We stayed there for one night in September 2013. The owner, Rosemary, is a very friendly and welcoming woman that makes you feel immediately like at home. The house is very big and furnished with vintage furnitures and very nice photos of the family all around. Rosemary and me talked a lot and she is a good listener and chatter.... More

I can't say enough positive things about this B&B. Rosemary was great! She gave us a room in the back of the house so it was very quiet and peaceful. The wifi was super strong as she had a router right outside our room. There's a very short walk into town and we both felt very safe in the neighborhood.... More

We spent two nights at Oaklawn and couldn't have been more pleased. Rosemary is a wonderful host and made us feel at home and welcome. She was a delight to chat with. Our room was very comfortable, and the breakfast was excellent and well-prepared. The location was just about perfect. We were able to walk into town easily for dinner... More

5 of us stayed at Oaklawn for a wedding we were attending in Killarney. What a spot!! We rang ahead of arrival as we needed somewhere to get changed before the wedding. Sure enough the owner made a room up for us hours ahead of schedule to help us out. The b&b itself is in a perfect location, a 2... More

Oaklawn is definitely a 4 star B&B and a perfect location to walk into town and enjoy the evening. Our group of 10 enjoyed the ambience and comfort of the B&B. IrishTourism, Tina O'Connor, booked this wonderful stay along with our 2 week whirlwind drive of Ireland. We also had IrishTourism book our driver and van. Wonderful stay at Oaklawn.

This B&B is a little difficult to find because it must be approached from what is more a private alley than a street. Once found it is worth the visit. The rooms are pristine, beds comfortable and service friendly and welcoming. The host offers free Wi Fi, but the plus on that is there is a reading room with big... More

Found the home to be very lovely. Our room was on the main floor and we found it to be quite spacious. Loved the litte area upstairs to relax and use the internet. Loved that we were able to walk into town, it was so close! Only downside was the access road to the house is off a VERY busy... More

Killarney has so many options.... this one should only be used if there is any other option. Very clean, but very minimal and much of the furniture broken and unkept. Breakfast was very minimal and burnt. The owner was very rude and abusive to such a degree that we had to change hotels... litterally running to get away. I have... More

Shh! Be very quiet when you stay here. The walls are very thin. We could hear all the bathroom sounds from the room next door. Having said that, the room though was clean, comfortable, had extra blankets and pillows as needed and had plenty of shower space. No washcloths though. I prefer a washcloth when showering. It is centrally located... More

I had read reviews about Oaklawn house so was reassured that it was a nice place. However, i was thoroughly dissappointed with the service in particular. Oaklawn itself is clean and within close proxomity to kilarney. However, i found the manner of the lady there very rude. Maybe we just caught her on a bad day but i assumed with... More
