A charming B&B near the Gap of Dunloe

Inveraray Farm is located in a beautiful rural setting and enjoys spectacular views

Our B&B looks out across the Gap of Dunloe and the Macgillycuddy Reeks and is an ideal base to stay and explore the Reeks District and Killarney as well as the rest of the county of Kerry and West Cork.

The majority of our rooms have wonderful views with the south-facing rooms overlooking the Gap and the Reeks and the east-facing rooms overlooking our gardens, Killarney Mountains and the Cork Kerry Mountains. Four rooms have their own private entrances so you can come and go as you please. We talk about the B&B in more detail in the Facilities section of the site.

It’s also very family-friendly. We have three young children ourselves and have a large outdoor area including a trampoline and some play equipment. We also have an indoor play room but, due to the current pandemic, its use is restricted for now.

The history of Inveraray Farm.

Inveraray Farm was built by Noel and Eileen Spillane and is a family-home first and foremost. Both were raised on family farms in county Kerry so farming is in the blood but they went on to become full-time teachers at secondary level. They started offering B&B accommodation during the summer holidays and the business grew from there. Originally the farm produced fruit and vegetables but today rears suckling cows.

Noel and Eileen had five children and as their family expanded so did the house, with two new wings and a new dining room added over the years. When they retired from teaching they focussed on providing guest accommodation full time. In 2020 they moved into their new home right next door to Inveraray Farm and are still involved with the day to day running of the B&B.
