One Night is Never Enough

    The warmest of traditional Irish welcomes awaits guests at our family farmhouse bed and breakfast here at Derryeast Sneem, County Kerry.

    When you arrive; by car, foot or bicycle, prepare to be pampered from the outset, with tea, coffee and homemade baking to greet your arrival. From start to finish your comfort is our top priority. With twenty eight years of hospitality experience, we really know how to make our guests comfortable and feel at home.

    Our guest bedrooms are warm and very comfortably appointed with en suite facilities, including power showers, and complimentary toiletries. All the guest rooms are downstairs, so are easily accessible, and all have beautiful views over our farm and the surrounding glorious countryside and mountains.

    With our home set on the Ring of Kerry Road, and beside the Kerry Way Walking Route, we can offer a tranquil but not isolated base for walkers. We are happy to organize the drying of your equipment if required.

    We can also prepare packed lunches and arrange luggage transfer for walkers on the Kerry Way and cyclists.

    Trips to Skellig Islands can also be arranged.

    Once settle in you can stroll around the farm and enjoy a tranquil sit beside our lake, you can play tennis on our hard tennis court, or you can try your hand at the ancient Irish skill of turf cutting here on the farm.

    In the evening, if you don't want the 10 minute walk or 2 minute drive into the thriving village of Sneem, we will happily drive you there ourselves, and collect you later in the evening when you have had a chance to sample your choice of the delights of Sneem's pubs, restaurants, cafes and takeaway. Alternatively spend the evening in our guest's lounge, where you can watch satellite television or curl up in front of the turf fire and read a book, and perhaps enjoy one of our special Irish coffees. Then enjoy a restful sleep and, on rising, a wonderful breakfast of your choice from a wide selection, including full Irish (with locally sourced produce and free range eggs), home made bread, Mary's famous whiskey porridge, cereal, fruit and yoghurt, or cold meats and cheese.

    All this, and much more, adds up to why our motto is, "One night is never enough," and why we have a special offer of a 3 night stay or longer at a 10% discount.

    Take a look at some of our reviews and you will see why Derryeast Farmhouse is the place to stay while you enjoy the delights of Sneem and its surrounding mountains and beaches.
