“A Friendly Welcome, Beautiful Rooms and Great Breakfast!”
Reviewed October 17, 2009

Couldn't fault this accommodation. We didnt know much about the place beforehand, to be honest we booked it as it was very reasonably priced and close to where we needed to be.
Upon arrival, the receptionist was very accommodating and made us feel very welcome. Our room was lovely, it had recently been refurbished and had a nice crisp and clean feel about it.
Breakfast was lovely - There were plenty of options, even for me being a vegetarian!
I would definitely recommend this to people travelling to Killarney; it is excellent value for money!

We didnt arrive until late on a busy Saturday evening which wasnt a problem for the very friendly reception staff. We were greeted by name and shown to our spacious room.
I was surprised by its clean appearance as some of the photos on the website dont do it justice. The beds were extremely comfy.
Breakfast was lovely with a choice of different options. The waiting staff were also friendly and efficient and nothing was too much trouble.
I would love to visit again as due to website I wasn't expecting it to be as nice as it was due to the affordable price. It was an ideal location to town ( 5 mins walking distance) and no road noise was heard from our room. The only negative was that the car park was a bit of a squeeze, although we did arrive late on a Saturday night so that wasnt really surprising, and that there was no views from the rooms.
In all, I would rate this 9/10.

My partner and i originally booked for 1 night, but then changed it to 2 nights, which was not a problem for them at Rivermere they were able to accommodate, Staff arew very helpful and friendly. Guesthouse is in a great location only a few minutes walk into the town.
Rooms were clean and comfortable and breakfast was lovely.

The only suggestion i have for the staff at Rivermere, has to do with the sign, we had some difficulty finding the guesthouse as the sign out the front, the name of the guesthouse needs to be slightly bigger and the sign wasnt lit up at night, the only way we found it was from the unique design and colours of the actual guesthouse.

Great place to stay in Killarney, would recommened it to friends and family.

We booked two rooms for two nights at Rivermere 4 months in advance. Of course, we didn't know that you could basically show up anywhere in Ireland and find a hundreds of B&B's in town that take walk-ins. I guess everybody rents out the rest of their house as a B&B to make ends meet. But I would recommend a reservation in-advance, since you'd be taking your chances on "house-hunting" if you arrive late in the afternoon.

The picture of Rivermere doesn't do it justice. It's an ADORABLE little B&B, less than a mile down the main road to Killarney National Forest and the Muckross House. Definitely walkable if you're planning a late-night pubfest in the bustling, picture-worthy town, but a slightly steep upclimb on the way in. (Worked fine for that night we wanted to inbibe a tad bit too much!) It was on a loud road from 8am to 11pm, but we were able to open the windows wide-open at night and didn't have any trouble with sound sleeping. Beds were very firm, but not so much as to ruin your back.

We got one room with that RARE king-size bed and one with a double and a twin. (Men are too tall for a twin, so they must get a double-size bed for diagonal sleeping).

WARNING: One of the rooms got terrible shower pressure, shutting off several times when we were shampooing! The owner (helpful, if not a tad bit too busybody, and with a voice eerily similar to Mr. Smithers from the Simpsons) seemed genuinely suprised and concerned when we told him about the terrible shower. He said he'd check immediately that one of the pumps had gone out. Might be fixed.

Our only mistake? Staying only two days. This part of the country has so much to do, we should have stayed 3 or 4 nights. Rivermere had the BEST breakfast (included) that we had throughout Ireland. All breakfast in Ireland is the same, but the scrambled eggs were fluffier, better-quality toast, awesome fruit assortment, much better sausage (although still tasted weird, with extra fillers in the meat unlike American sausage) and the RARE cup of good coffee served in a French press. (I'd order tea the whole time in Ireland, the coffee is gross!)

I totally agree - staying at rivermere was a wonderful experience! The hosts, Hannah and Andrew were gracious and welcoming, the bedrooms were beautiful and the food was plentiful! We had a great holiday in Killarney Ireland and if we ever go back to the mountains and lakes there we will definately stay at Rivermere again!

Rivermere guesthouse is simply the best accommodation I have stayed at in Ireland! I have stayed there several times and each time I visit I am overwhemed by the careful consideration and good taste of the owners. It is luxurious, has wonderful big bedrooms and ensuite bathrooms, a beautiful lounge area and the biggest tastiest breakfasts in the whole of Ireland!

And for this, you would expect to pay a lot more than you do. The rates are so reasonable for the wonderful accommodation and hospitality you receive! I would definately recommend this accommodation to anyone who is thinking of staying in Killarney or its environs.
