    Seashell Cottage.....a home from home

    Value is the combination of price and quality and this property really is very good value. Everything you need for a comfortable holiday has been provided at Seashell's, including the turf for the fire. This property is nicely elevated with a view to the sea and a ten minute walk to the beach. We spent a week here and thoroughly enjoyed it. Brian and Coral

    Beautiful House in an amazing location overlooking Ballinaskellig Bay

    Seashell Cottage is a very nice, clean and modern yet charming cottage. It has everything couple or family or group of friends would need. The location is brilliant with a stunning view of Ballinaskellig Bay and great for travelling to so many of Kerrys best attractions and areas. Brandy the beautiful setter visiting in the morning was an added bonus 😀 I would highly recommend this property for anyone looking for a cottage rental in the Iveragh peninsula. Top class and the owners are lovely, genuine people. Cheers, Jess and Deirdre

It is in such a beautiful scenic area we had some great walks, swimming and surfing. The holiday was grwat for the heart, mind, body and soul that was needed during this time of uncertainty. The hosts were fantastic too. We will be back I hope one day. Thanks

    Lovely comfortable cottage within ten minutes walk of the beach

    A spacious, comfortable 3- bedroom cottage with lively views over the bay and the distant mountains. Perfect for relaxing with the long sandy beach just 10 minutes walk away. Noreen and Brendan were very welcoming and accommodating and we would certainly hope to stay here again.
