This is not a 4 star hotel at all!! 2 star yes NOT 4 star. Totally disappointed. When we arrived she was not welcoming she was surprised we were there. The room was tiny and the shower room I could barley turn around, The Animals in the picture is not how it seems they were locked away not roaming around.... More

Maureen went Above & Beyond when it comes to Irish hospitality. My adolescents would have loved to spend their whole Irish vacation here. My son was rundown & ill upon arrival. Maureen nursed him back to health. First she brought him hot tea & a large comfy red water bottle & layers of blankets to heat his bed. My teen... More

Large rooms (we had a 4 people room for the 2 of us) with lots of space. Great farm with lots of animals: deer, pig, sheep, rabbits, horse, emus. Several breakfast options to choose from. Good advice received for travelling through the Ring of Kerry. Thanks a lot!

I toured Ireland with my wife, 2 daughters and parents for 12 days. Muckross Riding Stables was one our favorite places. We stayed 2 nights. The B&B is situated on several beautiful acres of pasture surrounded by trees (very tranquil). There are horses, sheep, deer, emu and puppies. The puppies were great entertainment for my daughters. My favorite was the... More

The setting of this property is stunning , if your a lover of animals you... More

This bed and breakfast is on a beautiful piece of property and does have a wonderful assortment of animals as well as a playground for children. The room and en-suite bathroom were average. However we could tell that the owners and/or family that ran the B&B were smokers. It wasn't overwhelming but it would hit us every now and then.... More

We are so sorry to hear you were disappointed with your stay. I can only apologise again and explain as I did at the time in relation to the horseriding. My husband looks after the horseriding and was unable to look after you due to illness that week. I am sorry you did not like the coffee but I had... More

I was delighted to have stayed here with my family. We were given a room that was more than comfortable, the family that owns the stables were welcoming and extremely friendly. The accommodations for kids were fantastic and exciting!! We were grateful to see a bunch of new puppies and my son loved it. The horse ride was a terrific... More

I believe that my family and I had a lucky escape that there was no water when we arrived because it meant that we stayed elsewhere. My reason for booking here was the horse riding for the children and pet farm. It looked idyllic on the website which I now believe has not been updated in some time. I booked... More

I can only apologise to you in relation to the no water situation but as I explained on the day it was completely out of my control as the council had turned off the water supply in order to repair a leak in the...

This was a terrible experience; please do not stay here! My fiancé and I are animal lovers and thought this would be an amazing spot. The actual grounds themselves were lovely; however the treatment of the animals boarders animal abuse. The puppies (adorable!) were left outside in the cold to lie in their own feces and urine. A second dog... More
