Sika Lodge B & B
Ranked #12 of 143 Killarney B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 August 2013

My wife, my son and I stayed at Sika Lodge for three nights. Serena and Alan were spectacular hosts, and we were wanting for nothing. The comfort and cleanliness of our room was only outdone by Serena's phenomenal cooking (those flap jacks!!!!). The location is also spectacular. Just a few minutes from all that Killarney has to offer, and a great base for trips to the Ring of Kerry and Dingle Peninsula. We would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Very good starting point for excursions. The city is an open-minded, friendly city in Ireland.
During the stay in the house, we were invited to a glass of Irish Wisky. In the room we had a bottle of water - if you woke up from too much beer at night- very helpful. The breakfast was varied. The establishment fits upscale B & B claims. Our hosts were very friendly and interested in a chat. Thank you!

My husband and I randomly discovered this place while driving through Ireland and were more impressed with it than the Clontarf Castle Hotel in Dublin. Owners made us feel so welcome and the room was clean and comfortable. We had great breakfast in the morning. The stay was absolutely the peak of our Irish vacation!!! Highly recommend!!!

What a humbling review. We don't know what to say!! To be compared to Clontarf Castle is incredible. Thanks so much for such a lovely review. We are so glad that you stumbled upon us on that wet evening and we are so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. We hope you can return to us some day and stay even longer with us. Take Care, Serena

Sika Lodge is what happens when two people put their heart and soul into a B&B. Serena and Alan have renovated and fitted out the place beautifully and obviously have a real eye for detail. There are so many lovely little features, such as the teapot chandelier in the dining room and the gorgeous glass clock coffee table in the guest lounge. Alan was brilliant at giving us tips for things to do and places to eat and both of them made us feel very much at home here. The B&B is ideally situated for exploring Killarney, as you can walk into town in 10 minutes. To top it all, Serena is an AMAZING cook. Her pancakes were to die for.

We arrived after travelling by car from Dublin and were greeted warmly by our host. the accommodation is lovely and the breakfasts are amazing with lovely baking. the hosts provide great tips on what to see and do while in Killarney. It was a wonderful experience and definitely would recommend staying there anytime you visit Killarney.

My wife and I recently spent a night in Sika Lodge. We wouldn't normally stay in B&Bs but the excellent reviews encouraged us to give Sika Lodge a go and it definitely did not disappoint.
Our hosts, Serena and Alan,could not do enough for us and they provided some excellent suggestions for activities in the local area.
We had a lovely double room with a beautiful en suite. The shower was excellent and we both had a great nights sleep.
In the morning we were treated to a wonderful breakfast. Serena had a variety of freshly baked pastries prepared which were divine! In addition, we had a full menu of breakfast options to consider and our choices of the full Irish breakfast and pancakes were both excellent.

I would definitely recommend Sika Lodge and best of luck to Serena and Alan in the future. We will be back!!

Not only was the house and furnishings new and sparkling clean, the breakfast was terrific too. The owners are an absolute delight. Walking distance to town. Next to a beautiful park. This is definitely the place to stay in Killarney!!!
