“Best B&B in Killarney, County Kerr”
Reviewed 10 May 2009

Staying at the Countess House B&B was a wonderful experience. The hostess Rose and her family were wonderful. From the time we arrived until the time we left we had nothing but the most curteous of service. The B&B is located adjacent to the heart of downtown Killarney and is less than a five-minute walk from all the shops, restaurants and attractions in downtown area. Rose was a wonderful hostess and was of tremendous assistance to us in securing seats for a tour of the Ring of Kerry, finding us locations to dine at in the evening after we returned from our daily excursions and of helping to 'plot' our journey going forward as we left her establishment. The B&B is immaculate and has all that a traveler making their way around Ireland could expect and more for accomodations. The traditional Irish breakfasts in the mornings were to "die-for" and fortified us each day for the travels that we undertook around Killarney. I would strongly recommend staying at the Countess House B&B for any traveler who wants to stay at a great place with warm and welcoming hosts.

Rose is the owner of this family run b&b in Killarney, Ireland and she is a great hostess. Very pleasant and extremely helpful organizing taxis, bus trips, places to eat and shop. The b&b is hardly a 10 minute walk from the train station, and 5 minutes walk to the central shopping and pub areas in Killarney. The rooms are a good size with comfortable beds and clean bathrooms and clean carpets. The house itself is not that old, however, the way it is is decorated gives you the feel of an old, warm, cozy country inn. Rose's cooking was so good!! And pleanty of food, too! I travelled with my four teenagers, and they never left Rose's breakfast table hungry. We travelled to Dublin, and then London, England and our Countess House experience was the best because it was small and very comfortable. We decided you could stay in a hotel in any city anywhere in the world and it would be pretty much the same. I cannot say enough about staying in an Irish b&b like Countess House in Killarney. Our stay with Rose was better than our friend's stay in a beautiful local hotel. Killarney is a beautiful small town, very clean and everyone is so friendly with plenty to do and see. I would go back to Killarney and I would definitely stay at the Countess House again.
