Woodlawn House Killarney

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 19, 2014

Wayne, the owner, greeted us and gave recommendations about restaurants and places to visit. He could not have been more helpful. The hotel is large and spacious and 30 seconds from the road that is the Ring of Kerry and less than 10 minutes walk into the centre of town. Our room was at the front facing towards the mountains. There was traffic noise during the day but we were not disturbed at night despite the fact that all the windows were open as it was 27 degrees on the day we arrived. The room is very smart and clean, the shower very powerful and towels plus flannels were provided. The breakfast service is slick and professional with Wayne, and the others serving, doing so efficiently and cheerfully. Breakfast can be as big and filling as you want and there is even homemade soda bread fresh out of the oven. This is a wonderful place to stay

Room Tip: I think rooms at the front because, although there is some traffic noise, the view to the mountains...

This hotel made our trip much more relaxing, cozy and memorable! The first thing in the hotel Wayne greeted us and told us an array of places to go, things to see and recommended several restaurants, a big big help for first timers! We went to most the places he recommended and were very happy with them! This is the perfect trip for a family. We went for a family of 4 and it made our trip very pleasant to be led toward the best parts of Killarney. Very nicely decorated and terrific full Irish breakfast.

Right in town, literally an easy 10 minute walk into town. Very plain, like it was built for a guest house vs a typical B & B. It was functional and owner Wayne very friendly. It just wasn't as homey a place as others we've stayed at this trip.

Rooms do not hold any noise, you can hear people in the hall from room 106. Bed very soft, as are pillows. One of the worst night's sleep I've had. Slept on floor for a while to try getting some sleep. While there is plenty of room, it's not laid out very well, and there weren't many places to put luggage without unpacking and using the closet, which for 1 night was a waste of time.

In place of bars of soap, they have small 3 ounce containers that they refill and you squeeze for bath gel or hand soap. I don't mind saving the environment, but these small bottles made it appear cheap. Even those pump containers would make a better impression.

Breakfast started at 8:00 and was an excellent assortment of cold cereal, yogurt, juices, etc. A hot entree of whatever you wanted, was served as you ordered. All the food was delicious.

How do you rate this overall? It's surely not a 5 with the terrible bed, but does a horrible night's sleep make it a 1? I opted for an overall of 3 since the breakfast was good, the room was spacious and Wayne was helpful. I doubt I would stay here again traveling through the area with the whole street being made of up B & B.

We had only one night here, but as we arrived at5 pm and it was cold and drizzly, Wayen the young host brought us a cup of tea and biscuit into the spacious lounge room which is available at all times for guests. The house was so cosy and warm. After helping us with things to do and go to, and taking time to chat, we were shown our room which was spacious, brand new bed, lovely fresh white linen, it all felt right. It is a lovely old house purpose built a B+B, one flight of stairs, very spacious dining room. Wayne even encouraged us to bring a drink back if we wanted and sit in the lounge room in the comfy sofas. Here is a young man trying to make his mark in business, his first baby is due in 2 weeks. Nothing is too much trouble for him to do. Breakfast was plentiful , he makes his own brown bread each day. Outstanding attitude. We would highly recommend staying here. Location is fantastic, so quiet nod yet so close to walk to town.

Room Tip: Location was fantastic, very quiet off the main road but easy walk to town

On a quiet lane, 10 mins walk from city centre, a lovely B&B. We had a spacious room and comfortable bathroom/shower. Beautiful view of mountains. Good service, good breakfast.
The bed could be better though, gave us a bit of a hollow back.

Room Tip: The road is quiet, so a room at the front is fine, and has a beautiful view of the mountains to the...

We stayed 2 nights at Woodlawn house and from the initial welcome, Wayne was fantastic. Giving us advice on good places to eat, drink and listen to some music. Also a few tips on driving the Ring of Kerry which meant we enjoyed it that much more.

The room was massive and had plenty of room to spread out! The rooms were clean and tidy and the newly installed bed was perfect, we slept like logs! The breakfast was one of the best we had in Ireland and Wayne's freshly homemade brown bread was just devine. The whole building is really nice and a very homely feel.

The location is great and so very close to the centre of town but just off the main drag just enough to be peaceful and quiet. A short walk lands you right on the doorstep of the pubs and restaurants. The 5 minute walk back (or 10 minute stumble) is quite good to do after dinner or a few pints.

Just back from a great weekend in Killarney, we stayed in the Woodlawn House, we arrived on Friday and met Wayne. Wayne and his wife have just taken over the running of the guesthouse, His mother in law was the previous owner. We really enjoyed our stay, Wayne and his staff were so helpful and friendly, the rooms were lovely , spotlessly clean, we had a great mountain view from ours. The breakfast was really good, plenty of everything, Wayne makes his own brown bread, while we were there he had made a new variety and was very eager to hear our opinion, we were no help both were gorgeous, so our tip is, make both !!!!!
We would really recommend staying in Woodlawn House, it is a five minute walk into the town, and a fifteen minute walk to the National Park. You will be looked after really well and they will give you any information on thing to do and see in Killarney. \
Thanks for a great stay, best of luck in you new venture, but we know you will do well, and the best of luck to you and your wife for the new arrival due in two months. We will be back.

Room Tip: Our room was to the front of the house, and we had a great view of the mountains, the road outside i...
