What a beautiful place! John & Nora welcomed us so warmly and the breakfasts were delicious! We stayed for 3 nights and would not change a thing. John helped direct us in some of our activities and was spot on. Highly recommend a stay here if it fits into your plans!

We stayed at 5 places during our 11 day stay in Ireland. The Ferris Wheel was in the best locations for seeing a beautiful view. It is very close to Dunloe Gap. John and Nora make a wonderful breakfast and have a lovely B&B. The pub nearby was a lot of fun to visit. If you get there early enough (we tended not to) they often have live music.

Nora and John were great hosts. Nora provided great tips on day trips and things to do in the area. She helped us print out some tickets for entry to a venue. John arranged for a jaunting cart tour of the Dunloe Gap for our party of six. He gladly shared his insights of the area and of Ireland - all very informative. He recommended eating one night at Kate's Cottage; we had a fantastic meal and were entertained by great live music. The B&B is located in an ideal area for day trips of the area and in a beautiful setting. The breakfasts were great with many choices. We will stay there again when we return to Killarney.

John and Nora were just lovely hosts - even to helping my husband change a damaged tire after our drive through the Gap. Everything is very clean and well kept! The breakfast is superb!!! Made to order and served in a beautiful well-appointed dining room every morning until 10. They gave great advice about the local area too! It's a beautiful place to stay in a beautiful setting! I wish they took credit cards for payment. Coming from the states it is hard to carry enough cash safely. I also wish there was a common room where guests could relax and mingle in the evenings. Otherwise - just a brilliant stay. Thanks so much!!!!
