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)
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!
Yolande's place was great. It was in a nice little neighborhood within walking distance to Killarney. Yolande and her daughter greeted us at the door, and gave us excellent suggestions on where to grab dinner. The room was clean, the bed was comfy, an excellent choice for a home base if you're driving the Ring of Kerry.
Had a lovely experience staying with Yolande. The location was walking distance from the center and we felt safe in the area. Yolande was responsive and had everything ready for our arrival. We appreciated her restaurant recommendations and advice on getting around. We especially enjoyed our chats with Yolande and her daughter over breakfast. The friendly dog was a nice bonus!
Very nice second look room with fully equipped en suite. Yolande made us very welcome, and was a good host.
Yolande was extremely gracious and welcoming of us to her home. She gave some great tips for walking around town and our trip through the Ring of Kerry. Would absolutely stay again!

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!
