Spent 2 wonderful days in Killarney last June on our short trip to Ireland. Excellent B&B, the best breakfast we had so far. Definitely recommend the brown bread (homemade, freshly made, wonderful!). Owner gives really good advice on things to do in Killarney and how to organize hikes in Gap of Dunlow without having to join one of the expensive... More

I can't say enough good things about Joan. We signed up for 2 nights and because of a medical emergency we stayed an extra night. Joan was magnificent, she really cared and was not just going through the motions. She arranged for medical care to the point of having a doctor come to the house. I believe if she didn't... More

The owner was very nice, the B&B was very nice and clean, breakfast was excellent. One little glitch - our room was pretty small and required turn signals for us to navigate. I think we just ended up on the "short end of the stick", as it seemed that other rooms were larger. We were only there for one night,... More

Four of us stayed at The Harp and what a brilliant place it is. Nothing was too much trouble for Joan. She is such a lovely lady and made us feel like one of the family. The lounge was so comfortable with recliner sofas and plenty of tea, coffee and biscuits. The bedroom was spacious and a fabulous shower in... More

This B & B is very quiet and very clean. The breakfast was delicious. The owner and her daughter are very accommodating and are very engaging. I highly recommend this B & B. The location is within a short walk to Main Street with it's shops and restaurants.

The Harp is a larger B&B with about seven rooms. We booked a "twin or double room" and unfortunate got a twin room as a couple, which was not specious but very clean with nice and modern furniture. The shower was a wet room. There was also a dressing table with a mirror at the wall. I got a peak... More

Perfect bed and breakfast in a great location - 10 mins walk into the centre of town and the national park in the other direction. Joan was very welcoming and the breakfasts were brilliant we stayed for 6 nights planned around a family wedding, this was great value for money and we probably paid as much as others did for...

Stayed here last weekend for a wedding on nearby. There were three of us staying two nights and we most certainly owe this place a good review as the service and hospitality we received from the owner was superb. The room was spotless, the shower was excellent, the bed was comfy and anything we asked for was provided. We came... More

Really enjoyed staying here for two nights. Joan is very friendly as is her young assistant Claire. A great breakfast with many choices of food including smoked salmon and pancakes. Free wi-fi although reception in the rooms not great. Would definitely stay again.

My wife and I were 'walk in customers' as we choose to travel without fixed plans. The Harp was a great find. Joan was extremely friendly, and the room had everything we needed. There was a lovely lounge available to guests, with teas and coffees, and a selection of biscuits. The breakfast was probably the best we had in 12... More
