“Charming Cottage in Kerry”
Reviewed 20 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

The cottage was well furnished, albeit without matching pot/pan lids and sharp kitchen knives that I find many other holiday rentals also lack. The cottage is situated very close to main walking routes, which we utilized often and with much enjoyment. It was just far enough out of Sneem and Kenmare to provide a sense of seclusion, but close enough to make shopping, pubs, and restaurants convenient. Very clean and well kept place. Would stay here again.

“Lovely escape in County Kerry”

We loved our time at Winnie's Cottage. My husband, daughter and I stayed in the cottage in October. It was very clean, well equipt, tastefully decorated and very comfortable. The owner provides you with a thoughtful welcome package that oultines the local activities and restaurants. They also provide you with bread, eggs, and milk upon arrival, which is a lovely touch.

Our only concern was with the shower in the second bathroom upstairs. There is no pressure and it is too hot; but we were assured that it is currently being fixed. Other than that, everything was truly memorable. We highly recommend it and hope to be back soon!

“Perfect!”

I took my girlfriend to Winnie’s for a mini-break and it was so relaxing, she absolutely adored it. Even though it was winter the cottage seemed really warm and inviting. There were little details everywhere that made it more like a home than a holiday let – from candles and flowers to the wood burning stove and welcome pack. You could settle in right away!

We went for a lazy couple of days and really enjoyed the quiet location and all the walks that were nearby. Just down the road was the Parknasilla Hotel and Spa, which was great for a glass of wine after a walk in the country or a wander along the coast and all the inlets. It really was beautiful and the perfect way to relax and unwind.

The cottage itself has everything you need and with the village of Sneem down the down, you can easily get groceries of go out for dinner or to the pub. There are plenty of towns to visit and the Cottage provides details of activities and places to go.

Kerry is a beautiful part of the country and we barely scratched the surface, both in terms of what you can do and where you can go. As I said – a lazy couple of days! We took the old road to Kilarney across the mountains, which although involves some very tight bends was definitely worth it for the views.

It really was a great few days. A picturesque location and a beautifully presented house. I cannot recommend it enough!

“Wonderful cottage, excellent location”

We spent 3 lovely nights at Winnies Cottage. The location was excellent for exploring the Ring of Kerry. We stayed as a family of 5 but you could easily have two families or up to 3 couples. There are three large bedrooms, one with a queen and an ensuite, one with a queen and a single and one with 2 single. There is a seperate bathroom with tub and another toilet down stairs. The kitchen is well stocked for selfcatering and has beautiful crystal wine glasses. A real bonus. The lounge is very comfortable and the garden lovely for children to play. Parknasilla has a lovely hotel for dinner if you want something special, they also have a fairy trail walk which was magical for our children. Winnies cottage was a wonderful place to stay.

My husband and I recently spent an amazing few days in this gorgeous cottage with his parents and grand parents. It is an ideal location for young and old alike within easy reach of both Kenmare and Sneem. The cottage itself is refurbished to the highest standards but still retains all the charm of a traditional Irish cottage. From the wood burning stove to the beautifully appointed bedrooms, Winnies Cottage is truly a delightful home away from home in the most wonderful location. We found loads to do in the surrounding areas and at night enjoyed some excellent food and fun in O'Sheas bar in Sneem. Our group was aged from 30 to 85 and we all had a fantastic time between golfing and enjoying the nearby spa, walking and exploring Kenmare. This was our second trip to Winnies Cottage and we can't wait to go again. I would highly reccommend Winnies Cottage to families or groups of friends or anyone looking to explore this gorgeous part of Ireland.
