My friend and I loved staying here two nights. Maureen and her daughter were accommodating and helpful with finding day excursions we had in mind. Maureen even got out a map to show us how to get into the town of Kilarney to shop. The grounds are beautiful and peaceful and breakfast was delicious each morning.

This was a great B&B! We were travelling with our two sons age 2 & 3 and they absolutely loved the sheep, horses and playground in the beautiful yard. When they were being a handful, Mrs. O'Donovan and her daughter gave them some toys to play with and they couldn't have been better hosts. Aside from the beautiful house and clean rooms the location was perfect, being right in Killarney National Park and a short drive from downtown Killarney. I would highly recommend this B&B and we will definitely be staying there again on our next trip to Ireland!!

The place was beautiful and the room was spacious. They were very helpful and they let us go to the stables and touch and pet the horses. We loved it there and it was only a 5 min drive from town and the National Park. The castle grounds are always open (the exterior) and it is only a 5 min drives from their place. The breakfast was good and had a variety. I would definitely return and stay there. The hosts were very friendly and were very helpful.
