We were at this B&B as it opened for the spring season. The room was small but had two beds: a double and a single. The bathroom was tiny. The views out the windows are lovely and the place is spotless. We unfortunately were too early in the season to see the flower gardens shown on the business card. I... More

I stayed at the Chelmsford House B&B run by Luis and Pat in September 2013. Quaint home, beautiful area outside to have tea, private bathrooms in room. I had a cute room with two twin beds and sunflower decorations. It was very very clean. I am a stomach sleeper and asked for a squishy pillow to sleep with and when... More

We stayed here at the end of September (end of their travel season). The Chelmsford House is located a short walk or drive into Killarney. The rooms were very clean and I didn't ever hear anyone else when in our room. We used this as a jumping off point to Dingle and it was easy to get from here around... More

At Chelmsford House, we truly did feel as though we were at our home away from home. Louise is warm and friendly. The B&B is beautiful and very comfortable. The gardens are lovely and the view is breath-taking. It is a safe and easy walk to places to eat and pubs. No worries about having a pint and driving and... More

Chelmsford House is conveniently located to downtown Killarney. The room was clean and quiet. We were on an extended driving tour and welcomed the sense of just being home for the night. We are runners and really appreciated the close proximity of the National Park and its extensive network of walking paths. We ran out to Ross Castle and back... More

We stayed here for 3 nights, our room was clean and the beds were very comfortable. We had a beautiful view of Muckross lake and most of the valley around it, absolutely stunning views. Also, It is not common to find blow dryers in the rooms in Ireland, but Louise had one for me as well as a curling iron... More

The location is good, a very quiet area 10 minutes from the city center by walking and from our room there was an amazing view of mountains and lakes. The room is clean and very lovely, the garden is awesome and the breakfast is excelent!

We had a pleasant stay at Chelmsford House, just a quick-drive or short walk from downtown Killarney. There was a large, balconied room with a marvelous view, a comfortable sitting room for guests, a generous breakfast menu, good rates even in the busy summer season, and helpful, informative hosts. Everything we were looking for :)
