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

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
