This was our 1st B&B while visiting Ireland and the hospitality was outstanding. We were greeted by Breda's son who was very informative and very mature for his age. As I titled this review - the place was quaint - having an old-fashioned attractiveness and oddly picturesque. There were other guests staying there and we had a very enjoyable time... More

Staying with some friends for a night after doing the Ring of Kerry and leaving the next day for Dublin. Everything was absolutely perfect, we couldn't have asked for more. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. The family room was spacious enough for 4 adults and everything was perfectly tidy and clean. Breakfast was great as well! The location... More

We were greeted by Breda's daughter, who was very professional and, she knew what she was doing. If she wants, I think Mom and Dad would be able to hand over the business quite easily to thier well trained children! Helpful advise for choosing a restaurant in Macroom and, what not to miss on our travels to our next stop,... More

We recently stayed here on our way from Kerry and were quite disappointed with the accommodation. The hostess was pleasant and helpful, however, the bedroom itself seemed old, and not of a modern standard. It had a small shower, and TV and the mattress wasn't comfortable. The food was good, and breakfast tasty. Overall ok, but we will not return.

Fountain House was a place we stayed at in 2010 to enjoy the local fishing. In 2016 we will be returning for the 7th year on the trot. The hospitality is second to nothing you will ever experience anywhere in Europe. Breda and Pat are hosts who cannot do enough to accommodate, and the friendliness of their family adds to... More
