Our Kearney Family group rented accommodations for 14 of us at Beaufort House, near Killarney. Our hosts were Donald and Rachel Cameron. Our two week stay in Ireland included seven days and nights at Beaufort House, where we had the most wonderful time of our lives. Our hosts were extremely helpful in assisting us in making restaurant/pub reservations, taxi and bus reservations, hiking and horse cart tours, etc. They were just like family to us, and showed us around their home, and joined us for social hour. Our whole group would love to go there again. We stayed in the cottages which suited our needs perfectly. The main house has four very large suites which would also be very suitable for couples or groups.
Absolutely wonderful stay at the Beaufort cottages for our family of nine. We booked two, a four bed and two which worked perfectly. Such a tranquil place, we felt so at ease on the first leg of our holiday. The men went fishing and caught 3 good sized trout which they enjoyed immensely. We walked into the small village of Beaufort for groceries and to the two pubs which were excellent. Donald and Rachel were always available for any questions or requests. Wish we were back there now.
We stayed in Laune Cottage, which was wonderful. The kitchen was fully stocked with anything you may need for cooking, and included some breakfast basics in the fridge, like milk, eggs, butter and jam, and some pantry items like bread, cereal and a wide variety of spices.
The beds were comfortable and plenty warm in the chilly September nights. We used the laundry, washer in our cottage and communal dryer which was a huge luxury while on vacay. We had to leave or dirty clothes with one of the B&B hostesses once which is convenant but bothersome.
The owners here are amazingly friendly and go above and beyond in making sure we had what needed. If you don't stay in the manor house, ask for a tour anyway. The history is nice.
This property has a river running right by, and you can easily walk down and fish in it.
I will make it a point to stay here on any subsequent trips I take to Ireland in the future.
My family had a wonderful time in the 4 Bedroom, 4 Bath Cottage. The living room was beautiful and the Kitchen/dining area was very nice. If you want to get away from it all this is the place to go. We saw cows outside our kitchen door. 3 Chocolate Labs greeted us every morning. We had a fire in the fireplace most nights. The grocery store is not far away so you can get the essentials for breakfast. There is no maid service which was fine by us. It is close to the river so you can take wonderful walks. The scenery was amazing. If you don't have a car you can get taxi service into Killarney. Donald and Rachel were the best!!
Stayed for 4 glorious nights with amazing hosts, Rachel and Donald. Superb accommodation and great for large parties of people. Stayed in the Laune Cottage, right on the lake, perfect for beautiful walks and getting the catch of the day for dinner. Ideally situated for driving the Ring of Kerry and on to Dingle. Can't wait to return to Beaufort House!
