Wayside is a very welcoming place. Eugene and Teresa couldn't do enough for us. They even gave us a lift to a pub nearby. What hotel would do that? It's not a luxury guesthouse but if you want good value, a nice welcome, great views of the mountains and the Gap of Dunloe, and a lovely breakfast then we don't... More

The room was pretty small and simple, but it wasn't packed and was very comfortable. The hostess offered a pretty wide variety of breakfast options, and she and her husband were happy to give us a ride to the nearest bar and offer any other help we needed.

We had a wonderful stay at Wayside. Eugene and Theresa were wonderful hosts! They were warm, friendly and full of Irish hospitality. Our rooms were clean and comfortable. The breakfast was fantastic as well. We would gladly return for a longer stay. The Eaves Family

We did not get a very welcoming feeling when we arrived here as the hostess was very brisk and formal. The room was just good enough, the shower was inside the bedroom which was not ideal. The shower actually went cold after about 5 minutes the first morning, which we then reported. The next day the shower was not working... More

In response to your recent review of my business I am sorry that you felt that way about your stay. I clearly remember welcoming you to my home as I do with all guests, also I remember you in the shower for 1hour,as its a power shower and I can hear the pump working. I had a 60gallon tank of...

A really enjoyable stay , great location especially if climbing in the area, greeted by tea and scones after a very wet climb, facilities to dry out wet gear , really great welcome & owners could not do enough to accommodate us including driving us to the pub! Highly recommend & will be back!

We stayed at Wayside for 2 nights while attending a wedding locally. It was one of the nicest accommodation experiences I have ever had. I can honestly say the Ritz couldn't have provided a more comfortable, hospitable experience. The owner Theresa was so genuinely welcoming and kind. Her husband drove us personally into Kilarney when we were going to meet... More

The Wayside was a fantastic B+B, so welcoming and warm. I was meeting up with Family from all over the world for a mini "Gathering" 2013 and I was glad I we picked the Wayside to stay in. Clean, Good Food and Teresa was a fantastic hostess! :) Anyone could see this is the "Best in the Gap"

Whilst passing through in June I stayed here with my partner. So quiet and peaceful and the surrounding area was so beautiful. We were made feel very welcome and I enjoyed one of the nicest sleeps of my life! Lovely Irish breakfast the next morning to set us up for the day. I would recommend this b&b to anyone planning...

Hidden gem. Perfect location for exploring the gap of Dunloe. I stayed here with my fiance for 1 night 2 weeks ago. We decided last minute to go on a weekend away. Had nothing booked. We just called in off the road to see if they had a room and you would nearly think the owner was expecting us. She... More

Wayside was not welcoming. It seems we were an imposition to our hostess. The room was sufficient for our needs but we did not want to stay another night. The scenery of the area is wonderful and this is a great location for day trips into the Ring of Kerry and Killarney. Kate's cottage is just down the road and... More

Dear Erin, We thank you for your feedback on our B & B. We are deeply disappointed you left us feeling as you did as we strive to provide the warmest of welcomes to our guests who are visiting our beautiful Gap of Dunloe. Sending you our apologies and hoping it doesnt prevent you from visiting Kilarney in the future.... More
