Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We booked for three days as two couples. After the initial confusion of potentially over booked for the last night and wanted us to move rooms the Host sorted the problem out very quickly and wasn’t an issue. The room was clean and tidy as was the room and the bed was nice and comfy. Only one downside was breakfast for example all four wanted toast but had just two slices cut in half although we could request more you would have expected at least one slice per person. Eggs were over cooked. Location great and the owner and staff were friendly obviously work hard.

Stayed here for 5 nights. Had a couple of issues that were dealt with effectively. Communication was great between ourselves and our hosts. The one thing I would say is that a 5 rating would've been given if the room was updated a little. One bed was squeaky and the bedroom area badly needs updating. Was very happy with kitchen, all appliances worked great. Bathroom shower head wasn't great, a shower mat would've been handy. Overall I would recommend this apartment. Very near to beautiful Inch beach, Dingle and the stunning sites of Slead head. A good price for the 5 nights. Would definitely stay again if in the area.

This was a wonderful place to stay in the county of Kerry in rural Ireland. A beautiful setting and a clean and comfortable home. We had 21 and Mary Murphy was a communicative and wonderful host. I highly recommend it if you are in that part of the country.

Stayed here for 3 nights with friends and we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay in this area. The Murphys were so kind and accomodating throughout our stay. They were very knowlegeable on what to do in the area which was also a great help! Breakfast was very good, plenty of options available - even gluten free. Rooms were very spacious and cosy with comfortable ensuite bathroom in each and nice hot showers. The house is well located near Inch beach and is also a short walk away from the local village and the Anvil restaurant (very good Sunday roast!). We did the Uphill Downhill walk from the house which I'd highly recommend for the sceneries around the Keel. Thanks to Mary and family for having us, was wonderful meeting you!

Had an enjoyable stay at this wonderful B&B farmhouse near Castlemaine. Family run with a warn welcome from the Murphy family. I came here as a child in the early 80’s and it still has that friendly hospitable Kerry charm, as Mrs Murphy still manages the place with her family. The rooms do look a little dated, but this also adds to the charm. A little on the expensive side but well placed to explore Dingle, Inch and Tralee

Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful! Friendly hosts, great food, and cozy and clean room. We were close to the Dingle Peninisula, and we were in walking distance town. We will definitely stay there again if we come back to Ireland.

What a great find for our group of (9). We wanted somewhere that we could rest for the night prior to exploring the Dingle Peninsula and this options was perfect. We arrived in from Killarney and the the Ring of Kerry and it was a good stopping point between both the Ring and the Peninsula. If you are looking for a traditional bed and breakfast this is the place - from the minute you drive up to the cute pink house you know you found what you expect in Ireland. We had (9) of us and each room was had it's own bathroom - I had (4) rooms - 3 for couples all with Queen Beds and (1) for 3 with a Queen and (2) twin beds . There is a small parlor for guests to gather in the evening and wifi . It is a short walk to (2) pubs - Murphy's Bar where we enjoyed Pizza - with several options prior to turning in for the night. Mary and her daughter prepared a great breakfast beginning at 8:30am - with several choices. We were full and ready for our trip to Dingle and Slea Head. Would highly recommend a night here if you are finishing the Ring of Kerry and heading to the Dingle Peninsula. Great hosts and very friendly. Thank you Mary !

Murphy’s Farmhouse provides a clean and comfortable stay for a fair price. They are just off Dingle Road making it a handy place to stay. The option for a hearty Full Irish breakfast, and excellent coffee got us off to a good start to the day.

We had a very nice stay at Murphy’s Farmhouse recently, choosing it as a destination that would be in close proximity to the Dingle peninsula. Our room easily accommodated two adults and two kids, and each kid had their own bed. The shower was nice and large, and there was plenty of hot water. There is definitely an older feeling to the farmhouse, with actual keys for the rooms, narrow walkways and creaky floors (ground floor rooms can be a bit noisy with folks staying above), but overall the place is very quaint and cozy. Breakfasts were excellent with a lot of variety, but the breakfast room was a bit of a tight squeeze with lots of people staying there. You can also go say “hi” to the cows out back, as yes, this is an actual farm! The kids really enjoyed that, along with the friendly dog and the very friendly staff. The Anvil Bar in Boolteens is excellent and within walking distance, and the view of the mountains is truly amazing. Highly recommended for folks looking for a place off the beaten path near Dingle.

We stayed here for 3 days and enjoyed every moment of it. The rooms are lovely and well kept, very spacious. The bathrooms are big for B&B standards. Breakfast was delicious, our hosts were very helpful and the cows up front adorable to look at. It’s a dream house.
