Our host was very welcoming and friendly, explained the area to us and made us feel at home. The apartment was exceptional, very spacious and modern and the location excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here.
Joe and Lucille are kind hosts. We really appreciated the clean and spacious appartment. Well situated, a short walk to the city. We highly recommand this location.
The hosts Joe and Lucille communicated clearly about checking in. They had the place clean and ready with some welcome provisions such as OJ, coffee, tea and biscuits.
It is in a quiet cul-de-sac, and when the clouds finally cleared, we got a nice view from the lovely back garden of the local mountains. The place was much bigger than two people need, but that was good for us to lay out our luggage and what not. We appreciated the washing machine and dryer and clothes lines under a balcony. Our hosts were kind enough to receive packages for us and check in on us a few times. There is a nice pedestrian shortcut into town that we made use of.
I had a very good stay in Killarney. The apartment was spacious, clean, and comfortable. Checking in was easy. Parking was easy. The apartment is about a 10-15 minute walk from the center of Killarney. This was a good place to serve as a base for exploring County Kerry by car while coming home to a place with restaurants nearby
Everything about Lucille and Joe's apartment is first-rate! They were very welcoming. Easy and timely communication before we arrived. Friendly welcome and orientation once we were there. They know the area and especially the hiking and birds. The flat is very nice. Clean, modern and comfortable with really great beds and cozy bedding. Baths are large and modern and there is plenty of hot water. The pretty little garden out the door is filled with flowers, and thanks to the feeders, also filled with birds. There is a beautiful view of the mountains.
We had such a great time staying at Lucille and Joe's apartment. It was just as described, and provided plenty of space for the 5 of us. They even picked us up at the bus station when we arrived! It was nice to have our own private entrance and walking to downtown and the national park took less than 10 minutes. I could not possibly think of anywhere else I would rather stay the next time I am there!
A great self contained apartment with a lovely garden and views and easy access to the town centre. Plenty of parking in a lovely neighborhood with very friendly but not intrusive hosts. Plenty of local information and overall a great experience. Would love to have stayed longer and would definitely stay here 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.
