Windway House
Ranked #14 of 143 Killarney B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 2, 2013

I chose this location based on reviews and the location and was not disappointed! As with almost all Irish B&Bs, the room is a bit on the small side, but very comfortable and clean - probably the largest (Irish) bathroom that we had on our visit! The description of the location is perfect - but actually leaves out that you can almost see the cathedral from the property and once you are here you park your car and can walk everywhere in town - that was awesome considering our trip covered 5 counties so we spent a lot of time in the car. The location is quiet, Frank is very nice and quite funny and the breakfast was very good! He recommended a show one evening and we loved it! When/if I return to Killarney, I will definitely stay at The Windway House!

We booked this based on Tripadvisor reviews and the location, and we were not disappointed! Frank is a very informative and courteous host. We travelled with teenagers and needed two rooms and he set us up with rooms next to each other. The breakfast was very good with several options to choose from. Walking distance to the downtown area as well. Highly recommended!

We stayed there for 2 nights. The room was clean however it was small for a family of 3. We had no place to put our luggage and we had to block the door in order to be able to move around the room. The bathroom was also very small. For the price we paid I expected more. Frank the owner was very nice and friendly and gave us some tips regarding restaurants and bars with live music. Breakfast was very nice. The B&B is well located with a walking distance from the center of Kilarney and yet in a very quiet street with lots of parking spaces. I would recommend this B&B to couples but if you're traveling with kids, try to find B&B with larger rooms.

We were driving from the Aran Islands and hoped to make it to the Killarney area late in the evening so that we could do the Ring of Kerry the next day - kind of ambitious, but we knew it would help if we could get that far. We found a listing for the Windway House in our B&B book, called on the way to ask if there were openings for the next two nights and warned that we'd be very late (almost midnight) arrivals. Frank sounded great over the phone, and couldn't have been a better host when we met him in the morning. We were lucky enough to get the last available room and what luck that was! The room was clean and comfortable, there was a lovely breakfast, and Frank couldn't have been more helpful (or more fun)! He made it so easy for us, arranging our tour of the Ring of Kerry so that the coach picked us up at the door. The location is great - it's maybe a five minute walk to the downtown area where there were pubs with great music. Can't imagine that this place would get any bad reviews, it's really a sure bet for a clean, comfortable, nice place in a great location. Wish we could have stayed longer!

We just returned from a 10 day trip to Ireland in which we stayed at several B&Bs around the country as well as a few hotels. A standout was Windway House in Kilarney. Frank the proprietor is a warm, welcoming and incredibly knowledgeable fellow who provided us terrific suggestions for local attractions, places to visit and that most valuable of information,-directions! Kilarney is also a wonderful town with numerous local attractions as well as a good base of operations for the Ring of Kerry and the Dingle peninsula. Nearby Ross Castle and Muckross House are great places to visit.

Windway House, though it appears small from the outside contains many rooms and is very well appointed. The rooms are nicely fitted out with en suite bathrooms. The street is quiet yet an easy walk to the city and close by the attractions. The food was excellent and the traditional Irish Breafast lasted they day. But the real standout is Frank; he is just a great resource to visitors, quite outgoing and great fun to talk to. Visiting with Frank is a real treat. Can't say enough good things about this place.

Only stayed in Killarney one night and I stayed at Windway House. Frank made me feel very welcome and gave me some tips for the evening and for next days drive. Location is a quick 5 minutes walk into town and the room was clean and functional. Can't ask for more really

We stayed for 2 nights and could not fault anything. Frank is a wonderful host and this B&B is located very close to the city centre yet in a very quiet location. Great breakfast - in fact the best in UK and Ireland.
