“Perfect for a city getaway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2012

I had one of the best days of my life here: woke up in a calm, cozy room with a blue-sky, mountain view outside; grabbed an all-included Irish breakfast downstairs with the kind staff; took a <2 minute jog to get to the national park where you can see epic castle and mountain views; skyped with your friends over lunch b/c the connection actually works in the room (rare in Ireland); hired a bike for an afternoon ride along the Kerry trails to Muckross House and the gorgeous setting there; grabbed some local baked goods; then, watched the sun set over vantage point off the mission road jogging trails; then come back at dusk which is perfectly safe in killarney. So, overall, a comfortable, low-key hotel that's perfectly positioned for light outdoor activities.

Room Tip: 2nd floor is probably better than the 1st if you can swing it: doors open from the inside of the hou...

We stayed here as a group for the rally of the lakes, and all I can say is that we will defiantly be back next year! The rooms were lovely and we lived the fact that our cars were in a good carpark. The service was brilliant, they offered us breakfast very early as we were heading to the rally stages very early. Also only a short walk into Killarney town. Can't wait for next year !!

The location is fantastic - so close to the town centre and the National Park. Staff were helpful. The garden at the B&B is lovely and the breakfast quite nice and filling, however, we won't be staying again as the room was very musty and the bed felt damp. I think if the rooms were freshened up we would go back...a coat of paint, some new furnishings and an exhaust fan in the bathroom and this place would be wonderful. We were travelling with another couple and their room was exactly the same as ours.

Room Tip: we had rooms on the ground floor so maybe an upstairs one would be better.........

we had been booked to stay at Countess House down the road, but when we arrived we found a note saying that there had been an unexpected family emergency and we had been booked at the Gardens down the road. We were apprehensive at first, but then it turned out to be a really nice place. The road up to the property is charming and the parking lot is good sized. The room was nice enough. It was an older property, but I think that added to its charm. The breakfast room was very nice. High point was the warm and friendly employees. Low point was the wireless service. You had to go to the lobby to logon to your laptop and even then it was iffy! Oh, and bring your own loofa or washcloths - they dont provide washcloths here which we thought was weird!

Room Tip: Try for the top floor.

Myself and my friend spent a lovely, relaxing weekend in Killarney. We managed to find the Gardens B&B online and booked it for the three days we spent in Killarney. It is located approximately 2 minutes walk from the Town Centre and Killarney National Park. So, it is very accessible to the town itself, yet still has the feel of the countryside with its beautiful gardens. The rooms are clean and spacious and well worth the very reasonably price 35 euros per night which includes a very tasty full Irish breakfast. Excellent value. The staff are very friendly and always looking to assist you. The Husband and Wife owners are very nice, approachable people who were happy to assist us by providing information on local attractions. All in all, exceptional good value, great location, great breakfast and wonderful people. We would definitely recommend The Gardens B&B if you're intending a visit to Killarney. Enjoy.
