“Another Rave”
Reviewed 21 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Joop and Maria have created paradise on earth-----and they are the perfect hosts. The cottage was perfect: spectacular views, a delightful garden, well equipped and cheery kitchen, lovely eating area, cozy living room, comfortable bedrooms. When we walked in we were greeted with a fresh baked loaf of bread and a bottle of wine. Would we stay there again? Wrong question: why on earth did we ever leave?

“Beautiful and comfortable cottage in a perfect location”

I stayed at Fuchsia cottage with my husband, our two kids and my mother. From the moment we arrived we loved every aspect of the cottage; the amazing views over the bay, the beautiful garden and the cosy and immaculate interior . It made us feel like we were really going to enjoy our stay. (and we did of course!) The owners, who live next door, are very friendly and available to offer assistance if needed, and they made us feel very welcome by providing a 'welcome pack' of wine, homemade bread, cheese and orange juice. The cottage is located just outside Kenmare town, and there is lots to do and see on the peninsula so it was a great base for our daily trips, and a cosy home away from home to come back to at the end of each day. This was our first time visiting Kerry as a family with my mum joining us from Holland and staying at Kenmare cottage helped make it a really wonderful holiday.

“Wonderful cottage with fantastic views.”
Reviewed 23 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We spent a lovely week here with our daughter and her family. One of the rooms upstairs had a double, single and a cot so ideal for their young family. The cottage has everything you need and more. The bottle of wine and homemade bread is a lovely touch and very welcoming. This really is a great place to stay with very friendly and helpful owners who live next door. If you're looking for somewhere to stay in this area you would not be disappointed with here.

“Fantastic Stay - will definitely be back !"”

As another reviewer stated, if you are looking for a place in Kenmare, stop reading this review and book it right now !

A fantastic stay ! Joop and Maria couldn't have been nicer. The cottage is lovely with a great view. Just a few minutes from Kenmare, yet with a nice, remote feel. It's very comfortable, immaculate, and has all the amenities you need: even a loaf of fresh baked bread and a bottle of wine waiting for you.

Joop and Maria were incredibly helpful, recommending terrific restaurants in Kenmare and even helping to arrange a trip to the Skelligs (also highly recommended).

We are already talking about our next visit to Ireland, which will certainly include a stay at Fuchsia Cottage !

“A homely feel away from home”
Reviewed 25 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

people found this review helpful

We arrived in the driving rain, but now and again it does rain in Ireland! And it was a delight to walk into this warm and homely Cottage to freshly baked soda bread from the owners along with a bottle of wine and a hearty slab of cheese!

The view from the back of the house, which the kitchen/diner looks on to is something we'll always remember. It doesn't get much better than reading a good book in a real live rocking chair looking out over the bay and the mountains.

The house was lovely and clean throughout and a short drive into Kenmare which was everything you'd expect from a fairy tale Irish town: plenty of shops selling everything you could possibly think of that's made of wool, cake shops galore and about 124 pubs all selling guiness, playing irish music and crammed to the rafters every night!

I heartily recommend a stay here!
