Kathleens Country House was a wonderful, relaxing place to rest our travel weary bones! The first night we arrived very late due to poor planning on our part. Kathleen stayed up late for us and was most kind to do so. We found clean, comfy rooms and slept well. When we arose each morning - we stayed two nights -... More

We stayed 2 nights in this B&B just outside Killarney. Position is good for visiting the National Park. The garden is nice, while the breakfast is average. The owner Kathleen pretends to give a lot of information but actually speaks too much. A bit more of understatement would not hurt.

We stayed at Kathleens for one week and we enjoyed a lot the hospitality. Rooms were comfortable and clean. A good and plentiful breakfast was served from the menu and all the people there were very kind. Kathelen was very helpful to give us all the information about the wonderful places to visit in that area.

Kathleen was so helpful in giving great advice as to where to eat and the best sights to see. A real home from home experience and she went out of her way to accommodate us staying on for an extra night. We didn't want to leave the place !!

Kathleen was so wonderful and informative. She acted as not only a host but also a travel agent. You will not be disappointed staying here. Be careful to come in quiet if you come in late. ;) Downtown Carney was nice short drive. Very touristy area though. Definitely do ring of Kerry it's awesome.

Just returned from a week touring Ireland. My travel plans centered around staying at Kathleen's Inn with family and friends. This was my third time staying at Kathleen's. First in 1980 with my Mom and Aunt. Then in 2000 with my sisters and this time with my husband, children and family friends (18 in all). This is my favorite B&B... More

Booked this hotel after reading great reviews online.....and we were not disappointed. Kathleen made us feel very welcome from the first moment, very knowledgable about the area, recommended some great places to 'chill' and eat, won't forget The Smoke House restaurant,very chilled. The hotel is set in its own grounds, plenty of off road parking, we travelled by motorbike, so... More

Our room was very nice and very clean. The house was quiet and had very nice sitting areas. Kathleen was very hospitable and very knowledgeable of the area but... Kathleen definitely has her own agenda of what she wants you to see while in Ireland. Her advice is good and we are so glad we took it in several instances.... More

Kathleen is a wonderful person with a wealth of knowledge to share. She recommended all of the best places to see and eat. She even told us where to go to avoid the more "touristy" areas. The grounds were beautiful, and the rooms are good. The only complaint I had was the fluctuation in water temp/pressure when taking a shower.... More

Lovely home. Beautiful well appointed rooms. Amazing library and sitting areas, with peaceful views. Kathleen and staff friendly and helpful. A little out of town, but not too far, but best to have a car. Has car parking facilities. We had trouble with showers in our rooms downstairs. Still clean and well appointed and lovely outlook, but near the kitchen... More
