Stayed at this wonderful B&B for 3 days in mid-October and couldn't have been more pleased.
It is not a hotel (no pool or spa or exercise room, etc), but rather a home away from home.
Very low key and quiet 10 room house in the perfect setting just outside Killarney Natl. Pk. Our room was large, modern, and clean, with a wonderful view of country side. Breakfast was included and well done each day. For the price you could not do any better. The late afternoon tea and cake near the fireplace was the perfect break after a day of exploring the area and before going out for the evening. Excellent restaurant just a 10min walk away for dinner or 10 euro taxi to town for the pubs with music. The staff was friendly and helpful, but not intrusive. Would definitely recommend Friar's Glen a the perfect retreat.
