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 also on the wild Atlantic way route. 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 dating back to 1844 some great stories to share.
