Our total experience with this property from booking to check-out was wonderful. The house is modern, comfortable and has everything you will need- except groceries. The hosts really have thought of everything to make a stay there relaxing and stress-free. The location is gorgeous! Ocean view, quiet road great for hiking, and lots of hares to watch! Hares we found out are really big rabbits that nibble the grass in the yard in the mornings and at dusk. Waterville and Portmagee we enjoyed tremendously. Don't miss Skellig Michael trip and Kenmare for great shopping.

“Amazing Rental -- beautiful location and lovely property on the inside”
Reviewed 12 April 2012 for a stay in April 2012

We're tempted to give a terrible review so that no one else discovers this place, but that seems unfair. The Loher Beach House is FANTASTIC. We took pictures every day of the view from the house, because it never ceased to amaze us. And the open floor plan is set up such that you get to look at the view whether you're sitting at the dining room table or relaxing in the living room.

On the inside, the house is very well-appointed -- great couches for sinking in to after a long day of hiking, three en-suite bedrooms, a flatscreen TV and working wi-fi, etc. Probably the best surprise was discovering how well-equipped the kitchen is. It really has just about everything you need for making any meal. We definitely wound up relying on Cahersiveen rather than Waterville for groceries, so it's good to try to shop for a couple days at a time, but the drive there and back isn't bad.

As for outside activities: the house is right on the Kerry Way, so that's convenient for those contemplating longer hikes. You can do a short walk down to the beach (picture below) or the hour-long walk from the driveway to the end of Hog's Head. For adventures slightly further away, the drive 15-20 minutes to Derrynane offers some great beaches and islands to explore, plus access to another section of the Kerry Way. In the other direction, the walk up Brae Head on Valencia Island (about half an hour away) is great, and nearby Port McGee & Knightstown are charming.

The walks/hikes mentioned above were all excellent suggestions from John (the owner) -- definitely talk to him about things to do! He and the housekeeper Penny are both extremely helpful.

We would definitely return to the property! It's a bit remote (would definitely recommend coming in from Kerry Airport, rather than Dublin as we did), so you're definitely committing some time to getting out there. But once you're there you don't ever want to leave!

Liked best: The breathtaking view from most of the house (great open floor plan!) and the very well-equipped kitchen.
Liked least: Some of the roads in the area are a bit harrowing (narrow & two-way), but that's no fault of the property.

Management Response

Thank you for the review and I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Loher Beach House. However, I am sorry you feel the operating cost i.e. heating, was high. As I pointed out to you at the time your usage was indeed very high, in fact, it was about 2.5 times the normal usage for this time of year. We have mostly LED lighting, a very efficient condensing boiler and very good heating controls however, just like your own home, these need to be used effectively in order to minimise wastage and avoid unnecessary high costs. As per our booking conditions we only charge exactly the per unit cost of energy, no premium is added.
