I can highly recommend the Muckross Riding Staples! Our room was very clean and spacious. The linen were new and very comfy. The continental breakfast and the Irish breakfast was great! If you like to explore the Killarney National Park or the different Rings, you should chose this B&B. Our room was on the ground floor - if I had to point out a small negative thing, it would be our neighbours upstairs. I think they made a run in heavy walking boots around their bad for several just have to know that you can hear your neighbours when they are not exhausted from hiking or exploring :-)

We had a nice stay at Muckross Stables. The room was comfortable, the Irish breakfast was delicious, and we loved watching the horses. Maureen was very welcoming along with her daughter. We enjoyed a quiet evening sipping wine and watching the horses. We also loved the puppies and made a few trips to the barn to say hi to them. Would highly recommend.

Hello Maureen, This was our first B&B we stayed at in Ireland and we were very satisfied. As a host you were very hospitable and the Irish Breakfast was very good. You have a beautiful home and the horses were such a delight to see and watch. Thank you for sharing your home with us, wishing you and your family much happiness and success. And yes, I would recommend your B&B to others traveling to Ireland.
