My five days stay at Taobh Coille, during my one month holiday in Ireland, was in every respect an exceptional experience. This is the real Ireland, this is the real Irish hospitality. I was treated as one of the family, a very warm family. Mentioning Agnes and John in the area opened a lot of doors, they are clearly very respected and appreciated members of the community. I had a lovely large and comfortable room, and I had the opportunity to appreciate Agnes's excellent cooking. The view from the breakfast room, over the Blasket Islands and the Dingle Peninsula, is absolutely unique. I have unforgettable memories of my excursions in the Kerry Mountains and Valentia Island, words fail me to describe the scenery, I have been travelling all over Ireland on numerous occasions, and this is definitely the part of the country that has most impressed me. And coming home in the evening to Taobh Coille and talking to Agnes and John about the adventures and the discoveries of the day, and hearing their stories, made it all the more unforgettable. I definitely hope to be able to go back to Kerry for another and longer stay at their lovely and friendly home.

Exceptional hospitality! We couldn’t have asked for a warmer welcome or stay with Agnes and John. We were warmly greeted and provided fresh homemade bread and tea. Agnes built a lovely fire for us and we enjoyed conversation with her. The room was private and very inviting with everything we needed and more. Breakfast was excellent!! You can’t beat the views or location either. Highly recommend!!

Great property! John was so kind and helpful. We were given info of where to eat when we arrived and John made us the best breakfast the next morning and telling us about his farm and animals. He made us feel right at home❤️
