My husband and I had a very good time in Chelmford, even we spent almost whole day in room to have tea, enjoy the view in room and relax. We were very lucky to stay in the room facing the mountain. The room had a balcony. The room was big and clean. Pat and Louise were very helpful and with... 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

Stayed two nights I would like to thank Louise and Pat for a great stay. We were in room 4 what view of the Killarney National Park Mountains, it was breath taking. The room and house was magnificent although the bathroom was small we don't sleep there so no big deal. If you go you MUST have the Bailey's oatmeal... More

Rooms were clean ,breakfast was great. I would probably not stay here again due to the bathroom size. Maybe crazy,but found it uncomfortable. I've been on lots of cruise ships, not one was this small. Walk possible from town as long as uphill after your night is ok. Took about 15 minutes. Wanted us to take her tours and was... More

Pat and Luis are wonderful hosts who really care of their guests; more than happy to share tips, the rooms are lovely decorated, the view is beautiful, the living room cosy, the breakfast delicious! We had a great time despite the tiny bathroom :-)
