It is off the beaten path (and most definitely a working farm), but still a good spot for exploring Dingle. If you go in the summer, the roses in the gardens are numerous and gorgeous. The ensuite baths are good sized, and Kitty's breakfast are custom-cooked.

Kitty was warm and welcoming through out our entire stay. The food was wonderful, the rooms were richly decorated and cozy. The bathrooms were big for a B&B. I loved watching the cows parade in and out for milking. The house was clean and the scenery was prestine. A truely wonderful place to stay.

This was our second time to stay at Palm Grove and we have enjoyed it very much both times. The quiet location of the guest house appealed to us. We appreciated the excellent home cooking provided by Kitty Nagle, especially the tea and scones/tart provided in the evenings. Not to be recommended for anyone wishing to lose weight! Kitty goes out of her way to make your stay enjoyable. We consider it excellent value for money.

Kitty welcomed us warmly into her home and the stay was fantastic. The location is great - down a little boreen off the main road. Convenient for trips to Cahersiveen, Killarney and An Daignean (Dingle). Her house is great, the accomodations wonderful and the breakfast - simply the best.
However, it's the warmth and charm and "the craic" that made the stay memorable.
I'm already looking forward to a return trip.

This is our 12th year staying with Kitty and Family in this lovely farmhouse. A fantastic B & B with scrumptious food, en-suite rooms and car parking facilities. A very warm and friendly Irish family.

Kitty & Pat opened their home to us & made us feel like we were part of the family. Great hospitality, location & all the amenities, including made-to-order breakfast with the freshest milk from their working dairy farm.
