The Harp is a larger B&B with about seven rooms. We booked a "twin or double room" and unfortunate got a twin room as a couple, which was not specious but very clean with nice and modern furniture. The shower was a wet room. There was also a dressing table with a mirror at the wall. I got a peak... More

Perfect bed and breakfast in a great location - 10 mins walk into the centre of town and the national park in the other direction. Joan was very welcoming and the breakfasts were brilliant we stayed for 6 nights planned around a family wedding, this was great value for money and we probably paid as much as others did for...

Stayed here last weekend for a wedding on nearby. There were three of us staying two nights and we most certainly owe this place a good review as the service and hospitality we received from the owner was superb. The room was spotless, the shower was excellent, the bed was comfy and anything we asked for was provided. We came... More

Really enjoyed staying here for two nights. Joan is very friendly as is her young assistant Claire. A great breakfast with many choices of food including smoked salmon and pancakes. Free wi-fi although reception in the rooms not great. Would definitely stay again.

My wife and I were 'walk in customers' as we choose to travel without fixed plans. The Harp was a great find. Joan was extremely friendly, and the room had everything we needed. There was a lovely lounge available to guests, with teas and coffees, and a selection of biscuits. The breakfast was probably the best we had in 12... More

We stayed here for a 3 day break, Joan is a lovely host, nothing is to much trouble. Her breakfasts have everything including home made brown bread. The rooms are clean & tidy & well presented. Beds are lovely & comfortable, only downside is the weather which Joan has no control over...... Unfortunately but she will work on it. We... More

My wife and I have just returned from a nice 5 night stay at the Harp in Killarney. The Harp is a small B&B on the Muckross Road about 10 minutes walk to the centre of lively Killarney. There is ample off-road car parking and we were warmly welcomed by Joan. Joan was always pleasant and gave us good advice... More

Killarney is a busy town and parking is a premium. It was a relief to be able to drive into a private parking area in front of the Harp B&B. It is located on the Muckross Road and a short walk into Kenmare Place in the center of Killarney Town. The proprietor Joan McCarthy answered the door and beamed a... More

Stayed here with a group attending a conference in one of the nearby hotels recently and had a great experience. Lovely breakfast, friendly landlady and all the rooms were lovely and warm, just what you want in cold November.
