The Ferris Wheel is located in the shadow of some of Ireland's highest mountains, right at the beginning of the Gap of Dunloe. Note that currently Google maps location for the B&B is incorrect.The correct location is about 1 km north of the indicated location.
John and Nora Ferris are warm, friendly, witty hosts. Both went out of their way to make our stay most enjoyable. John took us up the gap in the jaunting car (two wheeled horse-drawn carriage) that has been in his family for about a hundred years. He is a fourth generation jarvey (carriage driver).
The breakfast was great, with a good selection of cold items in addition to the hot items that need to be ordered. The only quirky thing about the B&B were the showers, but that was a minor issue. Highly recommended.
