We really liked this property because it had tons of old world charm and didn't feel like a generic 5 star Marriott-type property. The grounds are spacious with beautiful landscaping and a park that must go on for miles. The hiking was spectacular. We even saw people swimming in the sea (we are too used to swimming in Goa to do that...) The meals were quite good, in fact we only ate there. I enjoyed the burgers. Breakfast was also extensive, a bit crowded, but waiters were always attentive and ready to help. Reception was friendly and efficient. The room was fairly large, very modern and nicely furnished, comfortable bed, and peaceful park view. I liked the creaky stairs and just the feel of being in a heritage, historic property that seemed a bit quirky in a good way. I also liked the fact that the majority of guests were Irish just wanting to have a nice vacation, laid-back and enjoying themselves. That is to say, it didn't feel like a tourist trap for foreigners. Having read some negative reviews we were not entirely sure, but having stayed here I can confidently say that it would be difficult to criticize much about this property. Definitely a great base not only for the Kerry Ring but also Ilnacullin Gardens on Garinish Island on the gorgeous and underrated Beara Peninsula.
