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.

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.

WONDERFUL VACATION

  • 5 of 5
The Priory was an exceptional choice for our week long stay in Ireland. Upon arrival Tim and Bernadette were extremely welcoming and offered great ideas for our stay. The first morning we were treated to (a delicious) breakfast from Tim before our day of travel. Throughout the week they stopped by to make sure we were comfortable and well off. I would recommend the Priory to anyone looking for a relaxing retreat!

We searched for weeks to find the right place in Killarney to spend a week with our family of 7 adults. In baseball terms we hit a "home run" when we found The Priory. It is the one place we have ever been where the photo images fail to due justice to the actual property - as beautiful as the images are, they can't capture how appealing this property is in real life. Everywhere you look there is a marvel of loving restoration and ingenuity. All of this is wrapped up in a place where old world charm meets 21st century convenience and technology.

Couple that with the wonderful family who own the property and graciously gave of their time to help us find our way while traveling Ireland's Southwest; at the same time maintaining a "home base" within walking distance of Killarney. The O'Donoghue's knowledge and suggestions made for an exceptional vacation in Ireland. This is the perfect vacation spot. We hope to return.

FUN FOR THE FAMILY AT THE PRIORY!

  • 5 of 5
From our arrival in rainy Killarney to some amazingly sunny days we had such a nice stay with Tim and Bernadette. They were the most incredible hosts. Tim and his daughter made us breakfast one morning and then we got warm scones another. Tim provides a wealth of information for any ideas, hiking, shopping, the ring of kerry, and exploring Dingle. My son especially liked playing basketball and soccer with Tim's sons on the front lawn. The kitchen has everything you would need to cook a great meal and there is plenty of spaces for a big group to enjoy. The nightly shuffle games were an unexpected treat! It is amazing how a simple game can cause such great competition among family members! It is a trip we will always remember!
