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.

We stayed at Kathleens for one week and we enjoyed a lot the hospitality. Rooms were comfortable and clean. A good and plentiful breakfast was served from the menu and all the people there were very kind. Kathelen was very helpful to give us all the information about the wonderful places to visit in that area.

Kathleen was so helpful in giving great advice as to where to eat and the best sights to see. A real home from home experience and she went out of her way to accommodate us staying on for an extra night. We didn't want to leave the place !!

Kathleen was so wonderful and informative. She acted as not only a host but also a travel agent. You will not be disappointed staying here. Be careful to come in quiet if you come in late. ;) Downtown Carney was nice short drive. Very touristy area though. Definitely do ring of Kerry it's awesome.

Just returned from a week touring Ireland. My travel plans centered around staying at Kathleen's Inn with family and friends. This was my third time staying at Kathleen's. First in 1980 with my Mom and Aunt. Then in 2000 with my sisters and this time with my husband, children and family friends (18 in all). This is my favorite B&B... More
