Washing, Drying and Luggage Transfer Facilities

South Kerry is a wonderful location for outdoor activities, but if you’re out and about in Kerry there’s a good chance you’ll get wet – even if you’re not in the sea!

Caitins provides washing and drying facilities for residents, and there’s also a drying room where you can dry your wetsuits and other gear.
If you’re staying with us and you want to walk or cycle to your next stop, we can organise the transfer of your luggage.

We can arrange bicycle hire if you’d like to spend a day or two exploring Kells and its surroundings in a sustainable way.


Our friendly staff will be delighted to help you to arrange your ideal holiday. Availability for most trips is better if you can arrange them a day or two in advance.
Just contact us by phone or email.
