First of all, breakfast is amazing. Louise clearly loves to cook, and we (my father and I) enjoyed ordering off a menu of wonderful options each morning. Chelmsford House is on a small hill a few minutes' walk (8-10) from the city centre, affording breathtaking views of the mountains in Killarney National Park. Louise was helpful in planning a day...

Typical B&B. Mr. Griffin checked us in and very cordial and gracious. Visited some local establishments and returned and meet Mrs. Griffin. In chatting with Mrs. Griffin we told her that we had booked a tour for the Ring of Kerry and she became upset that we didn't book it through her. Her quote "you need to listen to you... More

I highly recommend this b&b, close to town and has lovely views if your room is facing the mountains. The breakfast was great and Louise was very kind. The room was nice and clean, probably the nicest one we've stayed in so far. Would highly recommend.

We arrived quite late to Chelmsford House and Pat was there to greet us. It's located out of the city center in almost a cute little neighborhood. It's one of the only B&B's in the immediate area. The views of the mountains are marvelous from here! We booked 2 rooms for 4 adults and both were very clean and comfortable.... More

The B&B across the road from Chelmsford House messed up our reservation and they sent us to Chelmsford House instead. Although they could not accommodate us that night, Louise, the owner, called all over town and was able to find us a room for the night. Their kindness and amazing customer service (to someone who wasn't even a customer) was... More

The house was beautiful and is a great location. This is a great place to stay- it's quiet and on a lovely street and is only a 10 minute walk into Killarney. Louise is a sweetheart and was so helpful with tips for seeing the area. The rooms were beautiful and everything was sparkling clean. The views from the bedrooms... More

Louises home is beautiful. The bed was very comfortable, the room was impeccibly clean and the breakfast was wonderful. The view of the national park from our window was stunning. Chelmsford House has fiber optic internet. First time I ever used fiber optic and it was FAST. My mother and I stayed two nights. Will definately stay here again and... More

Very nice owners offer a very nice house and breakfast. They even helped us find an alternate location for the first night that was already booked. The rate was very fair for the value. Room for the 3 of us was very nice, other than en suite bathroom was very small.

Our room was spotlessly clean and we had fantastic pancakes and scrambled eggs in the morning. The host is a incredible nice and open-minded lady. She asked about our tour and gave us specific information on what to do and to see. When we told her about our track she even told us to take a shortcut we would otherwise... More
