“Wonderful host”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2013

We were a group of 8 who had 2 twin rooms and a family room. Mary could not have been more accommodating. We had a late addition on our trip and she moved an extra twin bed into the family room which was still very roomy. We stayed for 2 nights in comfortable, CLEAN, rooms. The breakfasts were tasty. She drove us downtown for a night out, and actually drove us to a hardware store so we could buy something that we couldn't find in the states. She immediately made all of us feel like family. The common living room area was beautiful and comfortable. At the end of the stay, after we had checked out, she actually went out to Ross Castle where she knew we were going, to bring some medicine that my nephew forgot to us. Thanks for everything Mary.

We had a wonderful stay with Mary in Killarney. About a 10-15 minute walk into town and easy access to main roads/National Park. The bedroom and bathroom were HUGE and very comfortable and the breakfast each morning was delicious. Mary was very accommodating, helping to advise between Kerry and Dingle (decision was made based on weather- Dingle won and it was amazing!!) and let us have breakfast early before leaving for the airport. Thank you Mary!

Stayed here for two nights when my friend came to visit me in Ireland. Our room was HUGE with a pressure shower (these are not so common in Irish homes) and very clean. Mary was very warm and welcoming, and immediately recommended things to do and see in Killarney and Kerry. Breakfast was super yummy and her homemade scones in particular! She even advised us when we were leaving to take a scenic route we wouldn't have known about if not for her. Her house is slightly farther out from city center (maybe a 10 minute walk) but her hospitality is totally worth it.

Great stay for 3 nights at the end of April.Very large bedroom & bathroom,access to the entire property,including the backyard,which most B&B's do not afford you.Cooked breakfast was excellent and a great start to the day.Mary and her lovely daughter,Eva are the 3 W's of Killarney, Wonderful,Warm & Welcoming.My wife became ill with the vomit bug and Mary set up an appointment with a local doctor and piloted us to the clinic.If she had not done so, we would never have found it.I am most greatful to her,for this very kind act,but this is the type of person she is and she never stopped worrying for my wife.My wife was much better the next day to continue our holiday.Mary has been a tour guide before she started this venture,so her advice on all the sights in Killarney and for that matter the whole of Ireland is incredible.When I return to Ireland I will stay wherever Mary has accommodation.

Room Tip: Great choice of rooms.Upstairs if your fit and downstairs if you have mobility problems.The other B...

Spent three nights here and could easily stayed longer. Bedroom was large with a massive bed and the bathroom was huge. Very well presented and perfectly clean. Host Mary was really helpful and very knowledgeable on all the local places of interest and helped us to manage our time and find the best restaurants. Good location, just a short walk into the town centre.

I stayed here at the start of December while in Killarney on business, Mary runs a very warm and friendly guess house, the room was as good as any hotel I have stayed in and Mary made me feel very welcome.
