The drive to Hillcrest Farmhouse was pretty adventurous and at times overwhelming but very beautiful. Driving out was a lot easier. It's an out of the way B & B but well worth it. It is a lovely place great room, lovely and gracious hosts, great places to hike or take a walk. The breakfast was perfect.

We had a great stay here. Beautiful location and setting, the drive to this location and the views through the park the next day were a highlight for us. Great breakfast.

Very remote location. Ideal for hikers, terrifying drive for someone just getting used to narrow roads and wrong side of the road. Nice hosts and good breakfast. Rooms small.

The drive up seemed a lot more treacherous than the drive out through the gap of dunlo. Anyway, the scenery and views along the way were breathtaking!! I'm so glad we made the trip. The farmhouse was nice, our room was upstairs and probably the smallest room we had in our 2 week of staying at b&b's. The breakfast was good. Mary was very accommodating. Worth the drive.

We had a wonderful stay here. Just to warn you, the drive out to this place is especially scary if you are used to driving on the opposite side of the road. The hosts were very sweet and changed their breakfast plans as much as possible for us when we had to leave early. Would absolutely stay again. About a 25 minute drive from ladies view which has an awesome restaurant with lookout over Killarney National Park. We drove to Killarney for dinner and the drive was not bad at all either. Great location and very fun experience.
