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.

The hosts know how to cater to Americans -- there were even wash cloths! Very thoughtfully prepared -- from snacks to a hair dryer. Lucille's husband took quite a bit of time to review the area with us and our trip on the Ring of Kerry benefited greatly from his tips. We also appreciated the "secret" passage to city center.
This is a very well-appointed, comfortable, and spacious apartment. The hosts, Lucille and Joe, were very generous with their time and made sure we were comfortable during our visit to Killarney. The apartment is in an excellent location, you can easily walk to town. They also provided biscuits and fresh milk and juice along w/ tea and coffee so there wasn't an immediate need to stop at the grocery upon arrival. Many thanks for a wonderful stay in Killarney!
We loved our stay here! It was the perfect location to easily drive to hiking and sites, and to the center of town. The apartment was spotless, had so much room and we liked having the kitchen to keep a few groceries for breakfast and snacks. Working with Joe and Lucille was great - got all the info we needed for checking in, and Joe gave us fantastic information about local hikes. Only wish we could have stayed longer! Can't wait to come back to Killarney!
The apartment is PERFECT!! It's very spacious and accommodating. It's quite. The bed is comfortable. The shower has great water pressure and hot water. Joe and Lucille are wonderful hosts!!! Great communication. Joe was very kind and went out of his way to help us get to and from the train station. They had great maps and recommendations for local sites and restaurants. We would highly recommend staying here and we plan to return. The location is only a 10 minute walk from town. Thank you, Joe and Lucille for being such brilliant hosts. We greatly appreciate it.
Lovely stay, lovely family.. We had a super time and can thoroughly recommend a visit.
The appartment was well appointed and just as show in the pictures.

About the Host, Lucille
We are a semi retired couple, but we are very active! Our children are grown-up so it's a quiet household and we have decided to let out our garden apartment occasionally. It is perfect as a base to explore the south coast of Ireland. It is also an ideal location to do some hill walking My husband Joe was a member of the Killarney Mountain Rescue, and has lots of advice for walkers. We are outdoors people with a camper and canoe. We have also climbed Carrauntoohil which is close by and is the highest mountain in Ireland. We love meeting new people and hope they enjoy our beautiful country.
