Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We had a lovely stay with Patricia. Her house was a little hard to find, but with a GPS and her written directions we didn't get lost! Patricia was a warm and lovely host who gives wonderful recommendations (listen to her recommendations!) for places to eat and things to see in the area. Once we followed someone else's suggestion and were very disappointed, and the second time we listened to Patricia and ate at one of the best restaurants during our entire trip. The room is clean, cozy and has a lovely view. Shower and bath were wonderful and breakfast was plentiful. Patricia goes out of her way to make you comfortable and I can tell she really cares about her guests.

  • Patricia was a really great host. We spent a really amazing evening with her (and her cats) despite the storm. A really warm welcoming and rewarding discussed. For sure when we come back in Kerry we'll see you with great pleasure. And if we win the lottery we'll think of your home :) Thanks for all Patricia !!! See you !

  • Patricia is THE most gracious and wonderful host! We were running very late and didn't reach her place until after midnight. She was so understanding and warmly welcomed us into her home. My husband got a bad cold during our stay and she made him a lemon/honey tea. So very kind of her! We enjoyed our evening/morning chats with Patricia about Ireland, the world, our plans for the day...

    Patricia went above and beyond during our stay with her. Her home is beautiful and the room spacious and clean. If you are wanting to explore the Ring of Kerry, her home is perfect!

  • We were welcomed very warmly by Patricia and cats. She gave us an excellent tip for where to go for vegetarian food, which can be challenging in rural Ireland. The house is amazing and the bed was even better. We didn’t sleep this good in months, so this made us wake up very late.. No problem for Patricia, a great breakfast was still waiting for us. She has a perfect feeling for hospitality which made us feel at home immediately. Thanks a lot for welcoming us!

  • We have just spent an amazing four days in Patricia's stunning home in the beautifully scenic ring of Kerry. Patricia was the perfect host, extremely warm and welcoming, charming us with local history and (website hidden) and always happy to give great advice on 'off the tourist route' sites and walking destinations. This is the ideal location for exploring western Cork and Kerry. The accommodation was incredibly spacious, comfy and immaculate with a cheery fire each evening to welcome us from the elements. Loved our healthy breakfasts! Thank you Patricia for our unforgettable Kerry experience!
    Highly recommended!

  • Patricia has a beautiful and really clean house, with a lovely mature garden and fantastic rural views. Patricia was a lovely host - easy-going, relaxed and helpful.

    We would have loved to stay longer with Patricia and explore more of the area if we had time. Sneem is a lovely little village. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend Patricia and her hosue to anyone. It is a great place to stay !

  • We stayed with Patricia for two nights ; she greeted us heartily.
    She is very generous with her time in the evenings, and great company. We enjoyed chatting away with her in her comfortable living room beside the stove, while drinking a glass of wine or whiskey.
    She has a beautiful, spacious and secluded home, and an excellent taste for decoration!
    She was an amazing host, we loved our stay and would highly recommend her to whoever fancies a good laugh, in a magnificent environment!

  • We arrived by the time it was dark and it was the most amazing surprise to wake up in such a stunning part of the world. Not only was it a great stay, it was nice to talk to such an interesting and friendly person such as Patricia.
    There is a great little walk around the back of the house that gives you a wonderful view over the mountains. And if you're lucky one of her cats will take you for the walk.
    Great value, comfy bed, nice breakfast and would definitely stay again.

  • Patricia is a wonderful hostess and made our stay feel very comfortable. We arrived in the dark, missed her house and she came down to the road to meet us in the dark. Her house is decorated beautifully and the views that you wake up to in the morning are stunning. Both Patricia and her house are unique in themselves, I'd thoroughly recommend it,
