We stayed in the Killarney Guesthouse recently for two nights. The staff are very friendly, the rooms are clean and the breakfast was great. The price was also very reasonable. I highly recommend this guesthouse. It is also very conveniently located just a 10-minute walk from the city centre.

Everyone is so welcoming, warm, friendly and very helpful. Various choices on the menu for breakfast to suit all palates. Homemade bread, scones too...delicious!! Hotel and rooms were clean with all the necessary needs for my stay. When I am back in Cork again, I would certainly want to stay at Killarney Guest House. Many thanks to you all for... More

Stayed here (in Crawford House - part of same hotel). Obviously did well til recently to judge by guide stickers on door - but all well-expired. Place is grubby, curtains falling down, bulbs going etc. Steer clear, there are much better places in Cork.

Stayed here when my mum was in the Bons hospital. It's very handy for hospital visit to Bons or CUH as on bus route. The room I got was spacious but dated carpet and walls. Bathroom very small. Shower with hot water. Noise can be heard from other rooms. First night no sounds but second night there was a TV... More

I had a reasonably pleasant stay here. I was put in the Crawford house (directly adjacent house) in one of the front rooms. The lady who received me was very pleasant. The rooms are clean. Plenty of towels. Bed was comfortable. Breakfast was pretty good the main issue is front rooms are exposed to very loud road- try to get... More

The good thing about the guesthouse is that it is only a 10 minute walk from city center. It is clean and the staff is very accommodating. However, the wifi didn't work well at all. Plus the walls are so thin I could hear the guy downstairs farting, but luckily they moved me to another room. Yet the mattress in... More

We booked the stay at this guesthouse in JANUARY 2013 for our trip in AUGUST 2014. 3rd August 2014, to be precise. Imagine our face when, at our arrival, they didn't know who we were (they thought we had booked early in the morning). Room wasn't ready, we went for a stroll and when we came back they had a...

We enjoyed our stay at the Killarney Guest House. Margaret and Anne Marie greeted us and cheerfully checked us in. When they found out we would be joined by my daughter who was finishing up at UCC on the second night, they gave us a small apartment which was nicer ( according to Margaret ) and fit us just right....

My stay at Killarney house was absolutely perfect, the very warm welcome, the service from all staff and the lady of the house, was second to none, I stayed in an apartment over looking a beautiful park to the front and at the rear of the apartment over looking a cricket pitch, and the night lights from the houses and...
