Reviewed July 29, 2013

We stayed at Dirren House for 2 nights. We received a very warm welcome from our host, Denis. The rooms were spotless and had all the facilities. Breakfast was excellent with plenty of food and a beautifully freshly cooked breakfast. It was certainly the best place we stayed since our arrival in Ireland and I would highly recommend it

Dirreen House ist a lovely, comfortable and clean B&B near Killarney. The full Irish breakfast was excellent and we loved the homemade scones! We stayed there 2 nights and we will definitely recommend this B&B!

Very nice place. Mary is a wonderful hostess, she gives you a warm welcome and make you feel at home. She's always there when you need something. Her homemade scones are delicious! As is her Irish breakfast. The place is clean and tidied. Just make sure when booking that you don't get the room in front of the road for it gets a bit noisy at day time.

Four of us stayed one night in two rooms--one double, one twin (we left Galway in the morning, and the next day were headed around the Ring of Kerry). Comfortable, clean rooms, a decent-sized shower with lots of hot water, beautiful dining room with gorgeous furniture. And the breakfast fantastic--creamy scrambled eggs with smoked salmon, or choice of "full Irish" with eggs and bacon and sausage. Mary was friendly and had great advice for us. Quiet location right on the road, and minutes from Killarney and the Ring of Kerry. I would highly recommend this B&B.

It is often difficult to dislodge the chocolate box and chintz cliches that come to mind when contemplating the beautiful lakes, spectacular mountains, ancient forests and remarkable heritage of the Kingdom of Kerry. The exquisite picture-perfect town of Killarney, home to Dirreen House, does little to dispel this notion.

A stay at this 4 star B&B is truly an experience to behold. From the very moment of our arrival we were treated rather more like "old friends" than new guests ... a very rare quality in
the hospitality industry today. Proprietor Mary Casey is an exceptional host, but then of course, this is her home. All of Mary's guests are drawn to Dirreen House by the warmth of her hospitality and authentic Irish welcome, where the service alone is an elaborate ceremony of almost forgotten rituals.

Dirreen House is conveniently located in a quiet location on the N22 main Killarney to Tralee road and less than 10 minutes from the bustling town centre of Killarney, with its vibrant shopping, intimate restaurants and old Irish pubs.

You will be welcomed with home baking on arrival, and there is ample parking at the front of the
property.There is a TV lounge and the house is surrounded by a perfectly manicured garden which is available to be enjoyed by all of her guests.

All five guest rooms are en-suite, each equipped with a TV and free WiFi. The bedrooms are stylish, with beautiful fabrics, pristine linen, tea and coffee making facilities and a plethora of other treats. With luxurious bathrooms filled with lashings of toiletries, soft robes and piles of oh-so-fluffy towels, you may never want to leave.

Mary's ambrosial breakfasts are served in the blissfully peaceful dining room and will send you on a voyage to gastronomic nirvana. The menu is extensive, cooked to perfection and served with a smile. Should you decide to whimsy away your time here it will not be wasted and Dirreen House will be embedded in your soul.

We stayed here for 2 nights in June with 2 of our friends whilst on a road-trip around Ireland. We stayed in 5 other 4* B&B's during the week with Dirreen House being the best!!

The house is gorgeous and so immaculately maintained - it really is a 'luxury' B&B with cream carpets throughout, fabulous antique furniture & chandeliers along with high quality luxury bedding & throws & even electric blankets!!!
The rooms all had TV's, tea & coffee making facilities, complimentary toiletries & fluffy bath towels!
There is a lovely lounge for guests to use & well kept gardens to the front & rear too. 

The owner Mary was a lovely lady who couldn't do enough for us, she showed us true hospitality & treated us like a relative. She was really helpful with giving us advice on the area too.
Her Irish breakfasts were faultless & cooked to perfection - can't rate them highly enough! 
The freshly baked scones, fruit loaf & bread were to die for too! Best breakfasts we have ever had! Mary even insisted we took the left over scones with us for afternoon treats whilst we drove the Ring of Kerry! Such a kind lady!

We cannot rate this place highly enough - luxury stay at an exceptionally reasonable price with a real home from home feel!
