This glamping site offers accommodation 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!

The space

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 quoted here includes a simple vegetarian breakfast. It will be brought to your door in a basket. 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.

This is a very adorable camper off the beaten track in Lauragh. It was nice to get away from the crowds and have some peace and quiet out in nature. The area is just beautiful so driving back and forth to the camper is like driving through a postcard. I have to give 6 stars for the breakfast because it was delicious!! Seriously best breakfast (and healthy) I had had in awhile. I highly recommend this unique place to stay!

Such a wonderful place. The caravan had everything we needed. The breakfast brought to us each morning was delicious. We had a lovely time exploring the beautiful land near the caravan and spending time with Wicket, their adorable dog.

I highly recommend staying at Marie's place while you are visiting Ireland. This area was by far the best part of our trip to Ireland. Although the Caravan is somewhat remote, it is perfect for those who want a truly unique and off-the-beaten path experience. There is so much to see and do around this area- the Beara Penninsula has a lot to offer! It is not flooded with tourists, the scenery is breathtaking and there was excellent food! The Caravan was very clean, warm and calm. We loved sleeping underneath the stars with views of the mountains! The hosts were excellent and provided us with a lovely breakfast during our stay and lots of suggestions about what to do in the area. It is definitely recommended to have a car if you choose to stay at the camper. It is worth the drive! Also, the hosts have a very welcoming pup who made us feel right at home. This was such a memorable experience- definitely looking forward to returning!

I loved everything about this place. It's a part of Ireland I would never see as a tourist. It was so beautiful and I was so thankful to Marie and her family. Driving there was a challenge but being there was the most relaxed I've been in all of Ireland! ❤❤❤ This part of my trip I am most thankful for.

Precious, delightful, and if you like unique lodging - this is for you! Both caravans are spotless, hip, and just fantastic. I can't say enough about what Marie and Ger have created and we feel very lucky that they've shared this place with the Airbnb public. Delicious breakfast (especially the pancakes). Love Willow and Wicket (the dogs) and Brian O'Malley (the cat) and all of the Beara Peninsula. Wish we could go back right now...

I had a lovely stay at Chez Shea. I had booked for 4 nights and ended up staying an extra night. The glamper was perfect for a cozy, comfortable little hideaway. I was in the area for a family-type reunion right down the Coast Road, and even though Chez Shea is out in the country it was only minutes to get to the events I was going to. My cousin, Kitty, knows the family and told me some stories about the area where the glamper is located. I loved the daily breakfast choices which were all delicious and healthy. Ger and Marie were very friendly and checked in with me every day. The dogs were great, Wicket became my little buddy! The pony and her foal were an added benefit as they were just outside my window. I highly recommend Chez Shea to anyone looking for different and unique lodgings in this beautiful area of Ireland!

The caravan was one of our favorite places we've ever stayed. Ger was an amazing host. The location is in one of the most beautiful places in Ireland. We highly recommend staying here.

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.
