We stayed in O'Shea's B+B in Caherciveen last weekend. It was our 3rd B+B of that weekend in Kerry and definitely the worst of the lot. There are a few rooms that looked slightly more modern at the front of the B+B but we were given a back room which had a bathroom next door. Two VERY old single beds, wafer thin matress, plastic pee protection sheet under the botton sheet (what the hell???), and mismatching old sheets on the bed. The heating did not work and despite asking many of the staff this was never recified. The carpets were old the room was cold and damp. Bathroom was from the 50's and towels were threadbare.
Breakfast was the last shocker. Cheap and nasty bacon, sausages and eggs (and I normally love Full Irish BF!!). Despite being first down for breakfast when the dining room opened, the fried eggs were hard as they'd been cooked an hour before. VERY VERY lame. This B+B would do well to check out what the competition are doing. A seriously overpriced 30EUR per person.
On a side note, I wouldn't rate Caherciveen as a place to stay next time. Either stop off earlier for a place to stay, or keep on going. Waterville is a lot more scenic!
