Courtyard Irish Holiday Cottages
Reviewed 19 July 2014

Stayed at the courtyard cottages last year for a few days and I couldnt have been happier with the place. Myra is just brilliant, so friendly and advising us on places to visit during our stay. The cottages where so lovely, beautifully kept, warm and welcoming. A home from home in fact I could of stayed there it was so nice. The little touches that Myra makes from the candles lighting to the scones, wine and chocolates on arrival and the freshly cut flowers, just add that little extra special touch to our stay. Hope to be back there in the future.

My partner and I stayed here in April, and had a wonderful time. Myra is absolutely lovely; so friendly and helpful. We stayed in the one bedroom apartment and it was beautiful, completely spotless. There's a log fire which is just wonderful! There were really thoughtful little things there, such as wine and scones on arrival. The place itself is ideally located for seeing the beautiful Irish countryside, including the Ring of Kerry, Dingle and Inch Beach. I couldn't recommend this more; we will definitely be returning.

Room Tip: The one bed is great for a couple, and excellent value for money.

Stayed here for a week during our wedding. Beautiful, spacious loft apartment with everything we needed. Great value too. Myra could not be more welcoming or helpful, and gave us champagne, roses, chocolates and home made bread.

Room Tip: The one bedroom "gallery" apartment is huge!

A group of approximately 12 hill walkers stayed in 4 of the cottages last (Paddy's) weekend. We received a very warm and welcoming arrival from Myra & she'd also left a bottle of wine, brown bread, scones and chocolates in each of the houses. She lit open fires for anyone who'd given her an estimate of their arrival time. There was firewood, kindling and fire lighters in each house and last but not least, there were flowers everywhere. Beautiful lilies & tulips in gorgeous vases adorned each house. I would highly recommend these cottages and hope to return on another walking weekend. Next time I'll be entirely self sufficient and make use of the kitchen and cooking facilities and I won't venture out after a tiring hike. It's ideal if you want to get away from it all but if you want to be close to the action it is a little remote and cars/taxis are necessary to get to Tralee, which is approx 3 miles away. (The nearest village, Blennerville is 0.8 miles.)

The only small negative was the electric shower in my room - the water was tepid.

Stayed at The Courtyard over Christmas. It was such a wonderful holiday. Myra made us so welcome with wine, choclates, mince pies and scones. She also had the wood burning stove lit for our arrival so that within minutes we felt as if we were at home. The decor of the American style loft apartment was fantastic with perfect attention to detail including fresh roses in displays around the apartment and the christmas tree sparkling and with special home crafted decorations. The weather was really awful but we were cosy and warm in the apartment and didnt want for anything. I cannot recommend highly enough and will be back as soon as possible. The Courtyard is about five minutes drive from Tralee so although you are in a rural setting within minutes you are able to visit Tralee or tour around Kerry. There is a petrol station in the village that sells everything you need from wood and briquettes for the fire to groceries and it even sold LPG for our car. Myra was extremely welcoming and made us feel special. One of the best Christmas holidays we have ever had.

Room Tip: All the apartments are decorated in a different style so it makes everything more interesting.

Excellent Stay over Christmas Period - Dec 2013

Myra couldn't have done enough for us and having the place decorated with Christmas Tree and Fire going with a bottle of wine waiting on arrival was a special touch to make our break .

Would definitely recommend as a base for travelling throughout Kerry

My family and I have stayed at many places in the Tralee area as my parents have lived here for nearly 20 years. This is the most beautiful cottage we have stayed in and Myra could not have been more welcoming or helpful. We stayed at Christmas and the cottage was decorated better than my own home with a real tree. The fire and candles were lit when we arrived and there was a basket of wine, chocolates and mince pies. The cottage was very spacious and decorated in a beautiful, french/country/vintage style. Our children are 3 and 7 and also loved the cottage and we found it very practical with the courtyard outside for them to have a run around.

I would definitely stay again and my sister who visited the cottage was also very impressed and thought she would book for next trip.
