Kells Bay House and Gardens is no ordinary B&B. This Ring of Kerry Bed and Breakfast offers luxury accommodation and excellent food, all in a wonderful location just 1 minute walk from a Blue Flag beach. The house, which is a beautifully restored and developed Victorian country house, is set in a wonderful 40 acre garden full of rare subtropical plants, walkways, sculptures and even a rope bridge.
This hideaway, although featured on TV and other media, is not very widely known. Many people in Kerry didn’t even know of its existence before its owner, Billy Alexander, won acclaim at the Chelsea Flower Show in 2018.
Guests at the house will enjoy great views of Kells Bay and across Dingle Bay as well as the surrounding mountains. It is no wonder that it is known as the ‘Jewel on the Ring’.
In this superior Ring of Kerry Bed and Breakfast we find the perfect combination of style, comfort, tranquility and good food.
All guests have the full use of Lounge/Dining Room in the Main House during the day and free access to the Gardens.
Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the house and there is free on site parking.
Even if you are not staying at this fantastic Ring of Kerry Bed and Breakfast, it is well worth visiting for the garden walk with its tree sculptures, exotic plants, sky walk and riverside paths. And you can have lunch (Thai) or snacks throughout the day or a fantastic Thai meal from 6.00pm. A great stop off on The Ring of Kerry!
