Reviewed 3 July 2014

The room was beautiful! Especially the bathroom! Sheila was warm and welcoming and very accommodating! We had a beautiful view of the National Park from our front window as well as the field of cows out front. It was quiet all night and we were finally able to get a great night of rest! Breakfast was delicious and filling.

Room Tip: Try and shoot for a front of house facing room. Great view and quiet

We stayed here for 2nights on 5 and 6th of July. The rooms were very clean and well decorated. Location is excellent as there is little traffic noise and yet it is close enough to centre. The owner did an early breakfast for us as a special request.

Shepherds Lodge is conveniently located on a quiet side street just outside bustling, touristy downtown Killarney. In fact, it is just five minutes from beautiful Killarney National Park. The property itself isn't especially fancy, but it is comfortable in a "feels like home" sort of way. The owners are exceptionally friendly and knowledgeable and do their best to ensure you have a pleasant stay. We highly recommend Shepherds Lodge to other travelers visiting KIllarney and the beautiful Ring of Kerry!

stayed at the shepherds lodge in june with my partner, we booked it on the net under special offer. when we arrived we were greeted by sheila. she was a very welcoming host and advised us on how to spend our time while visiting killarney, this included tours, entertainment and eating out. our room was spacious with very nice decor, with free internet connection. i had the full irish breakfast for the 2 mornings we stayed and my partner had the poached eggs!!!! said they were delicious, i really liked the home made friut bars and the fruit bread, i took some with me for my lunch!!!.
we took a tour on the horse & carriage with martin who is sheila's husband he gave us a excel tour of the park and it wasn't expensive, we took some fab photos and learned alot about the history about the area.
a taxis was arranged for us when we decided to hit the town to experience the night life!!!
killarney is a great place to visit, full of nice places to see, great night life ans friendly people. the shepherds lodge is in a nice quite location but also convienent to all the "must visit places". we meet some other guest here who we made friends with and shared some common interest.

The Shepherd's Lodge may be a little outside of Killarney but that was what suited me perfect. You will a walk of approximately 20min to the towncenter of Killarney but what is far more important that it's only a 5min walk to the entrance of the beautiful Killarney National Park. From there on you have an amazing route to the Muckross Abbey, the Muckross House, the Torc waterfalls and all the other beautiful sights located on the middle lake and the outer lakes.

The Shepherd's Lodge itself is run by Sheila and her family. Sheila is your personal host and it was a very warm welcoming and stay. The house itself just smells adorable. I'm always happy if I wake up and have a smell of flowers in my nose. The room and the shower were very clean and although I had a shared bathroom there did never - in 3 nights & days - occure any hygiene problem.

The only maybe not so amazing part was the breakfast - I'd have enjoyed some baked beans coming along with my irish breakfast but therefore you'll get black & white pudding.

For the high season the price was OK, I'd say.

What is great as well is that Sheila can get you all the informations and also do all your tour bookings, if U like her to.

To sum it up - it was a nearly perfect stay. I really had a pleasant time and would recommend this B&B!
