Our Reviews

Salmon Leap Farm is a jewel. Sean was so kind, as was his lovely mother. They welcomed us graciously and the time spent there was wonderful. Such a clean, comfortable place. Sean showed the burial site to us and gave us an outstanding history lesson. He also gave us tips for driving to, and in, Killarney. My husband and I would recommend this B and B to everyone. It was actually one of the lower priced B and Bs that we stayed at, yet roomy and exceptional. It was perfect. Thank you Sean and family. S S S S S

Beautiful B and B in a convenient location. On our first day there we were welcomed with a tea service. The staff were welcoming and accommodating. We stayed at Salmon Leap Farm for three nights. Our room was very nice and cozy. Breakfast was delicious. The B and B also has an environmental conservation policy, which we really appreciated. The only negative thing was that there was only wifi access in the common areas. It wasn't a big problem but it would have been nice to be able to be in our room and plan the next day of our vacation or check emails rather than in the living room. We would stay here again.

Salmon Leap is our favorite B&B. It is comfortable and Sean is most welcoming. It is conveniently located yet out of the hustle and bustle of major tourist areas. After a great nights rest, a wonderful breakfast starts you on another day. S S S S S

My boyfriend and I had a fantastic time at Salmon Leap Farm! We had booked the B&B in advance believing we would have a rental car; however, when we arrived in Ireland we learned that the cost of the rental car was out of our price range. We had to take a taxi out to the B&B it is a little ways outside of town and were worried about having to take taxis around the next day that we were in Killarney. Turned out to be no problem because Sean was kind and not only took us into town in his car, but also showed us exactly where we could go to rent bikes and have a wonderful day in Killarney National Park. We are very grateful for his generosity! We also loved the Irish breakfast, the room we were given, and getting a tour of the ancient burial site on the grounds of the B&B. We will absolutely be back the next time we were in time with a rental car! S S S S S

We were so happy we stayed at Salmon Leap. It was the most peaceful part of our trip through Ireland. The room was a great size, the bathroom and shower was awesome as well. The view out the back of the property is amazing. We received excellent service while here, and enjoyed our coffee/tea in the afternoons sitting by the cozy fire. S S S S S

Salmon Leap was one of the best experiences I have ever had at any B&B. The proprietor was friendly and very professional; the room was ultra-clean, the breakfast great, the locality stunning and the proximity to town just lovely. I can recommend Salmon Leap with a very clear conscience; a great place to stay, and very convenient for the journey onwards to Cork. S S S S S

Feel good on holiday

We are working with the Green Tourism Business Scheme (GTBS) to make South Kerry more eco-friendly, but we need your help. We can all reduce our impact on the environment by making choices. As a visitor you have a very important role to play in helping us to conserve our natural assets and become a more sustainable destination. Here are our recommended tips on how you can help:

Conserve Energy
Reduce energy by switching off lights and closing windows if heating is on. Sustainable Energy Authority Ireland provides information on what you can do at home.

Give the Car a Rest
Leave the car behind, if only for a day. Walk, cycle or use public transport. We will happily provide you with advice.

Shop Local
Use local products, they give you a flavour of the area and help support local communities. We are fortunate to have some fantastic producers of food, drink and arts and crafts. Find out about local markets or local and regional produce

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
Try to avoid overly packaged goods and say no to that extra carrier bag. You can also support the destination and businesses in their efforts by using recycling facilities provided. Ask us as we have information on what you can recycle locally.

Be Water Wise
Ireland has rising costs for water treatment and flood defence so please use water wisely. Turn off the tap when brushing your teeth and adhere to towel policies or other water saving initiatives.

Respect Nature
Help us to look after the landscape and wildlife by not littering, guarding against fire and using footpaths and cycle-ways responsibly. Ensure you adhere to the principles of Leave No Trace when out in the countryside.

Support Green Businesses
There are numerous businesses in South Kerry working to reduce their carbon footprint through the GTBS. Choose green accommodation when you are booking your holiday in South Kerry.
