Comfortable and convenient location for visiting Kenmare and the

Bell Heights is in the town of Kenmare yet has views of Kenmare Bay and the Caha Mountains of the Beara peninsula. The apartment was very comfortable, the owners were helpful and parking was right by the door. Kenmare is our favorite town in Ireland and the Beara is beautiful. We would rent this unit again.

Ideal location for 3 peninsulas, quiet, but 5 min walk from live

The owners were away, but there were clear instuctions and arrangements in place. The apartment was clean and spacious, and warmly furnished as opposed to feeling cold and clinical or shabby, which has been in our previous experiences. The apartment was very well equipped and the only reason it didn't have 5 stars, was because of lack of Wi Fi. However, the visitors book was full of useful tips. The location was perfect for us, quiet, overlooking Kenmare Lake, but a short walk away from lively bars, restaurents, quirky shops, and the other attractions the town has. My husband and I were staying with our teenage daughter, and there was plenty for us to do, wth our different interests, and it was great to have 2 bathrooms! All in all, it ranked as one of our top 5 holidays.

We felt like local citizens.

The apartment was comfortable, nicely furnished, and well equipped. It was a pleasant, short walk to the town of Kenmare. The owner was very kind and made it clear that we should call her if we needed anything, including driving/directions advice to local points of interest. The neighbors were friendly and the parking was very convenient..we never worried about leaving our rented car overnight or for the day. This apartment was a delight to live in and, in short, was an excellent value. We are americans and this was our first visit to Ireland, but we felt that we belonged there.

a wonderful irish break

what a fantastic apartment! I know the weather makes a lot of difference but the view from the balcony was as good as anywhere I've been in the world. Everyone in the town was friendly and made our stay so much the better. We will be back

Spot on location, good facilities and friendly owners

The apartment is on the first floor with a balcony that has a mountain view and gets the sun most of the day - and yes, the sun shone quite a lot of the time we were there! The accommodation had everything we needed and we were made to feel at home by the owners, who met us when we arrived. We were tired after a long drive so a couple of friendly faces, a carton of milk with tea bags and bottle of wine were just what we needed. Kenmare is a bustling and lively little town with food and drink to suit most tastes and pockets (don't underestimate how early you need to book a table if you want a 'posh' meal), a couple of supermarkets , free wifi in a couple of cafes and pubs and commuter-bike-style cycle hire. But the best thing for us is it's location, at the base of the Beara and Iveragh peninsulas, with their mountains, lakes, Atlantic coasts, coves, beaches and great cycling & walking areas.
