“Can't imagine a better B&B in Killarney”
Reviewed June 29, 2012

I spent three weeks traveling around Ireland with my parents this June. We stayed at B&B's all over the country, and Sika Lodge rates right at the top. The home itself is beautiful and perfectly located. It is right outside the city center and at the start of the Ring of Kerry. What more could you ask for? The condition and decor of the rooms and common areas was perfect. It was obvious that they had really taken the time to update and decorate the rooms within the last couple years. The rooms were contemporary without losing comfort. They each had nice flat panel televisions with an actual HD picture. No hideous SD stretched on a HD TV. There was a complimentary bottle of water that was refilled each day along with a small treat, a Kit Kat in my case. The owner, Serena, was friendly, enthusiastic, and very helpful with plans and food recommendations. She talked about being a foodie and it showed at breakfast time. We were always given five choices, including a full Irish breakfast, delicious pancakes, potato pancakes with black pudding, and even some vegetarian options. The presentation and flavor of each meal was excellent. A great way to start the day! I would not hesitate to recommend this B&B to friends and family and strangers on TripAdvisor. I would also not hesitate to stay here again. Not sure when I'll make to Ireland again, but if I am near Killarney I will be staying at Sika Lodge.

Room Tip: Room 1 and 2 are closer to the road. It wasn't a problem in my case, but if you are a light slee...

I've stayed in a lot of hotels and B&B's over the years but this is the first time I've been moved to write a review. I simply cant recommend Sika Lodge highly enough. From the minute you arrive to the minute you leave its an absolute pleasure. The bedrooms are decorated to a really high standard and the beds are so comfortable that the only thing that makes you want to leave them is the breakfast (including Serena's homemade scones that you need to try!) Situated really close to the town centre its only a few mins drive or you can take the lovely walk along the river and passed the cathedral which only takes around 10 mins. We had a fantastic weekend staying there and cant wait for another excuse to go to Killarney so we can stay again!

Spent a week travelling around Co Clare & Co Kerry in June & this B&B was by far the best. Rooms were very clean, Serena very welcoming & helpful & breakfast was great. Would definitely stay here again next time I'm in Killarney. Nice little touches too!

I was attending a conference in Killarney last week and book the Sika Lodge accommodation. This B&B is nicely positioned in the town, the rooms were clean, spacious and provided everything one could need. Breakfast was 5*****. Would highly recommend this accommodation

My Girlfriend and me stayed at the Sika Lodge for 2 nights at the beginning of June and we loved it.
The B & B is nicely situated at the Ring of Kerry and has its own free parking (I guess you'd expect that of a B & B in Killarney) . The city centre with its lovely restaurants and pubs is within 10 minutes walking distance.
Serena and Alan were perfect hosts and had lots of useful tips about where to go and what to do in and around Killarney.
The rooms are freshly renovated, very clean, furnished with good taste and last but not least: the beds are very comfy. The en-suite bathrooms also are very clean, the free wifi (as already mentioned in other reviews) seemed to be faster than in other b&b's.
Serena is a very good cook! I can highly recommend trying her pancakes with fresh irish strawberrys for breakfast (the full irish or double eggs with bacon were just as good but I love pancakes)!
All in all we can highly recommend this B & B for everyone who is planning to stay in Killarney or travelling in Kerry. We will definitely be back on our next trip to Ireland!

Serena was a super host - helpful accommodating and friendly. House is very tidy, delicious breakfast, close to town and gateway to national park (to run/walk off your breakfast!). Lots of nice touches too. Definitely recommend. Thanks

My husband and I stayed in this B&B in early June. The B & B is ideally located within walking distance to all the bars and restaurants and shops in Killarney town. Our room was really clean and quite spacious. We were on a tour of Ireland so on our first night we took advantage of the extensive DVD library and watched a DVD in the comfort of our room. Breakfast was excellent the following morning. Full compliments to the chef! We will definitely be back to spend more time in the beautiful town of Killarney and will be back to Sika Lodge for the excellent service and personal B & B touch.
