Guidance on what to do and where to go - lots of ideas.
See what I have written on this site for a start....this is a country home rather than commercial concern....funding creative projects + supporting the local economy of artisan bakers, cheesmakers, growers, farmers and suppliers...local organic produce is the mainstay of the wholesome breakfasts/wholesome luxury breakfasts

This part of Ireland is an absolute paradise and very untouched and empty of modern infrastructure and you will have the feeling that you have the entire place to yourself - especially Beara peninsula - when the weather is dry - when the sun is shining is is even more glorious that that - but this is Ireland so ......sorry I cannot guarantee or control the weather.
1.Lots of French doors in the house, so lock them as you close them.
2. Eco friendly energy saving CLOTHES DRYING in slatted shed and then airing rack in utility room - can take one to two days.
RECYCLE by washing and cleaning plastics and paper and organic waste also.

I run this ecological B&B made out of hemp* Sleeps x 6. Rooms from E70 per night.. I have travelled a good deal myself and understand the value of meeting locals who can give detailed, personal advice. I think if you like the images of my house and the offering of natural/organic etc. you will love Kenmare and environs anyway and I try to provide information to give a personalized portal into the best of its many hidden offerings.
I am a regular hiker, explorer of the area close to hand and the two peninsulas and can give you daily guidance at breakfast time on what most suited to your desires and depending on the day's weather. I have produced a book on the urban heritage of the town and appreciate Kenmare's special character as a fine example of a 17th planned estate town. I can advise on best authentic food, music, eating and shopping experiences of which Kenmare is well supplied.
If you like nature and natural surroundings, outstandingly stunning landscape, great hill trails, eco-living, conversation, sitting in the library room, exploring mountain paths and ancient monuments then going into town for fine dining experiences and live music you will find plenty to do here for several days on end.
I have travelled around most parts of Ireland so I can offer advice on your onward journey from here.
