this great farm house is right next free roaming cows, sheep, calves, chickens and even one donkey. we drove by and saw the cows and the B&B sign and decided to check if they had a room for us. even though we arrived unannounced and during the evening they treated us with tea and great freshly baked scones at the balcony overlooking the pasture. the room was not the cleanest we have been to but certainly acceptable. breakfast was made to our request (one vegetarian) with everything you normally get at an Irish B&B only this was made with the produce as fresh as can be (the cows were milked that morning, same for eggs) and was possibly the best we had in our vacation. our host was incredibly nice and made sure to ask for our plans for that day and give us some tips, some of which were highly valuable like opting for the ferry and save us quite a bit of driving towards dingle.

My husband and I recently (August 2013) toured the Republic of Ireland for two weeks. One week with a tour and the other week on our own. We booked several types of places to stay to try to get a taste of several things while we were there. We stayed one night at a regular B & B, two nights at a castle hotel, two nights in Temple Bar, one night at a resort hotel and two nights at this "farmhouse" B & B. At first I was disappointed with this "farmhouse" B & B because I thought it was going to be someplace that would be inviting to participate with the farming (mildly) like maybe feeding some animals, petting some sheep, etc.... Being an animal lover but not having the access to these types of animals I thought this would be that type of experience. It wasn't but upon our return I looked back at the website and it had no mention of this so apparently it was just something I had in my head. I guess a farmhouse B & B in Ireland is just as it said on the website (which I guess it was just me fantasizing about the petting animals part). It is a farmhouse (and family) renting out rooms in their home. Just like if you went to a local farm in our country, knocked on the door and asked if you could spend the night. No plush towels, no little shower caps, no fanciness whatsoever. HOWEVER, it was WELL WORTH THE STAY to visit with an Irish family, to have someone to talk to about Ireland, politics, family, culture and getting to know some of the REAL IRELAND PEOPLE. What it's all about. Not just going to Ireland and driving along the tourist traps, and there are tourist traps practically everywhere. Dorothea and her husband and grandchildren where LOVELY. Very down-to-earth people. She invited us to sit in their living room to watch the Rose of Tralee which we had never heard of before that night. It was a special treat. Unfortunately an American from Texas won it. Anyway, if you can deal with thin bath towels, bring your own toiletries and a little dust (not more than the average home) then I highly recommend breaking away to this type of stay for at least part of your vacation. It's a great way to meet real people of a country. And, it was very affordable and she had great local recommendations like to travel counter-clockwise on the Ring of Kerry so you are traveling WITH the tour busses instead of against them on those extremely narrow roads.

Dorothy and Joe greeted us on our arrival with tea and scones. Very quiet location with an incredibly relaxing setting. The hosts made us feel like family friends and that it was not a business, but a sharing of their home. The farm fresh breakfast was amazing and a great start for the Ring of Kerry. Dorothy offered an amazing recommendation for dinner at the Golf Course, with amazing views of the area. This will definitely be on the list next time in Ireland.
