Spent two nights in this centrally located B&B. Third floor room was quiet and comfortable. Breakfast was typical and cooked to order. Check in is smooth; check out as well. Parking is available and close (either on the street or in the nearby car parks). The downstairs pub offered live Irish music each night. Rate was reasonable for the area.... More

An excellent hotel with all the staff to match also. Rooms were clean and modern. Live music on every night (and not just a one man band). The breakfast was excellent also with a choice of mixing what you fancied, nothing was no trouble to the staff they was very helpful. We will be back next year. Thank You.

Great pub to stay to experience Irish pub life. Sitting outside having a drink and talking to all who passed by was very pleasant way to rest your weary feet after a day sightseeing.

No negatives here except that internet was spotty in our room(had to stand in hallway). Third floor was very quiet considering the band playing below. Great option for a downtown bar-hop. Would stay again.

Good room and friendly staff with a great little bar (or two) downstairs. Well located within easy walking distance of everything in Killarney town. No parking, but car can be left in one of two nearby public parking areas which are safe. We would stay here again.

The location is great, right in the strip and a very short walk to the train station and a public pay parking lot. The pub downstairs is a good spot uf looking to grab an easy drink. Staff was pleasant and its hard to beat the price. Best deal in Killarney. If you are fit, give the 35 mile gap... More
