It feels like this place is built around around a fireplace in are cozy little bar. When we arrived here, we were very warmly welcomed by the host. We were walking the Kerry way and even though it is not directly on track, it's totally worth staying here - there is a shortcut coming back to the Kerry way at Blackstone bridge. After a long day of walking we could really relax here. After having a shower the Guiness at the fireplace was like something that came directly from heaven. The food was by far the best we had in Ireland during our trip. Hospitality is the key of this place. The only suggestion for improvement would be the room temperature - could be a little warmer.
