Super geeignet für einen romantischen ruhigen Urlaub zu zweit! Sneem ist in ca. 30 min. erreicht. Kenmare in 10 min. Wenn man einfach die Straße weiter bergauf fährt kommt man in wunderschöne Landschaften! Und in den Nationalpark. Der Garten/Terrasse ist “Naturbelassen”. Barfuss ging erst nach einiger Handarbeit – dornige Ranken auf dem Boden
We had a lovely stay at your house! The view was juist amazing, even beter than we expected. It was quiet and you had nearly no neighbours so you could make as much noise as you wanted and no one would hear (Not that we did it ofcourse). There were enough attractions nearby and the house was clean and cosy. I have no more things to say, it was a great holiday!
Really enjoyed our stay in Bedrock Cottage. Stunning view, really quiet place, surrounded by nature. The house is comfortable (heated floor), bright (large windows), well equipped and it even has wifi. Its location is great to visit the whole south west, approx 1h away from Killarney, Cork, Kerry cliffs… Patrick was really easy to reach for any question, and a bottle of wine and cheese were waiting for us when we arrived. Nice touch. Would definitely go back!
Patrick is a great host, the Bedrock Cottage is fully equipped and the view is just spectacular. We felt very welcome and Patrick answered to all of our questions in no time. We highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a quiet and relaxing time. Thanks again Patrick and Tricia (and in our case John). We had a great time and would always come back to your place.
Très agréable maison,idéale pour 2 couples ou un seul avec un ou deux enfants. C’est le calme ,la vue superbe et avec le temps irlandais,sur la Kenmare river et ses îles, ça n’est jamais la même lumière ,la même impression ! Nous avons aussi apprécié la confiance des propriétaires,pas de caution, pas d’état des lieux,si vous cassez quelque chose ils vous demande simplement de remplacer.Alors à vous de mériter cette confiance ! En arrivant nous avons trouvé (en plus de la petite attention de bienvenue)une température agréable (chauffage par le sol basse température) Quelques petites idées cependant pour les propriétaires (pour amener la location au top) -Mettre des mitigeurs sur l’évier et sur la baignoire(l’eau est très chaude et assez difficile à régler) -Mettre des rideaux plus opaques dans les chambres (Peut être pour les français ?) En Irlande je n’ai jamais vu de volets aux fenêtres) -Avoir plus d’assiettes et de couverts pour éviter de faire tourner le lave vaisselle trop souvent. Bon séjour aux futurs locataires
Bedrock is an ideal base to explore the Ring of Kerry, the National Park, Kenmare , the cliffs, hills and sea shores in comfortable driving distance. The ever changing views over the Kenmare River (bay) are just magnificent at any time of day and tidal level. Bedrock is well equipped and a homely residence . Thank you Patrick for your welcoming arrival package.
Lovely spacious and cosy cottage (very effective underfloor heating) with great views from large French windows. Hurricane-proof too (Ophelia struck during our stay)..! Friendly, helpful owner. Less than 15 mins drive into Kenmare for pubs, restaurants etc and only 25 mins into Killarney National Park. Ring of Kerry road 5 mins. Didn’t manage to get the driveway lights working and a few bulbs missing or not working (outside light, cooker hood, extractor fan etc). Had we mentioned these relatively minor issues at the time I’m sure Patrick would have sorted for us but we didn’t so that’s our fault. If we find ourselves in these parts again we would book again without hesitation. Internet worked well. Ring of Kerry golf club next door too. Detached, private, peaceful. Flat-screen TV would be nice. Very enjoyable all-round.
The listing description was entirely accurate it is a beautiful cottage, well appointed with the most magnificent view and location. Perfect for a “get away”, time to relax and enjoy! Correspondence with host was through email, which was answered promptly.
Patrick’s cottage was well equipped for anything we might need. We cooked dinner there one night, no problem. The beds and pillows were the comfiest of our entire Ireland vacation, so we rested deeply and well. We couldn’t stop looking out the windows!–what a delight it was to wake up bleary eyed from the long hikes of the day before to see the stunning Kenmare Bay greeting us while we enjoyed our morning tea. The vantage point is phenomenal! We enjoyed the sunrises and sunsets here so much. Tucked out of the way from both Kenmare and Killarney, it was still an excellent place to access all the attractions of Killarney National Park / Gap of Dunloe and an easy drive to enjoy Kenmare town. If we had more time, it would have been a great jumping off point for Ring of Kerry and the Beara Peninsula drives as well… alas, just not enough time! We were sad to leave, and would stay here again in a heartbeat! Thank you, Patrick!
The cottage is exactly as described. The view is beautiful , everything you need is available and the cottage is clean. It is about 9 Km. (10 minute drive) from Kenmare were you can find Aldi and Lidl and many nice restaurants. If you want to make day trips the cottage is situated central. The only “small” disadvantage is that if you want to take walks in the nature or beach you will need a car. The owner (Patrick) did leave small welcome presents and his phone number for us ,but did not introduced himself personally. Some people will like this other maybe not. All in all it was a very nice time in the Bedrock cottage.
