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! Light breakfast is provided i.e. cereals, toast, fruit & tea/coffee
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 Tony gave us a very warm welcome. It was a joy to meet the two and their lovely kids, which were very well behaving. We arrived with a big gray german sheperd and it was just no problem at all; very cool! After a short small talk we received some valuable information about local eating and for going out in the evening. And the room itself and all around it was just clean and very well sorted. We really enjoyed the stay and it was just all perfect. Thank you very much!
Haven't had the chance to meet Ciara as she was away, but she left directions to her place and was available for help when needed. We met Tony and the kids as well as the grandparents. They were all so friendly and nice. The place was abit out of town but it was quiet and perfect for a good night's sleep.
We were for 2 nights at Ciara's nice home (10 mn by car from Tralee city center), and the welcome was very great. Very nice room and Ciara and Tony make the best in order to give us all the necessaries information to spend good times in Kerry areas (pub, restaurant, way to go, ...), exactly in that we want to find. The bedroom was very nice, comfortable, quiet and the breakfast very complete. The family (with the 3 childrens) make warms our hearts as well. They are lovely persons who are great representative from Irish people, who know what welcome mean. When you are in Kerry, don't hesitate to book your room at Ciara's home!
We had a GREAT stay at Ciara and her family!
a very warm welcome, all the good advices we needed for our journey and a lovely family.
The description and communication was quite perfect, the room is very large and the view is amazing :)
thank you very much for everything!
Cannot say enough about this wonderful family! So welcoming and went above and beyond to make sure we got the most out of our time while exploring the area. Everything we could need/want was made available to us for breakfast in the mornings- including directions and recommendations for the day ahead! Clean and comfortable room for guests. Thank you for having us and making us feel like part of your family for a few days!
We really enjoyed our stay with Ciara's family. Our two year old son enjoyed to play with Saoirse, Kathy and Jack. The room is very clean with fantastic bed and nice view on the Kerry. Ciara and Tony are always ready to explain us how to find great places to visit. We were here like a part of the family and that's why we won't hesitate to come back there.
Absolutely loved Ciara and Tony, They were very welcoming and very friendly. The place was even better than listed on Airbnb. This was our first experience and I must say that I will surely stay with Ciara and Tony whenever I visit this part of the country.

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.
