Louise and Pat are kind hosts, with a well-run operation. With a varied breakfast menu, you are asked to order the night before. We came in a bit late and they were very accommodating of our schedule. Check out is early (10:30), but when on holiday, it's nice to get out and see the next thing. They know Kerry and... More

We had a great time staying at Chelmsford House b&b. The location was great, close enough to the center, but far enough to be quiet and give some great views. The hosts were very pleasant and helpful and the breakfast tasty.

Louise and Pat were wonderful hosts. The breakfast was awesome! Chelmsford House was beautifully decorated with an incredible view of the mountains. During breakfast we spoke with Louise at length of where we were headed next. She had several very helpful suggestions and even helped us decide where our next destination should be. She was very accommodating and friendly.

We contacted Chelmsford House in February 2016 to book two double ensuite rooms for May 13 and 14, 2016. We were delighted to receive confirmation. Near the end of April 2016 we sent a final confirmation email to all of our pre-booked B&B's to avoid last minute confusion during our three weeks in Ireland. Chelmsford responded and again confirmed our... More

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
