Upon arriving at Lissyclearig Cottage, you are immediately struck by the cottage and surrounding garden, alot of love and imagination has gone into this B&B. I also received a most delightful welcome from a lovely young chocolate Labrador :-) Carmel, the lady of the house welcomed me with a pot of tea and some fruit-cake, which was a thoughtful touch...

The cottage was Devine as was the hostess and the home cooked breakfast. It was a little out of town but if you have a car that's no big deal. Rooms were clean could do with a bit of an update but loved staying here anyway.

Lots of oohs and aahs as we drove up. The place is so charming. The "lady of the house" (can't remember her name) was charming, helpful, and delightful. Our rooms were small, the bathroom slightly "not clean". But the beds were comfortable and it was very quiet. Internet didn't work and phone service was sketchy.

Only 3 Kms from Kenmare, we had dinner at a restaurant in Town. Not to most welcoming hosts: Never even saw Davey! We chose the Dingle Peninsula to drive around, then the Cliffs of Mohr. A good breakfast served.

I chose this place because it was unique and away from the town. It turned out to be the most wonderfully creative oasis I could have found. Carmel was a joy and fed us a wonderful breakfast. Her husband is the creative genius who built the house, walls, most of the furniture, and all the fun sculptures in the garden.... More

Very unique style house with beautiful gardens and personal touches throughout. Small jaunt, about 3 km, from town which is a nice walk after sitting all day, but since the road is so narrow I would probably recommend driving into town for dinner. We were unable to stay for breakfast as we had to get an early start to Dingle.... More

One of the handful of thatched cottages in Ireland and was a cute place it is. Our room was clean and very nice. Breakfast was outstanding. Good home cooking style. Best place to start your Ring of Kerry trip. Remember, go counter clockwise to avoid having the tour buses coming right at you. For Dingle peninsula go clockwise. I will... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Lissyclearig Thatched Cottage. Cute cottage that the owner built himself. Beautiful wood throughout. Lovely yard. Plenty of parking. Good breakfast. Comfortable rooms. Very friendly and helpful with advice. The only downside was the WIFI was poor. Very difficult to get it in our rooms.

What a beautiful place to stay. Owners were so friendly and helpful with travel tips for the Ring of Kerry. The work they have put into this place was so evident. It was so quaint and charming and the breakfast was amazing. One of the best we've ever been served.
