We arrived at Kingfisher on a Wednesday evening without a reservation. We gave it a try based on its good TripAdvisor ratings. It also seemed to be in a good location, convenient to the shops and pubs of Kilarney but not right in the middle of everything. We ended up staying two nights and it proved to be our best B&B experience during our 11 day stay in Ireland. On-site parking was a big plus, as parking seemed to otherwise be quite a challenge in Kilarney. We had to move rooms for the second night because Ann and Donal were booked with a tour for the second night . Both rooms that we had, though not fancy, were nicely decorated and spotlessly clean. Our breakfasts both mornings were terrific, especially the crepe-like pancakes. Ann was the consummate B&B hostess. Our first night, she recommended dinner at Bricin, which proved to be one of the finest meals we had during our stay in Ireland. Ann was also very generous in taking time to help us plan our excursions around Kilarney and even made some good suggestions for our travels as we left Kilarney. There is a dizzying array of B&B options in Kilarney and we were fortunate to land where we did.
