My wife and myself have just spent an unforgettable week at Friars Glen. Everything about this place is just right. It's location just outside Killarney, where total peace is guaranteed, immaculately kept house, lovely breakfast, perfectly landscaped garden maintained by John himself. But what really sets this place above any other place that we have ever stayed, including 5 star... More

After spending 3 nights in a hostel in Galway, Friars Glen was just what we needed! The owners, husband and wife couple Mary and John, are so sweet! It's as if you're a guest in their own home (which you are). The first thing that John said is "we'll take good care of you!" As soon as we arrived, Mary... More

What a great B&B. I don't know where to start. The pictures don't do it justice. It really is situated in the national park, which is just behind the house. We were welcomed by Mary when we first arrived and were escorted into the main living space. We talked with her about our trip and my wife's Irish heritage as... More

My partner and I stayed here for two nights for our anniversary and couldn't have loved it any more! I barely know where to start! First off, the location is just gorgeous. This is the perfect base from which to explore nature! I know some people have complained that it's a long walk to town but really it's only about... More

My mum and I arrived in Kinsale soaking wet (as per Irish weather) and were greeted by Bridget who welcomed us into the lounge by a warm fire and instantly started asking us how our drive had been and what our plans were. She spent almost an hour helping us plan out our next few days in the area and... More

From the very warm welcome on arrival, with tea and cake, through to fabulous breakfast on departure, I can't find anything to fault at Friar's Glen. The house and gardens are immaculate. Everywhere is homely, comfortable and well appointed. Service is second to none. Mary gave us lots of advice on what to do, where to go, and booked our... More

One of the very best, if not the best, B and B we have ever stayed in. We were greeted by Mary given tea and cake in the lounge and an insight into local attractions. Our room overlooked the back garden and had a wonderful view of the mountains. Room was very spacious as was the ensuite and spotlessly clean.... More

Friar's Glen offers the warmth and hospitality of a B and B combined with features offered in better hotels and inns. On arrival we were offered a cup of tea and cake and Mary took time to tell us about local highlights. Every afternoon a peat fire is lit in the very cozy lounge and guests enjoy a cup of... More

We have had a wonderful time at this B&B! When we arrived we were very well received by Mary and John! We had a warm welcome in all possible ways! Tea and homemade cake, a warm fireplace and a smile! John was great showing us many options for getting around. The location is fantastic! You hear the birds in the... More

We were welcomed by Bridget on our first stay at this wonderful place. Her wit and charm were welcomed and appreciated. Mary and John both are wonderful hosts of this lovely home. We enjoyed hearing how Mary and John came to create Friars Glen. Mary told us some stories that helped us better understand some of the Irish culture and... More
