This is a very lovely home. Very modern, well appointed and very clean. Took a couple wrong turns to find but well worth it. Get good directions before you set out. Hostess took good care of us especially with breakfast. You choose your breakfast the night before and leave your order on the entry table. What a treat we had.... More

This is such a beautiful house and our room was lovely with stunning views. The hosts are friendly. Breakfast was wonderful. A 20min walk gets you to the heart of the action in Killarney and a short drive puts you in the middle of all the attractions of Killarney including Muckross House, Ross Castle and The Gap of Dunloe. We... More

A beautiful B and B. Very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Hosts were extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfast was outstanding. Great choice on the menu, the crepes with the fresh fruit was delicious. We sat outside looking at beautiful gardens in the evening. Highly recommend. BTW I suggest to book your lodging through BandBIreland rather than other sites..

We stayed there for 3 nights at Chlemsford House and it was a great choice for us. Louise and Pat are fantastic hosts and are very friendly, attentive, and helpful to their guests and go out of their way to create a welcoming B&B. I called Louise because we were running late and I thought we'd missed the last ferry... More

We stayed at Chelmsford House for 4 nights from 8th-12th Aug. We used it as a place to stay while we went on day trips around the area. We stayed in a huge room which my husband called, "The Presidentail Suite". We had a balcony looking out over the mountains! The room was absolutely spotlessly clean and the brekkie's were... More

We stayed 3 nights here, and loved the accommodations. The family was very accommodating and welcoming. The room was superb, the breakfast was tasty and substantial. This was the best of the B&B's we stayed in.

This is the best B&B ever! My son and I stayed for two nights while visiting Ireland. The owners are very nice and friendly and the accommodations were spotless. Breakfast was the best as we were able to choose from a selection of breakfast items; a great cook too! Town was just a short 8 minute walk so dinner was... More

We were sent there by another B&B owner where we stayed the night before. An excellent suggestion. The house had a very nice view from our room which was very large in comparison to the other B&B's we stayed in Ireland, as it was the bed too. WiFi was working perfectly. The owners were very friendly and helpful and breakfast... More

We stayed there for 2 nights, we could stay for a week! The house was wonderful, our room was large, with a nice wooden floor. The Irish breakfast was delicious, really, everything was perfect! Killarney is a good starting point to visit the national park, ring of Kerry and Dingle.

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
