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 smaller of our two rooms (about 9 m²). It has a comfortable bed (4ft wide) and would suit either a single person or a couple. A hairdryer and bathrobes are provided in the room. Please check our other listing for the larger room ('Cute Country Cottage Skellig Ring', https://www.airbnb.ie/rooms/1930122).

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!

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.

This cottage is a dream! Ina and Marcus really went above and beyond to make us feel at home. Ina greeted us with tea and baked goods and made up a cozy fire in the evening. The room is incredibly comfortable, and the breakfast was absolutely delicious. My only regret is that we could not stay longer - we felt so welcomed and shared many lovely conversations. Stay here if you can - it was the best accommodation of our trip to Ireland! Thank you!!

What a fantastic stay! For those new to AirBnb or those who are very experienced in home stays, Ina & Marcus far exceed expectations. I could not have asked for one more thing as they were both warm, welcoming and accommodating in every possible way. Fantastic breakfasts, wonderful recommendations for the area, and an extraordinarily comfortable room. I was very sad to leave their cozy cottage and dearly hope to return someday!!

Ina and Marcus were lovely with us and helped to enjoy in the best way our jouney to Ring of Kerry giving us perfect advices about places to eat and listen to music, and also to book the Skellig Michael tour. The breakfast was tasty and delicious with attention to all details. We felt completely at home. Hope to see them soon and to keep in touch.

I couldn't have asked for a better first time air bnb experience or night in Ireland. The amount of detail from the slippers provided in the room to the beautiful breakfast, there is no doubt that Ina and Marcus truly care about their guest's experience. Ina and Marcus went out of their way to give us advice on what to see in the area and options for dinner/drinks. When we came home we got to sit by the fire and have a nice conversation before a great nights rest. I wish everyone has the opportunity to stay here! Couldn't say enough! Thank you thank you!

Ina and Markus are wonderful people. They run a true bed and breakfast. My daughter had a marvelous time with Ina. She spent time teaching my daughter to dance traditional Irish steps and they gave wonderful recommendations for the area! If you are in the area, you must stay with Ina and Markus! Ou will not be disappointed.

Ina and Marcus were wonderful hosts! Their home was cozy and comfortable and had a beautiful view. Everything you could need was provided. The breakfast spread was fantastic, including the freshly ground oats cooked into a creamy porridge by Marcus, and fresh strawberries from their garden. We would love to visit again in the future!

Ina And Marcus User Profile

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. She likes to meet people and to stay connected and that's one of the reasons we are getting into this airbnb thing.

Marcus is an IT specialist and works mainly in Cork but also part-time from home. As if he doesn't get enough of computers during work hours, he also designs and maintains a couple of websites. In his spare time he is into Geocaching, photography and gardening (plenty scope for that around our house!)

We like to travel independently, make our own plans and find our own way. Usually we find it is the people we meet, along with the beauty of our destination, that make any holiday really special.

We discovered airbnb during our holidays in Sardinia in 2013. In fact, Italy is our favourite travel destination with France and Germany following not far behind. We like to bring our own car so that we can visit different wine regions and take some bottles home with us.

We have stayed with and want to especially recommend these airbnb hosts:
