Holiday Home Waterville, hotel in Waterville

Located in Waterville and only 800 metres from Waterville Beach, Holiday Home Waterville provides accommodation with mountain views, free WiFi and free private parking.

-The House is situated just off "Waterfield Centre", half a mile from the shops the pubs and the bay! Don't be too excited with centre as it is a small town! We were expecting many more people as it was the weekend of WTF, multiples trails in the countryside! Was lovely, very local and friendly! The house is semi detached, big-a bit too big as it is quite empty especially the kitchen! At the end, it is functional but not cozy! Three bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a mud room. A small Garden (4x8 m) with three comfy chairs and a wooden table to picnic. Not a lot of privacy but very well appreciated because it was very sunny and the garden is full south so sun from morning to evening! The bedrooms where cute and welcoming. Good Beds though on the short side lengthwise (we are not very large people). THere is a Very good restaurant of fresh pasta and seafood called oh MaryLou, I where you can also do takeaway. The pub "The lobster" was also great for fish and chips and burgers. The location is excellent! Very quiet, night and day. THe bay was very welcome. Beach of sand and peables. THe local authority encourages to pick up 3 pieces of plastic for home recycling to keep the beach nice and clean. I loved it! I did it but did find only small fragments. It works!

Quinlan & Cooke Boutique Townhouse and QCs Seafood Restaurant, hotel in Waterville

Quinlan & Cooke Boutique Townhouse, formerly QC's, is family-run and situated in Cahersiveen on The Wild Atlantic Way.

It had everything you could possibly want in a hotel - all the staff were fantastic. Anthony facilitated access to private parking on the property. What was very impressive was they kept the kitchen open beyond their normal closing for me as I arrived very late in the evening. The contemporary cool interior design of property is amazing including garden. It is spotlessly clean with top range shower facilities. I ate in the restaurant (Hake & veg) it was excellent.

    Waterville is a pretty little village in kerry dark sky reserve and close to kerry cliffs. Friendly people but not a lot to do. Excellent guinness beef stew at Dooley's. Would not recommend Darc apartments. - 3rd bedroom was like a closet and very uncomfortable cot to sleep on. 2 bathrooms- one toilet was out of order and no water pressure in either shower. Could have been cleaner - used bars of soap in bathrooms..Tv not hooked up and other than helping us find the unit , which was poorly marked- owner of unit did not respond to inquiries from us regarding plumbing, tv etc. Location was convenient

    It was beautiful!!! Great location and service and food! Lovely clean room & new en suite. Room has ocean front view and you can fall asleep looking at the stars! There is also a lounge to watch the sunset! You really need a car for Waterville to get to Smuggler’s Inn.

    I thought people in Waterville very friendly and helpful. The promenade is a lovely opportunity for a walk along the sea! Interesting to read about Mick O'Dwyer and Charley Chaplin linked to this small seaside town! The scenery around Waterville is spectacular.

    More lively than we thought it would be in the dead of winter. It's a nice clean, well-kept town in an outstanding location by the sea. The mountains are right beside you. Plenty of places to explore.

    Beautiful hotel and in a great location overlooking the ocean! We drove and found it quite easily. They had parking out the back which made it easy for us to park and enter the premises. The room was large and spacious and so was the bathroom. The hotel was connected to a bar which we found appealing for afternoon drinks! They also had various other rooms you could use such as a quiet room and a billiards room. There was lots to choose from for breakfast and it was always delicious! We had a great stay thank you!

    The location is absolutely stunning. It is right on the beach with fantastic views. We went for a walk at suntan was unforgettable. The hotel itself is very cosy and cute with great atmosphere. The staff was very friendly and accommodation. I would also highly recommend the restaurant. The food at dinner was great! Breakfast was also lovely. Takeaway lunch was somewhat disappointing, but not a deal-breaker. We have noted it down for our next trip and will recommend to friends!

    The room was perfect, immaculate and comfortable. Beautiful view of the lake. The hosts were extremely helpful and accommodating. Location is great, Waterville has plenty of nice bars and restaurants, and it's a short drive south to beautiful Caherdaniel/Derrynane beach or North to Valentia Island/ Skellig ring/ Cahershiveen or Kells. Great value for money. Fishing is good on the lake. Even with little experience on a hot day, I caught a fish within 20 minutes of casting.

    We stayed here so that we'd be close to the departure point for our trip to Skellig Michael out of Portmagee, and it turned out to be a very convenient location with great views. The room was clean and well-appointed, and a good size for three people. Being able to book a room with three beds was excellent. Everyone we interacted with from the hotel was friendly and accommodating.

    Great interior design. New, modern and full of taste and lovely scent. Cosy beds and a absolutely perfect bathroom. The breakfast was outstanding a la carte. Even for spoiled people a must in Waterville. The host was kind, friendly and very service orientated. We would stay there whenever we are in Waterville.

    The location of the property and the views from it were excellent. We found the property to be an good base for exploring the local area and also the ring of Kerry. It has good safe parking, is reasonably quiet, and is within easy walking distance of the good facilities in Waterville.
