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.

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)
Yolande made us feel very comfortable at her home. It was a very relaxing stay. The room was very nice and everything that we could need was there. We also enjoyed her nice company and the company of all family members :)
I will definitely come again to the region and if it's possible will stay with Yolande. The national park was incredibly beautiful.
Yolande and her daughter were very welcoming and we enjoyed their hospitality a lot. When we arrived, Yolande hasn't been home, yet, so her daughter took over and did a great job showing us the house and telling us everything we needed to know. :) Their home is located a 20 minute walk outside the busy city center in a quiet residential area. It is also about the same distance to Ross Castle and the national park, which we enjoyed exploring. The room and bathroom were very clean and the bed was comfy. One night Yolande had a friend visiting, she invited us to sit with them and offered us a drink. We enjoyed talking to them a lot. It's always great to get to know the people you stay with. We definitely recommend staying with them.
Yolande nous a gentiement accueuilli à la maison. Elle nous a installé dans notre chambre au 2e étage. Chambre plutôt petite mais confortable. Salle de bain assez grande et très propre. Le gîte est situé à proximité à pied de la ville de Kilkenney et du château de Ross. Yolande et sa fille Jessica sont très sympathiques et dévouées. Petit déjeuner complet et amplement suffisant. Nous recommandons cet endroit.
Yolande's house was very welcoming! She had everything mapped out for us on arrival. We only stayed two nights but could have stayed more. The bathroom was clean, the rooms private. There is a dog (he's so sweet!) and a cat but the animals don't visit the top floor so it felt very clean and comfortable. Her home is not walking distance to Ross Castle or Killarney National Park but it's very close by car. We enjoyed long hikes and nature during this portion of our trip. I recommend Torc's Waterfall.
We were greeted by Yolande's daughter when we arrived and were shown to our room. Room and toilet was clean and comfortable. Due to time constraints, Yolande offered us valuable advice for travel tips around Killarney. Even though we had to leave early on one morning as we planned a long day on the roads, Yolande still ensured we had breakfast before we left. Moreover, we left a water bottle at Yolande's and she agreed to post it to us in Dublin. Overall a great experience. Best regards to Yolande and her daughter.
We really enjoyed staying at Yolande's house. The room was clean and very comfortable. We also enjoyed the conversations we had during which she gave us some good advice on what to do in town. Her house is walking distance from the city centre and literally across the street from Killarney's best music show "Celtic Steps".
We strongly recommend staying at her place, specially if you like dogs (her dog Sammy is awesome!).
My boyfriend and I only stayed at Yolande's home for one night. We were very tired from traveling, so we did not get the chance to socialize with Yolande very much, but her home was cozy and very comfortable. It was a nice place to relax after lots of driving. The bedroom we stayed in had a full bathroom connected to it. It was very clean and everything we needed was provided! Yolande's home is very close to all the shops and restaurants of Killarney and within walking distance of Ross Castle and Killarney National Park. I would definitely recommend staying at Yolande's should you find yourself in Killarney!

About the Host, Yolande
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!
