Stayed here with a friend as we planned to go out in Killarney for a night. The location is great as it's a 3 minute walk from the town centre.
Check in was easy but not exactly memorable. The rooms are very out dated with old furnishings, a terrible smell of damp (dirty- not sure how to describe it but not welcoming) , a tv from 1990 with rte 1 & network 2, the shower dribbled and the wifi did not work. This should simply not be classified as a hotel.
The room was €100 for two of us so we weren't expecting the lap of luxury but a little effort would go along way. I have stayed in much nicer places in Killarney but thought a change would be nice and was very disappointed.

My family and I stayed at the Abbey Lodge for 6 nights during our Irish Holiday. The Location could not be any more perfect. We were close enough to walk (5 minutes) to the town to enjoy shopping, food, and the night life, but far enough away to escape the noise of the busy streets. The breakfasts were hot, served fast, and delicious. Perfect for on the go tourists. The room was spacious with comfortable beds, and there was always hot water. The staff could not have been more helpful. They arranged all of our tours, taxis, and went out of there way to make us feel welcome. This is truly a great place to stay.

Excellent position, right in front of one of the entrances of the Park (and a bike rental). City centre is just 5 minutes far (walking) and Abbey Lodge has free parking in a town where parking isn't easy. Our room was spacious, even if the impression is that common areas (especially the lounge) are much more refined and elegant than rooms. Good breakfast.

My wife & I spent 3 nights at Abbey Lodge during a motoring tour of S.W. Ireland in June. Very well situated just three mins from main shopping/eating area. Ample parking in grounds of the house and rooms very comfortable and of a good size. TV service poor if you want to get a weather forecast! Only 7 channels and three of these were in German! TV plug broken in wall socket. Building appeared to have “amalgamated” with next door B&B to form one large entity of about 18 bedrooms and didn’t have the personal feel of other B&Bs. Breakfasts OK – standard generic Irish but nothing special. Shower in bath not to easy to negotiate for older person.

This is a fine place a few blocks from downtown. I stayed two nights with a roommate while on a small group tour. The room felt more like a motel than a B&B in terms of layout and non-descript dated decor. Bathroom had no ventilation. Slept OK; beds rather hard and did not give that pampered feeling of our other B&Bs on the trip. Wireless reached into our room which is a big plus. The common area (sitting room) is very nice, and breakfast excellent. Very good location.

Reviewed 11 May 2013

Welcome was distanced and cool. Beds are OK, free WiFi doesn't work because the Abbey has 5 different WiFi channels which push each other out of the frequencies needed. Bathroom had poor ventilation (warning sign on the bathroom door: please shut the door during showering because our fire alarm is very sensitive) and there where cob webs on the curtains (room 18). If you travel by Range Rover, Armani luggage and wearing pearl necklaces, your luggage gets carried to your room and your coffee gets refilled by the staff during breakfast (despite the fact that its an buffet). If you travel by motorcycle, this service is not offered. The main problem: the location is to big for a cosy Inn or Bed & Breakfast, and to small to be a proper hotel. I'll suggest the Castle Inn opposite on the road.
