24 High Street,
Foley's was the perfect spot for a family weekend away. We were a family of 10 inc. 2 children.
We had a street facing room which was surprisingly quiet. I woke to the sound of a small group of revellers chatting, and later to the sound of the refuse truck very efficient - I would have expected more noise being right above the main street.
It was perfectly placed in the centre of town - half of our party was leaving early Saturday to do the Skellig Michael trip so very worth doing, but as that is very weather dependent and the other half of our party was not doing it - we needed a location that would entertain us in the event we couldn't go.
We also wanted to put the cars away for the weekend. Parking was very convenient, and the guesthouse itself was very easy to find.
A real treat on the night before the Skellig trip was to find a beautiful photography gallery a few doors down, with a huge picture of Skellig Michael that scared the bejasus out of us.
We returned to this shop a few more times after the trip was done.
Foley's is one of two restaurants in Killarney that is very highly rated. I didn't know this when I booked it. I ordered a birthday cake and the set menu for that Saturday night.
This meal was fantastic. Every part of it was super. One in our party has very high standards when it comes to food, and even they were delighted with this. Thank God.
Carol - the owner came and had a lovely chat with us. We all felt that we wanted her to sit and just be one of our party for the evening, a really lovely lady and so interesting. She obviously has a love for her business, and is very good at what she does.
We will be back again. That is a given. I wouldn't bother trying to book with any other for any forthcoming trip to killarney.
