Hazelwood B&B has a perfect setting. From most windows one can view Kenmare Bay and from some, the mountains. When we were there in late April, the mountain peaks were still snow covered. A sheep grazed in the grass surrounding the property. A short walk down a winding path led to a secluded beach. Inside, the house is warm and welcoming. The large sunlit dining/sitting room has an inviting fireplace with comfortable leather furniture. The en-suite bedrooms are well appointed with comfortable beds and spotless bathrooms. Breakfast is a delight with farm fresh eggs and homemade muffins, fresh fruit and yogurt. The proprietess shared the history of the house with us and also offered helpful sightseeing hints. This home is a jewel on the emerald isle.
