We just got back from Ireland- spent 10 great days touring this beautiful country- the highlight as far as our accomaditions had to be the three nights we spent at Fern Rock with our lovely host Irma. We ended using this as our base of operation for touring both the Ring of Kerry and the Dingle Preninsula. Irma not only... More

Just back from another visit to Puck Fair. We've been going every year and never look past Fern Rock. Irma was once again as helpful and pleasant as ever. She's always great for booking restaurants and giving local tips etc. Looking forward to next year already!

We had the pleasure of doing a "go as you please" Irish holiday. This involved a good many "B & B's." We didn't realize how different traveling directions could be in Ireland, as opposed to the USA & Great Britain. Who would have thought postmen would just know a person's house by their name, or something as benign as "up... More

To my surprise, on leaving Killorglin after 3 nights stay, I realised what I’d miss the most afterwards was the hospitality provided by Irma and John at Fern Rock! From the moment myself and my wife arrived we were made to feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. They have the service balance of always being there to... More

My 9 and 10 year old daughters had their first ever B&B experience at Fern Rock! They told me to give Ms Irma 5 stars and I have to agree. Fern Rock is ideally located to start the Ring of Kerry and a short 20 mins drive from Killarney for anyone wishing to stay away from the hustle and bustle.... More

We had an enjoyable 8 days at Fern Rock. We were made to feel really welcome and were given trip advice that was perfect for our stay. We did the Skellig Ring, traveled many side roads, and played at the area golf courses. Everything was great! Great Country Setting with sheep in the pasture behind and the birds fun to... More

Everything very correct. They gave us a good tip for a restaurant and the owners really helpful and kind. (You need a car to stay there). ------------------------ Muy correcto. Los dueños muy amables y colaboradores en todo, y nos aconsejaron un buen restaurante. Hace falta tener coche.

Irma was most welcoming, very hospitable and more than helpful. It is a good location for exploring the Ring of Kerry and the Dingle Peninsular. Our second evening we ate at the Golf Club almost next door and had a great meal.
