Location is amazing. We however had to ask to a bar where is that place because the information and adress were not right. The color of the outdoor building is not the same too. Updating the pictures would help ;) You have to walk the gap of Dunloe from that place - amazing ! Bathroom are very humis and the ventilation is deficient. We used a portable heating fixture to dry it up - window open. Breakfast and people were superbe. Was un fun stay.

Located near the Gap of Dunloe, the Ferris Wheel is a pleasant and clean B & B. The rooms are spacious. The view is spectacular looking out at Kilarney National Park. A nearby restaurant and 'sweet shop' are outstanding and a short drive brings other Killarney sights and eateries into play. Nora and John were very friendly and greatly assisted us to get to visit the highlights of the area - Ring of Kerry, Dingle Peninsula, Beara Pninsula, and Kenmare. John arranged a Jaunting Cart ride up the Gap of Dunloe.

The views from The Ferris Wheel are absolutely BREATHTAKING!. It is right down the road from a great local pub, which was extremely convenient. It's located right in the Gap of Dunloe; we only drove about 2 minutes from the B&B to get to the scenic drive of the Gap. The bedroom and bathroom were a nice size.

This was a lovely, well appointed home. The location was beautiful and there where so many wonderful places to visit close by. We walked to the Gap of Dunmore from the B&B and enjoyed meeting several jaunting ponies on our way! John was a knowledgable and friendly host!
