“Great location but crappy service.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2012

The woodlawn house is located in the heart of Killarney which is a great for easy access to the town center. The house itself is very picturesque and clean. However the woman who took us in, Ciara, was not welcoming. There is no front desk area for the b&b so you have to ring a bell if you need something or have questions about tours and unfortunately this seemed to be a bother to her which she let you know everytime you rang it. She couldn't wait to get rid of us! Also just a tip if you are going to do a tour DO NOT book it with the b&b as the tour she recommended was awful and we noted after that her reasoning was because she got a cut of the profit. If you take the ring of kerry tour take it with Deros, not Concoran.

Also the beds in the rooms are very hard and you can't sleep on them well.

Great rooms with lovely view of the Kerry mountains. Car hire is generally a good idea in Killarney for days out so a good sized car park is very helpful. Plus the hotel is close enough to walk to town for evening meals. Staff are very helpful & knowledgeable. I would defiantly stay here again

We got engaged on the second day and when we returned to the room there was a bottle of champers waiting for us!

Nice spacious and clean rooms with beautiful views.

Very friendly staff.

My husband, son and I spent three nights recently at Woodlawn House and had a wonderful experience there. The home is lovely, large, and bright. Our rooms also were lovely, large, and bright! We were warmly greeted and very well treated. Hairdryers were included (a big bonus for women!) Free wi-fi was another big plus. The Breakfast Room also was large and bright and full of happy visitors. Food was ample, with lots of choices and service was excellent.

After a very soggy round of golf, the staff even offered the use of their laundry so we could dry our clothes - all with a smile. The B&B is a very short walk from the center of Killarney with its many shops and restaurants; and we walked (on a sunny morning) to Ross Castle which was a terrific tourist stop. We highly recommend Woodlawn House and will stay there again if we are lucky enough to get back to Ireland soon.

Room Tip: We stayed in the front of the house with a lovely view of the mountains - and traffic noise was not...

I am from the U.S., but have been working and traveling throughout Europe for a year. I travel to a different country every month, and Woodlawn House in Ireland was my favorite by far. Its located a short walk from the bus station, ideally located to the downtown shopping areas, pubs and restaurants. Head in the opposite direction and you're in the heart of Killarney National Park. The staff was over the top friendly, cooperative and offered solutions to all our needs. I can honestly say, it had the most 'American style' accomodations; very spacious, great breakfast, a hot & cold menu were included, bikes were available to rent, it was the kind of service and establishment you hope to come across.

Room Tip: You won't be disappointed with the accomodations here.
