“We had a really nice stay at Eoin's. The house is fantastic! It's very bright, modern and beautifully decorated. It was like stepping into a "Better Homes & Gardens" magazine. The layout is really pleasing, with large windows highlighting the distant mountains. It is very spacious - large bedrooms & baths, a gourmet kitchen, huge laundry room, cozy living room and large dining table. The house truly is just steps from a gorgeous beach. At low tide one can walk for miles along the shore (which I did, nearly to Cromane). The location is at the end of a small lane, far from the main road so difficult to access without a car, but it's quiet and peaceful. Eoin provided really complete information about the house and they were very responsive when we were trying to sort out the wifi. We also appreciate that they were flexible when our plans became a bit jumbled at the last minute. All in all it was an excellent exchange and we are grateful to Eoin and his whole family for being such generous and gracious hosts! We highly recommend this beautiful home to anyone who wants to explore the Ring of Kerry, Killarney National Park, The Iveraugh & Dingle Peninsulas and beyond. The only caveat is that we were unaware until we arrived, that the parent's home is actually an attached dwelling & outdoor areas were shared. This did NOT detract from our stay, in fact his parents were absolutely wonderful to us! They went out of their way to make us feel at home - even gave us a lift a couple of times! They could not have been nicer, and we were very happy to have gotten to know them. I mention it only because it might be an issue for someone seeking complete privacy. ”
“We had a lovely stay at Eoin's house. He made us feel very welcome by showing us around when we arrived, leaving fresh flowers and the delicious local apple pie. The communication throughout our stay was perfect and he gave many suggestions on exploring the area. There is a lot to see and do, the west coast of Ireland is beautiful, and we loved climbing its highest mountain with a guide. Thank you for having us Eoin!”
“We had a terrific time in Dooks, the setting next to the beach and just opposite the Inch Strand is magic. The Ring of Kerry and Dingle peninsula are on the doorstep and we were blessed with good weather. Eoin was away on holiday but everything was fully explained and Paul the neighbour was most helpful and a fund of local knowledge. The house was extremely comfortable and we just relaxed and enjoyed. Thanks Eoin”
“We couldn’t of asked for better guests than Eoin and his family. They were friendly, courteous and a delight to host. We thoroughly enjoyed meeting and spending time with them during their stay. Our children and theirs played very nicely together and this made their stay even more lovely.”
Where is it?
Dooks is a beautiful relaxing spot to get away from the world. Lots of hiking, beaching walking, sight seeing and great restaurants nearby.
