South-west Kerry is probably one of Ireland's most traveled and most popular routes.Tourists flock to the area by car, bus or bike to see both the Dingle peninsula and the ring of Kerry. In fact, the question in many hostelries is ''did you do the Ring?' On the journey, a stop off in Caherciveen leads to Quinlan & Cooke Boutique Townhouse, owned by Andrew and Kate Cooke. The pair are well established in business in the village as the owners of QC's Seafood Restaurant and Bar. They bring their sense of style and experience in hospitality to Quinlan & Cooke Boutique Townhouse. A complete renovation of one of the villages old residences has led to a superlatively designed accommodation where guests have comfort of stay and privacy. This isn't like a hotel stay.
