“Best B and B in Ireland”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013

This is a top-notch B and B. My husband and I stayed there in August 2012 and the hostess Toni was extremely welcoming. The B and B is spotless and the rooms also spotless and very comfortable. The breakfast was also excellent - lots of choice and beautifully cooked. We had a considerably more pleasant stay here than at a 5 star hotel in Dublin. Thank you Toni!

Could not recommend this any higher. Beautifully set out, immaculate, and the hosts could not be any warmer and hospitable ( but respect your privacy too). To any one thinking of visiting Killarney there is only one place to stay. To Toni and Danny - thank you. Lisa (Australia)

Room Tip: All excellent

My wife and I spent 2 nights here with the wonderful hosts, Toni and Danny. We both cannot say enough nice things about how great their place is, how amazing both of them are, and what a perfect stay we had here.

We arrived after driving in from Cork. There was parking in front of the place with an easy to read sign. We were greeted by Danny, who showed us to our room. He was very nice, and was able to show us how everything worked and answered all our questions.

The room was perfect, and I almost felt guilty for paying so little for such nice accommodations. The room was spotless, the bathroom was large, with a great shower, very clean, and plenty of wonderful little touches everywhere.

We had a wonderful night there, and woke up to a wonderfully prepared breakfast that was very delicious, and kept us full and ready to tackle the Ring of Kerry.

We both cannot recommend this place enough. Toni and Danny are not only amazing hosts, but they are also very good tour guides. They are equipped with plenty of maps and local knowledge to guide to pretty much anywhere in the area.

Location is very close to the city centre, and an easy walk of only a few minutes to pubs, restaurants, shops, pretty much anything you would need while staying in Killarney. Toni and Danny are amazing hosts, that make you feel at home, and make you feel like family. It was almost as if I had been staying with an Aunt and Uncle that happened to live in Killarney. I hope we get to stay here again, and I really recommend Larkinley Lodge to anyone looking for accommodations in Killarney or the area.

My husband and I stayed 5 nights with Toni and Danny a few weeks ago, and truly loved it. The room was very nice, the location in Killarney is very good, and breakfast was delicious! As everyone else has stated, Toni is the sweetest, most caring host ever; she genuinely loves her guests and takes such good care of them! So so lovely, I cannot say enough good things about her and Danny as well. I highly recommend Larkinley Lodge!

Two notes: It is located very conveniently for walking into the town center, however Lewis Road is somewhat uphill, so guests with limited mobility should be aware if they are primarily traveling on foot. Also, we knew that check-in was from 4-6pm but had arrived by train to Killarney at 2:30pm. Since our rental car was not ready when promised, instead of picking it up and driving around the surrounding area until 4pm as we'd intended, we decided to drag our luggage through town (and up the previously mentioned hill that is Lewis Rd) to the B&B and ask if we could just leave the bags there early, but not actually check in, in case the room wasn't ready. We did not realize that the check-in policy meant that no one was actually present at all to let us in until 4pm. So we arrived over an hour early to a locked house and waited in the windy 40 degree cold until they arrived back. This is not a criticism at all, we still loved and highly recommend the B&B, it is just a good thing to know ahead of time! If we ever have the pleasure of visiting Killarney again, we'll absolutely book a room at Larkinley Lodge!

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 1, which is ground level at the front of the building. Very convenient for coming...

We just spent two nights at Larkinley Lodge and really enjoyed our time The breakfasts were fantastic and the recommendation to eat at Quinlans ( we did twice) was superb! The directions and advice for our day trips were extremely helpful. Perhaps the best part was time we spent talking to these wonderful hosts! We will be telling our friends and family about Larkinley Lodge!

It could not have been better. Rooms were spotless, hosts were great-great hospitality, great tour directors, and great ambassadors of Ireland. No complaints, would definitely return and am sure it would be like meeting up with old friends.
