Reviews From Guests

Below are the latest reviews we have received from our guests.

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.

This place was perfect! We booked last minute and unintentionally arrived late. We felt really bad about this, but were greeted with a smile and immediately welcomed. The room was so comfortable and the breakfast was delicious and plentiful! I wish we could have stayed longer. I highly suggest staying here! If we make it back to Killarney, we're definitely staying at Crystal Springs.

Lovely rooms, brilliant breakfasts (try the Baileys porridge) and the most welcoming and friendly host. You won't be disappointed. Better than most 4 and 5 star hotels. Killarney is lovely and Crystal Springs is a tremendous place to stay. https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowUserReviews-g186612-d653545-r491902528-Crystal_Springs_Bed_and_Breakfast-Killarney_County_Kerry.html#

The woman who runs the place is a joy-full of energy and enthusiasm and always has a cheery smile on her face. She recommended the bike shop just down the road for our bike rentals and it worked out great. Room was very nice. Breakfast was delicious You can walk to town in 20 minutes or so. The stay was fabulous.

Very nice accommodations with comply bed. Great breakfast and staff. Nice view by the river and surroundings. Only complaints was that you have to drive to town/restaurants, the wifi was weak and It was difficult to control the water temperature in the shower. Otherwise this was a nice Guesthouse.

Outstanding in every respect. Eileen is a great host. Accommodations were first class. Food in the morning was excellent and beautifully prepared and presented. The room was exquisite and the bathroom modern and functional. We've stayed in a lo of upmarket hotels and would be hard pressed to remember a bedroom and bathroom as luxurious as the one we had at Crystal Springs. We were able to take a peek into some of the other rooms as they were open during cleaning and each one looked superb. On that note, it'd been a while since I'd stayed in any kind of B&B but this is more like a top-notch hotel with daily maid service, chocolates on the pillow and all the accommodations you could wish for. Breakfasts were beautifully prepared and presented. Eggs were cooked to refection every time and the buffet choices are overwhelming. A similar breakfast at other hotels would easily cost 30 Euro each. The location is great. Just far enough away from the main drag to be quiet. The fact that the River Flesk runs right alongside the lawn at the back is a bonus. So peaceful and quiet. We were close enough to be in town in a few minutes and had easy access to all the main roads for our day trips. We'll will definitely stay again next time we're in Ireland.

Everything was simply outstanding. Kind, gracious owner, clean and comfortable room, excellent food, great hospitality. We could not have been happier with our stay, and regret that we didn't have more time at Crystal Springs. Would not hesitate to stay here again, and would recommend Crystal Springs to anyone staying in this area.
