We had booked 2 rooms for 3 nights and I must admit what other people written down about the bathroom, luckily we changed rooms after 1 night and were at the front with a balcony. Breakfast was served by Louise's daughter who was very friendly and attentive without being in the way. The pancakes were a great start of the... More

Many thanks to Louise and her family for making our stay in Killarney such a wonderful experience. Breakfasts were delicious, room was spacious, tastefully decorated and offered amazing views of the Kerry Mountains. Louise went above and beyond by supplying me with a straightener because mine had blown before arriving in Killarney. She also kindly adjusted her breakfast schedule so... More

I would highly recommend Chelmsford house as the perfect spot to stay when visiting Killarney. Louise, Pat and their daughter Nicola where extremely accommodating and make you feel so welcome in their beautiful home. They offered a great selection for breakfast and offered great advice on tours and ‘must sees’ in the area. Louise organised for the tour company to... More

This is a great place to stay. Walking distance to town. Wonderful room and excellent hot breakfast. Louise was a great help not just planning but also making arrangements for our day trips (With very valuable tips for avoiding pitfalls). Would definitely return.

We stayed for two nights and admired the view from our window every day. This is a great launching place for any trip associated with the Ring of Kerry and Killarney. The room was spotless, well organized and the breakfast was excellent. We agree with other reviewers that the bath was a bit small but many other B&B have similar... More

We truly felt like we were staying with friends while at the Chelmsford House. Pat was there to greet us upon arrival, even though we came later than our expected check in time. The next morning Louise re-booked our carriage tour that we had missed the day before and made sure we didn't miss out on this experience. Our room... More
