Island View Listowel Bed and Breakfast
Overlooking the Listowel Horse-Racing Course (locally known as "The Island") and the trout-fishing River Feale, the aptly-named Island View has the added bonus of splendid views of three of Kerry's mountains (The Stack Mountains, The Slieve Mish and Mount Brandon).
It is situated in the centre of Listowel town with all its conveniences within a two-minute walk, but with its private riverside back garden and off-street secure parking, Island View has all the charm of the countryside in the middle of a lively and friendly Market town.
The stay was absolutely fantastic. The full window view of the famous Listowel racetrack was amazing. The accommodations were modern with less than a minute walk right to the heart of town. The host, John, was not only a terrific host but was one of the highlights of my trip. Would absolutely recommend to anyone visiting Listowel, Kerry, or Ireland.
Johnny's amazing! We loved staying with him! He's been the best part of our whole trip; friendly, hospitable, smart, and a great cook as well. We had a fantastic time hanging out with him and his place is absolutely lovely. We're bummed we didn't plan on spending more time there! We'd book again with Johnny in a heart beat. Five stars!
Great 2 day stay in a beautiful home. Johnny's a very kind host and a good cook. Enjoyed Listowel and surrounds. Wish I'd had more time to see more of it.
Johnny had us feeling at home from the start. great reception, felt like a long lost relative. the pub we were visiting that night was a block away and johnny was able to school us as to owner and bartender before we went. description was spot on and the in town location is exactly what we like and live with, both in newport and key west. home has some great contemporary ideas that are copy worthy. everything was the best to date after two weeks of travel. especially the 220 view of the river, race course, mountains and valley. BRAVO!!
Absolutely brilliant! I can not explain enough how friendly and welcoming Johnny is. Such a nice bloke! We were quite hungover and he offered to make us packed lunch breakfasts and give us drinks to take with us. A stunning place with a lovely lovely view if the river and racecourse! Value for money! Thank you Johnny!
Johnny est un hôte agréable. Il parle très bien français ce qui facilite la communication! :-)
Il nous a vite mis à l'aise et nous a laissé accès à sa cuisine pour notre dîner, ce qui nous a permis de nous poser un peu.
La maison est charmante et offre une très belle vue.
C'était un agréable séjour.
Johonny è un ospite molto generoso e cordiale, sempre disponibile a conversare e a suggerire.
La casa è veramente bella, con una magnifica vista sul fiume e sulle campagna circostanti, pur trovandosi vicinissima al centro di Listowel.
Siamo stati molto bene a casa di Johnny, in caso ripassassimo da quelle parti ritorneremmo volentieri a dormire presso di lui.
