We stayed for one week and we can honestly say this beautiful house is a perfect home from home. We received the warmest welcome from Laura's parents who very thoughtfully left scones, pizza and milk. This was greatly appreciated after our long journey. Everything you could possibly need is in the house. There are a good range of maps and information leaflets to help you explore the area. The house is well maintained, spotlessly clean and so comfortable. We had our two girls with us,10 and 8 years, they loved sharing a room. The bedrooms have plenty of storage space and very comfy beds. The bathrooms are clean with a good supply of towels and even face clothes.
We were able to explore all round the Ring of Kerry and the Dingle Peninsula. Such beautiful scenery, it is truly a breathe taking part of the world. We would thoroughly recommend staying at Knockatinna you will have a fabulous holiday.
Thank you Laura and family for making our stay so lovely.
We stayed for 10 days in July - had an amazing vacation. Just my husband and I - we rented a car and used the house a home base to explore far and wide. Also took some great walks just out the front door of the house. It was beautiful and the house was perfect. Would love to go back again!!!
Our family used Knockatinna as a base for exploring Kerry over the course of several days. It was perfect. The home is lovely and well maintained. It gave us a place to prepare our own meals and stretch out each evening. The rooms (one with a large bed and the other with two twins) had plenty of space to unpack and the beds were comfy. The kitchen/dining space was huge and well equipped. Two bathrooms were a bonus with teenagers amongst us. Most importantly the family room provided plenty of space to spread out each night for reading (the owner has an extensive library) and games.
For us, it was just about a perfect location to explore Kerry, including Portmagee, Skellig Michael, Rossbeigh Beach/Strand, Glenbeigh, and Killarney National Park. However, make sure you leave time to unwind at the house. The views from the home of the Kerry mountains are spectacular. There is a bench outside to settle and enjoy it all. Many hikes can also be taken from the house, although sadly we didn't plan enough time at Knockatinna.
We recommend the accommodation without reservation, but any guest, should know they are staying in the countryside. It is lovely, but you won't be walking to a pub for dinner. Also, you will be driving down some narrow, Irish one-lane roads.
Very comfortable, well equipped family house in quiet location but near lovely local beaches, great walking country, Kerry Ring and tourist attractions. Made to feel very welcome by owner's parents John and Kathleen. Glenbeigh with local shops, eateries 3 miles away. Lovely area and great place to be based to explore.
We were welcomed by Laura's parents at our arrival at the cottage. It felt good immediately. A quick tour of the property and a hospitality treat of Kateleen's perfect Irish Coffee followed days later. The house was very comfortable. We will cherish our stay in Rossbeigh and the beauty of the Kerry region.
