Stayed for two nights while visiting the Ring of Kerry and what a fantastic choice. The area is first class, the rooms are first class, the breakfast is first class and the price is first class. Will definitely be back.

Great little spot, minutes from Killarney and a nice base if you're down that part of the country. Everything was fine in the B&B itself, room was clean, a good size and the breakfast was good. Owners were nice as well. Good handbook in the rooms as well with plenty of information on the surrounding area.

John and Nora made us feel very welcome, with lots of handy info on the locality (and what a stunning location it is in, within a short walk of the Gap of Dunloe). Nice clean room and a very good breakfast. Highly recommended.

My husband and I stayed at the Ferris Wheel for two nights, the standard was first class. We have stayed at some 4 and 5 star hotels that were not as good, for the price paid it was excellent value for money. Everything was exceptional down to the cups and saucers and the knives and forks. I would have no... More

Stayed at the B&B for a couple of days with wife and daughter. The perfect sport to visit Killarney as well as the main surroundings including Gap of Dunloe (two minutes up the road), Carrauntohill (5 minutes up the road) and Killarney (about 10 minutes drive). Location is perfect and very quiet. The hotel rooms and bathroom are spotless and... More

I have stayed at the Ferris Wheel three times. The Owners, John and Nora, are fantastic people. The rooms are clean and well kept. The breakfasts are very good with ample variety. The location can't be beat. It is convenient to The Gap of Dunloe, Kate Kearney's Cottage, downtown Killarney and the ring of Kerry. I look forward to staying... More

We stayed in The Ferris Wheel for two nights in July while we were attending a wedding in The Dunloe. The B&B is ideally located close to The Dunloe if you fancy comfort without the expense of The Dunloe. Our room was a very decent size and modern (not like a typical irish B&B). Rooms and en suite spotlessly clean.... More

Stayed here for a night with wife while attending a wedding at the Dunloe Hotel. The room was very comfortable and clean, quite large for a B&B and a nice clean ensuite facilitated a nice warm shower. No shower curtain though which was unusual. It 1.3km from the Dunloe hotel along a country road. Pretty during the day and dark... More

We loved our stay at the Ferris Wheel B&B ! My twin 13 year old kids and I stayed here for a wonderful four days in June, when we travelled to Ireland to attend my brothers wedding.. We were made to feel so very welcome by the wonderful Ferris family. We had a very spacious and immaculately clean family room... More

Lovely room and expansive traditional breakfast. John is a fountain of knowledge about the area and its history. I also took a ride in his jaunty cart in the Gap. Short, beautiful walk to Kate Kearney's cottage and the entrance to the Gap.
