Pros: Excellent location in Killarney, short walk from bus and train stations. Breakfast is included in the price, and it was awesome. The people who run it are so friendly, and they went out of their way for us. They even insisted on driving us to the bus station at the end of our stay. Comfortable beds. Cons: Toilet takes...

I stayed here with 3 friends last week. We all agreed that it was great value for money and the accommodation was very comfortable. The breakfast was excellent (One of the best full Irish breakfasts I've ever had) and the staff very friendly and welcoming. It's only a few minutes walk from the railway station, so convenience is a major...

The only thing was the heating that was off during the night. but the blankets were warm enough. The location is few minutes from city center. The staff were great and welcoming. Breakfast was an Irish breakfast and it was good. my sun really liked it. they were ok with the dog.

A friend and I recently booked a room online at this B&B on the recommendation of a tour guide. Unfortunately we accidently booked a double room rather than the needed twin. We were shown a very nice double room on the first floor but as it was not suitable for our needs, the person in charge kindly agreed to change...

We stayed here for 1 night as we traveled around the country. Upon arrival we were notified that payment was cash only, which we were not prepared for as we had booked the room on booking.com and it said it accepted credit card payment. The room was ok, decent sized, but the bathroom had no toiletries in it - no...

We stayed there two nights and my husband left his jumper in the bedroom. They sent it to me very fast. The owners are really very kind. Good location, near the city centre. Good breakfast. Very quiet place.

We booked a specific room online (double+single), and were given a different room when we arrived (3 singles). It was disappointing to pay the same price for a room we hadn't chosen. It was a room with a skylight instead of a window (it does make a bit of a difference), no reading lamps (only one ceiling light in the...

Everything smells ohh so delicious, towels, bed sheets , rooms , bathrooms, everywhere and everything .... Some flowery sweet lavender vanilla smell. Clean lovely homey place with amazing location to the center with short walking distance. Only they should have garbage cans inside the rooms. There is only one in the bathrooms. Hospitality was grand!

3 of us were looking for something nice and simple for a weekend in Killarney as we were attending a sporting event. Room and House were spot on, staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough for us. Food was perfect, even at a 5am start :) Well recommended.
