“A little piece of paradise! First of all I thought the property was named Barrastaile. I hadn’t heard of Killarney Vista. Whatever the name though, the property was amazing. Olive, the lovely host, met us and showed us around her lovely home. She had even left us some little cakes to welcome us. The house itself was spotlessly clean, warm and cosy. The Kitchen was large and fully equipped. The lounge room was furnished with Comfy furniture and an open fire and the best part a fabulous panoramic view. Also the bed was very comfortable and the shower was good. Although we didn’t use it there was a very large bath in another bathroom. The house is ideally placed to explore the Connemara area. Very smooth rental process, good communication. Everything as described or better. We would not hesitate to recommend Olives Self catering accommodation. Thank you Olive for a wonderful experience.” Tony and Lee April 2018
