Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Patricia (email hidden) who is friendly, easy going, and very generous with her hospitality. We stayed one night, were welcomed with a "cuppa" and chat, and as the conversation flowed it felt as though we had known Patricia for years.
    The house is in a rural setting near the village of Sneem and our room was large and bright with a seperate bathroom, both were beautifully presented.
    Breakfast next morning was excellent, being both varied and plentiful.
    We had a most enjoyable stay with Patricia and highly recommend her as a host if you're visiting the area.

  • We had a wonderful stay at Patricias! Her house is beautiful and immaculately clean. The bed was really comfortable and the view from the window overlooking the mountains is incredible. Her gardens are so impressive and she spent time giving us the grand tour. The best thing about staying with Patricia - is getting to meet Patricia! Walking in the door we felt like we'd come to stay at an old friends house, she greeted us warmly and looked after us so well. I highly recommend staying at Patricia's magical place and can't wait to get back there.

  • Patricia is a wonderful Hostess. Patricia took me a very warm welcome with a cup of coffee. I felt very comfortable with her and her home. She gave me many suggestions what is nice to visit around her place.
    I enjoyed my stay very much and would like to come back anytime.
    I miss her already.

  • I had such a lovely stay at Patricia's house. Everything was perfect. Patricia was very patient even though we arrived much later than we thought we would. We had such a fun evening chatting with her (she's really funny) and I was happy to gain some of her knowledge about Ireland and the wonderful region she lives in. Breakfast was great, and the room and bed couldn't have been more comfortable. I hope to return someday soon.

  • Our stay at Patricia's comfortable house was great! First, Patricia is a great hostess, very careful, nice, and helpful for advices to visit her region (don't miss the peninsula of Beara, our best memory!). She welcomed us as family, and we felt so well in her big, lovely house, especially after a day struggling with the weather outside! Besides, the house is perfectly located, in the ring of Kerry, just 6 km from Sneem, a typical village that offers great pubs.

  • I had a very warm and friendly welcome. Patricia is a very nice person and open-minded.

    I enjoyed my stay and I recommend this B&B !

  • Nous avons tellement aimé notre séjour chez Patricia qui est une personne adorable, accueillante et sympatique. Et sa maison est superbe ! Bref, un excellent souvenir et si nous retournons en Irlande nous ne manquerons pas de lui rendre visite. Nous serons heureux de la recevoir si elle traverse notre pays.

  • Staying with Patricia was absolutely fabulous!!! The house is so nice and clean and the bed was sooo comfortable :) Patricia was really welcoming and sweet, we had a great time with her and breakfast was the cherry on top of the ice-cream!!! We're definitely coming back and can highly recommemd it to everyone. This place is perfect for everyone who's doing the Ring of Kerry. Sneem is a sweet little village and Patricia knows just where to find the best sausage in town, that's for sure!

  • Patricia (email hidden)e directed us perfectly to her house and warmed us up with cups of tea when we arrived. She gave us a great recommendation for where to get dinner in Sneem. The bed is a dream, you will sleep in, its a fact. Breakfast was a huge selection of pastries and meusli, coffee and tea. Even as we were in a huge storm, Patricia's place is an amazing little getaway :) Oh and the cats are so much fun to watch.

i have lived in kerry for 12years having lived in germany for several years i spend most of my time in the garden and work as a counsellor in private practice. I am fairly relaxed and love music and most expressions of creativity also have an interest in politics. I look forward to meeting my guests as i enjoy talking and interacting and learning from a variety of different people
