“Lovely Hostess. Great House & Location”
Reviewed March 22, 2009

I stayed in this B & B from 12 -17 March. From the time my friend and I arrived, we thought it was a lovely house on its exterior. When were greeted at the door, and shown to our rooms, and it plenty big, very clean and airy. The house, and grounds, were kept very well, and would have no problem recommending ths to anyone thinking of staying here

We loved staying at this b&b. The property is a short walk to town. Staff was wonderful and breakfast was very good. We appreciated the complimentary computer for guests to use. Rooms were average but clean.

We stayed at Killarney Lodge Guest house in Sept for 3 nights. The house is situated in the centre of Killarney Town opposite the park. It is a perfect location. It is a purpose built guest house with 16 bed rooms - more like a small hotel really. There is a delightful, homely and friendly atmosphere about the place with a blend of helpful efficiency from management and staff. It is not at all surprising that it had a 4 star rating.
The breakfast was cooked to order each morning. it was top quality and presented with style.
We loved this place.
We look forward to revisiting Killarney Lodge and we recommend it highly.

Excellent lodge with easy access to all of Killarney. Played Dooks and Tralee and the drive to each was very close, less than 30 minutes to each. Catherine was fantastic, she got up early both days to get us breakfast and the breakfasts were fantastic, lots of excellent food and fantastic service. Room was great, very clean and comfortable. Will stay again on our next trip from Chicago to Ireland.

Let me preface this review by saying that I have been a voyeur on Trip Advisor for a few years now and have often taken advice from other travelers, but this is the first time I have been inspired to write a review.

My husband and I stayed at the Killarney Lodge for four nights in October - just returned from Ireland a few days ago - and we had a wonderful experience at this B&B and in Killarney in general.

The location of the Killarney Lodge was great! It was within very short walking distance to a wide variety of restaurants, bars, and shops, and it was only a few minutes drive to major sites such as the National Park, Muckross House, Ross Castle, the Ring of Kerry road, etc.

Our room was spacious and clean, as was the bathroom. The bathroom was large and better equipped as compared against other B&Bs that we stayed at during our vacation in Ireland, especially for the room rate. One place we stayed at had a shower basin that was so small and flimsy that I likened it to a cat litter pan. Not this place - there was ample room and light in the bathroom and a good supply of hot water, too.

The breakfasts were delicious and filling and the service was consistently warm and friendly. Another nice thing about Killarney Lodge is that the owners had others assisting them, for example, with serving breakfast and being on hand to answer guest questions, assist with laundry services, arrange for tours, etc. The owners themselves were sincere and friendly. I think that their general good nature, combined with the fact that they had others to help them with the operations of the B&B, made for what seemed to be a happy couple, readily able to make their guests feel comfortable and at ease in their home.

There were two different common areas within the house where guests could relax - one being the living / family room downstairs, and the other being a sitting room with a computer and free internet access. This was a blessing, because it made it easy for me to keep in touch with family, to let them know that my husband and I arrived in Ireland safely, etc, without paying for access at an Internet Cafe or lugging around a laptop.

Hands down, this was the best value for our money in Ireland. I disagree with another recent post that Killarney Lodge was expensive relative to other similar B&Bs. I believe that you usually get what you pay for. While elsewhere in Ireland, we stayed at another place that cost less money and were sorely disappointed and actually ended up staying fewer nights than anticipated because of the shabby conditions and cold reception. We made a change in plans and went to a town that was not originally on our itinerary and splurged on a junior suite at a delightful historical hotel (Dunraven Arms in Adare) and of course paid more money than when we stayed at the Killarney Lodge, but then again, we had a larger room and additional amenities.

To summarize, we had a delightful stay at the Killarney Lodge, would stay there again, and would highly recommend it to family and friends.

  • Liked — Too many good things to pick one favorite.
  • Disliked — Nothing.

We stayed here to play golf and tour around Killarney. The B&B is in an excellent location, convenient for driving, and 3 minute walk into the center of Killarney which has numerous pubs, restaurants, shopping, and tourist sites. Our room was large and clean. The breakfast was fine. The staff were very friendly and helped us with restaurant recommendations.

I stayed here with three colleagues for a Friday evening and found the Killarney Lodge very welcoming, friendly and helpful. The accommodation is superb and the breakfast was excellent! They really go out of their way to make it a special experience. It is five minutes walk into town and so is ideally suited to explore Killarney. Thoroughly recommended!
