Killaun B&B
Ranked #7 of 7 Cahir B&B and Inns
Reviewed 15 August 2010

When we got to the B&B, Jo showed us the room, and the bathroom across the hall that was to be for our use only. Nothing seemed amiss on our initial inspection. The room was a bit shabby looking but seemed clean enough--same for the bathroom. There was also free WiFi in the room.

About a half hour after arriving, I went to use our restroom. When I raised the toilet lid, it was obvious the toilet hadn't been cleaned (think poo on the seat, etc.). I was pretty upset about this, but it was early in the day, and we thought Jo might not have gotten around to cleaning the bathroom yet. We went out for a few hours. When we got back, the bathroom was still in the same state. Ick!

The house rubbish bin was stored right outside our window. At some point, it was opened up. After that, our room smelled overpoweringly of rotten meat for the rest of the night.

We could hear everything from the other rooms. Each room has a window above the door, so if anyone has a light on in there room, the light shines into your room, making it hard to sleep.

We were so creeped out by this place, we were afraid of breakfast. It turned out to be okay. We wouldn't recommend the sausages with the full Irish breakfast though--not good.

Jo was not very professional. She was overbearing and didn't seem to respect personal space. We made sure to keep our door locked at all times as she seemed perfectly willing to pop in at any moment.

Don't stay here. There must be nicer places around.

I saw a review of this B&B online and decided to email Jo Doyle at Killaun myself. She was so charming on the phone I just wanted to meet her knowing that her warm manner should produce a lovely place. I was right. It was charming and comfortable. Nice size rooms, doubles I saw had an extra twin bed. Bathrooms were a good size too (showers only). No sitting room but the dining area (with beautiful Irish linens) was very inviting and the other couple we travelled with sat with us there in the evening and planned our next days schedule. Killaun has a great location! I would plan on two days in Cahir - one for the Rock of Cashel, and the Abbey in the field opposite, and one day for the Cahir Castle and the Swiss Cottage. Ate at a pub in Cashel (bright purple) at the foot of the Rock. Many to choose from there. 3 min. walk to restaurants and downtown. Had lunch in Cahir at a coffee shop recommended by Jo. It was very good. Our breakfast provided by Jo was delicious and plentiful. Her gardens and yard are lovely as well. A really nice experience. You won't be disappointed.
