Testimonials

We are finally back in the States after a super holiday in your country. We are all agreed that the Dingle Peninsula was THE most beautiful part…. The scenery was just breathtaking, I think the Peninsula is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen in my life…

You don’t say nearly enough on your website about just how super the local beach is, particularly when the tide is out and it is full of interesting tidepools. Also, the fact that you can walk to Castlegregory along the sea road, no worries about cars, and see fields, cows, ponies, dogs – great stuff for city folk like us!

Our 4th year here in a row. We love. Bliss! Rained at some point every day. Some hail storms, high winds. All made the cottage seem more cosy. Peat fire simmers gently. Bowlers bar in Castlegregory is a warm, welcoming place. As is Keanes Foodstore – everything you want, including the best beef we have ever eaten….The cottages are so well equipped…. — G & R R Northumberland

Kerry Cottages to us are dream cottages and you wouldn’t find better in the south of France. There is not a lot we can say that hasn’t been said by others, except 10/10 to Ray & Christine Marshall for the way “Kerry Cottages” are.. — F & S Dun Laoghaire

Had a lovely time on our second visit to Kerry cottages. Tralee is much pleasant, …If you’re looking for a nice dessert the granny tart from Ted’s cake shop (on the square in Tralee) is terrific…. Enjoy your stay! — D & P W Chicago

If you are reading this, then we are happy for you. You are living in the best cottage in Ireland. With sadness we had to leave 4 of July. I had to admit that I was wondering about the rate. Its worth every penny!! We have only one thing to say. WE WILL BE BACK!!! Sorry to say there is no moreSwedish people in this book. They don’t know what they are missing — Fam Gibbemark. Sweden

Our second year running at Kerry Cottages. More excellent seafood at Ashes, Spillanes, The Half Door, Doyles. Helpful babysitting…We got the impression that Dingle Peninsula was a little busier this year, make the most of the place whilst you can – it may yet be spoilt. At present it can provide the ultimate peaceful relaxing holiday — D C England

In Tralee don’t miss the Geraldine Tralee exhibition especially the mediaeval village, Superb. We enjoyed the pasta and fish in the Singing Salmon restaurant in Dingle…the excellent lunches at the Waterside Winebar, Dingle (closes 6pm) Many enjoyable meals here in the cottage thanks to the excellent kitchen & Helen’s cooking.

Lighting the peat fire was an experience..we were still having problems after lesson 97 …all I can say is that when the fire is going it is lovely and gives off a terrific heat …an unforgettable holiday … — M & D H York

Love the cottage, the best holiday home we have had in over forty years. Wish we could transport it home to Berkshire…The Dingle Peninsula is just lovely, mountains and sea…Promised our grandchildren to capture a leprechaun. — M & C.M.

It has been the most relaxing and most enjoyable holiday we have ever had. We brought our youngest Ciara aged 12, Lissara aged 10 and their friend Jane aged 10 and my niece Sharna aged 10. It was supposed to be just a short holiday for them before we went off on our own holiday, but it has turned out to be the break we all needed. The cottage is perfect…everything in the cottage is spotless and in working order, something we have never found anywhere else. — E & P McA Newry

My husband who is a keen fisherman went off to do some fishing to a lough in the mountains, my son also went on a ramble in the mountains…we had lovely trouts for breakfast the following morning. — K & J J N Wales

The cottage is really first class, very well furnished and very clean. Our fourth / fifth visit to Kerry Cottages – the relaxing air has made me unable to count!! Gets better each year. What a marvellous break from life in the city! The cottage and its setting exceeded our expectations.

The Kerry Cottages topped everything we had ever dreamed of for our first vacation in Ireland….lots of sun, surely one of the prime beaches in Europe, superbly finished cottages, plenty of good salmon and lobster and beautiful scenery. — J Family Frankfurt

We spent a very good time in this beautiful cottage and we hope we will return soon. — U. Berlin

We appreciated everything here; first of all the nice cottage and its equipment (excellent idea the information booklet, the maps etc.) then the scenery – each window view is like a picture on the wall! – the beaches, the rainbows & of course those delicious basses and trouts. — A & D France

Definitely one of the most beautiful places I have yet experienced. So much within a walk or a bike ride….The trail up Caherconree, the forest,the beach. And the lovely people. — P S Atlanta Georgia

We have broken some records, I’m sure. 14 days of beautiful sunshine.Though we hated to be away from the gorgeous views around the cottage, we have toured the whole peninsula & made side trips to Killarney & Tralee. We have loved every minute and have been so comfortable in this nice cottage. — S S Atlanta, Georgia

The cottage kitchen is the best equipped I have ever seen; cottage as a whole is very comfortable. — C. Kent

Maybe it was the beautiful scenery. Maybe it was the miles and miles of sandy beaches. Maybe it was because the weather was kind. Or yet again maybe it was the peat fire and comfy home to come back to at night! Maybe we will find out when we come next year. — W. Co Down

Arrived at the cottage approx. 5.30 p.m., it was so homely to find some tea, sugar, milk, bread & butter (beautiful home made bread) what a lovely Irish “Cead mile failte”, go raibh maith agat. We made our ‘cuppa’, enjoyed it and then just marvelled at the simplicity, economy, cleanliness of the cottage with everything supplied. What thinking must have gone into this great plan! The peace and quiet, no telephone or doorbell, letters. Buiochas le dia, what a change from the busy world we had left behind for this holiday. Mrs Spillane was very kind and helpful, the people of Castlegregory so friendly, – so warm hearted – the lovely meals at “Spillanes” – the Castlegregory carnival week was in ‘full bloom’. We really enjoyed watching the ‘feats’ etc. Never have we enjoyed such a holiday – the people we met at evening mass so friendly and welcoming. We will be back. Our daughter who spent her honeymoon in one of these cottages recommended it to us and we now have experienced the same wonderful atmosphere – weather just glorious. Many many thanks to all concerned. — McS Dublin

What a lovely cottage – the small things are looked after so the big things all come right…. — T. Co Kilkenny

More sun and higher temperatures than we had been told to expect! (July) The cottage itself was a great success and – for once – fully lived up of the promise of the catalogue! — A & H H
