“Fine option near the Valencia Ferry”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

Mostly we were left to ourselves. Generous with breakfast. Beautiful view of Valencia Harbour. We highly recommend The Point restaurant and pub right down the road. The B&B is not really near anything else.

Unfortunetly i had booked in for 5 nyts and only stayed 1. The lady found her way into our room after only a matter of hours of us going out, i wasn't happy at all, with the excuse that she needed to close a window, with all my personal belongings & i wasn't there, i felt she had no right to enter my room, not much point giving your guest a key when you allow yourself to go into their room, definetly won't return, i was very upset that she did this. Needless to say i left the very next Morning & went to alternative accommodation.

She also said that Breakfast was before 9AM, when you are on holiday you don't expect to be on such an early deadline. I can't comment on the breakfast as i didn't have any.

Room Tip: Would't recommend any room so i can't comment on this question

We chose Ferryview based on its location and good TripAdvisor reputation, and were not disappointed. It's just off the road linking the N70 to the Valentia ferry, and a couple of miles from Cahersiveen town. We found the location ideal: quiet at night, a beautiful view by day, and easy access to both the sights and practicalities such as shops and restaurants. There was even one pub, The Point, within walking distance. Our room was spacious and comfortable, breakfasts were excellent and our host both friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of Reenard point & Valentia.

My husband and I spent the first 4 nights of our trip to Ireland with this family. We were welcomed by their lovely daughter and then left pretty much on our own for the next few days. She also served our great breakfasts during this time. We were a little worried that we weren't seeing the owners but we finally got to meet the owner, Jim, at breakfast on day 4 and it turns out that his wife had been in the hospital the whole time we were there. We were amazed that he kept the booking and provided quality breakfasts while going to work and the hospital every day!

The room was wonderful, the view fantastic, and the location is right up the street from the ferry to Valencia. And there's a great restaurant right at the ferry, The Point, that's within walking distance to the B&B. Bring your flashlight for night walks.

We will be going back most definitely!

Room Tip: Rooms at the front face Valencia Island and the water.

Excellent B&B with fantastic views all around it.
Jim and Mary are lovely people running this B&B. They are very helpful and go out of their way to help people.
I let Jim know that we wanted to visit teh Skelling next day of our arraival and he had booked 2 places for us in Das Lavelle trips for myself and my husband.Since we didnt have a car he also arranged for the boatman to pick us up from the pier near his B&B!
Next day he himself dropped us to Waterville hotel since we didnt have a car with us..!
Have never met any better people on earth than them!
Our Room had lovely view of the bay from the window and the walk to the bay was so amazingly beautiful that we were awestruck by it..
Very nicely located B&B .
Thanks to Jim and Mary for making this trip so fantastic for us.

Our appreciation of Ferryview started even before we arrived. I let Mary know that we were hoping to take a trip to the Skellig islands during our stay, but that I wasn't sure if it would be possible since we were coming the first week of Ireland, which is often before boats start going out. She offered to book us a place prior to our arrival! The B&B is in a beautiful location on a kind of mini peninsula, so there are water views from both sides. We slept very well, and our room was very clean, and probably one of the largest we stayed in while in Ireland. The best part was that Mary had been able to book us a spot on Des Lavelle's boat trip to the Skelligs, and she even called to confirm the morning we were scheduled to go. We loved our stay at Ferryview and would love to go back.

I can not be more satisfied with my choice of accommodation during our vacation in Kerry. Lovely house, great hosts and perfect peaceful location for exploring Ring of Kerry and Valentia island. We had a great time, thanks!
