“Beautifully restored stone building”
Reviewed 2 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

The coach house is a beautifully restored stone building that looks exactly like the website pictures. The look is "old world rustic" but the appliances and bathrooms are definitely the best of modern convenience. There is even a full sized washing machine and dryer - a real rarity in Ireland and much appreciated by our family of four!

Tim was very friendly and informative and even showed us how to start a peat fire which added to the cozy atmosphere. What a great place to relax in the evening. And the scones Tim brought to us on our first morning were an unexpected bonus!

We only stayed two nights and it wasn't enough. There is so much to do in the Killarney area. The coach house would be the perfect place to spend a week of sightseeing and relaxing.

“Spectacular Stay”

My parents and I stayed in the Coach House. The whole property was grand and adorable. It was like staying in a fairy tale cottage. It is located a short walk from town but is quiet for restful sleeping. It is a great location for plenty activities, you can go to the dingle peninsula or a bus tour around the ring of Kerry to exploring the beautiful Killarney National State Park and the unique Muckross house and the Torc waterfall. We spent 7 days here and had a lovely time. Tim and Bernadette were extremely helpful and provided excellent hospitality. They seemed to know exactly what we would like and provided loads of helpful tips on everything from day trips to where to go for seafood or steak. I would highly recommend this place.

“Lovely, definitely best self catering we've found in Killarney”
Reviewed 15 March 2013 for a stay in February 2013

person found this review helpful

Getting a nice self catering property in Killarney is a bit of a challenge we've found over the many times we've stayed there. There is nothing worse than an unloved holiday rental.

The priory cottages are at the other end of the spectrum. They are individual, a bit quirky, well thought through with nice touches. The hosts are lovely and the wood burning stove was a god send. Wi-fi great for being able to work surf.

There were a couple of things we would have changed, but they were minor and are the kind of touches that would move these holiday cottages into Bruern territory in terms of quality. A welcome pack would have been a lovely touch, more information on the local area and things to do and some tiny decorative changes. Blinds on the velux please to keep the kids sleeping!!!

All of the above are nit picking as we had a lovely week in a lovely place.

“A great, comfortable stay”

We stayed at The Priory -- on very short notice -- in February 2013. Given how close it was to our arrival date, we didn't know what to expect. But we were so pleased. We stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment. The living room with the peet fireplace was warm and comforting (since we stayed during February). We ate breakfast every day at the house and dinner one night. All the tools you'd need were there. The bedrooms and bathrooms were both super comfortable. Considering how old the property is, the renovations on the place were truely spectacular. Couldn't recommend it more highly.
(Oh, and the location was great. We stayed 4 nights and used it as the base of our operation to visit Limerick, Ardfert, Ring of Kerry and Cork .... especially in the winter it isn't crowded in the least there -- despite what Rick Steves may have to say.)

“Just gorgeous..”
Reviewed 17 December 2012 for a stay in December 2012

I found this place by accident on the Net and I'm so glad I did. it was just gorgeous in so many ways. We stayed in Teach Mor. The stonework was beautiful and everything had been thought about and provided for, down to bedside reading lights. Tim gave us some tips on local entertainment which we thoroughly enjoyed and also some travel tips which proved very valuable.My own gripe is ....that we couldn't stay longer!! However, Tim issued me a challenge and I have to come back within a certain time and i hope to meet that challenge and stay for at least a week.
