We had a group of 16 people staying in 2 houses at Glor na Habhainn. We had booked one classic and one luxury house. We had a great weekend for Other Voices, and will definitely be back to Glor na Habhainn. The luxury house has a lot more space in the shared areas than the classic houses, furnished to a very high standard with all the kitchen supplies you need for a few days of self catering. You'll feel like royalty in this house.The master bedroom is palatial with a walk in wardrobe and all! It's a 7 minute walk in to town. Close by there is a Lidl and the Dingle brewery. And a little b...more
The house was fab! Great view of the valley. Very comfortable, very well equipped, comfortable beds, with a quiet location but within easy walking distance of shops in the town. Friendly owner, very responsive to any questions we had. Would have been nice if the back yard was more of a garden than a yard, but it was certainly practical for hanging out clothes, and we were out and about most of the time anyway. Would definitely recommend for a family. We'd go again for sure!
A few suggestions to improve... The games room - the kid's pool que was broken ( the top part) so they couldn't use it Sauna was a little finnicky to use
Lovely view from the house. Well equipped kitchen and spacious open plan area. Lovely to have wood burning stove for the chilly evenings. We would definitely stay there again. Well located for visitingoveky towns like Skibereen, Schull, Glengariff.
Ballyvonane is one of the most perfect holiday homes I have rented. The quality of the home and the furnishings was A+! It rained for several days and we were content to just relax on the property! The views are breathtaking, the privacy in every room is amazing, no one could hear anyone else move around and the house was outfitted for every possible need or want! I simply can not say enough about this property and I will be back for another stay!
Great location, fantastic surroundings, beautifully restored buildings, the house was spotless, everything required provided. Playground out backgarden, brilliant for children. Would recommend this to anyone.
I can't praise this accommodation enough. Great price and excellent location. The suite itself was very well equipped - especially the kitchen. We spent a very comfortable week here.
Very comfortable and modern large house. Would happily move in permanently! Gas cooker. Island. Beds and bed linen high quality. Playground beside houses. Basketball court close to hotel. Car journey from town but easy commute and worth it. Pass shops at Ardkeen for supplies. Ferry went within 5/ 10 mins of arriving at water side. Would highly recommend for self catering.
Spent a lovely week in Aspen house. Lovely property, very homely. Great location will definitely be back.
This house is very near to Wellingtonbridge, Duncannon and Fethard on Sea. The rooms were perfect and house could sleep 5 easily. All mod cons such as dishwasher, WiFi and electric shower are there. Small shop within 15 minutes walk . The hosts couldn’t have been nicer to us. Would absolutely recommend staying here and hopefully we will be back in the future .
The location is stunning. There is a lagoon with a nice beach within a few minutes' walk - we had it all to ourselves for the whole 2 weeks of our stay. If you're looking for a "normal" sea holiday, the Carne Pier sea beach is within 5 km range, too. The views were magnificent, there's plenty of nature around (seals, crabs, terns, lizards, unusual plants etc). The night sky is beautiful to gaze on, as there's very little light pollution. The hosts were very helpful and friendly, the house was fine (the only downside being non-existent sound insulation between the floors). The Wi-Fi is very goo...more
The highlight of our trip was the eco boat trip where we saw hundreds of dolphins minky whales and hump backs. We could walk into town all the time in 15 minutes the view from no 18 is fabulous and we had a really great holiday
Just returned from a staycation and cannot recommend this house highly enough. Gorgeous peaceful setting with donkeys and deers for neighbours. The house is about 5min drive from Glengarriff village and 20min from Bantry. The house itself is spotless and well equipped. It is set in beautiful grounds and there is plenty to explore outside the front door. We have already booked out return visit.
First succesfull SUN holiday in years,easy booking fiendly helpfull girl over the phone,profesional driver on pick up.apartment had all that we needed aircon,great wifi,excellent location pool clean and safe for kids as was walk to beach and shops.short bus ride to aquapark and shopping mall.
Really lovely, spacious comfortable house 2 mins walk from Sneem Village. Beautifully sited bedside the river with amazing views of the mountains.House was spotless and very well maintained and PJ could not have been more helpful
very comfortable house for a family holiday we had 6 adults 1 8 year old 1 18month Magnificent view 10 minute walk to Sneem village Owner Noel very helpful No hesitation reccomending
Glor na Habhann was a great property, excellently located within a 10 minute walk to town. The houses are clean, tidy, very comfortable and maintained to a high standard. The proprietor Douglas was always available for queries etc. It was on the more expensive side, but we were two families sharing so it worked out OK. I would definitely return to this property.
Woodvilla Lodge is fabulous accommodation, a spacious house suitable for groups of friends and families. The gardens provide secure area for children to play safely. The house was furnished to a high standard, spotlessly cleaned and the beds were super comfortable, we didn't want to go home! Outdoors was as good as inside, there is great garden furniture and a gas BBQ. It's a little out of the way so transport is necessary although a short walk takes you to Bridgetown. Mary Barry's restaurant is a must - the restaurant can make arrangements to collect and brings you back via flexi bus so yo...more
A home from home. This house was perfect for our stay. From the moment we booked the owners were there to help. The house was spotless when we arrived and some lovely edible treats awaited us! The house is in a lovely quiet area but also only a short walk into Dingle. We will definitely return.
Our stay was excellent all round.Grate location close to beach and nearby to shops.Plenty of space for our kids to roam without worry as they were in an enclosed area..
Excellent stay.Great location. Did all the boating tours around the area which are well worth it. Couldn’t have asked for more. Thanks to Caroline and Brenda in Relax Ireland who recommended this destination.
Lovely area, short drive to Kenmare Town and to a pebble beach in the other direction. The houses are located in a quiet area with lots of green space. Milena who managed the property is extremely helpful and efficient. One small negative, the properties are advertised as having paid use of kenmare bay hotel leisure centre. Due to covid19, the facilities are only available to hotel residents for 2021. That might change but worth checking beforehand if it's part of the draw of booking. Nearest public pool is killarney. Swimming is possible at the beach nearby though.
We stayed at the Stone House at the beginning of July, 2021. It's only 6 minutes drive to rosslare strand. The House is beautiful, really nicely designed and well thought through for people staying. The driveway is shared with the owners but don't get put off by that, we had our own private garden. We have two young boys and they could run into the different gardens on the grounds safely and visit the hens! The gardens are stunning, we've never seen a place quite like it! The sitting room is very comfortable and has a separate beautiful dining room. A great sized kitchen with everything you ne...more
My wife & young son had a great week in Ballyrane House in August. The house is stunning, full of charm & characture while the kitchen area makes you feel very much at home and the ample break out rooms let you relax... The gardens are lovely with plenty of walking & exploring available. Caretaker Eddie was very helpful, answering any queries we had and his local knowledge made the stay even more enjoyable. I'd highly recommend a relaxing break in this amazing home away from home - we hope to get back down sooner rather than later.
We were delighted with our stay and would recommend it to others. We are keen to return to Mount Falcon.
The collage was very cosy and warm, and well fitted. It has wonderful gardens with fairy trees and houses for kids to explore and play. It is in a lovely part of Wexford and has lots of outdoor facilities, with horse-riding, walking and beautiful beaches nearby.
Initially the communication was excellent and the arranging of the transport from and to the airport was stress-free and cheap. The house was perfect, everything provided, very clean, near the beach and near the town. Swimming pools was also great. The people who lived there were very nice, no incidences of drunkenness or aggressive behavior, or noise at night, etc. Difficult to sleep at night with the heat, but not much the agency/opener can do about that.
This is a 5* property - we had such an amazing holiday (helped by the lovely weather - which cannot always be guaranteed!) The views and location are stunning and on a clear day you could just sit an stare out of the copious windows for hours. There was plenty of space for our extended family holiday of 10 adults and 2 children. Everything was thought of with excellent/ample bathrooms, linens, laundry, kitchen, crockery, glassware etc facilities - we were particularly impressed by the 2 dishwashers!! I would recommend this house to anyone looking for a beautiful place to stay. The only ...more
We were delighted in general with the location, facilities and staff at Hookless Village. Great value for money. 2 things to note : 1 although it did not bother us, I would not advertise it as having free wifi in the houses as this is not available at present : 2 10am is a very early check out time with children.
The apartment was in a great position for getting to all the spots in Wexford town, the bus station, the main street, restaurants, the opera theatre, the Tesco ( a big supermarket), but was still quiet at night, although the apartment was next to the main street. The owners were very helpful and friendly. On the second day, as our stay was 3 weeks, the owner took us to the city to show how the city looked like. She took us to the hospital and super markets. Thanks to the owner, i got lots of information at that time. That helped us a lot! All facilities were nice, I liked the sofa and the dou...more
We had fantastic week in dingle staying in cois chonic . The house was perfect everything you need for a family self catering holiday . very comfortable and spotlessly clean . Quiet location
For the price we paid I would assume rubbish collections would be included, I've rented other properties for less money of similar standard and all rubbish included. .
We had a great short break in this lovely house and our host was brilliant. Definitely recommended if you are looking for a relaxing getaway for a few days!
We had a very enjoyable stay in Tig Bawn. It is in a very quiet small estate. The house is newly decorated, has comfortable beds and a modern kitchen. We were delighted that they could accommodate us with an extra bed for our 7yo. The wifi and netflix were very handy. The local shop is about a 10 minute walk up the road, the beach about a 5 minute drive. Lots of activities in the area - kayaking, fishing, swimming, golf (crazy and otherwise!), playground, lovely restaurants and coffee shops, Kellys hotel and spa, walks, tennis and various activities in the Community Centre.
Fantastic location, walk to everything in Kilarney, a great little town! Clean, convenient but sterile. A few issues, only 1 small towel per person for a week with 4 golfers. Not enough TP, and sparse but adequate cookware. Living room is roomy but only a tiny couch and kitchen chairs. Not adequate for us to sit down and watch the games. Would highly recommend they put a large couch with room for 4. Only real failure was bed situation. I specifically asked for 4 single beds when inquiring about the property, and very clearly, repeatedly emphasized this as we had 4 men staying there. I...more
No towels at our lodge when we arrived and the TV didn't work but with a phone call we got both of them sorted.
We loved our stay---thanks for organizing . Brilliant house. All our problems were in the first hour-----2 small ones: 1.When we arrived,we had difficulty getting in----outside gate seemed to be locked and it was difficult to find the latch to open it 2. When we arrived, facing us all together,were 7 controls for tv etc.Which one was the correct one? we never worked it out and had a week without tv---good for us!
Relax Ireland were excellent to deal with. The caretaker Martin was extremely helpful. The house and the location were for perfect for our short break.
Stayed here recently with my family and had a great few days.house was perfect,very spacious and little added extras we didnt expect.location was fabulous..couldnt ask for better.only minor fault was some services advised in welcome book were not available but this was nothing too major.overall a great experince and would recommend to all.
We stayed in Carbery house 1+2 for a week. The location was perfect, secluded, lots of green space for kids to run around. The view was breathtaking!!! The only fault with the house is that the floorboards were like paper and with it being a house made for 8 and the second for 6, we found that it was not sound proof in the slightest. You could practically hear a whisper if you were upstairs and and people downstairs. Apart from this, we loved the place and service was great. Anytime we needed anything, the staff were very obliging. I would highly recommend this house for a holiday but just...more
Great location. Very uncomfortable beds and couch. Couch dirty. Nice bed linen. Entrance hallway very unclean and in need of renovation. Some dirty/worn out towels provided. Well equipped. Beautiful Georgian features e.g. fireplaces. Lovely outdoor seating area.
On beach, with super Icecream Parlour, supermarket and fab restaurants within 20M - could'nt be better.
We used all 4 bedrooms. The main bedroom is exceptional with a seating area and television. All bedrooms were at least double bed size with en suite facilities. The third bedroom should have had a wet room but the drain was not at the lowest part of the floor. The lounge dinner needs some attention with a number of lose fittings and the glass table extensions missing. However, there was everything in the kitchen you would require. The reception staff were extremely helpful. The cleanliness of the accommodation was excellent.
Lovely stay with beautiful scenery. Friendly pleasant helpful staff. Good value for money. Would defiantly recommend to other and very happy overall.
Hse very plain,great location to be for beach.swans bar a great place and a lovely place for coffee. Smell in Hse showers not great.3 out of 10 for tis property..host was a lovely woman..
Trip was tainted by a number of irritating add ons and requirements. Took the gloss off a potentiallly lovely stay. A poor welcome to a lovely part of Ireland £100 security deposit on arrival Charge for towels Meter reading Need Strip beds and deliver to reception Need to deliver rubbish Not sufficient utensils in house No cleaning supplies in house Would prefer to pay slight premium to have included
We had a fantastic stay in a wonderful complex. Travelled with young kids all under 6 and they loved the playgrounds and the short walk to the beach. We would definitely recommend Hookless Village to everyone.
Great location.Lots to do for families in the area.The house was very spacious and had most things you could need the only downsife is the house was not well cleaned on arrival
Great week spent in rosslare ..house was perfect very clean and good location. Dog friendly was a big bonus.Caretakers really nice and helpful
A lovely break organised with fantastic customer service from Caroline in Telax Ireland. Thank you very much
The access to the house on arrival and departure was great. It was well located and had everything we needed to have an enjoyable and comfortable stay. Highly recommend these houses to anyone wishing to visit Ireland and need a short-term rental.
Advertised as a luxury apartment our expectations for what we paid were high. Sadly a lack of maintenance and upgrading of amenities let this apartment down. Although we were comfortable and the apartment clean, bathroom facilities were in desperate need of maintenance. Ensuite shower had no hot water at all. Main bathroom lacked shower screen/ curtain and as the only source for showering, mopping up of water after each shower was a task. Balcony sliding doors and front door were a nightmare to lock and we frequently left balcony doors unlocked to save hassles. We loved our time in Ireland and...more
+Clean Appartment +Very Good supplies and appliances +House owner is very co operative and helpful. _ Bed room area is a bit small
We were very happy with our stay at St Andrews. Bright and welcoming, the house itself was perfect for our short break with two children, who had some fun running around and playing safely in this quiet cul de sac during the break in the forecast April showers. A short walk to the beach and shops also. Chris, our host, was a very helpful and pleasant man to chat to.
We celebrated a combination of special family birthdays at this villa in July/August 2018. The accomodation was splendid for 8 young and older adults. The area is mostly residential and may not suite twenty-something age groups as it's a taxi ride to the "vibrant" night life. The pool at the villa is well maintained and quite large. The garden area is large and suitable for lounging, but beware, the artificial grass gets very hot in the sun and can be very uncomfortable underfloor. All in all we had a very enjoyable stay and I can recommend this villa without hesitation.
The facility was fabulous, the people gracious and helpful, and our visit very memorable. Jason 'the Birdman' and Jimmy our shooting instructor were both very knowledgeable and made our experience special. The breakfast staff were quick and courteous, the bar staff fun and pleasant, and the people at the front desk very helpful. Those in our party that did the spa treatments thoroughly enjoyed their experience. Thanks for everything, I hope to visit again.
The accommodation wad ideal for a family needing self catering accommodation to explore the area. Safe and great facilities for young children and adults. However... the sofa/chairs were grubby and had a bit of a "smell"' from previous past users. The upholstery should be wipe down for cleanliness reasons and hygiene. I didn't like sitting on them.when the kids were in bed to relax. That was the only gripe. Great that I could wash and dry clothes and cook meals to keep our holiday costs down.
Beautiful house within driving distance of everything plenty of space and spotless clean. Would definitely visit again
Lovely house, nice space, well maintained except for shutters, very clean. Our welcome by management in Spain was awful. We were told we disturbed their lunch, she called me Cathy on the phone? Also told me I wasn't listening to directions given. Very shocking to be spoken to in that manner. On the first night we raised concern that two bedroom shutters were not working. We were told they were always like that and we were the only people to complain in 12 years. As a result we had to phone the Irish office to get Caroline involved (who advised she was in the house last year and the shitters w...more
Lovely spacious apartment to stay in with swimming pool right beside your door. Restaurants and bars only 5 mins walking
This was our third year in a row, we love the houses and area but this year, we thought that the houses were not cleaned to a good standard and that maintenance is very poor, painting, leaking shower, no hanging rail in wardrobe, front door very strained and hard to close.
Firstly, all my dealings with the girls in Relax Ireland were so smooth and pleasant. They were the most friendly and helpful people, a pleasure to deal with. The cottage itself was above and beyond what we expected. Amazing location with fabulous views. Clean, welcoming and roomy. The beds were all very comfortable. The kitchen has all the appliances one needs for their stay. I would highly recommend this cottage and this company!
House very comfortable and in great location. Beach fab lovely walks.got to explore the area.old head of kinsale fota lsland Charles Fort kinsale and Cork city all with in easy access.
Improvements required include Inadequate supply of hot water for 7 people Patio area to the side was not well maintained and unusable as was bench in front which was covered in bird droppings Downstairs bathroom window lacked privacy(overlooked by neighbouring cottage yard)
Quite good but a few improvements needed. 1.front door v stiff needs attention. 2 shower on ground floor, we were unable to operate it. 3suggest a notice with insteuctions on ooeration of showers and the heaters
