John was a really nice host, very welcoming. He has some great stories which was great to listen to. The place was very neat and clean, everything was perfect. I`d recommend the place for everyone.
John was very welcoming and was able to accommodate us in short notice. He showed us around the quaint little town of Ballyheigue and introduced us to some local folks. John shared many of his life stories with us and made sure that we had an authentic Irish experience with a pint in hand :).
John's house and guest room was very comfortable and clean. The place is accurately described, and we had a beautiful view of the bay from our window.
John was a great host. He made us feel like home :) he helped us out with everything we needed and it was really interesting to hear all the stories of what he's experienced in his life!
John was a very accommodating and friendly host. His house had great views of the surrounding country and was a great place to trek around North Kerry and Bana strand,
