Sheila was a lovely lady. Made you feel very welcome. Our rooms were very clean. Nice sitting room which was very homey. All in a beautiful rural setting. Awesome breakfast and pretty table setting. Other guests thought it was hard to fine, but it has a well marked sign at the street.

Sheila couldn't have done any more for me. Early breakfast of porridge was very tasty and set me up for the day. A few funny stories in the mix made it a very enjoyable stay! Note no credit card facility so make sure you bring cash.

Would Recommend to anyone wanting to stay in Kenmare. Perfect location with an idealistic veiw. Stayed in #5 with an ensuite. Very comfortable and clean, although a bit chilly. Sheila was a lovely hostess.

Shella, the chief cook and bottle washer, is a hostess and a delight to be around. She knows the areas to see and which to avoid. She made us so comfortable from the moment we came in (without notice or reservations) that we opted to remain for two days. The breakfast was a real treat and she in confided to...

My husband and I stayed at White Heather Farmhouse for three nights during our honeymoon in Ireland. We were warmly welcomed by Sheila as soon as we walked in the door. She was very kind and gave us helpful advice. The view was beautiful and we loved the fact that we were staying at a working farm! Sheila cooked a...

It is a proper farm as you have cows in the back but you may not see them if you don’t walk uphill after the house. It is conveniently located 3 km after Kenmare in direction of Glengarriff. Warm welcoming from Sheila and big clean rooms. The Full Irish breakfast was really nice. For me, overpriced but did not have...

Sheila was extremely sweet. She was very attentive and made sure we were comfortable, had everything we needed, and provided recommendations on where to eat. The rooms were cozy and breakfast was delicious. Beautiful grounds to walk around on as well. Close to the town but just outside enough to be out of the city center. Would definitely recommend!
