A truly welcoming experience with wonderful Irish hospitality from Kathleen. Great local advice and Kathleen made you feel like a long lost friend. Beautifully appointed rooms clean and spacious, nothing was too much trouble.

My husband and I stayed four nights at this wonderful B&B. We had a car so we were able to drive (day trips) to the Ring of Kerry and Dingle Peninsula. The town of Killarney was adorable with fun pubs and excellent restaurants (recommendations by Kathleen.) Ross Castle, St. Mary's Cathedral and Ireland's first established National Park were within walking... More

Kathleen is a very friendly lady who likes to help her clients see the most of the beautiful city and gorgeous surrounding. The bed was very comfortable, with a quilt and two sheets(rare in Ireland)instead of a thick duvet. Nestled in a scenic corner of the city, but with a peaceful country feel. Killarney has so much in the way... More

We missed the personal touch at this B&B compared to our other stays. We didn't have any interaction with Kathleen until we were checking out, so we were on our own for planning our time and where to eat, etc. Also--it is a bit out of town, al;though a lovely property.

My self and my husband were only in Kerry for one night. So I wasn't too bothered by where we stayed, but when we entered the driveway I was very impressed. Great kerb appeal, a lovely house with a beautiful garden. Kathleen herself greeted us at the door. It was like coming home and having your mum waiting for you.... More

We had a great stay at Kathleen's. She was so friendly and helpful, and she was even gracious enough to get breakfast for us when we came out after the kitchen had closed. The house is very nice, and we had a good room at the end of the hall, which she said we could close off so our girls... More

Pre-booked this as our first nites stay in Ireland. We were a bit late in arriving, but Kathleen was very accommodating. We ended up staying a 2nd nite due to car issues and Kathleen was able to find space for us and get us lined up with a car repair place. She is a wealth of information about the Killarney... More

Kathleen welcomes all her guests as though they are part of the family. As a single person travelling alone, this personal touch made all the difference. Kathleen has a wealth of information about Killarney and the surrounding areas and recommended the most delightful places to visit or enjoy an evening meal. The room, delicious breakfast and Kathleen herself made this... More

This was the best B&B we stayed at in Ireland. My parents and I thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay in this beautifully maintained property - gorgeous artwork throughout and very spacious rooms. Breakfast was delicious and enjoyed in the lovely dining room overlooking the gardens. Kathleen is a great host and made a number of helpful recommendations.

Kathleen is such a gracious host and an incredible source of information about the Killarney area. While the hustle and bustle of Killarney's tourist scene got to us a bit, Kathleens Country House remained a nice, quiet place for our family to stay. If you're planning a trip to Killarney, I highly recommend staying at Kathleen's.
