We were traveling through Ireland and staying at hotels. Kathleen's Country House was the one exception and we are very happy it was. We were greeted by Kathleen herself. She made us feel welcome and gave us loads of information on things to do in the area. The room and the entire building was spotlessly clear. We even asked one... More

This hotel was fantastic! The grounds are beautiful, location is perfect as it is a short drive from town. Kathleen is incredibly welcoming and helpful as she made many recommendations in regards to things to do and see. She even recommend a lovely Italian restaurant which turned out to have gorgeous food. The room was lovely and the bed was... More

Kathleen herself greets you in the reception area and is wonderful to chat with. She not only remembered our names the next morning during breakfast service, but we noticed that she greeted every single other person, even the children by name. I want to give the B&B full marks, but in truth the stay was not perfect. We had room... More

Kathleen's country house is beautifully furnished, decorated and spotlessly clean, the gardens around it are beautiful. The breakfast was amazing with excellent service in the lovely breakfast room. Kathleen the owner was so friendly, welcoming and very helpful with places to visit. We would highly recommend Kathleen's and would definitely go back there.

You stay at Kathleen's for Kathleen. You are greeted by her upon arrival and whether you stay for 1 or several evenings, you have a new friend. She knows everyone in town and almost every taxi driver. She is the original Trip Advisor for Killarney. It is like staying with a good relative. I toured with my mother (72yo) in... More

Kathleen's Country House was the peaceful refuge which we needed after our tiring trip around Europe. We were greeted with a warm welcome ,given a very clean and comfy room and helpful information on what to do when visiting Killarney National Park. I would recommend this place to anyone traveling through the area.

We stayed at Kathleen's for three nights - Kathleen is a wealth of knowledge. Each morning she'd provide us with a map of our day trip destination and explain the in's and out's of the trip, which was very helpful. The location of the inn is very convenient - you can get to the hub of Killarney within a five... More

Cathleen is a wonderful host . NOTHING is too much trouble, she has all the solutions. We had a fantastic stay. We travel by motorbike & my zip in my leathers broke Cathleen was very helpful. Great taxi services too as its a bit too far to walk in to town for a comfy night out.

Kathleen herself is fabulous, she greets you with great enthusiasm and friendliness. The rooms are slightly dated but incredibly clean. The breakfast is great, cooked to order, not a buffet and is only served between 8 and 9.30, which is fine if you know. This is not a hotel but I felt welcomed to stay in the hotel during the...

Everything about this B&B is fantastic; the house is impeccably decorated, with hand-selected art on the walls and tons of small nooks in which sit and relax. The food is delicious and the rooms clean and cosy. What really sets Kathleen's Country House apart from other places, though, is the hospitality. The staff is warm and helpful and Kathleen is...
