When Agnes found out we were newly engaged, she tried to make our visit extra special, giving us a gift and even calling Radio Kerry to have our engagement announced! Our full Irish breakfast was lovely, and Agnes gave...

My husband and I were on our honeymoon and decided we wanted to travel around the Ring of Kerry. It was absolutely gorgeous, but terribly windy, rainy and cold. We arrived at Taobh Coille early, but nothing felt better than to be greeted warmly by farmer John. He was just heading down from the hill feeding the sheep and cows....

We had a lovely stay for one night in December. Our hosts had a fire going when we arrived and made us a cup of tea. The bed has an electric blanket, which was amazing. We sleep very well, and in the morning the hosts made us a huge breakfast. The rooms are clean and simple. And the views from...

Agnes and John were awesome. Agnes gave us advice on places to see and eat, made a call to see if the boats were going out to Skellig or not, which they weren't due to weather. Beautiful view, water on one side, mountain on the other. Agnes had a fire going and tea and cakes ready for us when we...

Everything was excellent! The bed was so cozy and warm-the breakfast was delicious-and Agnes and John were great! They thought of everything and made us feel right at home (but even better)! We definitely recommend staying at Taobh Coille!

Taobh Coille, Irish for 'woodside', is a working farm in Kells, Kerry that also operates as a cozy bed & breakfast with authentic Irish charm and fantastic views over Kells Bay. The ancestral home of my grandmother is currently in the O'Sullivan family, so I reached out to Agnes in hopes of gaining consent to visit the property. She invited...

From the minute we stepped into her home, Agnes made us feel welcome. We only stayed at this beautiful home one night, but Agnes and her family made us feel so welcome. They are so friendly and truly good people. Their home is lovely and the view is breathtaking. Wish we could have stayed longer. If we ever visit Ireland...
