“Feels like home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

There are so many good things to say - don't know where to start. The owners are very nice and welcoming. They will make you feel like home from the start. The room was big, light and tidy and the bathroom was also big and clean. On each floor is a fridge, where you can put your own food and they also offer water bottles for your own use. They have a big living room with a TV and newspapers, where you can relax a little bit. The breakfast was the best I had on our trip. You could choose between a full irish breakfast or some cheese, ham, salmon, cereal, yogurt or you can also have all together. They have good coffee, a range of tea and juices. The owner also make some specials, if you wish for something special. The house is big and also has a big garden. It is at a main road, but the windows keep all the noise away. The B&B is close to city Killarney, National Parks and the Ring of Kerry. Even if there is no street number, you can find the B&B easily on the main road. They have a big sign, so you cannot miss it. I would highly recommend this B&B to anyone (Family, couples, groups or people who travel alone). The stay there was just perfect!

Our room was clean and comfy and Peter was such a fantastic host. Echoing previous comments of how helpful Peter is with luggage, among other things (we were desperate to do laundry!). Breakfasts were great. Location is easy to find - we had a car - plenty of parking.

Peter was a great guy and drive us into town. The breakfast was incredible and the interior was really cozy. It's five minutes from town and close to the ring of Kerry. We highly recommend it, it was a lovely stay!

Peter, the owner, is just lovely, insisting on carrying in our bags (despite our protestations). He runs a clean and cozy establishment with all the amenities one could possibly require: a wide array of hair dryers and straighteners, cribs for families with children, fridges for food storage, and a wide array of overstuffed couches and arm chairs for lounging. We were warm and toasty both nights in our soft beds, and enjoyed delicious breakfasts in the mornings. Peter was full of helpful advice for touring not only the Killarney area but for our journey north as well. You will NOT regret any time spent here!!!

Firstly Peter is a pure gentleman, very kind and friendly. Wouldn't hear of us getting a taxi in to town, he drove us in and offered to collect us again that night. The house itself is huge and the rooms are very spacious with couches and big comfy chairs. Everywhere was spotless and the breakfast was very tasty (cooked by Peter) and loads of it. I loved how homely it felt there with the lovely fireplaces and seating. Great value for money and literally five minute drive from town.

Room Tip: Room number nine sleeps four and has a huge jacussi bath and a log fire stove .....so cosy, great fa...

Mr Kelehan and his staff keep a very clean and comfortable home, excellent breakfast, great conversation in the living room after returning from dinner. He was great with local knowledge and tips to avoid the tour buses on the Ring of Kerry.

A very comfortable spacious room though some of the furniture has seen better days. Peter welcomed us, offered tea on arrival and had a warm fire going when we arrived ( November) He was so kind and will offer to drive you into Killlarney as it is a little way out of town, too far to walk. Not only did he drive us in, but picked us up ! Breakfast is hearty and the service so friendly. A lovely stay.

Room Tip: The house is set back from the main road out of town so if you are a light sleeper and your trip is...
