San Antoine Bed and Breakfast on the Wild Atlantic Way is a family run business with over 60 years in the hospitality industry.  Your hosts Alan & Ann are the second generation of the Landers family offering visitors the personal touch.  We have 6 en-suite guest rooms in close proximity to the town(10 minute walk to the town centre).  We pride ourselves in giving our guest the best advice on what’s best to do and see in the South West Kerry area.

Planning a trip to visit the Skellig Rock?  Portmagee is just a 10 minute journey from Cahersiveen and is the main departure point for the landing boast to the Skellig.  Whether you're a Star Wars fan or just someone with an interest in seeing how the Monks lived on a Rock 8 miles off the South West Coast, then San Antoine is an ideal location to begin your trip.  Since the launch of Star Wars 'The Force Awakens', getting a place on one of the 12 licenced boats has become difficult, but there is an alternative with some operators offering an eco tour of the Skelligs(no landing just a trip out and around the Skelligs) which has become very popular and a lot less expensive. More on the Skelligs

Cahersiveen on the Ring of Kerry is an ideal location to explore and use as a base, while you travel on the Wild Atlantic Way.  This part of the country is steeped in history with archeology around every corner Castles, Ring Forts, Ogham Stones & Megalithic Tombs to mention but a few.

Daniel O'Connell was born in Cahersiveen (6 August 1775 – 15 May 1847), often referred to as The Liberator or The Emancipator, was an Irish political leader in the first half of the 19th century. He campaigned for Catholic emancipation—including the right for Catholics to sit in the Westminster Parliament, denied for over 100 years.  The O'Connell Memorial Church in Cahersiveen carries his name and is one of the only Catholic Churches to be named after a layman.  His parents Tomb can be seen in the grounds of Holy Cross Abbey behind the Main Street of Cahersiveen.

Monsignor Hugh O'Flaherty another famous Kerryman is buried in the grounds of the O'Connell Memorial Church, Monsignor Hugh O'Flaherty, CBE was an Irish Roman Catholic priest and senior official of the Roman Curia, and significant figure in Catholic resistance to Nazism.  During World War II, he was responsible for saving 6,500 Allied soldiers and Jews.  His story is told in the 1983 Gregory Peck Film “The Scarlet & The Black” and more recently through a published biography “The Vatican Pimpernel” by Brian Fleming.

For the walker 'The Kerry Way' is our Camino Way with a trail just over 200Km and takes approximately 8 days to complete.  In Cahersiveen there a number of walks locally - Cnoc na dTobar (The Hill of the Wells) is a pilgrim trail that offers some majestic views and on a clear day you can see the Skelligs and the Dingle Peninsula.  Another is the Beentee Loop walk.

The Iveragh Peninsula offers some of the most breath-taking scenery as you travel around the Ring of Kerry. Including The Skellig Ring voted in the top 10 of the Lonely Planet things to see in 2017

Valentia Island is another little gem off the Ring which can be explored as part of the Skellig Ring, which offers spectacular views of the Skelligs, Portmagee, Ballinskelligs, St Finnian’s Bay and the Fertha Estuary with views all the way up to Cahersiveen Harbour and its marina.
