Kathleens Country House

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 June 2014 via mobile

Our room was very nice and very clean. The house was quiet and had very nice sitting areas. Kathleen was very hospitable and very knowledgeable of the area but... Kathleen definitely has her own agenda of what she wants you to see while in Ireland. Her advice is good and we are so glad we took it in several instances. Valencia island was a wonderful trip and incredibly beautiful! Our only problem was the pasture aroma in our room. I know this was totally out of her control, but closing the windows made it a stuffy sleeping night and opening them was just not possible because of the manure smell. Breakfast was wonderful and Kathleen takes great pride in her establishment as she should.

Kathleen is a wonderful person with a wealth of knowledge to share. She recommended all of the best places to see and eat. She even told us where to go to avoid the more "touristy" areas. The grounds were beautiful, and the rooms are good. The only complaint I had was the fluctuation in water temp/pressure when taking a shower. I would definitely recommend anyone to stay here. We had a wonderful experience.

Lovely home. Beautiful well appointed rooms. Amazing library and sitting areas, with peaceful views. Kathleen and staff friendly and helpful. A little out of town, but not too far, but best to have a car. Has car parking facilities. We had trouble with showers in our rooms downstairs. Still clean and well appointed and lovely outlook, but near the kitchen and reception - a little noisy at times. but we didn't book and this was all available. Upstairs rooms larger with peaceful outlook.

Room Tip: Book and ask for upstairs, though all rooms nice

Kathleen was a fund of information with regard to best places to visit, which routes to take, restaurants etc. in the area. It would make a wonderful base for those without own transport as it's possible to book trips to the various peninsulas both full days and one half day from the guest house where you are picked up and dropped off. There might be a lot to be said for it...sit back, relax and enjoy the views!

Room Tip: Perhaps the rooms to the back are the quietest

We stayed at Kathleen's for 2 nights. We had a terrific experience! Kathleen is a wealth of information about local attractions, places to eat etc and she is such a delight! We could not have been made to feel more welcomed if we had been visiting family! If you are looking for the best accommodations in Killarney, look no further than Kathleen's. Wonderful! Terrific!

When traveling in and around Killarney, KATHLEEN'S is the place to stay. The location is convenient to all of the sightseeing places as well as the town. The B&B, from its grounds to the building are beautiful. When inside you'll find the place spotless, having large rooms and comfortable beds. It has a very nice dining room and even has a library/sitting room, which is a nice touch. Kathleen and her staff are very accommodating and work very hard to insure a pleasant stay at her place.

My husband and I stayed in Kathleen's for a couple nights and it was wonderful! She was so gracious and helpful. She gave us detailed maps and recommended some very fine places to eat. The room was wonderful! Her breakfast had so many choices to choose from. I would stay again in a heart beat!
