This was by far the nicest B&B in our trip across Ireland (to be fair, it was also the most expensive - our one splurge). It was an ideal combination of the warmth and graciousness you would get from a private home with the features and amenities of a nice hotel. The location is perfect - a brief walk into town as well as a great place to start driving the Ring of Kerry (we set out on a Monday at about 9:30 and since we must have been a bit behind the hordes starting from Killarney, we hardly saw any buses). Tom and the rest of the family were delightful, making recommendations not only for the local area but for our next destination, as well as telling us a bit of history about our family name. The breakfast was outstanding - some different choices every day, with everything very high end. It was also the only B&B where we had a full tub instead of a shower stall. Just wonderful.
