Wonderful breakfast, beautiful location; Brigid will give you good directions and great ideas for places to explore. The room was huge, and comfortable. There is even a drying room for boots, in case, like I did, you step in a bog. Loads of hiking nearby, and excellent restaurants. Lovely place, we intend to go back.

My wife and I stayed here with my parents in June. When we pulled up, we had to do a double take on how much it would cost as it really looked to be an exclusive and costly B&B. We had such a nice visit and enjoyed the local park and a restaurant up the street. We enjoyed a nice... More

The property is in a beautiful location and is very nicely cared for. Mary was so warm and welcoming that it was a pleasure to be at Friars Glen. The breakfast room décor is charming, the breakfast is good quality with lots of options, and the view from the breakfast room is beautiful. The room was spacious and comfortable. Friars... More

We stayed 3 nights at this B&B and it was lovely. It was our first time staying in a B&B (on the trip and together) and it was the perfect way to start. The owners were so incredibly sweet and accommodating. We arrived fairly late because we drove from Dublin and they were waiting to show us our room and... More

The B&B is conviently located in the center of Killarney, minutes away from many landmarks such as Muckross House, Gap of Dunloe, Ross Castel, and being in the middle of the Killarney National Park couldn't hurt either. Planning your trip around "The Ring of Kerry" and don't know your way around it? No worries, Mary and Bridgett will be more... More

We had 3 beautiful days at Friars Glen. From our arrival when we spotted deer eating grass in the near by field every thing was perfect. On arrival we were greeted with tea and cake in the cosy lounge room. Our room was a great size and very comfortable bed. The owners and staff are wonderful and helped us plan... More

Five of us stayed at Friar's Glen for two nights in October. We should have planned to be there a week! Everything was perfect; the food, the surroundings, the help in planning activities- everything was just what you would hope for. If we should ever travel again in Ireland, staying with John and Mary will be a must do.

We stayed here with two other couples for two nights. The house and grounds were even better than what the Friar's Glen website pictured. We were made to feel very welcomed from the moment we arrived. John and Mary were a wealth of knowledge of the surrounding area and the Ring of Kerry. The breakfasts were wonderful and was matched...

We had the opportunity to stay at this superb establishment for 4 nights. We arrived as guests and left as friends. John and Mary gave us the warmest of welcomes with tea and cake before showing us to our exquisite rooms with lovely views of the gardens and surrounds. We had the privilege of enjoying delicious breakfasts each morning while... More

We happened to arrive at Friars Glen as the stags were "in season" and they were bugling to one another from all corners of this beautiful property-it was as though we were in a concert thrown by mother nature...add to that a stag walking by our window while eating our breakfast-did they set this all up in advance? Now throw... More
