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 a point 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.
