What a combination! A magnificent, stylish B&B, a national park surrounding you and finally the tag team of Mary & Brigid (plus John of course). If you could imagine your perfect B&B, you would be thinking of Friars Glen. The welcome is superb, the rooms spotless and well equipped, plus the hospitality of Mary and Brigid goes that extra mile.... More

My husband and I stayed here last year and loved it so much we came back. It is truly a lovely place and the grounds are beautiful, complete with morning deer visits! Our room was on the first floor and was roomy, spotless, and suited us to a "T"! John and Mary and Bridget are friendly, helpful, and so very... More

An absolute privilege to stay in such a surreal place. An outstanding 5 star country bed and breakfast just outside killarney national park. The owners went above and beyond any expectations to make your stay comfortable. I was personally driven into town to pick up my car rental. Beautiful, comfortable, and relaxing........

Friar's Glen is a charming inn located right inside Killarney National Park. If you want to do any walking/hiking, this is the ideal place to stay. Easy walk to Muckross House and the Abbey, as well as several lovely walking trails, and it's right on the Ring of Kerry if you're doing the scenic drive. Mary is a wonderful host... More

We recently stayed at Friar's Glen & loved it! The grounds are so beautiful, we were able to see deer on the lawn every morning at breakfast! The room was very comfortable & the breakfasts were delicious. Mary & Brigid made us feel very welcome. This a great location for exploring Killarney National Park.

Could not believe our luck in having booked this beautiful B&B. Our room was spacious and lovely, the entire property is gorgeous, and Mary, John and Bridget were so helpful and kind. We loved getting to play with the dogs too! We appreciated the huge, sky-lit bathroom and the multiple convenient outlets for our many electronics. When in Killarney, this... More

We stayed two nights at Friars Glen and loved the warm hospitality, nice clean up to date rooms, comfortable beds and great food. Mary and Bridgid went out of their way to help us with directions to the places we wanted to visit and the best routes. The forested location is very beautiful. We certainly would make a point to...

My husband and I stay for 2 nights last week at the Friars Glen, our only regret is that we had not stayed longer. Our room was a nice size, both mornings while enjoying a delicious breakfast we watched the red deer and saw the background of the mountains. I believe a person would have to look long and hard...

We spent 2 nights at this great B&B in late September 2014. Our Tripadvisor research reviews strongly assisted with our decision to stay here and we were not disappointed. The hosts were so friendly and helpful to make our stay comfortable. During our delicious breakfast, Brigit and Mary made sure that we had everything we needed for our day's plans... More
