Overview

Woodlawn House Rental Photos and Description

Spacious detached 9-11 bedroom luxury house

The distinction between ‘house’ and ‘home’ is an Irish one and there’s no place quite like it in an Irish person’s heart. Welcoming our guests and making them feel ‘at home’ is the most important part of what we strive to do here at Killarney Manor House (formally Valentine House) since we decided to offer our ‘home’ for guest house rentals or vacation rentals. Owned and managed by the Casey family Killarney Manor house is conveniently located only 5 -10 min walk from Killarney town centre and boasts 9 en-suite bedrooms (two further available) which can accommodate upto 22 people comfortably. Full accommodation includes large lounge and sitting room both with beautiful marble surround open fires , spacious fully equipped modern kitchen, dining room with log burning stove for your comfort, games room with full size pool table, laundry room, 9 en-suite bedrooms with top of the range king size beds (two additional bedrooms available on request) as well as an outdoor seating area with BBQ perfect for alfresco dining.

In addition to being only a short stroll to Killarney's world famous National Park, home of the majestic McGillycuddy Reeks, the highest mountain range in Ireland and the breathtaking Lakes of Killarney, Killarney Manor House is close to all amenities. Within minutes stroll of the property you will find a choice of grocery stores, churches, cathedral, post office, train station, bus station, spas etc., all you could wish for and in the evenings there is a wealth of traditional Irish Pubs where you can enjoy Irish music and dance at its finest as well as a host of highly recommended restaurants to choose from.

As well as this our guests will find themselves in the midst of a golfer’s paradise. The Kerry Region is famous for its golf courses and has long since attracted Golfers from around the world and Killarney is the ideal base. Killarney Golf & Fishing Club (Host to the Irish Open in 2010 & 2011), Kenmare, Ballybunion (World class links course), Tralee and Waterville are just some of the courses that can be found in the county of Kerry and indeed the famous Old Head of Kinsale course is also only a short drive away .

Killarney Manor House provides guests with a perfect base from which to take day trips including the Ring of Kerry, the Gap of Dunloe, Torc Waterfall and the Ring of Beara and much more. Local activities include fishing, hill walking, cycling, horse riding to mention a few. We would be delighted to offer our guests any advice or recommendations on our local attractions or organise any trips or activities upon request.

Killarney Manor House is the perfect setting for large family gatherings and indeed a base for a group of friends golfing or exploring in the Kerry region. We hope you will remember your stay with a smile.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family recently completed a family vacation for 15 people (7 adults, 8 children) to Killarney where we stayed in the Killarney Manor House, formerly named the “Valentine House.” The house was the perfect house for our large family. It is massive, consisting of 11 bedrooms, 9 en-suite bathrooms, and an extremely large formal dining room. There is even a courtyard in the back of the house where the younger children ran around and played. Everyone had space to play in. When we first entered the house there was a jug of milk in the refrigerator and breakfast cereal, bread, and rolls for breakfast the next morning. That was a nice touch. Catriona Casey was wonderful. She greeted us and gave us excellent choices for dining and entertainment. Further, she was indeed a pleasure to work with when we booked the house. Our vacation was truly memorable and we will have fond memories of this amazing house.

Killarney Manor House

  • 5 of 5

I thoroughly recommend this house, we had a fabulous week, easily accommodates 22 but has a homely feel, it's clean and tidy and comes with all the amenities. It is a short stroll to the town and is ideally located for all activities.

I would highly recommend the chef Rob and his assistant Andrea. We had a superb meal and wished we had booked them for more nights though we thoroughly enjoyed using the barbecue too. I cannot thank Catriona enough for all her help in organising our stay, every question was answered and more.

Killarney Manor House

  • 5 of 5

The property was welcoming and so comfortable especially for our one night with 23 people! On average, there were 20 people in the house. We were never crowded and everyone had their space. The kitchen was FULLY equipped and the kitchen table was a wonderful gathering place for groups throughout the day. We sat 21 people for dinner on 2 different nights!

Everyone was delighted with the sleeping arrangement and especially having their own bathroom.

We were only a 10 minute walk from town for eating and shopping. If we didn't care to go into town, Kane's was a great pub just around the corner.

The staff was always just a phone call away to answer our questions and make sightseeing suggestions.

We were there for 2 weeks and could have stayed much longer!

Killarney offers so much to see and do and it is convenient to go sightseeing all over Ireland.

We could not have dreamed of a better vacation for our family and friends! Thank you, Catriona.

Killarney Memory House

This house is fabulous and was perfect for my family of 15. It fulfilled all our expectations and we spent a week in it that I shall never forget which is why I call it the Memory House; there you will form memories to last a lifetime.

Great Large House Great Location

  • 5 of 5

On first review of the company website for this house and from viewing pictures on Trip Advisor, I did think the house looked good, but was pleasantly surprised by how my expectations of the house multipled 10 fold when I saw it in person upon check-in. It truly needs to be seen to be believed. It is a HUGE house but despite it's size it is so warm and welcoming and never felt too big.

A total of 11 bedrooms (9 of which have large en-suite bathrooms with a bath and shower, 1 of the en-suites even has a bath with jets!). The double bedrooms at the top of the house share a shower only bathroom.

With regard to parking at the house, there is ample space for multiple cars which was perfect for us as we had numerous cars.

I stayed there with my immediate family (a total of 18) for Christmas week in 2014. As I live in Australia and my siblings are located all over Europe, it made for a perfect location for us all to get together in one house and as a result we all had one of the best Christmases we can ever remember.

The rooms are five star hotel standard with the best linen and towels I've experienced from a rental home and the entire house was immaculately clean and very well maintained.

I really can't fault a thing. It had all the added extras too of broadband/wi-fi, Sky TV, constant hot water in the taps, heating, a large fridge and freezer with an additional fridge/freezer in the back kitchen, washer, dryer, dishwasher, you name it. They even had a box full of international plug adapters(very handy).

A lovely feature for winter was the use of the wood burning stove in the main living room. Plus on arrival we were thrilled to see the house had been decorated with a beautiful Christmas tree, Christmas garlands wrapped around the stair case, and over the fireplaces in both living rooms.

The second living room (AKA the games room with a pool table in it) had a great sound system speaker that can be plugged in to a phone or music device to play your favourite tunes.

Both sitting rooms had plenty of seating options for the large group that we were. Plus it was also lovely for people to feel they had their own space and could do their own thing as the house was large enough to accommodate this.

One last point on the location of the house. It is awesome! A short stroll into the beautiful town of Killarney, and a short walk from the breathtaking national park in Killarney.

Perfect large family home

  • 5 of 5

Where to begin...this is my first ever review on Trip Advisor. I would never normally consider writing a review(it always seems such an effort), but after my wonderful experience at this beautiful home I felt compelled to write something.

On first review of the company website for this house and from viewing pictures on Trip Advisor, I did think the house looked good, but was pleasantly surprised by how my expectations of the house multipled 10 fold when I saw it in person upon check-in. It truly needs to be seen to be believed.

It is a HUGE house but despite it's size it is so warm and welcoming and never felt too big. It was wonderful to have 2 x large living areas (separating the kids from the adults Winking face) and two large dining areas (the kitchen table held 14 I think from memory, with the dining room table accommodating 16).

A total of 11 bedrooms (9 of which have large en-suite bathrooms with a bath and shower, 1 of the en-suites even has a bath with jets!). The double bedrooms at the top of the house share a shower only bathroom.

The other wonderful bonus that I discovered is that there is a disability friendly bathroom that joins a ground floor bedroom off the kitchen; ideal for my mother who is partially disabled.

With regard to parking at the house, there is ample space for multiple cars which was perfect for us as we had numerous cars.

I stayed there with my immediate family (a total of 18) for Christmas week in 2014. As I live in Australia and my siblings are located all over Europe, it made for a perfect location for us all to get together in one house and as a result we all had one of the best Christmases we can ever remember. It was also a very special and memorable Christmas for our nieces and nephews as Santa came to visit in the big house!

The rooms are five star hotel standard with the best linen and towels I've experienced from a rental home and the entire house was immaculately clean and very well maintained.

I really can't fault a thing. It had all the added extras too of broadband/wi-fi, Sky TV, constant hot water in the taps, heating, a large fridge and freezer with an additional fridge/freezer in the back kitchen, washer, dryer, dishwasher, you name it.

Mr. and Mrs. Fitz

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been more pleased with our stay. The other reviews have said it all, but I wanted to mention the wheel chair accomdations. They were better than any hotel we have ever seen. Huge room with queen size bed, large bathroom with rails on the walls and roll in shower. We actually could not believe the attention to detail. The town was very easy to negogiate with the wheel chair also. Catriona had recommended Rose Travel to us for private tours with handicapped buses. Fabulous! We stayed 2 weeks and had 2 different groups come in.The cleaning girls Maggie and Mary were a delight. They gave us directions to a hotel at the start of the Ring of Kerry where the the views of the mountians and the lakes were breathtaking, as were the drinks! Our trip could not have been better. We even got to see the horse races . What could be better?
