“A decent choice, but not worth the price”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

Located near town but off a quiet side street (very helpful in a hotel with no air conditioning), this hotel was good for someone like me who was exploring the national park but not so good for those who wanted to get into town, as parking downtown is a extremely difficult in high season. This a nice enough establishment but I found it overly priced compared to other places I stayed during my month-long Ireland trip. I upgraded to a Deluxe King Room that was nowhere near as nice as photos led me to believe. The carpets in particular were tired and worn, and overall the room had a very dark feel to it (although the bathroom was lovely, large, and bright). The room was also extremely warm because only the small tops of the windows opened, so I was very uncomfortable. Good breakfasts, though, and generally helpful staff; Joan was an absolute delight, but the other receptionist was not particularly friendly or welcoming. Overall, a decent stay, but I will not be back.

We stayed here in June 2014 & it was by far my favorite of all the places we stayed. I was one in a group tour of 30 & were greeted by the owner upon arrival, were assigned out rooms and out again touring the lovely city in no time at all. The room were beautiful, clean & spacious. No dinner service, which was fine with us as we ventured into the city center to eat, ( a short walk).

Room Tip: No wifi in room, but accessable in downstairs sitting room. Could purchase it if you wanted it in yo...

We stayed here for the ring of Kerry Cycle in July 2014 and were met by the owner of the property at 5.20am with a smile and couldn't have been more helpful. The rooms were excellent and spacious and very well maintained. Its walking distance to the main street for restaurants and shops.

Breakfast was freshly cooked.

We stayed for two nights in a Deluxe room at Earls Court House. It was an easy 10 minute walk into Killarney, and we didn't have to fight traffic and find a parking spot. The reception desk was very helpful in giving suggestions on where to eat and what to see in the area. The room was spacious, and located on the back of the hotel. One drawback was that the afternoon sun came in the window, and made it a little warm, so we had to open the door for a bit to let the air circulate. The decor was very nice, the bed was comfortable, the breakfast was excellent and included a cold buffet along with a choice of cooked foods. This might sound weird, but I really enjoyed the porridge (oatmeal); it tasted like the oats were cooked in cream and not water. (Why would you eat oatmeal when there are other choices? Full Irish breakfasts are really filling.....) The bathroom had a shower and a tub; the water pressure was excellent. Between 3 and 5 every day, they offer pastries, coffee, and tea in the common room. You can order wine and snacks sent to your room during the day. There is a really good restaurant (Kayne's) right around the corner that's a 2 minute walk.
I will stay here again if I'm ever in Killarney.

This place is a great place to stay. We were upgraded to a suite as a thank you for returning again. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The breakfasts were wonderful. The staff is very helpful. The location is very convenient to the city of Killarney and to the Ring of Kerry and other sites such as the Muckross House and Gardens.

Room Tip: The suite was very comfortable after a long day of activities.

A nice B&B just outside Killarney in a nice quiet room. We had a lovely room with baloney and spacious bathroom. Sadly no evening meal provided so we had to walk into the town both nights. There were plenty of places to eat there.

Room Tip: Pay more for a balcony

Spent June 18-22 at Earls Court in a family room. Great size for 2 adults and two children age 12 & 18. Enjoyed breakfast each morning. Most helpful suggestions on our 3 main road trips which included Killarney National Park (wife's favorite was Ross Castle and boat trip to Innisfallen Island). Also very nice suggestions for our day trip to Ring of Kerry and Dingle Peninsula. Family would definitely stay here again.
