Comment: beautifully decorated!
Impossible to fault. The food, service, decor, furnishings all second to none. Extremely helpful and friendly staff. Liked it so much we stayed an extra night. Will definately return!
The exterior of the building is unassuming and not particularly impressive, but inside you find a lovely sitting room, beautiful art on all the walls, wonderfully appointed bedrooms, and the best breakfast in town. Warm, friendly owners too. We loved it.
Delightful in all respects
My wife and I based our decision to stay here on what other people had written in these reviews. I'm pleased to say we were'nt disappointed. I work for an airline and travel abroad several times a month staying in top quality hotels. In terms of value for money and outstanding service I have stayed in few better. The rooms were spotlessly clean, breakfast was delicious and nothing was too much trouble for the owners. I can thoroughly recommend it.
Charming family-run hotel
I chose to stay at this hotel, having read the reviews on this site. I booked the room using their easy to use website reservation system. This is, without doubt, the best privately-run small hotel I have ever stayed in. It has a very inviting family home atmosphere. The building is decorated with a wide range of antiques and family heirlooms. Our room was very spacious, with excellent facilities and a large, disabled-person-accessible bathroom. The staff were very friendly, polite and helpful. The hotel is located in a peaceful inner suburb. It would only take the average person around 15 - 20 minutes to walk into the town centre. Taxis are cheap and readily available.
Great Place, Nice People
Add our names to the list of folks who love this place. My wife and I stayed several nights in May 2004 and found Earls Court to be exceptional. Beautiful antiques (a museum quality piece of Killarney furniture is in the lounge), spotless and beautifully furnished rooms. Emer and all of the staff are kind and helpful. The breakfast is wonderful!
We were impressed from the first moment we arrived. We traveled via Kinsale and Blarney and arrived around 2 PM without having had lunch. We asked the owner for recommendations for a quick lunch spot and she offered to make us sandwiches within 10 minutes (only cost 4 Euro per sandwich). Also had wonderful tea and sweet breads. ELegant accomodations in a quiet area within a 10-15 minute walk to center of town, outstanding breakfast, best beds, Huge bathroom, warm and caring owners that were MOST helpful with any needs. We would definitely recommend this guesthouse and would stay there again and again.
I stayed at Earls Court last August (2002) and it was absolutely wonderful. The owner is very gracious and helpful. He welcomed us with tea and a snack when we arrived. The room was lovely, spotless, with beautiful furniture and a fabulous view of the mountains. The hotel is full of antiques. It's a small hotel with a B&B feel. The breakfast is traditionally Irish and delicious. Highly recommended.
Gracious & Convenient
Spent a night at Earls Court in May2003. It is immaculate, convenient to all shopping and restaurants (walking distance) and run by very lovely people. Don't miss the apple surprise pancakes. We will surely return!
Excellent B & B
Beautiful, small ( 11 rooms) quiet B & B just a few minutes walk from town center. Wonderful hospitality. Great Irish breakfast....all at reasonable price. Highly recommend.

... boys are all excited that they will finally meet, albiet through facetime, their new cousin.
We ride out, the weather is beautiful! Sun shining brightly, white fluffy clouds.You can hear the breeze rustling through the trees.The boys look perfectly content on their ponies. We cross the road and amble languidly into the park. As we walk through the gate we are greeted with tall green mountains scattered with trees, pristine lakes and miles ...
... after which we did dinner at The Beaufort which is a pub and restaurant close to Granma's. The food was excellent and the service was OK although it was a bit hectic as it was the "Ring of Kerry" that day, which is a cycle ride of 120+ miles which attracted 9500 cyclists this ...
... owner, Sean Murphy. He even brought us into the bar to take more pictures with him. Crazy coincidence that the man we asked to take our picture turned out to be the owner of pub! Fun fact: There are no predators in Ireland so the farm animals are free to roam the hills and fields. Discovery of the day.....apparently one person can do all jobs at the Scott's Hotel. The same person was our bartender, room maintenance man and house ...
... catch the last bus into Killarney and would have to take a cab back. Since we only wanted to pay for the cab once, we decide to grab some food and a drink at the pub before the grocery store closed. Well we were in Murphy's Pub since our bus driver recommended going there. When we walk in it's no wonder John recommended it, it's all old people. We decide to grab a drink anyways because we're not staying out. This older gentleman starts talking to us who is a pig farmer and grew ...
Today's our day for driving the Ring of Kerry. We had hoped that today would bring clear weather to allow us to take in what we had been told would be the magnificent vistas. Unfortunately the day was overcast and had drizzling rain. Not the most motivating of environments to start the day. It was not our usual start for the day as we didn't have to pack our bags, just have breakfast and then get ready to go sightseeing. With no bags Chris also ...
