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 .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 from fast food to five star. Free entertainment at night in some pubs.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Lucille and Joe were wonderful hosts and made us feel very welcome. Their apartment was very comfortable for our family of five, with older teenage children. Fabulous B&B hospitality!

  • Great experience. The flat is very nice and the area amazing. The family are really welcoming! We had a very good time in this flat. It's especially perfect for families.

  • Lucille and Joe were very friendly and made our stay very nice.
    The appartment was really clean, very well furnished and cosy.
    We were travelling with a baby and we were surprised to find everything we could need (even nappy bags - very convenient). The kitchen has everything you could need if you're cooking and you can wash and dry your clothes.
    The wifi is also very fast.

    There is two big bathrooms very clean.

    Honnestly the pictures don't do justice, it is better in real :) There is a big tv screen and a lovely little garden. We even fund a dishes washer.

    I highly recommend this appartment. It is very well located to visit the ring of Kerry and Dingle peninsula.

    Lucille et Joe sont très sympathiques. Leur appartement est très bien situé pour visiter le Ring of Kerry et la péninsule de Dingle.
    For everyone who is sensitive about the daylight on the morning don't forget your night mask, night is falling late and rising early !

    Il y a tout ce dont on peut avoir besoin dans l'appartement. Deux grandes salles de bains avec une douche et une baignoire, la cuisine est spacieuse et contient tout le nécessaire pour cuisiner. Un lave linge et un sèche linge sont présents et même un lave vaisselle !

    L'appartement était très propre et contenait plein de matériel pour bébé (très pratique pour nous qui voyagions avec une petite fille), le wifi est très rapide et il y a une grande Tv dans le salon. Devant la maison il y a également un joli petit jardin fleuri.

    Je recommande cet appartement.
    Pour tout ceux qui craignent la lumière du jour le matin, pensez à vos masques :)

    Response from Lucille:

    Thank you Elodie for your advice. Yes we updated a few things and need to change our pictures. Our daughter Emily is a photographer but she is very busy photographing weddings this time of year. Nevertheless, we will do it before next year. Thank you again for staying with (website hidden) wishes to all your family. Lucille and Joe Doran

  • Our stay in Lucille and her husband's house was very nice, we spend a few nights overthere and everything was perfect: clean, everything in place, and a warm welcome with useful explanations ! To sum up, highly recommended

    June 2014
  • Lucille (email hidden), even offering to pick me up for the train station with my bike. Answered any questions I had about the area. Would recommend to anyone staying in Killarney.

    June 2014
  • Lucille and Joe were the best hosts. Lucille went above and beyond her call of duty as a host. If there was any problem, all i had to do was text her and she would get it fixed promptly. She knew i was travelling with a baby and she made it so much easier for me and my family.
    The apartment was fabulous. Huge space, well decorated and equipped. It had everything i needed. It was clean, well ventilated and washed with light. i loved everything, the house, Lucille and killarney.

    Highly highly recommended. Thanks so much Lucille.

  • Lucille and her husband Joe were welcoming and knowledgeable about the Kerry area, giving us lots of ideas for our stay. The flat was comfortable and roomy, and the kitchen had even been stocked with some essentials before our arrival (milk, orange juice, tea and coffee).
    We really couldn't have asked for a better stay, and we hope to be back to take in the beauty of the Ring of Kerry and enjoy Lucille's hospitality!

    June 2014
  • We loved this apartment. My husband and I stayed with our two children ages 19 and 22. We had plenty of room. The apartment was very clean. It was a quick walk out the back gate to get into town. Joe and Lucy were very friendly and had lots of knowledge about the area. We would love to stay here again if we are in Killarney!

  • This apartment was exactly what my husband and I were wanting to find. And, the top thing on our list (of which we have now suggested to airbnb and the other 3 places we stayed) is to find a MANUAL in the apartment that explains how everything works! Being from another country, we did not know how to work the washer/dryer.
    And, especially the television. This manual also had suggestions for restaurants and ratings and information regarding close by points of interest. It also listed nearby pharmacies and food stores. It told what to do upon checking out and contained emergency information. It was very informative and helpful. The apartment was within walking distance to downtown and that was something we were also looking for. It is a very clean and comfortable place where we felt like welcomed guests. I recommend this apartment for anyone traveling to Killarney.

  • Lucile (et Joe) sont charmants et prévenants.
    Leur appartement est parfait : de très bon goût, très confortable, très bien équipé et très propre.
    Idéalement situé à quelques pas du centre et du National Park ; emplacement idéal pour découvrir Killarney et le comté.

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.
