I had such a lovely stay at Taobh Coille with Agnes and John. As many other reviewers mention, they really make you feel like part of the family. It is a beautiful home and location, the food is delicious, and it’s near many sites and attractions worth visiting. I can’t recommend this B&B highly enough.

1st time we take a B&B, and the stay at Taobh Coille was fantastic. Agnès and John are lovely 🥰 We felt like we were member of the family. Spending time with the lamb was a very good discovery for us. Agnès breakfast was absolutely delicious. Rooms are are perfect We will comeback soon

Es war ein fantastischer Aufenthalt. Die Gastgeber sind sehr herzlich und fürsorglich. Wir haben uns direkt sehr gut aufgehoben gefühlt! Der Ausblick aus dem Fenster auf die Dingle-Halbinsel ist ebenfalls ein totales Highlight. Sehr leckeres und frisches Frühstück (Eier gerade erst von den eigenen Hühner reingeholt). John war außerdem so nett, uns am nächsten Morgen zurück zum Kerry-Way mit dem Auto zu fahren, damit wir nicht an der Hauptstraße zurückwandern mussten. Absolut empfehlenswert und sehr gerne wieder!

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.
