“Anglers delight”
Reviewed 14 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

After previously visiting this part of Ireland for a short break, we promised ourselves a longer visit and Pier Cottage at Westcove did not disappoint. Some of our group were anglers and the sea fishing in the ring of Kerry is legendary. By the end of our trip most of us had broken our previous best catches with a notable 10lb conger caught from the shore as well as Cod, Pollack and a 15lb Ling caught from a boat over rough ground. Pier Cottage is in fact two dwellings (East and West) however I would recommend anyone staying to book both. The place is also well equipped and has a separate utility room with sink and draining board attached to it. This was ideal for gutting and cleaning the fish that we caught. In fact this place is so suited to anglers that the owner may be well served by advertising the place in some of the more popular angling publications. Aside from the fishing there is plenty of wildlife to be seen including Seals, Otters, Curlews and Oyster Catchers. As well as the wildlife there are some beautiful small towns and villages to visit including Sneem and Kenmare. In essence Pier Cottage is a beautiful 17th century former coast guard cottage with rustic peat fires set in an equally rustic and wild setting. We shall definitely be returning.
