“Could NOT be better!!!”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

I am currently sitting in the front room of the Island Heights B&B, and Mary Anne is making me some mint tea from her garden because my tummy is complaining! I can't imagine feeling more at home any place in the world. Great "service," but more like being adopted into the family. Mary Anne and her husband Eamonn and their daughter Helene have made me feel as if I lived here, and my daughter too!! Great beds, great bathroom, wonderful little village, and best of all, Mary Anne and Eamonn. Immaculate is the only word that fits the way Mary Anne keeps her house. Everything everyone else says about how wonderful it is, is true times 100!! GREAT food. I ate a scone the first night, although I'm meant to be gluten free, and they are to die for!! I will be back, without a doubt, and this is where I will stay!!

Room Tip: There is no fitness center, but the walk to town makes you fit!! We've walked everywhere!!

I have just returned home today after spending a totally luxurious week being totally spoilt in Mary-Anne's beautiful,warm ,friendly and most welcoming beautiful,immaculate& very homely bed & breakfast ,I would stay there again tomorrow with no hesitation what-so ever!!.
on arrival I was greeted in a very warm welcoming manner by both Mary-Anne & Eamon &they simply could not do enough to help since day 1.
Mary Anne is a very homely,friendly genuine and very sincere lady.The home baking of bakes such as scones and cakes is outstanding and is done daily with much pride and love and a lot of thought and real dedication put in to it all.The breakfast is certainly worth getting out of bed for,a varied range of yoghurt's,cereals,fruit juices ,traditional irish breakfast ,consisting of eggs,bacon,sausages,black pudding,white pudding ,beans,toast and such generousity that you'd find it hard to beat/match.Everyone is just made to feel so at home here.i wish both Mary -Anne & Eamon so well for they truly deserve nothing but the very best until i return later on again this year with the knowledgethat my family & I are going to be so well looked after during our stay.
the house itself is gorgeous and a very traditional cosy home.decor is superb!..a great nights rest is guaranteed too ,most importantly.Beds very warm and comfortable and a peaceful location....looking forward to going back already.A 5* b&b that i simply couldnt find a simple thing wrong with....enormous respect to you both and well done!!!!!.xxx

Island Heights is a 'home' away from 'home. The friendliest welcome you could wish for.

May-Anne Breen and her family make your feel so welcome and part of their family. They are extraordinary.

The breakfast is quite literally the best we have ever tasted. It keeps you going all day long. The freshly baked scones and numerous cakes are like something from a French patisserie.

The rooms are beautifully clean and the bathrooms spotless. What more could anyone ask for?

Great job, Mary-Anne, amazing high standard and thank you for making our stay such an enjoyable, comfortable and relaxing experience. Simply the best bed and breakfast in Kerry, probably Ireland and possibly the world!

I have never stayed in such a lovely, homely B&B, Mary Anne is magic so warm and friendly and what a cook. We we’re thoroughly spoilt, we came to trace my husband’s relatives that had passed away and Mary Anne knew them and one that is still alive. We will be going back in the summer and will stay here for sure. Recommend this to everyone to stay and just a short walk from the town. Thanks to Mary Anne for making our stay magnificent.

I love this B&B and have long intended to write a review. I was a tour guide for many years and stayed with Mary Anne Breen at Island Heights every time I was in Castleisland and also during the great trad music festival there each Oct. Mary Anne is a great cook and makes home made scones and cakes that she offers to every guest. Her hospitality is unbeatable. The house is within walking distance of town, the rooms are clean warm and most comfortable. She has so many repeat guests and business people and prices are great. She is often full so doesn't really need these good reviews but I want to let other travellers know about this gem of a hardworking kind woman.

Room Tip: All the rooms I saw/tried were just great.

We stayed here last July 2012 and completely forgot to write my review. This was our first stop on our 2 week trip. Didn't realize we would have the best stay on our first night. Mary Anne was great to all of us from the get go. Very friendly and we felt right at home. The rooms were great. Clean, comfortable, and quiet at night. I would highly recommend staying here if you have the chance. There is no beating this place. Thanks Mary Anne!!!

We stayed here several times when travelling from Kerry airport. Each and every time, we looked forward to Mary- Anne's exceptional hospitality. Her breakfast's were better than any we've had anywhere else, make sure you try a delicious homemade scone!! Thank you Mary- Anne, can't wait for our next stay!
