We had no trouble finding the Ferris Wheel BNB. It fit our image of a country Irish B and B perfectly. It was meticulously clean, the proprietor was kind and helpful, breakfast was very good. The location was breath-taking and beautiful. Down the road a short way is an amazing restaurant called Heather. Our dinner was superb. Fresh food raised right there on the premises prepared by a chef as good as any in Dublin. The bread alone was worth the trip. Our stay and dinner were also very fairly priced. SSSSS

We enjoyed our stay. Great location in the Gap. Sleeping rooms very nice. Would have been nice to have sitting area in the house as we were a party of 4 and the sleeping rooms were not large enough to accommodate socializing.SSSSS

This turned out to be a great stop, just follow the many signs to Gap of Dunloe and Kate Kearney's Cottage. Kate Kearney's is an easy walk for dinner and refreshments and don't miss the Gap - some of the best views in Ireland. The Ferris Wheel was very welcoming and accomodating, helped us with laundry after 3 wet cycletouring days. Nice room amenities inclding coffee and tea. A good breakfast menu we never got past smoked salmon and eggs. It's a very quiet, peaceful location, especially after the jaunting cars go home.SSSSS
