Interaction with Guests
We love to interact with our Guests but we also like to think that we understand when Guests need their privacy. We live on the premises so are on hand for any questions/enquiries.
We have the ideal base from which to explore the Ring of Kerry and experience the true magnificence and unspoilt scenery that this area has in abundance. We arrange boat trips to Skellig Michael, a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Our 100 acre farm has Livestock and Horses plus the family pet, our dog Archie - We are fortunate to have the ruins of the Old Union Workhouse on our farm at Bahaghs (phone number hidden)) – detailed history available for guests to peruse.
Our area of southwest Kerry has been designated as a dark skies reserve, the first place in the Northern Hemisphere to receive such a designation.
The International Dark-Skies Association found that the skies of the Iveragh Peninsula, an area measuring 700sq km, should be designated a dark-skies reserve.
The area is now Gold Tier Dark Sky Reserve. Only two other places in the world, in Namibia and New Zealand, have received such a designation for their pristine skies.
The accolade makes the area attractive to tourists who want to see the night sky without it being affected by light pollution.
This can be enjoyed from your bedroom !
You will best enjoy our area if you have your own transport as our public transport is just 2 services per day - the bus does actually pass our door and do a pick and drop !

We really enjoyed our stay at the Final Furlong B&B! We got in after a long day of driving from Cork and the Ring of Kerry and were welcomed by our great host, Kathleen upon our arrival. We had a room with 2 beds and our own bathroom that was perfect for the night. We had picked up our own dinner of cheese and meats at a market during the day, so we sat on the patio and enjoyed the mild weather, beautiful scenery and the tranquility of the location. The next morning Kathleen prepared a fantastic Irish breakfast that filled us up and we were on our way. I would definitely recommend others to stay along their travels around the Ring of Kerry.
Kathleen was a great hostess. The house was clean, quiet, relaxing, and close to town. Breakfast was also a wonderful start to our day with a beautiful view. We had a lovely stay.
An absolutely perfect b&b with the best view imaginable! Kathleen's Irish breakfast is a must. In a small town with numerous places to stay I wouldn't consider anywhere else!
Spent a lovely and enjoyable night at Kathleen's. Thank you for the dinner recommendation and the tasty breakfast. Rooms were comfortable with ensuites. We enjoyed relaxing in the sitting room in the evening looking out over the river and mountains. Thank you Kathleen!
It was a nice stay at Kathleen's house, the way we expected it. The room was bright and clean and we had an awesome view. The breakfast was tasty and Kathleen was a really good host. She even washed a few trousers for our little son.
Lovely time. The house is very comfortable and Kathleen is a gracious host.mBreakfast was delicious and waking up to the sunrise and horses is breathtaking.
The Final Furlong Farmhouse is certainly one of the most beautiful places where we've ever had the luck to spend time.
It's located right on the Ring of Kerry and the room that we've had provided a tremendous view (we where able to see directly on horses grassing in a incredible landscape).
The breakfast was delicious, it left no wishes open.
