We spent the week from 13. – 20. May as 2nd station of our Ireland trip in Millfield House which is about 1.5 km outside the center of Kenmare. Although with 3 bed- and 2 bathrooms it was actually too large for us, being only 2 persons, we would choose it again in any case. Without describing any detail, absolutely nothing was missed. Bedrooms and livingroom are comfortably furnished, kitchen is very spacious with nothing lacking. Big TV and free Wi-Fi.
Gail turned out to be a extraordinarily nice and friendly hostess who had so many welcome gifts (wine, cake, bread, pralines) for us that we could not eat them all.
So as a result: first choice again, if coming back to Kenmare.
It is no co-incidence that virtually every review written about Millfield mentions the owner, Gail. She is outstanding - cheerful, friendly and full of enthusiasm. She gave us a comprehensive introduction to her property of which she is rightly very proud and lots of information re the surrounding area. The house is extremely spacious, very comfortable and is equipped with everything you could possibly need - I have rarely seen so much kitchen equipment. She also leaves the property stacked with 'goodies' - bread, cake, sugar, tea, coffee.......even a box of chocolates!!
The surrounding countryside is truly stunning and we were so fortunate to have a week of 'wall to wall' sunshine to see it at its best.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this property. Thank you Gail for everything.
Fantastic welcome, We've never seen anything like it.
Gail has been so nice explaining everything at our arrival as well as the welcome pack after our very long journey coming from France.
Anything you need, Gail's house has it. We spent very a good holiday touring around, too short thought. This place is absolutely wonderful and relaxing.
We will be back as we haven't seen all of Kerry.Advice : If it is sunny in the morning, just go and enjoy the day. We have been very lucky with the weather, it has been nice and warm and we even got colours in April. Thank you so much Gail for your very nice welcome, we really felt home in your house.

Firstly, you won't find a more kind, generous and enthusiastic owner than Gail. She left an incredible number of food items, and she even had the kettle on, and a tea tray set out for our arrival. Gail responded quickly to our inquires and was very communicative. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking and the entire house is spotlessly clean. Gail also provides a lot of maps, books and travel materials for the area. The WiFi is very reliable. The location is excellent and the town of Kenmare has everything one could ever need for self-catering. I highly recommend this vacation rental.
Upon arriving at Millfield House, Gail greeted us first class! She is a very friendly person and gave us a detailed tour of the premises. A wonderful welcome package was awaiting us plus the home was decorated for Chistmas as we were spending the holidays here...a very nice touch indeed!
The location of Millfield House is excellent! The town of Kenmare is approximately a 2 minute drive away or approximately a 10-12 minute walk. Ring of Kerry, Ring of Berra, Dingle, Kinsale and Cork are all short drives as well.
Millfield House has every possible amenity that you require for a wonderful stay...you will certainly not be disappointed!
If you're looking for a perfect home away from home in County Kerry...this is the place to be!
Thanks again Gail! We will certainly be back!
