For the three of us this was our first holiday in Ireland so we did a driving tour, staying at several guesthouses from Galway to Kinsale. We all agreed that next time we'd stay the week at Tahilla Cove. I had a large room in the main house with patio doors opening onto a terrace looking across the garden and... More

we were travelling round the ring of kerry last week and after passing through sneem started looking for a place to stay for the night and saw the sign for this place. By lucky chance I followed the sign, more out of curiosity than expectation to find a reasonable place to stay. We were two couples and we saw that... More

Road weary, we passed through crowded Kenmare onto the Ring of Kerry, hungry for vistas of the sea -- 18 kilometers later, frustrated by dense foliage, we came upon the sign, “Spectacular View - Guest Accommodation.” Down the winding drive, through a gate, in a word ... Spectacular! Gorgeous views across Kenmare Bay (inlet of the North Atlantic) to distant... More

Found this place by looking on google maps. I just followed the Ring of Kerry looking for B&B's that looked like a good place to stay. Little did I know I didn't find a good place to stay I found a great place to stay. My beautiful bride and I booked it for our honeymoon trip to Ireland. The hosts... More

This is the place to be if you'de like to experience how heaven must feel. Such a beautiful and unique experience. The whole place breathes history and an intens warm family energy. Everywhere (in our room, in the huge livingroom, the breakfast- and diningroom) you have a wonderful view on the bay, the beautiful garden, own pier ... The food... More

A totally unique experience in a beautiful seaside location. Spacious room with balcony overlooking the cove, great home cooked meals and welcoming and helpful hosts who achieve a perfect balance between the intimacy of sharing someone's home and the discretion of a good hotel.

My husband and I and our two children stayed here for 5 nights in July 2014. What can I say, my children were very sad upon our leaving. Our room, in a second house beside the main house, was completely private, from where you can stroll 10 steps down to the pier on the lake, my son had hours of... More

If staying on the Ring of Kerry, this is your spot. Lots of wonderful surprises here at Tahilla Cove. I guess my first surprise was palm trees in Ireland, I had to check the map to make sure I was still on the Emerald Isle. As others have mentioned, fantastic views, excellent proximity to Kenmare and the lovely village of... More

My wife and I stayed here the weekend of June 28th for 2 nights. We were attending a wedding at Parknasilla. As the title says, it was exactly what we wanted. The room is separate to the house which was a great bonus for us. It was like a hotel in the sense that you can come and go without... More
