The views from this property are amazing. We spent each morning looking over St Finians Bay whilst drinking a cup of tea, admiring the sea, the birds and the wildlife. It is situated on the Skellig Ring, which is off of the Ring of Kerry. It is exactly what we expected and fulfilled our wish of a peaceful and relaxing break and a base to tour around the south west coast of Ireland. The owners were charming and helpful. You don't go to Ireland for the weather, enjoy the stunning scenery and warm hospitality and you will feel rejuvenated and refreshed!

We woke to cows in our yard and decided to take our coffee on the porch with them. Between the lowing of these cows and the baaaaing of the sheep across the road, I couldn't have asked for a more serene morning. While the place is out of the way, sight seeing and the town are still within reach. There is a fun little chocolate factory nearby and the Holy Well beach is a nice walk or 5 minute drive. The cottage was nicely sized for the 3 of us and well stocked with basic needs. Cell service is spotty but it was a great excuse to turn off my phone.
