“This is a lovely home set up on high with lovely views over the lake.”
The house is clean, spacious and comfortable. The owners were extremely helpful and Mary, in particular, was very kind and empathetic to my wife who suffers from MND and found the first days travel to Waterville from the UK extremely arduous, as we arrived in the area in pitch black rainy weather, we could not locate the house in the dark and they came and led us up to it. Three observations though, I am not sure that charging for fuel at such a high rate is fair to visitors in the non-high season, personally, I would prefer this to be part of the upfront price as visitors in high season would normally attract better weather and would not require as much heating and lighting. !30 Euros for two weeks was a bit of a shock, considering that we used it on the timer.
Point two is that the TV is only terrestrial program channels, which are fine for Irish visitors but for many others, I suspect like us not what you would expect in this day and age. A version of Freeview would have been nice. We had to rely on watching old DVD films which were provided. Finally, it would be nice if there were a few food trays to use for meals, having to eat at the table is not always convenient.
That said, it was a thoroughly enjoyable and comfortable stay at the house and would heartily recommend it to prospective holidaymakers.
Kerry is beautiful and Waterville, in particular, is a great base for exploring the many sites. Great food at reasonable prices in most places, in particular, we like the 'Village Kitchen' in Sneem. Also, a pint or two of Guinness at the Butler arms hotel is a must each day :-) Charlie Chaplin stayed here on his many holiday visits to Waterville.
