Elyod House
Ranked #11 of 143 Killarney B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 16, 2014

Mary Doyle, owner of this B&B, truly has the gift of hospitality. We stayed 2 nights with our 3 children ages 17-26. It's situated just on the edge of town in a very peaceful setting away from the hustle and bustle of the main thoroughfare. Mary made us feel welcome and made herself available anytime. It was so nice to spend time talking to her and learn about life in Ireland- truly a highlight of our 9 day trip around Ireland and the U.K.. The breakfast was delicious and the house was immaculate- the accommodations were the nicest of our whole trip! I would highly recommend this B&B.

The Eloyd House was recommended to us by a local tourist center in Kilarney. Inexperienced with bed and breakfasts, I was a bit apprehensive when pulling into the Eloyd House driveway. However, we were immediately greeted with a big smile and welcomed with open arms by the wonderful hostess, Mary.

Mary was pleasant, personable and professional from the minute we met her. She was everything you would want in having an Irish hostess for the weekend! She was so delightful and lovely - welcoming us to her home and asking where we were in our travels. After a bit of small talk, Mary immediately informed us that she had an early meeting the next day and would have to serve breakfast a bit earlier than usual. This was quite contrary to the usual experience, but given that we were traveling during the off season and her home 'technically' wasn't available, Mary did not want to put us out and still welcomed us. We appreciated her honesty and managing expectations upfront and decided to stay.

I am big on attention to details and the 'little things'...and Mary is too :) Her house is neat, clean and well-organized. The decor is modern and fresh with everything you need - hairdryer, wash cloths, shampoo in the shower, etc. She even includes a nicely organized and laid out binder in the room with recommendations on where to eat, what to see and where to go. Prior to breakfast the next morning, Mary offers a detailed menu that she will have prepared for you the next morning. Her sun room/breakfast room is very welcoming and cozy - complete with Irish music and a buffet of food.

Though our time at the Eloyd House was short, we would recommend it to anyone considering staying.

We had a wonderful stay at Elyod house. Their hospitality was just great. Great breakfast, rooms, nice and kind family including the playful and friendly Ruby. Was surprised we were the first Japanese travellers to stay there. The location is great and we would recommend anyone searching for a nice B&B to stay here. Maybe it needs to be promoted in other sites such as hotel.com or expedia etc... Sorry it took so long to comment. Misplaced the paper you gave us. Hope everyone is doing fine. Take care! Hope we would be able to visit you again one of these days. Will sure to visit if we are in Killarney.

We were so glad that our friend recommended this place to stay. Mary Doyle is a warm, welcoming bundle of energy. Our room was homey and always clean, with a wonderful view. Breakfasts were excellent, no matter what I ordered. Between the windows and the skylights, it was always warm and cheery. It is close to downtown Killarney, and it is close to the wonderful sights in County Kerry. We spent five nights there. I couldn't recommend it more highly.

We couldn't have had a warmer welcome anywhere in Ireland. Mary took such good care of us during our five nights at Elyod House: the place is immaculate, yet homey -- and chatting with her was always a bright spot in our day. The breakfast room is absolutely gorgeous (rain or shine, it has great light and beautiful views), and the food was outstanding. Elyod House is the perfect place to stay in Co. Kerry. We miss you, Mary -- and Ruby, too!

This was something like my 7th stay at Elyod House. It's the perfect base of operations for anyone exploring Co. Kerry, and is a quick walk to Killarney city center. The house is immaculate, the rooms are super comfortable, and you won't find a kinder, more accommodating host than Mary Doyle. There are many B&Bs in the Killarney area. For me, the ONLY choice is Elyod House!

It was the second time, we have visited Killarney and decided to stay at Elyod House again because Mary is a great host and a very friendly and helpful Person.Killarney is may one of the most valuable places to stay in Ireland if you like to do some Outdoor Activites and enjoy the nature of Ireland. You have a lot of opportunites to do some daytrips from there. Mary gives very good advices and the location of the B&B is excellent because you are between Ross Castle, National Park & the City Center. In five minutes you are in the Center but on the other side also directly in the beautiful Nature of Ireland. It's a very cheerful place to stay - We re coming back again. Thanks Mary and see you soon.
