“Gorgeous and tranquil setting was perfect place to recharge”
Reviewed 4 August 2010

My husband and I spent two nights at Tahilla Cove on our anniversary trip. Our favorite part of our stay at Tahilla Cove was just enjoying the setting. After a day of sightseeing (and driving), we were more than happy to just enjoy the views from their small pub overlooking the cove and not have to drive. We would have a nice lunch out and both nights we opted to just have supper (soup or salad) at the pub and then walk around the property to take in the sunset (there is a very short trail). Nothing could be more relaxing! I thought about swimming from the dock - perhaps next trip.

The hosts, James and Deidre, were both very gracious and gave us advice on what to see. The staff was always helpful.

Our room was large, beautiful, and extremely comfortable with a stunning view from the balcony. The property is quiet and we slept very well. Breakfast was excellent (again with a beautiful view). We also enjoyed meeting other guests - the atmosphere is low key but friendly.

Tahilla Cove is the kind of place I wish I could have stayed much longer - I would return in a heartbeat!

Stayed just for one night and immediately fell in love with the place. Everything about it, the owners ,the breakfast, the absolute silence and the whole ambience of the place left us refreshed at the end of our break in co.Kerry. A very comfortable lived in home with so much reading material to enjoy.

This is indeed a wonderful place. The rooms are extremely cosy, convenient and have a great atmosphere about them. James and Deirdre are very kind and helpful people, they will do anything to make your stay even better with a lot of good advice on things to do in the area. The public areas like the drawing room and the TV-lounge are also very welcoming and atmospheric places and they serve excellent suppers and drinks in the bar! We would most definitely recommend this place to anyone, whether you want to explore the area or just stay around the house, Tahilla Cove truly feels like paradise.

My husband and I just returned from a trip around Ireland for our anniversary and my birthday. Tahilla Cove was a wonderful base camp for many of our exploration days. The hosts couldn't have been more helpful and fun, the breakfasts were scrumptious, and sunsets viewed from the point at the end of the on-site (super short) hiking trail were unforgettable.

We only stopped for a cup of tea and some biscuits, but quickly realized we should have booked all our nights here. The owner was wonderful, and everything about this Country House and the setting made us want to stay. It may be one the the most beautiful spots on earth. We stayed at three wonderful inns on our trip, but still talk about the one we only stopped for tea. We hope to return to the West and we will book here.

Tahilla Cove was the perfect place for a stop along the Ring of Kerry, just off the beaten path, but well within the hub-bub of all things that a traveler wants to see in SW Ireland. The Waterhouse family was incredibly nice and very accomodating. The on-site pub really allowed us to relax and have a pint or three without having to drive someplace and worry about getting back safely. The breakfast in the morning was awesome.

The waterfront location was ideal for walking, wildlife viewing, and relaxing. Can't wait to go back during the summer just to enjoy the fishing,the food and the beer. I highly recommend this place to anyone wanting to experience the Irish countryside with a local flair. Costs was just a little more than a hotel room but it was well worth it!

We did not meet the whole family as we arrived at the end of the season and they were busy elsewhere. However, we did meet James who warmly welcomed us into his home, rather than just a house.
As well as the cosy house on a rainy evening, and the beauty of the surroundings on a sun kissed morning, James knocks up a great breakfast, and was most helpful in providing walking and driving information, enabling us to experience hidden treasures of Kerry that I am sure we would have otherwise missed out on.
Many thanks for your hospitality. You might be pleased to know that our son now sports a Munster rugby shirt !
