Interaction with Guests
I am a full time working mom. I leave to go to work in the mornings and am back in the evenings. I usually have time in the mornings for a quick chat before leaving for work and in the evenings enjoy catching up with guests after their day out. My interaction is informal and I'm always available to give tips and advice on where to go and what to see. I do my best to meet everyone on arrival but I'm not always available to meet you but various arrangements are in place.
The house is situated in a quiet neighborhood estate close to Killarney town. It has great access to the town and for exploring the Ring of Kerry. You can pretty much walk everywhere from our house. Most places in Killarney are within 15-20 minutes walking distance from our house including Killarney National Park and Ross Castle.
Walking distance to Killarney town (15 minutes)
Walking distance to Killarney National Park (10 minutes)
Taxi from Train Station / Town Centre to the house is approx. €6
From Kerry Airport, there is a shuttle bus to the bus station in Killarney and from there its easy to walk to my house.
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.
Breakfast: Breakfast is included in the price ie: Toast, cereal, tea / coffee and fruit from the fruit bowl. 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 had a fantastic stay at Yolande's place. It's a comfortable room, with your own bath, in a nice neighborhood near downtown Killarney.
Yolande was a great host - very communicative and attentive to our needs.
I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for accommodation in the Killarney area.
Killarney is a beautiful place! Great national park with plenty of hiking, so location was spot on for this listing. It is a family home, & that was fine for our stay, but I can see that some people may not be fully aware of what this means. Please make sure you do.
Yolande is very friendly and gave us advices for our Trip. The rooms was very clean and the breakfast was good! With fresh fruits and yoghurt! Nice district.Thanks!
We stayed two nights at Yolande´s place. It was a quite and nice room with a double bed, the bathroom is on the same floor and is shared with the au-pair. In the morning, we got a delicious breakfast with bred, orange juice, cereals, joghurt and fresh fruits. :)
Yoland gave us some good tips for our further travelling and driving route.
You need 15-20 Minutes to walk into the city centre. There is also a horse race track right beside the house, just in case you are interested in horse racing ;)
Thank you for hosting us.
Very nice and cozy room. Extremely close to all the good spots. Both Yolande and her daughter were super friendly and hospitable. And Sammy was adorable, we missed him for days after we left. We would totally stay with Yolande again.
Beautiful house and large bedroom. The breakfast was always prepared before we came down. The house is at 15min of the city center. Quiet area, everything was perfect!! Highly recommanded!
We had a couple of nice days over at Yolande's place though we primarily been there at night times only. The room was tidy, comfortable without beeing too luxury. A bed with fresh sheets, a desk, an armchair and a wall socket...just the stuff you need when on vacation.
Bathroom is across the hall with a nice clean shower stall. The floor boards need to be treated with caution as they squeak. ;)
If you bother about your privacy, rest assured that you won't be in any way disturbed during your stay. Yolande is all nice and friendly, but will leave you alone most of the time. The breakfast table is beeing arranged by Yolande every morning, mostly with cereals, porridge, milk, juice, etc.
If you need anything special, just get it yourself at the supermarket. All kitchenware can be used freely. There is a little fridge for guests as well.
The house itself is located about 20 minutes from down-town Killarney, easily reachable by foot.
We really enjoyed our stay and will probably go a second time.

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!
