I think you will enjoy it more if you go on June 1 or after.<BR>

Sue - <BR>We stayed @ Lakeland Cottages in Killarney in November,, it was acutally our 2nd time. Our first was w/my 70 year old mother-in-law for her 70th birthday. I beleive that all of the cottages have a masterbed room on the first floor. give Brian a shout and see if he has anything available. <BR>Post a note and I'll be glad to help you.<BR>-Karan

Sue:<BR><BR>I don't agree with xxx, the further into late May and June you get, the more crowded. I travel in May most years and earlier in the month is always better. Most posters here agree that May and September are the best months.<BR><BR>It's hard to recommend places to stay if we don't know what areas you want to spend longer periods (self catering) and shorter periods (B&amp;Bs) in. Give us an idea of your itinerary and I'm sure you will get a lot of suggestions. Be aware that many self catering locations won't let you rent for less than 7 days (Sat - Sat), particularly in shoulder and high seasons. Also, many of them are already booked. I checked a website last month for a self catering and they were booked April through September. Yikes.<BR><BR>Bill

Check out or for self catering in the South West.<BR><BR>We stayed at Harvey's Dock in Youghal and really enjoyed it there . The holiday Suites are located out on te water and the first thing you hear when yu wake in the morning is the water.
