My wife and I along with another couple were doing a car tour of Ireland and stayed here for our time in Killarney. It is the most picturesque location and even had deer run through the back yard during a great Irish Breakfast. Owners are great and very helpful about things to do and the surrounding area.

I am so happy to leave this review. My best friend and I went on an 8 day trip to Ireland last week and Friar's Glen was one of the B&B's we stayed at. Our only regret is that we didn't have more than one night to spend here. John and Mary were such wonderful and gracious hosts. John greeted... More

We were here for 3 nights in May 2014. Expectations were high because of the rave reviews, but we were blown away when we arrived - WOW, what a property ! It is a huge property, spread over acres of land, and a beautiful house. It is so tastefully decorated, and the furnishings everywhere leave you gaping. You need a... More

Spent our first night in Ireland at this AMAZING, peaceful and beautiful B & B in Killarney National Park. The host, Mary, is friendly,warm and kind and very helpful in answering any questions about your trip. Breakfast was fabulous - really hated to leave after only 1 nite. Would make a trip back to Ireland just to spend more time... More

We stayed at Friars Glen for three nights. It was one of our first stops on our trip to Ireland and it really put us off to a good start. The rooms and common areas were just wonderful. The food was even better! Mary, Bridget, and John were the best of all. Mary was always there to give recommendations and... More

We stayed at Friars Glen in June for 2 nights. It's perfectly situated within Killarney National Park and close to all the wonderful surrounding sights. We were so impressed with Friars Glen and in particular Mary and her helper Brigitte. Apart from being a gracious host, Mary was most helpful in providing suggestions and information on sights to see as... More

We stayed 2 nights at the Friar's Glen and it was our favorite lodging by far (and cheapest too)! The location for us was perfect. It is located just outside of Killarney City and is within the Killarney National Park. The grounds are beautiful and peaceful. You can go on walks on or near the inn. If you want to... More

All the comforts of a hotel with all the charm of a B&B! Friar's Glen had spacious suits with updated bathrooms, beautifully decorated common rooms, a picturesque setting, great location, amazing host (Mary is lovely!)... I can't say enough good things about this place!

I give this B&B 5 stars only because I cannot give it more. There is a very good reason that it rates #1 on Trip Advisor. It is absolutely perfect in every way. The location is fantastic. Walking the grounds is pleasant and refreshing, The house itself is perfect. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was equally... More

Mary and John were wonderful hosts, getting us settled and then making dinner reservations for us so we did not have to worry about finding a place to eat or dealing with the hassle of reservations. Location is very peaceful and also convenient for visiting many areas throughout Kerry. Breakfast was delicious and filling and before checking out, Mary helped... More
