On the shore looking out thru flowered gardens, every star is earned and perhaps a few more than five. Just far enough off the Ring of Kerry to feel comfortable. One of the very pleasant places to relax and enjoy the change of tide.

The only problem with staying here is tearing yourself away from it - there are few more perfect views than from the rooms in Tahilla Cove and it is a real home away from home thanks to the attentive owners, James and Deirdre. The breakfasts are of a very high standard and beautifully presented. The bedrooms and en-suite bathrooms are... More

Tahilla Cove is in an absolutely beautiful setting by the bay and right on the water. The grounds are lovely with huge hydrangea bushes, palm trees, and other flowering bushes and plants. Our room was spacious with a view of the sea and a patio to sit and enjoy the view. A large bathroom as well. James is a wonderful,... More

Absolutely stunning location. Wonderful views and walks from your room. So peaceful, its tucked away near to the small village of Sneem but right on the coast opposite Rossmore Island. Comfy room with patio balcony overlooking the bay. James was a very warm and welcoming host and has so much information. We took his recommendation of a car ferry on... More

The only word to describe this place is lovely. The atmosphere is peaceful, the views breathtaking and the owners and staff completely wonderful. We stayed for two nights and were absolutely thrilled. The room was large and very clean and the breakfast was outstanding. The location is great - just about 15 minutes outside of Kenmare and about 5 minutes... More

My three night stay could not have been lovelier: Beautiful and peaceful setting, spacious rooms/bathroom and possibly the most comfortable beds in all of Ireland. Traveling solo, James was wonderfully helpful with suggestions when planning my daily excursions and adventures.

Recalling memories of last year, this was our second time to visit here. James and Deirdre you just have to meet, running their wonderful country retreat. The weather was ok but the welcome was sunny, the breakfast first class, delicious porridge with lavender honey. Fishing for shrimp down on the pier, happy times are created here. Happy to arrive, and... More

This was our second time at Tahilla Cove, and again, it was perfect in every way. not only is the scenery spectacular, the owners James and Deirdre are just wonderful. Our three year old daugther had her birthday while at Tahilla, and we were surprised at breakfast with a lovely card and pretty balloons! Then we blew her candles and... More

Rooms spacious and comfortable. Warm welcome from James. Lovely view of the cove from bedroom with direct access to a patio from which you can sit and enjoy the view or have a walk alongside the water. Breakfast made to order even down to choice of juice and cereal. Makes you feel quite pampered especially as the dining room also... More
