Stayed here for two nights, and so glad we did. It really helped break up the Ring of Kerry Drive. The weather was also not great during this portion of our trip, so the second night meant we were there when the sun did finally come out again. We stayed in a harbor view room on the first floor. It... More

What a great, laid back place to stay before and after my trip to the Skelligs. Monica was so hospitable and helpful, the room was clean and comfortable. And the breakfast was fantastic! It's a lovely 5 minute walk to the main street in Portmagee, has ample parking, and excellent views. It's well priced, however you can probably find places... More

The location is up the hill a bit from center of town offering a gorgeous view of the inlet and rugged coast. Brea head is just across the waterway and is an amazing backdrop right out the window. Quiet, very comfy bed. Great shower and bathroom. Modern and beautifully renovated inside. Breakfast is spot on and coffe is strong and... More

Monica, our lovely hostess, was wonderful! Although we were uncertain of the Heights location, she willingly directed us on the phone. At Portmagee Heights, they excel in costumer service. The beds were comfortable. The room was spacious and modern. The Wifi was great. And the breakfast was delicious. We would definitely recommend this place.

Portage Heights is a very nice up-to-date B&B. The rooms are well appointed, the showers work well, and the decor is clean and modern (a real change from the country manor house style of many Irish B&Bs). Your hostess, Monica, is very sweet and easy to work with. As the Rick Steves guidebook (yes, this B&B is recommended by Rick)... More

We had booked a self-catering cottage for six that was horrific! We were all tired and downcast and then while driving we saw Portmagee Heights. I called the number on the sign and Monica had three available rooms. As my husband says, "We went from hell to heaven!" Portmagee Heights was spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated, the breakfast was perfect! Best... More

We had a fabulous stay here. The hostess was able to get us tickets on a boat out to Skellig Michael on our first day there! Very accommodating, clean, and has great breakfasts! Room was spotless, had a great view, and location was extremely convenient for all activities on the Iveragh Penninsula.

My partner and I recently stayed at Portmagee Heights after we arrived in Portmagee at 9pm at night and found our booking.com accommodation didn't exist anymore! Booking.com's problem, not that if the accommodation. The lovely people that we booked through on booking.com had organised us alternative accommodation at Portmagee Heights which suited us perfectly! Monica was lovely even with us... More

Stayed here for 1 night. Lovely b&b. Eileen the owner is very welcoming. Our room was lovely, it was spotlessly clean and the bed was really comfy. It's in a good location with the town centre a 2 minute walk in one direction and 2 minute the other direction you have the York bar and amici Italian restaurant across the... More

Lots of the tourist traffic to Portmagee is as a starting-point for a trip across the Atlantic - the few miles out to the unique Skellig Michael. Portmagee Heights makes an excellent place to stop the night before (or after). It's a modern and very well run place. The B&B is situated a couple of minutes drive up the hill... More
