A very cute and homey B & B. This is definitely a "lived-in" place (the owners put a lot of time and personal touches into things). Our room was comfortable, though the bed was a tad firm (not an issue for us, but some may not like it). Breakfast was delicious! As others mentioned, this B & B did not... More

This is a beautiful place, and obviously created and taken care of with love! Comfy bed, delicious breakfast, short drive into town and amazing flowers all around! Carmel has lots of books and maps to help with your sightseeing! Highly recommended!

We stayed here at the start of October for one night while we went to a wedding. I had contacted Carmel before hand and ask how far was the venue away from Lissyclearig Thatched cottage. She told me don't worry as that she could drop us there to collect out car in the morning or drop us that day to... More

Cozy and different, but modern and up to date as well. Carmel's daughter served us refreshments after our long day of touring. Room was comfortable although not large. Breakfast was very good, indeed. Parking is good and convenient to town without being crowded or noisy.

On the day we had booked it was very heavy rain falling. Check in was 15:00 so we left it until then to arrive. There was a car there so rang the bell several times but no answer. Meanwhile drenched my husband walked around to see if he could see anyone. We finally called on the phone only to have... More

This place is ridiculously cute. Although not a traditional cottage, it is charming, warm and comfortable. Breakfast was very good. The hosts were very friendly and made us feel welcome. We also felt it was a very good value for the area. We would stay again.

Having seen the thatched house online we weren't disappointed when we arrived at Lissyclearig. Carmel greeted us with a cuppa tea and porter cake which was delicious. We met Davey shortly after that and he set us straight with a plan to catch some mountain lake trout and the advice was perfect . The house itself is fab and some... More

This is our second time here, and we love it. This trip, we planned to walk the Kerry way from Kenmare to Killarney which is so close to this cottage. We felt very welcome by Carmel, and she remembered us. We arrived late evening, and Carmel kindly dropped us into town so we could see some music and have a... More

Stayed at this guest house with my husband and two kids last week. I couldn't rate it highly enough. What a gorgeous family and home. Carmel was so welcoming, her daughter Niamh brought the kids out to the garden a few times over the 3 days to see the quails and the hens and she also had them painting stones.... More
