If you wish to experience a traditional Irish welcome and hospitality then Kathleen's is your place! Kathleen is a superb hostess, she makes all her guests feel at home, calling everyone by their name and having time to spend with all her guests. Kathleen is a mine of information, there is nothing worth knowing about Kerry that she does not... More

Stayed here for 1 night July 2015 with family. Welcome from Kathleen was great and refreshing after staying in big corporate 4 and 5 star hotels on tour of Ireland. Beds were comfortable, shower worked well and the room was very clean. Breakfast was good too. Wifi was free and excellent, which pleased the kids! Kathleen was very helpful in... More

Kathleen is an excellent hostess: very outgoing and helpful in offering recommendations for dining and touring. Her home is beautiful and well located. Whereas we found Kathleen to be very friendly and helpful, others might find her intrusive and too chatty. On arrival, she provides an almost overwhelming array of information on the area, even before you've unloaded your bags... More

We stayed here for 3 nights whilst we travelled around to do all the touristy things in the area. We found it well positioned, just outside the town, for going into Killarney for an evening meal and for our day trips. The rooms were well appointed, there was a large choice for breakfast which was served quickly and Kathleen was... More

This location is just outside Killarney and while not quite walking distance, a very easy drive. The accommodations are nicely appointed and the rooms are spacious for Europe. The bathrooms are nice and updated with great showers. The best part of the stay is the knowledge and help that Kathleen brings. From what to do and see, where to eat... More

Kathleen opened the door and we immediately felt welcome and comfortable. We had been on the road from attraction to attraction and were in need of recharging. Kathleen's Country House was perfect. The guest room was lovely with comfortable bedding and space. We took advantage of her lovely library space and were able to unwind with views of the countryside... More

Kathleen is the perfect hostess and her knowledge of the area and recommendations on places to visit and local restaurants was invaluable to us as visitors from Australia. The premises are about a mile from central Killarney and are vey quite and peaceful and are an excellent base to explore south west Ireland. They are also spotlessly clean and very... More
