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

Kathleen was a fund of information with regard to best places to visit, which routes to take, restaurants etc. in the area. It would make a wonderful base for those without own transport as it's possible to book trips to the various peninsulas both full days and one half day from the guest house where you are picked up and...

We stayed at Kathleen's for 2 nights. We had a terrific experience! Kathleen is a wealth of information about local attractions, places to eat etc and she is such a delight! We could not have been made to feel more welcomed if we had been visiting family! If you are looking for the best accommodations in Killarney, look no further... More

When traveling in and around Killarney, KATHLEEN'S is the place to stay. The location is convenient to all of the sightseeing places as well as the town. The B&B, from its grounds to the building are beautiful. When inside you'll find the place spotless, having large rooms and comfortable beds. It has a very nice dining room and even has... More

My husband and I stayed in Kathleen's for a couple nights and it was wonderful! She was so gracious and helpful. She gave us detailed maps and recommended some very fine places to eat. The room was wonderful! Her breakfast had so many choices to choose from. I would stay again in a heart beat!
