Abbey Lodge is beautiful. The person who greeted us I think is the owner and not friendly at all. The people who work there are wonderful. Great breakfast and location.

We traveled all over Ireland during the month of September and Abbey Lodge was the only B&B/Guest House that we chose to visit twice during our month-long stay. Like everyone who visits Killarney, we fell in love with this charming, vibrant town. We will never forget its friendly pubs, restaurants, jaunty rides, shopping and Irish beauty. Abbey Lodge was recommended to us by a B&B owner in Galway based on input she had received from her guests over the past few years. We were so grateful for her recommendation. Abbey Lodge turned out to be ideally located in easy, super-easy walking distance to the wonderful shopping, restaurants’ and pubs in Killarney town. Our rooms were spacious, clean, attractive and very nicely furnished. The breakfasts were superb, offering a choice of three or four different menu combinations which everyone in the dining room raved about. Abbey Lodge has two comfortable guest lounges which are equipped with computers for complimentary use by its guests. The staff and its proprietor John King, bent over backwards to assist us with recommendations, directions, even gave me some Internet genealogy links when I expressed interest in our Irish family roots. Abbey Lodge was a really good experience.

Abbey Lodge is beautifully appointed with art and fine furniture. The location is no more than 2-4 minutes walking from the best pubs and great food--not to mention the most delightful jarveys and jaunting cars. The host John King is very kind and solicitous. I assume he has been hosting for years, but his attitude feels like every guest is the first.
Breakfast was wonderful. Would love to come back here in spring to see the flowers on the mountains surrounding the lakes. Wouldn't think of staying elsewhere! Thanks, John.

Staying with Johnny at The Abbey Inn was the best b&b that we encounter during our stay in Ireland. Johnny King went way beyond the call of duty to make our stay a great experience. My wife is disabled and he moved us to a better room for her and made sure that we had everything that we needed. Johnny personally moved our car to make it more convenient for us.
We felt as if we were staying with family and it just doesn't get any better.

My husband and I enjoyed so much our stay at the Abbey Lodge. The house itself is magical and full of wonderful art work and pictures, we just loved looking at it all. Breakfast was such a treat!! It was made with so much care; loved the pancakes and the waffles, so delicious!! The location was amazingly convenient, walking distance to town and a great base from which we visited The Ring of Kerry, Dingle and Baera peninsula. We loved staying there and enjoyed it so much.

We arrived at the Abbey Lodge after an overnight flight at about 7AM, well before their check in time. John let us relax in the living area with a cup of coffee while he had his staff hurry to prepare our room so we could settle in. There aren't many highend hotel chains that would offer that type of welcome. The staff was friendly. They recommended and set up a trip to the Gap of Dunloe that was the highlight of our entire trip! The room we had was a triple. I was worried that staying in a B&B we'd be stuck with some type of cot and 2 beds. There were THREE REAL beds in the room and we had much more space than anticipated. The room was always clean. I looked forward to breakfast every morning. It was terrific. I also liked that the B&B was a short walk into town a BIG plus for me. I would highly recommend this B&B to another traveler!
