Doire Farm Cottages
Reviewed 15 September 2014

My husband, my 19 month old daughter and I stayed in Tom's Cottage at Doire Farm for four nights in September. Our only complaint is that there was no availability to stay longer! Anne was the perfect host, so welcoming and went out of her way to ensure we had everything we needed during our stay. Even prior to our stay, Anne was very prompt with responding to my emails.

The cottage was spotless, very spacious, and more than well equipped with everything you need. The little extras made all the difference and things like having milk in the fridge and a packet of biscuits when you arrive are lovely touches. We also came back one evening to freshly baked scones, very thoughtful! The open fire is lovely and makes the cottage very cosy in the evening. There was also a great enclosed seating area at the back of the cottage which had a table and seats and also a BBQ.

There is a children's play area to the front with a slide, swing, and basketball hoop and our daughter had great fun running around each evening after our day's adventure. Also, she got very attached to the hens and socks the cat!

We would highly recommend Doire Farm Cottages and will definitely be back in the future.

My husband and I stayed at Doire Farm's Jon's cottage for our honeymoon and it was everything we wanted and more! The hosts are extremely tentative and very kind. They really do anything they can to make your stay more comfortable. Jon's cottage is cozy and intimate and absolutely beautiful for a honeymoon! I would recommend Doire Farm Cottages to anyone who wants to go to Ireland, especially if they want to just get away from the chaos of every day life :-)

We stayed in John´s Cottage for 10 days and felt at home from the very beginning. It´s cozy, it´s nicely decorated and it´s situated perfectly for comfortable day-tours to all the famous peninsulas from Sheep´s Head to Dingle. Anne is a perfect host and even surprised us with homebaked cake one evening - nervertheless it´s private and we often caught ourselves talking about "home" when looking forward to a cozy evening in front of the fireplace during a day of long hiking. Would always recommend it and stay there again!

Room Tip: Johns is the most upscale according to the host herself and even is the same rate at off-season

Stayed there a few years back.
Very enjoyable. Clean rooms.
Ann was such a gracious hostess. Fresh eggs and biscuits in the morning!
Loved Scruffy, the Randle's dog.
The close proximity to Kenmare and the Ring of Kerry, was a big plus!
Best Day: Buying fish, cheese, and olives ( and champagne) at Kenmare's market day, and spending the rest of the drizzly day seated in front of the fireplace, munching and sipping champagne.
I hope to return someday!

We stayed in johns cottage for a week in March 2014. After spending weeks searching the internet for a place to stay I landed on Doire farm cottages near to Kenmare.
We are really impressed with johns cottage, and so glad we chose Kenmare as a base instead of Killarney.
Johns cottage has everything you could possibly need, the rooms are large and very well furnished. The quality of kitchen equipment and utensils is very good, not the usual cheap stuff or cast offs found in some holiday rentals. The place was spotlessly clean when we arrived. The cottage has a lovely open fire, jacuzzi bath tub and soft lighting for a romantic evening in.
The wireless internet also works well.
But without doubt the one thing that makes this place standout is the hosts. They are so friendly and helpful, plus good fun. We have been given fresh milk from the dairy cows, fresh eggs from the hens, fresh home baked scones with jam. On arrival there was breakfast cereals, milk, biscuits etc ..exceeded our expectations.
Finally, the cottage is about 5 minutes drive from kenmare. Kenmare is really nice with plenty of drinking and eating establishments. In our view heaps better than the larger Killarney (20-30 minutes away).
Highly recommended. Thanks Anne & Padraig

This was a great base to spend a week touring Kerry and West Cork. The location, about 6 km east of Kenmare, off the road to Kilgarvan, is very scenic and quiet -- lush green pastures and beautiful hills. Our three children and one grandparent had plenty of room in our 3 BR cottage. The owners, Anne and Patrick, are warm, friendly and kind. Everything we hoped for.

When we decided to go to Ireland, I spent weeks online looking for the perfect self-catering cottage....I found it at Doire Farms. The facilities are tremendous....Best we've had anywhere in the world. We stayed in Pa's cottage with three bedrooms and three baths. We are a family of four, so the kids each had his and her own space, but it would also work for three couples. Each room and bath are set away from the other two.

More than the facilities, the pleasure of Doire Farms is the wonderful hospitality provided by Anne and her husband Patrick and kids Maria and Padriac. We got in late in the day and exhausted from our overseas flight. Anne had milk, cereal and homemade baked treats waiting for us...as well as a recommendation for dinner at Foley's in Kenmare.

Patrick took us on a great tour of the farm (even though we hadn't brought our Wellies.) Maria shared her school paper on a nearby abandoned castle (see photo).
