Coomassig View is located on the outskirts of Sneem where the 'Kerry Way' and 'Ring of Kerry Cycle Trail' meet before entering the village. There is a special walker's entrance to the back of the house which is directly from the Kerry Way. There are panoramic views of an expansive mountain range to the north of the house.
The bed and breakfast is approved by Fáilte Ireland. Hostess, Maureen Murphy, was nominated in 2006 for the Fáilte Ireland 'Irish Welcome Awards'. Coomassig View also received a Trip Advisor Excellence Award for 2012. All the bedrooms in the house are ensuite with a shower. There is also a television in each room. Guests are served tea or coffee on arrival.
There is garden seating outside to sit down to enjoy the scenery. In the evening, meals can be secured in Sneem which is only a 5-minute walk away. Extra-weary Kerry Way Hikers can get a lift in for free. They can also get their luggage transferred to their following accommodation on the trail. Packed lunches can be prepared given some advance notice.
