A great B & B experience. John keeps a clean home and is an excellent host. Would put on the recommended list.

John and Nora were fantastic hosts! They provided us with a wealth of information for the surrounding area, and provided a fantastic breakfast. The room was great, very comfortable and had a gorgeous view. Kate Kearney's cottage just a short drive or walk was perhaps some of the best food we ate while in Ireland, and the Gap of Dunloe is a definite must see while visiting.

LOVED our stay at the Ferris Wheel. The accommodations were perfect - rooms were spacious, bed was very comfortable. John and Nora were wonderful hosts. Breakfast was delicious each morning. We stayed for 3 nights and would have loved to stay longer. Views from the house were amazing. Perfect location - you can easily walk to the entrance to the Gap of Dunloe. 10-15 minutes drive to town. Perfect bar/ restaurant (Kate's Kearney Cottage) right around the corner - good food and entertainment. Highly recommend staying at the Ferris Wheel.

John and Nora were gracious hosts and they have a beautiful home. The house is situated near the Gap of Dunlop which is beautiful and Kate’s Kitchen up the road is a delight.The breakfast was outstanding with many choices. The only slight inconvenience was the shower area.

We enjoyed our stay at the Ferris Wheel. Our room was beautiful with a view of the mountain behind the house. The location is perfect. We walked down to Kate Kearney's cottage for dinner. What a great place for traditional Irish food and music. John took us for a ride through the Gap on his jaunting cart with his horse Jammie Boy leading the way. Breakfast was delicious. They made the best bread with raisins. I wish I'd asked for the recipe. We definitely would stay again if we have the chance.
