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!

Extraordinary accommodation and host
Knockcarrig house did not disappoint. It is as attractive a place to stay as the pictures on VRBO suggest. It was well appointed and spotless. Noelle Casey is a host extraordinaire. From our first communication she was warm, welcoming and most helpful. (My only concern in booking was whether it was close enough to Killarney town and that was not an issue.). . We were a group of 8 well traveled women and we ALL enjoyed our stay.
Beautiful and comfortable property!
If I could give 10 stars for this lovely home, I would. The house is just beautiful, and so conveniently located to Killarney and the Ring of Kerry. Noelle is very welcoming, and she has thought of everything to make her guests happy and comfortable. We have stayed in many lovely homes over the years, but this was our absolute favorite. Thanks Noelle for a wonderful week at Knockcarrig House!
Wonderful house and experience!
We stayed at the house with another family and it was such a wonderful experience. We were a big group (9 in total), but there was plenty of space for all of us. The kitchen and eating area were especially nice and large, making eating times easy for so many people.
Noelle greeted us when we arrived at the house and gave us a thorough lay of the land, which was greatly appreciated. She even had a basket of goodies waiting for us, many of which we devoured right away after a long overseas flight and then drive to Killarney. Again, this little touch was greatly appreciated.
There were books for both adults and kids to enjoy, as well as games and puzzles. Our kids especially enjoyed their daily visits with the cows that live in the adjacent field. The front yard/garden was also large enough for the kids to play Gaelic football and tag with their cousins.
We will be back in Killarney, and would absolutely stay here again. Very highly recommended!
A lovely home with great surroundings.
A close drive to the town, a spacious home and would definitely stay again. Noelle was a lovely host and attended to all our needs.
We loved our stay in Noelle's beautiful home. Warm welcome by Noelle, large spacious (immaculate) rooms, every amenity provided, great location for visiting Ring of Kerry/Skellig. My first thoughts were 'this place is even better than the pictures'! Definitely a 10 and would highly recommend. Thank you Noelle!
