We stayed at this wonderful farmhouse for 4 days and loved every minute of it. It is a working farm with the whole family involved with the day to day operations. We loved the view to the pasture from our room. We could watch them pick up hay in the afternoon. If you took a short walk to the back of the house you could watch the cows get milked in the mornings. Her garden in front was really beautiful. The breakfast selection was the biggest we saw during our stay in Irelandand delicious. Mrs. Murphy was very helpful with suggestions on which tour operator to take for Ring of Kerry as well as providing an extra early breakfast so we could hit the road early for Dingle. If we come back to Ireland we would most definitely stay there again.
