About Tim O'Donoghue

Bernadette and Tim O’Donoghue met in The Windy City of Chicago a few years back. We acquired the property in 2002. We then returned from Chicago in 2004.

Bernadette was a paralegal secretary and is now a stay at home Mom and an excellent baker, I am an electrician by trade but got into construction during my 14 years in Chicago. I restored several old houses and classic vintage apartment buildings during my time there. I coupled this experience with Bernadette’s keen eye and interior design savvy to create some wonderful finishes and unusual touches. We began the colossal rehab project in 2004 to restore the Priory to its former glory ,it was basically completed it in 2007 or is it ever complete I like to ask myself ?

We pride ourselves in welcoming you into our place.

Tim O'Donoghue purchased this house in 2002

What makes this house unique

We are in a key location,a ten minute walk from town but it feels like we are in the heart of the countryside where you cannot hear a sound by night.

You will get a truly magnificent house to yourself where you can enjoy pure luxury. You can cook when you want and have the full use of the 1.5 acre property on private grounds. You can sit back and relax in the front of the open hearth fire sipping a nice Irish whiskey or reading a good book with the sweet smell of turf burning away.

The Master Bath has a Jacuzzi and Steam Shower that will soothe the soul after a hectic day.

We are on site owners who are here to help you in any way you require and assure a wonderful stay. We have invaluable knowledge about the local area from cultural information to hikes, local food joints to off the beaten track drives. We can organize in-house chef, or poetry recital or to a music session.

You will live like a King on a Vacation that you will never forget.

We like to tell our guests ''We are as near or as far as you wish.'

The Priory is perfection!!!

  • 5 of 5
We could not have asked for a better place to make our home base for our vacation to Ireland! We are family of 16 (ranging in age from 6 months to 73 years and everything in between) and The Priory and Killarney provided us with the vacation of a lifetime! The home is spectacular and fit all of us comfortably (we also rented the Loft for overflow sleeping), Killarney is a wonderful, family friendly town and the Priory owners and their children (and dog) could not have been nicer! Almost immediately we felt right at home! The house was immaculate and provided all of the comforts of home and then some! We enjoyed strolls into town, hikes and bike rides through Muckross House and the national park, and day tours to Dingle and the Ring of Kerry (organized by the owner of the Priory and led by his friend and his 18 passenger bus!). The breakfast that the owners made for us the first day started our vacation off on a high note, and the multi-generational soccer games on the front lawn left us with great stories to tell our friends and family back home! Thank you for sharing your amazing home and equally wonderful family with us! We will never forget our time at the Priory!

Irish Magic!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 16 spent an amazing 10 days in the glorious Priory. Every last detail was sheer perfection - to the welcome Irish breakfast, to the luxurious flowery grounds and ample soccer field, the evening peat fires, the rain shower heads, the scrumptious bedding, the fantastic kitchen for morning coffee and gathering. Most of all what will forever stand is the warmth shared by their family with ours We most definitely felt more like old friends catching up than borders at a hotel. The owner tips for what to see were spot on, and we took them up on every one of them. Their connections within the Killarney community proved most helpful in renting a bus to see Dingle and Ring of Kerry, hiring a caterer to come to the house and cook an amazing Irish meal, and arranging for us to march in the first annual Killarney 4th of July parade. You made our trip magical and for that we are forever grateful!

Wonderful setup for large groups

Great, authentic large house and property. Innkeepers were wonderful, friendly, accomodating. Their kids even joined in our soccer games out in the large front yard. Great location, walk to everything in downtown Killarney.

Priory Vacation Stay

  • 5 of 5
The Clan consisting of Six adults and two grand daughters arrived by train from Dublin and were met at the train station and began our wonderful time in Killarney. Bernadette and Tim were amazing hosts and made our 50th anniversary stay perfect in all ways. The house and grounds were well maintained and the house with all its features was amazing. There was plenty of space and activities for for everyone to get involved both inside and out on the lawn. Our grand daughters enjoyed the kids zip line, air hockey and the interaction with the other younger guests. We enjoyed the state of art kitchen and Tim's welcome hot breakfast the first day in town.We highly recommend the Priory for family groups like ours and other adult groups that want plenty of space to relax in comfort and old world charm while enjoying the pubs and national parksOr just sitting by the fire and enjoying a home cooked meal with a nice glass of wine and enjoying the family.

Best Part of our Ireland Vacation

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I traveled to Ireland for 18 days with three other couples. I think we all agreed that our week at The Priory was the highlight of our trip. Although the house has a history and character that contribute to its overall warmth and charm, the modern amenities, such as the gourmet kitchen and lovely bathrooms, made it extremely comfortable for all 8 of us. After full days of golf and/or site seeing, drinking wine in front of an inviting fire in the well appointed living room was the perfect end to each day. Our hosts not only suggested fun and wonderful nearby activities, but they also provided us with excellent directions and sometimes arranged for transportation. The pubs and restaurants they recommended were always just what we had hoped to experience in Ireland. The house and the lovely grounds (including an herb garden) made us feel like we were in the country, but we were actually within walking distance of Killarney. When any of us return to Ireland, we will definitely return to The Priory.

This is a remarkable place top stay in Killarney. As my wife remarked, "This is the only place we have stayed where the actual house and cottages are more beautiful than the pictures." Tim and Bernadette were marvelous hosts. Very helpful with our travels in Killarney and Southwest Ireland. We spent a lovely week in Killarney and much credit goes to our hosts. We, there were 7 of us, look forward to returning.
