    “The owner called us a couple of days prior our arrival to let us know where the key to the house was kept and also advised that the standard check in at 3 pm is now delayed by one hour due to Covid 19.”

    Meaning extra time for cleaning is required. When we arrived we were stunned by the view, it seemed this was exactly what we could expect for €730 for 4 nights. Our excitement was quickly replaced by disappointment the moment we entered the house. The table and kitchen counter was still dirty from previous guests, same with floors and couch which was covered with a blanket full of crumbs. Bits of food in dishwasher and mould in the fridge.

    Meaning extra time for cleaning is required. When we arrived we were stunned by the view, it seemed this was exactly what we could expect for €730 for 4 nights. Our excitement was quickly replaced by disappointment the moment we entered the house. The table and kitchen counter was still dirty from previous guests, same with floors and couch which was covered with a blanket full of crumbs. Bits of food in dishwasher and mould in the fridge. I spend first hour cleaning the kitchen so we could use it. The worst part however is the terrible smell coming out of the upstairs bathroom which was out of service. I have contacted the owner about this issue and his reply was that a cleaner (?) had called a plumber the day before our arrival because there was a drip from the shower and a bad smell and that he was sorry that the smell has returned a day later after the plumber was there. Absolutely nothing has been done about it. The smell was so bad and it was coming into the whole house even through closed door and extractor fan being turned on for the whole time, we kept all windows opened during the day but nights sleeping in this terrible smell were dreadful. As mentioned on the other side the views were amazing and we loved the fire place in both living rooms. I would not return or reccommend this cottage to anyone following our experience. Not worth the money we paid whatsoever.

About the location

KENMARE, COUNTY KERRY

Glengarriff 19 miles; Killarney 25 miles.

A picturesque town situated on the stunning Bay of Kenmare, overlooking the gleaming Atlantic Ocean. Beautiful beaches, wildlife and lovely scenery abound here. The coastline is rugged with sandy beaches close by, while pebble beaches surround the bay itself. Kenmare is an interesting town, full of character and colour, with long winding streets setting the scene for farmers' markets, artists' galleries, lovely little boutiques and some of the best restaurants in Ireland! The town is also situated on the Ring of Kerry and Wild Atlantic Way. The famous town of Killarney has an abundance of attractions, pubs, festivals and its National Park is about 35 minutes’ drive away, and though there is much to see and do here, the pace of life is still leisurely and unhurried. With the Beara and Dingle Peninsulas nearby and the Ring of Kerry and Wild Atlantic Way to explore, makes this an ideal base for exploring Kerry to Cork. This great location is not to be missed!
