Sika Lodge B & B
Ranked #12 of 143 Killarney B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 August 2016

Located in Ballydowney along the N72 is a quaint five room B&B, a short 3-5 minute drive to the center of Killarney. It is exceptionally well furnished with a comfortable sitting room which you'll want to spend hours cuddled up with a book, exceptionally clean & functional rooms, and a lovely hostess/proprietor (Serena) who takes great pride in ensuring her guests are well taken care of. The morning breakfast is made to order consisting of a full Irish Breakfast, eggs, sausages, puddings, Irish Bacon, or options such as Salmon on a bagel with cream cheese, or a double meat option, continental, porridge, whatever you'd like. Serena is an accomplished Chef who lovingly prepares the breakfasts each morning. In addition she is exceptionally knowledgeable on the local sights, restaurants, hidden gems & made reservations at two wonderful restaurants for the evening. The Sika Lodge is a B&B that you'll want to come back to time & time again. A final note, Serena could charge twice of what she is asking and the property would continue to be fully booked each evening. Book early!

Room Tip: Recommend rooms on the back side away from the N72. Book early, the lodge was fully booked each of...

We had a lovely stay at Serena's. Everything is done for you to have a nice moment in Killarney. Very warm welcome, lots of good advices on Killarney and the Ring of Kerry. The place is beautiful, the rooms are clean and comfortable, the breakfast is excellent... In a word we totally recommend it!

We felt very welcome at this family run b&b. Serena our hostess could not have been more helpful and friendly. We had a well decorated,very clean and comfortable room. The breakfast was great and we were given good advice on local services and our planned activities. The only downside was some traffic noise which I understand is being addressed soon.

Gorgeous rooms and wonderful breakfast - they were even able to accommodate my gluten intolerance. Sika Lodge is right on the edge of the National Park; however, it is a good 15+ minute walk to the centre of Killarney and any restaurants. Even so, I would definitely stay here again!

The hostess of Sika Lodge was so lovely and knowledgeable about things to do in the surrounding town of Killarney. And she also provided us with a lovely pre-arrival treat. The room was very clean, a tad small, but enough room for two people to stay the night comfortably. The water pressure of the shower was great too. Breakfast was delicious but if you have food allergies or dietary restrictions it's best to bring your own bread.
