Our stay with Agnes and John was like visiting family. They welcome you into their home and want you to make it yours. They truly have the gift of hospitality and deserved their B & B of the year award. You will never go hungry or thirsty or lack for anything in their home. The views of the bay are spectacular and we loved watching the sheep close up. We enjoyed having tea and scones in the evening and the delishous full Irish breakfast in the mornings. When told what a fantastic host they are, Agnes says, "You should always show kindness and have a sense of humor." They have both in spades!

What a piece of heaven on earth this BnB turned out to be! Steven and I were looking for an option last minute, as we'd had to change our plans and wanted to stay longer around the Killarney region. And then Taobh Coille popped up on the list of options. From booking to checking in, Agnes and John were fantastic. Fantastic is almost too small a word to describe their welcoming hospitality, their kindness, wisdom, and amazing souls. They made us feel right at home, and it was hard to leave! Breakfast was amazing, the rooms were spacious and clean, and the view... The view was heavenly to wake up to every morning. My only regret is that we didn't stay longer - but next time, we know where to go! Thank you, Agnes and John, for being so amazing. God bless you both! Julia & Steven from Canada

The O’Sullivans home is so beautiful with breathtaking views! We were so very lucky to get to stay here and Agnes is now a lifelong friend. Their farm is to die for and you can’t beat the location. We will absolutely stay here again. This BnB is not to be missed!

Fabulous B&B! Located right on the Ring of Kerry, this place is a working farm as well. The room (beds & bathroom) was comfortable, breakfast was great (including eggs from their own chickens and French press coffee). You can walk to the sea (great view over Dingle Peninsula) over their own land in about 10 minutes. Agnes & John are lovely people who are truly happy to welcome their guests. There is a social/breakfast room with views around and over the sea. Also there is a fridge, games and a small reading room. Plenty of parking space. Couldn't have been better 😃, would definitely go back!! If you can get a room, don't hesitate just book it. Price/quality value is excellent.
