Pros: The food was lovely
Pros: Staff very friendly, clean rooms, fantastic views and amazing breakfast
Pros: Don't miss out on the dinner, highly recommended and the wine matched the food perfectly. Hiking instructions provided by the owners, even got to lend his map. No reception for your mobile = big plus in my book! Very cosy rooms, lovely rustic stone house. Easy to find on Google Maps and parking space just outside the entrance.
Pros: The location is amazing, if you are coming to walk in the mountains then this is the place to start, it is nestled right in the heart of the Macgillycuddy's Reeks and the Kerry Way passes right past the front gate. There is a great little cafe and restaurant for evening meals run by the hosts, who couldn't be more helpful and accommodating.
Pros: Sandy and John are very cude and openhearted. Very nice breakfast.
Pros: Kindess, generosity and comfort.
Pros: The hosts knew we wanted to experience the Reeks, told us where to hike from experience Also the gourmet evening meal was way above expectations
Cons: Not a thing
Pros: Really this is a hidden gem unmatchable location really very beautiful (even with the bit of ‘soft rain’!)fabulous couple John and sandy warm friendly excellent hosts very knowledgeable about walking in the area and lovely food. One of the best places I’ve ever stayed. And then there is home made ice cream!!
Pros: Made most welcome and accommodation made for a meal despite a late arrival. A most charming place to stay.
Pros: We very much enjoyed staying with Sandy and John in the Bridia valley. The location is fantastic as well as the warm atmosphere. We really recommend you to stay the night and also to have the dinner at Stepping Stone B&B.

Pros: Brenda and Michael Cahill have a wonderful and charming B & B in picturesque Rossbeigh. A beautiful drive on the northeast side of the Ring of Kerry, with amazing views of the Dingle Bay and mountains. They were gracious and friendly hosts.
Pros: The accommodation was very comfortable - bright and clean with cheerful decor - in a superb location overlooking Rossbeigh beach. I was impressed by the fact that the dining room was open all day for tea/coffee/hot chocolate/snackbars. The breakfast was excellent. I would stay again
Cons: The room was a little cold later because eventhough it was August the weather was foul the night I stayed!
Pros: Great location. Brenda was lovely. I particularly liked the dining room with the bay windows and the sea view. Nice breakfast, and again that view. I'll be back.
Cons: Nothing really. I'm usually happy with just a clean room, but there was a lot more at the
Pros: I found Rossbeigh Guest House by luck. Actually, enroute to the area, there was a rainbow in the sky over their beach home. The location is overlooking the beach and absolutely stunning. The welcoming hosts - Michael and Brenda, ample rooms / view of beach / each modernized with ensuite / absolute cleanliness was beyond my expectation. Waking in the morning to the aroma of fresh cooked breakfast ranging from full Irish to eggs and smoked salmon! It is only possible to leave their home fully rested, well fed and cared for.
Cons: I can't think of a single thing.
Pros: Breakfast was excellent with a wonderful sea view.
Cons: Staff not available when checking in. I had to call. But then someone came immediately.
Pros: Breakfast was beautiful and location was exceptional. Overall a lovely and peaceful place to stay
Pros: Brenda and her "staff" (the family) bent over backwards to make our stay very pleasant. The full Irish breakfast was outstanding! The view from the room was breath taking. We'd definitely recommend this B & B and we plan to return there ourselves!
Pros: It's a beautiful location. I was made to feel very welcome by Brendan and Brenda and the room was very clean. The breakfast was cooked to perfection and the view from the dining area is gorgeous. The shower in my room was fantastic - in fact - way better than I have at home. Local amenities are close by with a pub on the beach front with a distinctly local atmosphere that serves delicious meals and is just just a few minutes' walk from the hotel. There is an alternative location for eating in Glenbeigh which is just a few minutes drive away, as well as a convenience store that is also the petrol station. If you are a motorcyclist you will love the location which is just off the ring of Kerry which is a fantastic road that passes some gorgeous scenery from deep valleys to high cliffs looking over the Atlantic ocean. If you are into stargazing you will love the clear dark skies although it would be better to stay clear of the one street light they have outside the pub.
Cons: As usual with Ireland, it's normally the weather that is very changeable and it certainly was during my stay. A good day is beautiful with far reaching views but when it rains, it rains! The local pub may be closed out of season but that's not really a bad thing as there is a hotel in nearby Glenbeigh, plus the convenience store I have already mentioned. Occasionally there may be an outage of the local broadband if the area is affected by adverse weather but the plus side is that the area has superb 4G coverage so lack of internet is not really a problem unless you really need it.
Pros: The location was amazing. Brenda was very helpful with sight seeing tips. We subsequently visited some awesome places that we wouldn’t have without the recommendation. The room being by the sea was very quiet and relaxing.
Pros: Loved the bedding. Nice to have a cotton blanket Delicious breakfast Coffee and tea always on offer
Located in Glenbeigh, The Glenbeigh Hotel is a 1-minute drive from Kerry Bog Village Museum and 7 minutes from Rossbeigh Beach. Free self parking is available onsite.
Pros: Friendly staff, comfortable and nice breakfast.
Pros: Beautiful gardens parking facilities hotel in beautiful village
Pros: The breakfast on site was good and plentiful. Staff were polite and we were warmly welcomed at the hotel despite arriving very late.
Cons: We were disappointed by the overall facilities at the hotel. The hotel is clearly very old. The check in register is so old school that it is actually a manual book (as opposed to most other hotels which have moved to a computer based system). There is no elevator at the hotel so we had to drag our luggage up the stairs. Although the staff were very friendly we only saw two employees at the hotel during our stay. The barman doubles as the receptionist and the waitress at the restaurant was also the receptionist when we had to leave. The furniture in our room was also old styled. There were very limited plugs which can be a challenge if you have mobiles and other technological items to charge up. The flushing in the toilet did not work properly and to conclude there was also this massive spider in our bedroom which although did not threaten to kill us was an unwelcome guest. Overall we would personally not visit again should we be visiting the area.
Cons: Wifi not great
Pros: Everything. Nothing was any bother at all. Staff so helpful and lovely.
Pros: The hotel has beautiful gardens
Cons: My mam and dad and my little girl stayed here as a treat for my dad for his birthday on the night we arrived we had our dinner here. When we had finished our starters and they were cleared the waitress came to tell us that what we had ordered (roast beef) was no longer on the menu. By no means was the restaurant that busy when it came to our desert the pavlova was like a rock when trying to take a piece it broke and flew onto the floor covering my clothes with cream and fruit. No compensation of any description. In the morning the power went out with alarms flying no one came to assure us that everything was ok. I know you can’t help power cuts but this was an in-house problem. The waitress found it very funny. There didn’t seem to be any management staff on the premises. The waitresses found it hard to take our breakfast order which was plain enough. We definitely won’t be staying here again for the price. The Brennan brothers could do with calling here.
Pros: Staff weretention friendly and helpful
Pros: Pretty location
Cons: Poor bathroom with really noisy cistern which kept us awake at night. Ours was supposed to be a luxury room for which we paid €165 a night : not worth the money at all for what was definitely not a high end room. No latch on the bathroom door so it just swung all the time, Such a mediocre breakfast too- juice was full Irish or pancakes or porridge : poor choices. Not impressed and won't be back and definitely wouldn't recommend staying there at those inflated prices.
Pros: Bed was unbelievably comfortable. Breakfast fry was excellent.
Pros: My relations had a very comfortable stay in the Glenbeigh hotel. They had a very good rest and they were very well looked after by the staff there.
Cons: They had no faults to find with their accommodation.

Cons: Everything was great.
Pros: Myself and my 11 year old daughter stayed here again. We requested an earlier bfast so we coild leave early to climb Carrantouhill. No problem with staff. Also allowed us use frideges for out packed lunches. Will be back. Staff amazing and so helpful and friendly.
Pros: Tasty pancakes!
Cons: No drying room No sidewalk
Pros: Large clean room. Great price. Minutes drive to the ocean and beach!
Cons: I booked our room through booking.com at a rate of 60 euros with free breakfast. When we arrived at property Eugene informed us that booking.com had screwed up and that we would have to pay 65 euros which we did as we had driven 3.5 hours to get there and then in the morning we were told that our rate didn’t include breakfast. We showed him our reservation and he begrudgingly let us have our breakfast. He was not gracious at all and made us feel like we were trying to take unfair advantage. When I explained that any issues he had with booking.com were with them and not us I was told to walk away. We own two stores in tourist locations in Texas and couldn’t believe how we were treated.
Pros: Snug, easy to access and find. Clean, comfortable establishment. Beautiful location.
Pros: My room was three flights of stairs up. OK now but think this should be told to the guest on booking as there is no lift this room would not be suitable for guests with hip or knee problems.
