My husband and I stopped here while visiting the Ring of Kerry in Ireland. We loved this B and B. Carmel is a warm and exceptional hostess. She makes you feel as though she picked up the phone and personally invited you to stay at her home. The scenery around the house is gorgeous and the home is quaint and... More

We had 4 couples staying at Lissyclearig and our stay was fabulous. We had our evening meals there, and all the side dishes came from the garden and the desserts were decadent. Carmella took great care of us during our breakfast. I strongly recommend staying here. Kenmare is the perfect place to experience Ireland.

We just spent to nights there with Davey and Carmella. We loved it! Davey built all the furniture in the house and the food is excellent! We would stay there again in a heartbeat. It just a short 3 minute drive to town.

We had a lovely stay at this B&B the last two nights. The cottage is like something out of a fairy tale! The hostess was very accommodating and welcoming. The beds were on the hard-er side, but not super uncomfortable. Breakfast was great - the fresh eggs from the chickens on site were yummy! The drive to town was quick... More

Stayed in this b&b for a night. Room was lovely & Carmel was very welcoming. Would definitely come back but next time we'll bring the kids as they'd love the gardens with the hens and dog to play with!

Lissyclaerig is a thatched cottage that looks like it came straight out of a fairy tale. As we turned into the driveway, I expected the witch from Hansel & Gretel or Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs to walk out the front door. Carmel welcomed us with tea/coffee and biscuits and made us a great Irish breakfast each morning. She... More

Lissyclearig is a very charming thatched cottage, one of the few available as a B&B. Carmel is a wonderful host greeting us with their dog Mason with tea, biscuits and conversation. The rooms are spacious and comfortable with a rustic feel. Breakfast was excellent and served looking out onto the beautiful grounds. Carmel gave us a great recommendation for our... More

A treasure that I don't really want to share, this is a lovely thatched cottage that hides its age very well, you will be surprised at its age I promise you.Quirky but comfortable with good friendly attentive hosts and resident dog Mason, the breakfast is substantial and well cooked with eggs from own chickens in the garden. It is a... More

If you want a unique experience, stay at Lissyclearig Thatched Cottage. We loved the location and area. It truly is a quaint home. Carmen greeted us with tea and sweets upon our arrival, and took time to draw out a map for us with directions into Killarney. (40 minute drive, but SO beautiful!) Our room was somewhat small, but had... More
