Meet your host…

Julia O'Connor

I have been in the hospitality business since 1991 and I do enjoy meeting people and engaging in conversation. During the winter months I do a lot of walking nearby. I've also walked abroad; Grand Cayon in the U.S., Matchu Pitchu, South America, las Alpujarras, Spain and Brittany, France. I also cycle, I've completed the Ring of Kerry, cycled in Poland and France. I also cook and enjoy having people for dinner. When totally relaxed I enjoy reading and am a member of the local book club.

Killarney Road

In a serene rural setting upon an acre of mature gardens, An Bruachan (meaning "little brook" in Irish) is a picturesque haven in beautiful County Kerry. Guests can unwind in queen-size beds, wake up to breathtaking river views and enjoy complimentary tea/coffee on arrival.

Just 1km from the heritage town of Kenmare, guests can enjoy restaurants, art galleries, golf, horse riding and fishing. An Bruachan is an excellent base for tours of the Ring of Kerry and Beara Peninsula.

We loved staying at An Bruachan and regret that we only were able to stay one night! The room was wonderful, the garden views were grand, and we loved the town of Kenmare! Our hostess was very friendly and breakfast was yummy, too!

We had a lovely 2 night stay. Ethna was our very gracious host. The room was great, although we couldn't get the tv to work, and the breakfast selection was fresh & delicious.

Enjoyed the warm hospitality of Julia and her staff,the comfortable clean rooms,the nice setting and location and the generous breakfast-especially the great pancakes! Stayed with our 2 teens for 3 nights-great location for day trips. All agreed - this was our best b&b&b experience in Ireland!

Julia's place was fabulous! The location was superb. We were able to see downtown Kenmare and walk home within 5 minutes. Julia made us feel at home in her quaint B & B while we also enjoyed her lovely blooming gardens and gentle babbling brook. Her breakfast omelette, coffee and morning tea were the best in town! Perfect location for Killarney National Park and the Ring of Kerry.

We stayed at Au Bruachan for two nights in mid-June, and were very pleased with the lovely room, the setting, the proximity to Kenmare., and the hospitality provided by Julia and her staff. I regret that I do not remember the name of the delightful lady who served our wonderful breakfasts and provided us with very good travel advice, but she was very enjoyable to talk to. We should have taken more advantage of the setting along the beautiful little brook in back (wine and cheese at the picnic table?), but were too busy for our own good traveling the Ring of Kerry, and enjoying the pubs and music of Kenmare.
