If not the best, Strand's End House is the BnB that we will remember the most from our stay in Ireland. Anyone can open a BnB but if the owners do not "print" their spirit in the atmosphere of the house, everything would be pretty much dry ... Having read previous reviews on it, it is what decided us to... More

In the course of our hiking tour on the Kerry Way, we got the opportunity to stay with Joan and Eamon (and Sally of course) at Strand's End House. We received a warm welcome being offered tea, coffee and cake. The bedroom and the bathroom were very comfortable and lovingly furnished. The fact that the house is located outside Cahersiveen...

We stayed here on our hike of the Kerry Way. Joan picked us up and Eamon dropped us off at trail heads, as well as driving us into town for dinner and a bit of sightseeing. Very gracious and helpful. Room was pleasant and comfortable and breakfast delicious.

We had a wonderful nights stay at the Strands End House! We were late to check in (got there around 8) but received a very friendly welcome and the offer of tea or other beverages. Our room was very clean and big which was great since we have little ones. The beds were comfortable and the breakfast was great! The... More

Eamonn picked us up and then he and Joan welcomed us when we first arrived and helped us dry out our boots. They served us tea and wonderful cake. He drove us to Frank's bar where we had dinner. In the morning they served us a fantastic breakfast. Then they arranged for us to have a tour with Mauris instead... More

Our kind host Joan went out of her way to collect us on the Kerry Way, despite the extra distance (we'd only made it as far Kels) she had drive. We were lucky to have one of her most spacious rooms, which felt more like a small apartment. The room had everything we needed and was lovely and quiet. As... More

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😊
