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.

We had a great stay in the caravan for two nights. Marie and Ger are brilliant hosts, very accommodating and friendly. The area it is in is beautiful, lots of scenic areas nearby to visit. The breakfast is amazing, one of us is a vegan and they were very kind to accommodate for her. Very much appreciated. Highly recommend.

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.

This place was the highlight of my trip to Ireland. I've rarely found such a unique, compassionate, friendly and warm environment as I have found with Marie and Ger. They have made my stay absolutely perfect, taking care of anything I needed, making incredible breakfast and just being very welcoming and lovely. If you are hesitating to book this place, just do it, it's a once in a lifetime opportunity!

We stayed in the Caravan for a few nights and it was lovely. Even though the weather wasn't great there is still plenty of places to go for a drive and lots of galleries to have a look around. Marie and Ger were great for suggesting places to go and recommended a couple of places to eat. The Caravan is nice and cosy at night and the area is so peaceful. It's definitely somewhere you go to relax.

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!

It was myself and my partners first airbnb experience and I couldn't begin to describe how wonderful it was. Marie and Ger were absolutely amazing hosts and couldn't have been more helpful. We had a beautiful breakfast every morning. The accommodation itself was out of this world. The scenery was stunning. If I had all day, I wouldn't be able to describe how fantastic it was from start to finish. Highly recommend.

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.
