Here we learned the real meaning of B&B - what we got was a bed and breakfast. There were no amenities - no shampoo, soap, lotion or chairs. The room was small and bare. The only saving grace was the location. Just a short walk to city centre. Maybe if you had a bunch of kids and need to sleep... More

We stayed last weekend at the Countess House B&B in Killarney. Excellent accommodations, affordable for the great quality. We were 2 couples visiting Ireland for the first time and spent 3 days in Killarney (arriving by Bus). It is a short walk from the bus and rail stations and to the town center (they have good private parking though if... More

Booked the B&B hotel with our 4 groups. All of us were satisfied with the quality of service and also their kind and warm support. It is located at very convenient location, close to downtown. We definitely recommend this hotel for your stay.

We've been in this bed and breakfast in September. The owners are really welcoming and friendly. They also have a car parking, perfect specially because you can easy reach the center of Killarney in 5 minutes by walk. The room are clean and breakfast delicious!

If you are looking for a traditional Irish B&B this is not it. This is more like a small hotel. Whilst the staff were friendly enough you felt like they were just doing their job and there wasn't a personal feel to the place. The rooms are small, but clean and the two we had were well maintained. The breakfast... More

I booked a double room (15), and although I felt the overall experience was good, with a lovely breakfast, I felt cramped in the room. Close to town, and friendly experience. The landlady kindly let me leave the car at BnB for a couple of hours on day I left, so I could venture into town for a look before... More
