Check in was quick and efficient (be warned - the hostess is a chatterbox, which we loved!). Room was clean and comfortable. Irish breakfast was very nice, bacon cooked to perfection & decent sausages. We were only in Ireland for two nights for a wedding, so didn't really get to see much of the local area, but from what we...

The view outside our window was breathtaking. It really immediately made you feel at peace and truly that you were in Ireland. We had the full Irish breakfast the first morning which was delicious and eggs and bacon the second morning which was just as good. The owners were super polite and welcoming, made you feel at home. Feel free...

Recommended by a previous B&B and met all expectations. The B & B had put together a booklet that was extremely informative of the area and although our stop was to short to take in the activities offered it is defiantly on the list of places to return to on the next visit for access to great hiking/walking routes and...

Most wonderfull place to stay if you want a great view. Nice welcome from the host and husband where very friendly. They give us some good advise where to go to and the man organised us a jaunty ride through the gap of dunloe at a very reasonable price. Suggestion.......choose for once the smoked salmon and scrambled eggs......delicious!

This B&B is all about location. It is at the edge of the park, and is walkable to trails and restaurants. The hosts and the facility need some rest and relaxation. The shower design flooded the room. The beds were well worn. The sheets were very unpleasantly stained.

My husband and I stayed here during our trip to Ireland this summer. The rooms were very nice and well kept. Nora was super helpful and friendly and gave us many itinerary suggestions. She had so many great tips we actually changed our plans and were happy we did! We took a cart ride through the Gap of Dunloe with...

Beautiful views of Killarney National Park. Set in the mountains, so very quiet. Host John Ferris very hospitable. Home and rooms are very modern with beautiful furniture and hardwood floors throughout. No lounge for relaxation in evening. Be sure to ask about jaunty rides. We stayed two nights and wish we had known to ask. No one offered any suggestions...

Had the pleasure of staying at this little gem early this month during a 10 day excursion with my best friend. We had a bit of trouble locating it thanks to a weird GPS unit, but easily found it after asking directions. It is located right at the Gap of Dunloe, so it is about a 15 minute drive outside...

We waited till dark to attempt to find this gem and had some problems, but a quick phone call from the locals and Nora drove into town to meet us and lead us back. Her and her husband John were so congenial and down to earth. Breakfast was amazing (thanks John!) The next morning John took us on a carriage...
