“Best Cottage ever”

I can honestly say without fear of contradiction that this was the best holiday cottage that we ever stayed in. It felt less like a holiday rental and more like you own home only better. Everything from the decor to the facilities was perfect. The cottage itself is a two bedroom (sleeps four) open plan style but it does not feel like it as there is a distinct separation of kitchen from lounge. The kitchen is better then well appointed and is to a very high standard, it has a built in oven-hob, a dishwasher, microwave, toaster, kettle, coffee maker and enough crockery and cutlery for six people let alone four. There are two bedrooms each with en-suite shower room and walk in wardrobes, each bedroom also has it's own t.v. and very comfortable beds. The lounge has two sofas a large screen t.v. and a duel fuel stove ( although when we stayed it was not cold enough to justify using it, pity) and also a very neat wall mounted stereo system. The patio garden is small but is a very comfortable place to spend an evening with a glass of wine, should you get the weather, and has some interesting bits and bobs. There is even a small utility room with a washing machine and a tumble dryer and even has an extra toilet, that makes three toilets in all, brilliant. I really cannot fault this place and the owner, Mr Daly,is a very friendly, warm and generous person. He has thought of everything and even his guest book has a nice story to relate about the history of the cottage and it's surroundings. Talking of the surroundings the cottage is located in a very small town called Gneevguilla which has a post office a small supermarket and two pubs, as I said small, however it is located just 12 kms from Killarney and about 40 kms from Cork city so is an ideal base for exploring Kerry and west Cork. Therefore a car is essential, however there are some nice walks in the area and the locality is well worth exploring on foot. The title of my piece is Best cottage ever and if your ever lucky enough to stay here you will know why.
