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 cottage in 2002

I grew up in Killarney, where my parents owned a camping site and I truly loved meeting visitors on a daily basis. We have 4 children and we wanted to raise them here in Ireland, so we said we would give it a shot and here we are.When this property became available we realized how unique it was and what a fantastic opportunity it would be to own The Priory.

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 quiet private house to yourself where you can come and go as you please. 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. You will get the real feel of Irish living and live like we live ourselves while visiting in your home away from home.

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.

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

Outstanding "home away from home"

Outstanding "home away from home"
  • 5 of 5
We have fallen in love with Ireland, especially the SW area. We rented Teach Mor for 7 nights and wanted to stay another 7. This cottage is exactly as described and pictured. It is exceptionally clean, has everything you might need for cooking; the queen size beds are very comfortable with crisp, white linens. The very large closets in each bedroom have many storage shelves as well as ample space to hang clothes. (There are 2 twin beds upstairs, but we had no need to use them.) The en suite bath has a large shower with a bench which was perfect for one in our group who has mobility problems. The main bath has a jacuzzi as well as a shower..lovely. The washer and dryer worked well and it was nice to do laundry mid-week. While you are close to the town of Killarney, you feel like you are in the countryside. It is so quiet. From the living room window you look out onto a pasture with the friendliest cows! Tim and Bernadette were gracious hosts, welcoming us, advising us where to eat, what to see. Tim made arrangements for a taxi to pick us up and drop us off at the cottage for one great day's adventure to the Gap of Dunloe. He provided very detailed maps and directions for " his" tour of the Ring of Kerry and also the Dingle Peninsula. Move over, Rick Steves--we saw more following Tim's itinerary! An added surprise was a basket of warm, delicious, homemade scones delivered by Tim one morning. Thank you, Bernadette. Parking is on the property, off street, well lighted, and very safe. We have rented apartments and cottages in Paris and the Cotswolds, but never have we had such a clean and inviting home as "Teach Mor". We would love to return.

Excellent cottage au calme

  • 5 of 5
Ce cottage est très bien aménagé, les pièces sont spacieuses, de nombreux équipements et rangements. La literie est très confortable (pour moi très important pour une location où dormir!). C'est au calme et très joli. Killarney permet de rayonner facilement dans la région. L'accueil et les conseils de Tim sont également très appréciables. Le seul très léger point à améliorer : il manque un peu de vaisselles pour 4 (les couverts), alors pour 6 cela doit être juste. Merci à Tim.

Family vacation in Ireland

  • 5 of 5
We loved our visit to Ireland and staying at the Priory was just perfect. We stayed at the Loft, which was very well maintained. It is quite spacious with 3 bedroom and 2 baths. We enjoyed the vaulted celiing and a great kitchen with everything you could possibly need. After a day of site seeing, coming back to the house and enjoying a nice warm fire in the family room was a great endhing to the day. Tim and Bernadette were very helpful in guiding us around the countryside and her scones are delicious! The courtyard is so charming and very well maintained. I would highly reccommend this as the place to stay. It is very convenient to many wonderful sites in Ireland, several in the immediate area. Can't wait to go back!

Perfect Irish Cottage

  • 5 of 5
This was our family's first trip to Ireland and we decided to use Killarney as our home base for the week. The Priory was the perfect home! It is exactly what we needed, space for all kids to play, lounge, explore! The gardens are lovely, there is a soccer field, basketball hoop, and playground. Something for everyone. There are plenty of places to eat nearby so we walked everywhere. The walk into town is quite easy and our five year old was able to manage it daily. The owners couldn't have been any sweeter to our family. They genuinely wanted us to have whatever we needed, gave excellent advice as to where to eat and what adventures to add to my list of activities. The Loft is clean and has every amenity you would have in your own home. The charm of The Priory is something you can not get from a hotel. My children are already asking when we can go back to The Priory, the perfect Irish cottage.

Another wonderful visit

  • 5 of 5
We've stayed in The Loft at The Priory for two consecutive years. It's a wonderful place--warm, inviting and very attractive. We plan on visiting again very soon.

First of all, the website gives a true and accurate description. There are no exaggerations or misleading facts.

We have visited Ireland and stayed with Tim and Bernadette twice in the last two years. Our first trip in 2012 was a scouting trip to see if The Priory was as good as it appeared on the website. We had a great time, and this past June we brought our adult family with us to introduce them to Ireland. Without exception, everyone felt that the visit could not be better, and Tim and Bernadette were instrumental in making it that way.

Tim and Bernadette have made the grounds and the buildings warm and inviting. We stayed at the Loft, the three-bedroom unit. It is very comfortable, and we felt that we truly belonged there. Tim and Bernadette were always available and helped us plan our activities. While many of their suggestions were the types that could be found in travel books such as the Ring of Kerry, they also gave us ideas of other, unique places to visit such as Mizen Head. These were really great places to visit, and we would have never known about them without their guidance.

They also know Killarney very well and helped us with entertainment and restaurants. The Priory is only a fifteen-minute walk to downtown and we found that walking was a great way to see the city and not have to worry about parking. They introduced us to White Gates Pub. We enjoyed several evenings there with the Three Sisters singing group, plus a night of traditional Irish dancing. Fabulous!

In summary, Tim and Bernadette really care about their guests and strive to make the visits fun, comfortable and interesting. They will go out of their way to assist and do not mind offering several choices for things to do in the area. Their website gives all the details and you can trust their honesty. The Priory is a special place and you will undoubtedly feel like you are in a second home.

We feel like they are now friends, and we highly recommend them to others seeking a wonderful place that is operated by wonderful people.

Perfect vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5
I fell in love with this rental looking at the pictures online and decided I must stay here. It turned out to be perfect and I am so glad that we did!!! Tim and Bernadette are super friendly and helpful giving very useful touring tips. Staying at the cottage for a week was just what we needed after driving around for a week, just having a place to crash, to hang up all of our clothes, do laundry, hang out and play games. It was a great base for day trips. We spent a day in dingle, ring of kerry, cobh, kinsale, cork, Jameson and just spent some time in Killarney. Killarney is a great town that is easily within walking distance from the cottage but far enough to be away from the hustle and bustle. The house was very spacious and clean. It was stocked with practical items which made it helpful to at least bide us some time to get to the grocery store. There is a bike event around the ring of kerry in July that was going on while we were there, if I would have known about it I might have joined in but hope to come back and be part of the festivites! When I do, I will be staying here at the priory again! Book early because they sure fill up quickly! Can't wait to be back there again and maybe stay longer!
