We spent one night in this charming hotel in the middle of the Ring of Kerry. I wish we had more time to explore and stay longer! The hotel is an old building, but it is well maintained, clean and extremely comfortable. My husband and I arrived after 8:30pm, hungry and cold, and our hostess was kind enough to make us a delicious soup and one of the best goat-cheese salads I've ever tasted. This was served up in the wood-panelled bar infront of a roaring fire. Our host kept us from being thirsty with drinks from the well-stocked bar. The bedroom was extremely comfortable, clean and warm. The breakfast was first-class with a full range of cereals, hot cakes, fruit etc., and a hearty cooked breakfast. The area is renowned for fishing and hiking, as well as the stunning scenery. I would love to return for a longer stay.
