Bridget was most welcoming to my wife and I and looked after us really well. The house is in a beautiful location with mountain views both front and back. Our room was extremely comfortable and clean with a large bright shower room/toilet. We enjoyed a great breakfast with a gorgeous view of the MacGillycuddy's Reeks and Carrauntoohil. This is the...

Bridgette welcomed us at the door, showed us to our room and offered us tea/coffee. Room was great, spotless. The house itself is immaculate. Breakfasts were the best we had in our 10 day trip to Ireland. Highly recommend this BnB which has gorgeous views to the Macgillycuddy's Reeks range.

THE BEST B&B on our entire Kerry walking trip. Everything was very clean and comfortable, breakfast was excellent, and Bridget was an excellent hostess. The bathroom was awesome; I even took a very nice bath after our long walk. Unbelivable value, and I hope to go back.

We had a wonderful stay here. The views are incredible and Bridget couldn't have been more welcoming. On arrival we were offered tea and coffee and a selection of cakes. The room was immaculate and the breakfast was one of the best of our trip around Ireland. There is a pub a short walk from the hotel too.

Breakfasts are fantastic and we had the use of a lovely sitting room and of the dining room (complete with offers of tea and cake) at all hours of the day..Bridget our... More

I agree with all the other reviews, this B&B is without doubt the nicest and best B&B in the Country. I stayed here after leaving a not so nice B&B in Kilarney after taking part in the Ring of Kerry cycle. This B&B was so nice, I would go back just to stay there. Really comfortable beds, spacious rooms, ensuite,... More

Can't fault lots of things you look for in accommodation and I gave it an excellent rating because it has a comfortable bed/impeccably clean and tidy bedroom and bathroom/quick wifi and great choice at breakfast time. If you're really picky it does lack atmosphere and charm other B and B have but the basics of what you need in an... More

You won't find better than Bridget for a warm welcome. Tea, cakes and biscuits on arrival. Room was spacious, clean and perfect for our needs. Anything you wanted for breakfast. Fantastic choice. The porridge was the best I've ever had, away from home! Bridget couldn't have been more helpful or accommodating.

First, this is a great place to start the Ring of Kerry. You are below the hustle and bustle of Killarney and you can beat the tour buses to the Ring of Kerry. It is just off the main road for the Ring of Kerry and the owner Bridgette was so lovely and delightful. Truly accommodating. And she responded immediately... More
