We will never forget our wonderful visit to this place. The owner initially seemed quiet and un-engaging but soon we realised he was just shy and honestly couldn't do enough for us. He works so hard and seems do everything around the place! I honestly got tired watching him. When we went out one evening he even stayed up late... More

Just a 5 minute drive from the busy centre of Killarney, Rockfield is a peaceful and very relaxing B&B. Our room was well-equipped, including a great shower. The buffet breakfast is a pleasant change - so many quality options, including for vegetarians. The host is unintrusive, generous and very helpful. Very pleasant 3 night stay.

The owner was very pleasant & helpful. The room was clean and very comfortable for our family of 4. It's located a little outside the center of Killarney (GPS kept taking us to a different location, so double check your address) - but it was great to get away from all the tourist/bars/noise. It would be problematic if you don't... More

The B&B is very close to the city center. We were in the studio where it has everything we needed. The man who own the place is like Hagrid, tall and sweet as candy. He took me to the kitchen to show me how he made his fluffy pancacke. Thanks to him. A good memory that I can bring back... More

This B&B was convenient to Killarney and I think a bit overpriced because of that reason. Rooms were spacious and pleasant. Breakfast was a more of a breakfast bar than cooked breakfast, but there were plenty of choices to include more European fare. Biggest complaint is WIFI does not work at all which is big when you have two teenagers.

The host (Peter) and staff made us feel at home, with a display of friendliness that we began to expect as a matter of course from the Irish folk. At the same time, the service was as efficient as in a business hotel. A five minute drive from the town center, it is quite conveniently located. Just away from the... More

Rockfield house has large, clean, and bright rooms, with big, fluffy comforters and hot showers. We had 2 large rooms for our family of 5. Our 3 boys were in the en suite with double bed, double futon, and twin bed along with a small kitchenette. We didn't realize this was en suite (no breakfast included) but Peter took pity... More

A great room with space, it's own small kitchen, and a fire! It was very clean and welcoming. An excellent breakfast with more options than we could manage. Friendly hosts who provided quick, efficient service. Would stay again in a heartbeat.
