“Simple accommodation, great value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2014

We were a party of 4 guys who came because of the price and the promise of breakfast. And the manager/owner/cook did a terrific job as our host and guide; he was very open-minded and attentive to our requests and questions and cooked us a simple yet plentiful breakfast (he asked if we wanted seconds, and dished up right before us). All in all a nice stay and a helpful manager.

This was the first B&B we stayed in on our trip around Ireland in Sept, and though it seemed reasonably priced I now realise that after staying in 7 other B&Bs and hotels that I paid the same price for far superior accommodation. The room was old fashioned, with old fashioned covers, the bathroom was fine, the heating was off and we were cold. The room was very small. Breakfast was fine, but I didn't get any black and white pudding with my Irish trad, breakfast. There was no woman about, maybe that was the reason the man was a bit glum.

We stayed in this accomodation simply for the price as we were on a budget, thinking it was great value. however when we arrived in killarney we realised that a lot of the b and b's, even the ones in the heart of the town were the same price, breakfast was an extra seven euro. The owner was extremely rude, practically grabbed the money off us, the rooms were extremely basic and cramped, the bathroom was tiny. i wouldn't recommend any one to stay here, which is a pity as i've stayed in Killarney many many times and always had a great experience.

We stayed 3 nights in Killarney. All of them at Wayside. The owner was just a delight! He helped us with any questions we had about where to go and what to do! Also town is just a few mins away! It's the perfect location and price! Oh and the breakfast was made to order with care by him every am! It was the best!

We stayed here for two nights in july. looks tiny from the front but goes way back. the owner was lovely, the room was clean & comfortable, breakfast was good & location was perfect as we were going to a show in the gleneagle hotel which is only a 5min walk away.
we have been to killarney several times but it was our first time to stay here. we made sure to take a card when leaving as we will def be staying here on any future visits. price was good too at €30 each including breakfast or €25 without.

we were going to dingle one of the days we were there & the owner told us about a place a bit further on called slea head. he said that if we were going as far as dingle it would be a sin not to go the extra bit. Oh my god am i glad we took his advise. it truly was the highlight of the trip. unbelievable scenery & the most beautiful little quiet beach i have ever seen in this country. if we had stayed anywhere else we wouldnt have got to seen it so we have that to thank him for too

My partner and I recently travelled to Killarney for a weekend away and booked into Wayside bed and breakfast. On arrival the owner was very unfriendly and did not make us feel welcome in any way! The rooms are very basic, which generally would not bother me, however, the sheets were dirty, the room was freezing, there was no toilet paper in the bathroom, the handle of the door was falling off, there was constantly noise in the house. It was just awful! My partner and I were charged €170 euros when checking out despite being quoted €140 euros on arrival (even though this did not include breakfast!!!). As we had arrived slightly late on the saturday night, approx. 7.30pm, the owner had charged the first night to our credit card (despite the fact that there was no specified check in times). Upon checking out we went to pay the remainder of the bill in cash which was €70 but he took €100 euros from my partner and would not give him back any change stating that he thought we had people in our room!!! It was a complete nightmare! It wasn't the money that he had taken from us that upset us it was the principle of the matter! He was extremely rude and treated us very badly, ignoring us when we asked for an explanation! We asked him had he proof of the assumptions he was making but he just shook his head and said I have a feeling. This man is out for what ever money he can get. I have travelled to numerous countries and stayed in many places but nothing like this has ever happened!! It was the worst bed and breakfast I have ever stayed in and I would rather sleep in a tent than go back there again!
