We highly recommend the Priory in Killarney. Tim was very accommodating and the property was perfect for a week long stay. We recommend walking to the Killarney Brewery for some great local brew!
This is a beautiful property. One big main house with several surrounding cottages. They all have a homey, rustic feel. I love the decor. Large kitchens and plenty of bedrooms.
Walking distance to downtown with tons of shops and restaurants. And a short drive to the Gap of Dunlow.
There are even two taps on the wall outside of one cottage. One for spring water and one for sparkling spring water.
There were a bunch of us staying on property for a wedding, so we had the entire place.
I’ll be booking this place next time we come back!
We recently stayed with two of our kids (18 and 20) for four nights in the three bedroom, two bath house. Everything about our visit was top-notch, from the lovely, spacious and comfortable accommodations to the warm glow of the peat-burning fireplace to the view of the mountains out the upstairs bedroom window. The washer and dryer were a nice bonus!
The hosts, Tim and Bern, were so friendly and helped arrange our excursions to the Gap of Dunloe and the Dingle Peninsula. They also gave us great recommendations for dining and finding that perfect pint of Guinness in town.
The Priory is about 1 km outside of town. We walked except for one night when we needed a taxi due to heavy rain. In addition to our excursions, we spent time exploring the Killarney House and Gardens in town and then took a long hike, starting at nearby Muckross House and climbing to the waterfall on Tor Mountain and then taking the mountain trails beyond. Beautiful! Once you passed Tor Mountain we had the trail to ourselves.
Staying four days was perfect. We slowed down, slept late, and enjoyed the great outdoors and the pub scene in Killarney.
Great rental, charming, great location. Warm home made scones were delivered in the morning. Land lord was on site and checked in with us. We would stay there again
We were blown away when the 4 of walked into this stunning building. The smell of the peat fire was gorgeous and the cooking facilities brilliant. Day 2 were we were literally blown away when cyclone Ophelia hit Ireland. Bernadette was at our door with candles, books to read and advice. The house was rock solid and we spent the day reading by the open fire and flattening all our devices playing a Irish music. The gas burners still worked so dinner was not a problem. Once the winds died down we took a walk down to the water. Most of the shops were closed as 360000 properties had no power. If there was any place to ride out the biggest storm in 50 years it was the Priory. Thank you Bernadette. You made it an adventure we will never forget.
My parents and I stayed at the coach house in August 2017 I was getting married at The Brehon across the road and the Coach House was perfect... I could not ask for anything more, cosy, beautiful, peaceful and warm everything I wanted for the morning of my wedding... Tim was very helpful along with his wife they made sure all our needs were met. I would highly recommend this property to rent and would be definitely booking again in the near future... looking forward to sharing my pictures
This was a fantastic spot and ideal for two couples. The Coach House is perfect in every way and Tim is friendly, knowlegable and very helpful in suggesting restaurants, shopping areas and places to visit. He was available to answer all our questions in a friendly and professional manner. The home is exactly as depicted in the photos. It was a warm and cozy spot which we enjoyed during our four day visit. We have traveled extensively and usually rent vacation homes. This home did not disappoint and is probably one of my favorites. We do hope to return to the area and I hope this wil be our home away from home again !!!
