We had a very nice stay, Mary was very helpful and informative about the local area. Also lent us a book for our own research. We stayed for 4 nights, the room was a good size although only had a shower which was bearable for time stayed. The breakfast was very good with plenty of variety. Really enjoyed our stay... More

My husband and I spent one very full and somewhat rainy week visiting many of the sites in and around Killarney. Our stay in this area was greatly improved because of the welcoming and warm hospitality given to us by the innkeeper Mary. Her knowledge of the area and some of her suggestions on how to best work around the... More

Arriving at Carranross was wonderful. We were exhausted from driving from Dublin (1st day driving on the opposite side for us) and doing various activities. Because of this, we were going to be arriving later than anticipated so we called Mary who was very understanding and accommodating. The room was lovely and spacious, everything was clean and worked properly. The... More

We had a lovely stay at Carranross. We had a large twin room with a real shower. The beds were very comfortable and Mary made a lovely breakfast. She was also so kind as to bring us a snack to go with our tea in the afternoon. A great choice.

This was the best B&B on our 8 day trip in Ireland. The rooms were clean, updated, comfortable and very roomy! However, I have to say the best part of our stay was the hostess, Mary. She made our stay there truly memorable. She had all the little things one might need in the event they had forgotten: toiletries, electric... More

We stayed here for 3 nights on our Honeymoon and it was perfect. Mary was amazing. We loved her breakfasts and she gave us great advice for our travel plans. The rooms were quiet, comfortable and clean. The place is about a 10 min walk outside of town which we loved because it was so quiet. I highly recommend this... More

This is by far the best choice I made during my holiday in Ireland. The B&B is located outside town, but at an easy 10-15 minutes walk. The bus station is 10 minutes away (same direction as city center). The room was bright, really big and spotless clean. The furnishing and décor were quite pleasing. The bed was really comfortable.... More

Mary is the owner of Carranross House, and her advice and care was priceless. The price is extremely good for the quality of this B&B and the food (I'm really missing her eggs and smoked salmon). Mary was sooo welcoming, and her advice on what to do was individualized to our tastes and was perfect...due to her years of experience... More

Stayed here for the Ring of Kerry Cycle this year and it turned out to be the perfect choice...it's situated only a ten minute walk from the town, the rooms are a great size, the breakfast is super and Mary couldn't have been more helpful. Highly recommended.
