Good, clean b&b, in walking distance to Killarney. Excellent breakfast and a good, friendly, welcoming landlady. The only downside was that our room had an unnecessary single bed in addition to the double bed which tended to make the room a bit cramped. We could however see open rooms on the other side of the corridor which were much more...

We only found The Harp after an extensive search online but are so glad we did. Joan is lovely and really helpful, nothing is ever a bother to her. The breakfast is fresh and tasty, the room and bathroom were spotless and the location of the B&B perfect (not in the noisy center of town but only about 15 minutes...

Such a lovely and friendly place! We stayed one night and couldn't have picked a better place. The rooms are clean and tidy. With only a kilometre from town made it perfect for us to take a walk in to Killarney. Very happy with our stay recommend it warmly.

We enjoyed a wonderful stay at this beautiful B&B. Joan was very warm and welcoming. The rooms were very clean. The breakfast was delicious. We all had the traditional Irish breakfast. The living room was warm and available to relax in after a long day of travel. Highly recommend The Harp!!

My daughter and I booked for one night but ended up staying for two nights as we were so pleased with the accommodation, breakfast and genuine welcome we received. I asked for a dinner recommendation on the first night as my daughter is vegan. We were recommended The Stonechat, which was great, and at breakfast my daughter was provided with...

We stayed here a few years ago when attending an Irish dancing competition in a nearby hotel. The hostess, Joan, was lovely; very friendly and helpful. She made a great cooked breakfast and pancakes too! Great location and accommodation. I would recommend this B&B to anyone.

Spent 2 wonderful days in Killarney last June on our short trip to Ireland. Excellent B&B, the best breakfast we had so far. Definitely recommend the brown bread (homemade, freshly made, wonderful!). Owner gives really good advice on things to do in Killarney and how to organize hikes in Gap of Dunlow without having to join one of the expensive...

I can't say enough good things about Joan. We signed up for 2 nights and because of a medical emergency we stayed an extra night. Joan was magnificent, she really cared and was not just going through the motions. She arranged for medical care to the point of having a doctor come to the house. I believe if she didn't...

The owner was very nice, the B&B was very nice and clean, breakfast was excellent. One little glitch - our room was pretty small and required turn signals for us to navigate. I think we just ended up on the "short end of the stick", as it seemed that other rooms were larger. We were only there for one night,...

Four of us stayed at The Harp and what a brilliant place it is. Nothing was too much trouble for Joan. She is such a lovely lady and made us feel like one of the family. The lounge was so comfortable with recliner sofas and plenty of tea, coffee and biscuits. The bedroom was spacious and a fabulous shower in...
