Double Room in Family Run Sheep Farm in West Kerry.
We are situated on the Dingle Peninsula 2 miles from the sea, on the Wild Atlantic Way, between the Sliabh Mish and Strabally Mountain ranges. The locality is ideal for walking, cycling enthusiasts and those interested in Archaeology. It is also suitable for those who would like a more authentic experience of life in the area being comfortably removed from the more commercial tourism centres whilst still providing good access to the unquestionable attractions that the Dingle peninsula offers. You can relax in the peace and quiet of the valley surrounded by nature and away from the hustle and bustle! If that's what you would like on your holiday! And you could make us your base and tour around the Dingle Peninsula and see the sights!!
We are located near Camp Village with a choice of 4 pubs, 2 restaurants, a Supermarket and 2 churches. There are Traditional Music sessions in the pubs, spontaneous during the week and organised at weekends and if you are a musician yourself and you want a corner to start up a session with your friends, you are welcome! Music sessions are not as regular during the winter and are confined to weekends. Meet the locals too in a friendly environment and have a pint of whatever you fancy in a real nice country setting, with spectacular views of mountain and sea. Water Sports and activities available too in nearby Maharees and take a trip on a fishing boat! It can be organised too!
Our Family have run the farm here since the middle of the 19th Century. And you can wander around the farm and up the hillside and enjoy a leisurely walk or a mountain hike! We can go along with you and show you the way or you can enjoy a quiet stroll, you won't get lost! Only the sheep for company!!
We can offer advice and provide maps of some good walking/hiking routes in the area as well as general advice on the region.
The bedroom is a double room with a view of the Hills behind the house. The Bathroom is located next to a toilet/ bathroom/shower.
We are approximately 10 minutes from the village of Camp. Travelling from Tralee, Take the N86 National Secondary road to Dingle through the village of Camp. You will drive past lower Camp, The Junction Bar and Railway Tavern and at the fork of the road take the road signposted Camp and Annascaul (not the Castlegregory, Connor Pass road) drive up to Camp village past Ashes and Dalys Pubs and travel on for about 10 minutes, then take the road on the right, L8015 and signposted Foilatrisnigh and Seaside Caravan Park into the valley, then continue past the yellow L roadsign past a very sharp turn and then on the left there is a boreen where Gleann na nGealt Sheepfarm is signposted. Drive in that boreen and the first house on the right is our house with signpost Brigids Sheepfarm at the entrance.
We provide free car parking for your car. If you are travelling by bus, we are located off the Tralee-Dingle N86 National Secondary Road, bus route Number 275 and can pick you up from the bus should you travel to Camp.
The Bus routes timetable can be viewed on the Bus Eireann Website. However a car is the best option as you will have more freedom to travel and see more of the sights and go off the beaten track.
Just a little more information about Archaeological Sites in the area.
The Dingle peninsula is rich in Archaeological site locations.
There are 35 known sites registered with the Archaeological Survey of Ireland in the valley of Gleann Na nGealt alone.
Historic Tobar na nGealt is located here in the valley.
We have a number of Archaeological sites on the Farm these include 2 Ringforts, a Souterrain and a Gallaun or standing stone.
These sites were protected by the respect and esteem our ancestors held for the past and superstitious belief associated with bad luck resulting from interference with the properties of the Fairies or Little people as they were sometimes called.

Brigid and Liam were lovely hosts, kind funny and lovely to talk to. It was great hearing about Irish life and hearing their stories and (website hidden)! The location is beautiful with nice pubs handily placed nearby :) their home is warm and comfortable, a home away from home...we had a great sleep! Lots of lovely food and they even helped us plan our trip and gave us tips on routes and places to stay! I thoroughly recommend them as hosts! I hope the lambs continue to thrive! X
What to say ? IT was exactly what we were looking for: an authentic experience. You wake up with the sheeps next to the house, in a wonderful landscape. Brigid is so nice and interesting, and in her home we had the BEST Irish breakfast (I tried a lot of it during the trip, but it was far the best one !). ANd she knows and can advise you were to have a really good diner around as well !
I really recommend her !!!
We had a wonderful stay with Brigid! I recommend giving yourself plenty of time to find her place while there is daylight, as I missed her turn into the valley because it wasn't easy to spot in the dark! Well worth the extra detour though! Brigid welcomed us with tea and apple crumble (amazing!) and for a very reasonable price she made us an enormous breakfast with homemade banana bread on top of everything else. I loved the bread so much that she was sweet enough to pack some up for me to take on the road, which was above and beyond! It was so nice hearing about her lifestyle on the sheep farm and how her family has been there for 8 generations. I even got to go visit her flock and feed her new lamb- the highlight of my morning (besides that banana bread of course!). Brigid was great company, very accommodating, and made us feel right at home in such a beautiful setting.
Brigid welcomed us very kindly with an excellent Appfelstrudel ! Brigid well advised us to see traditional music in a great pub. Her sheeps are lovely and the place is pretty nice. Thank you for your welcoming !
My experience at Brigids was exactly what I hoped for! History, culture, serene and beautiful landscapes at your doorstep, and the adorable shops, delicious cafes, and seaside activities of Dingle are just a short bus ride away.
This is a very special place...explore a fairy ring and taste water from the Well of the Mad if you wish :) Not only does Brigid know interesting historical facts, but she is a part of the place, brought up to respect and value it like the previous generations of her family. This doesn't just make for charming stories, but presents you with a genuine learning experience, if you are interested.
On the other hand, I'd recommend Brigid's for travellers craving an active holiday also. I would love to return with more time over the summer and hike, and I'm sure cycling here would be a dream for those with better knees...
Oh, and do try the breakfast...really if Brigid offers you anything to eat, accept it! She is a wonderful cook, and her banana bread lives up to its airbnb reputation. :)
Five stars, highly recommended, especially for anyone who hopes to describe their vacation with words like 'quiet' and 'tranquil'. :) I really do love this place. Thank you, Brigid!
Amazing hostess who did everything in her power to make sure we felt right at home! She greeting us our first evening with homemade cobbler and tea. When that Irish weather creeped up into our holiday, she lent us rainproof jumpers and boots so we could still go visit the sheep one morning (and made sure we could use a dryer for our clothes once we returned as well). Her breakfast was delicious, and worth the addition to your booking. Always willing to answer your questions with a smile, and so sweet to chat with. The room was basic, but clean and very comfortable. A true testament to Irish Hospitality!
The reservation was canceled 38 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
We had a wonderful time at Brigid's place!! She is a lovely host. She lives in a beautiful area and it was fun to meet her sheeps.
The breakfast was very good especially the home made banana bread ;)
Thanks Brigid!! Take care,
Stephanie and nicolas
I had the most wonderful two day experience with (email hidden) nGealt Sheep Farm.
I believe that Ireland is found with the village of Camp Ireland. Not only were the views brilliant, but the village was as quaint as you would want to see while on a vacation in Europe.
Brigid went above and beyond what would be expected in a B&B visit, to a point that I, a writer, am at a loss for words to describe Brigid and her B&B.
I will say, if you are going to Ireland, you should go to Camp, and you should definitely experience the Gleann na nGealt Sheep Farm. I have a friend forever in Brigid!!!!
OH and.....you haven't had breakfast until Brigid serves you one!!!!
Our favorite place and person in Ireland. If you are looking for an authentic Irish stay with the sweetest and kindest host look no further. Brigid welcomes you with homemade deserts and Irish hospitality. Her house may not be the Ritz Carlton but your stay will be so much more rewarding then any chain hotel. Brigid had great views on life and we shared many great conversations over tea in her living room. I highly suggest paying the 5 euros for breakfast better than any other we had during our stay in Ireland. The bed is very comfy! Our favorite part was after breakfast Brigid took us to meet her sheep. She is such a kind spirit and her animals adore her. Dingle is gorgeous and we only wish we stayed longer. Look no further stay here for the experience of a life time! Brigid thank you again for the custard and apple crumble recipe I made it and turned out delicious!
