We had an outstanding few days in this gorgeous, roomy house in the heart of lovely Ballinskelligs. Very well furnished and equipped, with the converted attic a particularly nice feature--couldn't have asked for more. Didn't want to leave!

Management response:

glad you enjoyed your stay with us and thank you for your kind words. Hope to see you back again in the future
