Skelligs House has got four bedrooms, three baths, a living room, a kitchen – where one finds hardly anything to desire, a utility and last but not least, the most beautiful conservatory. (A friend of ours who had difficulties with the term used to call them “aquariums for old people” but I assure everyone – young people will like it there too. When I first saw the house in the beginning of June 2008 I was enthused right away. It is a bright, spacious, friendly house with spectacular views. Located near the Ring of Skelligs, which for me is even nicer than the Ring of Kerry, it overlooks the Atlantic and the Skelligs (Here Skellig Michael). The Ring of Skelligs is much smaller, much more Irish and - best of all - no buses can go on it.

Worse experience ever
Upon arrival at night the house appeared very well put together. However after evening showers and walking around, we all noticed how dirty our socks were. When pulling back the bed covers in the 3 rooms we used, each bed had hair and dirt in them. The internet never worked. We only stayed 1 night and left the next morning to find a cleaner place. Beware-the house sleeps 8, but you are charged for any add'l person after 2. There is a hefty cleaning fee. You have to pay for oil and electricity. You must haul out your own garbage to town and even buy your own garbage bag in town. I asked the management team 3 times prior to arrival what the cleaning cost was, and was never answered. I'm sure the owners are extremely nice people, however they should change management companies. Oh yeah, I never received a refund. I would have gladly called the owners that night if we had cell service, but with no internet, we had no cell service. We had booked for 4 nights and could only take it the first night, since we arrived late and town was too far away to try to find something else. We have stayed in many other rentals and have never had an experience like this. It's too bad this didn't work out, we were so looking forward to this home.
I am very sorry I could not make this person happier.
I sat here thinking about a comment and thinking about what I could have done.
Everything can be sorted IF people talk to each other. Just moving out without letting anybody know, does not solve anything.
Great escape to a remote but spectacular location.
It is hard to put into words how much my family enjoyed our stay. Everywhere you turned there was beautiful scenery. The walking trail enhanced the visit with an opportunity to hike high in the hills for even more gorgeous scenery.
we were looking for a nice quite getaway and this was the perfect place. We enjoyed preparing our owns meals and watching the sunsets.
Stunning views, House bigger than it looks, well equipped and very spacious.
The views are stunning. Even for an Irishman this place is at the end of the world.
The house is very comfortable, the rooms are larger than expected and two of the bedrooms have attached bathrooms.
Plenty of tableware and pots and pans. There was coffee, tea, sugar, salt and pepper etc in the house and some herbs - so, nice to have the little things you may have forgotten.
The welcome from Mary was fabulous and she met us in a nearby village to escort us the last few miles.
The only improvement would be the bed mattresses. They are typical for a rental and not exactly Hilton standard, bluntly some need to be replaced.
Other than that I would say - "Perfect" It would be my first choice to stay here again if visiting the area.
Loved it. Great walking after day of touring. House was great. Was plenty of things to find to do in area. Spent 90% of time in glass enclosed room.
Mary was marvelous!!!
Yet again another guest, that might get addicted to the Irish West? Thank"s a million for taking the time to share your experience. I am very glad, you liked it.
Our group of seven spent two peaceful nights at Skelligs House as part of our travels around Ireland, and we all wish we could have spent more time to spend there. The view is possibly even more stunning in person than the photos suggest. Due to the seclusion of the house traveling to and from takes some time, so plan on spending some time enjoying the beautiful scenery, and give yourself plenty of time to arrive. We absolutely recommend going on the Bolus Head hike.
The house was clean, spacious and the kitchen was well stocked. Two things to be aware of: we didn't realize the house didn't have wifi available so be prepared to unplug, and the first morning we ran out of water for a period of time due to the amount of showers and a load of laundry running so go easy on the water supply.
Margitta was wonderful to communicate with and very helpful. We definitely recommend spending a few days relaxing at Skelligs House.
Wir haben einen unvergesslichen Urlaub in einer wunderschönen Gegend erlebt. Alles hat super geklappt, Marry der Kontakt vor Ort war sehr freundlich. Das Haus ist super ausgestattet, gemütlich und sauber. Wir haben es jeden Morgen genossen im Wintergarten zu frühstücken und dabei in die Skelligbay zu schauen. Die Wellen und Felsklippen, dahinter die grünen Weiden, das sich oft innerhalb Minuten verändernde Wetter - diese Bilder bleiben unvergesslich. Wir haben viele Ausflüge gemacht und die Umgebung erkundet und viel Schönes erlebt und gesehen. Wir können dieses Urlaubsziel nur weiter empfehlen!
Vielen Dank für die liebe Unterstützung.
Just a little more than 5 miles from the beautiful 'Blue Flag Beach' (European award for exceptionally clean beaches and very clean waters) at Ballinskelligs, and from the local pub, Restaurant, Post Office and Grocery Store of Ballinskelligs.
