I loved everything about our stay. Irma is an amazing host, with an eye for detail, who makes you feel very welcome. The rooms are stylish & comfortable and the breakfast the next morning was absolutely delicious with lots of interesting & well cooked choice. It's got a lovely laid back vibe whilst maintaining the highest of standards. I would go back tomorrow! Highly recommended.

This is a gorgeous location - the two host are so welcoming and homely - and not forgetting the well mannered Ms Pickles also! Our room was a home from home with beautiful quirky and modern decor, cakes/cooking and buts left in our room everyday, and the breakfast a beautiful selection of small pastries, granola pot and a choice of cooked brekkie! Couldn't fault this accomodation at all would definitely stay here agin

We recently stayed for 4 nights in the Happy Pig and it was excellent. Wonderful location, fabulous host and the breakfasts were the best. Coffee on arrival was much appreciated after our long drive and gorgeous little treats in our beautifully decorated room when we arrived back in the afternoon. Ideal location for anyone wanting to explore Kerry and just a few minutes walk into town. Highly recommended. Moya, Ireland.
