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 - please let me know in advance, in case there are guests who are averse to dogs (highly unlikely).
The house has 4 bedrooms-3 en-suite, and one with its own full bathroom. There is also a room with twin beds available with use of adjoining separate full bathroom.

Such a fantastic experience at Clare’s “Be and Be”!!! She truly has the most outstanding views and hospitality! It just kills me that we were only able to stay for one night! My husband, daughter and I were given the upstairs #6 (URL HIDDEN) very comfortable and roomy with big skylight-type windows that tilt to open onto the gorgeous countryside, both in front of and behind the home! We had a lovely time exploring Derrynane Beach, the ruin and an incredible diner at the Blind Piper. Back at the B&B my husband and I enjoyed sitting in the cozy purple chairs under our blankets and windows watching the approaching storm. As the rain hit our windows, obscuring our beautiful view we fell hard asleep to the sound of the pounding drops, exhausted from our travels. It was a delicious moment we will not soon forget! Clare’s fantastic breakfast , and conversation with her, Dezy and other guests in her lovely kitchen filled our bellies and souls. Know that Clare is chock-full of information as she also runs tours in the area! Did I mention the views?! My lifelong dreams of iconic Ireland come to life. Unforgettable. Thank you so much, Clare, for all that you offer! I desperately hope to return one day!

Response from Clare:
Thank you Dana for all the kind words - this is what makes sharing this remarkable place so worthwhile. I am so glad you thoroughly enjoyed that special room upstairs. This part of Kerry gets under one's skin and I look forward to hosting you in the future. We provide full itineraries for self-guided tours of various areas close by or you can take the day off and we can guide you for the day. Again many thanks, Clare

Clare's place is the perfect place to stay on the ring of Kerry. The location is the perfect jumping off point for daily adventures and the views are absolutely spectacular - the pictures here don't do it justice. Clare's warm hospitality made us feel so comfortable and well taken care of during our stay, I can't recommend their BnB enough!

Amazing views and host would definitely refer her property. Best accomodation we stay in while visiting Ireland. On the Ring of Kerry very easily to go for adventure and enjoy a stay on the most beautiful part on the circle.

If We could have put a higher grade, we would definitely have done it, because everything was more than perfect. Gorgeous place, with an amazing view. Very large room, very well decorated! Clare is very nice, open-minded, helpful and friendly, provided us with very precise pieces of information, and with a tasty breakfast in the beautiful lounge with a large view on the marvellous landscape of Kerry. It is THE place to stay in! Only critic: when you stay there, you don't want to leave! Therefore, we will come back for sure! Si nous avions pu mettre plus d'étoiles, nous l'aurions fait avec joie car tout était plus que parfait. Merveilleux endroit avec une vue fantastique. Notre chambre était très grande et décorée avec beaucoup de goût. Clare est adorable, ouverte d'esprit, accueillante, et se met en quatre pour aider ses hôtes. Les informations qu'elle donne pour accéder à sa maison sont très précises. Le petit déjeuner était copieux et excellent, servi dans le salon d'où il y a une vue à 180° sur l'un des plus beaux coins du ring of Kerry. C'est l'endroit où il faut absolument séjourner si vous allez dans le Kerry ! Une seule critique : il est difficile d'en repartir ... Une certitude : nous y retournerons !

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.
