This was exactly what we needed. I thoroughly recommend staying here if you're visiting Killarney.. Or if you just want to relax in a country setting.
We traveled from Dublin to Cork and then to Killarney. They were fun but hectic and the rooms were small.
When we got to Riona's place there was a sense of "aaaahhhhh..."
A place to stretch your legs, a place to relax, a place without traffic, a place to wash your clothes (yay!) and the best hosts you could imagine.
The price is right and the location is only 10-15 min from the town center.
Paddy and Riona are quite accommodating, they will provide you with places to go, recommend what the locals know, and absolutely make you laugh.
I would absolutely come back to stay.
Riona and Patty are the most welcoming hosts ever. Inviting us into their home for coffee as soon as we got there. Their sense of humor and stories we will never forget. Their cottage is just the cutest and super clean. Exactly as pictured. Thank you so much for your hospitality. Jerry and Kim
I cannot say enough great things about Riona and Paddy and their lovely cottage. The cottage is exactly as shown in the pictures and has everything needed for a wonderful stay. What the pictures do not show is the warm and welcoming hearts of Riona and Paddy. I truly felt like I could stay there forever and they would be happy with that. I didn't want for anything while there and wish I could have stayed longer. The cottage is spotless and the grounds are amazing. Paddy and Riona have created a special place to be left alone and chill if that's what you want or to sit and chat with them and their sweet little dog Dora. If you are looking for paradise in Ireland you would be doing yourself a favor to book this beautiful cottage. I began missing them as soon as the car pulled out of the driveway....some people have the ability to make you feel that you belong in their space and Riona and Paddy are two of those people. I am so thankful to them for the sense of belonging and peace they provided for me. Next trip to Ireland, I will be heading straight for their cottage and I may never leave :)
We have had a lovely 2 night stay. It was everything we had hoped for!
We are definitely coming back..
We began driving from Killarney and despite Riona's spot on directions were unsure when we pulled up to the home. But Riona ran out to let us know we were in the right place, helping us even to back the car into the windy road. Riona invited us in for drink with her and Paddy, and the laughs began! Riona showed us around the amazingly stocked and superbly comfortable cottage, which already had a roaring fire. We felt so at home in the space that we didn't want to leave the next morning. A stop in to say goodbye led to an hour of laughing and conversation over coffee. Coffee was accompanied by priceless recommendations for our travels on the Ring of Kerry and the Dingle peninsula. If we ever find ourselves in Ireland again, Riona and Paddy's will be a special visit in our trip.
Riona & Paddy were great hosts - they were very friendly and entertaining and gave us good recommendations for dinner and our trip around the Ring of Kerry! We loved arriving to find a fire already lit and stocked kitchen. We had everything we needed and felt right at home. Lovely house and hosts!
My girlfriend and I had a great time staying out in the Cottage (known as the Cow shed as that is what it was converted from) for a couple of nights last week! Riona was away on the first night however Paddy made us feel more than welcome, first by inviting us in for a beer, then recommending us some things to do which we would otherwise have missed (like the gap of Dunloe), and finally he recommended a few places in nearby Killorglin to us so that we could go out for dinner, and offered to give us a lift there! The hospitality was astounding, and when we met Riona the following day she was very friendly too. The Cottage itself is very cosy with the fire going and the kitchen has everything you will need if you fancied having a night in, like we did on our second night there. We had a great time, and my girlfriend didn't want to leave - high praise indeed!
Riona and Paddy were incredible hosts. From the moment we pulled up to the house to the morning we drove away, they were both very welcoming and hospitable. We stayed 2 days in Killarney and this was the perfect location and size for 2 of us. The airbnb home is actually a renovated cowshed; an open room with a lofted bedroom that is quite spacious and comfortable. They had the fire lit and roaring for us when we arrived, and that set the tone for the entire stay. What an amazing stay; if you're thinking of traveling to Killarney I would highly recommend Riona and Paddy's cottage, we can't wait to visit them again soon!
Riona & Paddy's place is about 15-20 minutes outside of Killarney in a delightful country setting. The cottage is cozy and was fully stocked with all I needed for my stay. Riona is a gifted photographer with some of her work being displayed throughout the cottage. She and Paddy live in the adjoining home and had a remarkable sixth-sense of when to welcome me in for a drink (which was often) and when to leave me be. I was welcomed unreservedly into their home with friends & other family members present. Wonderful and extended conversation was frequently the order of the day and entirely great fun. Their recommendations for eating out were spot on as were suggestions for a wide variety of Ring of Kerry activities. Local walks were invigorating as the rural nature of the property provided a quiet serenity that I enjoyed immensely. For a peaceful stay with gracious and fun hosts, I can't recommend Riona & Paddy's cottage higher.
Riona and Paddy are the most welcoming hosts I have stayed with using Air BnB. The house is lovely, comfortable and very tastefully decorated. Riona had a big fire lit for when we arrived which made for a very cosy atmosphere – there were also some chocolates for us on arrival! I would definitely recommend staying with Riona and Paddy when in this part of the world – they are extremely warm and friendly and can’t do enough to help you and all in all the rates are very reasonable for what you get.
