“Convenient & clean”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

Easy access to everything from a walk into town, or some of the sights just a short (easy) drive away. Rosemary was very friendly and the accommodations clean and comfortable. Particularly nice for us were the fact there were two separate little sitting areas just outside the bedrooms. While one offered tea any any time of day, the other allowed our family to convene and plan without sitting on someone's bed or disturbing the entire household.

Stayed May 2014, travelled with family

Reviewed 14 September 2013

We stayed there for one night in September 2013.
The owner, Rosemary, is a very friendly and welcoming woman that makes you feel immediately like at home.
The house is very big and furnished with vintage furnitures and very nice photos of the family all around.
Rosemary and me talked a lot and she is a good listener and chatter. She even said I speak a good English and I am proud of it (as my mothertongue is Italian).
Besides that, the room reflects the same style of the house. It was big and with a third bed and a wide bathroom. Everything was cleaned and perfect.
Soap and the hairdried was available in every room as well as a very good wi-fi connection.
The breakfast, cooked by Rosemary was very tasty. My boyfriend took the Irish Breakfast and he was really full after eating it. She is a perfect cooker indeed! I also had a tasty breakfast with yoghurt, cereals, jam and toasts.
The house is situated in a silent street with no noises around, even if it's very close to the city centre.
Also, the parking is private so no problems to park the car there.
I highly recommend this bed&breakfast if you'll ever be in Killarney searching for a place to sleep: Rosemary will welcome you with a nice chat and a great breakfast the day after!

I can't say enough positive things about this B&B. Rosemary was great! She gave us a room in the back of the house so it was very quiet and peaceful. The wifi was super strong as she had a router right outside our room. There's a very short walk into town and we both felt very safe in the neighborhood. The house is set back from the main road but there is a small sign saying Oakland B&B. (don't get it confused with OAKLAWN). Breakfast was amazing and rosemary makes some delicious black pudding! I would definitely stay here if we went back to Ireland and will be recommending it to anyone I know heading to Ireland!

We spent two nights at Oaklawn and couldn't have been more pleased. Rosemary is a wonderful host and made us feel at home and welcome. She was a delight to chat with. Our room was very comfortable, and the breakfast was excellent and well-prepared. The location was just about perfect. We were able to walk into town easily for dinner and evening activities, but the location just off the main road made it very quiet. This really is the perfect spot in Killarney. We will stay here when we return.

5 of us stayed at Oaklawn for a wedding we were attending in Killarney. What a spot!! We rang ahead of arrival as we needed somewhere to get changed before the wedding. Sure enough the owner made a room up for us hours ahead of schedule to help us out. The b&b itself is in a perfect location, a 2 min walk to the town centre. The rooms couldn't have been cleaner and the owner was so friendly and helpful! I would definitely reccommend oaklawn and it will be my choice of b&b the next time I'm in Killarney!

Oaklawn is definitely a 4 star B&B and a perfect location to walk into town and enjoy the evening. Our group of 10 enjoyed the ambience and comfort of the B&B. IrishTourism, Tina O'Connor, booked this wonderful stay along with our 2 week whirlwind drive of Ireland. We also had IrishTourism book our driver and van. Wonderful stay at Oaklawn.

This B&B is a little difficult to find because it must be approached from what is more a private alley than a street. Once found it is worth the visit. The rooms are pristine, beds comfortable and service friendly and welcoming. The host offers free Wi Fi, but the plus on that is there is a reading room with big chairs by a picture window overlooking Killarney where one can read or check email! You can easily walk into town for fun or shopping. Great visit! We would go there again.
