Darby O'Gill's Country House Hotel is situated right in the heart of Kerry, just five minutes from the beautiful town of Killarney - the tourism capital of Ireland. The hotel is close to all the spectacular visitor attractions of the area including Killarney National Park, Muckross House and Gardens, Torc Waterfall, Ross Castle, Ladies View, Kate Kearneys Cottage and the Gap of Dunloe.

The secure and ample parking, the garden area and the close proximity to outdoor activities - like golf, walking, cycling, fishing and equestrian - are just a few great reasons why Darby O'Gills is fortunate to be out of the town centre.

Therefore, uniquely, they offer their guests a quiet, relaxing stay with a splendid view to wake up to. Leave the hussle and bussle of the towns and cities, and let our team of friendly and efficient staff take care of you.

They pride themselves in being a 'family-friendly' hotel. Being run by a family, they understand the obvious needs and always do their best to meet those needs.
