Why Noelle Casey chose Killarney

Welcome to Knockcarrig House, Killarney, Ireland!

Here we offer a little bit of Irish country living in Killarney to holidaymakers. We built Knockcarrig on the edge of our private 20 acre cattle farm which is less than a 10 minute drive to the town centre of Killarney.

'Knockcarrig' comes from the Irish language which means hill of the stones. As farmers who feel an incredible link to the land, it was only fitting to call our house after the farm land on which it is found.

If you were to literally start digging in the fields, you would find plenty of stones in the earth! Traditionally these stones were then used to build walls to divide the fields of the farm. And as for the hill part- well if you were to walk from one end of the farm to the other, you would find yourself climbing a little hill which gives you a panoramic view of the magnificent McGillicuddy Reek mountains!

The Perfect Country Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 adults found this to be the perfect, beautifully maintained Country home with all the modern amenities you could ever want. Our hostess, Noelle, met us at the house and gave us a very thorough orientation. She also provided a very thoughtful and generous welcome basket including 2 kinds of wine, fresh bread & scones, coffee, milk, butter, chocolates etc. The house is a very short drive into the Town Center and is very accessible via taxi service. This house was great for couples because of the all en suite rooms. Noelle has thought of everything and her hospitality background has been put to good use in the house. We were a bit frustrated with the spotty WiFi internet access so just plan not to do any business while here. Relax and Enjoy the sights.

Beautiful and spacious house

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at Knockcarrig House. Noelle was really “on it” with communication and even gave directions to the property from 4 different airports! We had a welcome pack with coffee, bread, butter, wine etc and delicious scones which was above and beyond expectations.

The house itself is beautiful. Very tastefully decorated to a high spec. I wanted the “master bedroom” as I had done the organising but I honestly couldn’t decide which room was the nicest so just chose one with a bath! Beds were very comfortable with lovely linen. Every room has an en suite and the showers are hot and powerful. The bathrobes and hairdryers in each room are a great touch too.

Kitchen is fully equipped and everything had been thought about. Noelle even provided highchair, travel cot, change mat, wipes and nappy sacks for a friends baby.

The house is set back off a quiet road (the only thing is is that most taxi drivers struggle to find you without clear instructions!) and has a lovely outside area where we got to enjoy the sun (on a bank holiday weekend too!!).

All in all, we had a brilliant time and would have loved to have stayed longer. I would not hesitate to recommend the house and really can’t fault it at all. Thank you very much Noelle for a fab weekend!

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!

Knockcarrig Home exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! This beautiful home in Killarney was a great VRBO find, and exceeded our expectations!

It accommodated our group of ten, beautifully. The huge dining room allowed us all at one table, for the meals we made.

Bathrooms/showers in every bedroom. The home was stocked with everything, making it so convenient.

The location was perfect. Horseback riding in National Park just minutes down the road, as was the quaint town with shops and restaurants. And, Murphys Ice Cream, a must try, while downtown.

Day trips to Muckross, Ring of Kerry and Ring of Skellig all doable from here.

It was such a pleasure meeting the home owner, Noelle. Hospitality is definitely her forte. Great communication leading up to our check in.

She left us a beautiful welcome basket with so many local goodies. Grocery store very close, too.

We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to anyone looking in this area.

Spectacular house in pristine condition!!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful property in a beautiful area of Killarney. We so appreciated Noelle's attention to detail. The house was very clean, and came stocked with the essentials. Anytime we needed anything (at one time we needed the Internet "topped off"), Noelle immediately attended to it! Highly recommend this house, and would return if given the chance. You will enjoy your stay.

The perfect hideaway in Killarney!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 3 nights, 8 of us and Noelle thought of everything. The house is beautiful, everything new, a bathroom in each bedroom. Very comfy beds as well and towel warmers! We loved our curious neighbors (the cows) and the added little touches(a beautiful welcome basket with fresh scones and brown bread, coffee and tea and so much more!) Just a few minutes and your in the heart of Killarney. Very highly recommended!!
