You can't believe the view! Does not explain on the photos or the description, but you feel like you are on top of the mountain! A wonderful place, beautifully decorated and adorable at the same time. We fell in love with the local kitty cat and she made us feel at home. Laura was a great co-host and we loved coming home to the little yellow door...a great place! Explore the dingle peninsula and the ring of Kerry and anything else you can find. It was a great place!

We're glad you liked the view and the cottage decor. On cloudy days, the view is not so obvious but most days, Carrantoul, Ireland's highest mountain, can usually be seen in all its glory.

Stayed at 5 different airbnb's over a 9 day trip in Ireland. This was by far the worst one. Would not recommend it to anyone.

Response from Nick:
Extremely disappointed to hear (from my hospital bed) of Karen's perceived unhappy experience at our cottage, Doras Bui, and I would like, if I may, just get back on a couple of the points: Karen's expectations were not based on the airbnb description (which we try and make honestly and accurately) when she describes the cottage negatively as 'very secluded'. It is only 50 metres from the next house and a 5 minute drive to Castlemaine with its post office, petrol station, 4 pubs, 2 shops and police station - hardly secluded but not Manhattan either, I suppose! We market is a as good base for walking, which it most certainly is and most guests love the peace and tranquillity that the mountain location has to offer. Karen also mentioned that the only amenity offered was toilet paper! She must have missed using the dishwasher, washing machine, instant hot shower, wood burning stove, central heating in all rooms, garden furniture, soap, washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets, cloths, firelighters, kindling and logs for the fire and a wealth of information on places to go and see locally. The driving directions that we send out are complimented a lot by guests, having photographs of all major landmarks on the route from the nearest town and no one ever gets lost. I don't understand the issues here! We communicated fully on all aspects. We try hard to provide the balance between offering enough information whilst not overburdening guestswith information they can find out once they arrive. We seemed to fail getting the balance right with this particular guest, for whatever reason.

Comfortable 2 bedroom cottage with views over the valley and close to all of the amenities of the Dingle Peninsula. Lovely quiet location and a great hot shower.

Response from Nick:
Yes, this location is certainly quiet with only continuous birdsong disturbing the peace. But, it is also only 5 minutes to the nearest shops, restaurants and pubs, 25 mins from Killarney and 35 mins to Dingle. A great place to see all that Kerry has to offer!

This was a very cute and cozy place to stay during our trip abroad to Ireland. The view out the front door is absolutely incredible! Nick was very communicative and made check in very easy. One thing to be aware of is the smell of mold in the home, particularly in the bedroom. We don't think it was an overall cleanliness issue, but the home itself is very old, which is part of its charm, but there was a downside in this case.

Response from Nick:
We welcome the positive comments. With regard to the slight damp smell - Yes, this old cottage is 150 years old and does not have the benefit of insulated cavity walls or a modern damp-proof course. The occasional smell, when it has been raining consistently, is one of 'damp' (but then it smells damp here in Ireland outside as well when we have had a bout of rain!). This has not been a regular issue, thankfully, and is easily solved with a bit of ventilation with one of the windows open and with the central heating turned on or by stoking up the wood burning stove.

Out of all the Air BnB's i stayed in Ireland this was the only one charging us for heat and extra wood. The value was not there compared to other stayed which included wifi, heat, wood and basic food. Its nice authentic cottage with a great view
Nick User Profile
Response from Nick:
We have a policy of telling all our guests in advance that we make a charge for the heating oil that guests choose to use, that we offer an initial supply of wood free of charge and that we do not offer any food. This is also mentioned on the airbnb site. We charge for the heating oil used, simply at the cost to us with no profit involved. As promised, we provide an initial supply of wood for the wood burning stove free of charge - WE DO NOT CHARGE FOR WOOD, EVER and we provide free electricity which if you simply want hot showers, you can have them at any time of day or night and as many as you want. The shower offers instant hot water at NO CHARGE to the guest. We're very sorry if a whole 2 bedroom Irish stone cottage is seen by some to NOT be value for money at less than 100 euros per night. We think it is a unique, authentic, traditional Irish stone cottage, offering great value , as do many of our guests, thankfully ( or else we would not be in business).
