Why stay at our Beaufort B&B?
There are many reasons to pick a Beaufort B&B when looking for accommodation in Killarney. Although you might be tempted to book accommodation in the town itself there are benefits to being located a few kilometers away.
Inveraray Farm is just a 10 minute drive away from Killarney on the Ring of Kerry. This makes it very convenient if you want to go to town or visit Killarney National Park and Muckross House and Gardens. If you wanted to head west on the Ring of Kerry to see many of Kerry’s other attractions you can avoid Killarney’s traffic altogether.
We’re also within walking distance of a couple of nice pubs and a very short drive to another pub and two restaurants.
You get to enjoy being a world away from the hustle and bustle whilst remaining close to all the action.
Where is Beaufort?
The beautiful parish of Beaufort is a close-knit, rural community on the River Laune. It is located pretty-much halfway between Killarney and Killorglin. Here you get to enjoy a more peaceful and relaxed pace of life whilst remaining close to Killarney’s shops, pubs and restaurants should you want them. However, Beaufort has it’s own pubs and restaurants including Kate Kearney’s Cottage, Beaufort Bar, Heather Restaurant and the Hotel Dunloe so you don’t have to stray too far from home to enjoy a pint at the local, delicious food or live, traditional Irish music.
Inveraray Farm itself has stunning views of the Gap of Dunloe and McGillycuddy’s Reeks with a couple of our upstairs rooms catching a view of Lough Leane across the gardens and the fields beyond. We’re also just a short walk from the Dunloe Ogham Stones which date back to the 3rd century AD.
Beaufort is close to many of Kerry’s tourist hot-spots including:
- The Gap of Dunloe (5 minutes drive)
- Tomies Wood (5 minute drive)
- Kate Kearney’s Cottage (5 minute drive)
- Carrauntoohil (10 minute drive)
- Killarney town (10 minute drive)
- Killarney National Park (20 minute drive)
It is also within easy driving distance from other popular tourist desinations such as Ballinskelligs, Ballybunion, Banna, Dingle, Inch, Kells Bay, Kenmare, Rossbeigh and Valentia Island.
