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

Picked up at a bus stop 15minutes away by our host Pauline, we were given an amazing tour around the local area including local fishing areas, where to ride bicycles (supplied!) and local pubs/shops. I fell in love with their dogs and the fantastic view surrounding. She accommodated our vegan diet and gave us an amazing week in Ireland, it... More

Had a great time at Killyliss Country House. We stayed in the lodge which was perfect for a family. After traveling all over IR, UK, and Paris....hands down Pauline's Irish breakfast was the very best! Great homemade breads, granola, and jams. I will be missing the Irish bacon for a long time! Could not ask for better hospitality and superb... More

Eight months after our trip to Ireland and a brief stay at the Killyliss Country House we still talk about our hostess Pauline as through she was a treasured relative. Our stay was wonderful, Pauline made us feel welcomed and at home. The accommodations were lovely and the house was very clean. The breakfasts were delicious. Most of all, Pauline... More

The excellent offer that this lady refers to was an amount that would have worked out at approx £12 pp for bed and freshly prepared full Irish breakfast for 2 nights in a twin room and not a single room as booked . She made a reservation that was a mistake, was made aware of it and was given several... More

My husband and I stayed one night at Killyliss in late October as part of an ancestral trip to Co. Monaghan. Even though our reservation was made at the last minute, Pauline welcomed us warmly, and quickly did what needed to be done to prepare the room. The accommodation was very comfortable, and the breakfast excellent, served in an elegant... More
