Thoroughly enjoyed a 3 night stay in this wonderful house in January 2015 and I can imagine what it would be like in Spring, Summer or Autumn. The host and staff were very welcoming and the accommodation was superb. We dined in their Thai restaurant which was top notch and very reasonably priced for the quality provided. As a keen amateur photographer I had lots to keep me busy both in the gardens and the general area, even in the depths of winter. Highly recommended!!!!

My wife and I moved to Kerry from Dublin last year, we have two boys and two dogs. We usually stay in Ireland for holidays. We booked into Kells Bay House in mid-July this year. Had not been to Kells previously. The gardens are fabulous, a real wonder and the kids loved it. The scenery is breath-taking there. The food and hospitality was top class. Felt very relaxed and welcomed there. The Dingle Bay suite really is great and can easily accommodate more than four. It is a little secret Narnia Land there so we will be going back for sure before the season closes. There is so much History there as well. One evening, we took a 10 minute relaxing stroll from Kells Bay House to the Kells Bay beach and pier. Parents & kids were in heaven there. Time stands still in that part of the world and you get the chance to appreciate time along with the undisturbed beauty of S W Kerry. We then travelled on to Valentia and Portmagee to wrap up a fabulous and magnificent experience of what S W Kerry really has to offer. It is not cheap but it is very reasonable and excellent value. Like I said a return trip is on the cards to relive that experience once again before School beckons.

The perfect place for a quiet getaway. A beautiful & wonderfully comfortable house nestled away in the depths of nature. The rooms are spacious & really comfortable, merging the classic old style with a contemporary feel. Our room had a great view out over the treetops across to Dingle Bay.The grounds are absolutely amazing.. stroll in the deep green & enjoy the fantastic wooden sculptures. My favourite was the reclining chair carved into the tree truck which spans the river far below, and where I can't wait to get back to & lie reading a book listening to the water flowing on a warm spring or summer day. I didn't try the Thai cuisine this visit, but I hear it's fab, and I'm really looking forward to getting back there in April, spending a day wandering the gardens/ strolling down to the beach 5 mins walk away, and then coming back for a Thai feast & an evening reading by a blazing fire! If you're looking for silence & a complete switch off in luxury... this is definitely the place to go!

Die Ferienwohnungen haben einen altenglischen Landhaus-Charme (mit Ausnahme der einen billigen, kaputten Kommode). Mit der richtigen Wohnung gibt es auch einen atemberaubenden Block auf die Kells Bay. Der Blick vorbei an Palmfarnen und anderen exotischen Gewächsen. Kleinutensilien in der Wohnung könnten mehr vorhanden sein - der nächste Supermarkt ist 15 Minuten entfernt. Der Garten ist ein Wahnsinn - beim Spaziergang (oder besser Wandern) fühlt man sich nicht selten wie im Dschungel.
