“The VERY Best B&B that there is!”
Reviewed 9 March 2012

Our experience here was the bar by which ALL other B&B's will need to be measured. A sunset glass of wine in their sunroom with some homemade Guiness bread, followed by far-and-away the greatest breakfast we have ever had. Try the smoked salmon and eggs, truly unforgettable; although the porridge is to die for. We will be back if we are EVER in Ireland again to enjoy our time with Maureen.

Room Tip: Take anything you can get to stay here.

We just can recommend the Shraheen House. The furnishing and our rooms were very stylish and comfortable. The Breakfast was very delicious. Every morning, we had self baked cakes on our table.

The owners were very, very helpful by a medical emergency late evening. Thank you very much. They gave us good tips for daytrips after breakfast. We feel very good at this place and had some unforgettable days in Killarney.

Maureen and her husband were wonderful hosts during our three days in Killarney. Rooms were immaculate, breakfasts were out of this world (particularly the porridge) and both hosts provided great suggestions of where to visit in the Killarney area (don't miss the Dingle Peninsula and the Ring of Kerry).

Would highly recommend the Shraheen House to visitors in the Killarney area.

We stayed at Shraheen for the second straight year. This by far is one of the best kept secret for lodging in Killarney--it is absolutely the best B&B in Ireland. Maureen and her husband run an amazing house. Everything about Shraheen is 5 star--If you are looking for a place to stay and be completely spolied--this is it. From the beautiful furnishings, lovely grounds, and a breakfast to die for, this place has it all. You feel like family when you stay here, not like a guest. We will not stay anywhere else whenever travels bring us back to Killarney.

Room Tip: Ever room is excellent!!

My wife, daughter, and I spent four nights at the Shraheen House in July 2011, and we were delighted.

The beds were comfortable, the furniture of the rooms functional and modern, and the bathroom had modern fixtures. Our room looked out on a pretty, serene garden.

Breakfast each morning was a treat. Three kinds of homemade baked bread and other traditional Irish baked goodies were provided as we awaited our breakfast to be prepared. I ate the full Irish breakfast, a wonderful meal, while wife and daughter ate more sensibly. The abundant food was an excellent quality and its presentation was amazing, worthy of a fine restaurant in New York.

The location is nice and quiet and is off of a thoroughfare that connects with main roads. It only takes a few minutes to get to the middle of Killarney, but you can sleep without the noise of the revelers. Killarney has many restaurants, shops, and pubs and plenty of public parking.

It is a great base for exploring the Killarney National Forest and the peninsulas like Dingle.

The folks that run the place are very pleasant and helpful, and it is clear that they take great pride in providing a nice accommodation for the traveler.

Shraheen House would have to be considered one of our most memorable B&B experiences. Maureen is a most capable host who conjures up magnificent breakfasts with her own baking variations each day. Our lodging was tastefully decorated with artistic flair and all of this comes with the warm Irish hospitality, clever humour and great advice on the local area.
