Sean was a great host/very welcoming. The house and room were amazingly clean. Overall great accommodations. The area and the views were spectacular as this home/farm is situated amidst the mountains. Lovely place outside Killarney - just a short drive into town. Thanks for a great time.

Words cannot express the incredible stay we had at Salmon leap. The host, Sean, manages an incredible farm that will make you feel like you’re at home. The place was charming and our room was very comfortable with a scenic view of the valley and mountains. I stayed there with my mom and brother, and it happened to be my brother’s birthday. We asked Sean if we could have a complimentary cake, but not only did he get us cake, but he also gave my brother a birthday card with a lovely message. We stayed there for two nights, and throughout our stay, Sean gave us a lot of insight into Ireland’s history and culture. Breakfast was great and the dining room was enchanting. Regardless to say, if you are looking for a place to stay in Killarney, or even in the whole of Kerry, Salmon Leap is the best place you can choose.

We had a nice two night stay at the Salmon Leap while touring through Ireland. Sean greeted us when we arrived after a long drive and got us set-up in our rooms (2 and 5). The rooms were a good size and worked perfectly for our situation. The breakfast was great and ready when we requested it. The continental options were great and hot meals were well prepared. We also enjoyed the sitting area one evening. The views out our window were great and we got a spectacular showing from a waterfall off in the distance with the rain from the night before. One thing to note - I almost went to the wrong place, since Google returned a different Salmon Leap location in Kilarney - it's actually south east of Kilarney in Glenflesk at these coordinates 51.983860, -9.327859 (TripAdvisor shows correctly).
