food lover and drinker of fine wines
We loved the Alder Lodge and only hated to leave it. Our 4 year old was in tears when it was time to leave. We all enjoyed the cows and sheep next door and before we left, they each had been given names. The house was wonderful. Marvelous location, right on the RIng of Kerry and near Dunloe's Gap where we enjoyed a marvelous evening of Irish music. The children were allowed to come so that was perfect.
The property was lovely: spacious, comfortable, peaceful and with beautiful views over the valley and towards Killarney. Unfortunately we didn't meet Gerardine as she had broken her foot a few days before we arrived. Her daughter Kerry came to meet us, take us to the property and show us around. She did her best with this. Gerardine was also pleasant on the phone and very quick to act when we had a power outage during our stay.
On the downside, it was disappointing that neither the dishwasher nor the dryer were working.
Note for those coming to the property by car: there is about a kilometre of steep, fairly rough gravel road to get to the house from the main road
Beautiful house and wonderful experience. Would definitely go back and would have liked to have stayed longer.
Gerladine (email hidden). Her house is beautiful - very clean, spacious and comfortable. We had a group of 9 and there was plenty of room for everyone. The views from the house are excellent and there is a large outdoor BBQ area which we enjoyed. It's only a short drive to Killarney village.
Overall it was a great house at a very reasonable price. I would definitely stay here again in the future! If I had one negative it would be that we were required to give a deposit of €100 each. We were hesitant to hand over such a large sum of money, but in hindsight I think Geraldine was just being cautious, and rightly so because the house is lovely. We got the full deposit back with no problems at all.
We had a great time staying at Alder Lodge, by far my favorite place on our trip. Gerardine was very helpful, answered all my questions, was there if I needed anything and made me feel right at home!
The house is huge, clean, well lighted, fully equipped and the view from there is stunning. The hosts were also very good. I would highly recommend this place.
Gerardine's beautiful home in Kerry is a slice of heaven! It is large, well equipped and situated in the beautiful countywide outside Killarney. We had a comfortable stay and enjoyed the luxurious bedding and other amenities. The views are incredible, as well. Thanks for sharing your home with us, Gerardine.

My family and I really enjoyed our stay at Alder Lodge! A beautiful house with plenty to do in the local area. Thank you for having us, Gerardine!
