About Roger O'Sullivan

The Sanctuary is owned by three Seattle residents, two of whom are Irish born expats. Roger is from Killarney, Donny is from Mullingar, and Nate is from Cheboygan, Michigan. Their favorite golf courses in Killarney are Waterville and Killarney Golf Club.

'Our passion of traveling the world to different golf destinations inspired us to build a home that offers both American-quality amenities, and a location central to my beloved home town of Killarney and its world-class golfing and attractions.' Roger O'Sullivan

Roger O'Sullivan purchased this house in 2013

Why Roger O'Sullivan chose Killarney

We had been searching for a unique property in this area for some time, and once this one became available we knew it was what we were looking for. We purchased this property because of its size and location: nestled in a quiet neighborhood, yet close enough to walk into town and enjoy all that Killarney has to offer.

What makes this house unique

The amenities of this home and the proximity to Killarney town are unmatched. A large, modern kitchen is perfect for entertaining, and each room offers a memory foam bed to ensure the perfect night's rest after a day of activities. The spa room offers peace and tranquility that will help you relax and feel pampered.

the amenities were first first and we had plenty of room for our large family

  • 5 of 5

We had been to Killarney before but it was special to explore more of the city. We also took several day trips to surrounding areas.

A true Sanctuary

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Sanctuary this past weekend and were truly impressed by the house. A great location for large or small groups and perfect for golfers. It was close to town and centrally located for all of the major golf courses in the area. Definitely recommend staying here if you plan on visiting the Killarney/Kerry area.

Absolutely Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

If you are a large group (as were we), this is just the perfect place to stay! Each couple and single had their own bedroom with en suite and we all had a place to go so no one got on others' nerves. The house is spacious, well-appointed, and we'll furnished. The single downside would be location, and even that wasn't a problem if you rent a car or use taxis and the Red Bus to get to town or tour the park if it is raining a lot. I would recommend this house to anyone and everyone!! Thank you for sharing it Roger. Matt Dailey 6/'17

A Winner

  • 5 of 5

Our group of eight golfers was very impressed with this house. It is spacious and quite nice. The kitchen is very well equipped and the dining area makes a great place to gather. The location makes a great base from which to play the great courses in the area. We would rent this place again if we are in the area.

Wonderful stay in Killarney

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful home outside of the town center for six nights earlier this month. The home is in great condition, all modern amenities and very comfortable. Great for large groups, we were a family of thirteen and had plenty of room. No trip is without its hiccups and we had an issue with hot water but was resolved quickly by the property manager within 24 hours. Would definitely go back without hesitation.

We had a wonderful time, thank you!!!

Our family of 10 loved our time here!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect rental property for our 10 day trip to Ireland. Killarney was a great location with easy central access to our other locations of interest. The perfect hub.

Large, well decorated and clean property. Roger was very responsive to the minor issues that had. Having the onsite laundry was a lifesaver and the house was well stocked with any of the kitchen gadgets that we needed. On a side note: the long hallway between the kitchen and living room was perfect for endless games of indoor dodgeball! (with a super soft, non-damaging ball, of course).

We can't wait to go back and stay at The Sanctuary again!

A vibrant 'little' town and the incredibly beautiful surrounding countryside makes Killarney a very special place indeed. Brim full of history, heritage, activities, and world class hospitality, Killarney is populated with enthusiastic and welcoming people, and this enthusiasm is reflected in many national and international awards, such as Ireland's Tidiest Town for 2011 and host for the Adventure Travel World Summit in 2014.
