We had a marvellous stay at this beautiful B and B. The owner, Jackie, could not have been more warm and welcoming. The breakfasts are to die for! The rooms and spacious and clean, with great views of the area. Comfy beds and lovely en suites. We all loved it here.

Our family stayed here for 4 nights in early July. Jackie was incredibly warm and welcoming from the moment we came in. The rooms were delightful and immaculate, we had plenty of space for our 12 month old and a small fridge which was perfect to store her milk. The daily breakfasts were delicious! I normally don't like staying in... More

We were greeted by Jackie on arrival and shown to our rooms and from there to the guest sitting room and breakfast room. I stayed here with my Sister and Brother in Law. Our rooms were very clean and tastefully furnished. There is tea and coffee making facilities in the room along with a t.v. We asked Jackie for directions... More

This Bed and Breakfast has to be the best kept secret in all of Ireland. As a small sign hides it neatly and quite literally as a LARGER sign is being worked on as we write this. I have to say that my wife and I met the Hostess (Jackie or Jacky as I am not sure how she spelled... More

Stayed here for three nights recently. Couldn't rate the stay highly enough - from welcome by family, to accomodation not to mention the friendly host Jackie - whose breakfast is second to none. Better than most!!!! Choice superb. Thank You!! Hope to return.

We stayed here 2 nights in August 2013 (2 adults and 5 children ranging in age from 6 - 20). Jackie went above and beyond to make our stay special. We came in after a day of mountain climbing. The kids left their shoes and socks on the front porch because they were caked with mud. The next day, all... More

We cannot speak highly enough of this Bed and Breakfast. Ballinskelligs is the shy sister of the Ring of Kerry but we feel the more attractive with a stunning beach, wonderfully safe for swimming and a good choice of eating houses both in Waterville and Portmagee. The breakfasts are hard to beat and the house is immaculate. The hostess, Jackie,... More

We stayed here for one night and I must say, it was one of the friendliest and most stylish B&B's I ever visited. Jackie was wonderful, nothing was too much trouble for her. She went way above and beyond the call of duty in assisting us with our many queries about Ballinaskelligs and it 's many attractions. Great Breakfast to... More

From the friendly welcome by Jackie at the front door on our arrival, we knew we had found the right place. Other travellers have taken care to detail what makes Tig an Rince a great place to stay and we can fully endorse every aspect. Jackie served up the best breakfast we had in Ireland and I can vouch for... More
