The Invicta
Ranked #43 of 143 Killarney B&B and Inns
Reviewed 8 September 2014

My husband and I stayed at the Invicta the second weekend of September and it was fantastic! We are outdoorsy people and Killarney National Park was within 5 minutes walk, Gap of Dunloe was a 5 minute drive, and plenty of other fantastic hikes! The breakfast was fantastic...Mary greeted us with coffee/tea and awesome cookies and cakes when we arrived and sat down and talked with us and helped plan our trip around the Killarney area. She truly cares about what she does! Her brown bread in the morning was the BEST I had during my entire stay in Ireland! You can not go wrong staying at the Invicta. The peace and quiet and gorgeous views of the lake and mountains are phenomenal!!!

Room Tip: We stayed in room #4 and had awesome views of the mountains!!

This was a great part of the trip and host were so welcoming. They were very helpful and so kind to us. Breakfast was excellent, probably the best throughout the trip. Great distance away from the main town of Killarney and the rest of the national park, and also a good midpoint to get the Dingle. Very warm and inviting place. Highly recommend it!!!

My sister and I had a twin room at The Invicta and loved it!

It is clean and cozy. The crisp clean sheets had a fresh laundry scent which we found at a lot of B&Bs in Ireland. Our room was a lovely twin room that felt like home.

Mary is a wonderful laid back and the kindest host. We very much enjoyed our stay, and would definitely recommend to anyone planning to stay in the area.

It is easy to find The Invicta as well, because they have very convenient signs to direct you.

Breakfast was great!

The Invicta was also conveniently located close to Tomie's woods (a short walk away) which has a very beautiful walk round to O'Sullivan's Cascades. It is also close to Dunloe Gap, ring of Kerry, and Killarney National Park.

Home made cakes on arrival with lovely tea and coffee, great help to organize boatings and transports toward Gap of Dunloe, excellent knowledge of the area and good tips to enjoy yourself during your stay and after.
Great confort in the bedroom and bathroom, extremely comfortable beds, the very best we have had during our tour of Ireland, altogether well Worth a four star BB !
It was very sad to depart such a friendly familly home but we'll be back for sure !
Many thanks to you both Sean and Mary, look after yourselves !

I can only agree with everyone who has already given The Invicta 5 stars (or circles). We arrived late, partly due to having a problem finding it. (We thought it was at Beaufort, but it is at Tomies, not far from The Gap of Dunloe and Kate Kearney's Cottage.) However Mary assured us it wasn't a problem and produced tea and cake for us.
I suspect we had the nicest room, at the front with a balcony overlooking the lake. Beautiful. Unfortunately with only 2 nights there, we had too much to do to sit too long enjoying the one view. Breakfast was cooked to perfection. The highlight of our 12 day Irish trip was The Gap of Dunloe, which we did on horse and cart - a truly memorable experience. We did not know about this until Sean warned us not to take the car up during the day. We did, in fact, manage to find our way down it by car the second evening. Still lovely. But if you're going to do that, make surre you have a GOOD map. We got lost several times first.
I would definitely recommend The Invicta and we hope to return as there are so many things we didn't see. And I have only found out since we got back that Sean has boats that we could have hired! I apologise for being very late with this review, but I wanted to include photos that we had lost, even though they do not do it justice.

Room Tip: I think they are all nice, but the front one with the balcony had a wonderful view of the lake.
