Owen and Mary Patricia O’Sullivan's well-named farm guesthouse is beautifully situated overlooking the Beara peninsula, with field walks through farmland down to the shore - and, despite its peace and privacy, it’s also exceptionally conveniently located, just a mile from Kenmare town.
Mary Patricia provides old-fashioned Irish hospitality at its best, with welcoming and efficient reception and spotlessly clean accommodation.
A pleasant guest lounge has stunning views and plenty of tourist information and Irish heritage books - and Mary Patricia is herself a veritable mine of local information.
Spacious, comfortably furnished bedrooms have the considerate small touches that make all the difference to the comfort of a stay. There is even a small fridge on the landing for guests to use.
No dinner is offered, but breakfast is a feast of fruit salads, yoghurt, cereals etc as well as a choice of scrambled eggs draped with locally smoked salmon, pancakes or traditional Irish. Some beautiful home-baked breads and scones are also offered and there is a fantastic view from the breakfast room over the Kenmare Bay and the Beara peninsula.
*Glen Inchaquin Park is nearby and should not be missed - and also make apoint of taking that walk down to the sea shore. If you go quietly, you’ll see rabbits hopping to your left and right as you stroll through the wildflower-strewn meadows.
