We stayed at Hillcrest Farmhouse on our first night of hiking the Kerry Way. From my understanding, there are only 2 or 3 available places to stay in Black Valley, so there is not much choice. This house is fine and provides the basic needs. Bed, hot shower, breakfast. The common room is not very welcoming. Also, it seems you... More

We stayed here during our walk along the Kerry Way. Hillcrest Farmhouse is conveniently located, right off the Kerry Way. As others have noted, the accommodations in this area are very limited ... and I couldn't help but feel the owners took advantage of that fact when setting their prices. Mary, our host, was very welcoming and offered us tea... More

We stopped here while walking the Kerry Way. Our hosts were quiet and fairly private. We ate dinner there as there is no where else in the area to get a meal. Breakfast was also just okay. Our stay was average but I'm not sure there are other options along the path.

We stayed at this place for one night at the beginning of our tour and didnt think about the price too much then. Our room was tiny, and we got a twin even though we travelled as a couple. However, in retrospect, after having stayed at several more b&bs and hotels directly afterwards we have to conclude that the owners... More

WOW! I spent two nights here and I will definitely return on my next visit. Gracious hosts, excellent food, and great additional amenities you do not typically find at most B&B's. Evening meals were offered, making for a relaxing evening. The hosts were very helpful in offering suggestions when I indicated where I was heading. The drive to the location... More

This is a very remote location, but is located just 200 meters off of the Kerry Way. Our hosts were polite but not really outgoing, which is unlike so many B&Bs in Ireland. Our room was small and simple, but the beds were comfortable and the water hot. There is no place to eat in the vicinity of the B&B,... More

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
