Review 1332: Shamrock Cottages, #145 - Gleesk, Sneem


Review by Steve from New Zealand

2bed/2bath house, Sneem, County Kerry, Ireland


2004, 1 week


Location is a quite remote location on the ring of Kerry. The views are brilliant. So close to the water, we just fell in love with the place. The shower is amazing and it has cool underfloor heating from a geothermal heating system. A very peaceful place.

Nearby Amenities

Drive to groceries in Sneem which is a lovely little village .. a real Irish town. Some brilliant restaurants nearby.

The House/Apartment

The house was recently built and is well finished. Some amazing art work. It located on some very rural townland away from it all.


Very private outside with an area to the side for sitting out in the evening and having a pint of Guinness.

Furnishings/Cleanliness/Living Areas

All furniture and facilities where tip top. Seemed like they where all new. Very relaxed and clean place. Sheets and bed all perfect ... a big King size bed with views of the sea!


Nice beds. The other room had two singles which could be zipped together.


Loads of stuff. Good quality as well. The views from the kitchen are brilliant. We had the music on and used the gas cooker (5 rings if I remember). They also had DVD and Video player and a large selection of books.

Problems or Bonuses

I wish I could buy the place.

Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?

Yes. Yes. Yes.

Things to do in this area

Walking, swiming, fishing, hitchiking touring, golf etc.
