We stayed at the 19th for 2 nights and enjoyed every moment! The rooms were luxurious and spacious, the beds were comfortable and the breakfasts were on a different level. Mary and James made us feel more than welcome and we are already looking forward to our return.

It has been my pleasure to stay several times with Mary and James. Every single thing about this wonderful B&B if perfect!! It is clean, warm, welcoming and homey. The family makes you feel like family and we always miss them when we leave. I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else when in Kerry!!

We have travelled to Ballybunion for the Listowel races for 15 years and after 9 years of bad b&b's we eventually found Mary and James and we have returned every year since.There is no comparison between...

My family (hubby & two little girls) and I stayed here in October. The owners James and Mary were so welcoming and friendly and checked us in in no time.
