Lovely spacious and light room in family home in quiet and peaceful countryside near Killarney, Co Kerry. Double bed with room for an extra single bed if needed (supplement charged). Perfect location for exploring the Ring of Kerry. .
Our family house is a mix of a modern build on to a turn of the century cottage sitting on just over an acre of land with a stream running at the bottom. The guest bedroom is upstairs and so not suitable for anyone using a wheelchair. There is a double bed in the room and space to put an additional single bed if needed. Hairdryer provided. The house is approximately 10 miles from either Killarney or Tralee and 20 minutes from 3 or 4 stunningly beautiful beaches including the famous Inch Strand. You will definitely need your own transport as there is so much to see and do. It's difficult to choose between Forest, mountains, beaches, Great Lakes or the choice of shops and restaurants. A perfect location for the ring of kerry or any other touring holiday.
Guests have sole use of a bathroom with Shower, loo and 2 handbasins, no bath. Bathroom is not ensuite. Guests can have breakfast at an additional charge and by prior arrangment. Guests are welcome to explore the garden and use the seated decking area. Breakfast (if booked), will be served in the family dining room or ouside (weather permiting). We are not a commercial business but a family who would like to see the spare bedroom used, enjoy meeting new people and like to share all that Kerry has to offer.
Interaction with Guests
Our interaction with guests can be as much or as little as desired! We are more than happy to offer advice and directions to local amenities, beauty spots and restaurants and always enjoy meeting new people. However we are very boundaried and respectful of our guests space and privacy. Guests must tolerate dogs and cats as we have both.
Our house is in the countryside but we do have other houses and farms around us. There are several circular road walks from the house or we are a short drive from an abudance of different walks, climbs, water activities, the towns of Killarney and Tralee. So we have the advantage of the quiet and tranquility of the countryside but are close by to a huge choice of activities.
We are approx 20 mins from Kerry airport and the same from Killarney or Tralee, both of which have Bus and train stations. There is room to park outside our house. Taxis are available from all these places but your own transport is essential.
Other Things to Note
Children are welcome and we can put an extra single 'fold down' bed into the double room. However they must be supervised at all times and be relaxed with dogs and cats. Nb We do not have a cot or stairgates etc. There may be an additional charge for children depending on their age.
We have a strict no smoking policy and since we have dogs and cats, no pets. Breakfast usually consists of coffee, tea, juices, porridge, fruit, breads/toast, cereals and eggs. An extra charge of 8-10 euro per head will be made for breakfast. A selection of teas is available all day for no extra charge. If you have any particular food requests they must be arranged in advance with the owners. Please note that we generally go to bed and lock up for the night by 11.30/12 pm and so if you are planning to be out later than this, you must arrange this with us or you will not be able to get in to the house.
Our stay with Rebecca was sweet! Her rustic cottage is a quick spin from Killarney and once you arrive you naturally acclimatise to country life. Our room's interior had a fresh, quirky and earthy appeal, and the comfortable bed was most welcome. Down to the soft furnishings it's obvious that Rebecca has a very creative and caring nature, the simple presence of fresh flowers or the scented oil burner in the funky bathroom was an oasis of calm. The power shower was refreshing in the morning and the tasty homemade breakfast guaranteed us a special stay. Rebecca was very helpful but appropriately respectful of our space! Whether it's to unwind or to have a vantage point to explore Killarney and the environs, Rebecca's home is a must! We will be back soon!
Fantastica; Rebecca ci ha accolti calorosamente a casa sua, ci ha dato moltissime indicazioni e ci ha preparato una colazione magnifica; la sua casa è un sogno!!!
Rebecca took much time to show us our room and bathroom and even offered us a delicious homemade chocolate cake and a cup of tea when we arrived in the evening. The breakfast (8€/person) was one of the best breakfasts I've had in a long time and we left her place stuffed and relaxed. Extremely comfortable bed!
Rebecca was warm and welcoming. Her house and the room were quite a bit nicer than it appears in the pictures. She always offered us tea when we arrived back and we had several good conversations about the area, things to see, and life in general. Nice location for going to the Ring of Kerry and Dingle Peninsula.
We did have a little trouble finding it though. Our gps didn't quite get us to the coordinates and we had to ask a very friendly neighbor for directions so I would recommend trying to get there before dark.
Thank you so much for the lovely feedback. Yes gps accuracy seems to vary from make to make - some people have had no problem and others get 'taken' to the general area but not the specific house ! The best thing is for me to give precise directions as a back up. So glad you enjoyed your stay.
Rebecca's place was amazing. The house is like something out of grand designs so it was a pleasure to stay there and enjoy our surroundings. Hosts were so attentive and kind and we really enjoyed our stay with them. Next time we do a triathlon down in Killarney this will be our place to stay :)
Rebecca and her husband are very funny and charming. We feel like at home. The house is incredibly nice, comfortable and modern and their pets are so lovely. The automated window in our room was amazing! We had a fantastic shower in a very nice bathroom. Although the breakfast was not included, we decided to take it and it was a great decision! The meal was very abundant and tasty. Highly recommended!
