Top of the Hill is an awesome place to stay. The home is clean, cozy, and fully equipped. The views from the large windows are breathtaking. It is a great location for touring The Ring of Kerry and the Dingle Peninsula. Eileen, Eamonn, and Muiris were wonderful hosts. We didn't want to leave!

Beautiful place with a great location would stay there again! Eileen, Eaminn, and Muiris were very friendly and helped us get settled in right away. Would recommend to anyone looking for a place in Killarney. The view was wonderful too!

What a lovely, quiet home on the Ring of Kerry! The house was very clean! The view of the mountains from inside the house is spectacular! Our hosts were very easy to contact for any question, direction, etc. They're so nice! Eileen is such a lovely lady! My husband and I enjoyed talking to her. Eileen welcomed us with her fresh baked scones, which were very good! They also provided jams and butter for the scones. They bought milk and ketchup for my little girl. Also, it was my husband's birthday during our stay and Eileen baked chocolate cupcakes for him. This is a "self-catering" house so you will have to cook your own breakfast. If you need to stock up on food, water, or what ever else you need for your stay, Aldi and Super Value grocery stores are only at least 6-minutes away from the house. There's also this gas station near Aldi that has a small grocery store inside and they sell cooked food. We only stayed for 3 nights but it was still not enough time to see everything we wanted to see. We are definitely coming back and will be staying in this lovely house on top of the hill again. The house is only at least 25 minutes away from Kerry airport but it's an easy drive. It's also a 5 minute drive to the town center for shops and restaurants. Overall, we enjoyed our stay here! We can't wait to come back next year! Thank you, Eileen, Eamonn, and Muiri for opening your lovely B&B to my family! Kind regards, Vialynn, Brian, and Kayla

This home is an outstanding value for travel in the Kerry area. Starting with the hosts, you will not find a friendlier, sincere, eager to please host. The house in very comfortable from the beds, to the linens, to the towels. There is a full 4 piece bath in addition to a half bath. With three girls, the extra bath is critical. The full size washer and dryer allow us to travel lighter. Every necessity is provided in the kitchen including bags for shopping at the grocery store. All questions were answered swiftly. I recommend this rental without hesitation and would love to go back someday.

I can't say enough positive things about this place. We loved our stay here and it was perfect for our family. We have 2 young boys and they loved the large yard to run and play. The views are gorgeous and this home is by far the nicest and cleanest I've come across in a vacation home. Eileen makes you feel like an honored guest and was so easy to communicate with. The location was perfect- in between Killarney and Killorgin. Right off the highway but there's hardly any road noise and it made for easy access to town. We will definitely stay here again if we're ever in Ireland!

Great Hospitality from lovely people. Eileen had made delicious scones and zucchini bread, and the house was very clean! We were greeted by rainbows in the morning and the house is conveniently located. Everything was wonderful!

Beautiful setting. Bright , clean house. Plenty of space. Great hosts. Good location for Dingle, Ring of Kerry, or Killarney excursions. The town of Killorglin is a nice town with several good restaurants, and grocery stores. We would definitely recommend Top of the Hill without reservation.
