Larkinley Lodge is absolutely wonderful. I stayed here for two nights while on a trip to Ireland to celebrate a friend's birthday. Our room was lovely--modern, warm, and inviting. Spotlessly clean and such a great place to come back to after a day exploring. The location is top-notch, as well. It's just a five minute walk to the heart of Killarney and tons of restaurants, bars, and shops. If you are a light sleeper, have no fear. Even though it's within walking distance of downtown, the lodge is in a very quiet area--you'll have no problems falling asleep in your comfortable, peaceful room.
Toni and Danny are fabulous hosts. Friendly, funny, and amazingly helpful. Each morning, after serving up a delicious breakfast, they will gladly help you with advice for your day--including maps and directions. They go above and beyond to make sure that each of their guests is happy.
In fact, while I was there, I was on the second week of a bad cough. On Sunday evening, after a day driving the Dingle Peninsula, I became worried that I might be developing something worse. I asked Toni if she thought it would be possible for me to see a doctor or nurse without visiting in the ER. Within minutes, she had called a medical service and had me on the phone with a nurse who offered me an immediate appointment with a local doctor! At 8pm. On a Sunday night. That would have been helpful enough--but Toni then offered to drive ahead of us to the doctor's office so we wouldn't get lost, plus pointed out how to get to the pharmacy in case medication was needed. When I returned, they stored the medication I was given in the refrigerator for me. I was just amazed by the care and the warmth that Toni and Danny offer to their guests. Thank you so much, Toni and Danny!
I hope to return to Killarney one day and would not even consider staying anyplace else. Larkinley Lodge is simply excellent.
