Interaction with guests

We can give you great local knowledge, meet you in the local Town of Cahersiveen to show you the shops and facilities, then if you wish to drive ahead of you to the House in Portmagee.
Or alternatively, We can leave you check yourself in if you are arriving late, we can arrange to leave the key outside the door for you if we are gone after cleaning the house. Thanks

The neighborhood

Its quiet, peaceful, scenic and relaxing. My Uncle, Aunt and Grandmother live next door on the farm so there is always help at hand and friendly banter.

Getting around

You will need a car to get around especially to the local town, but the village is only about a mile away on the road but shorter to walk along the beach (safer at low tide). if you like cycling its a great way to see the local scenery. Can also hire a taxi and scenic tours

Other things to note

Directions to the house:
When in County Kerry, from Killarney/Tralee/Farranfore to Killorglin follow signs for Cahersiveen, we can meet you in O'Sheas B&B in Church Street Cahersiveen in the middle of the town and direct you to the Atlantic View Villa or if you want to explore and find the house yourself its very easy to find and sign posted all the way.
Take the main RIng of Kerry road from Cahersiveen to Portmagee and Valentia Is, turn right at Kerry foods (old creamery) where there is a little shop and petrol pump. Go straight along the road and drive through the village of Portmagee, turn left at the Fishermans Pub (opposite the pier)
follow along 'New Road' on the Skellig Ring until you see a sign for Reencaheragh and Reen Coast B&B turn right (between two houses)
Drive down the hill towards the beach, you will come to a junction where there is a white farm house and Kathleen & Jerrys yellow house 'Reen Coast B&B' and ours is the peach house beside it. We will leave a key for you.

Hi As a member of Airbnb I love the concept that one can view all the beautiful places around the world and dream :) and if one has the opportunity to travel they can have a personal link with a host not through a big booking or marketing company who doesn't care about the person. I became a host to help link people to a beautiful place called Cahersiveen where I grew up, I don't live there anymore (due to a lack of jobs & facilities for young people) so apologies if I can't meet you during your stay but I am freely available to contact for advice or information on the beautiful Skellig coast in the Kingdom of Kerry. I am the link for a lovely small cosy quite B&B/accommodation for my parents where Patrick will look after you during your stay.

We are sports mad and South Kerry is the perfect places to stay and train- cycling, running and swimming in lakes, sea and rivers. Hire boats for fishing and Angling, Visit the Skellig Islands, Scuba dive, Snorkel. Drive The Skellig Ring, Tropical Valentia Island and the famous Ring of Kerry. Relax by the beaches, read, write and paint - it's an Artists' dream with long day-light hours and beautiful scenery.
Only one hour drive from Killarney (with its Mountains and Lakes), Tralee (the home of the Rose Festival) and Kerry International Airport.
