I have known a couple of B&Bs, but this has been the best so far. Booking via the website was absolutely hassle-free. When we arrived Ian made us feel welcome and served us tea and home made Banana-bread. The room was spacious, absolutely clean and well-kept and the view was fantastic. The bathroom was very tidy and had a great shower. We enjoyed a good sleep. The beds were very comfortable and fitted with duvets, which I really prefer to blankets.
In the morning we had a lovely Irish breakfast. There were also things like salmon and scrambled eggs on offer, but we decided to go for the traditional option, which was lovely. The brown bread was especially delicious!
There was a lot of happy family-life going on around the kitchen and conservatory and we met Ann (she had been out when we arrived) and found her a very nice and cheerful lady.
If I ever need accomodation around Cahersiveen again I will definitely return to Cul Draiochta.

Room Tip: The ocean view is fantastic!

On our trip round the Kerry Way we stayed here for three nights. Everything was perfect!
Our room was very comfortable and clean with an amazing view of the sea. The breakfast was delicious with a wide range of food. Our hosts, Ian and Ann, were very warm and welcoming. They organized our unforgettable boat trip to the Skelligs and gave us support and advice to make our stay as much comfortable as it could be.
All the best wishes to Ian, Ann and their family.
Highly recommended!

We had a room with sea view! Absolutely beautiful. The room was very very clean and cosy, shower was good. Everything was good in every detail. The landlord was super kind and helpful,she seems really enjoy running her business and especially like taking care of her guests. The breakfast was great too. All in all,we had a super pleasant experience here, and absolute recommend it.

We (4 adults) spent 3 nights at the Cul Draiochta (magic place/nook?) for a family reunion and loved it. Ann and Ian greeted us at the door and we always felt at home. The rooms were clean, spacious and comfortable and the breakfasts were delicious. If you are visiting the Ring of Kerry, or Valentia Island or Skellig Island, visit the town of Caherciveen and stay at the Cul Draiochta.

We and our friends stayed at some lovely B&B during our recent walk of the Kerry Way, but Ann and Ian's hospitality rises to the top. We stayed here two nights and found them most helpful and accommodating. Food was delicious, conversation stimulating, rooms very nice, grandchildren delightful, and Ian was a very generous chauffeur given the fact that we arrived on foot. This kind of connection is certainly one reason why we find travel so enjoyable.
