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.

Joan is a great host and her B & B a wonderful place to stay. The B & B is ideally placed to visit the magnificent places within easy reach. We would recommend this B & B to all travellers to Ireland. We would love to revisit some time in the future - God willing. Barrie & Audrey Perth Australia

Wish I could of stayed more than one night here. Joan welcomed us right in and made us feel right at home. Our room was very clean and comfortable! We enjoyed a delicious Irish breakfast. There was also a variety of breakfast items to choose from. She also was very informative as to places to see and visit in the... More

We couldn´t have asked for more: Joan was a very friendly and helpful host. Our room was clean and confortable and the breakfast was delicious. We stayed around 3 days to explore the beautiful surroundings of Killarney including the national park and the Ring of Kerry. We really enjoyed our time and would stay at The Harp at any time...

We would recommend the Harp. Joan and her daughter were very helpful in suggesting trips etc. Joan's daughter recommended a tour of the Gap of Dunloe which she arranged for us. We were collected and returned to the Harp. It was a wonderful tour. Breakfast was the best we had in Ireland. Joan and her team are great hosts. Kate... More
