My husband and I and our three kids stayed at the West end Pier Cottage for one week this July. It was an unforgettable experience for us.
The Stone house is equiped with all you need, even a dish washer, a laundry machine, a fire place and games for the Kids and brochures and information of local attractions. Susannah has even put together some suggestions of trips around the area (we enjoyed the Skellig round trip), besides all useful information you can find in advance on the Westcove Web site. The friendlyness of the People is outstanding; Susannah the owner with her great hospitality, Katherine the manager who explained everything at site and by good look we had these very kind neighbours at the Est End Pier Cottage who even provided us wih freshly caught fish!
We found it ideally located directly besides the water for using the rowing boat and for shrimp catching, and at the ring of Kerry for trips. There are stores in Kenmare and small Shops in Sneem, West Cove and Cahardaniel which are open every day. We also loved the crumbles, pies and croissants from the nearby bakery and suggest the Blind Piper Pub for food and live music on Thursday evenings.
We highly recommend the lovely Pier Cottage and we hope to come back one day!

If you are looking for a remarkable Irish vacation Pier Cottage is the perfect choice. I wish to thank Susannah for the supportive and flexible booking, as well as Katherine for making us feel at home. It is difficult to say what was best; waking up to the sight and sounds of seals playing in the cove, the breathtaking view, the ideal location on the Ring of Kerry for shopping and sightseeing, or just the feeling of being at home sitting in front of an open fire. To say the least anyone staying at the Pier Cottage will leave with heavy heart and the intent to come back. Thank you for a fantastic vacation and we will see you in the future. Ward, Marlies and Steven
We booked the entire cottage, my wife and I and our 2 year old girl and invited my sister and her husband and their 18 month old boy to join us. It was ideal for sharing with another small family and a magical place for children. Hares grazing on the lawn, seals basking on the rocks, boats sailing by... and for adults direct access to the water where we swam and used our canoes and Kayaks every day. Also a local cafe/bakery 10 minutes walks away with amazing coffee and pastries. We got great weather so breakfast/dinner/lunch was served on the benches overlooking Kenmare bay. Traditional cottage with all you need for a holiday and perfect hostess locally.

Our family LOVES Pier Cottage. It is an incredible place to stay - we were there for 2 weeks in early September. Gathering yourself to get there is one thing, but BEING there is reward enough. From the excellent facilities (3 BR, 2BA, ocean right out the door) to the friendliness of the people (thank you, Susannah and Katherine), it all made for a memorable stay. There's a row boat you can use to get across the harbor mouth to a beautiful sandy beach (try at low tide, it's easier).
The cottage was clean and warm - internet worked just fine and the large kitchen had just about anything you'd need. Walk out the door and there's a stone beach, which our daughter clambered on several times daily to see what the tide left for her. Behind the cottage is another stone beach, also perfect for learning about tides, nature, and more. There's a fireplace to add to the atmosphere, laundry facilities, and thick stone walls to keep the rain out!
We learned about local markets (Kenmare, Sneem) and got glorious fresh fish and veggies for our meals. We traveled to Skellig Chocolate Company, and Portmagee for more fish. We enjoyed Derrynane beach (and horseback riding there, with Eagle Rock Equestrian Center), and Derrynane House (home of the Liberator, Daniel O'Connell). We got THE BEST croissants in the world from Jane Urquhart, right up the drive at Westcove Bakery. It was wonderful.
Only an hour from Kenmare or Killarney, Pier Cottage is ideally located to explore Co Kerry - but beware, the roads are tiny and winding! Mostly, we preferred to stay home and just absorb the beauty of the place. Westcove harbor has many small fishing and sailboats, some go out daily. There are seals out from shore on a rock, so find the binoculars - they are cool!
We LOVE Pier Cottage and highly recommend it. It would be perfect for a family or larger family gathering (rent both ends). Although it is an hour's drive to larger cities, for those families that just want to absorb the beauty of Ireland, this is the place. There is plenty to do locally, and plenty to do in your own back yard here. I can't recommend this place highly enough - unlimited stars!
