3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2009

Stayed here for a night in July, location is very central so the only parking is on the public street.Nice friendly greeting from owner. Stayed in a front bedroom which was large and spacious but a little dated with furniture and bedclothes from the 70's. Breakfast was freshly cooked and plenty of it. Overall you could do worse as the location is excellent if you want to visit some local pubs within walking distance.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2009

We stayed in O'Shea's B+B in Caherciveen last weekend. It was our 3rd B+B of that weekend in Kerry and definitely the worst of the lot. There are a few rooms that looked slightly more modern at the front of the B+B but we were given a back room which had a bathroom next door. Two VERY old single beds, wafer thin matress, plastic pee protection sheet under the botton sheet (what the hell???), and mismatching old sheets on the bed. The heating did not work and despite asking many of the staff this was never recified. The carpets were old the room was cold and damp. Bathroom was from the 50's and towels were threadbare.

Breakfast was the last shocker. Cheap and nasty bacon, sausages and eggs (and I normally love Full Irish BF!!). Despite being first down for breakfast when the dining room opened, the fried eggs were hard as they'd been cooked an hour before. VERY VERY lame. This B+B would do well to check out what the competition are doing. A seriously overpriced 30EUR per person.

On a side note, I wouldn't rate Caherciveen as a place to stay next time. Either stop off earlier for a place to stay, or keep on going. Waterville is a lot more scenic!

We stayed at O'Sheas B&B in Feb 2008 for three nights. Our room was large, comfortable and clean. We found the O'Sheas very friendly and helpful with information and directions. They fixed us a delicious traditional Irish Breakfast, but for those who wanted something different, there were other choices.

We are going back to County Kerry, Ireland next month and plan to say witht hem again while we visit family in the area.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2006

My husband and I stayed at O'Shea's last week (May 2006) and it was great. Our room had a view of the bay. The building is not much to look at on the outside, and the rooms nothing fancy, but very clean and comfortable. The proprietor was very friendly and gave us advice on where to go out to hear music and eat a nice meal. He must be quite a talented runner because his living room is full of his medals from running! The breakfast was also delicious, but the standard traditional Irish breakfast. All was a bargain for 60 euros. You can find it on --- (according to his business card). Also very quiet - no sounds from the neighbors and we knew it was a full house that night.
