About this listing
This glamping site offers accommodation and breakfast in a vintage caravan and gypsy wagon ( see Chez Shea Gypsy Wagon- also listed with Airbnb) Both have been carefully restored, featuring very different vintage interiors. Come and check us out!
Spend some relaxing time in our restored 1979 caravan-very retro, very sweet and cosy. It has two single beds, a small hob, fridge and a gas heater. The beds are comfortable -but they are not particularly long and because of this would not be suitable/comfortable for very tall people. The caravan has a toilet and shower block nearby- with one shower and two toilets-sink, heater. On this glamping site, the bathroom is shared by a maximum of four people at any one time. If the dates you want are not available - please check out our other airbnb listing 'Chez Shea Gypsy Wagon'
The price includes breakfast- we serve a simple vegetarian breakfast, which is brought to your door each morning. There are limited cooking facilities in the caravan so its possible to prepare simple meals. We have a 'things to do' drawer which has a selection of games and puzzles for your enjoyment. Or- why not bring your knitting and a book and enjoy some time out!
This location provides a good base for people who enjoy hiking, hill walking, and peace and tranquility. There is a pub and a restaurant about 5 kilometres from the house. It is also within driving distance of the Ring of Kerry and the Ring of Beara- both of which are very scenic. Another idea for a day trip would be to take the tunnel road from Kenmare to Glengarrif - possible stopping off at Lorges Choclatiers, Molly Galvins traditional Irish farm and Ewe Sculpture Garden- drive back to Adrigole, over the Healy Pass which has a great view of Glenmore Lake and back home!
Guests may also enjoy interacting with our dogs, cats, ponies, donkeys and chickens- all of whom are very happy to meet new admirers and possibly be taken for a walk!
We supply all bed linen and towels.

Unser Aufenthalt bei Marie und Ger war einfach perfekt. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Das Frühstück war immer sehr lecker.
Die Umgebung ist sehr schön zum spazieren und entspannen. Die beiden kleinen Hunde und die Katze sind so süss, ich vermisse sie jetzt schon. Am liebsten wären wir noch viel länger geblieben.
Vielen Dank für diese wunderbaren Tage bei euch. Ich hoffe wir sehen uns wieder! Und danke für die Oats :)
I will just be repeating what everyone else says. Place is fun, cute, comfortable, relaxing, beautiful . Marie and Ger are great hosts. Breakfast was great, local recommendations were great. The entire area (the Beara Peninsula) is just beautiful. Can't say enough about our hosts, or our time there. Thank you Marie and Ger. It was the one of the highlights of our trip.
My sister and I stayed with Marie and Ger for two nights and it was everything we could've asked for. The place is exactly as it looks in the pictures and provided the precise Irish charm we were looking for. You have to drive some pretty winding roads to get to them, but the place and the views are so worth it once you do. Marie and Ger were very sweet and accommodating. We couldn't have asked for a better introduction to Ireland.
Marie and Ger are such a lovely couple with adorable kids and many friendly animals in the part of the country that surrounded by breathtaking views.
The caravan was so pretty, equipped with everything you'll need, it's nice and cosy, little birds flying around and singing. Not to mention Marie makes the nicest porridge and cakes.
They really have created a heaven on earth, wish I'll be back soon. I had 3 amazing days stay in the caravan so will you.
Marie & Ger were most welcoming during our short stay, helpful advice on local attractions and beyond. Most of which we followed up on. Thoroughly enjoyed the beara Peninsular drive
Great location, beautiful site and unique accomodation. Highly recommended
Everything about staying here was delightful. We found getting directions there was best done by putting the coordinates provided into the GPS. The farm is remote, but in a beautiful area that is worth the drive up the long, winding dirt road. Marie and Joe were so friendly and helpful and gave us a very informative breakdown of our camper and of the towns nearby.
The camper itself was adorable and was incredibly (and surprisingly) well equipped. There was a fully stocked mini kitchen, a nice space heater, tons of games and books, multiple plugs for charging and whatnot, and plenty of linens and towels. In addition it was just incredibly charming and made staying in a camper more exciting than a nice hotel. The bathroom was very clean and nice considering it is separate from the camper and wagon. Both mornings, Marie and Joe made us breakfast which was both incredibly kind and also very delicious (you can't always count on that last part in B&Bs but the meals were very good).
Honestly I would return to Ireland solely to stay here again with these kind people, in this cute camper. Anyone on the fence because of its remoteness should take the plunge, it's well worth it.
Just back from a few days in Lauragh, Maire and Ger are two warm and generous people they give you so much information about walks and all the places to visit in the area. Breakfast was lovely, best brown bread ever.. and i got the recipe too. Looking forward to a return trip.

About the Host, Marie
My partner Ger and I live with our three children on the Beara Peninsula in Co.Kerry. We live on a small farm which has been in my family for four generations (at least!)The family trade was shoe making, and locally some of the older people still remember this place as the shoemakers house. We all like old things-and that has led us to the idea of setting up a small vintage caravan site. We keep Kerry bog ponies- which are a native Irish breed, donkey's, chickens, ducks, cats and dogs. We are both very interested in local history and love to discuss this with our guests. Funnily enough, I do have a life motto, or life plan. Its quite simple-MFB which stands for 'Make Fehanaugh Beautiful.'- Fehanaugh is the name of the townland we live in, and it's quite beautiful already- but I'd like to help it along.
