Very good hospitality from Sophie and Phillipe. Super fresh breakfast and nice view. Located on the near side of Castletowne Bere - can explore Glengariff, Garinish Island, Dzogchen Beara, Dursey Cable Car and Allihies. Beara peninsula offers an interesting alternative to the ring if Kerry. Highlight is walking the East side of Bere Island - take 10.30 ferry out, 2.30 back or later. Good attention to detail in Covid era (reviewer is a doctor)
We stayed at Rodeen Country House B&B in early July 2020, just after the inter-county travel restrictions were lifted. We chose Rodeen over other B&Bs because they had listed their Covid-19 safety measures on booking.com and we felt reassured that they were taking it seriously. They didn't disappoint! We were very satisfied with the measures in place and felt safe there. The B&B was spotless, the hosts Philippe & Sophie were lovely - very friendly and extremely helpful, the breakfast was just gorgeous, the accommodation was cosy even though the weather didn't co-operate and the views were beautiful. We had everything we needed and they had some really lovely touches here & there. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we would really highly recommend Rodeen Country House B&B!
Very tastefully and comfortably furnished and our host made us very welcome. He had spent a lot of attention to detail to give the house bags of character. The grounds were very pleasant for a stroll after breakfast before we left for the next leg of our trip. A different twist on breakfast - a lot of care had gone into preparing it - not just the usual "fry-up"! Some good tips on our ongoing route and we took his advice regarding a stop for lunch in a little café on the peninsular for the "best Fish and Chips on Beara". Josie's Lakeview House.
This is a corrected review, as I mixed up 2 places. The owners, Philippe and Sofie, were fantastic and made us feel at home. The grounds were beautiful, as it used to be a garden nursery. Our room was very nice, with a great view of Castletownbere and the water below. The bathroom was quite small, but there are plans to remodel it. Breakfast was VERY good !! It is a short drive to town, and there was parking readily available in September (15th). The road to town is narrow, so you might need to backup to a wider area if a car is coming the other way. It was clear for us both ways. I would definitely stay here again !!
Stayed here for one night and wished we had stayed for longer. From the moment we checked in with Sophie , we had the feeling of really warm friendly people. The rooms are lovely and overlooking the bay. Yea/coffee and little biscuits are in the sitting room for guests to use, lovely touch after a long drive. Breakfast was amazing, freshly squeezed orange juice all the cereals cheese meats etc you wanted as well as pancakes and organic porridge and plenty of tea/coffee. Lovely gardens to walk in after breakfast or sit in evening and enjoy the view. Will definitely be back to stay here again. Thank you for a wonderful stay. My Spanish friend is still talking about your home, he said it was the best nicest place we stayed over the week. All the best of luck in the years to come. …
