Highly rated and did not disappoint. Very good value and super breakfasts with some nice touches. Lots of good talk with the owners and a bottle of whiskey in the guest lounge - a bonus! much recomended

My daughter and I recently traveled to Ireland on a whirlwind trip. Sika Lodge was the perfect place to stay on our way to the Ring of Kerry. Serena and her charming family accommodated our late arrival and were very welcoming. I wish we could have stayed longer!

We stayed for one night and wished it was longer. After a very warm welcome, we were given a pre-prepped list of eateries and pubs which was really helpful and turned our one evening in Killarney into a very lovely memory. The room was spotless and very comfortable. The breakfast was pretty amazing with all the home-made treats and a... More

The Sika Lodge is lovely! We stayed there for 3 nights in September while on a 15 day trip to Ireland. The location is fabulous, borders the Killarney National Park. We walked into town every evening for dinner and it's just a perfect 20 minute walk. Serena, the owner, is just so sweet and welcoming. She spent lots of time... More

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
