Interaction with guests

"Be and Be" ... It's the place you go when you need to stop "doing and doing" for a while and just be ... and be. Spend a few days - take day trips out and return to the beauty and peace.
In this spirit we'd appreciate all guests to value this haven of rest, reflection, inspiration and creativity.
We work from home and our time is flexible so we are available to chat about the area and give you great tips and pointers to other areas. When not hosting Airbnb guests we run intimate tours on the Iveragh, Dingle & Beara peninsulas and Killarney Lakes region. If you'd like a break from the driving I'll be happy to take you around and show you the gems 'off the beaten path' - a full day trip or half day trip....€140 / €80 in my vehicle.

Other things to note

The many activities from our doorstep include: boat trips to the Skelligs, swimming, horseback riding on the beach, walks; in the forest, along the rocky shoreline, along the "Kerry Way", diving, fishing (sea & lake), stargazing (designated "Dark Sky"), historical sites including Daniel O'Connell's house + great tea room.

I'll gladly accommodate your dietary needs (eg vegetarian)-just let me know in advance.
If you'd like to bring your dog - just let me know in advance.
The house has 4 bedrooms-3 en-suite, and one with its own full bathroom adjacent (as well as a twin room).

When you are doing the Ring of Kerry, do a stop at Clare's house! You will love it, trust me, we did too. The house is halfway the ring, so the perfect place to take a break for a couple of days and just enjoy the stunning views (you can see the sea from your bed in some rooms), an amazing host, the lovely nature around and the beaches which are close to the house! Our room was great! It was big, clean, the best seaview, a proper en-suite bathroom, a big dressing room, a make up table women dream of and even electric blankets for our bed(we came in March)! And in addition to that Clare prepared a bottle of water and glasses in the room, a small gesture we really liked and the water tastes really good there. From the living room with a small fireplace and tv you have an amazing view over the countryside and sea, the perfect spot to relax after a busy day of exploring the area. The house was spotless all over, just perfect! Clare is an amazing host who loves her fully loves her job and is just great at it!! She was there for us from pre arrival to after departure, very helpful and pro-active, answering all our questions and giving us tips what to do, where to go and when it's the best time to go. She knows the area very well and loves to share her knowledge with her guests. And she makes very delicious breakfast, loved the porridge! It was one of the best accommodations we had during our Ireland roadtrip and we will definately be returning!

Dezy and I both love to show off the beauty of Ireland paired with great entertainment and thoroughly enjoy meeting new people from all walks of life and all persuasions. Dezy is a professional entertainer, pianist, playwright and songwriter. I love to cook and organize.
Dezy is Irish (60s) and I'm South African (50s) with US citizenship. We have toured all over the US doing house concerts and have lived in Naples Florida and Portland Oregon besides Ireland, the UK and Dezy's 5 years in the Netherlands. We are committed to our passions, following our dreams and facilitating others to follow theirs. Dezy's musical play "Not the Life I Ordered" is central to his work.
