WHEN WOULD YOU LIKE TO STAY?
A sixth generation working farm nestling at the foot of the Slieve Mish Mountains on the Dingle Peninsula. The farmhouse is ideally located on the Wild Atlantic Way for touring the Dingle Peninsula and the Ring of Kerry, as Castlemaine village is the gateway between both areas. This traditional and comfortable farmhouse is renowned for its friendly welcome and excellent cuisine providing an extensive breakfast menu to choose from which will satisfy the most discerning of food lovers. All bedrooms have en suite facilities, king size beds, electric blankets, television and tea & coffee. For the golfing enthusiast Murphy's Farmhouse is ideally located as it is within a 30 minute drive from the following world renowned golf courses, Killarney, Ballybunion, Barrow, Dooks and Killorglin. Walking is another activity that the area is proud to offer, Murphy's Farmhouse is perfectly situated for the Kerry Way and the Dingle Way walking routes. Inch beach is 15 minutes drive where surfing is available.
We stayed three nights at this lovely, quiet, and peaceful location in Boolteens, near Castlemaine, Co. Kerry. The easy to find location was just perfect for jaunts into the Dingle Peninsula, Limerick and Ring of Kerry. Our room was immaculate and very comfortable, and had the largest ensuite bathroom of all our B&B reservations. The shower had great water pressure and plenty of hot water. Breakfast was a delight with great choices, and deliciously prepared food served by one of the many “Marys” of the Murphy family. Although our view from the second floor looked out to the farm buildings, someone placed a beautiful pot of flowers on the roof outside the window which was a lovely surprise. It was a pleasure staying there during our trip and I can highly recommend this establishment to others. For us a much better choice than staying in busy Dingle town or other such locations. This was a calm retreat at the end of each tiring travel day.
Very comfortable 3 nights, room excellent nice shower, excellent breakfast in morning, couldn't be better. Very central for Dingle, Tralee Killarney and other places of interest.
