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

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
