    We spent 1night in Killarney. The Murphy's Gesthouse is in a fantastic location right in the middle of town. Room was clean and Staff very friendly. Good, freshly made breakfast. The car park can be a problem only.

    Hi Maureen Thank you for your enquiry. You would need to get a taxi to the airport as the first bus is @ 10am. It is approx. a 20 mins drive from Killarney town centre. Kind regards Maureen
