Pauline has got a gorgeous establishment and takes care of her guests as if they were her own family. I'm sad we only got to stay one evening instead of 2 or 3 because it was just so comfortable, warm and inviting. In old Ireland there was this idea of those who owned establishments like inns, hotels, pubs, hostels being...

It's a pity this website can only award 5 stars and this place already achieves that. Compared to other places I've stayed this deserves much more. Lovely comfortable quiet rooms. Great breakfast and lovely host. Pauline knows everything, what to do, where to eat, where to go, she is a font of information. Thanks for everything, see you again.

My mom, fiancé and I stayed here on our way to Dublin from Belfast. Pauline was the perfect host with a perfect pot of welcome tea complete with some sweet treats. The rooms are spacious and the WiFi is fast. As you step into your room, you feel as if you are staying over at a friend...except with great service!...

Stayed here for our friends wedding in September 16. Pauline, the woman of the house, and her husband are some of the nicest people you could meet. Bed was so comfortable, the breakfast was amazing (set you up for the busiest day), and then there is the warmth of the people themselves, could not be more welcoming and helpful, and...

My Mum and sister and I stayed for two wonderful nights at Pauline's cosy welcoming home. Pauline is the perfect hostess and helped us decide our daily itinerary.

We stayed at Killyliss House in early June 2016. Like many tourists we were looking for family ties. Pauline is the ultimate hostess - she runs a wonderfully warm and comfortable B&B. And she knows the areas and families... she lead us to connections that turned a day into an adventure! Many memories were created on that one day! Thank...

“Stayed in self-catering lodge. Has four beds in loft and downstairs kitchen, so good for families. I was traveling with my two adult sons, and it's hard to find suitable arrangements. This worked well. Bring shampoo and body wash; they are not provided.”
