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.

Two days, and we could have stayed a week. Breda and her husband were so friendly, we felt like family quickly. We wanted a B/B to get to know local folks, and that we did. My wife had a bad cough the first night, Breda made her a hot toddy, and she slept ALL night. We were so pleased. The room with view, the breakfast area with view, the fire in the hearth, the lovely breakfast, and spectacular surroundings, and great hosts, all made the stay perfect. Just get directions before you set out. Well worth the out of the way country drive. Want to go back.
