“Gorgeous views and access to Killarney”
Reviewed June 13, 2014

We stayed for two nights and admired the view from our window every day. This is a great launching place for any trip associated with the Ring of Kerry and Killarney. The room was spotless, well organized and the breakfast was excellent. We agree with other reviewers that the bath was a bit small but many other B&B have similar situations. We enjoyed every minute. One of the best features was the ability to walk into town. I don't know how you could find a better lodging - exceeded our expectations in so many ways.

We truly felt like we were staying with friends while at the Chelmsford House. Pat was there to greet us upon arrival, even though we came later than our expected check in time. The next morning Louise re-booked our carriage tour that we had missed the day before and made sure we didn't miss out on this experience. Our room was super clean and both Pat and Louise made us feel right at home. What a wonderful stay we will surely be going back!

Stayed two nights I would like to thank Louise and Pat for a great stay. We were in room 4 what view of the Killarney National Park Mountains, it was breath taking. The room and house was magnificent although the bathroom was small we don't sleep there so no big deal. If you go you MUST have the Bailey's oatmeal the best oatmeal we have ever had. Tried to get the recipe but Louise wouldn't part with it lol. The walk was short to town 15 min there is a big hill but not a big deal nice to park the car and walk. Close to all the major attractions. We would stay again on our next trip.

Rooms were clean ,breakfast was great. I would probably not stay here again due to the bathroom size. Maybe crazy,but found it uncomfortable. I've been on lots of cruise ships, not one was this small. Walk possible from town as long as uphill after your night is ok. Took about 15 minutes. Wanted us to take her tours and was negative about our already booked when she had no experience with them. Good on street parking. Would try a different BnB next time due to the bathroom and walk to town.

My husband and I stayed here on the 3rd night of our Irish honeymoon. We called midday and Pat answered the phone and told us he would have a room waiting for us. We arrived and he suggested a place to eat in town which we had a delicious meal, dessert, drinks and entertainment. Then next morning we woke up to a delicious breakfast. I had the oatmeal drizzled with Bailey's which was amazing! Adorable couple, adorable house.

Pat and Luis are wonderful hosts who really care of their guests; more than happy to share tips, the rooms are lovely decorated, the view is beautiful, the living room cosy, the breakfast delicious! We had a great time despite the tiny bathroom :-)
