Cute B & b. we had to move rooms the second night because a family needed the bigger room. The rooms were very clean and comfy. Tim and Nora were lovely hosts and cooked breakfast to order (eggs, bacon etc) also cereal and juice available. Very close to gap of Dunloe and about 10mim drive from Killarney. Perfect place for doing the Ring of Kerry. Also Kate Keaney's pub nearby was great for dinner


Tim and Nora are the greatest and most helpfull hosts we've met. We had really two beautiful nights at the purple heather. I would highly recommend it!
