19th Green Killarney
Ranked #75 of 143 Killarney B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 30, 2012

We went to Ireland purely to meet up with our daughter who was over on a business trip from the USA. When my husband booked this it was the only available accommodation close to her hotel. I couldn't believe how different it was from the reviews - I wonder what people are used to at home? The room was small, old fashioned and shabby and the en-suite shower room was about half the size of our en-suite shower room at home. The lighting was with low energy bulbs so the room and the en-suite were like caves. It was our own fault - the clue was in the name: this is definitely a guest house and, having only ever stayed in hotels before, it was a lesson. Very expensive accommodation for the standard - our son stayed at the Killeen House Hotel and had Bed & Breakfast for the same price as we had Room Only. Mind you, it was a relief to get out of the place each morning to go for breakfast in the town - the lounge and dining room was straight out of an old people's home! The only positive point is that it was clean.

wow! This Bed and Breakfast should be ranked #1. We felt at home. The family room was by far and away the largest room we've seen in Europe and the price was very economical. Breakfast was fantastic. We showed up and immediately they arranged a tee time for my husband the next morning. Everyone was so warm and welcoming and we would stay there again if ever we get back that way. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to my friends or anyone heading near the Killarney area. Also, go to Dingle and you can learn to surf at Inch beach.

We just left 19th Green and enjoyed our stay. Very friendly owners. Helpful for travel ideas. Nice to be able to enjoy the lounge at night instead of staying in your room. Great Breakfasts. Will stay here again. Plenty of room for 4 in our room. Thanks Freda and Family.

When we arrived we about waited ten mins at reception before a woman arrived to check us in, and i can say she was not too polite, seemed upset we interrupted her ! Any way second thing , not great that breakfast ends at 9.30 am ! This on a sunday morning when most people like a rest in, place was clean but needs updating, location ok, but too far to walk to town, has good parking, noise from adjoing bedroom was crazy(small party) rang to reception for help but no answer, glad i tried this spot but feel i would not return again, there are too many B&Bs in Killarney to settle for less.

Room Tip: We got room at back of house, was ok but overlooked, so front rooms might be better i think.

We had the pleasure of staying here during our trip to Ireland last week. The place was very comfortable and Freda was great with anything we needed. Her recommendations of local places to vist was fantastic. We traveled all over Ireland and this was our favorite place...even my teenage kids said it was their favorite (and everyone knows how hard it is to please a 15 and 18 year old). Would definitely stay there again when we return...

Room Tip: The family rooms are great...you have an extra bedroom for the kids

Another stay at The 19th Green and even better!! Lovely front facing room this time with a great balcony which we used well. Excellent golf and Freda went the extra mile leaving us breakfast to accomodate an early tee time!! Extra ad hoc pots of coffee and the usual helpful hints on the ongoing travels and places to eat. The !9th Green is the ideal location for Golfers and as other reviewers have stated, the base for your trip round the Ring of Kerry. We preferred to be just outside the town and a 40min walk away or €7-8 taxi fare. We will be back next year, if not before!!!! Thank you Freda and John and keep up the excellent work.:-) Paula &Tony Denvir.

Room Tip: Stairs only to the upstairs and therefore book a downstairs room for any mobility difficulties.
