Very happy with this apartment. Lucille & Joe were very helpful with giving directions and ready to let us in, and give advice on where to visit.
Apartment was spotless, warm and had everything required.
Would recommend to anyone.
Lucille was a wonderful host. Very welcoming, and friendly. The apartment was just as described very nice and cozy. Also very close to town, so easy to walk into downtown Killarney. Would definitely recommend this host.
Received a warm welcome and helpful guidance on places to visit.
Spacious, clean and well equipped - We all enjoyed staying at the property.
Had a great time in Killarney and the property was conveniently located to explore the national park and a short walk into town.
Would definitely stay again and recommend to others. Thanks Lucille and Joe.
A colleague and I stayed at Lucille and Jon's for three days. They were amazing hosts! When they heard that we were interested in hiking, Jon brought us an armful of gear and put us in touch with a guide friend.
Their English basement is cozy and super convenient to downtown Killarney. Would definitely stay here again next time!
Great place to stay. We actually spent 5 days there and everything was perfect. It is located really close to downtown and close to the convention center which allowed us to get to both really easily. I would recommend this place to my friends
Lucille was a very nice host. She was very flexible when orgainising a place to meet for the keys. The place was very clean and very close to town. There was also loads of parking and it was in a nice quiet area. She had a folder explaining how everything in the house worked and where to go in the locality for food, drink and activities. I would highly recommend her place and would happily stay here again if I returned to Killarney.
Outstanding. Killarney/County Kerry was the best part of our travels through Ireland. The apartment was spotless and prepped as if it were a hotel suite. Lucille was incredibly responsive leading up to the visit and Joe, who checked us in, was great. He took ample time to go over logistics with us and was very sweet with our 2 year old daughter - he even retrieved from his own home a well-loved toddler-sized rocking chair for her to use while we were there. We would have stayed a month if we could. Thanks Lucille and Joe!
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 is 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.
