We had a wonderful time in Killarney for St. Patrick's weekend. Mary & Eva were very welcoming, with lots of local recommendations/advice. Their home is very clean & comfortable and we had a large bedroom & bathroom. We enjoyed delicious breakfasts with a great choice. This B&B is ideally situated being a short stroll from the town centre with Muckross...

Greeted by the friendly owner of the lovely bed and breakfast. Very clean house and room. The bed was very comfy and bathroom was nice. A five minute drive to town which has numerous pubs, restaurants, cafes, shops and night clubs. Taxi cost 6 euro back to the B&B including a tip. Lovely night sleep and had a gorgeous breakfast...

My friends were in need of a B & B recommendation in Killarney - with so many to choose from I hoped my choice with Carranross House was the right way to go. It was more than the right choice! My friends were thrilled and very comfortable staying at this B & B. The owner, Mary, extended herself to their...

While the parking area may be a bit dicey when Mary is full, other than that, wow - what a great stay. We met so many interesting people. Mary speaks fluent French. She is a most gracious host. Our room was spot on with a large bathroom and a big room and bed - just as she promised. The rate...

We stayed for 3 nights. Clean, comfortable, modern rooms, and the shower was the best we had for our whole trip. The bathroom had shower gel, shampoo and conditioner provided which was nicer than the toiletries I had brought with me! The breakfast was delicious with a wide menu provided. Mary used to be a tour guide so is very...

Stayed two nights last week. Prompt helpful communications beforehand. Easy to find. Mary took the time to get to know us and orient us to the area as we arrived. Good tips on local dining and sights. Large room with comfortable queen-sized bed. Wide menu for breakfast, well prepared and presented. Nice to have protected off-street parking. Only problem was...

Our favorite B&B of our whole trip. Tidy, cute rooms with great showers. The service is great and the breakfast was delicious. Only a 10 minute walk from town centre. Mary is an excellent hostess-super friendly and accommodating.

I'm sure this B&B and Mary would be great, just wished she had honoured our confirmed room reservation we booked on booking.com. Mary gave up our room as we arrived later in the evening (11pm) after a very long drive from Galway. Reason mentioned was an email was sent earlier in the evening which we didn't get as we were...

Dear Serge C, As you had not arrived by 6.30pm, I checked the reservation details to see if there were any remarks about late arrival but found none. People usually note this on the booking form provided by booking.com, but there was no mention of a late arrival. Booking.com confirmed to me by email afterwards that you had not mentioned...

Located in a quiet area with easy access to the town centre and surrounding area, Carranross was an excellent choice on our part as to where to stay for our three days in Killarney. Mary was most hospitable and her past experience as a tour guide showed through. She had many suggestions on what to do, where to eat, etc....
