Great garden views
We spent two nights at this Bed and Breakfast. We had booked the family room that sleeps four but upon arrival we asked for an additional room to give everyone some more space since we had spent the previous eight nights together in family rooms. The hostess was very accommodating and gave us another room and a discount on the second room. It rained during our whole stay so we did not get to enjoy the outdoor area looking over the river but from what we could see it would be lovely to have breakfast outside and listen to the river. The hostess helped make reservation in town for our daughter’s birthday and even surprised her at breakfast with balloons and a little gift. She was willing to help book trips on the Ring of Kerry and had many suggestions for the surrounding areas. The rooms were nice, clean, plenty of towels, etc. Breakfast was good with plenty of choices. I would stay again if ever back in the Killarney area.
Great location, super warm welcome
This is the cutest b&b ever ! Everything is beautiful , the rooms , the view , the gardens. All the rooms have themes ours was titanic , we got a triple room which had plenty of space . The lady of the house was so nice , she even ironed my sons trousers that I couldn’t shift the creases out of ! The breakfast was delicious and lots of it , typical lovely country b&b with an extra bit of warmth . Great location to walk to the town , 1km, and close to ring of Kerry.
Porridge with Baileys–best breakfast ever!
Crystal Springs B&B is a warm, welcoming place to stay. Eileen, our hostess, was charming and so helpful. We stayed for three nights in March and had fantastic weather–strange in Ireland. Since we were three adult women, we had a very comfortable room with three beds with a wonderful view of the horses in the yard of the nearest house. We drove the Ring of Kerry and stopped many times for great pictures and views. Additionally, we shopped and ate in Killarney. We were delighted to find traditional music for two nights!!! One concern in Killarney– if you want to change American dollars into euros, don’t bring $100. bills; we went to four banks before we found one that would convert our money. The piece de resistance at Crystal Springs is the Eileen’s breakfast!!! Many items to choose on the buffet table, but the Porridge with Baileys was out of this world; the best porridge we had on our 12 day trip!!! We asked for small portions because we also ordered another hot dish, but Eileen has difficulty with “small” but we loved every bite of it! We were able to get WIFI (as opposed to another review). My only small criticism was that the nights were cold and our room never heated up well. I like to sleep in a cool room, but getting up in the morning was brrrrr. This was probably due to the great weather we had and the windows being open all day. We even sat in the sun in the beautiful back yard on the edge of the river. It was very peaceful and we loved watching the horses in the pasture across the river. Tranquility all over! If in Killarney, Crystal Springs is the place to stay!
An enjoyable stay in Killarney
A very warm welcome and a full load of advices to Killarney & surrounding areas. Rooms spacious and comfortable. Bathroom could have benefited from a better heating/insulation as they were cold.
Breakfast : fair number of choices in a very nice location overlooking the river – would definitely recommend
Lovely warm welcome !
Eileen our hostess was so welcoming. Crystal springs is clean and fresh and comfortable. Close to Killarney but you’d need a car which we had. She was so helpful with maps and advice on where we should go and what to see. Breakfast was lovely and the view from the breakfast room so pretty. Feel confident spending time here Eileen’s capable hands. Shame wifi wasn’t included as everywhere else we travelled it was. That was the only criticism.
WONDERFUL place to stay
We stayed here last September 2011 for 3 nights and it was a WONDERFUL experience. Eileen was the perfect hostess. She makes the best breakfast we had in Ireland. The Oatmeal with Baileys was to DIE for. I have been wanting some ever since. The place is extremely well kept, clean, very well furnished. We stayed on the bottom floor in a very nice room. Eileen was very helpful in deciding on the tours we would take and the bus stopped right in front of the B&B for the Ring of Kerry tour. She has lots of information on what to see in the area and all the good places to eat menus. We spent 8 days in Ireland and this was one of my most memorable experiences. I hope to go back and stay here in the near future.
