    “As soon as we entered the house there was a strong smell of cigarette smoke.”

    We entered the lounge to be overwhelmed by the stench of stale cigarette smoke which despite opening windows and using our own air freshener we could not clear. It was disgusting.

    We entered the lounge to be overwhelmed by the stench of stale cigarette smoke which despite opening windows and using our own air freshener we could not clear. It was disgusting. As a result we were unable to use the lounge and were forced to sit in uncomfortable dining chairs in the kitchen throughout our stay. The furniture in the lounge was in a poor state, seat cushions were split and heavily worn. The open fire, that looked so attractive on your website, was unavailable (you did state at the end of your write up that it was unavailable, but why include an image of something that is not available?). The house was not welcoming nor was there the ambience you spoke of in your write up. The kitchen was reasonably clean and well equipped. We were unable to open the patio doors and the oven was greasy and unappetising. The blinds on the very dirty windows (inside) had been removed and we had very little privacy. We had booked this cottage as it had a downstairs bedroom and toilet/shower as one of our party has mobility issues.When we inspected the toilet, the seat had obviously been broken and repaired with glue and tape, not only very unhygienic but a health and safety issue. All three toilet seats are loose and as such a hazard.This caused a great deal of pain and difficulty for the person concerned. The bedrooms were poorly furnished and some of the linen stained. There was only one pillow per guest and pillow cases did not match. The bedside lamps were covered in dust and only one bedside table per room. There was no games room as stated in your write up. We had been looking forward to playing Table Football. Your images clearly portrayed a table football. There were 3 threadbare towels for 4 people, so we had to go out and buy our own as we had no confidence in their cleanliness and a basic requirement is a bath towel of your own. Parts of the bathroom were covered in dust.There was dirt around the inside and outside edges and corners of the showers and the toilets had stains and did not look to be clean. The brown splash mark on the dirty lid of the bin, beggars belief. We were all heartily disappointed and disgusted with 3 Baile on Tooreen. Not up to the standard we expect from Sykes.This experience has damaged our confidence in Sykes and spoiled our holiday

    We were disappointed and surprised to see a guest did not have an enjoyable stay in 3 Baile an Tooreen. This guest did not raise any of these issues with us when staying in the house. Over the past while we had guests visiting from Ireland and other countries and they praised the house. We aim to ensure our guests have a pleasant experience when holidays with us. Property Owner

The property

This spacious cottage is tucked away into the village of Killorglin, boasting an abundance of charm, with a spacious interior, most appealing to families or travellers.

Enter into the beautiful hallway which continues through to a lovely lounge, complete with an open fire and leather sofas where you can simply sit back and enjoy the warm ambience.

Looking out towards the village, this room invites natural lighting inside and creates a relaxing spot to spend a night in.

The wonderful kitchen has been graced with a country style, finished with lovely units and seating for six people to enjoy a home cooked meal together.

The ground floor also houses a front-facing double bedroom and a classic shower room, well-appointed for getting ready ahead of your exciting day.

Two bedrooms are located on the next floor, with the master benefitting from a walk-in wardrobe and a classic en-suite shower room.

Both rooms are a breath of fresh air, and with the addition of a family bathroom, the accommodation is complete in the highest fashion.

Wander outside to the enclosed garden should you wish to spend an hour or two under the sun, or adventure into Killorglin, the gateway to the Ring of Kerry with a variety of cafes, restaurants and pubs just waiting to be explored.

The town is also home to the annual Puck Fair, one of Ireland's oldest street festivals, held every August.

Close to a great choice of lovely sandy beaches and a golfer's paradise, this is a fabulous cottage in a diverse location, not to be missed.

About the location

KILLORGLIN, COUNTY KERRY

Killarney 12 miles.

The pretty town of Killorglin is situated in the heart of County Kerry, near the River Laune. Surrounded by great scenery, Killorglin is the gateway to the Ring of Kerry and offers a variety of cafes, restaurants and pubs, along with great fishing possibilities both on the River Laune and at nearby Caragh Lake. The town is also home to the annual Puck Fair, one of Ireland's oldest street festivals, held every August. Close to a great choice of lovely sandy beaches and a golfer's paradise, with an abundance of golf courses in the area. North East to the heart of the Kingdom of Kerry, between the MacGillycuddy Reeks and the Dingle Peninsula, is Milltown. A quiet town where you may experience the old world, with clattering clip clop of horses' hooves as they come and go from the local busy riding stables. From Killorglin along the coast to the West is the lovely village of Glenbeigh, offering a wealth of traditional inns and good restaurants, whilst providing easy access to the Blue Flag beach at Rossbeigh Strand, a sandy beach stretching over 4 miles, renowned for its safe swimming, adventure sports and paragliding. The delightful town of Killarney is also within easy reach, offering a selection of good shops, restaurants, bars and theatres.
