This review is way overdue. Our host, Mary, was absolutely delightful. The house was perfect, the accommodations excellent, and the inclusive breakfast was out of this world. Wish we were able to stay 2 nights but we could not. The house is so close to the Killarney National Park which you can spend the entire day at. Mary and her... More

We have stayed a Friar's Glen four times over the last 20 years. This is my top Bed and Breakfast in Ireland. The country home is owned by a wonderful family.They provide a peaceful stay that is in walking distance of Killarney national park, and a 15 minute drive to Killarney., You can also walk to a Jarvey's hotel bar...

Friars Glen is a must stay in Killarney. John, Mary, and Bridget were amazingly helpful and accommodating. No need was left unanswered. They provided excellent advice on things to do. Huge rooms (#10) and bathrooms. They serve a continental AND a hot breakfast off the menu. You can't finish the Irish breakfast, too much! The grounds are in the National... More

This has to be one of the most beautiful BnBs i have stayed at. The grounds are amazing and could even see deers on their property. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. The resident dog is gorgeous. Our room was immaculate and the view outside our window was also beautiful. Highly recommended.

My wife and I stayed at this B&B for 3 nights in August 2016 and this was just perfect. The location is great, the B&B owners Mary and John and their assistant Bridget are extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfast is delicious and there is s lot of choices.

Friars Glen is an exceptional B&B: John and Mary are welcoming and knowledgeable hosts, the property is well-decorated, cozy and secluded (yet close to town), and the breakfasts sumptuous. Loved the fires in the sitting room as well as jogging through the nearby trails and watching deer in the backyard. Truly impeccable stay - very warm and welcoming. Would love... More

We decided to stay at this B&B half way through our Irish west coast holiday. The property is impeccably kept and is located in the national park. The ambience both in the house and outside is flawless. The breakfast is a true dining experience. Yet what makes this experience perfect is the hospitality and dedication of Bridgette and Jon. It's... More

Great place to stay. My husband and I have stayed here twice, two years apart. It is an excellent location just a little out of Killarney. As a result it is very quiet. Mary and John and staff are wonderful and very welcoming. They make you feel as if you are a part of their home. They are very helpful... More

My fiancé and I were traveling through Ireland in our honeymoon early August 2016 and we had booked the Friars Glen bed and breakfast based on all the wonderful reviews on trip advisor. All the reviews were spot on. The property was beautiful. Mary and John were the most wonderful hosts. We got a wonderful room overlooking the garden where... More
