“Great house for a great getaway”

Went there for New Years with a group of friends, great location for a quiet break but not far away from bigger more lively towns. Perfect house for a large group with 8 beds spread across 4 bedrooms. Great value and would happily stay here again!

Upon arrival keys were on in the door and house was empty, in immaculate condition with everything we needed, the landlord was incredibly friendly and when we asked to stay another night in short notice there was no problem would have no hesitation going back.

“A home away from home!!”
Reviewed 16 April 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Have been staying in Sunset Cottage at least twice a year since 2007 and from our very first visit we knew this place was special. Ballinskelligs is a beautiful place where a warm welcome and friendly greeting awaits you wherever you go. The house itself is equipped with everything you could need for your stay. A large sitting/dining room with large table with seating for up to 10 people. The kitchen is well equipped and there is a large downstairs bathroom with fab jacuzzi bath.There are 3 good sized bedrooms downstairs. Upstairs there is the master bedroom with ensuite shower room and there is a second sitting room with large l-shaped sofa and tv, perfect if there are older children staying. The house has views to die for and is in an unrivalled location, a stones throw from Ballinskelligs pier where you can take a boat to visit the Skellig Islands. The fabulous blue flag beach is a ten minute walk from the house. There is plenty of things to do on your doorstep and the owners have provided information on all there is to see and do to help you plan your stay.
The owners of the house are extremely welcoming and friendly. Each time we visit it gets harder to leave and I count the days until we can visit this little piece of heaven again.

“Astrophotographers dream! (Fuschia Cottage)”
Reviewed 13 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

person found this review helpful

We actually stayed at fuschia cottage which is up the road from this house. Dessy Cronin was also the landlord and he couldn't be nicer or more helpful! We had farm fresh eggs and a bottle of red wine waiting for us on arrival(a lovely touch) and Des recommended some great hikes ( Bolus head loop walk) and local attractions. The house was spacious and we had 2 children and 2 dogs with us( one an Irish wolfhound) . The beautiful Ballinskelligs beach was a 2 minute walk down the road . I am keen on astrophotography and the stars at night are spectacular as Ballinskelligs is located in the Kerry dark reserve area. The local people are so friendly and welcoming I cannot wait to return again !
