The acommodation was very nice with friendly hosts. Our room was clean and big, the bathroom was quiet spacious and also had a bathtub. Breakfast was delicious with everything you could imagine. Especially the bread was lovely. We enjoyed our stay and would really recommend "The Harp"!

Joan made our stay fantastic. She is warm, welcoming, and an excellent cook! Offered advise and made arrangements for us. Our trip around the Ring of Kerry was arranged by Joan and they picked us up at her front gate. And her scones are delicious!

We ended up staying at this B&B by "accident", more so because the B&B we were originally booked at told us there was a mistake with our booking. The original B&B was terrible, so it was a lovely surprise only to learn how fantastic our stay at The Harp would be! From the moment we pulled up into the drive... More

Stayed here some weeks back and from the moment we arrived until the moment we left we felt right at home. Room was spotless and the bed was very comfy. Shower was magic! I've saved the best till last. The breakfast was to die for. Home made brown bread and a river of tea. Joan, the owner was so nice... More

We stayed at The Harp for one night and had a great experience. Joan met us at the door upon arrival and knew exactly who we were. It is a family owned and run B&B and has such a welcoming, at home feeling to it. A few of the other guests had stayed there before (which is always a good... More

We called in here as part of a trip around Ireland, during which we had been camping for the most part. In those terms this was a very welcome relief from the rain and hard ground. The hot showers were fantastic and the double bed was extra comfy! ;-) It has a good location on the edge of Killarney and... More

This was our 4th. stay at The Harp in Killarney. We consider Joan a real friend at this point! She is always welcoming and so kind. The Breakfasts are fantastic and delicious. This B&B is also in a great location, a short walk to dine and a very quick ride to the center of town.

I can't imagine that there is a better B&B in Killarney. Three of us stayed here for three days in late May. The beds were very comfortable, the rooms were spacious and clean, and the breakfasts were delicious. In fact, all of the other guests we met at The Harp were repeat customers. I think the best part of The... More
