"Oaklawn B & B was a lovely place to stay. The grounds around the B & B are beautiful. Short drive to town and we never had any trouble finding a parking space. The rooms were clean, cheery, sky lights and TV. Biggest bathroom of all the B&Bs with a bathtub. Ask Rosemary to make porridge in the morning for you. She has a special way of doing it and it is great. Thanks Rosemary for a great stay!"

"My wife and I stayed with the O'Connells at Oaklawn for three days. We absolutely loved the house and the hosts. My brother and I stayed there in 2004 and it was every bit as good as the first time. I know that my wife and I will get back to Killarney in the near future and we will definitely stay at Oaklawn. It is so close to everything and is very reasonable."

"We stayed at Oaklawn House B&B in March and had a wonderful time ... The rooms were beautiful, ours was toward the back of the house, everything in wood. The beds were great. The breakfast was wonderful. There were sitting areas all around the house, and well maintained gardens. Oaklawn is very close to town, all of a five minute walk to some great food and entertainment! We stayed in several B&B's on our two week trip, and Oaklawn House was definitely toward the top of the list. We would definitely stay there again!"
