On arrival we were met by the owner who was brief to say the least. Our room was so close to others and without any sound-proofing it was impossible not to hear very clearly all conversations and other noises from the next rooms. There was an uneven floor in the upstairs passageway which could have been dangerous. There was no... More

The facilities are beautiful and close to good food and pubs. Since it is large and rooms are close, more like a hotel, we were able to hear the rooms next to us and also got a complaint about being able to hear us walking in our room from the people below us. We also had to use our friends... More

Good availability because there are lots of rooms (around 14). Large breakfast with different options to choose including e.g. salmon. Unfortunately our room was not properly cleaned up and there was a very disturbing noise because of the heating pump (ear plugs needed). Also we had the impression that there must have been fungizide in the room (black dots behind... More

This was our families first experience with a Bed and Breakfast hotel. I was always under the impression that Bed and Breakfasts were for couples only. We had our son with us. The owners were very friendly. Our room was adorable and had a homey feeling. The next morning when we got up, we headed for the dining area. They... More

This old farmhouse was an absolute treasure. Our family of 4, 2 adults + 2 teens stayed in the family room at the end of the hall and it was perfect. Beds were fantastic, lots of space, bathroom was big and bright. Lovely. Breakfasts were so delicious. Best scones I had in all of Ireland. The young calfs, baby kittens... More

We stayed here for one night in between our trip around the Ring of Kerry and Dingle. We arrived late and the key was waiting for us upon arrival. A very nice woman checked on us shortly after to make sure we had everything we needed. The place was well decorated, clean, and inviting. The room was very large. It... More

Just returned from Ireland. Only had one night at the farm, but it was warm and welcoming.We arrived late (11:30 pm) and Mrs. Murphy was waiting up for us. Made sure the kettle had water for a late night cup of tea. Breakfast in the morning was yummy, especially the scones. I could have eaten the entire plate of them.... More

Upon arrival you will be greeted by Mrs. Murphy, a lovely lady who has run the bnb for the better part of 60 years. She will also be the one cooking your breakfast (we asked other members of the Murphy house, she says she loves it and would not have it any other way! Of course, there are many daughters,... More

It was a great surprise to turn down the main road and find Murphy's Farmhouse. The rooms were very comfortable (small bathroom but fine!) - with lovely views of the fields, great linens, all things good. The breakfast was delicious. The family was very nice. It was just fabulous. And a very good value. Loved it!

I visited with my partner and parents. We had a large room, which was very nice with a single and double bed and a room with a larger washroom with a double bed. All of us slept well. Breakfast was okay but there was a tour group mini-van staying too (so it felt less intimate than the other b&bs) and... More
