We stayed one night on our way north to Galway. We found Killorglin and the Riverside house to be a nice stop along the way. Breakfast and coffee were excellent with a great view of the river from the dining room. Thank you for the hospitality. We enjoyed our brief stay.

The Riverside House provided clean, comfortable, very reasonably priced accommodations, a lovely breakfast, and sincere and gracious communication with me when I stopped in for one night without a reservation. If you're looking for the Hilton, this isn't it. It's a family run, in-home B&B with no frills clean, comfortable rooms. Was it perfect? No-water swirled around my feet while... More

If you get a view of the river at breakfast then this is a great location. In all other respects this B&B was not great. The room was musty, the breakfast (scrambled eggs swimming in liquid, super salty smoked bacon) poor and tea-making facilities mean of spirit. To top it off the hostess had a tip jar at the door!...

We stayed with Geraldine for 4 nights and found her bnb to be in a lovely quiet yet handy location. Our room (& the dining room) overlooked the river laune & was very comfortable & clean. Geraldine gave us excellent breakfasts with lots of choice as well as good info on local day trips. The bunkers pub nearby was friendly... More

The house is located in a prime location in Killorglin, just a two minute walk from the center of town. Breathtaking view of a beautiful river with a scenic walk along the river to a nearby lake. The hosts were excellent and very friendly, they could not have been more helpful in accommodating my family's needs and gave us many... More

I am flabbergasted by the positive reviews of this B&B. Are these people describing the same place i have been? Only the 'terrible' reviews mirror my experiences.... as this place was indeed terrible (except for the view and the convenient location near town). Outdated rooms and furniture, very small bed, not clean at all (empty sigarette package behind the bin),... More

Mr. and Mrs. Mangan were helpful and accommodating. The room was comfortable and spacious...very clean. Breakfast was delicious and there were many choices for hot breakfast, as well as cold cereal, fruit, and juice. Grocery store, bank, and restaurants within easy walking distance...Thanks for a great stay!

We had a fantastic time staying at the riverside house. The hosts were both wonderful and extremely helpful. My father is vegan so the hostess went out of her way to accommodate the breakfast so that it for his dietary needs and it was simply charming of her to do so! The room was clean, comfortable beds and with a... More

This home is right on the water with beautiful views. The rooms were clean and spacious. We did not want to leave. The owners were friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was great, with a variety of choices.

Instead of the planned two nights we stayed a week at the Riverside house and found it a very pleasant place: very friendly and helpful hosts, organising boat trips, mountain guides, whatever you need as guests, comfortable rooms, an excellent variety of choices for breakfast, a nice garden with a beautiful view of the river and the mountains. Just great!
