My wife and I stayed at Maggie O's B&B for two nights two weeks ago, prior to walking the Kerry Way, and it was the perfect start to our trip to Ireland.
As a matter of fact, I knew Maggie's B&B was going to be good when I emailed her in advance and asked how best to get from the Killarney train station to her B&B. She sent me a message back almost immediately that read .... "I will arrange a taxi to be waiting for you at the station."
I thought that was cool, so I emailed her back and asked, "how will I know which cab to take?"
Maggie replied immediately, "the taxi I will arrange for you is a dark green Volkswagen Passat, and the taxi number is T16216 which is located on the roof and the drivers name is James." Now, tell me is that first class customer service or what!?!?!
And it only got better from there.
The room we stayed in was gorgeous, neat, clean, quiet and tidy. And Maggie's breakfast is so good you won't need to eat again until dinner time! We tried her famous porridge one morning, with Bailey's Irish Cream drizzled on top, and well, let's just say I've already emailed her for the recipe.
Maggie is full of fun and energy, knows more about Killarney than the local tourism bureau and can point you in the right direction, no matter what you need.
I've given Maggie O's B&B 5 stars only because TripAdvisor won't let me give her the 6 or 7 stars she really deserves.
Stay here and you'll see why.
