We loved our stay at Cara's cabin in Kenmare! She met us promptly for check-in and out. The cabin was plenty big and well kitted out for the 5 of us for a week. It's wonderfully situated below her house on the seashore, in the woods below Cara's house but out of eye-line so it feels private as well as cozy. We loved walking the old farm road on the property, and our daughters loved combing the beach for shell-treasure. Would come back here for sure.
So sorry that you were unable to watch the DVDs - the TV has a built in DVD player! I must make it clearer as it is quite hard to spot! Glad you enjoyed everything else and hope to see you again someday :-)
Wow! We couldn't have been more pleased with the cabin and our generous and kind hosts. The location was spectacular and the house very clean and welcoming. Plenty of brochures of local attractions were provided and Sam even showed us how to dig for muscles along the shore for dinner one night. Wish we could have stayed longer! We loved the time we spent in town and enjoyed the house and hikes even more! Thank you!
We stayed at the cabin at the end of May. We absolutely loved it. The location couldn't be more peaceful, right on the shore and totally secluded but only 5 minutes drive from Kenmare. It has everything you need and Cara is a great host. Maps and a guide book came very handy for our walking weekend. And we loved the hot tub! Perfect for winding down after a whole day's walking.
Cara was a good host, she was ready for us at the time we told her, and already had a fire going in the cabin. She then left us to ourselves to enjoy our holiday, just like we like! Below I've reviewed the highs and lows. Overall, definitely worth the price, especially with more than two people.
-lovely wood and peat burning stove in the living room
-right on the river, beautiful views, and we walked down to the river almost every day and enjoyed the beauty and fresh air, and we saw a seal quite close on our last day there!
-we only slept on one of the beds, but it was quite comfortable, very firm
-very, very clean
-very comfortable couches in the living room
-TV in the living room with about 12 channels plus radio
-close access to Kenmare - takes about five minutes to drive, and it is really nice to be that close but still be in nature
-lovely private trail that leads to a small waterfall
-good kitchen, large, with a good sized fridge, and all the things you'd need to cook, knives, pots and pans, etc.
-river water in the hot tub
-only one of the showers has heated water from the electricity and we didn't find that the fire or sun heated enough water for the other shower for more than about two minutes of hot water
-not a big deal for us, but although it is a private "beach," it isn't a great place to swim from (lots of seaweed and large rocks), and the host had their children or friends children go down and swim there on nice days
-a little bit sparse on the furnishings and decor
We stayed in the place just the two of us and it was quite large for us. I think a good amount of people would be 4 probably, as although there are beds for much more, the hot tub is small, and the living room and dining table would be quite a squeeze to sit 8 people. Again, overall this place is a great deal, especially with 4 people and maybe a couple kids. It was a good base to go to Kenmare and to see County Kerry from.
We slept here for 3 nights and it's been a wonderful stay; hot tub with sea view, very big cabin, lovely place and warmly recommended hosts!
We were made to feel very welcome...The hot tub was already running for us and there was Guinness in the fridge. The photos do not do it justice. Beautiful house, lovely area. Spotlessly clean. No cons, only pros for Cara and her lovely house. Will definitely be back again....but first I must buy a Smeg fridge for my wife.
Thank you Cara
What a nice place to spend some days in County Kerry.
The place is restful, which is perfect after a busy day on the Ring of Beara or Killarney ;) It was very clean and you will have everything you need in this charming house.
The garden is as well perfect to spend some good times.
It is difficult to understand how to use the electricity and the water (The water was very cold during one day, so it was impossible to take a shower / Even if we made a fire in the stove). With a baby it's not a good deal.
As well, the Hot tub was not very clean (water very brown).
But nothing to disturb our Irish Road Trip, everything was perfect, thank you Cara !!!!!!
Beautiful and well looked after house in amazing location. Very spacious inside with everything you could want, all mod cons and useful extras. Hosts were very kind and welcoming, but not at all imposing. Can swim in sea nearby or avail of the deck and hot hub. Perfect base near pretty Kenmare town for exploring beautiful Kerry and west cork.
We are a family from Germany with 3 children (4,8,10) and spent 4 nights at Caras beautiful cabin. To make it short, everything was perfect. Cara was very friendly, brought us some eggs from her hens, and told us nice places to go. The area around is great. 4 nights were definitely to short. Everything was clean and the house was as it was described at airbnb. The hot-tub was perfect. We spent hours and hours in the hot water while it was raining. The only difficulty we had to face was to get the children out of the pool again... ;-)
Thanks for your hospitality Cara, good luck for your future projects !
joli maison spacieuse très bien située au bord de la mer. Petit bémol que nous ne connaissions pas à notre arrivée, en l'absence de soleil, l'eau chaude est produite par le poêle après 3 heures de chauffe. La literie est aussi à revoir pour 2 lits et nous regrettons de n'avoir pu profiter du jacuzzi, celui-ci ayant une couleur très marron pas très attirante. Malgré ces 3 petites remarques, nous avons passé un agréable séjour, l'ensemble est très positive.
