I booked a double room (15), and although I felt the overall experience was good, with a lovely breakfast, I felt cramped in the room. Close to town, and friendly experience. The landlady kindly let me leave the car at BnB for a couple of hours on day I left, so I could venture into town for a look before... More

We booked on-line the night before and had no problems at all. The location was only minutes (easy) walk to the main part of Killarney. Our room was spacious, very clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was perfect and the lovely lady there was very welcoming and helpful. Would recommend this spot to anyone, you wont be disappointed.

You will not find a better location in killarney. Only 5 minutes walk into the town in a very safe and pleasant area. Great price, great location, Great service, lovely rooms. Breakfast was lovely and couldn't have asked for more. Stayed three times now, and am already planning my next visit.

I stayed in the Countess House while attending a wedding in August. The location was very convenient, the owner of the B&B was very friendly and accomodating, and the breakfast was very good. I would definitely stay here again.

The location of the B6B is great. Not even a 5 minutes walk to the city center of Killarney that offers shops, pubs and restaurants. In my opinion a very warm welcome without trying to hard. When I asked the host for some paracetamol, she sent her husband(?) to get some from the store for me, which I believed to... More

Very nice accommodation, ideally located close the main part of the town. Good sized room, very comfortable. Lovely breakfast and friendly welcoming staff. The only negative I had was that water didn't stay hot for very long after using the shower resulting in a rather painful shave!
