WHEN WOULD YOU LIKE TO STAY?
Mary & Paddy Cartin at Calafont B&B invite you to stay at their modern and stylish accommodation, fully equipped home overlooking Valentia Island just off the Ring of Kerry. Dramatic views from all guest rooms are guaranteed. Breakfasts from Mary's famous Full Kerry breakfast to Continental is offered. An ideal base for 3 - 4 day stays. Calafont B&B is an easy drive from Cahersiveen or Waterville. We recommend a trip to The Skelligs Rock(a World Heritage Site) - spectacular scenery, birdlife and an incredible 6th century monastic settlement - a trip we can arrange and all who go, say they will never forget. The picturesque village of Portmagee is within walking distance with its great pubs, restaurants, traditional music and dance. Overlooking Portmagee Channel with views of Valentia, Bray Head and the Atlantic Ocean. Things to do locally include a visit to Glanleam House & Subtropical Gardens, Valentia Heritage Centre, Valentia Island Ice Cream factory, producing award winning ice cream in many flavours, Tetrapod Trackpads, laid down some 385 million years ago and so much more to see and do.
Staying at Calafont was excellent, you have a great view from your bedroom window as well as from the breakfast room of Valentia Island and other spectacular views just around the corner. There is a warm and welcoming atmosphere at this B&B, especially thanks to Mary, your host. She`s always ready to give you tipps and there to hold a conversation with. Breakfast is delicious and the coffee is good and strong. I have already been there several times and I am definitely going to come back!
Excellent hospitality, accommodation and food also excellent. Mary very helpful with local information. Just a little further out than we expected.
We had a great time in this small little town. Our host was very eager to help us and her home was neat and quiet. It was our first of 8 b&b's in Ireland and it was one of our favorites. Though we already had reservations to go to Skellig Michael Island she called and double checked that we were still on the list. She had recommedations for food, entertainment, hiking and biking and the Kerry Cliffs were close enough that a person could have walked there.
We are just 1 hour drive from Kerry airport, taxi services can be arranged.
