Carriglea House is a 150-year old Victorian house set on thirty acres of farmland on the outskirts of Killarney. It is the oldest bed and breakfast in the town, being open to the public since 1932. It has been in the Beazley family for four generations.
This is a Fáilte Ireland approved accommodation. The house has eight ensuite bedrooms. Four of the rooms have showers while the remaining four have baths. In addition there is a television and tea and coffee making facilities in each of the rooms. There are panoramic views from the house looking across Lough Leane to Purple Mountain, Torc Mountain and the Mangerton range. There are two acres of garden available for guests to stroll and relax in.
Carriglea provides a good starting point for walkers on the Kerry Way as it picks up the trail at the point where it leaves the main road and enters Killarney National Park. It also has the advantage of being the first house reached upon returning to Killarney. Luggage transfers to the next accommodation on the trail can be arranged.
Although the bed and breakfast may be 3km outside of the town, there are still shops close by to purchase supplies for the Kerry Way. There are also numerous hotels in the vicinity serving evening meals and drinks.
