  • "We had a lovely week at oak view, a warm welcome from Eileen, who could not have been more helpful ."

    Beautiful setting over looking the lake, and in one of the loveliest parts of Ireland

  • "Directions were not good."

    As you reach Lauragh, turn left just after the church directly in front of the Sheebeen Bar (THIS IS NOW A CAFE WITH A DIFFERENT NAME}.- follow the sign for Josie's Restaurant. The owner's house is just to the left of the hostel (THIS IS NO LONGER A HOSTEL BUT A SCHOOL AND THE OWNERS HOUSE IS ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF THE LANE NOT TO THE LEFT ) - the name "O'Shea" is outside. You will collect the keys from the owner's house and then be directed to Oak View from here. THE INSTRUCTIONS SHOULD SAY THAT IT IS APPROX 3 MILES FROM THE ORIGINAL TURN TO SAVE LOOKING AT EVERY PROPERTY THAT YOU PASS LOOKING FOR A HOSTEL. IF YOU ARRIVE IN THE DARK YOU WOULD NEVER FIND IT.

  • "Lovely home, set in the peaceful, quiet and wonderful surroundings, amongst the Caha Mountains, close to Glanmore Lake."

    There was a nice welcome from Eileen, the owner, when I arrived, and she kindly showed me around the property, and explained the heating systems etc. I was looking for a chill-out, and Oak View was a perfect place to stay, and is a great base from where the beauty of the Beara Peninsula can be explored. Recommended.

  • "Beautiful, quiet location and owners who were very welcoming and helpful."

    We travelled around the Ring of Kerry, but also discovered the real jewel, which is the Beara Peninsula. Also there's a lovely tranquil garden approx. 20 minutes from the cottage called Dereen gardens; well worth a visit. Overall, very relaxing and comfortable.
