My husband and I, along with out two daughter's (9 and 14) enjoyed about 2.5 weeks at Keane's Cottage and had the best of times. The cottage was a dream, very clean, in the perfect location for our needs, and leaving to come home was one of the hardest things I've ever had to do. I could not imagine staying anywhere else as the cottage had everything we could have possibly needed. I'd highly recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a place to stay while visiting the area.

We were phoned by the owner prior to the holiday and enjoyed a chat. He also rang from USA to ensure all was well on arrival. We were welcomed to Keane's by the owner's extremely helpful custodian, Chris, into a beautiful home prepared by Bridie who is the housekeeper - a welcome food pack and fresh flowers. Both Chris and his wife, Marie, and Bridie were all readily available to answer any questions. Inside, the house is spacious and comfortable and tastefully decorated with antique furniture and collectables (I would not take my sister who is a handbag-swinging type of a girly). The sitting room is lush. Seemingly in the middle of nowhere, we were not far from the lively town of Youghal where we chose to eat in the various, good restaurants - there is an excellent Chinese restaurant and Aherne's is really worth a visit as is The Old Quay. No, we didn't cook much but everything needed was there in the well-equipped kitchen. There is a utility equipped with washer and dryer which we made use of. The shower room and separate bathroom are spacious and well equipped with towels. Comfortable beds completed the pleasure. The garden was tranquil; barely a car, or person for that matter, passed by but those that did gave us a wave and had a short chat. This is what we love about Ireland, people always have time. We spent many an hour sitting out enjoying the peace and the birds. In conclusion, Keane's is quintessentially Ireland in a capsule, to us. Would we go again? If I tell you that I considered, in a flight of fancy, of squatting in the house (the owner is far too nice to inflict that on him) that should give you the answer. On the day we left we were invited for tea by Marie and Chris, where we said our goodbyes with slightly heavy hearts. Oh, yes, the Wifi works very well.

This is a lovely property in the quiet countryside. The cottage was amazingly clean and cozy. Chris and Marie met us there upon arrival and showed us around the place. Rowland was wonderful in checking in on us via email and text. The cottage is only minutes away from the town of Youghal and the views from the cottage are amazing. The house was plenty roomy for the three of us and could easily handle one more person. I would definitely stay here again!! Absolutely beautiful. The locals where very friendly! Bridie checked in on us and made sure everything was working. They even provided us with some basic necessities. Great place and great people!!!

Ein Altes Haus gespickt mit Antiquitäten, aber auch mit modernen Küchengeräten und Waschmaschine. Nichts für jüngere Kinder, da manches zerbrechlich ist, aber für Erwachsene und ältere Kinder gemütlich und liebevoll hergerichtet. Beim Blick aus dem Küchenfenster Auge in Auge mit einer Herde Kerrygold-Rindern, die neugierig die "Neuen" beäugen. Das richtige für Leute, die die Ruhe lieben. Schöne Lauf- und Wanderstrecken bis hin zum Strand. Als Ausgangspunkt für den Ring of Kerry fast ein bisschen weit entfernt, aber es ist zu schaffen. Wir haben uns wohl gefühlt, es war etwas ganz besonderes.

Es ist ein sehr schönes, sehr großes, sehr ruhiges Haus. Die Umgebung ist fantastisch und der Gastgeber ist um jeden Wunsch bemüht und gibt Hilfestellung wo er nur kann. Das Haus ist sehr alt und sehr gepflegt. Die Hafenstadt Youghal ist ein wunderschöner malerischer Ort mit viel Historie und interessanten Stellen die entdeckt werden wollen. Etwas außerhalb gelegen ist der Stand, der einen Besuch wert ist. Egal bei welchem Wetter. Vielen Dank für die tolle Zeit.
