I will try to keep this brief as really I will just be echoing the comments by other reviewers. We had a fab 2 night stay and would love to go back someday. The room was immaculate, large and comfortable. Mary was so helpful to everyone and had a knack of making you feel relaxed the minute you walked through the door. We had plenty of advice on where to go in the area and she kindly arranged a taxi into town for us to have a night out. We ate and were entertained at Molly Darcy's pub on our first evening which was a short walk along the end of the lane. A torch would have been useful for the trip home as there was no footpath, but luckily the road was quiet. This was a very touristy pub but we enjoyed the experience nevertheless and the food was good. The house and grounds of Friars's Glen were beautifully maintained and breakfast was perfect. Of course I must mention the lovely Bridget who also made us feel welcome and looked after us with some delicious homemade cake and tea. I hope you had a fab anniversary in November Bridget :-) . You won't be disappointed if you stop here and though I like to try new places, I would make this my first choice in Killarney as I couldn't fault it in any way. Thank you everyone at Friar's Glen.
