The Staigue was my home away from home when I was in Castle Cove. Sheila is an exceptionally genuine hostess who makes everyone feel welcome. I will miss the place, the people and the dog Runtie - well he's an added bonus.

Southern USA style building, on the Ring of Kerry, in a beautiful spot - the small hamlet of Castlecove between Sneem and Waterville. A friendly B&B. There 's a lively bar popular with the locals. Free wifi is provided.

The building is very old American style and has an interesting history. The proprietor, Sheila, is brilliant. She is welcoming, helpful, funny and interesting to speak with. Also they are celebrating their centenary this year. The rooms and windows and door and bathrooms are very old style but in good working order. There is a friendly female collie (I think... More

We loved the quaintness of the old home . Sheila was a fantastic hostess , even presenting us with a box of chocolates on our departure. We had a great stay and enjoyed meeting the locals over an evening drink . Would definitely recommend a stay here.

We burst into the shop, sopping wet after 5 hours on our motorbikes, begging Sheila for a room. She was very calm and handled the chaos exceedingly well :). We were soon roomed and warming up in a lovely old cast iron bath. That evening she volunteered to light the fire for us to help dry out our kit and... More

We will be back here - Sheila is the perfect host, the beds are wonderfully comfy and the cooked breakfast is fantastic with home grown tomatoes and the best white pudding in Ireland. Take the time while you are here to appreciate the building, with all its unique features and old world charm. It is an absolutely brilliant B&B in... More

Warmly welcomed by Sheila. Much appreciated tea, tart and biscuits were served to us in the upstairs 'library' after our 10pm arrival. My single bedroom was old style with sink, reading light, ample storage, warm bed, quiet and safe surroundings. Woke to birdsong. Breakfast included a variety of fresh fruits, juice, yogurts, cereals, beautifully cooked breakfast (sausages, eggs, black and... More

Wow, this is what the Irish Cead Mile Failte is all about. We found The Stague Fort Hotel almost by accident on August 14 while cruising "round the Ring" sussing things out before an upcoming wedding in nearby Waterville. The second we stepped inside the door, we knew we had found something so special. On inquiring about accomodation for the... More

Our third time at the Staigue Fort Hotel - and we shall return. This house simply has a very special charme. From the outside, it does look strangly out of place, more Scarlett O'Hara and Rhett Butler than the typical Kerry men, with its big porch facing the sea. Inside they also kept the old style intact, with the old... More

I stayed at the Staigue Fort Hotel with my girlfriend and had a fantastic laugh! The hotel bar was very friendly, lively and entertaining. Local musicians played for us, and drank with us, until the early hours. The bar was packed full of cheerful local Kerrymen and the atmosphere was great. The breakfast was tasty, rooms clean and comfy and... More
