The Space

The Old School House B&B welcomes you to beautiful unspoiled Ballinskelligs recently awarded the gold star for dark skies and a popular with star gazers . It nestles between two sandy blue flag beaches and stunning mountains. It is home to Ballinskelligs abbey where the monks founded their Monastery when they came off Skellig Michael in the 9-century. There are many activities locally for you to enjoy, be it cliff walks along the Atlantic waves, kayaking, canoeing, or rock climbing, abseiling a round of golf, horse riding, bird watching or simply taking in the view over a cup of coffee in our local beach cafe you can have it all. Start your day with our home cooked and totally fresh breakfast, made with our own free-range eggs and local Valencia milk you can choose from scrambled eggs with Irish smoked salmon or fluffy pancakes with berries and cream,not forgetting the traditional Irish fried breakfast and our homemade brown bread and scones. We can arrange your boat trip to Skellig Michael (Weather Permitting) or help you plan your day with maps and directions there are many historic sites on the Skellig ring and the nearby world famous Ring of Kerry is pure eye candy.You will love our house if you are a teacher or have an interest in history as we have old school records some great stories to share.

  • That was a perfect stay. Cosy rooms, nice location outside all busy touristic roads but close to valentia island and skellig michael boats. Very friendly hosts and perfect breakfast. That's all you need in Ireland after a long drive. Just perfect!

  • The Old School House B&B is the perfect location to see the Ring of Kerry as well as cliffs, beaches, and the absolutely stunning landscape of Ireland's west coast. We couldn't be happier with our experience--Lillian and her husband are so welcoming! Each morning they provided us with a lovely breakfast and more importantly great company! They enlightened us with some Irish history, a bit of music, even magic tricks---they certainly will make you feel right at home and you won't want to leave! Thank you so much Lillian--we had an absolute fantastic time! I want to come back already!

  • It was great to stay at the Old School House with the very nice hosts, Dominick and Lilian.
    Thank you for the music and the nice moment together in front of the fireplace. It is a good memory of our travel in Ireland.

  • Talk about a fantastic find! My mother and I drove along the western coast of Ireland, and nothing beat the location and hospitality of this listing! The Ballinskellig area is stunning, and the bnb is a great shoot off point to see it all. Dominic and Lillian are very warm and fun people, quick to make you feel at home. The breakfast spread was delicious and varied, allowing you to pick and choose. I highly suggest this listing!

  • If you are looking for an affectionate and kind-hearted accomondation, the Old Schoolhouse will be the perfect place for this. Dominick and Lillian are wonderful persons and they create a fantastic place for holidays.
    It doesn`t matter if you will stay for just a few days or for a longer time, you will enjoy it!
    I had the best time in my life, when I stayed for a month with Lillian and Dominick. Thanks for everything!
