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!
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).
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.
- We ask that you don't smoke inside.
- Please take off your outdoor shoes when going upstairs. Slippers are provided.
- You need to have your own car or bicycle as we are not accessible via public transport.
- Please respect latest check-out time of 11:00 am.
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:
Ireland, North Tipperary:
France, Clisson (near Nantes):
Italy, Sardinia, Santa Maria Navarrese:
Greece, Crete, Monopari:
