Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Ann was kind and helpful, packed us a lunch and was sure to help us get out to the Port in time to catch our boat! The French Toast was delicious, the place was exactly what we needed for our short trip to explore the area! Would definitely recommend.

We really enjoyed our stay with Ann and Ian on our Wild Atlantic Way adventure. Lovely accommodation and very good breakfast. In the morning I felt we could have stayed chatting all day learning more about the history of the area and the Skellig Islands in particular. This B&B is just a short car ride into Cahersiveen where there is a good choice or pubs and restaurants for an evening meal. We followed our hosts' suggestion and visited Valentia Island via the nearby shuttle ferry, coming back by the bridge at the other end of the island. This B&B was a great find and one that I would highly recommend.

I can’t say enough good things about this B&B. Travelling around Ireland, I’ve noticed that it’s the people that make some B&Bs special, and that is certainly the case with Cul Draiochta. Our host (unfortunately, we didn’t get her name), offered us tea, coffee, and cake when we arrived. She went out of her way to make our stay comfortable and gave us some excellent recommendations for dinner and local events. Our room was bright and we happened to look out to the back of the property where chickens roamed. This was a hit for our one-year old. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom was clean. The breakfast was excellent, and you can tell that care was put into the food preparation. We’ve had a wide range of quality when it comes to B&B breakfasts, and this was definitely good, quality food.

Four of us stayed in October for a night . The hosts could not have been nicer . The accommodations were excellent. This is a great place to stay . Advice on local restaurants and pubs proved to be right on the money . The surrounding landscape was exceptionally beautiful.

This place was just wonderful, the innkeepers have thought of everything. Very intelligently and professionally run. They have a cute dining room stocked with an assortment of special teas, hot chocolate, cookies, and other things so that travelers can have a snack at any time. They offer a huge breakfast menu, and use so many special, local ingredients - I had the best ever Irish yogurt there. The rooms are also stocked with lots of little things you may need, as well as having extremely comfortable beds and linens. Our room faced the back of the house and had the most lovely mountain view, as well as a view of the back garden complete with chickens and fragrant rugosa roses :-) The hosts were so friendly and helpful with driving us to dinner and to the bus the next day. It is about a 15 minute walk into the main drag of Caherciveen, so you could also walk from here easily.

A very comfortable, welcoming, and well-run B&B. A nice, bright room with crisp, white linens and plenty of sitting room. A very comprehensive breakfast, with great coffee. Very fast WiFi. Big hand basin in my ensuite bathroom, along with separate shower and bath. Very accommodating and friendly hosts. Nothing is too much trouble, including getting reservations for walking on Skellig Island.

Cul Draiochta is a warm and friendly B&B. It is clean and well kept both indoor and out. The innkeepers Anne and Ian are attentive to every detail to help make a stay with them one to remember, The first afternoon we arrived Anne had set out tea and carrot cake for us. The made to order breakfasts were excellent with very good coffee or tea. It is served in a sunny cozy breakfast room. Boxed lunches and a three course meal are avaiable by reserving them the day before.I read that you can do your laundry there, but did not do so myself. Anne and Ian helped us get boat tickets for The Skelllings. This time of year they sell out quickly. They also kept us up to date on weather conditions as they related to the boat venturing out to The Skillings. It all worked out perfectly for us and we made the very impressive trip. As we were leaving for a to drive to Limerick they sugggested we take a scenic route through the mountains to reach Adare. The mountain pass was as picture perfect as I could have imagined. The road wound through very steep mountains overlooking verdant valleys where sheep grazed. Pristine mountain lakes dotted the valleys. In places the road was canopied by beautiful rhododendrum trees. We were in the Killarney National Park. Thank you Anne and Ian for tipping us off about this sensational drive! One of our "Ireland's Bests."

We were assigned this B&B by Hillwalk Tours. Anne was great! She picked us up from our hike, stopped and let us get a bottle of wine, and then prepared a wonderful dinner for us. The next morning her son took us to our drop off location. Breakfast was great as well. We could not have asked for a more welcoming and helpful host!
