Fair Haven, VT
Best of Ireland
What an incredible opportunity we had when four of us rented the Irish Vacation House! We flew into Shannon, traveled north on day 1 to Galway & the Cliffs of Moher. Then we took day trips from the vacation house; we saw more than we believed possible, and returned each day to the comfort of this well-stocked home. Nothing was lacking; the neighbors who checked in saw to everything - even helping make reservations & acquiring info for us. After a most comfortable week in Camp, we set off to spend two nights at B&Bs;, then on to Dublin to finish up our sightseeing before flying out.
In our week and a half, we saw more than we would have believed possible. I tell every traveler I know to consider this rental and this intinerary to truly experience Ireland. We loved the pensinula itself, the local pubs, the beach near the house...nothing was a disappointment to us. Thanks so much to the Knapps for opening their home to us.
Wonderful Experience at Irish Vacation Home!
Four of us stayed at the Irish Vacation House.
We were thrilled with the house and the location, in between Tralee and the town of Dingle.
The location was perfect for day trips to Dingle, to the Blaskett Islands, Cloghane, Castle Gregory, and to Brandon Point.
There was great music closeby at Fitzerald's pub, in the town of Dingle, and in Cloghane. We took an archaelogical tour with Tim Collins which was wonderful.
The house is very comfortable, with a wonderful kitchen and amazing views, looking over a beautiful beach. Sheila and Seamus, our hosts, were welcoming and full of helpful information! There is also a book full of information, suggestions, and phone numbers.
It was a perfect vacation!
Absolutely best choice location, comfort and price-wise.
4 of us stayed at Irish Vacation House in august 2011. Perfect view of the Irish countryside right from the front door - sheep in the pasture, ocean a skip away! You hear the baaa baaa very gently at night. How Irish! Easy drive to Tralee, Dingle, etc. Right in the middle. Definitely need a car.
Owners leave a binder with suggestions of activities and sites with contact numbers.
Wash/dryer was so handy! Fully equipped kitchen. We are definitely recommending this vacation house to our friends and colleagues. Several from our work place have already visited.

We loved our Irish vacation!
The Irish Vacation house had everything we needed to feel at home during our stay. The facilities were comfortable, the hosts friendly, the location ideal, the view a dream. We even found the living room stocked with literature to help us plan our adventures! We especially enjoyed the local flavor: listening to music at the local pub, stepping out the door to hike portions of the Dingle Way, combing the beach. Perfectly located for day trips to Dingle, to Tralee with its roses, to the Blasket Islands, to Skellig Michael, to the archeological sites at Lough Gur and elsewhere on the peninsula, we returned each evening to our vacation home to relax and recharge. Our time was too short to do everything that called to us. We would return in a heartbeat to explore even more of this beautiful area.

Vacation of a lifetime!
My husband and I had the opportunity to visit Ireland for two weeks in late June/early July of 2008. We spent one week at the Knapp's Irish Vacation House in Camp, County Kerry. Our experience was wonderful! Not only was the weather beautiful, the house was very comfortable. It was very clean, nicely furnished,spacious and well equipped. All of our needs were met and more.
We were impressed by the local folks that we met throughout the week and appreciated learning about the local area and history. We enjoyed listening to local music at the Railway Pub; walking the beaches; witnessing beautifulsunsets on the deck at Fitzgerald's Pub or from the livingroom window of the house ; Sunday Mass at church; the staff at the local market or talking to the very helpful caretakers Sheila and Seamus. The openness and friendliness of all was heart warming.
Day trips from the Irish Vacation House were very easy - whether it was driving to Tralee to spend time in the Rose Gardens; touring and shopping in Dingle Town or the breath taking and historical ride around Slea Head or sunny Inch Strand. We missed the day trip to Cliff's of Moher due to circumstances beyond our control, but that would have been a great trip from the house as well. Next time.
We look forward to a return trip in 2011 and expect that trip to be as wonderful as the one in 2008.

A 180 degree gorgeous view in a well equipped home in one of the
All the comforts of home, within a few hours drive of some of the most beautiful scenery in Ireland. The locals are friendly and helpful. There are two pubs within a three minute walk, with live music a few nights a week. The Tralee Bay is out your front window, and the view is constantly changing.

Comfortable home with great views, thoughtful owners, and friend
The views from this house are beautiful in any weather. It is situated
midway between Tralee and Dingle which made it easy to explore
the Dingle Peninsula to the west and the Ring of Kerry and towns
further east and southeast. The beds were very comfortable; two of
the bedrooms had the same great views of the water, and the lounge
had large windows and a peat fireplace.
The eat-in kitchen had every modern appliance and gadget
imaginable. It would have been fun just to cook in that kitchen for a
week---but that would have meant not enjoying the many inspiring
places on the Dingle Peninsula. The thoughtful owners had even
provided a cell phone which could be used on the honor system. It
was easy to see that they had given much thought to the comfort
and needs of their guests.
We thoroughly enjoyed the visits and conversations (including tips
about great pubs, roads, etc) with the friendly local caretakers. They
made us feel at home and were so warm and welcoming.
Although only up a side road from the main road, Irish Vacation
House was very quiet and restful. The rates are very reasonable for a
home of this size. You will enjoy your holiday here.
