My companion and I stumbled upon this fantastic B&B by chance, and what luck! In a country renowned for friendly folk, it takes a standout host to merit mention out of the ordinary, and Agnes is just that. Fair to say she is the epitome of hospitality and it is no exaggeration to say that stepping in to her house... More

As with all accommodation we have visited during a holiday in Ireland, we received the warmest of welcomes with the making of a cuppa and delicious cake on our arrival. Our room was quaint and perhaps slightly dated and sadly lacking in cleanliness in some areas, but the friendliness and helpfulness compensated for the few shortcomings within the accommodation. Wifi... More

We were hiking the Ring of Kerry and had the pleasure of spending an evening with Agnes and John, who graciously rescued us from an overzealous hike and kindly dropped us and our luggage at our next destination. Agnes cooked us a delicious dinner and provided us accommodations with an outstanding view. I would highly recommend Taobh Coille as a... More

We were travelling round the Ring of Kerry on bicycle and when we arrived we were met by the lovely Agnes who gave us a bowl if soup! B&B and room was lovely and big too! We were served a lovely breakfast. Caitlins Pub is a 5 min walk away which serves great food. We really enjoyed our stay at... More

My son and I stayed here on our trip to Ireland. I picked this place for location and the photo. I would return because of Agnes and John, they were the best. My 15 yr old son says he will NEVER forget Agnes and John. John is soft spoken with a great smile and makes a great breakfast. He gets... More

This was the best B&B we stayed in on our walk along the Kerry Way. After a very rainy day, wet to the bones, feeling cold we had (literally) the warmest welcome. John invited us to their kitchen and we had bowls of Agnes’ homemade soup (which she had made anticipating our needs after this days walk) and tea. To... More

Hey there, our names are Justine and Coleman! We stayed at Taobh Coille at the end of May, and it was just perfect. We arrived late after getting lost (Ireland driving can be a little wild for a novice, ha); but, the second we arrived, Agnes and John made us some soul-warming tea and gave advice for an adventure into...

Stayed here for the Second time again this year. John and Agnus are literally the Sweetest people on earth and I'm happy to call them my friends. You will not be sorry if you stay with them. From the amazing views outside the Diningroom windows, the walk down to the ocean, the lambs. Everything is just perfect here. Thank you... More

I cannot accept there is anyone in all of Ireland more welcoming and lovely than the hosts! Everything was lovely, the breakfast with fresh eggs from the farm, the room with a view of lambs (which kids might have the chance of feeding) and the location (with a short walk to the sea).

We have been in this classical B&B for some days (two families with 3 child). The panoramic view on the bay is intense, rooms are clean and comforting, rich Irish breakfast. Agnes (landlady) has been exceptional. She has treated us as a part of her family. We have also had the luck to see the shearings of the sheep done... More
