We stayed at Strands End House for one night during our walk on the Kerry Way. When we arrived, Joan greeted us with a smile and offered us tea, and a beer. The house was beautiful, and our room was large, comfortable, and had everything we could have wanted-including a hair dryer. Joan was happy to give us a lift... More

Lovely property but there were some missteps . First, we were directed to the wrong room. It was after we had settled in, and other guests had taken our intended room, that we learned of this mistake made by the husband. Original room would have been much larger and more " grand." Next, when we returned from a very long... More

This B&B was on my Kerry Way route and I must say, you could not meet more obliging people. Very comfortable rooms and friendly service. Joan and Eamonn are more than willing to drop you into the town of Cahirciveen for the evening and pick you up afterwards. Cannot praise it highly enough😊

A perfect stay thanks to the charming hosts who went out of their way to make us welcome. Everything was fabulous. I suggest that a car is needed for restaurants as there is nothing in short walking distance.

Our stay at Strands End House was magnificent. Upon arrival we were greeted warmly by the lovely owners Joan & Emmon with their melodic Irish accents & their beautiful cat Sally. The hospitality we were shown was exceptional and exceeded our expectations. They went out of their way to make us comfortable and to make sure that all our needs... More

Having been let down by the place we were meant to stay, I turned up on Joan's doorstep about 7.30pm at night, desperate to find a place to stay for 8 nights. I feel I must have been guided to Joan and Eamonn's B&B, because they couldnt have been more caring or helpful. Joan quickly sorted out a room for... More

My family and I did a week-long traveling tour of Ireland, staying in a different B&B every night. Strands End is the only B&B we stayed in for 2 nights and we are glad we did! This B&B was magnitudes better than any of the other ones we stayed at across Ireland. Joan & Eamonn were amazing hosts, making sure... More

We had a great stay at Strands End! The breakfast was fantastic, the beds were very comfortable, and the room was large and very, very quiet. The downstairs social areas were very pleasant and "homey". But the highlight of the B&B is the Bowlers! Their entertaining conversation alone was worth the price we paid to stay. I really hope to...

We would be delighted for you to return and thanks for your kind review, I am sure it was Eamonn bombarded you with the gift of the gab, he must have kissed the Blarney Stone at some stage, I remember I could not get a word in. Glad you enjoyed your stay, and we look forward to meeting you again... More

We stayed here or two nights, the owners are simply amazing people. The Irish breakfast is honestly the best we had while Ireland. The husband is a true gentlemen, our only complaint is that the bed we had was very hard and we had no water in our room besides tap. However, it was worth the money to stay and... More

Sometimes you don't need to experience other places to know when you've been to the best and this has to be the best place to stay while in Cahersiveen. Clean. Great location. Amazing breakfast!!
