The location of this place is superb. We walked from the train station in the rain and it was quick and easy to find. We were not even soaked before we found it. Danny was so helpful and pleasant, even when we descended upon him with a large extended family in Ireland for a wedding, two double strollers, and many bags. We had many rooms and four noisy happy babies- he did not seem the least bit daunted. We were given a choice of rooms when we arrived and everyone seemed happy with their abode. All had ensuite bathrooms with hot water (although the water pressure was a bit weak) and plenty of towels. Our room was one of the ones facing the street- and it is a semi-busy street- and we were not bothered by traffic noise at all. The beds were comfortable with plenty of blankets and good pillows. The rooms and public areas were a little worn but spotlessly clean.
The breakfast was very filling. We thought at first that it was a continental since the cereals, toast, juice, and yogurts were there in the morning. The waitress brought coffee and tea to each guest and then began to deliver hot full Irish breakfasts to all. I think that the people who posted their dissatisfaction with the breakfast being a cold one did not wait around long enough to see the rest of it. The kitchen also provided us with wonderful gluten free sourdough bread that toasted up beautifully and was delicious. They were careful to let us know which items for breakfast were not gluten free (the puddings) and cooked our eggs as we asked (poached separately from the other eggs). We could walk very easily to the heart of town and ate at some great local places. We booked a tour ahead online with Killarney Jaunting Cars and they picked us up right at the Guest House since they were down the road. We walked to Muckross Abbey, farms, and house and toured them all. The scenery in this part of Ireland was particularly spectacular. We enjoyed our stay immensely and will be back again to Cherry Tree Guest House. Thank you Danny!
