Great location and comfortable stay! The hosts were friendly and our room was very clean. The horses were beautiful and we wished we had the time to see more of the animals on the property. Thank you for having us!

We enjoyed Mucross Stables as we began our trip. While it was a continental breakfast there were plenty of choices and kept well stocked. Loved the area, brushing the horses and playing with dogs. Great location to access Killarney area.

It was an ok place to lay your head down. It did kind of smell like smoke.

I loved being able to have horses free roaming the property! They would walk right by you as you unloaded your car! Home was very clean and was an overall very pleasant visit.

We arrived after 7, so maybe that is why we weren't greeted by the hosts. We greeted by some very friendly guests who gave us excellent dinner suggestions. When we met the hosts in the morning, they didn't introduce themselves and seemed rushed. The breakfast was disappointing due to selection and packaged baked goods put out were several months expired. The location and room were nice. We selected this BnB for our 7 year old granddaughter to see animals. She did get to see some puppies and bunnies. In the morning, she was in the barn with her mother and they were talking to a man setting up a carriage with a pony. He wasn't very friendly and didn't offer to give her a ride up to the end of the driveway, which would have made her trip. This seems more like an Air BnB (play to stay) and not a traditional BnB (local experience), so I would not recommend it.
