Myself and 2 nieces (6+7 years old) enjoyed a fabulous 2 night stay couple of weeks ago.. The room was lovely and comfortable, with comfy bed (always a plus -helps with a good nights sleep). fabulous breakfast each morning (cooked to order) - the girls loved the stack of pancakes... The B+B has gorgeous grounds - huge in fact, which lends to a very peaceful and quiet environment. The grounds are so big that it is more like something you would find on a 5 star estate. No traffic sounds or noise to disturb your stay.
But probably best of all (for children & big kids at heart) is the selection of animals in the pet farm, which children will just love - especially the cute puppies. There are other animals too- lots of horses (of course with the riding stables), rabbits (also a big hit as they can be picked up if you can catch one!). goats, ducks, pigs, emus and even a wallaby! The weather was glorious too during our visit, which added to the enjoyment.
B+B has a very convenient location just off the Muckross Road - well signposted, if you're driving out from Killarney Town - take the left turn at the Muckross Park Hotel. Approx 5min drive to the Killarney National Park and approx 10mins or so back to Killarney town centre.
Just be advised the B+B does not accept credit cards - not a big deal, but it's helpful to know these things in advance..
Nearly forgot - children's onsite playground also great - includes 2 zipwires, which all the kids seems to love.. free to guests.
Couldn't recommend it more and very nice family running the place (and staff), who were very accommodating when we turned up earlier than expected.. We would definitely return! (-:
