“B&B in Portmagee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2013

This was a lovely place that is very close to Skellig Michael. The hostest, Tina Murphy, even made arrangements for us to take a boat trip to the Skelligs. This was one of the best parts of our trip to Ireland.
Breakfast was great and there were plenty of nice touches to make the place seem special. Tina recommended a restaurant for us for our evening meals.

Very nice, clean and accommodating B&B with lovely breakfast featuring the owner's homemade bread. Although we had a back view, the front of the B&B faces a lovely and tranquil bay, resplendent with small fishing boats. The owner is very friendly and not overly zealous. Lovely stay.

This is an excellent B&B with very high standards at a great price in a great location. The room was really nicely decorated; everything looked new, and was very clean and comfortable. Towels, (which are kept warm on a heated rail in the bathroom), were replaced every day without us asking as well as biscuits, tea, coffee etc. The owner and her daughter were welcoming and friendly. The breakfast was great. There was a good choice of cooked options as well as cereal, juices, cheese, yogurts, fruit and lovely home-made brown bread. There is plenty of parking for cars round the back. I’d definitely recommend this place and would stay here again.

Well positioned for the Ring of Kerry, Skellig Michael tours, Valentia Isle and area.... a lovely home that satisifies.... Chritine M welcomes you in her downhome, low key approach that does not threaten. She serves a fine breakfast and provides well appointed and spotless rooms that are much appreciated. A lovely stay... thanks.

This was the best bed and breakfast my partner and I stayed in during our trip. Clean, fantastic view, good wifi, nice hostess, peat fire, delicious breakfast. The owner will even help with a trip to Skellig Michael. We highly recommend! Thanks, Tina!

Super clean room, excellent and friendly staff! Food was fantastic and they even asked US when we wanted our breakfast! Beautiful setting right on the water. Close to the "main street" of Portmagee. Spacious bathroom. All in all a super place to stay - I HIGHLY recommend staying here - you won't be disappointed!!

My partner and I stayed here for a night after a long day of driving around the ring of Kerry. The rooms were fantastic, the host was lovely and the breakfast was one of the best we had in Ireland. Would highly recommend this place and we would have stayed another night if we had the time.
