We spent one night at Friars Glen Country House and would have been happy to have stayed much longer. Beautiful house, surrounded by Killarney National Park; a gracious welcome; comfortably elegant sitting room with a peat fire; huge bedroom with great linens and bathroom; and an excellent breakfast. It felt more like a small, elegant hotel. It is located outside of Killarney center, but close to the National Park entrance.
