Mary and her husband are the most genuinly kind hosts I have ever encountered in all of my travels. My Mom and I felt right at home in their lovely B&B. Mary gave us a menu in the evening for breakfast choices the next day and then cooked our breakfast at our time of choice and served it to us... More

We (GF and I) were on the road with no pre bookings, just arrive and hope for the best with landing a good place to stay. I had walked into 3 BnB's prior to arrive at Elyod House. nothing appealed to me so we continued on our way. Driving around we noticed this place, pulled in and knocked on the... More

Mr. and Mrs. Doyle made my daughter and I feel very at home. Our room was large and very comfortable. Mrs. Doyle cooked us a lovely breakfast each morning which we enjoyed in their extremely nice dining room. Elyod House B & B is convienently located to Killarney with just a 10 minute walk . we loved it.

I highly recommend staying at the Elyod House. Clean rooms, tasty breakfasts and lovely hosts! My friend and I stayed a couple nights and very much enjoyed our time. It is an easy walk to town, or a quick drive. Also a short drive to beautiful Ross castle. We found that Mary was always available with with tips and information... More

My boyfriend and I were supposed to stay at another B&B in Killarney, and when our plane touched down in Ireland, we were informed the pipes had burst and we couldn't stay there. Mary & Derry took us in at incredibly late notice, and gave us the warmest welcome (as did their beautiful lab Ruby). The room was spacious and... More

My wife and I recently spent 3 nights at the Elyod House B&B and had only one regret -- that we couldn't stay a few more nights! Mary Doyle and her family (including their yellow Lab "Ruby") made us feel so comfortable, it was like visiting old friends. In addition to the clean, quiet, and comfortable room, we highly recommend... More

We had an amazing experience with Mary and her family at Elyod House. My boyfriend and I spent 3 nights there while visiting Killarney and it was most definitely our favorite spot we stayed during our 14 day trip to Ireland. The location was perfect, 5-10 minute walk to downtown or to Ross castle. We were able to rent bikes... More

We stayed two nights at Elyod House. We had our two young adult daughters with us, so we booked two rooms. Elyod House is the BEST bed and breakfast we have stayed in during our 17 day trip. Beautiful setting, warm and welcoming host family, delicious breakfast (with many choices), and comfortable accommodations. A slight downside was trouble with the... More

We spent three night in Elyod House and were absolutely satisfied by the warm and highly professional reception by Mary Doyle and her family. The house is located in a strategic position, at walking distance from downtown, but far enough to be quiet in the night. Our room was really confortable and we enjoyed breakfasts, always served timely and kindly.... More
