Enjoyed our stay here with all the animals around, sheep, horses, puppies in this beautiful setting. Saw Sika deer out the window at breakfast. Maureen is a sweetheart, very friendly and helpful.

This was the first B&B on our self drive trip and our first B&B ever, when we entered the drive and saw the grounds our breath was taken away. The sheep were grazing in the field (also had no fear of the driveway or cars) the home was beautiful and we weren't disappointed. We were greeted by a young woman who was extremely friendly and made sure we were satisfied, also invited us to stroll the stables and check out the horses. Although we didn't have our children with us, there were several running around the property and in and out of the stables. Too cool. The room was great and our hostess greeted us the next morning with a smile and breakfast. We stayed 2 nights and were very pleased with the location. Don't skip Torc Waterfall!

This was my 1st B&B of my 8 night stay and it did not disappoint. Although I had a bit of a difficult time finding Muckross Stables (because of my GPS), it turned out to be very convienent to many fantastic places. Dingle was a picturesque hour’s Drive, the Ring of Kerry is literally down the street and downtown Killarney was a 10 minute drive. Jarvey’s Restaurant, down the street, was fantastic. Be sure to catch a session at a local pub downtown. The room was very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and the view from the dining room was wonderful. Be sure to take a minute to per the horses and take a picture of the rare Jacob Sheep. I would highly recommend staying here.

From the moment we arrived we were quite disappointed in our stay. The host insisted that we did not have a reservation. After looking at her books she saw that we did have a reservation. A 5 Euro deposit was asked from us for the key which we were not told about until our arrival.
