This rental was genuine quality. Caroline (the owner) has obviously invested heavily and personally in this holiday home with not only high quality furniture and fittings but also a beautiful and creative welcoming and spacious holiday home to relax in. It's just far enough from Waterville (10 mins drive) to feel peacefully isolated. A small beach is 5 minutes walk away and the views are wonderful. We weren't short of finding places to explore nearby in a week although you might struggle without a car. Both Caroline and the local cleaner/welcomer were pro-actively helpful and friendly. We wholeheartedly recommend this cottage for anyone wanting to stay in this part of Ireland. "Excellent" is not a default tripadvisor rating for us, but in this case accurately sums up our experience.
We stayed in Caroline’s Cottage (Creel Cottage) for a week in August. The Cottage is perfectly located for exploring The Ring of Kerry. Caroline is lovely, her welcome and the Cottage surpassed our expectations. The Cottage is highly appointed with close attention to detail; everything we needed was there and it was a joy to come back to at the end of an exploratory day. With three double bedrooms, sitting room, sunroom and two bathrooms, there was plenty of luxurious space for everyone. We would highly recommend Creel Cottage as a place to stay, and hope to return ourselves.
This cottage has fabulous views from every room,is beautifully furnished with a great kitchen and utility for storing fishing gear and golf clubs. Located within the Ring Of Kerry it's within easy reach of beautiful beaches and the Lakes and Golf Courses!
There are some great restaurants in Waterville and would highly recommend the Smugglers Inn near Waterville Golf Club.
Can't recommend this place highly enough - a great week had by all the family!
This is a beautifully-finished, very comfortable house, located in a quiet lane which runs along the edge of the sea, close to Waterville on the ring of Kerry. The property itself has a very homely feel and has been furnished to a very high standard, with a well-equipped kitchen and comfortable lounge. Outside, there is a large garden with amazing sea views, and plenty of room to play football, have a BBQ or just sit and look out to sea.
Just down the lane are some steps down to a small but secluded beach where we built a camp-fire and watched the sun set. There was noone else around. Further along the lane, we saw what was apparently Charlie Chaplin's old house, beyond which we walked for a couple of hours over a headland from where we could look out over the next bay. This is truly a beautiful part of Ireland, quiet without being isolated, but with a bit of a buzz in the local town, where there are some decent restaraunts and a few shops.
This property is definitely a step-up from other cottages we have rented in Ireland, and clearly a lot of time, money and effort has been put into it. Would definitely recommend it and will also be returning soon.
The house is absolutely fabulous!
THE PHOTOS DON’T DO IT JUSTICE!
We had such an amazing, relaxing stay and our kids didn’t want to leave.
We all loved it❤️
The location is stunning - with breathtaking views from every corner of the house.
Every detail has been thought of to make sure you feel like it is a home from home.
Waterville is only a few minutes away with lots of great restaurants, shops and bars.
The beach is on your doorstep.
Lots of great walks, should you feel inclined.
The house is the diamond in the Ring of Kerry!
We can’t wait to return next year
