The Patpong Inn is across from the beach, and steps away from Bangla Road. The staff is friendly, and the rooms are clean and comfortable. About a night includes breakfast for 2 people.

The room itself was decent. A little smaller than what we are usually used to, but a decent place to stay. There was a Queen-sized bed, coffee table, loveseat, two bedside tables, dresser with two drawers, television, and a desk and chair. Plus, there was an air conditioner / heater that was operated by placing your key into the slot on the wall. Once you took your key out, all the electricity ceased working. It’s a good way to save energy, but a lousy way to keep the room comfortable.

While you’re there at Tactile you can stop and see the “Textiles Traditions from Developing Countries” World Threads Exhibition (the exhibit runs from April 1st to May 2nd). Embrace fellow fiber artisans of the world and experience inspiring textile traditions.

The Ross Castle – This is the Great castle that a Killarney visitor should not miss. The castle is stunningly viewable at the shores of Lough Lien. The castle was said to be one of the highlights in Killarney. There is no entrance fee with the Ireland Heritage pass presented. This is an artifact from the 15th century and fantastically beautiful.
