I can only agree with everyone who has already given The Invicta 5 stars (or circles). We arrived late, partly due to having a problem finding it. (We thought it was at Beaufort, but it is at Tomies, not far from The Gap of Dunloe and Kate Kearney's Cottage.) However Mary assured us it wasn't a problem and produced tea... More

We has booked a one-night stay at the Invicta while passing through Killarney. Unfortunately, when we arrived there had been a mix-up with the booking and they were full. Mary had already lined up another B&B (which was fantastic) close by and personally escorted us to meet the other owner. This was a very professional way to handle a mix-up... More

Situated in the quiet Tomies area near Killarney The Invicta is the ideal B&B for a rural stay. It is located about a hundred yards from a huge lake (Lough Leane) on one side and mountains on another. It is ideally located for touring ( Ring of Kerry, Dingle Peninsula, Gap of Dunloe, Etc.) or for local hiking, fishing (boats... More

We stayed at The Invicta for two nights in mid August and can highly recommend this charming B&B. Sean and Mary Sweeney are wonderful hosts and made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. Our room overlooked the lake and was comfortable and clean. Breakfast was delicious with plenty of choices available. Sean and Mary's knowledge of the local... More

Having booked the Invicta a year in advance of a friend's wedding we were incredibly upset that the owners had no recording of our booking and after one night stay asked us to leave the next day! The way they handled the booking error was incredibly unprofessional and implied that we as the customers were at fault. Sean in particular... More

If you want a quiet peaceful place to rest, fish, walk the Gap, or just take a quiet stroll, The Invicta is the place. Sean and Mary Sweeney make you feel at home and relaxed from the minute you arrive with coffee, tea, and small treats. You notice their Bed and Breakfast is absolutely clean and friendly. The rooms are... More

We stayed at The Invicta for 2 nights in late July 2014. We were warmly greeted by Sean and made to feel very welcome with tea and coffee and some freshly baked cakes. The B&B is right near Lough Leane and has beautiful views of the lake and the surrounding mountains. It turned out to be a perfect location for... More

We stayed at The Invicta for 2 nights in late June 2014. We originally were only going to stay for 1 night, but liked it so much we stayed for another. We found them on trip advisor and liked the location to the ring of Kerry and Killarney (about a 15 minute drive). This B&B is nestled between the mountains... More

We found this b&b by coincidence and we loved it from A to Z. It is located at 100m from the lake. You have very nice things to do around in the Nature and the owners of this b&b are fantastic. You will feel at home there. We had the best breakfast we tried in Ireland during our holidays. We... More
