Windway House
Ranked #17 of 143 Killarney B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 September 2011

This was our 2nd B&B on our travels in Ireland and it was quite easy to find. The location is great for walking into town for the pubs and shops. Just a 5 minute walk to the main drag.
The owner was lovely and had many amenities available to guests to make us feel very much at home, including tea and coffee, ice cubes (hooray!), and a small refrigerator for guest use.
A couple of drawbacks however:
if you are tall...showering is very difficult as the showers are tiny (which is true for many B&Bs) but the shower heads are miniscule! It made for quite a long time trying to rinse shampoo out of my hair!!
During our stay, my husband was bitten several times by some type of bug during the night. We found several LARGE (I mean nickel-sized bodies type of big) spiders in our room in the morning, so that could have been it? I assume they managed to crawl in through the window we were required to leave open after showering.
But the room was clean and the breakfast was delicious. We appreciated the wonderful handouts and directions for the duration of our journey, especially the recommendation to take the Shannon ferry. What fun!

Room Tip: There might be rooms with better TVs- ours was the size of a postcard! I saw some other reviews with...

My husband and I stayed at Windway House for two nights along with my brother and his wife. We were greeted by Frank, who is an interesting, funny man. We never did get to meet his wife, who was the cook for breakfast, but Frank kept us entertained. I would have rated this place with 5 stars if the rooms had not been so small. The bathroom is tiny, and two people could not share that space easily. Frank did have many amenities in the bath, as well as in room safes and umbrellas, which we appreciated and used. There was good WIFI, as well as a computer for the use of the guests. The little common sitting room had coffee, tea, hot chocolate and soups available at any time. Breakfast was delicious. Honestly, we never had a breakfast in Ireland that we didn't enjoy! It was a short walk to the center of Killarney and lots of places to shop and eat. We highly recommend this place as a good value and great location.

This B and B has lots to recommend it. A very warm welcome from a host willing to share advice and local knowledge, make phone calls on out behalf ... We had a comfortable double room, the use of a lounge with tea/coffee facilities, plus complementary bottled water, access to a fridge, internet - both on the hotel computer and our own laptop, parking ... it's easy to find, and is only a very short walk to the town centre. There are other small extras - like take away coffee cups and lids, toffees in the lounge, a range of toiletries ... it is definite value for money and somewhere we wouldn't hesitate in recommending to any visitor to Killarney

Clean, well appointed functional room, with flat screen TV and an excellent shower and washroom. Fridge in hall even had ice. Computer with internet available from 8 to 8. Frank's friendly welcome was appreciated after a long drive from Galway. He is extremely well organized and within minutes we were reading his handouts on Killarney and how to get to restaurants etc He suggested Gaby's Restaurant and even made reservations for us. Best meal we had in Ireland! B&B in excellent area for day trips to the Dingle peninsula, and Ring of Kerrry. We would definitely recommend Wndway House, as a first class experience.

Windway House is walking distance from the main street. Great location and the family was very friendly. They make nice recommendations for things to do and places to eat. It was our favorite B & B in Ireland. The breakfast both days was delicious. Water, tea, coffee was on the house. We recommend this place to everyone.
