My family (husband and two adult daughters) wanted to visit Skellig Michael, and tried to book with Calafont B&B. She was booked,so referred us to her neighbor, Kathleen O'Driscoll, who owns the Reen Coast B&B. We couldn't have been happier! Kathleen is hospitable, the rooms are comfortable, and we had a wonderful, hot full Irish breakfast. The B&B is in the countryside near Portmagee, about 2 km. from the town center. Kathleen has three rooms; our daughters had a bath en suite, while our bath was across the hall (not a problem at all!). Kathleen offered us tea on the evening of our arrival before she went off to football practice for a charity game.
We drove into Portmagee for dinner. I think that you could probably walk in about 20 minutes or so, but the roads are narrow (as is usual in Ireland) so you'd have to watch traffic (which was minimal when we were there).
Kathleen has two friendly beagles (outdoors) and is close to a sheep farm.
Kathleen also booked our Skellig Michael trip for us with Casey Boats (highly recommended). When my daughter left her book at the B&B, Kathleen was kind enough to take the book down to the pier and have it delivered to us as we left Skellig Michael.
