About this listing
Set in the most spectacular scenery in the world, this room is a perfect place from which to explore the ring of Kerry and the beautiful countryside.
The house is 10 KM from Kenmare town in a quiet rural area close to woods & beach.
Helen was the perfect host. Warmly, funny, generous. We loved staying in their house or better say home because from the first second on we felt welcomed. The view is fabulouse and the living room really cosy and open to everyone. We had great chats and laughs with Helen and definately cone back if we are back in kenmare.
What a wonderful, lively and engaging family. We had spectacular time with the Galloglys, Helen, Kevin, Aoife, and Mary (Granny.) They were warm, accommodating and helpful during our stay. From the welcoming cup of tea and cake to the helpful local suggestions to the fascinating conversations with them and another guest, it was a thoroughly enjoyable stay. We learned more about Ireland than we could have imagined. We were truly kindred souls with them and hope e can stay in touch.
Helen and Kevin were extremely friendly and helpful. Their knowledge of the local area shaped our holiday in this area. Their home is in a quieter part on the ring of Kerry and was a real Irish family experience for us.nthe room was spacious and comfortable and their family was warm and welcoming. Their advice on where to eat,Myra el and sight see made this a unique holiday. The whole family including grandma and daughter could not have been more engaging.
Our stay at Helen's was very pleasant. The room and bathroom were clean and comfortable and Mary, Helen's mother, was very friendly. We didn't spend much time in the house but it was perfect for our purposes.
What a wonderful place to stay. Everyone made us feel so welcome. We felt so much at home. We so much appreciated being able to wash our clothes! The advice on where to go and what roads to use was just wonderful.
It is a big house and we felt very welcome by all the family. The view was great as expected. We enjoyed the living-room with the fire-place and the kitchen with all what you need. The bed is comfortable.
We thanks a lot Helen's mother for having dried and folded our cloths.
Helen gave us a good address of a restaurant and a very nice way to go to Kinvarra by ferry (the next step of our trip). Despite of our low level english, we could chat and laugh too.
The others guests we met were friendly too.
The house and there surroundings are very quiet.
The location is perfect to visit the Kerry.
Very nice welcoming and high attention from Helen. She gave us good tips. Nice and clean bedroom in a spacious house.
We highly recommand !

About the Host, Kevin & Helen
We are delighted to offer you a home from home on your travels here on The Ring of Kerry. Our home offers spectacular views of Kenmare bay all the way out to the Atlantic Sea. We are a family that enjoys hosting guests. We both enjoy travelling, reading, the area around us and making life fun. We live in the house with our daughter Aoife (who is passionate about writing) who is 15 and our small dog Storm. Helen's mum lives separately in a Granny house at the back, so there are always people around to interact with and offer advice for both travel and the local area.
We love to travel and we use Airbnb both as hosts and guests. We love the experience of travelling through Airbnb as it offers what we value most a home based, local experience while travelling. Helen is a Social care professional and Kevin is a business and marketing graduate. We now work in furniture creation and retail and our home is furnished with some of our own unique furniture.
Our home provides a base from where you can explore the ring of Kerry or the Kerry area. It is situated on Ireland's world famous Wild Atlantic way coastal route, that spans 7 of Ireland's counties along the West coast.
Our home offers a relaxed,comfortable and cozy space to explore this wonderful scenic area. We really enjoy living in our home and we enjoy sharing the experience of our home with other travellers.
