“Best b and b experience ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2011

Of all the b and b we had in our five days in Ireland maureen's Shraheen house in Killarney gets our thumbs up. The entire house and surrounding grounds are maintained to an immaculate standard both in cleanliness as well as good taste, nothing cheap or tacky god forbid. A feminine and artistic touch is evident throughput the entire house. Many thoughtful extras like milk and cookies, hairdryer, toiletries basket. The ensuite was small but scrupulously clean, and everything worked with no exceptions. The breakfasts ate truly well worth waking up early for. We particularly enjoyed the smoked salmon with scrambled eggs as well as the fruit platter with yogurt. All generously portioned and served with pride. It has been rated 4 stars by the AA, I would go one step further and give Maureen and her husband 5 stars. We had a wonderful stay and look forward to Many happy returns!:)

We spent 4 nights at Shraheen House. Maureen was a wonderful hostess and provided us with lots of advice on local attractions. Breakfasts were excellent, scrambled eggs and salmon, a great combination. Our room was clean and comfortable, looking out onto the lovely garden. The rooms are ideally located to allow access without disturbance. A perfect base for exploring Killarney and surrounding areas.

Located in a quiet neighborhood just minutes from the center of town, Shraheen House was a welcome place at the end of a long day. The rooms were even nicer than I had expected, as was the entire place. Breakfast was wonderful, even more so because our wonderful hostess is quite a baker in addition to everything else.

We stayed in Killarney for two nights and luckily chose Shraheen House! Lucky us! The home is located in a quiet, charming neighborhood, with easy access to the city center and local attractions. There's ample free parking here, too.

We did not expect to be bowled over by breakfast - we were already used to some pretty tasty fare. And then, we had breakfast at Shraheen House. Do yourself a favor and order the smoked salmon with eggs. Really. Maureen will present you with the most outstanding dish you've ever had. Fabulous! She bakes lovely breads to accompany your meal as well.

Maureen is a delightful hostess. She offered maps and suggestions for sightseeing, for which we were grateful. At her suggestion, we toured Muckross House and had a fabulous time. We'd go back to Shraheen House tomorrow if we could! Thank you, Maureen!
