1 night stay at this beautiful B&B was too short to do it justice.Situated right by the beach this is the perfect place to relax. Hosts are fantastic (Bridie is a star!) & the bedroom views of the sandy beach cove and surrounding countryside are amazing. Our bedroom beautifully furnished & comfortable.Perfect stopover if doing Ring of Kerry tour. Portmagee... More

Beach Cove was amazing - as was Bridie! She had a whole little 2-bedroom apartment set aside for us 2 adults and 2 teenage children, which was perfect. Our son went and swam in the ocean which is essentially at your front door. Breakfast was delicious. Cannot recommend more highly!

Lovely stay, felt refreshed to the core! The rooms have the best view of the ocean one could ever hope for! The owner is a dream to work with--so helpful and kind. Great breakfast, spotless rooms, décor was just superb. I felt like a princess!

My friend and I recently spent two nights at this wonderful B&B and loved it! Located just across the road from St. Finian's Bay, we thoroughly enjoyed walking over to enjoy the waves and the beauty of the area. Our hostess, Bridie, was so friendly and helpful, and she even catered to our dietary restrictions and made us delicious breakfasts.... More

My wife and I came here on our honeymoon and it didn't start out great after blowing our tire literally a couple blocks from the Beach Cove. However, Bridie and her friend Mary were eager to help us by phoning the local garage and arranging to have our rental car serviced. That was the kind of hospitality we experienced during... More

We stayed here on our trip to Ireland and Scotland recently. The room was large and clean, the bed large and comfy and it looked out over the sea and we could see Skellig Michael in the distance. Breakfast the next morning was very yummy.

My 2 daughters and I stayed here in mid-April. The scenery was beautiful. We stayed in the separate quarters just behind the house. It was clean and spacious and had its own clothes washer and dryer, which was useful. The hosts were extremely friendly and very helpful with dinner recommendations and trying to get us a boat to the Skelligs... More
