We were greeted by Kathleen who took the time to find out our first names and welcomed us at breakfast the next morning using our names. Breakfast was best quality bacon, black pudding and home made jams. Nothing was too much trouble. Room was large and the bathroom very big and comfortable.

Wonderful view, clean room and the hospitality is great. The location is perfect. It is very calm so you feel like you are a different planet. Definitely worth every cent. The owner of the house was very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this place.

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights last week during our trip to Ireland. The building is charming and incredibly well maintained with updated facilities. Very clean and quiet with comfortable beds.

Stayed here for three nights last week for work and was very pleased. The room and ensuite though not huge was very nice and very clean. The guesthouse is located about a mile from town so you need a car. A taxi is only a few euro if you're going for a drink or two. The price I felt was... More

We were traveling through Ireland and staying at hotels. Kathleen's Country House was the one exception and we are very happy it was. We were greeted by Kathleen herself. She made us feel welcome and gave us loads of information on things to do in the area. The room and the entire building was spotlessly clear. We even asked one... More

Kathleen herself greets you in the reception area and is wonderful to chat with. She not only remembered our names the next morning during breakfast service, but we noticed that she greeted every single other person, even the children by name. I want to give the B&B full marks, but in truth the stay was not perfect. We had room... More

Kathleen's country house is beautifully furnished, decorated and spotlessly clean, the gardens around it are beautiful. The breakfast was amazing with excellent service in the lovely breakfast room. Kathleen the owner was so friendly, welcoming and very helpful with places to visit. We would highly recommend Kathleen's and would definitely go back there.

You stay at Kathleen's for Kathleen. You are greeted by her upon arrival and whether you stay for 1 or several evenings, you have a new friend. She knows everyone in town and almost every taxi driver. She is the original Trip Advisor for Killarney. It is like staying with a good relative. I toured with my mother (72yo) in... More

Kathleen's Country House was the peaceful refuge which we needed after our tiring trip around Europe. We were greeted with a warm welcome ,given a very clean and comfy room and helpful information on what to do when visiting Killarney National Park. I would recommend this place to anyone traveling through the area.
