A great option just a few blocks from the center of Killarney, Larkinley Lodge is a stylish, modern B&B in a beautifully converted townhouse. Toni and Danny Sheehan are gregarious hosts, with an eye for detail. Guest rooms are small, but just the right mix of traditional and modern, with minimal clutter and muted color schemes. Triple rooms only cost a little more than doubles. Don’t miss the home-baked scones at breakfast. The location is only about a 10-minute walk into central Killarney, not far from great pubs and restaurants, yet in a quiet neighborhood where you can escape the evening street noise—sometimes a problem in this lively town. Note: Larkinley Lodge has a 2-night minimum stay, year-round.
