Interaction with Guests
I live in the house with my family. We are easy going and would love to have you as our guests during your stay. We don't make a big fuss and we tend to let you do your own thing, however if you are around for a chat or want to enjoy a glass of wine with us then we would be delighted with the conversation too.

Taxi from Train Station / Town Centre to the house is approx. €6

Other Things to Note
Please note our house is a family home and you are a guest of ours. We have 1 dog and 1 cat - both very friendly! Our animals are very much a part of the family and they tend to be indoors when we are at home. Even though we love our animals, we do ensure that our pets respect our guests.
Please note that if you do not like animals this house is not suitable for you.
I am not always available to accommodate your time of arrival as I work full time however I will try my best to arrange this with some help.
Breakfast: Breakfast is included in the price ie: Fresh fruit, toast, cereal, various types of tea, nespresso coffee (or filter if you prefer) etc. If I'm not travelling, I usually set the table for guests however I do expect guests to tidy up after themselves and wash their own dishes.
We are no different than any other family with general rules but the important ones are below:
1. Please respect our home and our rules
2. Please leave your room tidy before leaving
3. Please ensure that showers are not long as hot water is limited.
4. Please do not smoke in our house (or out the window)
I had an excellent stay with Yolande and her family, they made me feel right at home and were very welcoming. Thanks again to all of you!
Yolande was the perfect host. She and her charming daughter made me feel immediately at home. I had cycled down from Kilrush during the day and so was quite exhausted by the time I'd reached her house. She invited me for dinner and we chatted well into the evening about our various travel experiences.
The room was spacious, clean and comfortable and the shower was excellent - an essential if you've been cycling all day.
Yolanda was a very gracious host. We enjoyed our stay with her and her daughter. We felt very comfortable in her home. Thanks Yolande.
The reservation was canceled 5 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Nice house and atmosphere, very confortable room and big bathroom. The house is not in the center of Killarney but with easy access to the national park. Very good the breakfast with fresh fruit, jams etc.
Yolande was the perfect host. She made sure we had everything we needed and then gave us loads of tips of what to see, where to eat, where to go and short cuts to get where we needed to go - a wealth of information. She even took us up to pick up our car at the hotel where we left it the night before. Our room was spacious and comfortable and we had an en-suite - bathroom with a power shower! The freshly made fruit salad we had at breakfast was divine! The walk into town was a gentle 15 minute walk. Would definitely recommend.
We felt thoroughly at home at Yolande's place. Yolande, her daughter and nanny were all very welcoming, friendly and helpful. Both the room and bathroom were clean, spacious and as advertised (great shower!) The provided breakfast was thoughtfully prepared, with a yummy fruitsalad, cereals, yoghurt, toast, coffee, tea, juice and everything else you need for a good start into the day. We had full use of the well equipped kitchen and the washer/ dryer. Yolande also lend us a drying rack to hang up our clothes when it started to rain outside.
The house itself is easy to find, located a good 10-15min (depending on pace) walk away from the town center, and also Ross Castle was only a short walk away. The neighbourhood felt very safe and peaceful, with children playing on the streets and away from the busy town center.
Animal lovers will be very happy at Yolande's, we were for sure! Their dog Sammy is really cute and playful and we were delighted whenever he was around.
So, if you decide to visit Killarney, we can highly recommend to stay with Yolande and her daughter, as they are great hosts!

Hi my name is Yolande - born in South Africa to Dutch parents. I have travelled and worked extensively through Africa and finally settled in the beautiful green Emerald Isle. My daughter and I love meeting people and hearing about their cultures and experiences and we in turn share a little about us. Our home is warm and inviting yet relaxed. We love animals, and have a dog and cat who are a part of our family. We are an active family who love being out and about.
We open our home to you when you visit and hopefully you will feel part of our family yet still have enough of your own privacy. We are around if you want us but we're not pushed if you don't want to talk. We look forward to meeting you and hopefully you will love Killarney as much as we do!
