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

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

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
