We were lucky enough to get a last minute booking at the newly renovated apartment at the back of the Sleepy Camel. The owners, Mary and Con O' Sullivan, and their daughter Jennifer, couldn't be more helpful and friendly. The apartment itself is spacious, beautifully decorated throughout and cosy in the evening times. It has everything that you need for a trip away. It also has a large garden area for children to play in. We also went to Mary and Con's restaurant, The Rosspoint. It's located at Rossbeigh beach. The food is really nice and the staff working there are so friendly. The view is breathtaking and it's a perfect location to relax after a long day sightseeing or at the beach. Thank's to Mary and Con for making our trip away so enjoyable. Sarah Durbin.

My wife and I stayed here in a double room on our third night on the Kerry Way hike. We received a very friendly and enthusiastic welcome which brought smiles to our faces. Our room was bit tired looking, but that's not a complaint as it was comfortable and clean. The communal lounge was a very comfortable place to unwind after a days hiking. The self catering kitchen was well appointed. It's only a short walk to the supermarket and pub. It is a comfortable and great value place to stay for a night.

Stayed here on day3 of the Kerry Way. Got a great welcome from the manager (Chris) who was very helpful. Room spotlessly clean and newly decorated. Oatmeal and toast provided for breakfast. Central location ideal for walkers. Will definitely visit again.

We booked a double room and were given a tiny twin room. 1st bed comfortable, the 2nd single bed was awful. It had a plastic mattress which made you sweat and made a noise when you moved. Walls were very thin so could hear snoring from all directions. No hook in the room (the door hook looked old and was broken off) Two showers, in one room but only one worked. Only one toilet on the floor was open. No where to dry wet clothes. No where to hang my towel in the room, everything had to go on the floor. Bread and toast making facilities in the kitchen along with tea and coffee available. Large sitting area but closed at 9.30 (even on Saturday night!) Clean but facilities were very varied from room to room. Disappointing for what we paid.

My daughters and I walked the Kerry Way this summer. We stayed at Sleepy Camel on our Glenbeigh waypoint. I was exhausted and a little daunted because I was trying to keep up with two 22 year olds ( found out it was impossible). But staying at Sleepy Camel turned my mood and energy level. We all loved it—the primary reason being the proprietor host, Chris. What an amazing hotelier—the best hotels in the world could learn from his example. He went out of his way to make our stay comfortable and pleasant. Truly, when I started out the next morning, I was refreshed because of his attitude, as were my girls. A few hours in to my walk I even got a phone call asking about my welfare’s! Wow. At our next stop we told a hiker going in the opposite direction to stay there and continued to extol its charms as we met others. It’s been 8 months since we stayed at the Sleepy Camel and life got a bit hectic, but for those entire 8 months I’ve been determined to write this review because of how much we appreciated the kindliness of Sleepy Camel and it’s caretaker. Thank you again for your graciousness.

I've stayed here twice and it as good a hostel as you will find anywhere. For 23 euro a night it is quiet, clean, comfortable and run by a friendly gent. I had access to everything I needed and got a good night's sleep. Great value. Good location inside the town of Glenbeigh - handy for tired, hungry (or thirsty) hillwalkers.

We had great night at Sleepy Camel while on the Kerry way. Chris gave us a great welcome, and our twin room was extremely clean and comfortable and quiet, with a sink and a nice view across the town main street. There is excellent living room space downstairs, and a well equipped kitchen and dining area, with plenty of space for all. There was also cereal and toast provided the next morning. An excellent price for a good stay.

Tops, excellent and highly recommend. Simple, clean, great village location and within one minutes’ walk to three excellent local pubs, also located within a five minute drive to Inch beach. If you are planning to do the ring of Kerry then Glenbeigh is an excellent starting or finishing point. Managed by Chris who was very hospitable, flexible and made our group feel very welcome. We will be back.
