If you don't feel the beauty and friendliness of Ireland after staying at the Carriglea House it's time to pack it in.
Wonderful family vacation!
I don't know if there's enough space for a complete picture of our wonderful time at Carriglea House.
The location was perfect, the views magical! The hosts, Eileen and John were attentive and fun to be with (we saw Eileen more frequently, but John was always around and available as well). We loved learning about the family history of the home and because of this - the area. The beds were very comfortable, it s quiet and peaceful for sleeping.
As it was a bit cool, the kitchen with the AGA oven was a centerpiece - felt weird at first and now we'd like one! It cooks perfectly! The kitchen was large enough that all of us could be in there at the same time.
The location afforded us the ability to explore nature easily - all of the available hikes, as well as day trips to wonderful cities and tours. We recommend the Ring of Beara as it was so beautiful and remote! We loved the little town of Kenmore!
They care a lot about responsible stewardship of the land and we were also happy about this- recycling was available and easy.
Waking up to the view with the horses and donkey and having a cup of tea or coffee and quietly reading to get the day started was another favorite!
Perfect for the 13 of us - our 6 children, their partners and our new grand baby - we were all perfectly cared for!
We would happily come back!

A Delightful Week Beyond Expectations!
The VRBO posting for the Carriglea House appeared too good to be true. We found it to be far better.
Setting at the end of a long driveway off the Ring of Kerry road, Carriglea has sweeping views of the lakes and mountains of Killarney National Park. Breathtaking, peaceful, relaxing.
The interior of the house is as beautiful as the exterior, configured just as depicted in the pictures. Bedrooms are roomy; most with private baths. The formal parlor provided a perfect setting for our grandchildren to put on Irish Dancing Exhibitions each evening. The house was clean, comfortable and welcoming.
The owners, Eileen and John Beazley who live in a separate cottage on the property, were gracious hosts and provided special touches
to make our stay enjoyable. The welcome basket of groceries and additional treats were most appreciated.
Our week in Killarney was wonderful!
The Carriglea House provided our family with the perfect environment to experience and enjoy this part of Ireland.
We look forward to coming back in the future.
Bring Your Clan
The Carriglea House is perfect for a family group. With 7 BR’s; a huge Dining Room; formal parlor and drawing room; and a large kitchen it easily accomodates your clan. The grounds are magnificent plus 2 horses, donkey, and an adorable cat make it a pleasure to enjoy the outdoors. A bit of a long walk to Killarney center but very easy access to the National Park just across the road.
Mahoney's from USA
We had a group of 20 people and rented the manor and 1 cottage. Our stay in Killarney was wonderful and everything went smoothly and we just fell in love with Eileen. The manor, cottage and grounds are beautiful and welcoming. Plus, we lucked out with the weather, blue skies with some clouds. We hired Kerry Coaches to take us around the Ring of Kerry and Dingle Peninsula, the driver was so skilled along the narrow roads. We also hired Caraway Catering to bring full Irish breakfast in most morning, it was amazing! We cannot thank Eileen and John enough for their hospitality and ease with communications and conversations. We will miss you, your beautiful home and cannot wait to come back! The Mahoney Family :)
Awesome Family Trip
Carriglea House is in a perfect and serene location, surrounded by beautiful scenery, yet within a short drive (or 30 min. walk) of lively Killarney town. The house was historic, pretty, roomy, comfortable, and clean. Host John and Eileen couldn't have been nicer.....very warm and welcoming, helpful when we needed it, but allowing privacy for us at the same time.
Carriglea house is ideally located overlooking the Killarney lakes and adjoining the Killarney National Park. It has 30 acres of private grounds and mature gardens. It has an unrivalled and enviable location only minutes from Killarney town but still in the country, all of the amenities are on your doorstep. for instance.
Muckross House and gardens, Muckross Abbey, The Ring of Kerry, The Killarney Lakes and The Kerry Way are all just a few minutes walk away. It is an ideal central location to explore The Ring of Beara and The Ring of Dingle and Skellig Michel. Also you are ideally located to do The Gap of Dunloe and our own specially designed trip involving a taster of The Gap of Dunloe, The Killarney Lakes and the Kerry Way.
