The grounds and house are beautiful and the setting is right out of a fairy tale. The B & B is in the Killarney National Park. We chose this location as a quiet getaway. Upon our arrival, we were greeted by Bridgette, who was pleasant and very helpful. We sat down for tea, Bridgette shared her thoughts of activities we should explore in the area. We took her advice and visited Muckross House and the Traditional Farms including a Jaunting car ride. We also drove out the Dingle Peninsula and enjoyed dinner at John Benny’s pub, also recommended by Bridgette.
Mary and John were wonderful hosts and the breakfast was very tasty and plentiful. We even celebrated my father’s birthday at breakfast with a birthday cupcake.
I highly recommend the Friars Glenn for everyone visiting Killarney, Ireland.
We hope to return to Friars Glenn in the future!
