One of the very best, if not the best, B and B we have ever stayed in. We were greeted by Mary given tea and cake in the lounge and an insight into local attractions. Our room overlooked the back garden and had a wonderful view of the mountains. Room was very spacious as was the ensuite and spotlessly clean. There was a very good choice of quality food at breakfast which Bridget served with a smile and much advice as to how best to view the local sights.
The B and B has some lovely touches such as a communal fridge for beer, wine and snacks with glasses in the lounge for guests to use. It was lovely to come back after an evening meal and have a drink in front of the open fire and meet fellow guests.
If you want to walk the short distance to the local eatery then Mary can supply high visibility vests and a very large flashlight - only good for ladies with large handbags!
Short drive to local attractions such as Torc Waterfall, Muckross House and Killarney town.
