Hands down the best B&B we stayed on our trip! We had a little trouble finding it, but we plugged Muckross House into the GPS then watched for the Friars Glen sign on the main road. From the minute we arrived Mary made us feel like a house guest, with a map and a flashlight to find dinner. She made us a fire to read by and checked in later to make sure we needed anything. The towels were big, and the bathroom was nice, with a bathtub and room to move. We loved seeing the two dogs in the morning and the view of the park from the window was breathtaking. We wanted to stay an extra night, but couldn't due to our next B&B having our cc number.
Breakfast in the morning was impressive, we were greeted by several types of juice, brown bread, corn muffins, yogurt, fruit, cereal and then were able to order from the menu. The banana fritters were so good and my husband loved his irish breakfast.
If you are up for hiking the location can't be beat, and the service is 5 star. I can't wait to go back to Ireland and stay at Friars Glen again!
