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- a selection of muesli, fruit, yoghurt ect. We can cater for people on a dairy free or vegan diet. 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.
We are fortunate to live in a beautiful unspoiled landscape. Our aim is to have as low an impact on this as possible. With this in mind we operate a number of eco-practices. These include recycling, composting, use of ecological cleaning products and energy awareness.
We ask that guests do not smoke in the caravan.
This little camper is such a treat! Marie and Ger are amazing hosts and made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. The camper is so comfy and decorated with such imagination and (email hidden)d the food-- delicious and homemade. We HIGHLY recommend this experience. We spent 2 weeks in Ireland for our wedding, and this place and the town nearby are by far among our favorite memories.
Hosts made us feel really welcome, the place was even more lovely than the pictures. Very relaxing time in beautiful surroundings.
Spent a very enjoyable three nights in the caravan and two days exploring the area on foot - lots of good walking. The caravan was comfortable and clean, and warm even at night in March. It was good to be able to make simple dinners. I loved Marie's breakfasts delivered every morning - both Marie and Ger went out of their way to be welcoming and helpful - I felt very spoiled. All in all a wonderful break!
This was the most amazing stay in Ireland. The caravan was beautiful and we loved the details. Marie and her husband were so thoughtfull, they even called a restaurant in town to check if they were still open. A delicious breakfast and the atmosphere was so relaxed. It was a great experience to stay here and we will definitely come back again. Thank you guys!
My sister and I had the most incredible time in the glamper. Marie and her family create a really one of a kind, amazing experience. Very memorable and a hilight of our trip!
Great place for a break away. The caravan is very comfortable, cosy and warm, even in the depths of Winter!
Marie and Ger are very welcoming and helpful hosts and made sure we felt right at home. The breakfast is simply outstanding and is delivered direct to your door so you only need open your eyes and sit up!
It's a great place to use as a base for hill walking as there are many mid-size peaks and good trails within a few minutes drive of the caravan.
Highly Recommended, any time of the year.
Staying at the camper was the highlight of our trip. Not only was the camper itself so unique an experience, but Marie and Ger were such kind and welcoming people. The location is a bit of the path, but for us was exactly what we were looking for. All the details in the camper make it extra special- the cute light fixtures, art, books, games, tea... The view of their property is breath taking, as was our two course breakfast! We had the most delicious porridge with cream and honey,plus scrambled eggs with goat brie and sundried tomatoes. I see now that they offer dinner upon request,and in hindsight would totally take them up on that next time. We grabbed take away from nearby Kenmare, which was quite good also. The dogs were very friendly. I highly recommend to make it To Chez Shea if you can!

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.
