My family and I recently stayed at the Sika Lodge on a recent holiday in Ireland while we were in Killarney. This B&B is modern, clean and close to town. The rooms were very charming, although the bathroom could have had some better lighting. It was about a 15-minute walk into downtown Killarney and a very close drive to nearby... More

This fabulously run b and b is the only place to stay in the area. Immaculately run and clean and friendly. Great food. A very comfortable stopover. Wished we could've stayed longer. Serena and family are so welcoming.

When we think of our stay in Sika Lodge, we can't find anything that was less than perfect. We've spent a wonderful night and had a really delicious breakfast made by Serena with love :) Sika Lodge is a great B&B; beds were quite comfortable and rooms were as clean as a room can be. Yes, it is a bit... More

Serena is a perfect hostess: welcoming, charming, joyful, far-traveled and with great recommendations about restaurants and what to do in Killarney and around it. We felt really well looked-after. The room was spacious and nicely decorated with a suite-touch. For light-sleepers we want to mention that the Sika Lodge is located right on the street of the Ring of Kerry,... More

Thanks so much for such lovely praise, it was a complete pleasure to look after you while you visited Killarney. I enjoyed our chats every morning!! We have a fantastic location on the main Ring Of Kerry road, less than 5 minutes drive from the town centre. We are blessed to be located beside the National Park, so you have... More

The owner is wonderful - very welcoming, great recommendations and advice not only for Killarney but other places as well. The accommodation was very comfortable and modern. The downside is that it is on a main road through Killarney with the constant noise of traffic noise except for about 4 hours in the night.

Many thanks for your review! I am very disappointed to discover your stay with us was average as I enjoyed spending time with you, and chatting with you each morning. If I was made aware that you were unhappy with your room location I would have done everything in my power to move you to a quieter room. We have... More

We absolutely loved our weekend stay at Sika Lodge! It is a beautifully decorated B&B. Serena is a fabulous cook and hostess. She arranged our Gap of Dunloe tour. The location is great sitting right next to the Killarney national forest and on the Ring of Kerry Rd. I will definitely stay here again if ever in the area!

Our traveling family of 11 stayed here 1 night while in Ireland. It was the consensus of all that if we ever go again, we would probably just go here and stay at least most of the week. It is immaculate clean,within walking distance or very cheap cab of a very active downtown, and has the breakfast like no other... More

Our stay was great. Serena was a delight as a host and gourmet cook. The room was immaculate and seemed newly renovated. Her baby daughter, who is just starting to walk, is adorable. The walk to town was about 20 minutes. Serena arranged for us to take a bus tour of the Ring of Kerry, which was spectacular.

Very clean, extremely comfortable and a nice situation: pleasant walk into town through the park, and easy to get to and from by car. Serena and Alan could not have been more welcoming and helpful. The only minor downside is that in hot weather with the windows open there is a bit of road noise in the morning.
