I stayed in Arus Antoine with a friend for a weekend in early August 2005. Having stayed in many B&Bs around Ireland I was very disappointed with the standard of this B&B. The room consisted of a double and single bed (fine, as a twin room was requested), a wardrobe and dressing table that appeared to have been salvaged from a skip, a portable tv located over the head of the single bed, the only window in the room was a velux/skylight, a windowless ensuite with a rickety fan that sounded like a chainsaw, a door with a glass pane above it where the hall light shone in all night. The irish breakfast was extremely greasy - the standard I have become accustomed to in other irish b&bs are grilled breakfasts, this clearly was not the case here. However, the homemade bread was very good. To cap it all, we were overcharged for our stay. I emailed later to advise of this, stating that I did not wish to challenge the cost at the time of payment as I was not certain of the quote. I was surprised to receive a defensive reply scowling me for not mentioning it at the time and would I be in Kerry soon to obtain the refund, even though they were in possession of my credit card details. I then requested that an online donation be made to Goal, an Irish charity, if my details were mislaid. I have yet to receive an acknowledgement that this request was carried out.
My advice to anyone thinking of booking this b&b is to think again. The spiel on the internet states that it is custom built b&b, I disagree given the room that we stayed in.
