House as described on site. Main bathroom wheelchair accessible, but ensuite not - we were made aware of this before we booked. The location is suitable for anyone who wants a quiet retreat but also ideal for doing the Ring of Kerry.

Management response:

Thank you for taking the time to review! Hope you enjoyed your stay and that we'll see you again in the future.
