Wow, is all I can say. This place is up a secluded road, in the national park, yet only about two miles from Killarney. We stayed three nights. John and Mary were fabulous. The home itself is "5 stars", and the breakfast each morning was "tops". If you are going to be in this area, in my opinion, this is... More

Killarney was a bit crazy, with lots of tourists and a football match. Friars Glen offered respite from the crowds. It is off the main road but conveniently located. The setting is lovely and peaceful. Mary is very knowledgeable about the area and helped us plan our stay. The breakfasts were delicious and the rooms were clean and comfortable. We... More

Friars Glen is a fabulous B&B surrounded by spectacular scenery. John and Mary are the perfect hosts. They are both full of knowledge and are very keen to make the best of your stay in Killarney. Make sure you look out for the deer on the lawn at breakfast - just picture postcard. Thank you for an amazing time. The... More

We only stayed for one night, but the level of service was perfect. Met on arrival and offered unlimited insider information on the area, we were given so many options we didn't know what to do first! After missing breakfast the next morning, we were even offered sandwiches for our journey south. Couldn't recommend it highly enough :)

Mary, John and Brigid make Friars Glen a really wonderful place in which to spend a night or, as we did, a whole week. Our generous room had views to the bewitching mountain range which, like a fickle woman, changed moods often. The lovely comfortable bed, the bed linen and cleanliness of the home was most relaxing. Handy to have... More

We came here 2 & 1/2 years ago, and were thrilled to return. Our hosts treated our family to another fabulous stay in their hotel. We loved the views, the walks, the red deer and birds, the suggestions for excellent nearby dining, the peace and tranquillity of this setting off the beaten path of the town of Killarney, and the...

Great location with great hosts. Pristine B&B, superb breakfast, large rooms. This was the third B&B that we stayed in and it was far and away the best. I'm would recommend this place highly. Adjacent to the park and about 2 kilometers from the waterfall,

We stayed for 2 nights and really enjoyed ourselves. Great location, near Mucross house and Abby. Not far from downtown Killarney. The place was wonderful, room was very big with a large bathroom. The view from our room was outstanding, and the gardens on the property were beautiful. Bridget was very helpful and funny! Gave us some great suggestions of... More

We stayed at Friars Glen for 3 nights a few weeks ago. It was a perfect stay in every way. The room was clean, comfortable and spacious. The B & B is set in attractive gardens in a quiet country setting, but only a few minutes walk from a pub with great meals and a short drive to other eating... More

My daughters and mother and I stayed here July 4-6 and had a lovely stay. The rooms were very spacious and comfortable and we were thrilled to have a bathtub to soak in after a long day. It's a country manor set right alongside the national forest and offers beautiful views of the mountains. We saw deer every morning and... More
