Wir waren im Mai in den "Woodlands"; so heißen die Doppelhaushälften im Parknasilla Resort. Die Lage ist wie beschrieben und erstklassig, um den Südwesten mit dem Ring of Kerry kennenzulernen. Unsere Unterkunft war geschmackvoll eingerichtet und sehr kompfortabel - allerdings sind deutliche Gebrauchsspuren nicht zu übersehen. Die Ausstattung der Küchenutensilien ist leider nicht auf 6 Personen ausgelegt, was bei 3 Schlafzimmern zu erwarten wäre. TV und WLAN funktionierten leider sehr unzuverlässig. Die abgeschottete Lage der "Woodlands" ist besonders beliebt bei jungen Familien; Kinder können ohne Einschränkungen herlich toben. Während unseres Aufenthaltes waren das dann bis zu 30 Kinder, die vor unserer Terasse Fußball spielten. Für ruhesuchende Naturliebhaber dann doch eher nichts! Insgesamt ist die Region um Sneem ein einziger Traum - Berge, Strände, Golfplätze und tolle, überaus freundliche Menschen! Restaurants und Pubs in der näheren Umgebung bieten eine gute Irische Küche.
