Very beautiful Setting. Large rooms and had a great breakfast. The owners and staff were great help and very accommodating. Large great room for relaxing or playing cards. Lots of breakfast choices and a nice fresh fruit and baked goods. walking distance to one restaurant but the rest were a little far. The bathroom had great pressure. Only issue is... More

Our family spent two nights at Friar's Glen in Killarney and had a wonderful experience. John and Mary were outstanding hosts and Bridget provided delicious breakfasts both mornings of our visit. The accommodations were spacious and the reception room / reading room was cozy. The grounds are beautifully kept and Sandy (golden retriever) is a nice addition to hominess feel... More

Set in Killarney National Park, the location is fantastic - a short walk from historical sites such as Muckross Abbey and Muckross Park, as well as natural sites such as Torc Waterfall. The B&B itself was clean, warm, and comfortable. We felt very welcomed by Mary, John and Brigid; we had a chat with Brigid every morning over breakfast, and... More

Welcomed with open arms by Mary, John, and Bridgid. They made us instantly feel like part of the family. Fire blazing, hot coffee and cake within the first 5 minutes. Red deer grazing out the windows with mountain views behind. Bridgid was very helpful with day trip planning and maps. Always had a warm smile during breakfast service and afternoon... More

My husband and I spent two nights at Friar's Glen in Killarney and had such fantastic experience. John and Mary were incredibly welcoming, Bridget provided great conversation both mornings, the breakfast was great, and the location was perfect (just far enough outside of town to feel secluded, but close enough to town to easily drive in for meals or tours)....

Traveled to Ireland as 2 couples, in our late twenties. We started our trip with 2 nights at Friar's Glen in Killarney. All I can say is that it was absolutely incredible. The B&B and both Mary and John are exactly what I envisioned when I began planning this trip nearly 9 months ago. The warmth and hospitality upon arrival,... More

Exceeded expectations. On beautiful land within the national park. Close enough to town to go for dinner however far enough away to get away from the tourist craziness and busses. Great breakfast and starting location to explore the peninsula and national park. They are a wealth of information on activities in the area.

In classic Killarney fashion, we passed a “jaunting car” on our way into the B&B, which is set on the edge of a national park. John’s a master at flowers which only added to the charming setting. The room was well decorated and spotless, and the bed was comfortable. Mary and Brigid offered a delightful omelette option for breakfast, with... More

The hosts were very helpful with giving recommendations about were to go hiking and where to have dinner, etc.. The place is not walking distance to the town center of Killarney but instead offers a great location within the national park, very quiet, surounded by nature. The breakfast is great and the breakfast room has a lovely view into the... More
