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

We were at Tahilla Cove for a family celebration and all 12 of us came away with wonderful memories! An incredible location right on the sea, lovely rooms with huge windows looking out on the bay, a very good irish breakfast and a very special atmosphere. The kids had great fun in the canoes in the bay and we all... More

My husband, daughter and boyfriend spent 2 nights at Tahilla Cove in August and found it to be the absolute favorite of all our accommodations. The rooms were beautiful and spacious a balcony overlooking the bay. Sitting out there for coffee was a must, even with a little rain and some midges. It was just too beautiful not to enjoy!...

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
