Kathleen's Country House was a lovely retreat from the busy streets of Killarney. Just a short drive from the center of town, the inn and its owner were most welcoming. Though she was quite busy, Kathleen took the time to find my husband, son and I a way into a completely sold out dinner establishment in town.

You will have a wonderful time or Kathleen will die trying. The property is great enough, but she is the ultimate hostess. She knows Ireland and Kerry especially backwards and forwards. We would go back in a minute. In spite of what Rick Steves says about Killarney, he couldn't be more wrong. This area is beautiful and lots to do.... More

This was our first visit with Kathleen, and it certainly won't be our last! What a treat! The Guesthouse is just gorgeous-spotlessly clean, quiet, and comfortable rooms with large bathrooms...the grounds and the views are extraordinary....Excellent base location to explore the whole area, and Kathleen is the perfect travel guide. She is such fun, a really lovely lady who enjoys... More

Ok, review long overdue but small baba makes doing anything thoughtful a bit difficult. Stayed here during Ring of Kerry Cycle in July for two nights. Despite all the frenetic activity during one of the busiest weekends in Killarney, Kathleen was so helpful and kind. At the time the baby was six weeks old and it was difficult finding a... More

I usually have somewhere to stay in Kerry, but due to the builders deciding to remove the toilet, The Boy took one look at my face (I am a girl, but most old) and booked Kathleen's. What a glorious place this is! Clean and comfortable rooms, fabulous bathrooms (up to my finicky North American standards) and a breakfast worth drooling... More

Kathleen's is a beautiful house with nice rooms, comfy beds, great shower, spring water, amazing artwork throughout the house. Sparkling clean and a reasonable price including a delicious breakfast with many choices. Great location and lovely gardens surround this spacious Country House. All of the above but what sets Kathleen's apart is Kathleen herself. Charming, kind, friendly and able to... More

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.
