“Amazing propety and location”

If you are looking for an ideal location in County Kerry, this property should be seriously considered. Colette (the owner) is warm, hospitable, accommodating and very friendly. She has loads of information concerning Ireland and, more specifically, the area in which you would be staying. Her cottage is immaculate. Very comfortable, charming and filled with her personal keep sakes. So nicely decorated and very pleasing to the eye. We have stayed in many such cottages but by far this is the best we have encountered. And who say's October is out of season? Not our experience! The weather was great. We loved our stay at the Hill Top Cottage. Would go back tomorrow if we could.

Hilltop Cottage is a gem. It is beautifully furnished and very comfortable, and well-equipped. It has an attractive seating area outside. The cottage has views from all the front windows of sea and mountains. It is the nicest place we have stayed in. Colette, the owner could not have been more friendly and informative. The cottage is quiet and remote, but there are beautiful gardens, walks, stone circles and beaches nearby. We are planning our second trip.

“The ultimate picturesque Irish cottage with stunning views!”
Reviewed 9 September 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We chose Hilltop cottage as our first family holiday. We had our 10 month old son with us. We were greeted warmly by Colette and were showed around her beautiful cottage. It was perfect, better than what we were expecting and our son loved to crawl around the floor downstairs and watch Colette's dogs daily as they ran around outside and came to say hello! The view from the cottage is fantastic and the walk around the area was lovely. We visited Kenmare a few times which was less than half an hour in the car and Killarney which was just about an hour. Colette suggested a beautiful place to cycle by a lake and mountains and we went there twice. At night we lit the stove and the cottage was very cosy. The cottage only has one open planned room upstairs and for our son this was okay as he sleeps well but may not suit other families with a baby who wakes easily, but we knew this when booking. Colette kindly gave us eggs from her own hens and homemade jam she had made herself. These little gestures were much appreciated. The history of the cottage is amazing, Colette has put so much love into fixing it up over the years and there is a scrap book with pictures laid out for guests to read. We would highly recommend Hilltop cottage to those seeking a relaxing holiday in a tranquil setting, especially couples! We've told all our friends about it!
