“Basic B&B with shared bathroom”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2013

This is a well located B&B just 5 minutes walk to a beautiful beach. Rooms are not ensuite and have shared bathroom and toilet facilities. On the bathroom, there was no hooks on which to hang clothes - an absolute necessity in a shared bathroom. Breakfast, while otherwise unremarkable, included freshly squeezed orange juice which was a nice touch. At €70 a night, we found the price a bit steep for a basic room without an ensuite.

Christy was really nice and helpful and easy-going, explaining all we could do in this wild and very beautiful area of southwest Ireland. The room was marvelous, had an excellent (shared) bathroom and lovely breakfast.
A nice pub with a great sea view terrace was just in walking distance and an excellent gourmet restaurant just 15 mins away in Waterville (Dooleys)
We really would have loved to stay longer, hence we will come back!

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.
