We stayed at Crystal Springs for only 1 night, but we would love to come back sometime. Our room was amazing with a huge bed and a rain shower. The breakfast was delicious in a lovely room with a beautiful view at the river. Eileen made us feel like we we're at home! If you're going to Killarney you should... More

Eileen was a wonderful hostess. The B&B is lovely, room was very comfortable, and the food was delicious. Eileen knows the area well and was very helpful with directions and recommendations. If I get a chance to return to the area this is where I will stay.

Staying at Crystal Springs was a definite highlight and to this day we talk about what a beautiful place it was. I'm grinning ear to ear reading some of these reviews now cause, even back... More

Stayed here over Paddy's weekend. As someone who has worked in hotels I know how difficult it is to get everything right and this place achieves that. The place is spotless and really well presented. Definitely a cut above the rest and some of the rooms decor is stunning. Also Eileen is extremely helpful. Breakfast was excellent with plenty of... More

Stayed in Crystal springs for a number of nights last year, Eileen was a buzzy bee on arrival 🐝. Decor and cleanliness were unremarkable but the overwhelming smell of urine in the room left a lot to be desired of what sort of antics went on in there previous to our arrival. There was also chips under my mothers bed.... More

I am so disappointed with this type of false message , All recommendations and local information is given only with the best of intentions for our guests that come to Killarney to enjoy the beautiful surroundings. The hangover and headache you said you arrived with , then its understandable why seight seeing was not your plan , With 20 Years... More

As stated already by many other guests, this is a lovely B and B...if they gave stars to B and Bs, this would surely be a 5-star. Eileen obviously manages with extreme TLC and wants her guests to be as happy and satisfied as possible. We had the Titanic (#6) with a view of the river. The bath was huge...it... More

This is what a 5 star looks like! Eileen is an accommodating and friendly hostess. We had a problem with our streetside room, and she immediately changed us to a river view. The breakfasts are served in a glass enclosed dining room with views of the river, and the food was delicious. We wanted to stay longer than our 3... More

Stayed one night, during my trip in Ireland, in the Titanic room. I had booked on booking.com, so I called to just make sure it would be ok to check in a bit later (around 8 pm) and they were very accommodating. On arrival the owner, Eileen, was incredibly nice and showed me around and explained about the breakfast menu.... More

We stayed at Crystal Springs for three nights recently, and I have to say that it was, hands down, my favorite stay of our trip in Ireland. Eileen made us feel completely pampered and right at home. From the beginning, she greeted us with lots of information about the Killarney area along with maps and restaurant recommendations, although it was... More

I had a wedding in Killarney last weekend and needed somewhere to rest my head and I am so lucky I chose this B&B. I was met by Eileen who was, for the entirety of my stay (2 nights) very friendly and accommodating. The location is ideal about a 4-5 minute taxi from the town center. The building was impeccably...
