  • Patricia was a super host. We arrived later than expected and was extremely welcoming. Communication was fantastic, response time was super quick and directions to her place were excellent. Very happy with our stay, hope to be back again.

  • We had an excellent stay at Patricia's home. The house and grounds are lovely and relaxing and Patricia is an excellent host. The room is very comfortable and the breakfast was (email hidden)tricia even accommodated our vegan diet! I would recommend this airbnb home.

  • 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 !

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
