Sika Lodge B&B is located just outside Killarney, beside the national park and about a 20-minute walk to the centre of town. The house is beautiful and the rooms are quite spacious. Ours was bright and airy and had a queen bed and a single bed, with a wardrobe, a small desk, a TV/DVD and a chair. There was also a kettle to make coffee or tea. The attached bathroom had a shower, sink and toilet. The shower was strong and there was lots of hot water. The towels were nice and large and shampoo, conditioner and soap are provided. There is a strong wifi signal. Off street parking is provided. We were welcomed very warmly by one of the owners, Serena, who provided us with lots of useful information and a map. The house is very neat and clean and there are lots of extras that you can ask for (bagged lunches, ice, etc.). There is a large main-floor sitting room with a selection of books and movies. Breakfast included a selection of cereals, fruit salad, bread, pastries, cheese and yoghurt, and your choice of several cooked meals. Serena is an excellent cook and always has special treats on hand. This was the most expensive B&B we stayed in during our 7-day road trip but it was also the best, and we do not regret spending a little extra for such fine accommodation. This would be our first choice on returning to Killarney.

Staying at the B&B with Serena and her family is the best choice we could make. It's a beautiful house with many lovely details and very comfortable rooms. The highlight is Serena's home-made breakfast: There is a buffet and additionally an extra menue from which you get the choice of what you would like to eat. Soooo yummy! The B&B is walking distance to the town and National Park and just the perfect base to discover Ring or Kerry.

We stayed at the Sika Lodge for 2 nights and the home was very welcoming as was the owner, Serena. She was very helpful in giving us ideas for things to do in Killarney (Ross Castle, Muckross House, Torc Waterfall, etc.) , most of which were a short drive away so the location was great. It was also within walking distance to town or a short drive. She's a great cook and had a nice variety for breakfast and do try her homemade jams and baked goods, they are delicious! We would definitely stay here again next time we're back in Killarney!

A lovely b & b conveniently located to killarney and ring of Kerry. Our host was very friendly and helpful with suggestions to visit. The breakfast was excellent and we really appreciated the little extras like having some cakes and slices cooked for when we arrived. We would strongly recommend staying there.

Stayed here for 1 night. From the time we arrived to when we left the host Sarina was excellent even rang taxi for us into town. The rooms are a very high standard, very clean room and tea making facilities available. The breakfast was amazing along with bread that was home made by owner. Also on arrival we were given home made tasty sweet treats which was lovely. Highly recommend!
