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

A guesthouse just outside Portmagee with a very prominent view of the harbour town IF you're blessed with the scarcity of good weather. The owner can't be more helpful and welcoming. They'll even book you on a boat to see the unmissable Skellig Michael. I'd be happy to give this a good recommendation on the basis of a very good... More

My mom and I stayed here and Monica was absolutely welcoming. The rooms are superb and the breakfast was behind superb. Monica also helped us with getting on a last minute boat trip to the Skellig islands. My mom and I agreed that this B&B was the best that we stayed in for our 2 week holiday. We will be... More

stayed here a while ago and got the loveliest of welcomes from Monica. It's a beautiful warm welcoming place . I saw a poor review and just had to write about our stay. Unsure what that person was drinking or where they stayed but it wasn't the same place I stayed in. Everything was top notch the beds are very... More

If you are looking for boutique style b+b then this is the place for you . We were a family of 4 cycling through Kerry and our welcome started out the road when a car pulled over and the lady of the house gave us the great news that we were nearly there. The rooms are designer quality and would... More
