“Lovely House, Lovely Location”

people found this review helpful

We found this to be a great house , newly decorated and furnished. It is situated on a quiet estate about 10 mins walk ( some of I unpaved and unlit) to the centre of Kenmare. The house had all the necessary bits and bats you would expect. Kenmare is a great base for the Ring of Kerry and Beara and has a fantastic choice of pubs and restaurants. Can't wait to return.

“Perfect stay”
Reviewed 27 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The house was even nicer than we expected. The location 2 minutes outside of Kenmare (by car) was ideal. We toyed with the idea of booking a more remote cottage but we were glad we stayed here, as we only had for nights in the area (but even if we stayed longer I would have liked the location). The setting of the cottage was more beautiful than the photos show!

The owners are lovely and so accommodating.

The house has everything you need.

We made a great choice and our only regret is that we did not have enough time here! Kenmare is the perfect base for touring,

“Excellent central base”
Reviewed 23 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Sheen Woods is an extremely peaceful and well-kept small development within an easy 10 minute walk from Kenmare which is small but packed with lovely places to eat. The house had absolutely everything we needed for the week and Rose and Mary had provided extras such as hot water bottles, an umbrella, picnic sets and even high-visibility vests for walking at night! They have also taken on board previous comments and the house now has bathmats and drying screens. It should also be noted that the outside patio set in the picture has been replaced with a more comfortable plastic high-backed set. Due to our flight time we had no choice but to arrive late at night but this was no problem for Mary who had also thoughtfully bought in some bread, cheese, butter and milk for our breakfast the next day - tasty and very much appreciated. We dealt with Rose on our departure and she was equally lovely and we would thank them both for a (rainy) but thoroughly enjoyable week.
