Our Reviews

My mother and I stayed one night in July 2017 in Woodlawn House in a twin room. We were greeted warmly by the host, Wayne. He was very helpful with questions about the area and we had a great time in Killarney. We stayed in 8 other B&Bs around Ireland and Woodlawn House was in our bottom two due to the smell of the room. It smelled as if the carpet had been heavily doused in Febreeze to cover a stronger odor, and it gave us both headaches. There was only one set of threadbare towels in the bathroom as well. I'm sure both of these things could have been amended if there was any mention of it to the hosts, but we didn't want to trouble anyone. Breakfast was well done, with three hot made-to-order options to choose from and a nice spread of freshly baked bread and fresh fruit. S S S S S

The owner was quite friendly and helpful with suggestions of how to best explore the area. Overall it was an average stay--the room was very dusty and the bathroom towels were small and ratty. We had old comforters on the bed similar to a cheap hotel room. B&B located within walking distance of Killarney city center and easy drive to hikes and such. Breakfast was pleasant with a reasonable variety of dishes. S S S S S

Had 2 lovely rooms for our family, Wayne helped us plan the best way to maximize our brief stay with a wonderful trip on a boat through the Killarney lakes and then hiking the Gap of Dunloe, good restaurant recommendations and breakfast was great. Overall an excellent t visit and wish could have stayed longer. May 2017 S S S S S

We had a wonderful time at this bed and breakfast. I have visited multiple bed and breakfasts in Ireland and I would have to say this ranks among the best. The facility was wonderful the family is wonderful the service was A+. The food was Simply Delicious. it was my 75 year old mothers first trip to Ireland and I am so glad she got a chance to see real Irish hospitality. S S S S S
Frank R Anderson - United States (November, 2016)
Excellent B&B that I highly recommend. We had three rooms for two nights, our rooms were spacious and clean. Our host Wayne was great, giving us good tips about the Ring of Kerry. The Guesthouse is only a short walk to the city center. Breakfast was awesome. Plenty of parking. S S S S S

The friendly reception we received on arrival lasted throughout our stay. The staff couldn't have been friendlier. The room was lovely and comfortable and the shower was fabulous! Breakfast in the morning was delicious and the price for our stay was so reasonable. I will definately stay again!
Noreen Vaughan, Co Cork Ireland

The location is perfect for exploring the area by car but also within an easy walk to town. The staff were very helpful, the accomodations were very clean, quite and comfortable. Without hesitation I would recommend Woodlawn House.

Tripadvisor Reviews


We were visiting Ireland for the first time and didn't want to stay in an hotel as they are so impersonal, and the only way to get to know the people is to mix with them, we were not disappointed,from the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome and special by the owner Ciara her sister Cliona and father,nothing was too much trouble,they booked our trips for us and reserved a table at a great restaurant. The breakfast is a mighty experience with plenty of choices from the "starters" to be followed by the choice of anything from a boiled egg to the iconic "full Irish"
The room and bed were very comfortable and everything including the en-suite bathroom scrupulously clean. If your ever going to Ireland to see the breathtaking scenery you will love staying at this wonderful guesthouse,which is in actual fact like a small hotel but much more personal,run by special people who deserve all the success they undoubtably will achieve.
We will be making a point of returning to Ireland and the first priority will be to book into the Woodlawn.

"In our weeks of travel, of the many B&B's, this was by far the BEST."

I found this B&B on line (B&B Network) and to tell you the truth with our experiences with photos matching the real thing, we kept our expectations fairly low. We were relieved and delighted to pull up to a beautifully manicured front yard. Even better than the pictures! And it just got better from there. The rooms were immaculate and spacious, tastefully decorated. A couple in our group had a large window that overlooked the mountains of Killarney National Park. Location is off a quiet street. Delicious breakfast in a spacious dining room. Fabulous hospitality, very warm and friendly...felt like home. Our only disappointment we were only able to stay one night! Thanks for a great visit to Killarney!

"We couldn't have wished for a better place to stay!"

After doing some research on the internet I chose Woodlawn House to take my parents for a week's break at the beginning of September - we certainly weren't disappointed. This guesthouse is far better than many hotels I have stayed in - the rooms were very large and spacious (even my single room which was a good size double) and my parent's room had an enormous bathroom. There was a large choice of menu for breakfast - all equally well presented and well cooked (yes, we tried the full Irish, the porridge (with apricots and honey), the pancakes, the scrambled eggs with smoked salmon - all delicious!), but what made our stay particularly memorable was the lovely host Ciara and her sister. They were both so welcoming and friendly and Ciara was always so helpful when we came to planning our day over the breakfast table. I would highly recommend Woodlawn House to anyone. It is positioned just an ideal 10 minute walk from Killarney town - a great place for something to eat (we really liked Macs on the main street), to wander around the many shops which stayed open until late and we also enjoyed the live Irish music coming from so many of the bars around the town. We spent the week touring the area - the Ring of Kerry, the Dingle, the Gap of Dunloe (a must in a jaunting car), Muckross House - and much more. This was the first time I had spent a week in Ireland and I must say the friendly people, the fantastic scenery , the great food and superb accommodation means I will hope to be back before too long.
