Our family stayed 3 nights and were welcomed and made feel really welcome throughout our stay. David went out of his way to advise on local beaches and the breakfast was fresh large and tasty. The driveway up to house is special as is the views. Thanks for a memorable stay ! John and gang

Had a lovely 1 night stay at Barrow house. Room was clean with complimentary fruit. Bed was very comfortable although bathroom could have been a little cleaner. Toothpaste on taps. All you can eat breakfast was great with good coffee and company. Really enjoyed our stay and David the owner was very helpful and full of local knowledge.

Funny how it took them 3 months to figure that out. This left us scrambling at the last minute to find alternatives, which is completely unacceptable. Barrow House provided... More

Barrow House was the best place we stayed in Ireland. About a 12-minute drive from Tralee. Very close to Tralee Golf Club and a cute little beach. Loved the very large room and large bath with a power shower! Hard to find a power shower in Ireland. The room was only E125.00 per night and that was for three of... More
