We stayed at the Abbey Lodge for 14 days and absolutely loved every minute of it. The owner, John, and his entire staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating in every way we could have asked. They let us use their landline to contact various business in our area and were always readily available to answer questions we had. They offered us fresh towels and other essentials as well as room tidying every day and brought up ice and such extras when we asked.
The breakfasts in the morning were at a perfect time for a young couple on vacation; not too early and not too late 8-9:30! The food was also delicious and something to look forward to every morning, with a great variety at the breakfast bar as well as 5 different items to choose from to have cooked-to-order.
Our room was clean upon arrival and a decent size for two, with a modern bathroom that I absolutely loved. We had our sheets changed whenever they cleaned, which could have been every day had we requested it.
John was a pleasure to do business with, as he was flexible with a booking issue that we had, incredibly reasonable with his prices, and always checking in to make sure we were enjoying our stay. We received a key to the house which is customary I believe, as well as our room so that we could come an go as we pleased; also a great thing for a young couple.
In addition to the wonderful service at the Abbey Lodge, the location could not have been better. We were just far enough outside the heart of Killarney that the number of people weren't totally overwhelming when one stepped outside, but also a mere five minute walk straight into the heart of Killarney that was very convenient. Killarney National Park, a beautiful and serene escape, was nearly at our doorstep and even closer than the city. The ability to get lost in either the bustle of the city or the peacefulness of the Park was unparalleled and couldn't have been any better. There is also a liquor store and convenience store on the same block and across the street, which was very convenient for us.
This was our first time in Ireland and though we plan to see the rest of Ireland, we fully intend to spend as much time at the Abbey Lodge as we can in the coming getaways. With a vey ling-winded explanation, we absolutely recommend one stays at the Abbey Lodge without any further consideration.
