Friars Glen is a beautiful country home set in Killarney's National Park. We were welcomed by the lovely Brigitte who also gave us some great advice about how to best spend our time. We had a lovely spacious room overlooking the expansive grounds, and a large well appointed bathroom. Downstairs there were several areas to relax both inside and out.... More

We absolutely loved our one night at this bed & breakfast and cannot wait to visit Ireland again and stay here multiple nights to enjoy the scenery, wonderful hosts, great rooms and amazing breakfasts. John & Mary are so nice and hospitable. They take the time to get to know you and treat you so well, John offered to help... More

The location is beautiful, the breakfast outstanding, and John, Mary, and Bridgitt could not be more gracious host. It is an easy walk to Molly Darcy's pub for food and music. The Muckross House is an easy drive away( be sure to... More

Friar's Glen is what I would imagine to be the perfect B&B. As Mary explained to us, it is a delicate combination between professional hotel quality service and the feeling of being in a more intimate home. Friar's Glen has perfected this balance. As soon as we walked into the beautiful home, we were greeted delightfully by Mary. She greeted... More

We had a wonderful two nights at Friars Glen. All the staff were warm, friendly and helpful, giving us good information about the walks and drives in the surrounding area. The house itself is delightful. The breakfast was delicious. We thoroughly recommend a stay at Friars Glen.

We stayed here on our trip to Killarney. We stayed two nights and travelled the ring of Kerry. The innkeepers are fantastic and know everything down to which roads have contruction in the surrounding counties. We were so by the innkeepers Bridgette, Mary and John that we didn't want to leave.

We stayed at Friars Glen for two nights in August and what a treat it was. We were greeted by the delightful Mary. She was very knowledgeable about the area and was keen to provide us with tourist information. My girls fell in love with her two golden retrievers Sandy and Holly. It felt like home. The staff were friendly... More

My wife and I spent several night here, and it was beautiful. The location is ideal for nature hikes and exploring the park. Friendly staff and clean, large room. Travel was prior to October 2013, but that's the earliest I can select.

Thank you so much for your kind hospitality and for making our stay so special. We were greeted on arrival with delicious cake and tea and we soaked up the sun (we were lucky!) outside on their delightful patio admiring their lovely garden. Mary and John are delightful couple and just want to make your stay as wonderful as possible... More

This B &B is outstanding, picture postcard location on edge of national park. Beautiful grounds and inside matches first impressions, with tea and cake welcome, large comfortable room, great breakfasts, (no lunch needed) and helpful advice on local sights, eating places etc. Plenty to do and see around the area, we could easily have stayed longer. Parking within the grounds,... More
