“Just right for family stay in Killarney”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

The Old Weir lodge was comfortable, clean, and we had a good size room for a family of four. Location is ideal -- walking distance from town, but not close enough to suffer the at times loud night life. Breakfast was fine, everything you expect of a traditional Irish breakfast, and very good scones. Good value for the price.

My wife and I recently stayed 2 nights here on visit to Killarney and its surroundings. We used it as a base camp for visits to the Ring of Kerry and the Dingle Peninsula. For that purpose, its location was fine. However, it is a bit of a walk (15 minutes) for downtown Killarney, which can be positive or negative depending on what you are looking for.

The rooms themselves were clean and had an adequate amount of space. However, our was a a little damp and musty. Definitely not a room that wows you but adequate enough for a short visit.

On the positive side, the breakfast was excellent, one of the best we had in Ireland.

This family run Guest House is quite excellent. It has a lovely warm feeling about it as soon as you enter.Ever member of staff is so helpful and cheerful. The rooms are very large and very well furnished. Breakfast is very good. On our arrival we realised we hadnt asked for a room with a bath when we asked the room was changed right away. The staff are very knowledgable about the local area.I cannot speak to highly about Old Weir Lodge. I shall return.

Great place in an amazing town. If you are visiting ring of Kerry make sure that you stay in Killarney and if you are staying here old weir lodge is great alternative. It is pretty mich half the price of all other hotels in town. Rooms are twice as
Large very clean and fast Internet. Staff are extremely helpful.

This may be classed as a guest house but it is as good if not better than so many hotels I have stayed in. The rooms are of a good size and immaculately clean. The breakfasts are excellent and include a self-service buffet and full-Irish or variants of. The staff are friendly and courteous. It is well located within 5 mins walk of the town centre and there is off-road parking too. All round I would recommend this to anyone who wishes to visit one of the most scenic areas of Ireland.

My wife & I have just returned from a weeks holiday at The Old Weir Lodge in Killarney.

We booked our stay here based on the many Trip Advisor reviews that we had read and we can honestly say that our stay here surpassed our expectations.

We would particularly like to thank the owners Maureen and Dermot, their son Niall, Aileen (front desk) and Eileen (our waitress for most of our stay) in fact all of the staff were excellent. We were greeted every morning and on our return to the hotel each day with a cheery smile and throughout our stay we felt totally relaxed and at home. In our view this has to be one of the best of the smaller hotels, if not THE best hotel we have ever stayed in, The hotel offers very clean and tidy spacious bedrooms, well decorated and maintained community areas, good quality and choice on the breakfast menu and by far the most polite and friendly staff we have ever met. Our hats go off to Maureen and Dermot, because their management skills and technics are replicated by all of their staff.

The hotel is perfectly located and is just a five or six minutes level stroll into Killarney town centre. and Killarney itself is an ideal base for touring Killarney National Park, The Ring of Kerry, The Dingle Peninsula and much more.

Our bedroom was at the front of the hotel and was extremely large, very clean and nicely decorated and it is great that the hotel provides two lounges for their guests to sit and relax in after a day out enjoying the beautiful countryside.

This hotel is well worth its 4 Star Irish Tourist Board and 5 Diamond Rating from the AA and is excellent value for money. We have stayed in a variety of 4 Star (large and small)hotels and guesthouses in the UK and abroad who charge a higher rate than The Old Weir Lodge but offer much smaller bedrooms and very little, if any, guest lounge facilities.

Whatever you are coming to Ireland to see and do, Killarney has everything to offer the first time visitor. There is an abundance of level tracks for you to walk or cycle through Killarney National Park, or why not treat yourself to a Jaunty cart ride, of which there are many to choose from around, the town, the lakes and through the mountains (Gap of Dunloe). The scenery in and around Killarney is breathtaking, but don’t just take our word for it, ask Maureen, Dermot and their team - they love to help you to enjoy your stay here.

We have friends and relations who are looking to visit Ireland and we will have no hesitation in recommending the Old Weir Lodge to them.

Room Tip: The rooms at the front of the hotel do have a nice view, however with the windows open you can somet...

+ This B&B is an lovely old house, though it is quite big so you do not get a intimate atmosphere. Good facilities with a small pub, nice dining room for breakfast, and the staff is very kind and helpful. Large spacious bedrooms and bathrooms with comfortable king sized beds.
Plenty of free parking and a good spot to explore the surrondings.

- The location is just outside the town centre, and it takes about 10 min walk to reach the centre of Killarney. Otherwise nothing negative.
