My husband and I stayed two nights at Salmon Leap several years ago. We picked it because we wanted a farm B&B just outside town but still near Killarney and we could not have been happier. Our hosts were charming and gave us a warm Irish welcome with tea and biscuits. The B&B is pretty well appointed and although it is definitely historic and it shows, the rooms have all been updated and renovated and were very comfortable and clean. The breakfasts were very hearty and though there was variety we could not get enough of the traditional Irish breakfasts so we did not stray from the standard fare. Our hosts were helpful in pointing out local interests and we actually remember finding Ross Castle by accident while looking for another attraction and we can recommend not missing Ross Castle it was a guided tour that was very interesting. Killarney overall was extremely fun and friendly town and we did experience traditional Irish music in the pubs during the evening. Though Killarney is a touristy town, the people were very friendly and welcoming. My parents stayed at Salmon Leap 2 years ago as well and had a similarly good experience. I would not hesitate to recommend Salmon Leap as the best place to stay for touring Killarney and you can be sure we'll be back sometime ourselves!
