Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We had a fantastic stay at Top of the Hill in Killorglin. The house is very spacious with fantastic kitchen and great bedroom. One of the highlights of the house the amazing views of the mountains, including the highest mountain in Ireland! In the evenings (summer) we watched this rather than television. Eileen met us and (email hidden), very accommodating and helpful and eager to help with anything she could. Very family friendly with amenities and attitude. Highly recommended.

  • Our stay at the Top of the Hill Holiday Homes was an absolute delight. Eileen (email hidden), and this was one of the best experiences with airbnb I have ever had.

    We were greeted by Eileen and her delicious (and now famous scones.) She showed us the in and outs of the house and also made some suggestions as to what to do around Killorglin and the surrounding areas.

    The house is conveniently located right on the Ring of Kerry, 15 mins drive from Killarney and is a perfect starting point for exploring Kerry.
    It is super clean and cozy, with big windows so we could always see the amazing view. The kitchen is well equipped with all the appliances we could have needed and with a big enough fridge for longer stays.

    The main bedroom was very comfortable and we were able to have very peaceful sleeps!

    Honestly we have zero complains about our stay and would recommend this holiday home to anyone visiting Kerry.

    We already wish to be back!!!
    Thank you Eileen for hosting us it was such a pleasure to meet you and your family.

  • Irish hospitality at it's best! Eileen and Eamonn were so welcoming, and have an immaculate house with a great view. They have outfitted the house very well. We had exactly what we needed to cook meals.
    The fresh scones (made by Eileen) when we arrived were a wonderful treat.
    We would definitely stay here again.

  • We absolutely loved staying at Eileen's holiday home. She met us as we arrived (so friendly and hospitable) and had left fresh scones/homemade jam for us. The home is beautifully situated along the Ring of Kerry and provided the perfect spot for exploring the area. The home was incredibly clean and comfortable (three bedrooms, kitchen, living room). We would highly recommend staying at Eileen's while exploring the beautiful Ring of Kerry and surrounding area.

  • Eileen & Eamonn were wonderful hosts, even had a batch of yummy scones awaiting us & drove us into town so we could experience a night in an Irish Pub. I highly recommend this home & if ever back there would definitely stay again, maybe a little longer, to truly relax & take in the scenery. Thanks again, 10 out of 10. Kerry

  • Beautiful house, immaculate condition, fully-stocked with amenities (notably including dryer and french press for coffee), incredible valley/mountain views, convenient to Kerry/Dingle/Killorglin/Killarney.
    Hosts were very pleasant, responsive, and helpful, not at all overbearing or intrusive.

  • This a lovely spacious house. Eileen could not have been more friendly. She even baked us cakes. I would recommend staying here.

  • My family and I were so happy with our stay at Top of the Hill. The house is great, big, clean, with very comfortable beds and everything you could possibly need. There was some milk and butter in the fridge, and even some delicious Irish smoked salmon! It made us really feel at home. Beautiful view over the mountains. Eileen and her son Muiris were very welcoming and helpful. They told us which pub to go to in the nearby village for some live Irish music. Great location for the ring of Kerry and the National Park of Killarney. If you're looking for a comfortable self-catering house in this area, look no farther! This is the best airbnb experience I've ever had. I would love to come back for a longer stay.
