“Great hospitality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2012

My friend and I have just returned home after a five night stay and we found it very quiet and peaceful. We were given tea and coffee and scones on arrival and Kitty was very welcoming and hospitable. The breakfast was great and the farmhouse is ideally situated to explore the ring of kerry and the dingle peninsula. The restaurant at Inch beach serves great meals and not too far away> The rooms are clean and nicely decorated and I would recommend this b and b to anyone.

We stayed one night at this lovely farmhouse. Kitty was an amazingly gracious hostess. When she found out this was an anniversary trip, she brought out two flutes of Bailey's while we were sitting by her fire. How thoughtful!!! Room and bath were spacious and very clean and tidy. Breakfast was wonderful. Kitty and her husband were delightful to talk with by the fire in the evening. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Almost stayed another night, but schedule did not permit. A super location for travelling Dingle. I highly recommend.

I stayed with my parents for 3 nights in August and we enjoyed our time in Palm Grove. This is a very lovely place, and very good base to explore Dingle Peninsula and not so far from Killarney.
The owner was very lovely and gave us some advices about visits. We recommande it.

We stayed at palm Grove after touring on the Dingle. It was a great place to stay to start our trip up to County Clare without the long drive off dingle Peninsula. Kitty was gracious and welcoming, and helpful in every way. We really enjoyed seeing the cows from the bedroom windows, and the quiet location was very restful. i enjoyed every minute of the stay, and Kitty could not have been nicer. I recommend Palm Grove highly, and would happily return there.

A trip to Ireland was hoped for by my grandmother, aunts, uncle, but never was realized. We were raised knowing that my great-grandparents had left parents that farmed, in County Kerry and County Roscommon. My great-grandmother had also left one brother. Geneology research found this to be true in the 1911 Irish Census. My sister and our daughters were so blessed to find and meet one of our cousins, Kitty Nagle and her husband, Pat, two of their children and even their beautiful grand-daughter, at The Palmgrove, a working dairy farm, in Castlemaine. We were scheduled to stay one night, but stayed for two. The farm is close to Killarney for the "main day tours" of the Ring of Kerry, Dingle, and the Gap of Dunloe. Kitty will not let you leave hungry, and her table holds loads of home-cooking, including homemade jam, and her beautiful roses are are both in and out of the house. Pat makes sure there is a cozy fire in the family room, and told us he loves it when guests asks to watch him milk the cows. For the Irish all over the world, that yearn to return to an Ireland, close to the one left by the Ol' folks...THE PALMGROVE...is calling to you.

It is off the beaten path (and most definitely a working farm), but still a good spot for exploring Dingle. If you go in the summer, the roses in the gardens are numerous and gorgeous. The ensuite baths are good sized, and Kitty's breakfast are custom-cooked.
