The location is definitely rural and we love that. Next to a historic bridge and waterfront vista were relaxing and just what we needed after driving on the left side of the road for so long. Dogs on property were sweet and made us miss our own husky. Breakfast was exceptional -- the white pudding was moist and delicious. We also had coffee in our room and everyone was so sweet. If you go, know you can buy a bottle of wine there to relax too. We opted for dinner at the coast -- Breda had great recommendations. You'll love staying here.

We stayed three nights at Blackstones House. It's a real paradise on earth. I wish I could live there forever! The room was big with the most enchanting view. The beds are very comforable Breda and Pádraigh are very friendly and the full Irish breakfast was delicious. We are certainly planning to come back next year.

We had a wonderful 2 night stay at Blackstones House. Getting there can be a bit tricky, but we enjoyed driving the back roads. Blackstones House is situated in an idyllic setting. Breda was a wonderful host and gave us great advice on where to go on the Ring of Kerry. Breakfast was wonderful and the rooms comfortable. We would stay there again.

What a magical place. We were so pleased with home and the incredible scenery all around it. The quiet interspersed with sweet birds sounds was dreamy. Breda was a fantastic host and so accomodating. Although we had difficulty finding Blackstone, it was well worth it, Thanks again Breda.
