Countess House
Ranked #115 of 143 Killarney B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 29, 2011

Location is fantastic, close to town centre and the National Park. There was a good selection at breakfast to get a good start to the day. Initially the room seemed great, nicely furnished and reasonably clean though on going to bed the sheets did not seem too clean and there was someone elses hair all over the pillows.The shower blocked up which I forgot to mention to the owner. Not major things I suppose but enough to try out another B&B next time.

Noreen and Orla were superb hostesses. Accommodations were cheerful, roomy, clean and comfy. Bountiful Irish breakfast awaited us in the morning. Ample parking. Located within walking distance of the town center. Look no further!

Some of the most awe-inspiring scenery is only a few kilometers from their door.

Countess House is not a traditional B&B as it isn't the host's home. it is tourists only.
Noreen was away when I arrived and her Mother was standing in for her.
The rooms were well furnished and clean. No tea/coffee making facilities in the room as standard. I was provided with them when I asked.
There wasn't any hot water at 7.30am, heater hadn't been switched on, apologies followed
but too late when you are up, dressed and at breakfast.
Had Noreen been there I expect things would have been better organised. I certainly hope so!

Booked a room for my girlfriend and her mother which was confirmed by the lady from the B&B, 5 days before they were due to stay.

When they got down there, there was NO booking, no rooms available, a foreign lady who was unable to do anything and a daughter of the owner who would not even come downstairs to speak with my girlfriend.

They were MOST UNHELPFUL.

My husband and I stayed in this B&B on a drive trip through Ireland. We spent the day at the Killarney Park and driving the ring of Kerry, when we stopped in, initially there was no one home, so we parked our car, left our info on the windshield and went into town for dinner. We came back to a written note from Noreen and her holding the door open for us. We were the only patrons in the house, she showed us to our room and preemptively had the electric blanket going on the bed. The rooms are very nice, very comfortable and cozy, a great nights sleep. Very close to the downtown, Main Street and many eateries along the way. Close to the roads to get out of town and to the parks as well. I'd recommend anyone else to stay here on a trip.
