The Deakin's on MountainView
Ranked #1 of 1 Killaloe B&B and Inns
Reviewed 17 August 2014

We arrived late but it was not a problem for the Deakins. They went out of their way to help make sure our stay was trouble free. Breakfasts were lovely and our room, which was a downstairs suite, was perfect. Every morning she would offer to replace out towels and give us new ones. My husband and son were fishing and came in late several times as well and Mary Helen was helpful in finding restaurants that stayed open later. Don was wonderful talking about the maple sugar trees and the history of the area and his farm. They are both fascinating people and go out of their way to make you feel at home. Their fresh farm veggies are great-very inspiring here. We were here for 5 nights and loved every minute.

You and your family were easy guests, Susan. We enjoyed your company, especially your knack at conversation on a wide range of topics. Thank you for your gift of the watercolour of our flower garden. We would be delighted to have you visit us again in the future.

Amazing! Myself, husband and three boys have stayed at the Deakin's last summer and again this year for three nights and it was all lovely. The food, hosts, bed, and linens were all impeccable. We're not sure if the Deakin's usually take children but we made sure they were on their best behavior and Mary Helen treated them so nicely. Both Don and Mary Helen are welcoming, easy to talk to and attentive to our needs to make our stay comfortable.I highly recommend Deakin's and look forward to staying there again next summer!

Thank you for your endorsement of the Deakins. We’re glad that you found our suite suited to your family.’s needs. We do enjoy the boys (So many questions!) … and they are well behaved –including your oldest who took it upon himself to help clear the breakfast table. We look forward to your next visit.

It's easy to see that the Deakins love their country environment and love to share it with guests! Accommodations exceptionally comfortable and clean. Breakfast of abundance, and easily "the meal of the day" with delicious options for every diet and preference. I stayed here 3 nights and visited camping family nearby during the day - best idea ever. Plenty of natural feasts for the spirit in this quiet retreat.

Room Tip: Wi-Fi was too weak to access in bedrooms, but they were in the process of rectifying this minor prob...

I stayed 2 nights with my Mom. We were up for a wedding. The place was easy to find and we were welcomed (quietly) at the door even though we were much later than expected. The breakfasts were delicious and filling with homemade jams, selection of good breads, coffee and a breakfast entree. Great conversation with other guests around the table and Mary Helen shared lots about the area, current and past. Rooms very clean. I'm certain a return visit will happen soon.

Room Tip: The 2 bedroom suite with sitting room provided privacy and was very roomy.

i recently spent 3 nights at The Deakin's on Mountainview. Our host, Mary Helen is simply delightful! She's personable, friendly and full of good advice about the region. I'd definitely return for more of the excellent breakfasts and and enjoyable conversation.
Our room was clean and well appointed. The bed was comfortable and we felt completely "at home". It's obvious that the Deakin's take a great deal of pride in their home and in offering such a warm welcome to travellers.

We spent one night a the Deakins in Killaloe to attend a wedding. We had a very clean room with a hand made quilt which I loved. Breakfast was spectacular and we left very full. Beautiful property and very enjoyable. Lovely home. Brenda & Bill

The Deakin's B and B is set out in the country, on lots of land, so if you like to walk and get some fresh air, or even just stay in and read a book. I had a wonderful time there, great people and wonderful food! Thank you so much for such a great experience.
