We stayed 2 nights. The B&B and the rooms are very nice and clean, in Victorian style, very charming. The B&B is central in the city of Killarney, but far from the noisy place, located in a side and quite cul-de-sac. The owners are friendly and ready to help you in case of need; especially Rosemary was very very kind...

Stayed here last summer on a trip through Ireland. Great food, GREAT location, and very nice proprietor. Ask her about her husband, Ronald Reagan, and the bald eagle.

Only 2 of the rooms have pressurized water. I couldn't even rinse the shampoo out of my hair. I had to get a cup and try to rinse it out. It was a tiny dribble of water. The water that did come out was scolding. Unfortunately we had already booked for 2 nights. The walls were also very thin. I...

My boyfriend and I stayed for one night at Oaklawn House, after reading brilliant reviews on Trip Advisor. However, on arrival we were very disappointed. The room was very dated - probably decorated in the 1970's, but has not been updated since. The bed was extremely creaky and dipped in the middle. Breakfast was okay - but we were not...

Lovely home, and Mrs O'Connell is an excellent hostess. Breakfast was very good, and the room and house are beautiful. Would recommend to any all staying in Killarney as was on a quiet street, but very close to all of the action.

Oaklawn is off the main road, on a quiet side street. It is very well situated for an easy short walk into Killarney centre and also the National Park. The directions on the website are somewhat outdated: The Texaco Garage is now Amber and the Leanes Foodstore is now AsiaFoodstores (?). The house is large, with a sitting area for...

Would highly recommend this B&B. Rosemary was very friendly and helpful. It was very clean and the shower was great! They even had wash/face clothes for us Americans! We even had our own sitting area. Thank you….very nice touch. Great breakfast! Short walk to town.

We weren't planning to stay in Killarney but simply ran out of daylight for driving. The B & B is on a road that looks more like an alley when you turn onto it off of the main road through town. The house and yard are pretty, and we were able to park our rental car in the B &...

We stayed with Rosemary during our 2 days in the Killarney area. This B&B is convenient to the city center - walking distance - as well as tourist attractions for Killarney National Park. The hospitality is wonderful and Rosemary made the best recommendation for dinner at Paddy's. Rosemary is very accommodating to her guests and made our stay in Killarney...

We stayed only one night at Rosemary's but wished we'd stayed another. It was warm, lovely and so clean! She made a wonderful Irish Breakfast that was delicious! Her gardens were manicured to perfection. We could walk into Killarney-- very convenient! Would stay there again! We had great service.
