“Great family home”
Reviewed 12 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Our stay at Glenview Cottage was superb! John greeted us when we arrived and showed us around the property even though we were a few hours late. The rooms were spacious, and bathrooms were great with lots of hot water. I was worried that it was going to be too far from town, but the drive was only 5 minutes to the city center and there was no issues with traffic or getting to and from the cottage. The views from the cottage are gorgeous and we even had a deer crossing the property one morning. John was also very accommodating when I asked to extend my stay at the last minute, he responded to all my emails the same day. I would absolutely stay here again and recommend anyone to take a few days in Killarney at this beautiful cottage.

“Spacious, cozy home away from home”
Reviewed 8 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We went there with our two boys aged 6 and 12 and we found a comfy, cozy home base in the South-West of Ireland. Perfectly located if you would like to explore Killarney and its surroundings as well as the wider Kerry and Cork regions. The cottage is beautiful, quite comfortable, well-kept, spacious, and is equipped with everything one could hope for. We had a wonderful stay there. The owners live next door, they were very friendly and helpful in every way. Excellent experience for the whole family.

“Irish dream come true...”
Reviewed 4 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We drove up a shady country lane & were met by this beautiful, quaint Irish cottage. Rolling green hills were our backyard & we could have sat for hours looking out the window. John was a gracious host and the cottage was clean & inviting. The pictures do not do it justice! The home was spacious and close to many beautiful locations. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer.

“Lovely, comfortable, convenient.”
Reviewed 18 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The cottage was just right for our family of six, with two double beds and two twin sized beds. Three full bathrooms, too! All appliances you would need for a long stay, including a large refrigerator,a dishwasher, and a clothes washer/dryer. Free wi-fi was a plus. Everything was just perfect! Mr. O'Mahoney was helpful and knowledgeable about the area. We had a very nice visit and wish we had stayed for a couple of weeks!

“Idyllic setting, great house and convenient to Killarney”
Reviewed 1 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Three generations were on this trip and agreed this was an ideal house for us. The location was both beautiful and convenient to Killarney. With three bedrooms and baths, kitchen, dining and sitting rooms, we had plenty of room to spread out. Our hosts were personable and helpful, the house had a book of where to go, eat, etc.
