Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • 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!

  • Lillian and Dominick were fantastic. We had such a great time with them and the area is absolutely breathtaking. We would go back in a heartbeat (and probably will!)

    July 2013
  • Lillian and Dominick were fantastic hosts! Wonderful people, a charming home, and fun to chat with. Our stay here was certainly one of the memorable highlights of our trip!

    June 2013
  • We had a great stay with Lillian and Dominic. Our only regret is that we were in such a hurry that we couldn't see more and visit more. Isabelle loved Dominic's stories and magic tricks. The Old Schoolhouse is in a great and easily accessible location. Thanks for help in booking our ferry to Skellig Michael and for all of the breakfast food!

  • Coup de coeur pour ce couple charmant et très accueillant !
    Une bonne odeur de feu de bois parcourt la maison et on prend plaisir à discuter sur le canapé dans le salon.
    Au petit déjeuner, très bon, super réveil au son de la guitare par le mari de Lillian avec qui nous avons beaucoup discuté de tout et de rien. Il nous a donc donné de très bons conseils sur les visites à faire dans les environs.
    Un très bon souvenir de l'hospitalité irlandaise !!!
    Chambre confortable et chaleureuse. La campagne autour est très calme.

  • We ahd a great time, although short, with Dominic and Lillian, great hosts, and fun people. We will always remember where we were when we got our new Pope! Fantastic atmosphere, food, and room, my son Logan (10), said it was his "favorite shower" ever, high praise for any Irish bathroom! You are in the best spot in Ireland here, away from the crowds but easy access to anything, beauty around every corner. Don't miss the Old School House,thanks very much guys, hopefully see you again.....

  • Lillian and Dominick are as welcoming as they come for hosts. Met with a smile, left with a hug. We had a great time just lounging around the property and exchanging stories from the road. Awesome history behind the property itself too.

    Location is unmatched for exploring the Ring of Kerry and Skelligs Ring. Room was comfortable and spacious. The breakfast was one of the best of our trip!

    Hope to make it back to this wonderful spot soon!

  • Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Dominick and Lillian. From eating a wonderful breakfast, to feeding the ducks, to chatting, or getting tips on where to go we could not have asked for a better experience!

    October 2012
  • Our hosts were wonderful and hospitable. The location was great for going to Skellig Michael and golfing. Great breakfast, tea, and atmosphere.
