Lovely setting friendly welcome. Very clean and great value. Home made scones with breakfast and orthopaedic mattress on bed so had a great sleep. All three of us enjoyed the experience and all rooms were well put together. A working farm so a lovely experience.
The BNB is ideally situated between Kenmare and Glengariff, surrounded by green fields & mountains. It’s a working farm with hens, sheep & cows around. Sheila is very committed and extremely helpful. She has great advice about things to do in the area. The BnB itself is fine. The family room was spacious with en-suite bath. The interior is dated but everything is very clean. The rooms could do with some fresh and brighter paint as well as a bit of modern furniture.
We stayed here for 1 night during our travels in Ireland and found it to be comfortable and quiet, but we wouldn't have wanted to stay any longer. The B&B is in a great location with respect to exploring Kenmare and the surrounding areas. Although it sits on a busy road the traffic noise wasn't an issue whatsoever for us as our room was on the backside of the house, away from the road. Sheila the hostess was welcoming, very friendly, pleasant and lovely to talk with. Our room was spacious, comfortable, and fully functional but the furnishings were quite tired and dated. Breakfast was tasty and plentiful. The unacceptable issue we had with this B&B was in relation to the bath towels provided.....they smelled so badly of sheep manure that it was repulsive to both of us and we couldn't use them.....and consequently it made us question the overall cleanliness of the B&B as a whole.…
I loved staying at the White Heather Farm. Sheila is amazing. She is very kind and hard-working. I enjoyed her accommodations and breakfast every morning. She was very helpful. My room was very comfortable and had everything I needed. Her property is gorgeous and allowed me to drive to the ring of Kerry and hike in Killkenny National Park. Will definitely be visiting again.
If you are looking for a very rustic place to stay you will enjoy White Heather Farm. However for the price we paid we have enjoyed significantly more comfortable accommodations. It is important to recognize that this is a true working farm. We enjoyed meeting our proprietress Sheila and her adorable grandson Ronan who showed us the lambs and even walked us up the farm road so we could see a one day old calf. We did have a couple of items that are worth a mention. There were some spiderwebs with spiders in the corners of the bathroom and behind one of the wall radiators, along with some little bugs stuck to the shower walls. There did not appear to be any heat overnight. The towels were definitely line dried so were quite stiff and uncomfortable but also being dried out of doors on a farm, they carried a strong odor of farm animals & agriculture. Lastly, husband was of the opinion the morning coffee was burnt. …
We loved staying at the White Heather Farm B&B. the location was perfect for us: close to both the Beara Peninsula and the Ring of Kerry. Sheila was a perfect hostess, extremely friendly, helpful and accommodating. Although we arrived quite late, she waited up for us and served us tea, coffee and cookies. The full Irish breakfast was also delicious. 9 1/2 out of 10!
We have been in this B&b for one night . Host is lovely and it is in a very quiet place . Breakfast good , enough , served with fresh products served . I don't give the four star as it is necessary, for me, to give it a "refresh" , more cleaness is necessary ,
White Heather B&B was very nice. Sheila accommodated for our service dog, even though she didn't know we were bringing a dog. Make sure to call ahead about a dig because it us listed as a dig friendly place. Delicious breakfast, quiet en suite rooms, comfortable beds and CLEAN!!. Not like our Airbnb experiences.
Where to start? As a B&B, White Heather Farm is special -- clean and cozy rooms, a nice fire in the sitting room in the evening, a delicious cooked- to-order breakfast each morning -- I recommend the cheese omelette, but there are lots of other choices. But there's more -- the location is absolutely stunning, quite convenient to Kenmare but very quiet and peaceful. If you have children, they would love to see the cows and sheep and chickens. The best thing about White Heather Farm, though, is Sheila. She is a very thoughtful and generous host, not just with special breakfasts and recommendations for local attractions, but with her time. She always had time for a bit of a chat (even I nGaeilge!) and made us feel truly welcome. In our case, Sheila even figured out some of our family's genealogy! We knew that our grandmother had grown up on a nearby farm, and, as it turned out, Sheila and her husband had just bought that property seven or eight months ago, and Sheila brought us to the farmhouse, uninhabited since the last of my grandmother's nephews died 20-some years ago. She also shared stories of those nephews we had never met. (I wish I had met Paddy when he found that pot of gold!) Our stay at White Heather Farm was the highlight of our Irish vacation! Now we have to return with the rest of the family! Thanks for your generosity and good humor, Sheila!…
This BnB is outside the city of Kenmare and if you arrive by car it is better to introduce GPS coordinates (N51.859262, W9.543294). Welcome by Sheila is excellent and unusual (it is the only BnB which offered a drink in his lounge when we arrived). The room is nice and clean. Very good irish beakfast to start a good day.
