We spent 3 nights here in mid-May and found this to be an excellent location for hiking and climbing in this beautiful area. The draw was Carrantuohil, the Irish high point. We climbed from the west side, parking for which is about 20 minutes from this B&B at Hydro Road. The lodging was very clean and all furnishings in excellent condition. Peggy was helpful with information about walking the Gap of Dunloe and nearby eating possibilities. She produced a hearty "fry" each morning of the traditional Irish breakfast. A bonus were the delicious home-made scones she serves! It was cool during our stay so the electric blankets got the beds warm before bedtime. The beds were firm and comfortable, with extra blankets in the wardrobe. Water pressure was great with plenty of hot water and towels of various sizes. Peggy also provided a sack lunch for our hikes which was handy as the Lidl store is near Killarney, maybe 10 Km away. Back in the room and exhausted it was nice to have a reasonably sized flat-panel TV with several channels available. The wifi was handy for checking the weather forecast and sending photos home. The grounds are perfectly manicured and a pleasure to view from the breakfast room. A very pleasant stay.
