We spent a few days at the Gormans b&b, a wonderful experience thanks to the kidness of Jim, who gave us a lot of information about the place and the attractions. Breakfast prepared with love and the tranquility in this place that will remain in our mind.

Nel corso del nostro viaggio in Irlanda una nota di merito va al Gorman’s B&B. La struttura è estremamente pulita, accogliente ed ordinata, la cucina è spaziosa e la colazione fresca e molto ricca. Si contraddistingue per l’accoglienza e l’ospitalità di Jim e consorte, simpaticissimi ed affettuosi, molto preparati anche per quanto riguarda consigli ed indicazioni sui punti d’interesse della zona. Sarà sicuramente uno dei ricordi più belli della vacanza. English: During our trip to Ireland, a note of credit goes to Gorman’s B&B.

We were well taken care of. It was our first trip to Ireland. Jim helped us to navigate to the places we needed to go. The breakfast was wonderful. Our daughter wasn’t feeling well and he went out of his way to make sure she had tea and toast. I would recommend staying here.

Our stay was exceptional. The accommodations were comfortable and sparkling clean. The breakfast was wonderful. The best part of our stay were our gracious hosts Jim and Moira. Jim was warm and welcoming and so helpful with directing us to places to dine and do. He suggested a hike up Torc Mountain which turned out to be our most favorite experience for our family on our entire trip. Thank you to Moira and Jim for a wonderful trip to Killarney!

Raised on Irish music and songs, Killarney holds a special image in my mind’s eye. The Gorman’s B&B fit right into my image. Jim and Moira are wonderful hosts, comfortable surrounding, suggestion of things to see and do, and suggestion of how to get the most out of our next adventure. Beautiful landscaping, an excellent nights sleep, pleasant conversation, and good breakfast are all part of our lasting memory.
