I have one en-suite double bedroom available on a nightly, weekly or monthly basis in my family home. It is a modern, comfortable and warm 4 bedroom house and there are wooden floors throughout. I am located on the ring of Kerry, a popular tourist area.
The bedroom has a double bed, bed side lamps, bedside lockers, drawers and an ensuite shower room. It is suitable for a couple or single person. Bed linen, towels and hairdryer provided. The room overlooks the garden and a wooded area.
Breakfast is included and served in the kitchen. I can make you whatever you like - Full English or a Continental (fresh farm eggs from the hens). An evening meal is available on request for an additional cost. You will be welcomed with tea/coffee and a snack on arrival.
Guests are welcome to use the garden and sitting room which is shared with family. There is a TV and DVD player. Guests must not mind children or pets. There is access to the internet, on a laptop for which I have a wireless modem.
There is parking available.
(Discounted rates for longer stays).
The town is off the beaten track, so guests will need a car. There is limited public transport - bus 1 a day to Killarney. There are local taxis too. The town is a Gourmet Capital of Ireland! The town has pubs and great restaurants within walking distance. There are fabulous hotels with great spas and bars. We are on the sea and there are loads of great outdoor activities. These include golf, hillwalking, fishing, kayaking, horse riding and water sports nearby.
Faye was an excellent hostess. She was very attentive, and the accommodations were fantastic. It's a large room that she kept quite tidy, including fresh towels daily. She cooked us breakfast every morning at our convenience and what a breakfast: home baked breads, butchers sausage, eggs cooked to perfection, and much else. Really didn't need lunch after such a sumptuous breakfast. And the bonus was Lucca and Daisy, her delightful children. The only drawback was we had to go next door to her mother's award winning B&B for internet access. All in all an excellent choice located where the ring of Berra kisses the ring of Kerry. Music and food in Kenmare are also great.
Faye was an excellent host, cooking a fabulous breakfast and even doing a sneaky load of laundry for us! The bed was incredibly comfortable and the room we had huge, with a very clean bathroom. Faye's children are charming. We felt bad for staying only one night!
In the Middle Ages women were valued for their hospitality and it's likely the travelling bards wrote songs and ballads about their experiences. This was how they did airbnb. Faye is the modern equivalent of that. Her home is lovely and warm, she's an intelligent and delightful lady and her children are adorable. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious. This is what a BnB should be.
