“Comfortable, modern, spotless and friendly”
Reviewed 16 October 2013

We happened upon Larkinley completely by chance, not having done any research on places to stay for our one night in Killarney - it was a very lucky find! Our en-suite room was very comfortable, clean and modern. Cooked breakfast was made to order and very good, with a decent continental selection too. The smart breakfast room doubles as a small lounge at other times, so you have somewhere to sit and make a cup of tea rather than just being in your room. Toni and Danny were lovely and extremely helpful, giving us very useful and welcome advice on our onward travel plans. Larkinley has all of the necessary comforts of a small hotel, but with the added warmth and personal touches of a guesthouse. Highly recommended!

I had to write a review right away of this wonderful B&B! We were warmly greeted by Toni and she took our breakfast order for the next day and brought two weary travelers tea and cake. I was pleasantly surprised by the large and charming room. This is not a kitschy, quaint B&B but rather quite elegant. Breakfast was excellent with many choices. I really wanted a place that was in walking distance of town and the lodge is a very short comfortable walk. The best part of LL however are the wonderful owners. Toni and Danny made us feel welcome and at home. They were available to answer all of our many questions and give us advice and directions as needed -- we hated to leave after 3 days! Toni and Danny felt like friends by the time we left....we will miss you and the wonderful town of Killarney!! PS If you are a walker, don't miss Killarney National Park just outside of town. It is truly a gem. My husband was going to play golf at Ballybunion but played 36 holes at Killarney Golf and Fishing Club instead. There are two 18 hole courses there and the Killeen course has been the sight of several Irish opens. It is only 7 minutes from town (Ballybunion is over an hour drive). He was very glad he made the choice!

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.

We have never stayed in a B&B as well appointed or as luxurious as Larkinley Lodge. Everything is of the finest quality and has been chosen with care to reflect the excellent taste of our hostess Toni. Situated very close to downtown Killarney yet far enough away as to provide a peaceful night, Larkinley has the best of both worlds. The food matches the decor and, with one small exception, is excellent. The one tiny flaw, and it is indeed a tiny one Toni, is that you put too much baking powder in your scones. Two tsp. at most would be good.

Our hosts were wonderful and made us feel very welcome. We would go back in a heartbeat....and indeed we will be back!

Toni was a very gracious hostess and made us feel right at home. She served us tea when we arrived and the full breakfast was delicious. Our room was quiet, comfortable and spotless. We were there in October 2011 and still talk about our wonderful memory.

We had a wonderful stay at Larkinley. The rooms surprisingly huge for a B&B. The inn is relatively new, and Toni is a wonderful innkeeper. She went the extra mile when we came back from the Gap of Dunloe boat ride drenched to the bone. She made sure that our soaking clothes were put in the drying closet, and she heated up the tea kettle immediately. We can't say enough!
