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

This is a super bed and breakfast, were nothing is too much trouble! We were a party of 7, ranging in age from 7 to 77 and we all had an amazing time. Nothing is too much trouble and if we were revisiting Monaghan, we would head straight here. The house is clean and full of interesting books and bits... More

We had a wonderful stay at Killyliss! Pauline was the ultimate host and so welcoming. Her attention to detail in everything from the room to the delicious breakfast was the best. This was our first stop in Ireland and our experience at Killyliss was a great start to a dream vacation. Thank you, Pauline, for everything including the written directions... More

Myself and my boyfriend stayed with Pauline last Friday - and the only thing I found fault with is my booking - we should have stayed an extra night instead of moving on. The welcome, room, breakfast - pretty much everything was wonderful. Pauline was very welcoming, the house extremely comfortable and clean..The breakfast was fantastic - it really set... More

We stayed with Pauline for 6 days and had the most wonderful experience. She could not have done more to make us welcome. Our accommodation was lovely and the breakfasts out of this world. Lots of advice given about places to eat and see. Please visit Pauline at her lovely home and I know you will not be disappointed.

My family stayed only one night at Killyliss House and wished we had stayed longer. We had three separate rooms and all were wonderful--very clean, well decorated, and had really comfortable beds. Breakfast was great, with many delicious homemade items. Pauline, the owner, was especially grand. She gave us a dinner recommendation that we really enjoyed and was extremely helpful... More
