We stayed at a total of 6 B&B's in Ireland this trip and the riverside was by far the best. The owner was Really helpful and friendly finding us great places for dinner and shopping in the area. The B&B is walking distance from an old iron bridge from the 1800's, great for pictures or just an evening walk. It... More

We were unable to stay in this lovely BnB this time while in Killorglin as it was closed for the few days we were there. However the proprietor Geraldine apologized for not being able to accommodate us and kindly directed us to another establishment just across the river. I have stayed at Riverside House before ( my first BnB experience)... More

We just left Riverside House after two nights. What a perfect spot. We fell in love just driving up. Besides being right on the Ring of Kerry drive, the B&B is situated right on the river with a trail available for an enjoyable stroll. It just got better inside. We had huge picture windows with gorgeous views in our comfortable... More

The B&B is located just on the edge of town with a private car park. We were easily able to walk to everything. The B&B features several uncommonly spacious and well equipped common rooms and overlooks the river.

Very nice bedroom. Breakfast was OK. View of river was spectacular. Grounds need a lot of work. Owners try very hard to work help and work with guests. Upstairs lounge was a very unique feature that really showed off the view.

One of our group was unwell and not feeling up to the Ring of Kerry drive. We arrived mid-morning at Riverside and Geraldine didn't hesitate a second to allow her to check into a room much earlier than normal so that she could spend the day in bed. She helped to make our trip into a great memory, rather than... More

Geraldine is a very welcoming and smiling person. The breakfast was delicious and bedroom was lovely with a great view of the land. Our daughter forgot her cuddly cat and Géraldine was kind enough to send it back to us by post. We recommend this place without hesitation.

We stayed one night on our way north to Galway. We found Killorglin and the Riverside house to be a nice stop along the way. Breakfast and coffee were excellent with a great view of the river from the dining room. Thank you for the hospitality. We enjoyed our brief stay.

The Riverside House provided clean, comfortable, very reasonably priced accommodations, a lovely breakfast, and sincere and gracious communication with me when I stopped in for one night without a reservation. If you're looking for the Hilton, this isn't it. It's a family run, in-home B&B with no frills clean, comfortable rooms. Was it perfect? No-water swirled around my feet while... More

“All the rooms looked to be equally attractive, as near as we could tell. Not like a big hotel, with rooms on "good" side or not. Geraldine will surely put you in the best room she has available of the right size.”
