We stayed 10 days at the Salmon Leap Farm. It is the perfect place for visiting the south-west of Ireland. The room was spacious with a beautiful view and good comfortable beds, the shower dome was blissful after a long day of exploring. You could choose what you wanted for breakfast the next day and Sean always had good tips... More

This superb B&B in an old, elegantly restored farmhouse set in the stunning Kerry countryside, feels more like a boutique hotel. The owner, Sean, and his family have been running it since 1963 and it tells. The location is perfect for hill walkers like us who aren't bothered about having a pub and/or restaurant within walking distance (such as you... More

When we were shown to our room at this B&B, I literally could not believe how nice it was--roomy, comfortable beds, nice shower... I didn't want to leave. It was nice to have the homey feel of a bed and breakfast here, combined with some of the privacy a more hotel-like setting gives you, as the B&B is larger with... More

Beautiful setting about 10 minutes drive outside Killarney. Mountains to the front and lush farmland to the rear. Clean, comfortable, welcoming. Highly recommended. Positives: Close to Killarney but in a lovely countryside setting. Great communal areas (sitting and dining rooms) and nice bedrooms with en-suite shower rooms to a good standard. Sean, our host, was very friendly and ensured we... More

Breakfast was incredible and the host was very friendly and helpful and even provided us with coffee and biscuits in the guest room any time we asked.... More

We stayed at this B&B. They were wonderful. They were very kind and let us check in early. The room was the best we stayed in while in Ireland. Very clean and nice. Will stay again when we travel to Ireland.

We stayed here for three nights and it was the best B&B on our trip! Sean was so friendly and helpful, we got tea/coffee upon arrival. Be sure to have him give you a tour of the archaeological site on his property, it was very interesting. Beds were clean and comfy, and bathrooms were large! Never thought i would comment... More
