“hidden gem - beautiful location”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

we stayed here overnight and I have to say it exceeded expectations. The b&b was spotless and the location beautiful, breakfast looking out at the ocean, rooms very nice, and the owners really friendly and accomodating. I have been to kerry many times and its been a long time since I stayed in a b&b as we have a toddler, but this is somewhere I would definately return to and ballingskelligs is truely beautiful, an unspoiled wilderness.
Tip: if looking for a great restaurant head to 'the moorings' in portmagee..truely fantastic food.

We had a really nice 3 night stay at this B&B. The hosts were extremely welcoming, helpful and supplied us with with very practical local knowledge. They also booked our Skelligs boat for us so that we had a place guaranteed on it. The location is excellent, too. Only 15 minutes walk from the pier where the boat leaves. We also walked from the chocolate factory over Bolus Head back to the B&B which was a breathtaking experience thanks to the advice of the hosts.

Excellent Bed & Breakfast accommodation in Ballinskelligs. Great location near the village and the beach. Beautiful timber features in the house. Jacuzzi Bath. Mary helped us plan our trip to Skellig Michael island. Many thanks to Christy and Mary. We will be back again.

We stayed for just one night at this beautiful B&B. It is located about half way around the ring of Kerry and off the beaten path. It is the perfect location if you plan to visit the Skelig Rock. There is a small town near by and the hosts are very informative and helpful with planning you tour of the rock or just helping get around the area. They even set up the next B&B for us for the next night. The wood workmanship in this house was beautiful if your the type that appreciates that kind of thing. The breakfast was excellent. If you are looking to take your time going around the Ring and want to explore the Skelig rock, you can't go wrong with this B&B. Ron and Kim-N.J.9/28/12

We have stayed here twice and loved it each time Genuinely friendly and caring hosts. A beautiful spacious new house with a guest sitting room complete with fridge and microwave. And good cotton bed linen and fluffly white towels and a super shower. Freshly squeezed orange juice to start the delicious breakfast. And the rest of the breakfast was of very high quality. And very near the wonderful beach at Ballinskelligs.

We travelled as a family (2a & 2c) and were lucky enough to get an amazing family room here. The room was huge, with a king size double and 2 full size single beds. The en-suite was wonderful, the shower large and powerful. With a walk in wardrobe, this was everything we needed. The owners make this a warm and welcoming home and we loved being there. The house is beautifully modern but designed around the traditional Irish cottage concept. We will be staying here again. Highly, highly recommended.

I cannot say enough about the experience we had staying here at Seaside B & B. We arrived late in the evening in the off season when there wasn't much at all open. The owners were away and had a friend staying to mind the house but he let us in and called Mary, one of the owners, and she happily arranged for us to stay the night as she'd be arriving late that evening. So accommodating and hospitable!!

The house itself is incredible...like nothing we'd seen on our travels and our bedroom had beautiful views out toward the sea. We awoke the next morning to even MORE beautiful views and strolled just across the road for a sunrise walk on the beach and to the castle and abbey ruins. Mary cooked us an amazing breakfast and gave us lots of information on the area and turned us on to some excellent local musicians (who's CD we purchased later in the day!) We were quite sad to leave, as much because Ballinskelligs is a very special and beautiful community, but also because Mary made us feel as if we'd made a new friend. Staying here was without question a major highlight of our entire trip.

We will be back soon!!!
