My father and I stayed here in a two bed room in September '13. Beds were comfortable, bathroom was modern with good water pressure. Mary was very knowledgeable about the area and breakfast was pretty tasty. We only stayed for one night but my dad talked to Mary for a bit about the area and she recommened we visit Valentia Island if we had time (we were scheduled to visit Skellig Michael the morning we left her). And sadly we didn't get to land at Skelling Michael due to the waves, so we returned to shore earlier than anticipated and because of Mary's suggestion we ended up visiting the truly breathtaking Valentia Island.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Mary & Paddy Cartin invite you to stay at their modern and stylish fully equipped home overlooking Valentia Island just off the Ring of Kerry. Dramatic views from all guest rooms are guaranteed. Breakfasts from Mary's famous Full Kerry breakfast to Continental are offered. An ideal base for 3 - 4 day stays. We recommend a trip to The Skelligs Rock - spectacular scenery, birdlife and an incredible 6th century monastic settlement - a trip we can arrange and all who go say they will never forget. Also within a 10 minute walk is Reencaheragh Strand - sheltered and safe for swimming - benefiting from the Gulf Stream the water here is remarkably mild (by our standards!) ... more less
