsula. A great base for both beaches and the mountains, plus all the interesting cultural and historical sites to see. Thanks Angela! Hoping to be back another year.

This house was so great, you couldn't ask for a better house, it was so lovely and had everything you need, scenic views from kitchen, living room and master bedroom. The views of Skellig Michael will stay with me for a long time. It's a great base for a week or two to explore the Ring of Kerry. Lovely walks along the lane with beautiful flowers, I cannot recommend this house/location highly enough. Angela the owner was so helpful and kind. So lucky to have stayed here.

We 7, over three generations, agreed, our week in ‘Angela’s house’ was possibly the best holiday we have had in Ireland. The house lacks nothing; spacious, bright, spotless and Angela ensured new arrivals have all the things you might forget. We spend lots of time in the kitchen and it has everything, and a bit more, you can possibly need. Towns nearby are all worth visiting. We love Sneem snd Kenmare but others are very worthwhile. Special visits recommended are to the SkelligSix18 distillery (gin ) and Skellig Chocolates. Both were hugely popular, and tasty! Even the weather was welcoming. Bright, sunny and warm. Plenty of beaches, but our favourite is the one close by. When the tide moves out there is a flat sandy beach with welcoming and safe waves. Walkers are spoilt for choice; from the Kerry Way to local walks with spectacular views. All of this will remain in our memory for a long time. Remaining for ever in our minds is the truly amazing view of Skellig Michael. Right there in the middle of the vista looking out to the ocean. A view we all enjoyed from waking to late at night.

We had a fabulous week last summer at Torann na dTonn and can’t wait to return. If you’re looking to really get away from it all you will love it here. Angela is a fantastic host, really spoiling us with lots of treats in the fridge on our arrival. A Beautifully clean and cared for home, we curled up by the fire at night and each morning opened our curtains to the ocean. Beautiful beaches close by and lovely place to really relax. We brought our family dog with us who loved running on the beach and snoozing the evenings away by the fire.. It was hard to leave. Thanks again Angela, Meabh and family

I cannot speak highly enough of the owner Angela, her wonderful home and this spectacular beautiful Location.This has everything going for it for all ages. Children have the quiet private beach in Lohar or Derrynane and Waterville, a few miles out the road. Teenage Sons were entertained with Watersports, Horse riding and climbing the many hills and Mountains that surround this home. My daughter and Myself enjoyed long walks around Lohar (highly recommended) the photos that we took their alone will be mounted and framed, it is like a different world and one to cherish. Coming back at the end of the day and taking in the stunning views surrounding this home. Amazing!! Angela, had been so kind with her welcome fresh brown bread and other groceries to help us on our first nights stay and will give you an abundance of information around the area. So helpful. Thank you Angela! The home itself is one I would love for myself and well equip with everything needed and more. Beautiful stone work inside and out and wait till you see the view from the vast windows in the sittingroom, Kitchen and Bedrooms. I will most definitely be returning!

We have just returned from a fabulous week in this beautiful house overlooking the sea with spectacular views towards the skelligs.The house is really spacious and bright,spotlessly clean ,so well equipped with nespresso machine,dishwasher,beach towels and Galway crystal wine glasses!Angela left a welcome pack including lovely wheaten loaf from Centra in Waterville.The beach near the house is ideal for swimming and not crowded.We had a lovely night toasting marshmallows on the beach.There is a 5k loop walk around the house with sea view that passes an ancient Fort.We picked up the Kerry way walk behind the house and walked approximately 8 miles to Cahirdaniel via Derrynane.Had a well earned Guinness and food in The Blind Piper and got a lift home with the local taxi ,Gerry.The 13 year olds enjoyed the walk too! Derrynane beach is really amazing however getting parked is a nightmare.We definitely will be back but for 2 weeks next time!

Where do I begin with this house. This house was amazing the views were spectacular It was so lovely to sit out in the evening and wake up in the morning and see the Skellig rocks in the distance. The house was so cosily decorated and spotlessly clean, it was so well equipped with everything we needed. The owner Angela couldn’t have been nicer and more helpful such a lovely welcome from her and she left a lovely welcome pack of food for us which was so appreciated and so kind. Kids loved the chocolate treats! This house will last with me for a long time would make me want to move to Kerry to it’s beautiful scenery and live on Angela’s beautiful house. Thanks Angela you really were so lovely.

Clean and Spacious house with the essentials there on arrival. Angela is a great host and has full knowledge of the area. The town of Waterville is only 5 mins away. However its the location of the Property that gives it something else, with views of the Bay and Skellig Micheal in the distance. We would highly recommend this property for Families and hikers. We will definitely be back. The Murphy Family from Galway,
