This place is amazing! The room was beautiful, cozy, and overlooking the mountains. The couple who own the B&B were very friendly and accommodating. We were visiting Ireland with a tour group so we had to be out early each morning. They were nice enough to leave us a packed breakfast on both days because we were too early for... More

The Chelmsford House was all of what you want in a B&B. Our room at the front of the house had great views of the Killarney National Park and the mountain range. Breakfast was great every day and you had about 9 choices to select from. Room was very clean but a little tight with my large suitcases. There was... More

We liked the quiet of the location, but also that it is possible to walk to the city centre. The Room with view of the national park was very well kept, tidy, clean and nicely decorated. Breakfast was great, as you can choose from ten dishes for every new day. The hosts are very nice and very helpful with trips... More

Louise and Pat are kind hosts, with a well-run operation. With a varied breakfast menu, you are asked to order the night before. We came in a bit late and they were very accommodating of our schedule. Check out is early (10:30), but when on holiday, it's nice to get out and see the next thing. They know Kerry and... More

We had a great time staying at Chelmsford House b&b. The location was great, close enough to the center, but far enough to be quiet and give some great views. The hosts were very pleasant and helpful and the breakfast tasty.

Louise and Pat were wonderful hosts. The breakfast was awesome! Chelmsford House was beautifully decorated with an incredible view of the mountains. During breakfast we spoke with Louise at length of where we were headed next. She had several very helpful suggestions and even helped us decide where our next destination should be. She was very accommodating and friendly.

We contacted Chelmsford House in February 2016 to book two double ensuite rooms for May 13 and 14, 2016. We were delighted to receive confirmation. Near the end of April 2016 we sent a final confirmation email to all of our pre-booked B&B's to avoid last minute confusion during our three weeks in Ireland. Chelmsford responded and again confirmed our... More

First of all, breakfast is amazing. Louise clearly loves to cook, and we (my father and I) enjoyed ordering off a menu of wonderful options each morning. Chelmsford House is on a small hill a few minutes' walk (8-10) from the city centre, affording breathtaking views of the mountains in Killarney National Park. Louise was helpful in planning a day...

Typical B&B. Mr. Griffin checked us in and very cordial and gracious. Visited some local establishments and returned and meet Mrs. Griffin. In chatting with Mrs. Griffin we told her that we had booked a tour for the Ring of Kerry and she became upset that we didn't book it through her. Her quote "you need to listen to you... More

I highly recommend this b&b, close to town and has lovely views if your room is facing the mountains. The breakfast was great and Louise was very kind. The room was nice and clean, probably the nicest one we've stayed in so far. Would highly recommend.
