“Best part of our trip!”
Reviewed 14 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We travelled to several places across and still talk about the great spacious Coach House at the Priory, the adorable dogs, the sweet hosts and most of all, the wood-burning fireplace.

“A hidden gem in Killarney”
Reviewed 16 September 2016 for a stay in June 2016
1
person found this review helpful

My wife and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary in June. We decided to take our two teenage boys to Ireland to celebrate (and visit one of my ancestral homelands). An acquaintance in Chicago, who is friends with the owners of The Priory (Tim and Bernadette), recommended as a place to stay in Killarney.

The Priory consists of a main house and a number of small cottages. We stayed in the Teach Mor cottage. The place oozes old world charm...a cobblestone walk way, arches and a small fountain all right outside your door. Our unit was very recently remodeled and was tastefully decorated. The washer/dryer located in the cottage is a major benefit for those who pack lightly or go out for day hikes in Killarney Nat'l. Park.

There is a small soccer pitch in front of the main home that our boys ended up using every evening when we got back from our day trips.

Tim and Bernadette were extremely helpful in setting our itinerary each day and we thoroughly enjoyed their company. The location is a short walk from the town center and is a great jumping off point for day trips (like the Ring of Kerry and Dingle Peninsula).

Oh, and I can't forget to mention the cow pasture that butts up to the unit (don't worry, you won't even notice them)...which has a nice view of the cathedral in town.

We heartily recommend The Priory to any first time or returning visitors to the Killarney region.

“Fantastic Location in Killarney”
Reviewed 20 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

If you plan on staying in Killarney for a week or so The Priory is an excellent option. Set well back off Muckross Road you'll enjoy the absolute quiet at night compared to the loud mayhem of town. Just a short 15-20 walk to town though which we did every night to listen to music. The Coach House has been marvellously restored by Tim. The main floor has a large living area with leather furniture and an excellent fireplace with plenty of wood and peat available to burn. The kitchen is well equipped. There is a 2 piece bathroom on the living area in addition to a laundry room. The two bedrooms upstairs are large with very comfortable beds and each with it's own full ensuite bathroom. (One with Jacuzzi tub.) Beds are very comfortable with cozy down duvets. It is Tim and Bernadette that will make your stay here though. Need a chef? Tim's got a guy. Need a driver for a few days. Tim's got a guy. How about a mountain guide? He's know one of those too. Tim was instrumental in helping us plan a fabulous week in Kerry. Plus he owns the micro brewery in town. How can you go wrong there? Couldn't recommend this place enough.

“Best rental in Ireland”
Reviewed 17 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

person found this review helpful

This was our third trip to Ireland, we've stayed in several very nice hotels and cottages, and The Loft at the Priory is our new favorite. We had a great four days there, and looking forward to our next visit. Bernadette and Tim are very accommodating, and the cottage was lovely and comfortable for our family. It was everything we expected and more. Clean, spacious and charming. Close to town, but far enough away to be peaceful and relaxing. The gardens are lovely, and they even arranged for the weather to be perfect!
Hi to Maizie and Oliver, who made the stay even more special. Who knew we'd have two sweet pups to greet us?!

“Truly amazing in every way!”
Reviewed 11 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

My sister in law and her family stayed in the Coach House (while we were in the Priory Cottage, the grandparents in the Priory Loft and all the grandkids in the main house!) and I can review (because they may not) their location. Like every spot around the Priory's courtyard - this one had old Irish charm with all the modern conveniences. The kitchen was fabulous...the bathrooms spacious and clean and fully modern...in cottage laundry was available...and the bedrooms were spotless and comfortable. The fireplace was a bonus that served us well - even in August!

Our family stumbled upon the O'Donohue's Priory property when we booked lodging for 4 last fall to scout for our planned August reunion...but what we found was the PERFECT location for our group of 25 this summer. There are several "cottages" around a picturesque courtyard all located on a private property. Each cottage affords ample privacy for independent travelers...but in our case...it provided the IDEAL location for all of us to be together. This was the trip of a lifetime for our family and we would HIGHLY recommend the Priory to groups of any size. Please give the O'Donohue's our best when you get there!
