Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is a hidden gem in Killarney. The rooms were immaculate, on a quiet street but a 2-minute walk to the city center. The owner, David, is just the sweetest person ever, I can't say enough wonderful things about this property. Don't miss out on this one.

Great location and ample parking. 5 minute walk from the center of Killarney. The rooms are large and the bathroom spacious. The staff were super friendly and helpful. The breakfast room is perfect and tea and coffee are are available 24 hours.

Recently-opened (2020?) B&B, well-located on a quiet street just a couple of blocks from downtown Killarney. Room on 3rd floor (#10, I think) was spacious and comfortable. David was a very attentive host and went out of his way to make us comfortable - including toting luggage upstairs and serving breakfast early on departure day. Breakfast is continental, but very sufficient. (Don't need "Full Irish Breakfast" every day!) Highly recommended.

Just back from a wonderful stay at the Birches. Everything about the Birches was perfect for me, the quietness, the proximity to Killarney town and Killarney house and gardens too. Breakfast room is small, no hot food but everything else is available, very tasty too. Would recommend the Birches for sure and I will be back there again for sure.

My fiancé and I stayed in this lovely guesthouse for one night during our stay in Killarney. It has a perfect location, just a stone's throw away from the city center. Near the train station which makes it ideal for those who don't have a car. The room was fair enough for the size and the toilet has adequate space and not suffocating. The bed was very comfortable. In the morning time, they also offer a generous light breakfast menu of pastries, cereals, porridge, and a selection of hot drinks (plus a Nespresso machine). The staff were very friendly and accommodating the moment we arrived in the guesthouse, she gave us recommendations on where to go and where to rent bikes to the national park. The only comment I would have would be the air conditioning? It could be a little warm and may be an issue if you're visiting during the summertime. Otherwise, superb experience. Would definitely recommend and come back. :)

Super Friendly Check-in by David. All aspects of our Accomodation spotlessly Clean and Modern. Location Ideal only 2 minutes walk to main street. Had booked for 2 nights but doubled our stay as it was so good. Can't wait to come back.

Stayed in the birchess for two nights with my partner and it is definitely the nicest place I’ve stayed in Killarney. Very friendly customer service. The entire place is spotless, the beds are so comfy. Everything about our stay was a 10/10. We can’t wait to come back again. Highly recommended.

The Birches is a fine property. We stayed for a few nights in early August and had a good experience. The facility is new so there are no infrastructure issues as their are in most Irish B&B's. The location is outstanding as it is 5 minutes walk from City Center but since it is just outside the center, you have no noise. We thought the value for money was excellent. Only 350 Euros for 2 nights in the peak of the summer. The host, Dave, is a very responsive and service oriented. No complaints on that front. We would have given this a 5 star rating but for the breakfast. It's a light breakfast (a continental one really) with no hot food and served in a very drab front room. Almost feels like you are eating in a conference room with little light. I don't think there is much they can do about it since there is no room for a proper lobby/dining area and I don't think they have a kitchen. But frankly, the price is so competitive that I would pick this again if I was looking for value. 0000000000000

Had a lovely stay in the Birches Killarney last night. The rooms were lovely and spacious and very clean. David was very welcoming and the selection of breakfast options available was brilliant. I would highly recommend the Birches and we will definitely be returning soon!

Had an amazing stay here, stayed for two nights. The room was very impressive; I don't think I've ever slept as well which was down to the otherworldly bed. There was a nice big shower, and the bathroom mirror had a section which defogged itself so you could see yourself after your shower which I thought was very cool (it's the little things!). The lounge room was kitted out with a coffee machine, full fridge, pastries (warm croissants were to die for!!!), breads, cereals, along with a microwave, toaster etc. Friendly people too! Will 100% be returning, had a great stay.
