Kathleen was a very gracious host! The rooms were a good size for the 3 of us, and she had delicious biscuits and tea in it for us. She gave us directions and a map into town and suggested a couple restaurants too. We stayed here for two nights and enjoyed every minute of it. Kathleen makes a great Irish breakfast as well as "crepe" like pancakes. It's also within reasonable walking distance into town so it's in a good location.

We greatly enjoyed our stay at Sancta Maria. The room was very comfortable, and breakfast was wonderful. The proprieter, Kathleen, was friendly and interested in us and where we were from, and we had good conversations with her. She arranged a bus tour for us of the Ring of Kerry, and had the bus driver pick us up at the house, and drop us off there afterwards. All in all it was a wonderful time. We would stay there again.

After we spent a few hours shopping in Galway, and having to stop at one of the gas stations to dry our laundry on the way, and wanting to see the Dingle Peninsula on our way and try to see Fungee, and knowing we are supposed to check in to our B&B between 3 and 6. We had to forgo see the Dingle Peninsula on our way and drive straight to the B&B. Thought we would check in and then go to the Peninsula. We had a little trouble finding the B&B, Were given twin beds. (we were celebrating our 30th Anniversary the following day). Got there a bit after 6 and was discouraged from going to the Peninsula because it would be back tracking and would be too far. So we decided to venture in to town and grab a bite to eat and walk around. The townsfolk were less than hospitable at the restaurant and at a local pub. So we called it a night. Although Kathleen was nice and hospitable herself, the room was clean and fresh, and the breakfast was delicious. The total atmosphere of the town was discouraging from wanting to go back to it.

Kathleen was amazing! Super helpful with recommendations and gave some great advice on things to do in the area. Her place is beautiful and it truly felt like home, everything was clean and orderly! The American style breakfast option was wonderful especially after over a week of just Irish Breakfasts. The convenience of being walking distance to the town was a total game changer! Would definitely stay with Kathleen again. Thank you so much!

Kathleen was a lovely host, felt like we knew her from the first meeting. Rooms were very nice and clean and on the first level, a nice perk when hauling in the heavy luggage. Kathleen set up our tour of the Ring of Kerry and we were picked up and dropped off that the door. Walked in to town for dinner. I would recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone staying in the Killarney area.
