We enjoyed our stay here tremendously and wish that we had more time to stay! Our travels took us on a one week (too short) trip staying in a new B&B at each stop. Kathleen's was our most enjoyable experience. The service is impeccable from Kathleen's warm welcome, to great directions and advice, local information, or just a great conversation. The rooms were clean and spacious, the common areas wonderfully decorated with thoughtful amenities and breakfast cooked to order! We really felt a part of the family in Kathleen's Country House and the location is just fantastic! Make sure you have at least three days here, although Kathleen's advice allowed us to make the most out of two.

Room Tip: Don't be afraid to ask anything politely (:

We spent one night at Kathleen's Country House. Kathleen was very friendly and an amazing wealth of knowledge on the area. She asked a few questions and then quickly pointed out what she thought would be the highlights for us. Our room was clean and spacious. Breakfast was cooked to order and very nice.

Kathleen built and has run this magnificent purpose built b&b for I think she said around 16 years now. She has just got it completely right. Everything works perfectly the ambience is great, furnishings lovely and Kathleen herself is such a treat. A hostess who goes way beyond, is a wealth of knowledge and has a really beautiful soul. If you are passing this way, Kathleens is a must.

We were on a driving vacation from Dublin to Kerry and had pre-arranged to return our rental car at Kerry airport and fly back to Dublin for our return flights home. If not for those uncooperative beasts at Ryan Air, we'd have extended our stay for several more nights to enjoy the amazing hospitality at Kathleen's Country House for a while longer.

Conveniently located? Yes! Stunningly elegant house? Yes! Lovely grounds? Yes! Spotlessly clean and comfortable rooms? Yes! Fantastic breakfast? Yes! An ideal spot for families or a romantic stay for couples? Yes! All this and a modest price tag, too. The only thing more wonderful than Kathleen's Country House is Kathleen herself: she is warm, charming, funny and incredibly knowledgeable about the area. Leave your guidebook in your room - you won't need it with Kathleen's friendly guidance about what to see and do and where to eat. When you've worn yourself out with your day trip you can stop off for some quiet time in the beautiful library room or open a bottle of wine and enjoy the lovely fire in the parlor before heading up to your comfortable room for the night.

Kathleen's will certainly be our FIRST (and longest) stop the next time we're in Ireland!

If you're looking for a place to stay convenient to the Ring of Kerry and many other sought after attractions, this is it! Beautifully appointed, comfortable, quiet, just a short distance from bustling Killarney, and with a very knowledgeable, charming, and attentive hostess. There is little else you could want. Staying at Kathleen's Country House was one of the highlights of our trip to Ireland. There are several beautiful sitting rooms and a library in which you can relax, though with such comfortable rooms, you don't need them. You are treated to a wonderful breakfast, complete with a menu (not seen in any other place we stayed) and all the travel tips you could need. Don't miss it.

Kathleen's is a wonderful B&B just outside downtown Killarney. Along with clean rooms and a great selection of breakfast items Kathleen, the host, is always willing to offer friendly advice on what sights to see and how to get there. She'll even draw you an accurate map! Other amenities include free wireless access and a basketball hoop outside and the price for this fine experience is more than reasonable.
