3 nights stay, helpful staff, delicious breakfast, simple rooms, everything you would need is here. 3 minute walk to town, beautiful common areas to sit, read a book and relax, very quiet even though it is on the main road you don't hear a thing. Lovely stay!

Stayed here with a friend as we planned to go out in Killarney for a night. The location is great as it's a 3 minute walk from the town centre. Check in was easy but not exactly memorable. The rooms are very out dated with old furnishings, a terrible smell of damp (dirty- not sure how to describe it but...

My family and I stayed at the Abbey Lodge for 6 nights during our Irish Holiday. The Location could not be any more perfect. We were close enough to walk (5 minutes) to the town to enjoy shopping, food, and the night life, but far enough away to escape the noise of the busy streets. The breakfasts were hot, served...

Excellent position, right in front of one of the entrances of the Park (and a bike rental). City centre is just 5 minutes far (walking) and Abbey Lodge has free parking in a town where parking isn't easy. Our room was spacious, even if the impression is that common areas (especially the lounge) are much more refined and elegant than...

My wife & I spent 3 nights at Abbey Lodge during a motoring tour of S.W. Ireland in June. Very well situated just three mins from main shopping/eating area. Ample parking in grounds of the house and rooms very comfortable and of a good size. TV service poor if you want to get a weather forecast! Only 7 channels and...

This is a fine place a few blocks from downtown. I stayed two nights with a roommate while on a small group tour. The room felt more like a motel than a B&B in terms of layout and non-descript dated decor. Bathroom had no ventilation. Slept OK; beds rather hard and did not give that pampered feeling of our other...

Welcome was distanced and cool. Beds are OK, free WiFi doesn't work because the Abbey has 5 different WiFi channels which push each other out of the frequencies needed. Bathroom had poor ventilation (warning sign on the bathroom door: please shut the door during showering because our fire alarm is very sensitive) and there where cob webs on the curtains...

The Abbey Lodge was a one night stop for our family. It was in a really good location to walk to Killarney's City Center and a short drive to Killarney National Park. The park is stunning, I highly recommend hiking there for a day or two. At breakfast I was offered a shot of Baileys for my steel cut oatmeal!...

We traveled with my 4.5 month old son and wife just a couple weeks back to the Lodge (which is attached and shares breakfast to the Ardree House B&B) in Killarney to spend a few days seeing the Ring of Kerry, Gap of Dunloe, Killarney Park, and Dingle. We had a great experience in the house. The breakfast is good,...
