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

I booked this accommodation via Hotels.com at an excellent offer only to be rang by the owner to say that she could not give me the accommodation at that price and went to great lenghts to describe how they didn't get their money for sometime for any bookings made in this way - not my problem. Basically I was told... 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

To review a B&B that is without fault, is very hard. To accommodate a guests every wish is the mark of a great hotelier. Our hostess did just that ... and more. My only caution to those considering booking here is to get up in the morning VERY hungry. The home made jams.yogurts, breads will satisfy most hungry people, but... More

Pauline is the most wonderful host, providing a gentle, relaxing and all round first class stay. The electric blanket went down a treat with the Missus! Thanks for your hospitality Pauline - we'll see you again!

My wife and I recently had 2 nights at the Killyliss Country House in Monaghan and enjoyed every second. Pauline has a gentle and welcoming approach and made us feel very much at home. From the pot of tea on arrival to the delight of an electric blanket and superb breakfast. Thank you Psuline - we'll be back.

Following a short flight and long drive from England it would be fair to say both I and my wife were suitably exhausted. On our arrival Pauline's welcome was comforting and simply wonderful, nothing was to much trouble and rather than us feel like outsiders she made both feel like VIP's. We had a family wedding to attend and had... More

Pauline is a wonderful hostess. She was there to greet us whenever we arrived but left us alone if we were relaxing in the upstairs parlor. She has great knowledge about the area and provided us with great directions and restaurant recommendations. We were in the area in search of distant relatives and she offered ideas to help in our...
