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.

Only the agreed number of people booked to stay in the apartment.
This was a perfect apartment for 4 people, with spacious kitchen, fine bathrooms with plenty of hot water, great view of the mountains from the private terrace and walking distance to downtown Killarney. Joe, Lucille's husband, greeted us and was full of helpful information. Lucille runs a shop in Kenmare, so they knew lots about the Ring of Kerry. Great place!
The apartment was clean and had everything I needed for a comfortable stay. The location is a mostly flat 10 minute walk to downtown Killarney but taxis are available if desired. The WiFi was fast and worked well. Lucille and Joe were helpful and gracious hosts. I would definitely stay at the apartment again.
Just back from a week in Killarney where we stayed at Lucille and Joe's place. The photos don't do it justice! It was even lovelier that we expected. Spacious, very clean, well appointed. And the access to the yard along with the view of the mountains was a treat! The walk into town is short and easy. Couldn't have asked for more. And as extras we were provide with help in transporting our luggage as well as great recommendations for exploring the town and the national park. Lovely, gracious host. Excellent accommodations. Great choice!
Joe and Lucille were lovely people, we felt very at home and only wish we could have stayed longer. It was well positioned for town and well equipped, very clean and comfortable.
Lucille and Joe's garden apartment is absolutely fantastic. Communication was great from booking, arriving to leaving there were no worries at all. The apartment itself is exactly as described and actually quite a large place. Every detail has been thought of from coffee, tea and biscuits to washing powder. Overall my boys and I were very impressed and would love to go back. The only issue we had was not booking more nights to stay in this fabulous place and area.
We had a fantastic stay in Killarney. Lucille's apartment is lovely: very clean, well equipped and with excellent views of the mountains. Joe was extremely welcoming when we arrived and took his time to answer our questions about the area and was able to advise us about walking in the hills. We would definitely like to stay again!
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.
