Follow the signs and you'll get there, don't turn back at the first or second gate because it is so worth the trip to the end of the road! We were greeted by Vera and 4 of her beautiful dogs (they are very friendly). Vera...More

A beautiful setting overlooking a valley. The owner was very interesting and she has beautiful works of art. I especially liked her tree house. It's hard to find. Had to go through 2 (I think) cattle gates. But worth the effort

This place is a real find, a wonderful very Irish--read magical, quirky, creative--experience even though the owners originally are from Germany. It is fairly close to the Bonane Heritage Park; both attractions are an easy drive from Kenmare, and both can be visited the same...More
