“Idyllic Holiday”
Reviewed 23 June 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We stayed in the 2 bedroom East Cottage for one week. It was wonderful to get 'away from everything'. We could look out at night and see the stars without light pollution. It was so quiet. During the day it was relaxing to listen to the trickle of the water against the rocks; and to watch the seals making their way to the rocks.
I have several photos of the environs of the cottage in so many different lights.
It was wonderful to have the freedom to travel around the absolutely superb views of the coasts and the mountains in Kerry without traffic jams in February. We also found some lovely clean beaches.
We usually ate out during the day; and catered for ourselves in the evening. The facilities in the cottage were good. In February we found that some of the restaurants in Sneem seemed to be shut during the week.
At this time of the year some of the tourist type attractions were shut. However, we prefer to be in the area when it is quieter.
The cottage was cosy throughout with the open fire and electric heaters. We had a good welcome on arrival; and assured of any support if we needed it.

Date of stay: February 2015

“Warm and Cozy Lodgings with Seals!”
Reviewed 4 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

My adult daughter and I stayed on the side of Pier Cottage with 2 bedrooms. The kitchen was well equipped, and the washer/drier worked well. The heating system was adequate, and we were comfortable and warm during the day and night, whether or not we chose to use the charming fireplace (which we did). In our spring travels, we discovered that some lodgings are quite cold, and this was not a problem here. Everything was also in good repair.

There is a binder at the cottage with many suggestions on outings and helpful info. The owner and the caretaker were both in touch with us prior to our stay, and were, it seemed, just happy to hear from us; they were so welcoming.
The best part of all, every morning to look at the shore and see the seals in the ocean near the shore. Pristine, wild, and beautiful. What an experience.
All of this is right at the edge of the Ring of Kerry, the Skellig Ring, and near an incredible national forest with mountains. Not to mention the fish market, and shopping in Kenmare, not to be missed.
I would recommend Pier Cottage to everyone. Children would need close supervision, given that it is on the ocean. If you love nature, this is an unforgettable place that will exceed your expectation.

“Perfect summer holiday location”
Reviewed 27 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We rented out the entire cottage, perfect for two small families who would like to holiday together, or one big family. The location is amazing, particularly if you like being in or on the water. Or if not just enjoying the scenery. Direct access to the sea so ideal for canoeing and kayaking. Hosts were excellent, Katherine can't be more helpful. Lovely local cafe 10 minute walk away with great coffee! Certainly would return.
