“Everything we were looking for”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

We had a pleasant stay at Chelmsford House, just a quick-drive or short walk from downtown Killarney. There was a large, balconied room with a marvelous view, a comfortable sitting room for guests, a generous breakfast menu, good rates even in the busy summer season, and helpful, informative hosts. Everything we were looking for :)

We stayed 3 days in Killarney and we loved it.

Rooms were really comfortable, 11 delicious breakfast options and Louise & Pat gave us some really good tips.

We really recommend this Bed & Breakfast in Killarney!

Great location, quiet with parking, and just a short walk into town. Lovely room with great views over the lake and mountains.
Friendly owners, with lots of knowledge of the area and great tasty breakfast.
I would recommend this B&B and would stay there again.

We were made very welcome by Louise and Pat, nothing was too much trouble. The home and our room was spotless and well appointed. The breakfast menu was excellent as was the breakfast. There is a great lounge room to either read or watch TV. We would definitely say go there the only thing that was annoying was the squeaky floors.

Room Tip: We had a room at the back. It was very hot. Maybe request a front room to avoid afternoon sun and th...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

There were numerous things to like about this place: the house is tastefully decorated with a nice sitting room for guests, there was a beautiful view from the front garden and from our room, very comfortable beds, gracious hosts and a good breakfast. The room was small but bright and cheery, so unless you have a lot of luggage it wouldn't really matter.

However, the en suite bathroom was...well, it was just over 2 feet wide. It basically looked like a closet with a toilet on one end, the smallest sink I've ever seen in the middle (had to leave the door open so I could bend over to wash my face) and a shower just big enough to stand up in. We had a good laugh over it, but it is pretty much like using an airplane bathroom.

This B&B is easy to find due tue good signalisation and is situated in a nice and quiet quarter. 10 minutes walk to city center and near to National Park. Room is nice and clean, bathroom very very narrow. Free WiFi. Louse cares very lovely and makes a good breakfast after your's fancy.

The room was bright and to the Lake Side.We had the facilities we were looking for. 1. Hairdryer 2. Charge possibility in the bath for Mobile with Swiss Electrical Connector 3. WLAN.
We enjoyed to stay there because we could go on food to the city in a few minutes. We got a lot advices what to do and where to go.

Room Tip: The B+B is situated in a quiet area but Close to the city.
