We traveled with another couple, spent five days at the home.

It was perfect for us since we spent most of our days touring Ireland from Cork through the Ring of Fire and beyond. Very nice restaurants in the area. Fun times...would do it again.

this is an absolutely wonderfull place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of fourteen wiith all but two of us visiting Ireland for the first time. This house has been reviewed by many others all with glowing accolades and there is nothing we can add to those compliments. We found them to be all true, and would stay here again if given the opportunity. Everything in the village of Glenbeigh is within easy walking distance, pubs, restaurants, groceries, beaches and hiking trails.

The pictures don't do this lovely home justice!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Castle View Home for 8 guests. We were all instantly enamoured with the property. It is a lovely home, so well appointed. The beds were so comfortable...the bathrooms perfect...the amenities were all we could have asked for and more. The views are magnificent. I can't say enough about how wonderful our stay was!!! The town was quaint and welcoming. We were very satisfied with the Centra store/gas station, and an Aldi about 8 miles away. The Tower Pub at the bottom of the hill was inviting and had wonderful food and drink. Horseback riding on Rossbeigh beach was an added treat. The location of Glenbeigh was perfect. We spent a day on the Ring of Kerry, one on the Dingle Peninsula, and one driving to Cork and visiting Blarney Castle and the Blarney Stone. We were able to catch a train from Killarney to do an overnight and Dublin and finished our vacation with a trip to Cliffs of Moher, sadly, cutting our stay in Castle View short by one night. Using the Shannon Airport was only a 2 1/2 hour drive. Thank you so much....we couldn't have found a better location as our base on our first trip to Ireland. Beyond five stars! Clean, beautiful, well done....I should live so well at home! CHEERS!

Beautiful, family friendly house in a very convenient location

  • 5 of 5

Castle View was everything we had hoped for. Three living areas were perfect for the many families that came to visit during our month long vacation. Eileen had cleaners come weekly which was really great to come home to a clean house and fresh sheets. The linens are excellent, bedrooms were fine, and the house large enough to handle a big group comfortably. We had 2 minor electrical issues which Eileen responded to with superb customer service. The kitchen was well appointed with the exception of dull knives. We took a few to the Centra and they gladly sharpened them for us so problem solved. Would suggest adding an oyster knife and a rubber scraper to the kitchen tools. We love to cook and found the kitchen met our needs.

The view is lovely, so calming to watch the tide go in and out. Rossbeigh beach offers a great 6 km walk to the end and back with a very different feel on windward and leeward sides. The dunes are much bigger than what we have on the southeast coast of the US. Access to the Kerry Way hiking trail is 3 km down the road. I hiked to Windy Gap numerous times just to absorb the gorgeous vistas. The Sunday Market across from the Centra (grocery store Eileen owns in Glenbeigh) is a great place to purchase small gifts, cheeses, breads, knit hats, etc. Glenbeigh Seafood has terrific oysters and mussels and Patricia will show you how they clean shellfish for market if you buy from their facility near the bay.

The house is in a great location for exploring the southwest coast. We all agreed that if you don't want a city experience, Glenbeigh is the perfect spot from which to venture out then totally relax and enjoy Castle View and its surroundings at the end of the day. We especially enjoyed Valentia Island, the Kerry Cliffs, and Dingle. Killarney National Park offers at least 2 days of touring. The Blasket Island Eco tour was exceptional and the drive through Conor Pass was worth the fear factor!

I recommend Castle View without reservation.

Mom's 80th!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have had a more spectacular place for our week and my Mom's 80th birthday. The house, property and all the amenities were immaculate. The 10 adults and 2 children had plenty of space and we were more than comfortable. You will definitely enjoy your time here'
