I chose to stay at Killyliss for four nights while working in the area based on the excellent reviews i saw on Tripadvisor and my experience here has been absolutely fabulous. Pauline greeted me on arrival with tea and beautiful lemon cake which she brought to my room as i settled in. The room was very comfortable with a lovely... More

I was looking for a place to stay on route from Boyle to Belfast preferably before crossing the border so I could pay in euro. I usually wouldn't look for a place in the country but the reviews on Killyliss stood out. So out of curiosity and the appeal of the good value I booked it. The minute we walked... More

Our room was luxurious and so comfortable and the breakfasts were amazing. Pauline was wonderful, going out of her way to help us with everything. She was a great communicator even before we...

There's not much more that can be said about this place, as all that can be said has been said and it's all true. A gem of a place and hostess Pauline is amazing and very warm and welcoming. You're at ease as soon as you step in the door. She is a wealth of information about the local area.... More

Just spent a night with Pauline. What a fabulous experience. The really warm welcome, friendliness and beautiful breakfast. Would really have welcomed a second night of feeling pampered. Next time hopefully. Would really recommend a stay here. Peggy

We stayed for two nights and needed two separate rooms for the three of us. Pauline spoiled us for the rest of our trip. Everywhere we stayed after that we compared to her B&B and we found them wanting. The house is on a quiet country lane which is perfect for taking walks on and the nights are very quiet,... More

My husband and my 8 yr old son spent two nights at Killyliss. I did a little research before I booked as I am also in the catering business and I would be particular as to where my son would stay. I was not disappointed in the feed back from both my son and my husband. Pauline looked after them... More
