At The Old School House Bed and Breakfast guests can expect the finest of Irish hospitality from the moment they arrive. We are too middle-aged fun loving and interesting people who love to sing together and make people happy. We love to tell our guests about the history of the house and share a few laughs by the fire in the evening. Dominick loves to share stories of the past and can also help plan your day with local maps and best walks and hikes in the area. We look forward to welcoming you.

Dominick and Lilian couldn't have been betters hosts. The best part of our stay was their lovely company. Dominick and my son played guitar together and sang Irish songs after we enjoyed dinner at a wonderful spot by the beach recommended by Dominick. It was great craic! Their 1800"s school house provides a look into the past with original wood floors, original chalkboard, etc. The location of the property is perfect for exploring Valentia Island and the surrounding penninsula. Also, a great home base for taking a boat out to Michael Skellig.
