We were able to stay two nights and thoroughly enjoyed Oaklawn. Concerned initially that there had been no recent reviews but after meeting our host, she was full of charm and very accommodating. She treats you to a full breakfast and lively conversation, inquiring about your day. Ask her about her letter from Pres.Reagan.

When we arrived in Killarney we came from a different direction and just missed it as the access road looks like a driveway so we turned around and bam it was there. Oaklawn House is tucked back in on a keyhole type of street so it is very quiet yet just a short walk to the City Center of Killarney.... More

6 Jul Beautiful B&B with a fabulous cooked to order breakfast. Hospitality is the byword at Oaklawn. Close to downtown, yet tucked snugly out of the way off the main road. Can be challenging to find, but worth the hunt for this treasure. Hint, the side road to the B&B is located directly across the road from the Amber petrol... More

This B & B presents well and yet our room was a bit dated. Spacious and clean and quiet. Ensuite.. Short walk to town so perfect to park the car and take a horse and buggy! Breakfast was good and hostess was friendly and chatty.

We were very early when we arrived but were told we could leave our luggage at the B&B until check in time. When we asked to use the bathroom before we went out into Killarney, the lady-of-the-house told us she only had bathrooms in the guest rooms and they were all taken and not leaving until 11am. We could use... More

Enjoyed our stay with Rosemary so very much. Our room was very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent and I would certainly stay there again. Amazed to see palm trees in Ireland, but there they were in Rosemary's garden!

Stayed here as we wanted an extra night after a wedding. Lovely warm welcome and as we arrived early rosemary offered to take our bags until the room was ready. She showed us the rooms however no information was given as to check out time and payments. Room was clean apart from stains at the end of the bed sheets... More

Stayed at oaklawn nice property near the town bit dated but acceptable. Got a knock on the door at 10am without being given notice that we had to check out by that time. Was all a bit rushed to be honest. Nice lady runs it bit stand offish at first but nice once you get talking to her. The 10am... More

We stayed at the Oaklawn B&B and had a wonderful time. The property is very clean and well maintained. The best part is that it is very close to town so it's a short walk to shopping, pubs and sightseeing. If you're driving it's a short drive to Ross Castle and the nearby lakes. Our room was nice, small bathroom... More

I was happy to stay again at the Oaklawn House in Killarney. The B&B is just as I remembered, which is a great thing. The B&B is located just a short stroll to the city centre and all the shops, pubs and restaurants in Killarney. It's a short drive to Killarney National Park and Ross Castle, and an excellent place... More
