We were walking the KerryRing trail and stayed at this B&B in Black Valley. The owners were very hospitable, the room was very comfortable. It was close to the trail and probably the nicest place to stay in the area. We were also able to order a packed lunch for the next day.

My boyfriend and I used Hillcrest as the last (Black Valley) stopover hiking the Kerry Way. Comfortable room, very good shower, nice and peaceful. Breakfast was also good. So why three stars? At €72 for a double it was the most expensive room we booked on our hike - most were €60 - and there was no obvious premium in... More

We walked from Killarney to here on our first day of the Kerry way. We got there just on time before the rain and settled into our cosy room. My partner was delighted with her chicken meal and I enjoyed the pork. it a lovely location and the owners Mary and Robert are very helpful.

Robert and Mary seemed tired. They said they've been doing this for 30-something years and didn't have the warm, friendly personalities of some of the others who hosted us in their B&Bs (but they were, by no means, rude; just to the point). The room was spacious and comfortable. Since we hiked from town to town, we had no form... More

Hillcrest is a lovely farmhouse b&b in the middle of nowhere. I see people have commented on the location, I love the fact that it is in the wilderness. I have to say that the website does state that its location is in the heart of the lakes and mountains and it even provides a map of its location, so... More

Received a very warm and welcome stay after a great days walking. Rooms were very comfortable and we had a delicious evening meal. We also had a great breakfast the following morning. It's a unique destination in a beautiful and peaceful location. Thank you.

Stayed here for two nights. Really welcoming and warm atmosphere. Nice rooms and excellent food. The surronding area is amonst the most scenic we have ever visited. Great base for walking excursions and sight seeing.. Highly reccomend a visit and we look forward to returning some day.

Hillcrest Farmhouse really is in the middle of nowhere, about 7km down a hill track. We thought we had missed it in the mist but did eventually find it. Robert & Mary Tangney were welcoming and offered us an evening meal. Considering the distance back out to anywhere this was most welcome. We had a nice 3 course meal and... More
