What a lovely bed and breakfast!
We came across it quite by chance on the ring of Beara road just outside Kenmare.
We liked the out of town location,you need a car to get to a lot of places in Ireland anyway. Can't understand the previous reviewer thinking it was too far out of town? I would say this was a positive aspect of the location; peace and quiet, fantastic view and central for all the attractions of ring of kerry, Beara and Killarney.
From the moment we set eyes on the place we were so pleased to have come across it;it was really nice,tastefully decorated and was finished with quality furnishings.
The room we stayed in was in the loft,sounds like the previous reviewer stayed in the same room too. I did not agree with their comments at all; i found the room to be lovely and charming. As far as the guest lounge was concerned it was a very welcome addition to the b&b and served its purpose over and above what you would normally expect from such a place;dvds,books,hot and cold beverages, cooler fridge, wine glasses and corkscrew, tv and dvd player comfortable chairs and a small window with a gigantic view of the hillside; pretty as a picture! The benefits of a seperate room to relax in are great for the family who may have children in bed or for those who want to relax away from the bedroom.
Breakfast is served in the lovely conservatory and is of good quality
and plentiful..no complaints about the food at all.
we were shown round the rest of the b&b by the owner upon our request, as we admired what a lovely home she had made. The other guest rooms were downstairs and had varying bed configurations and were just as nice as our own; again finished to a very high standard.
Outside there is parking for several cars and there is a patio area and bbq available for the guests to use.
This place is suitable for a whole range of travellers whos needs will be met more than adequately. Near by is Kenmare town, fishing, golf, horse riding, nature and boat trips, cycling, motor cycling, classic car enthusiasts, sightseeing and so much more..Special interest groups are more than welcome too; i was told that any help if needed to plan activities and routes would be available. The owners i gather are very experienced in travel around Ireland as they had holidayed consistenty there over a number of years before coming to Kenmare to live.
I would definately stay at this b&b again and would recommend it without hesitation. Well deserved praise and not deserving of the previous negative review.
