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!
Excellent endroit pour sillonner autour , la maison est fantastique avec une superbe vue , à notre arrivée bouteille de vin, fromage et pain étaient offerts par Patrick
Response from Patrick:
Thank you Isabelle for being such wonderful guests at Bedrock and thank you also for taking great care of it during your stay. We look forward to welcoming you back to Bedrock again in the future. kind regards to you and your’s Patrick
Oberhalb vom Meer gelegen mit einem traumhaften Blick von der Terrasse haben wir eine schöne Woche im Bedrock Cottage verbracht. Großzügiges Platzangebot für 4 Personen, gut ausgestattete Küche und nah zum Ring of Kerry, Ring of Beara und Killarney Nationalpark. Netter Empfang mit Brot. Käse und Wein – vielen Dank, Patrick! Absolute Empfehlung
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
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.
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 has stunning views and is even ideal when the gales are howling and that horizontal rain lashing between the sunny days. The fishing was excellent. The cottage was sufficiently well away from centres of population to inspire some writing too. All in all a perfect stay, thank you Patrick.
Hi Patrick, We enjoyed our stay so much. Thank you for that great week in Bedrock.
Bedrock Cottage exceeded out expectations. The house was comfortable, clean and well equipped. The owner and manager were easy to deal with and anticipated all our needs. We chose this as a perfect spot from which to launch adventures in every direction but we were just as happy to be right there. Having the utilities included in the rental kept things simple. We highly recommend Bedrock Cottage.
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.
