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 Ireland...next time with a rental car! SSSSS

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.SSSSS

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.SSSSS

Salmon Leap Farm was one of the most unique B&B experiences during my week long trip to Ireland. It's hard to believe that the farm is 200 years old since the facilities have been updated - a great combination of old and new. The host Sean practices green tourism including natural soaps and toiletry products, suggestions for low environmental impact activities. He is also very knowledgeable about local history including a historical location on the property. The location is within easy driving distance to Killarney and the Ring of Kerry. Last but not least, the hospitality and breakfast were exceptional.SSSSS

Excellent value for money. The host was very welcoming and personable. He took us for a personal, guided tour of the ancient ruins on his property. His knowledge of the local history and the ancient ruins were fantastic. The rooms were very well appointed and the food was great. SSSSS

SOUTH KERRY VISITOR CHARTER
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:
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.
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.
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.
