"Our group of 14 friends and family members enjoyed a glorious week in Coolclogher Manor during the first week of June. We were hoping for a spacious, elegant and inviting home in which to spend a week in County Kerry. Our hopes and expectations were exceeded in every way. Mary is the consummate host. Her daily visits to check in on us were always a highlight of the day. Mary loves Coolclogher Manor (and for good reason as it is obviously a labor of love for Mary and Morris), but her ultimate passion seems to lie in doing her very best to make sure her guests have a great holiday experience in Killarney. The amenities and features of Coolclogher are too numerous to list in detail. But what made our stay so truly memorable were the "little" things. We will always remember the cozy fires that were prepared and ready for us when we came in from a cool, rainy Irish day. Our kids enjoyed playing the piano and exploring the stunning 68 acres of gorgeous Irish countryside that surround Coolclogher. We took advantage of the opportunity to have Claude and his staff prepare some meals for us. Not only was the food amazing, but sharing a fabulous meal together in the setting of such a beautiful and elegant dining room created just the right atmosphere. Every bedroom was luxurious and uniquely furnished with beautiful antiques. The "common" areas of the house are all sumptuously decorated, yet warm and inviting. However, everyone's favorite gathering place was the large, country style kitchen. We enjoyed breakfast together around the kitchen table, often with a warm fire going in the fire place. The surrounding area of County Kerry provides a wealth of activities and day trips to keep travelers of various types entertained for weeks on end. The only negative thing about Coolclogher was having to leave at the end of the week!"

"Stayed here for a week with a friend and her son. The three beds and two bath were perfect. The manager was friendly and hospitable. It's a 10-15 minute walk to town - just a good stretch of the legs. Killarney is delightful, and the surrounding attractions (Ross Castle, also within walking distance, Muckross House, Killarney National Park, etc.) are wonderful. We used this as a base for several day trips (Ring of Kerry, Dingle Peninsula, Blarney Castle and Kinsale, Waterford) and found it perfect. I'd highly recommend this - and don't miss eating at Cronin's Restaurant in Killarney."

"We just returned from our stay at The Loft. We loved every minute of our visit. Tim and Bernadette were helpful and friendly hosts. Bernadette had some great restaurant recommendations. The location of the Priory is beautiful, quiet, private, yet convenient to everything. We walked into town each evening (about10-15 mins), and took a cab back. They are easily accessible in front of Killarney Towers. Coming back to the beautiful Loft was so wonderful. We had room to relax and enjoy each other's company. The beds are comfortable, and the showers have great water pressure. It's great having a full kitchen and laundry. This beautiful place feels like home, yet has a magical feeling of times gone by. The only negative is that we had to leave! Do not hesitate to book your stay right away."

"My husband and I traveled with two other couples, so we were 6 altogether. The Prirory was just perfect! It was great having a washer and dryer; the whirlpool tub and steam shower were quite deluxe. The location is quiet and peaceful even though it is in the lively city of Killarney. We did walk to town on several occasions and found that it took about 15 minutes -- no trouble at all. It was a great place in a great location and my only hope is that we can get back there again someday soon."
