We were traveling Ireland without a detailed agenda, so were booked B&Bs as we went along. While the Annagry B&B was full for the nights we were to stay, Danny and Fionnuala, made "the Cottage" (generally available by the week) available to us for a two night stay (at the B&B price). We were soooo fortunate.
It's not in town, but within an easy stroll (less than 10 mins). The cottage was very nice and the cozy with plenty of room to be together separately, when we wanted some alone time (these were days 4 and 5 on our 14 day Irish adventure). The breafast menu was varied and the meal was well prepared.
A computer for guests (in the breakfast dining area) to use came in handy.
When we asked Danny for suggestions as to how best enjoy a day on the Beara Peninsula, he suggested "a nice walk around the Gleninchaquin Park and provided us with a hand drawn map. It was a wonderful experience for this mid-50's couple. To get there we had to drive down the world's longest driveway (about 4 KMs)...a single lane road that required us to honk the horn around every turn (and someone backup and divert off the road when two cars met, which only happened once). And the walk, well the walk was really a mountain hike ... LOL. BUT THE SCENERY...THE SCENERY WAS PRICELESS. Views of the lakes, hills, the glacier carved valleys, sheep that traversed to the top of hills that mad one wonder as to WHY on earth would they do such a thing??? Danny was spot on; a great day on the Bera P.
We ate a dinner at the Coachman's Inn. And if Michael O'Brien is playing, be sure to get a late dinner reservation and stay for the show. It was a packed crowd; with many locals in attendance. He was the most soulful Irish muscian and singer that we heard on our two week adventure. It was truly an unexpected treat and a real pleasure.
Kenmare and Annagry is what we call a "do-over". And we will within the next few years.
