The Purple Heather is a warm and homely B&B offering you a peaceful atmosphere and a personal welcome. Located right next to the Gap of Dunloe on the famous Ring of Kerry, just outside Killarney National Park, breathtaking scenery is guaranteed.

All rooms at The Purple Heather are comfortably furnished with Bath/Power/shower/Toilet, Television, and hairdryers. To make your stay even cosier we provide electric blankets and complimentary tea and coffee.

Beautiful mountain views can be enjoyed either from the guest lounge or from the dining room, where an excellent full Irish breakfast is served up every morning.

The Purple Heather is ideally located for exploring the Ring of Kerry, the Dingle Peninsula, the Beara Peninsula, the Gap of Dunloe and Killarney National Park, all of which claim some of the most beautiful landscapes in Ireland.

Kerry is home to a number of prime golf courses as well as plenty of other outdoor activities, including fishing, horse riding, walking and mountain climbing. The local beach is less than half an hour's drive away.
