Reviewer: Stephen Burns from Cardiff, Wales


The house is about five miles from Kenmare, the nearest town. It is a lovely home with easy parking. It is situated on a hillside overlooking a lake with stunning views in the morning and evening when the sun is right. There is easy access and wood floor throughout. There are two bedrooms with an en-suite toilet and wash basin in the main bedroom. There is also a wet room and accessible toilet. The lounge and kitchen are large and there is every cooking utensil you can think of. There is a small flat screen TV, but only RTE channels that are not very good. Sky would be a great addition. Access to the nearby Ring of Kerry is easy and that area is beautiful although some of the roads are poor. All in all, if you want a week in this area, it really is brilliant.
