Joan's B&B The Harp is conviently located for a short walk to Killarney. Joan is very friendly and helpful, the room was very clean and comfy, the breakfast was excellent and finely presented (she even had maple syrup from Canada). We ended up staying two nights. The price was right, too. You won't be disapointed!

This is by far the very best B&B during our 2 week trip in Ireland. Joan was a very gracious hostess. Her home is in a great location - a short and pleasant walk to town. Joan's home is immaculate, modern, comfortable and beautifully furnished with many 'decorator' touches. We especially loved the lounge area with teas, coffee, and cookies... More

Joan welcomed us right in, even though we arrived a little on the late side (after 7:00). She put on a pot of tea for us, gave us some suggestions for the area and showed us to our beautiful room. Everything has clearly been updated in the house as the bathrooms were impeccable (such pretty tile I took a photo... More

The hostess was welcoming and friendly. We enjoyed a large, clean room with a modern bathroom en suite, and an excellent "full Irish" breakfast--the best breakfast of our trip. The B&B is located in a quiet neighborhood, a short drive into the town of Killarney, and the price was reasonable. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND this B&B!! Donna and Tom

We stayed at 6 different B&Bs while traveling in Ireland and Scotland and Joan's breakfasts were the best. She was very helpful in advising us. The location was close enough to the center of Killarney to walk.

I feel genuinely bad about this review, because the host was incredibly kind. However, not only was the room small, but very unsanitary. Our sheets reeked of sweat and the room was crawling with bugs. We understand it could be possible that a hiker went to bed without showering, but the bed was still unpleasant to say the least. If...

This is your host Joan McCarthy from The Harp. I am shocked and appauled about this review. As you have already seen, I have no other bad report, of any sort. I find it extrememely hard to believe that there was BUGS in your room. However if this was the case then why did you not inform me at the... More

This bed and breakfast was by far the nicest we've stayed in. Joan and family were so lovely and thoughtful. Great value for money and good location! Very much worth every penny!
