    “The location was as we wanted.”

    Close to Killarney and adjoining areas without being to close to the hustle and bustle. Access to areas of interest was good. The house was well stocked and equipped and was spacious and comfortable. Some observations: 1) If the hedgerow across the road in the front of the house had been trimmed, the full gorgeous beautiful view of the lake could have been admired from the house. 2) The sliding door from the conservatory out couldn’t be locked by us properly. Clear instructions as to how to do ...

    Close to Killarney and adjoining areas without being to close to the hustle and bustle. Access to areas of interest was good. The house was well stocked and equipped and was spacious and comfortable. Some observations: 1) If the hedgerow across the road in the front of the house had been trimmed, the full gorgeous beautiful view of the lake could have been admired from the house. 2) The sliding door from the conservatory out couldn’t be locked by us properly. Clear instructions as to how to do this would be useful and if faulty needs to be fixed for security purposes. 3) The showers need to be more effective i.e. all showers possible to be used simultaneously without compromising the power and the risk of the two power shower simultaneous use downstairs having a risk of tripping it’s fuse(did not happen during our stay). Overall we were very satisfied with the property and would highly recommend it to people thinking of exploring Kerry’s picturesque areas basing themselves near the central town of Killarney.
