Come to visit us in beautiful Kerry and explore the Skellig Ring, one of Lonely Planet's Top 10 Regions to visit in 2017! We are only 5 minutes from Cahersiveen, ideally located on the Ring of Kerry, the Skellig Ring and the Wild Atlantic Way long-distance driving route. Portmagee, the departure point for Skellig trips is only 10 minutes away.

Welcome to our little piece of heaven!

The space

Deceptively small and cute from the outside, our house is roomy and airy inside with an open plan layout. Many say it has a Spanish feel to it. It is tastefully decorated with a mix of Irish, German, French and Italian bits and pieces. They say a picture paints a thousand words, so please browse through the photos to get a feel for our place:)

This is the larger of our two rooms (about 18 m²). It has a comfortable double bed and is ideal for a couple. The sofa bed can accommodate a third person. A hairdryer and bathrobes are provided in the room. Please check our other listing for the second room ('Cute Country Cottage Cosy Room',

Guest access

Our guests have access to:
- a guest bathroom on the same level (please note that this bathroom may be shared with other guests in our second room)
- shared spaces: living room and conservatory
- garden and outdoor furniture

Ina serves her fabulous breakfast in the conservatory. It consists of tea and coffee, cereals, toast and bread, a selection of cheeses, cold meats, jam, marmalade, yoghurt, fruits and other goodies - more than enough to get you going for the day ahead! She will also cook eggs for you if you like.

Interaction with guests

At least one of us will be here during your stay, and depending on work schedules, we are both present most of the time.

Ina is an Irish Dancing teacher and would be happy to give you an introduction to Irish Dancing in her studio, the "Rince Room". This is great fun - check the picture in the gallery!
We also have a piano and a guitar and we would love to hear you play and sing.

Marcus will be delighted to show you around the grounds, our little woodland and his garden. He can also advise you on hiking in the McGillicuddy reeks, trips to the Skelligs and other highlights in the area. And if you are a Geocacher, Marcus is the man to talk to as he has hidden a good number in Southwest Kerry.

Other things to note

Please note that children come here for dancing lessons from September to April, Monday to Thursday in the afternoon and early evening. During these times it can get quite noisy.

By far the best bnb we've ever stayed at: friendliness, cleanliness, the setting, the house, and a breakfast you would only see in movies. Highly recommended.

Ina and Marcus are truly "super hosts". The home was exactly as described. They are wonderful company. The breakfast was incredible! The beds were very comfortable and the space is gorgeous. Fresh seafood and Fairies abound!

This B&B is pure perfection. Ina immediately made us feel right at home and later served us some tea and biscuits, which was much appreciated after a long day of travel. Our room was very spacious and the fancy chocolates and fresh flowers from the garden were a nice touch. The garden is very large and has many paths wandering through fields and trees and bushes which was a favorite activity of our 7 year old daughter. Breakfast was beautiful from the table setting to the presentation of the food and the food was fabulous! We especially enjoyed the local smoked salmon. This was also our daughter's favorite place to stay as Ina is wonderful with children and took our daughter through the garden where they found evidence of some fairies. I highly recommend this B&B to everyone!

Where to begin? We felt like we had been adopted by this family. Ina and Marcus were by far our favorite family to meet in Ireland. They welcomed our little family as if we were a part of theirs. Ina played with my 19 month old and made sure he was well equipped with toys! She even offered to babysit (and if you're a parent you know that is worth your weight in gold!). They gave us tips on sights, restaurants and visits nearby. And last but most epic was Ina's breakfast. Have you ever wanted to dine like royalty? Each morning Ina and Marcus make you a breakfast to die for (fresh bread, meats, jams, fruits, cheeses, orange juice, milk, coffee, pie, spreads, oh my!) I'm sure I left half of it out. If only AirBnB would let us upload pictures. This is a place not to miss! Five stars! Amazing!

Ina and Marcus are the most amazing hosts! Their home is pure comfort and relaxation -- beautiful touches inside from Ina and great landscaping outside from Marcus. More than that, they have been incredibly warm and friendly and helpful -- I would say they have become not only hosts but genuine friends to me. You cannot find a better b&b experience -- this family is beyond gracious, simply wonderful

Ina and Marcus were so kind and welcoming! Their home is exactly as described and using their directions made them easy to find. Upon arrival we had a lovely late night chat to get to know each other, which was really nice. They also were able to give us helpful advice and places to go/see. The bedroom and bath were very nice as well. The breakfast Ina provided in the morning was FANTASTIC as well as the beautiful view while eating. I would highly recommend staying with them to any of my family and friends. Thank you Ina and Marcus!

We are so grateful that we had the pleasure of staying with Ina and Marcus on our honeymoon trip around Ireland. We stayed in 14 different places, castles included, and quite honestly, their home was one of our absolute favorites. Everything was spotlessly clean, spacious, and so inviting. You truly feel at home, and the company could not be better, including Miss Alice! Not to mention the breakfast... The display Ina puts together is just wonderful, and the food itself is delicious (kudos to Marcus for the hand-made fresh coffee)! We hope to be back and spend more time, hopefully with Ina and Marcus at their beautiful home!

We are an Irish/German couple living in Kerry, Ireland. We think this is a very good combination:) Ina was born and grew up here while Marcus is originally from East Germany and has been living in Ireland since 1993. Ina is an Irish Dancing teacher and also loves painting…
