Other Things to Note
New for 2015.....Picnic Hampers!
Since starting Airbnb in the last year we have found that most of our guests prefer to eat out only once a day. Apart from the cost implication, often the food offerings are expensive & cafes/restaurants are extremely busy in the high season. Avoid the garage sandwiches & long queues & let us help! We will provide a packed lunch tailored to your needs. It means you can decide when & where it suits you to enjoy your lunch & believe me there are many beautiful scenic spots to enjoy a picnic in this fabulous county!
For those guests staying more than one night we have beautiful wicker picnic baskets filled with local delights and of course the all important picnic blanket. Wicker Baskets will comprise of the following:
Tayto Crisps (if you haven’t tried these Irish Crisps yet you haven’t lived!)
Irish Spring Water (choice of still or sparkling)
Flask of Tea/Coffee with milk & sugar
For those of you only staying with us the 1 night we can provide all of the above (apart from the flasks-we want those back!!) in disposable picnic boxes. The cost of the above is 10 euro per person for the wicker baskets & 8 euro per person for the disposable picnic option.
Please order before arrival & payment can be made on the day.
If you have any specific requirements or requests please let me know in advance & I
will do my best to facilitate.
Being a family with young children we welcome families with kids. For your convenience we have cots, bottle steriliser, high chair & plenty of toys!
We are a no smoking household & hope guests respect that this is a family home where you will be treated as part of the family.
Ciara and her sweet family were wonderful hosts! We only stayed one night, but wished we'd had more. You do need a car to get to their place, but the view is spectacular, and we needed a car anyway to see the area. Ciara was also really helpful as we talked through what we wanted to do. She has great recommendations!
Toni & Ciara did host us for 1 night, when we visited the ring of Kerry. If you visited Ireland without coming to Kerry, you didn't see the beauty of Ireland.
We kept Toni awake late upon our arrival at midnight despite his early next-morning commute to lead group tours at the scenic cliffs of Moher, he was quite polite and offered us hot drinks on arrival.
We met Ciara arount the breakfast table with a deliciously diverse breakfast she prepared. The kids (Kitty, Jack & Saoirse) were extremely nice & gave us a post card designed by Kitty, then Noha drew a portrait as a gift to Kitty.
The house was extremely clean, luxurious, tidy & so quiet, with a dream location on a hill top overseeing a wide & deep panorama of the beauty-stricken county Kerry. The room was nice & warm. It contained a TV with a set of national channels. The wifi signal was excellent.
The hospitality level we experienced at Toni & Ciara was literally similar to a 5-stars hotel, which I guess stems from their long travel history, and the professional imprint from their involvement in catering for tourists.
Ciara used to be a stewardess, while Toni is an avid tour guide.
The bathroom was next to the room. It was very clean, besides they provided hand soap, shampoo & shower gel.
Thank you indeed guys.
We only stayed for one night with Ciara and her famiy. They were all very welcoming and were helpful in finding our ways around in Ireland. From the living room, when weather allows, one can see the seaside from the lovely house. Thanks for the great breakfast early in the morning.
We had a great stay with Ciara, Tony and the kids in Killarney. It was like being with family and we were immediately welcomed and offered tea and a biccies! It was great to have some time to chat and get to know them better whilst at the same time having plenty of time for ourselves to relax. The room was very comfy and the facilities were very clean. Breakfast was fabulous and the view from their property and overall atmosphere is incredible. Highly recommend staying with this beautiful family! Thanks for a wonderful time :)
Ciara and Tony were wonderful! Very catering! We arrived later into the night than expected and slept longer than expected as well. Tea was ready for us when we arrived and breakfast was waiting for us when we woke up! They were very helpful in mapping out our next day's travel!
A quick overnight stay that suited our itinerary for road trip around Ireland. Ciara and family are a very relaxed family and accommodated us without any hassles. Felt like family.
Car required for access to town.
Lovely room, best shower
We really enjoyed our stay at Ciaras house from beginning to the end. Very welcoming atmosphere, a big room, and clean bathroom and the calm and beauty of the countryside around made the time perfect.

About the Host, Ciara
We are a young family with 3 lively kids! Originally from Dublin we moved to Kerry 7 years ago & haven't looked back! Tony is a part time Tour Guide so has much knowledge on the history & sightseeing highlights of this beautiful county. Before the kids arrived we travelled extensively. All our holiday highlights involved the interesting people we met. This is why we decided to become hosts as we feel that great holiday memories are made by the local people you meet.
