We cannot say enough good things about the Loft at the Priory and about its owners, Tim and Bernadette. It was a wonderful home away from home for the week we stayed in September 2011.
The house itself is beautiful, roomy, and well appointed. Our party had 3 adults plus two young children, and we had more than enough room, both inside and out, plus the addition of the baby cot was very welcome. The kitchen had anything we could have wanted, including plates for the kids, and we thoroughly enjoyed arriving to a basket of Bernadette's scones. Really a lovely touch. Another big hit was the steam shower in the main bathroom; what a treat that was!
Our focus was largely on kid-friendly activities and events, and the owners were very helpful with suggestions, singling out family-friendly restaurants not only in Killarney but in points all around County Kerry including lesser-known beaches and driving routes. And the house really is ideally situated, just a quick jaunt over to Ross Castle and Killarney National Park and so close to the main part of town as well.
The Loft is joined to the main Priory house, with a courtyard shared between the property, and we found this a lovely feature; we could have company if we wished it, but otherwise it was very quiet and idyllic.
Book it; you won't be disappointed. We would go back in a heartbeat.
