We were picked up from a small cafeteria, just few meters "outside" the OFFICIAL KERRY WAY path. Once we get in our room, it was warm, clean and we receoved a hot cup of tea and cake. The view from the dining room is just WONDERFUL and our hosts were very friendly and professional in the meantime. Dinner was very...

We had a lovely stay for one night in December. Our hosts had a fire going when we arrived and made us a cup of tea. The bed has an electric blanket, which was amazing. We sleep very well, and in the morning the hosts made us a huge breakfast. The rooms are clean and simple. And the views from...

Agnes and John were awesome. Agnes gave us advice on places to see and eat, made a call to see if the boats were going out to Skellig or not, which they weren't due to weather. Beautiful view, water on one side, mountain on the other. Agnes had a fire going and tea and cakes ready for us when we...

Everything was excellent! The bed was so cozy and warm-the breakfast was delicious-and Agnes and John were great! They thought of everything and made us feel right at home (but even better)! We definitely recommend staying at Taobh Coille!

Taobh Coille, Irish for 'woodside', is a working farm in Kells, Kerry that also operates as a cozy bed & breakfast with authentic Irish charm and fantastic views over Kells Bay. The ancestral home of my grandmother is currently in the O'Sullivan family, so I reached out to Agnes in hopes of gaining consent to visit the property. She invited...

Was one before at the same place, nothing has changed, simply because of the family running the B&B. Booking this time with 5 people including me, kids were attracted with the animals and the adults about the view and... and...

From the minute we stepped into her home, Agnes made us feel welcome. We only stayed at this beautiful home one night, but Agnes and her family made us feel so welcome. They are so friendly and truly good people. Their home is lovely and the view is breathtaking. Wish we could have stayed longer. If we ever visit Ireland...

This place is special to us. We loved the beauty and peacefulness of the location of the farm. It's pastures fill the space between a mountain and Dingle Bay. The owners are genuine lovely people. John O'Sullivan took time to show us the farm: the peat stacked up for winter use, the hen house (collecting eggs for our breakfast), his...

Perhaps the finest family in all of Ireland - Agnes, John and their daughter (who we met) make you feel like family the minute you show up at Taobh Coille. I found her Irish Soda Bread recipe on a blog in 2007 that was included in a moving story about her hospitality to the traveler writing the blog. I made...
