Lovely stay! We couldn't have asked for a better base for our adventure during our tour of the Ring of Kerry, Killarney National Park and County Cork! Maureen was receptive and warm even with our late arrival!!

The house is just as pictured with spectacular views of the Dingle Penninsula. The location is a great jumping off point for sites around the Ring of Kerry. We particularly enjoyed the Kells House and Garden just down the road, which has an excellent Thai Restaurant and turned out to be our best meal while in the area. The house was very clean and generally well equipped for a large group. We had 9 and slept comfortably.

A true gem. If you get the opportunity to spend time here jump at the chance. We loved the cottage, the ocean views, watching the summer summer storms roll in and out out. Maureen's cottage is the destination, not just a stop to spend the night. We would definitely return if ever back in Ireland, and would plan to stay longer this time.

LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION!!! Views from this house are breathtaking! The house itself is one of the most unique places I've ever been in. Everything we needed was provided all we brought were some groceries. My family and I had the most memorable time in Ireland and in the Ring of Kerry! Also, the sheep dog demonstration at Caitlin's is a must!
