I give this B&B 5 stars only because I cannot give it more. There is a very good reason that it rates #1 on Trip Advisor. It is absolutely perfect in every way.
The location is fantastic. Walking the grounds is pleasant and refreshing, The house itself is perfect. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was equally as good.
But the main attraction is Mary. What a wonderful person. She was very helpful in arranging our itinerary while in Killarney and for the next day when we were travelling on to the Dingle peninsula and the Ring of Kerry.
We are a group of 5 couples who have vacationed around Europe together for several years. Everyone has agreed we will return to Ireland just to stay here again.
