Kathleen, the perfect hostess, welcomes you into her large B&B just outside the hustle and bustle of Killarney. Our room for 3 adults was large and perfectly appointed. The grounds of the property are groomed and relaxing and the cooked to order breakfasts were delicious. The location is perfect for day trips to the regions many golf courses while a... More

I stopped off here during a solo motorcycle tour of Ireland. Friendly welcome and Kathleen has lots of advice on what to see in the area. TomTom satnav takes you to a different location so best to check before riding around in circles like I did (Kathleen said she already knew this, which was a bit frustrating as this could... More

To say our stay (non stay) was a unique experience is an understatement. From the moment we arrived I never felt so unwelcome, I had planned to stay there with my mother and young daughter but ended up leaving after 2 hours. when we arrived Kathleen failed to greet us at first, she was more interested in cleaning the finger...

Kathleen's Country House is superb. Kathleen, the owner takes first class care of all of her guests. We stayed a week with her back in 2006 and couldn't wait for our return trip this past week. Killarney is a great town and Kathleen's is a super place to base yourselves at whether traveling to the Ring of Kerry, the Dingle... More

Kathleen makes everyone feel very welcome and is very helpful with giving directions for places to go and see, things to do and recommendations for places to eat in Killarney. Good to know when visiting a new town/area. Her Country House is spotlessly clean and the bedrooms are very nicely decorated with lovely bedlinen and furnishings. She welcomes single people... More

I stayed at Kathleen's country house for two nights with my 5 month old baby. They were extremely accomodating and made us feel very comfortable. All the staff were very friendly and I loved the breakfast. The attention to detail in every aspect of this B&b is amazing....the furnishings and the paintings makes for the most relaxing atmosphere. I would... More

We returned to this Bed & Breakfast almost 5 years to the day we first stayed there to find it just as lovely as our first visit. Kathleen's offers the best of what hotels and B & B's can offer. Well-appointed and tucked but a short distance away from the bustling town of Killarney, guests feel as if they are... More

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
