Had the pleasure of staying at this little gem early this month during a 10 day excursion with my best friend. We had a bit of trouble locating it thanks to a weird GPS unit, but easily found it after asking directions. It is located right at the Gap of Dunloe, so it is about a 15 minute drive outside...

We waited till dark to attempt to find this gem and had some problems, but a quick phone call from the locals and Nora drove into town to meet us and lead us back. Her and her husband John were so congenial and down to earth. Breakfast was amazing (thanks John!) The next morning John took us on a carriage... More

Don’t think this excellent b&b is in Killarney: you have to travel some ten kilometers along the Ring of Kerry way and then to turn to the second left you find to the Gapo of Dunloe and travel again some three kilometers along a narrow road before entering the garden. Just then you are in the middle of the country,... More

The Ferris Wheel is located in the shadow of some of Ireland's highest mountains, right at the beginning of the Gap of Dunloe. Note that currently Google maps location for the B&B is incorrect.The correct location is about 1 km north of the indicated location. John and Nora Ferris are warm, friendly, witty hosts. Both went out of their way... More

At first, we were disappointed by the location, being farther from Killarney than we anticipated. But we soon realized that the B&B was just down the road from the Gap of Dunloe, where we spent a day hiking and enjoying the bar/restaurant at the beginning of the trail. Also, the location was very quiet and relaxing, but close enough to... More

pros - location in the countryside away from the tourist crowds in Killarney - modern and clean - good breakfast - nice people cons - can hear people in their rooms as you walk past - had to wait at breakfast time as not enough seating, perhaps if they are full they should organise different sitting times like 7-830 and...

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
