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

This b&b was of a high standard. The house and surroundings have lots of character. Our room was beautiful and had everything we needed. We had a choice of breakfast which came promptly & lived up to expectations. Above all though was the standard of hospitality...the owners were so nice & helpful. Will definitely stay here again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Salmon Leap. Sean was most helpful and attentive, with great advice for touring the area.
Breakfasts were outstanding with very prompt service in pleasant surroundings. Our double room was comfortable with an excellent power shower and suited our needs.
Loved the area and were glad to have had three days to explore.
Thanks for your kind hospitality.SSSSS

We had a lovely stay at Salmon Leap, unfortunately we were only stopping over for one night, once we saw how beautiful the surrounding area and accommodation facilities were, we were sorry we didn't have more days available to explore. Shaun and his family are warm, friendly and helpful. They've really worked hard to offer quality accommodation facilities showing off the best of the beautiful environment they live in. We would definitely love to come back!SSSSS

My wife and I stayed at Salmon Leap Farm last week and were treated like royalty by Sean. A warm, beautiful and inviting home, spacious bedroom and fantastic breakfast and conversation. We would highly recommend Salmon Leap Farm to anyone visiting this area. Chances are good that we will be back in a few years and we would like this to be the place to stay once again. Thanks!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.
