Entering, you feel a time warp to the 80s with the décor. The house/rooms are spotlessly clean. This felt like staying over with an older country relative we've never met before, where we felt the uncomfortable need to be on our very best behavior whenever we were on the premises. Proprietor Irma would frequently pop out of the woodwork, ready to check in to see how we were doing, and share suggestions for dining and lodging options for our jaunts. ROOM: Beds were clean and comfy. Equipped with reading material and extra wool blankets. HINT: if you're staying in one of the front rooms on the first floor, you need to keep the shades down - otherwise everyone can see right in. Appreciated the free WIFI (password behind the room door, along with the breakfast menu options). BATHROOM: Simple but fully equipped with toiletries, but we had brought our own. The bathroom in the twin room consists of a toilet and a shower, with the sink located in the room itself. Shower appears to be one of those instant hot water deals - not very hot and not much pressure. GETTING THERE. Conveniently located right off the highway ("new road"). Google Maps and GPS were confused because of the construction of the new road but both ways got us there fine. Parking for guests is in the back, behind the house. Watch out for the wild bunnies - fun to watch them on the front lawn in the morning. VERDICT: While old-fashioned BnBs very much not my thing, it was a warm bed in a clean room - all we needed, really - and the price was right for a last-minute, conveniently located, short term stay.…
We had a comfortable stay here. You need a car if you want to go out in the evening as it is a bit out in the sticks. The hostess was very friendly and offered great advice about where to go. Clean and tidy and rooms cleaned and sheets changed everyday.
Out of 15 B&B stays in Ireland, this is the only one that was not excellent in all regards. She made us feel very uncomfortable when we were trying to set a time for breakfast. We mistakenly entered an off limits room and the man (husband?) was very rude and put out as he directed us to our room. We decided to skip breakfast and just leave as soon as we could. The only reason I don't rate this a one star is because she agreed to reduce the cost to compensate for no breakfast.
This B&B is convenient for a ring of Kerry or Dingle visit. The place is well kept and super quiet at night. The grounds are beautiful and well manicured. The breakfast is fine dining! Our host was charming and helpful. Great value here.
We stayed for 3 nights May 13th-16th in the family room upstairs. Family of 4. We did not opt for the breakfast so i cannot speak for that. We did enjoy the dining area and very large, comfortable living area. Very well decorated and want to use the term adult, as in a place an adult would be comfortable just sitting and talking and unwinding from the day. Ms Irma was a wonderful host, very helpful and knowledgeable in giving us advice. the highlight of our trip was the blackwater valley and gap of Dunlow drive and we would never have made that without her advice. (Thank you) The room and beds were comfortable. The selection of tea's and coffee that was available for guest use was very good. Each morning i enjoyed just sitting in the dining area watching the bird feeder outside. This hotel is located between Milltown and Killorglin (2 miles in either direction with food and gas) VERY conveinent to both Ring of Kerry and Dingle. My only complaint is that we spent too much time out on the road and not enough sitting and relaxing in this wonderful house with Ms Irma. (or if i would have known i would have brought my Golf Clubs and played a round with her!)…
Ms Irma was Great... Suggestions on day trips were nice.. Dunloe gap a MUST see. Beds very comfortable. Beautiful home . Ring of kerry is beautiful.. Its a full day..Dingle and beehives were a fun day.
My sister and I stayed for 4 nights and we adored that place! The surrondings are beautiful and there are even wild rabbits in the garden outside the BnB. Our hosts were very kind and helped us planning our days, giving advice for nice pubs or how to avoid crowded parkings. The room was very clean and calm and the breakfast was delicious with multiple options to choose. A typical Irish BnB experience that you shouldn't miss!
1 night stay in this bed and and breakfast. Perfectly located to discover either Dingle Peninsula or Ring of Kerry. Irma is a very welcoming host providing you usefull informations about restaurants , pubs and activities. Rooms nicely decorated and great comfort for a good price.
The rooms are okay but not special. We had a twin which was okay but very small. There are larger rooms which you should prefer. The shower in our room was not optimal. Hardly waterpressure and not a good watertemperature. The house has a very spacious living room where you can sit in the evening. The lady of the house is a walking tourist guide. She knows all the hotspots and gives you very practical infomation. Listening to her benefits you.
During our Ireland-trip in may (2017) we stayed for 2 nights in Fern Rock B&B. Our room was convenient, it was plenty large enough and the beds where very good. Also the large livingroom is available for the guests. Breakfast was good and Irma is very kind and gives serviceable advice for making a daytrip. So will we never forget our carride through the Black Valley. Thank you Irma for this great experience.
