We are close to Killarney Town in a quiet area. It takes 10 minutes to walk into town. There is a small shop and a hotel with a bar and restaurant nearby. This is a perfect place for families or groups of walkers and mountaineers. We are 20 miles from the sea but are surrounded by lakes and mountains. Killarney is part of the famous driving route The Ring of Kerry and is the centre of the Lake District of Ireland.
There is so much to do in Killarney - I will leave brochures etc. of tours and restaurants in the apartment. Killarney is one of the premier places to come to in Ireland for a holiday. There are several 1st class golf courses in the vicinity and it is where the Carrolls Irish Open was played in the past two years. Nick Faldo, Rory McIlroy, Lee Westwood, are just some of the players that have played in Killarney. We are surrounded by mountains for hiking and free access to lakes. Boat trips for fishing and sightseeing with a possible glimpse of the white tailed eagles which have been released here in the past few years. New public leisure centre with pool and gym etc. Bikes for hire with little carriages on the back for children etc. Plentiful selection of first class restaurants with all price ranges even a McDonalds / Dominos Pizza etc. Free entertainment at night in some pubs.
Public Transport: Killarney is 15 minute drive from Kerry Airport which has an hourly bus service Killarney..((website hidden)) , ((website hidden))

We had the most wonderful stay here. The apartment was fantastic, with one of the best equipped kitchens we've had with air bnb. Lucille and her husband Joe could not have been more helpful, Joe even arranged a boat for us to do a tour of the lakes, dropped us off and picked us up at the other side of the park. Could not recommend more, we wished we could have stayed longer than two nights!
There were a couple of surprises with this apartment, but each one was positive.
Going in, we didn't realize that the apartment is underneath the main house. However, this worked to our advantage, as Lucille and Joe were available for any questions we had about the apartment or the area and they were always very helpful !
Having read the description online, we had collected a pocket full of 2euro coins to pay for electricity. But we didn't use any of these, as Lucille and Joe had put plenty of money in the meter... even though we did a lot of laundry (washing and drying).
The apartment is in a great location, close to town with easy & private access in and out of the back yard to a short-cut into town or the National Park.
We found the apartment comfortable, quiet and clean. The views are wonderful, especially in the morning.
We highly recommend this apartment if you have a chance to stay here.
We spent two nights in the apartment and we liked it very much. We found the apartment very clean, with everything you can need, such us hairdryer, travel cot, DVD player... even some fruit, milk and orange juice! It's well situated, in a quiet state but only ten minutes walking from downtown. Lucille and her husband were very nice with us, and the next time we back to Killarney we will stay here for sure :)
We enjoyed our stay -- it was great to be able to do laundry and spread out a bit after a week in b&b's. The location is quiet but close to downtown, and less than 10 minute drive to Muckross House. Lucille and Joe were helpful in orienting us to town - finding grocery stores, etc.
This is a perfect spot for those of you looking for a place to stay in Killarney. It's maybe a 5 min walk into town center. The pictures don't do justice to what a great little space this is. The view from the garden is priceless and smells of fresh honeysuckle. The tv is now Larger flat screen not the old tube in the picture and the host is fantastic. You have everything you will need inside the apartment. This was a great value and I would recommend it over and over again.
Lucille was very welcoming and we very much enjoyed our stay there. It was excellent proximity to the city with a short walk to the downtown area. Would definitely recommend!
Family and I had a great time, we enjoyed the space, being able to cook our own meals and do our washing.
A great location and will come back and stay next time in Ireland!
Lucille's place was wonderful. Joe met us when we first arrived and was very friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. The apartment was spacious, very clean and well equipped. Exactly what we were hoping for and we only wish we'd been able to stay longer. Thank you!!!
Hi Kat, Thank you for choosing our apartment to stay in while you were visiting the south coast of Ireland. We are glad it was what you needed. Thank you for leaving it so clean. Kat and her friends are welcome back anytime. I would recommend them to any future hosts. Regards, Lucille and Joe
Nous avons loué l'appartement pour 4 jours. Il est grand, confortable, propre et très bien équipé - Une grand salle à manger, deux très grandes chambres, deux salles de bain. Le petit jardin permet d'accéder très rapidement au centre ville grâce à un escalier. Lucille Doran est extrêmement sympathique et saura vous indiquer les promenades à faire et les bons coins à visiter. La maison est dans un quartier très calme, on put s'y garer sans difficulté. Les supermarchés sont à proximité (ouvert de 6 heures à 24 heures). En résumé une location à recommander.
It's a really good apartment, large, clean and design. An apartment in a good location, near city center, supermarket and beautiful landscape. Lucille Doran is really pretty. If you want be quiet, you have need the right place :-)
Thank you Sylvie and Jean-Paul for your very nice review. It is a great help to guests who are wondering if they should stay or not. We are so glad that you enjoyed your visit to Killarney and our apartment. Thank you for taking such good care of our apartment and leaving it in such good order. You are most welcome back any time. Best wishes, Lucille and Joe.
Lovely apartment space! Lucille (Host) was very nice and welcoming. We arrived later in the evening and was supplied with a local mobile number to message re arrival time. Helped alot with local attractions and recommendations. The apartment itself was more than big enough for the 5 adults we had in our party. Fully equipt kitchen as well with laundry facilities as well, which was definitely needed! Apartment also has access down to the main road out of Killarney with the main street about a 10 minute walk.
