What a gem of a location. Close but a world away from the crowds of Killarney. Right in the Killarney National Park is the lovely and gracious Manor B&B of Friars Glenn. The hosts, John and Mary, and Bridgette are warm and welcoming. The Breakfasts are excellent with a varied menu. Our room was large and clean and quiet. The... More

Countryside property in middle of Killarney.. Close to everything. Beautiful grounds and B&B is portion is separated from the family living area so you have the freedom of movement without worrying about disturbing the proprietor. Great room for sleeping - strong shower and incredible breakfast. Could not have asked for more.

Perfectly situated and a beautiful property, Friars Glen is a great place to stay when visiting Killarney. All those involved in hosting our extended family, a group of six, went out of their way to ensure that we were well-fed, comfortable, and had all we needed to maximize the benefits of our visit to the area. Everything in the area... More

Enjoyed our 2 night stay. Large clean room. Friendly, helpful staff. Brigette is a character! Choice of different breakfasts was appreciated! Close to Molly's pub which was good and the ring of Kerry which is an awesome drive.

Well, if I could give this B&B an overall rating of 10 instead of 5, I would.. We just returned from a 6 week trip around 12 countries, starting in Ireland. Unfortunately, no other accommodations even came closing to comparing with Friars Glen. If you're in Killarney, you must stay here! I would go back just to stay here! The... More

Friar’s Glen was a terrific place to stay for our visit to Killarney. It is a charming B & B in a beautiful setting. Our rooms were spacious and comfortable as well as spotlessly clean. Our hosts were most helpful and welcoming and the breakfast was superb. They even helped choose interesting stops on the next leg of our journey.... More

This place exceeds all ratings possible. The charm of the setting and house makes you feel like you are home, very comfortable. The owners and staff exceed the hospitality you never have a want or a need. We traveled there with our 10 year old daughter and they went above and beyond to make her feel at home and very... More

We had a lovely stay here in Killarney. Arrived late after touring the Ring of Kerry so we only had a short one-night stay, but all was great. We were greated by the owner upon arrival, who was extremely hospitable and helped us pick a nice place to eat nearby. Breakfast the next morning was nice, and then we were... More

Stayed here for 2 nights end of April with my boyfriend. From making the reservations throughout our stay, we had the most pleasant experience at Friars Glen, especially thanks to the wonderful host Mary. She gave us a warm welcome, took the time to walk us through useful things to do and not to do for our 2 days, since... More
