The thing we loved most about staying with Clare and Dezi was the warm hospitality we received from the moment we arrived until we said goodbye three days later. When we came back soaked from an adventure at sea, Dezi gave me everything but the shirt off his back. If that was soaked I’m sure that would have been thrown in. Clare gives expert advice on how to find the gems to be found off the beaten path as well as how to get the most out of the famous sites to see. By the way, Clare’s food was the best we ate in Ireland. Everything you find in Clare’s listing is accurate with the exception of the photos. They don’t do justice to the beauty you will see. Caherdaniel is a wonderful community that hugs a bay on the Kerry coast. The people and the Blind Piper pub are unforgettable. If you work your way to the pier, you will find a boat that can take you to Skellig Michael. Clare can make arrangements if you would like to explore this world heritage site. The boat ride and the climb to the monastery (6th-12th century) aren’t for everyone, but if that’s your cup of tea, this is the place to drink it. Oh yes, we enjoyed the room and comfy bed too! [We loved the conversations, the food, the spare clothes, and Dezi’s music!! Kathy and I were made to feel completely at home.] [Vermont, USA,2015]
