“Good amenities”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

I'm not usually a huge fan of staying in B&Bs but this one was very nice. We stayed for two nights and really appreciated the amenities such as free tea/coffee, umbrellas in case it rained, a (shared) fridge for guest use, free wifi and computer access, and free parking. The breakfast was honestly the best we had in Ireland - really delicious homecooked food that tasted like it could have been served in an upscale restaurant! Frank was extremely helpful in giving us dining recommendations, driving directions, and other advice. Our room was very clean and comfortable. We were able to walk into the town of Killarney for dinner and the state park (including Ross Castle and Muckross House) as a short drive away. I would definitely recommend and stay there again!

We stayed for two nights at the Windway House during our honeymoon.
Frank is a fantastic host and always has a story or helpful information about the area to tell.
Mary, his wife, was an amazing cook and the breakfast was always phenomenal.
Close to great pubs featuring live music and authentic food, as well as many shops for tourists to explore.
For a lovely time in the Kilarney area, this B&B is a must stay.

I really can't begin to describe how wonderful my stay at Windway House was. Walking distance to town and Frank advised me where all the best places were to explore. He even arranged all my tours (I've been traveling alone.) There were plenty of beautiful places to walk located just down the street. Frank and his wife are very well organized and a lovely breakfast awaited me each morning in the dining room. I'll definitely return again.

We had a wonderful stay at Windway House. Frank was very welcoming and helpful...great sense of humor! There were many small touches that were very appreciated and spoke highly of our hosts. Breakfast was great..our room a little small, but very comfortable. Location was great as it was an easy, short walk into town. Could have easily stayed here many more nights!

Frank's B&B was one of several we visited on our recent trip to Ireland & it was a wonderful experience. We stayed two night & it was clean, had a delicious hot breakfast with a beautiful cold breakfast buffet, nicely decorated and Frank was a great host. He was happy to answer our many questions and had the best sense of humor. Thanks, Frank for a wonderful stay!

We stayed two nights at The Windway House and Frank was a great host. The room was very spacious and comfortable, you had a selection of tea, coffee hot chocolate and home made cake in the reception room available all hours, and the breakfast was made to order. He had great recommendations on where to eat and even called to book us a tour arround the Ring of Kerry and arranged for our pick up. Frank suggested we make a trip to Muckross House (which we had never heard mention of in our guide books) and we were glad we did. Don't miss it. The B&B is perfectly situated and very convenient to the downtown area. It was so well situated that we even walked through the national park to Ross Castle.
