“Surpassed all expectations”
Reviewed 12 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This is a great place to stay. The cottage is equipped with everything you would need. The owners are incredibly helpful and are on hand as they run the shop nearby. We stayed for a week and would happily have added another week on. Plenty to do and see. A quiet spot ideally situated for exploring this wonderful part of Ireland.

“We still feel the glow from the cosy cottage with its wood burning stove and warmth of the Irish people!”
Reviewed 23 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We enjoyed the tranquility of the Old Pub Cottage with its views of the mountains. As it was the beginning of April the ewes with their lambs and warm weather was a welcome surprise. Eileen and Robert provided us with exceptional hospitality. On our arrival a pot of hot tea, flower displays, and even a box of chocolates was waiting for us (on the four poster bed).
Eileen kindly recommended many places of local interest. One of these was Dromquinna Stables from where we trekked into the mountains and through the sea, on our 35th wedding anniversary.
Attention to detail has certainly been paid to all of the amenities that we could wish for in the cottage. We were able to walk to the local shop and a trip in the car to Kenmare, gave us the provisions to self-cater, although we did eat at several pubs and restaurants in the area during our stay.
We still feel the glow from the cosy cottage with its wood burning stove and warmth of the Irish people!

“Beautiful place!”
Reviewed 22 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We loved our stay in Old Pub Cottage, Lauragh, Co. Kerry. We went to get away from it all and relax in the cottage. The cottage has everything you would need and we felt so at home. We had a warm welcome from Eileen & Robert and a pot of tea waiting for us! We found it difficult to find a place that was dog-friendly and our wee Jack Russell, Rufus, loved the cottage and the scenic walks around Kenmare and the Ring of Beara. Kenmare is one of the nicest villages we have ever visited and enjoyed many lunches in Jam - which bake the nicest choc cookies ever!!

Old Pub Cottage was excellent value for money and we will definitely be back :)

What a greeting. Fire blazing,tea made in the pot, hamper of fruit and biscuits.Beds beautifully made and decorated along with welcome card and gift. I have stayed in many 5* Hotels that would benefit from lessons from Eileen!! Encyclopedic knowledge of the area, sights and places to eat.
Fabulous area, I have been to the Ring of Kerry previously ( easily reachable from cottage) but Beare rivals it for sure.
Lovely stay, well worth a visit
