“very friendly host and a great location”
Reviewed 23 May 2013 for a stay in April 2013

Thank you Gail,
For making our trip to Ireland such a wonderful experience. We really enjoyed our time at your house.
The house was in perfect condition and everything you needed was provided.
We have never been in a holiday home which was better equipped.
We will definitely try to come back one day and will recommend your house and the beautiful area of Kenmare.

“Another perfect stay at Millfield House.”
Reviewed 27 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

people found this review helpful

We had another perfect experience at Millfield House. From the warm Irish welcome from owner Gail to the neat-as-a-pin house, this self catering has it all. It was our second stay at Millfield and won't be our last. The location is perfect for walking to Kenmare town or exploring the Ring of Kerry. When the gale force winds were lashing the windows we stayed warm and cozy by the fire and watched our favorite programs on the large flat screen TV. And when the weather cleared, as it always does, we explored the local villages. The famed Irish welcome is alive and well at Millfield house. Thank you, Gail, for a wonderful vacation experience!

We got a great welcome from Gail.
The holiday home is bright, spacious and has all the facilities you could wish for.
Even in a chilly week in november the house was warm and very comfortable.
Location a short stroll from Kenmare town.
We're already looking forard to going back next year!

“Best Holiday Rental I have stayed in”
Reviewed 18 February 2013 for a stay in February 2013

people found this review helpful

I have stayed in over twenty holiday rentals and this has been my best experience. From the initial contact with Gail to the final day of the rental..the experience was top notch. The place was immaculate, and just as indicated in the letting. Gail welcomed all of us with open arms after a long day on the road. She gave us a great tour of the place and talked to us about the entire area. Kenmare is a very hospitable and warm city and the letting is a 10 minute walk into town. Great place to visit the Ring of Beara, the Ring of Kerry and Killarney. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the bathrooms modern and spotless. The kitchen has every utensil needed and the appliances were of high standard. The best holiday experience yet. Well done Gail!!

“A beautiful house in a great little town!”

This is a fantastic bargain, even for two people! Gail is a very welcoming host and keeps a beautiful and modern house that we would love to visit again and share with more family. It is very convenient to Kenmare, a lovely little town that attracts plenty of tourists but feels like you'd want to be a 'local' there. Welcoming goodies and a stock of firewood were well appreciated and everything was exactly as pictured. Highly recommended!

Myself, my husband & 20 month old son are just back from a weeks stay in Millfield & honestly we're already trying to schedule my husbands holidays for next year in the hope that we can go back for another stay. As anyone travelling with a 20 month old will know, you need to pack everything but the kitchen sink with you but this was not the case with Gails wonderful holiday home. It literally has EVERYTHING you could want or need!! The house itself is enough to rave about, cleanliness,spaciousness, decor to such a quality that you couldn't choose better yourself. We just loved the house. The area is so peaceful too so you can relax & unwind in the evenings after long days exploring the sights of Kenmare & what the extended region has offer. Can't recommend the place enough. Massive thanks to Gail, in particular for all those little extras like the DVDs, jigsaws my son had great enjoyment with.
