My friend Gwen and I absolutely fell in love with Noel and Margaret. They went out of their way to make us feel welcome and cared for. Every time we wanted to go somewhere—mostly on Noel's great recommendations—he got a taxi for us, and made sure we would have a taxi back as well. And Margaret's scones have ruined us... More

Was in Sneem for a wedding and as only staying one night we decided to stay in a B&B, the one we originally phoned was fully booked due to the wedding but she gave us Noels number and we were glad she did. It was very central and a 10minute walk from the hotel. On arrival he greeted us –... More

This was the nicest BnB we've ever stayed in! It was a super adorable house with the most welcoming hosts we've ever met! They went above and beyond the job of regular hosts - helping us find transportation and acting as tour guides to the surrounding area. The breakfast was superb, with delicious tea and bread they brewed and baked... More

The owners of the Bank House B&B were delightful, you couldn't meet nicer people! We arrived to Sneem chancing our arm looking for a B&B for the night. Luckily, the owner of the B&B was so helpful and was able to confirm a cancellation to fit us in. The bed was so comfy and we had a great night's sleep!... More

We had an excellent stay in the Bank House in Sneem where the warmth of welcome was equalled by the ideal location in the heart of the bustling village of Sneem. This beautiful B&B has recently been renovated and has a quintessential Long Island feel to it. Noel kept us entertained with some great stories about the area and we... More

Very clean, beautiful and newly renovated B&B in a small, but lovely village in Kerry. Our room was very nice and the bathroom was small, but on a very high standart. Our hosts we're so friendly and the breakfast fast delicious! Definitely one of the top B&B's we've been to in Ireland!

My sister and I did the Kerry Way and where somewhat disappointetd that there hasn't been a hostel in Sneem. So we had no chance but take a B&B. Since our guide book recommended the Bank House, we decided to check in there. We didn't regret that choice. The owners, Noel and Margaret Harrington are lovely poeple, who made us... More

I was on a tour and had lunch at this quaint Bed & Breakfast. The lovely couple was so friendly. The light sandwiches were great. And the fresh scones were delicious. They were more than willing to share the recipe for the scones. And Wi-Fi was free with password.

Noel and Margaret were very welcoming and friendly however the guesthouse has seen better days. The room was very small but clean and the furnishings were bright and looked fairly new (except for the towels that were very thin.) The real downside was the ensuite - very tiny and carpet on the floor instead of tiles, even around the toilet!... More

From travelling around the Isles for many years, this a nice gem of a place from the heart felt welcome, the stories of themselves and Maureen o'hara to a great lunch and amazing scone, love it... you almost feel at home.
