We hated this place. It was also exceptionally difficult to find. While part of me wants to list its wrongs - from the blaring tv in the family area to the cheap, uncomfortable bedding - I just feel exhausted even thinking about it. It should be said that the owner was perfectly nice and friendly, although seemingly more concerned with...

Lovely location, nice bathroom and delicious breakfast. Situated up on the hill with amazing views from some rooms. Walkable distance into town. Mary gave good recommendations for eating spots and places to visit. This accomodation would be improved by access to WIFI and also tea/coffee making facilities. I had to knock on the door to get the code for the...

This guest house is a 10 minute walk from the pier in Portmagee. Mary could not be more pleasant and helpful. We were cycling and she took care of our bikes and belongings for the day while we visited Skellig Michael. I would recommend Calafont to anyone/everyone.

We stayed here for 2 nights, Mary was an excellent hostess, she fed us well at breakfast and when we arrived home from our Skellig Michael experience she did everything to ensure wet clothes were dried and we were kept warm. Very clean rooms and facilities. Thank you Mary

We loved staying with Mary in this little town. There's nothing much to the town itself, but we used it as a stopping off point when visiting Valencia Island (highly recommended!) and of course the Ring of Kerry. The bed was very comfortable, and our favorite part was the skylight in the bathroom....it was very soothing to hear the rain...

Stayed here for one night. Main purpose of stay was cycle. Great location for cycle. Very close to Valientia Island and Coomanaspic climb and walking distance from Portmagee. Very nice shower and bed. Went for the option with no breakfast but Mary still gave us a few bits on Sunday morning. Great hostess. Secure shed for bikes. Excellent value. Would...

We stayed with Mary for one night in early August on our way to Skellig Michael. We enjoyed a warm welcome, and plenty of local information from Mary. She also booked us on to the boat for Skellig Michael. Our room was very clean, comfortable and spacious. Breakfast was generous and very tasty. A great spot to stay if you're...

The calafont B& B is a wonderful location, with delicious breakfasts overlooking an amazing sea view and the B&B is only 10 minutes away from Portmagee. Mary was very helpful with trying to book the skelligs for us and showing me an amazing beach near the B&B where you could have a morning swim. I would recommend this B&B for...

I stayed in the Calafont B & B for two nights. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The location is ideal. You are only a ten minute walk from the town, which means that there is no noise pollution and an amazing display of stars on a clear night, just maybe throw in a torch as the lights on this road...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Mary & Paddy Cartin invite you to stay at their modern and stylish fully equipped home overlooking Valentia Island just off the Ring of Kerry. Dramatic views from all guest rooms are guaranteed. Breakfasts from Mary's famous Full Kerry breakfast to Continental are offered. An ideal base for 3 - 4 day stays. We recommend a trip to The Skelligs Rock - spectacular scenery, birdlife and an incredible 6th century monastic settlement - a trip we can arrange and all who go say they will never forget. Also within a 10 minute walk is Reencaheragh Strand - sheltered and safe for swimming - benefiting from the Gulf Stream the water here is remarkably mild (by our standards!) ... more   less
