The Purple Heather
Ranked #3 of 5 Beaufort B&B and Inns
Reviewed 18 May 2013

Nice B&B, clean and comfortable. The room was not very large, but nonetheless, all the essentials were there. The mattress could stand a renewal though. The host was welcoming and helpful. Very good breakfast. Good value for money.

Charming hosts, clean rooms, and good breakfast. Would highly recommend this location to anyone traveling with a car around the ring of Kerry or who will be exploring Gap of Dunloe.

Tom and Nora were very hospitable, helpful, and recommended Kate Kerney's for dinner which was wonderful. There were 2 of us traveling(ladies) and they made us feel welcomed, The rooms were small with 2 twin beds. The linens were wonderful and room beautifully decorated. The room served is purpose for us. Would stay here again. Great location, close to gap of dunloe.

My GPS in Ireland sucked so it was a bit tough to find the place, but it was an adorable little house and the host was very nice. The room was a bit small, but it was clean and served our purpose. My friend and I had a delicious breakfast the next morning and were on our way with a recommendation to drive the Ring of Kerry which was a fabulous way to get to our next destination.

We loved the purple heather. Very very gracious hosts. the location was perfect. We hiked the Gap of Dunloe, and we were about an hour drive to Skellig. Our hosts dried out clothes, without even asking. Full and very good Irish Breakfast. All in all a flawless setting and good experience.

We stayed at this bed and breakfast during a very cold 2 nights in Killarney, with an outside temperature of 30 - 40 degrees. They turned off their heat while we were there and just had a light blanket on the bed. We were freezing! The shower in our room was so tiny that if you dropped the soap, you had to step out of the shower to retrieve it. But who could even shower! When you got out of the shower it was 40 degrees in the house. The breakfast was awful and very spartan. STAY AWAY! It was the worst bed and breakfast we've ever stayed in.
