Hello everyone,
Not many places made me to remember, but this one for sure did.
Firs biggest thank you our host Myra. Since first step in our cottage, I got eye on clean house and little details nicely organised. Impressive welcome with box of assorted chocolates and nice bottle of red wine. It made me feel really welcomed. I was staying with my boys for few nights, and all I can say it's really place for persons who likes to enjoy them time away from home.
Of course place not in centre of town, but it's worth to try.
Biggest regards and thanks for this experience.

The house was a spacious open plan one bed, first floor (2nd if you're from the US) of a stable conversion, with bathroom and lobby downstairs on the ground floor.

Very light airy feel to the place with a nice kitchen, dining area, living area with TV, sofas and a wood burning fire and a very large sleeping area with plenty of space around the bed. Sleeping area although also open plan was partly separated from the living area by the internal chimney stack.

Tastefully decorated throughout with minimalist white walls and wooden floors and a large wooden dining table and chairs. The wood stove was really cosy to sit in front of on cooler nights, all wood provided, ready chopped. Kitchen had a dishwasher, large fridge electric cooker and oven.

There were tennis courts which were free to use, and a ping-pong table in the garden. Free off road parking also provided. The owner, Myra, was very helpful and let us use ordinance survey maps (we went hiking) she also provided pony rides for the children of other families staying at the cottages which was very popular. The place generally felt very relaxed, quiet and peaceful.

This was a great base from which to explore the local area. Tralee has plenty of supermarkets where you can by food, Killarney, The dingle peninsular, and ring of Kerry are all close by car. Basket island was well worth a visit as was Bray head on Valentia island. We also went to see Irish dancing at Celtic Steps (in Killarney - Ross race course) which was a very entertaining show indeed.

This is our fifth stay at the Courtyard Cottages. Myra Daly, the proprietor, makes us feel like family. The cottages are very well equipped and very comfortable. When coming to Ireland we would not think of staying anywhere else. It is convienent to everything the Southwest of Ireland has to offer..

I traveled Europe for the past eight months with my two daughters. In all of our travels, all of the hundreds of places we stayed, this was by far our favorite! We returned over and over. The pictures do not do this place justice. Each of the cottages (we stayed in 5 out of 6) was cozy, spotless, and felt like home. Each one was our favorite! Myra is the most welcoming woman, with flowers in the rooms, scones, chocolate, and a fireplace ready for you. The cottages are all equipped with full kitchens.

One of the great things about Courtyard Cottages is the location. It feels like you are out in the country with no noise to keep you awake, but it's only a couple of km to town. Walking distance. And you are on the path to Dingle within moments of leaving "home". It took us 30 minutes to drive to Dingle, 20 minutes to Killarney, 3 hours to Dublin, 90 min to Cork City. The drive to the Cliffs of Moher is beautiful. This is such a central location and such a fantastic price!

Room Tip: You cannot go wrong!! All rooms are comfortable!

Stayed here for 4 nights in June 2015. Upon arrival we were greeted with a lovely welcome basket which included freshly baked scones and a bottom me of wine. Our cottage was perfect for us and we had lots of room. Staying was myself my husband, 16 year old daughter and her best friend and our 11 year old daughter. During the day we could stroll around the grounds of the cottages and play some tennis in the back garden. The courtyard is the perfect base for anyone who's looking to see Kerry and all its glory. We did so much while we were there and found these cottages perfect for our little break away.
