Set in its own 28 acres within Killarney National Park, this stone house is a dream retreat for nature lovers. The flower beds have to be protected from deer that ramble in to eat the colorful flowers. Though traditional in style, the house is new and has all the modern comforts. Owner-manager Mary Fuller keeps an eagle eye on the day-to-day running of the place, so it's spotlessly clean. A hefty pine staircase and pine-clad corridors lead to rooms with solid country pine furniture. The location is on a side road near Muckross Park's gates, a pleasant half-mile walk from the nearest pub and restaurant.
