We had a wonderful stay here. We rented two rooms. One for my husband and I and the other for our three adult age children. It was a beautiful setting and we enjoyed the gardens and the cows in the field next door. Also enjoyed the wonderful Irish breakfast too. Definitely would stay here again! S S S S S

Mr. MacDonnell was a great host, very helpful in planning day trips. The rooms were excellent, clean, spacious, with a great view of the Kerry Mountains. Tom makes a good Irish breakfast with tasty muffins. I have stayed at Birchwood before and will again when I am in Kerry. S S S S S

An amazing B&B! A welcoming and helpful host that gives advince for the trip. Delicious breakfast with the possibility to ask something else every morning. The room was clean and the bed very confortable. The B&B is at a calm place, but not far away from Kilgarvan. A huge thanks to Tom for beeing able to see the Skellig Islands thanks to him. I can only encourage to go there, it is a very nice B&B. S S S S S

I booked Birchwood for a group of nine eight adults and one three year old family members. Our experience was outstanding. Tom did a wonderful job of hosting our large group. He was able to help us with sights and directions, assisted with any questions we had, and served possibly the best breakfast in all of Kerry. We stayed for three nights and thoroughly enjoyed the accommodations and the tranquil setting and beautiful grounds. If we are blessed with the opportunity to make another trip to Ireland we will be looking to book Birchwood again. S S S S S

Excellent place to stay: friendly, warm welcome, spacious room, very good breakfast with home made bread. Good advise for trips in that region. This was best B&B we had during our holiday-travelling in Ireland and we had good ones. S S S S S

Easily the best B&B in Ireland and we have stayed in many The rooms were very clean, with comfortable beds. The food home cooked fresh each morning. Plenty of cereals, fruit ,yogurt, cake,& homemade bread. A menu from which to choose your cooked breakfast. Which was perfect. We were a party of four and as we all had different tastes it was lovely to have just what you wanted. We were not rushed, very relaxing looking out over the mountains. Our host was a mine of information. He pointed out the best routes to take and the best places to eat at night. Perfect. Well in excess of 5 S S S S S
