*****I cannot say enough about the Knockcarrig HOUSE! We were 6 adults, loved everything about the house, the amenities (loved the towels! ~ wash/dryer with soap/dryer sheets,plenty of hangers in the closets!), ensuite in all bedrooms was a huge bonus, we cooked in the kitchen~everything we needed was there included serving platters! The location, function and of course our hostess Noelle the BEST! Noelle met us, gave us a tour, provided us with a basket of goodies! checked in to see if all was well during our stay. We left a few items behind, Noelle mailed them to our home and received within 3 days of arriving back home! I would definitely go back and highly recommend the home to anyone looking for comfort, cleanliness, professionally decorated, plenty of spaces to share! luxury on vacation! Thanks again Noelle!

*Irish Dream Home*

The eight of us arrived at Knockcarrig House exhausted. The three kids were cranky, the five adults wary. We only traveled from Boston to Killarney, but it felt much further at that point. This was our first experience renting a house, we are hotel people. However, we were staying two weeks and four suitable hotel rooms together seemed impossible to find. Noelle greeted us at the door of Knockcarrig House and warmly welcomed us to Ireland. We could tell right away she had put her heart and soul into this home she and her husband had created. It was more than we ever expected. First, it was immaculately clean and beautifully decorated. Noelle mentioned she has a background in hospitality, which showed because it had everything we could ever have wanted. There was an abundance of dishes, glasses, silverware, pots and pans, even Guinness pints and Irish coffee mugs! On the island in the kitchen, Noelle had left us a hampers filled with provisions; scones, bread, wine, chocolates, tea, coffee, olive oil. In the refrigerator there was cream, milk, Kerry butter, there was nothing we could have wanted! Everything in the home is the highest quality, from the tile floors to the lovely furnishings. The spacious kitchen allows a large group to congregate. The vaulted ceiling and floor to ceiling windows in the warm dining room made for memorable meals, family game times, or a quiet spot to do some Celtic coloring that both the children and adults enjoyed. The views were spectacular from sunrise to sunset. The five bedrooms upstairs all have private bathrooms, beautiful linens, comfortable beds. A favorite spot for many of us, for morning coffee or evening cocktails, was the large stone patio with views of the pasture with the two resident friendly cows. There is more than sufficient seating for everyone throughout the house, couches and comfy chairs, everywhere, especially in the living room/library! We were three generations under the Knocarrig roof who all felt it was one of the best experiences we’ve ever had. If you are fortunate enough to visit Ireland, you could not find a more perfect spot, located on The Ring of Kerry and a short drive to the Dingle Peninsula.

Absolutely GORGEOUS home in the perfect location! Noelle is the best host! Noelle's incredible home is just minutes outside Killarney. Noelle met my husband and I and our three adult children at the house. She couldn't have been kinder. She had a basket with coffee, scones, bread, butter, tea, milk, etc... It was perfect. Modern appliances throughout the house. Each bedroom was en-suite and decorated beautifully. We didn't want to leave. I wish we booked more days. We went hiking in Killarney National Park and took day trips. We really couldn't wait to get back to the house. It was so relaxing. I can't recommend this place enough. You will not be disappointed. To top it off------my daughter left her wallet at the house and Noelle communicated with her right away. Noelle, kindly, sent her wallet back the States. Thank you, Noelle!!! We are so grateful. She really went above and beyond what a host would do. She's fantastic. Don't miss booking this place!!

Perfect home in a perfect location- Highly recommend! What a beautiful home! Noelle has gone above and beyond to make this home not only beautiful but very welcoming. She has thought of everything! From bathrobes in every bedroom to a thermos for coffee on the road. And I can't say enough about the wonderful welcoming basket of scones, bread, butter, coffee, milk and wine! How wonderful to be able to come in from our long drive and not have to worry about running to the grocery store for essentials. The house is exactly as shown. Every bedroom is beautifully done. The property is very close to town and Killarney is an easy drive to the Ring of Kerry and the Dingle. We stayed 3 nights. I wish we had been able to stay longer. There is so much to do in this area. My adult kids LOVED the cows in the pasture. We enjoyed our morning coffee on the patio next to the pasture. Noelle is so easy to work with while planning your trip. She answered quickly whenever I had a question and checked in with us while we were there. Thank you, Noelle, for making our visit so memorable!

Our family spent a week at Knockcarrig House this April. We were a group of as many as 9. This home was truly more than a "home away from home". The house was immaculate, with all bedrooms having an en suite bathroom facilities. We were less than 5 minutes from Killarney Center. Noelle was a gracious host and accommodating in every way. My mother of 85 years accompanied us on the trip and Noelle was kind enough to allow us to check in early to accommodate her after a long flight. She quickly responded to all of our needs and questions(especially when we locked ourselves out!). The home lacked nothing! Having a washer and dryer available was a bonus! We were able to have a few dinners at home instead of going out to eat and we all enjoyed sitting around the spacious dining table and playing games after dinner and discussing our day of sightseeing! We could not have had a more relaxing and enjoyable stay. Thank you, Noelle and Paudie. Having Knockarrig House to spend our time in Killarney made our trip even more memorable!

I cannot recommend enough this place. Noelle is a wonderful host, amazingly helpful, and very communicative. We traveled with 9 (5 couples) of us. This was the perfect base for us to explore the region. The house offers all the facilities you would need. We found the place comfortable, spacious - the kitchen and dining room have had a lot of space and was fully stocked with everything we needed. Add in the fact that you have the bonus entertainment of watching cows over the fence playing while you have a meal. Each room had its own washroom that was clean. The living room had a tv with dvd player, books of the region and even some games for the family. The location had the right mix of off the path that we could rest but still close enough that we could get where we needed to and tour the are. Completely recommended

We have booked a lot of holiday houses around Europe and in the US but never had such a lovely, fully equipped house. Everything looks brand new. The area of Killarney offers a lot of activities and is a perfect place to discover the Ring of Kerry or the Dingle Pensinsula. We can fully recommend this lovely house and its landlord Noelle

Maison récente, magnifique, très spacieuse et dans le style de la région et les photos sont très fidèles à la réalité. Calme et entourée de prés avec des lapins . Très propre. Situation parfaite pour visiter la région de Killarney. Equipement des salles de bains et de la cuisine au top. Barbecue extérieur, produits de salle de bains, peignoirs de bains et séchoirs présents... Accueil chaleureux avec cadeaux de bienvenue. Excellent souvenir de vacances.

Delightful and beautiful home. Our group of seven adults enjoyed ourselves immensely in this elegant and spacious home. Noelle has thought of everything right down to bathrobes in every ensuite bedroom. The gourmet kitchen and separate dining room areas served as great gathering spaces for everyone. Noelle was great to work with , did everything she said she would in an efficient and courteous manner. Thanks Noelle!!! Greg- USA

This was a perfect place to enjoy the Irish countryside with family and friends. Everything that is in the listing was delivered as promised. A smart, clean, comfortable and functional layout. Noelle was there to greet us and was responsive to any requests that we had. Not that we had many, she's thought of everything. A 5 minute ride to the market and 10 minute ride to town. I can't wait to return. Thanks Noelle!!

We spend a wonderful week in Knockcarrig House. There were 8 adults and 3 small kids in our group, and the house had plenty of room for us all. Every detail has been thought of - house is really well equipped with everything you need, and Noelle thoughtfully provides all the extras. A lovely hamper was waiting for us with all the essentials (and some treats like home baked scones and much needed wine!).
The house is spacious, with a really great dining room for a large group. The sitting room library is excellent, and a great selection of DVDs are provided (which was great for the kids and tired parents). All the bedrooms are a great size, and the house is finished to a high standard throughout.
Location-wise it really is perfect for exploring. Its two minutes drive from Killarney, and gives great access to all of Kerry. Really convenient but with the privacy of a large house in the country.
Would definitely recommend a stay here. Wish we were still there!
