About Ms Marcelle Gribbin

My husband and I are originally from Meath and Roscommon respectively, but we have lived in Malahide in Co Dublin since 1999. We are both solicitors. We have two children, aged 9 and 13.

Ms Marcelle Gribbin purchased this bungalow in 2018

Why Ms Marcelle Gribbin chose Waterville

We spent many years renting properties in Ireland for our holidays, and in particular in Kerry. Having tried out many of Kerry's most beautiful locations, we fell in love with Loher Beach House the first time we stayed there in 2009. We came back each year thereafter and when the then-owners lets us know that they were thinking of selling, we jumped at the chance. In our opinion (and indeed that of many others) you will not find a nicer home or location to spend your valuable time. This is a stand out place with stand out reviews to back it up.

What makes this bungalow unique

We know of no other holiday home with so many 5 star reviews from discerning travellers. Our beautiful house is luxuriously appointed throughout with superb proportions which means there is plenty of room for you all to relax in comfort and style. For example the lounge is 9m x 8m. As our mentioned in our reviews this is a home from home. To have all of this in such a stunning and yet convenient location overlooking the Wild Atlantic is very rare and why many of our customers return.

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful house is a spectacular location. The house was spotlessly clean and had everything you could need. We have stayed in many rental properties and this was by far the best equipped. The owners are very organised and have all the information you could need on the house and the surrounding areas. We both brought bikes and enjoyed many cycling trips. Fabulous holiday, we enjoyed every day. Highly recommended!

Stunning house in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Five ladies staying here, one in a wheelchair. We all had an amazing time.

Everything in the house is of a very high standard - the kitchen has all the equipment you could possibly need, the beds, sheets and towels top quality, and the light oak wood flooring and tables and chairs give a natural and warm feeling. The whole atmosphere of the house is spacious and yet cosy and welcoming.

John was so helpful during booking, in the weeks leading up to our trip, and then when we arrived - best way to get there, things to see, and how to get the best from the house.

We had great meals out locally, lunches and dinners - especially the Smugglers Inn and QC's. Everyone was very friendly and helpful on all our visits around Kerry, and we especially loved travelling around the Skerrig Ring for the views and places to see.

Overall we loved our holiday and definitely hope to return.

The house exceeded our expectations-the living areas were bright and spacious,with glorious views of the sea.

The fire was a welcome addition on cold evenings.

There are beautiful ,interesting walks from the house,and spectacular scenery within a short drive.

We will definitely return.

The big difference

  • 5 of 5

We have seen quite a few houses in Ireland and I must say, this house makes a difference. Very clean, bright, comfortable, dry (even in the cold and wet climate this summer), spacious are some of the words that come into my mind when I think about the house. The owners are very friendly, caring and helpful at all times. The pictures of the spectacular view speak for themselves. Our kids loved the garden which is beautifully arranged. We would definitely come back for our next stay.

It is on the ''Wild Atlantic Way ' and ideally located for touring the 'Ring of Kerry', Lots of great Beaches for combing or Surfing. Visit - Skellig Rocks, Daniel OConnell Museum and Gardens in Derrynane, Killarney National Park. The air is pure and the night skys are stunning, perfect for the astronomers amongst you as it is one of only 3 places in the World designated as 'Gold Tier International Dark Sky Reserve' . The area is steeped in history and you can take Boat Trips to the Skellig rocks to see how the Monks lived in the 12th century. Visit the Old Cable Station In Waterville from where the first transatlantic telephone cable ran. The Skellig RIng Tour is a must do and often overlooked. Spectacular panoramic views of the Skellig Rocks,Valentia Island and the Blasket Islands. Chocoholics can stop at the exclusive handmade chocolate factory and buy a solid Easter Egg.

Sea fishing is available from the rocks, beaches and boats. Fly fish for Bass, Sea Trout and Salmon in the Lough Currane system - best SeaTrout fishing in Europe.

Waterville benefits from two superb links courses which are frequented by the worlds top Golfers. Horse riding is available locally - Go on wonderful Scenic rides which include the beach

Other Activities: history tours to Skelligs rocks and the many ancient ring forts and abbeys

Golf: Two of the World's most stunning Links courses are situated within 2 miles.

Water ville Golf Links is ranked in the Worlds top 20 and Ireland top 5 Links courses. Links Land is a rarity and less than one percent of courses in both Ireland and the British Isles are championship Links. Water ville is one of these blessed places hence it regularly attracts the Worlds top golfers who test their mettle here. Golf at Water ville is a mystical experience - the beauty of classic links land, surrounded by the sea, yet forever changed and by the elements. At over 100 years old it is ranked as one of the top 5 courses in Ireland and the top 20 Links courses in the World. Links Golf combines sand dunes gorse and native grasses, firm fairways, sod faced bunkers and subtle putting surfaces all intertwined by the ever changing weather. Forget the lob wedge. Think bump and run creative shot making. Are you ready to are walk in the footsteps of the earliest golfers.

Skellig Bay Golf Course

Overlooking the magistic Ballinskelligs Bay and set among natural megalithic stonework and indigenous Bog Deal, there can be few places more visually stunning locations for a golf course than Skellig Bay Water ville,.

Here the awesome beauty of the Bay hits you as you play through holes framed by over 8000 yards of ancient 'famine' walls.'Skellig Bay is full of challenging golf holes', says the the Sunday Independent Golf correspondent Dermot Gillee
