We spent a month in Ireland. There were many places we stayed that were memorable and wonderful. Considering we have traveled many places over the years, Friars Glen was with out a doubt, the most enjoyable place we have ever stayed. John and Mary were wonderful hosts. Brigid, breakfast server was a marvelous addition to the experience. It was the... More

A beautiful house set in a bucolic and peaceful surrounding. Mary and John are so nice and helpful. The rooms are large and comfortable. The bathrooms are spacious and very clean. The breakfast was delicious and abundant. This is a place worth returning to.

Friar's Glen is a very special place. It is tucked out of the way in a quiet area, but still conveniently close enough to the city center and attractions such as Ross Castle, Muckross House, etc. if you have a car or travel by taxi. The rooms are spotless and spacious. Mary is so attentive and she and Bridget are... More

The perfect place, perfect location and run by the perfectly hospitable couple. Can't say enough about Mary and John and how well they treat their guests. A beautiful place whose beauty can't be captured in pictures. Correct location to access Dingle peninsula, ring of Kerry, and Killarney park. You could spend a week here.

This is beyond expectations. Mary and John are most delightful and the setting is simply magical. You are treated so well that you may never want to leave. They have a dog, Sandy, that I would love to take home. Breakfast is good, too! Mary helps you with any questions about Kilarney or the Ring of Kerry, just ask. Dingle... More

The room was very comfortable and quiet, the breakfast was yummy and Bridgette was a treasure of help and knowledge about tourist sites in the area. Friars Glen is very close to Killarney National Park. It is outside of the town which makes for a peaceful retreat from the touristy town.

Mary was very welcoming and helpful, lots of good advice on driving Ring of Kerry and other points of interest. Nothing was... More

With two weeks in Ireland we loved everyplace we stayed, but this B&B was the best of the best! A peaceful spot with gorgeous gardens, quiet walks in the woods, spacious rooms, fantastic breakfast, and the owners and staff could not have been more pleasant. We hated to leave and will definitely return again. This is a great place from... More
