"Four of us stayed at the Priory for a week. It is beautifully decorated with new decor embedded in the charm of this old charming building. The full size kitchen was perfect. The two bedrooms en suite, were both spacious and well appointed. Out hosts were very helpful with information and getting us on at tour at the last minute. We loved the wood and peat burning stove, making things nice and cozy. We enjoyed the homemade scones as well. The location is excellent allowing us to easily walk into town, and drive to nearby tourist sights. I highly recommend the priory and wouldn't hesitate to stay here during our next visit to Killarney."

Most amazing place EVER! Perfect for any size group...
"Our family stumbled upon the O'Donohue's Priory property when we booked lodging for 4 in fall of '14 to scout for our planned August '15 family reunion - what we found was the PERFECT location for our group of 25 - and now we have memories for a lifetime! Last week at the Priory was a dream come true...
There are several "cottages" around a picturesque courtyard all located on a quiet, private property. Each cottage affords ample privacy for independent travelers...but in our case...it provided the IDEAL location for all of us to be together. This was the trip of a lifetime for our family and we would HIGHLY recommend the Priory to groups of any size.
The Priory itself is a large house that we chose to be the hub of our stay due to our large group. The kitchen is AMAZING and provided all we needed for big family meals. We had ample seating plus space for games, quiet time etc. The bedrooms are spacious with quality mattresses and the bathrooms are modern and clean with GREAT water pressure in the beautifully tiled showers. Laundry, WiFi plus a few 110V outlets were added bonuses.
The location is perfect...close (easy walk) to town but quiet and secluded. There is ample parking on site and cabbies arrive within minutes for adventures farther away. We arranged for 2 all-days bus trips to the Ring of Kerry and the Dingle Peninsula; explored the National Forest; biked the lake; hiked up Torc mountain; and walked all over town! Our grand finale was a night at the Killarney Brewing Company - complete with supper, GREAT beer (what I wouldn't give for a Devil's Helles Lager right now) and two balladeers that entertained us for hours. Be sure to visit KBC!
The only downside to our trip was leaving that special place...but that makes room for YOU! Please give the Tim, Bernadette and all of the O'Donohues (including Mazie and Oscar!) our best when you get there!"

"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."
