We stayed at the Mountain Dew in October 2013 not October 2014 so some time ago. It was terrific. Hosts were fantastic and very obliging of the fact that we were caught taking longer on the Ring of Kerry and would not get in until around 7.30 pm. They suggested we have dinner and come after that. Layout was great.... More

This place was great. They let me check in early, the person who checked me in even did my laundry for me. They were very accomodating and friendly. It was a short walk to the beautiful town of Killarney( I wouldn't want to do it in heels), which had all sorts of Christmas decorations up. the breakfast she made in... More

I just got back from a week long trip to Ireland. I ended up staying in Mountain Dew after the ring of Kerry. I love this place. It was cold out when I went and the room was SO incredibly cozy and warm. Also, it was very pretty and presentable and clean. The bathroom was a bit small, particularly the... More

Hands down, this was the best B&B we stayed at during our multi-stop Ireland trip in late September. None of the others could hold a candle to Eileen and her hospitable accommodations. Not to mention that Eileen was one of the kindest, most friendliest caretakers we came across as well. Caretakers at two B&Bs were great, the others...not so much.... More

This was recommended by a friend but we weren't impressed. On the positive side, the location was great for walking into the city or down to Killarney National Park. Also, the breakfast was great. What we didn't like was that the room and bathroom were tiny. They were clean but clearly older. The whole place felt more like a small... More

We recently stayed at Mountain Dew with my toddler. Eileen was extremely accommodating, providing a crib/cot, high chair during breakfast, and extremely affordable laundry service. I would recommend taking advantage of her boxed lunch, as it is very easy to stop wherever you want to enjoy the views on the Ring of Kerry or Dingle Peninsula. We wish we would... More

1.The room and bathroom were very clean, the bed was comfortable but the pillows weren`t that soft. 2. The breakfast was very tasty with a really wide offer! 3. Eileen was a very nice and friendly hostess, who gave us important advices for our trips in Killarney. 4. The Mountain Dew is very close to the town center so it's... More
