“Lovely bed and breakfast with a wonderful hostess”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Ard Na Coille is a lovely bed and breakfast in an affluent-appearing neighborhood. The room was clean, bright, and very attractive. The location is an easy 10-15 minute walk to Tralee. Breakfast was delicious,including fresh fruit and made-to-order French toast. The bed and breakfast owner, Sorcha, was a wonderful hostess, offering us tea or coffee and dessert and spending time talking with us when we arrived, in addition to later checking on whether or not there was anything else she could provide for our stay. Of all the bed and breakfasts in which we stayed, our room in this bed and breakfast was less isolated from the owner's family, so it was not as quiet as some of the other bed and breakfasts. However, with the warm welcome from Sorcha and the opportunity for interaction with the family, this was one of my favorite bed and breakfasts, with a definite 5 star rating. Thanks, Sorcha, for a very enjoyable stay!

Stayed here for three days. Sorcha and Colm were fantastic hosts. The house is in a quiet upscale area a few minutes from the downtown area of Tralee. It is ideally situated for excursions to the many nearby sights and attractions, sightseeing through Dingle and Killarney, surfing at Banna and Inch beaches, golf at the famed Tralee Links to name a few. The accommodations are are very comfortable, wifi is free, the breakfast excellent and varied. Can't say enough good about the whole experience. Their #1 status is well deserved.

One of the best places we stayed, Sorcha was great and we had fun chatting with her. The room was nice and bright and the breakfast was great. We enjoyed the walk into town and had a great time. We would stay here again.

Want to feel at home with an authentic Irish family this is the place. Welcomed by their daughter we were soon integrated into this young family and their beautiful home. Our room upstairs was roomy, bright and well cared for. Sorcha and her husband were wonderful hosts and provided service beyond expectation. Sorcha recommended a Drama that was being held that night and we learned so much about the Blasket Islands before we even say them the next day. We stayed two nights and each was relaxing and the Breakfast Porridge with Bailey's was special!

I can't say enough about this B&B, it's great location, gorgeous home and mostly, about the amazing, charming, welcoming hosts - Sorcha & Colm!!! OMG! We stayed in 4 B&B's while in Ireland and this was by FAR my favorite! Beautiful, modern home & rooms, wonderful food...we truly felt right at home. Please, please if you're in the area you MUST stay here.

Room Tip: Bring your own washcloth. Of the 4 B&B's we stayed at only one provided them. I know it'...

We really enjoyed our time in Tralee and being able to spend it with Sorcha. She is so full of energy and knowledgeable of Irish culture and history. The accommodations were bright and comfortable. The breakfast was also very good.

My sister and I traveled (from Australia) around Ireland for a short while before meeting other siblings in York to scatter our mother's ashes. From the moment we walked in Sorcha and family made us feel so welcome, ready with a cup of tea. A short walk into town for dinner, and back to comfortable beds and a good night's sleep. Next morning breakfast was the best we had the whole time we were away, freshest fruit and choices.
