  • Introduction


    Enjoy A Wee Bit O'Ireland in the Shenandoah Valley!
    We wish our guests a Happy and Safe Holiday Season.

    Your hosts, Tom and Kathy Conkey, invite you visit Killahevlin B&B Inn to experience Irish-style warmth and charm in their historic Front Royal, Virginia hilltop Edwardian Mansion . Our Bed & Breakfast offers an "Emerald Isle" for travelers to the Shenandoah Valley reminiscent of turn of the century hospitality.

    Prepare to be pampered by caring innkeepers who have taken every detail into account to make your stay as relaxing, comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Curl up with a good book in a quiet spot, or relax and mingle with fellow guests in the private Irish Pub. Enjoy one of our sumptuous full breakfasts, you won't need lunch!

    This Shenandoah Valley Virginia Inn and its Tower House have been professionally restored and exquisitely designed - complete with interesting antiques, private bathrooms (most with whirlpool tubs ... ALL en suite).

    The Irish influence can be spotted throughout the guest rooms and the entire house with stained glass transom windows, reproduction wallpaper from 19th century Ireland and, of course, the private Irish Pub for guests offering complimentary Irish draft beer on tap, wine, soft drinks and snacks.

    The mansion, listed on the National Historic Register, is situated so that from the rooms, veranda, porches, gazebos and grounds there are wonderful outlooks to the property's magnificent tree line with the Blue Ridge Mountains and the George Washington National Forest as a distant backdrop.

    Whether you are traveling to Front Royal, Virginia for pleasure or business, celebrating a special occasion, on vacation or just passing through, escape to Killahevlin where "Southern Hospitality meets Irish Charm."

    Please note: If you use one of the internet mapping services (such as Map Quest, Google, or similar products) or GPS, you will find us more easily if you "fool" the system and plug in our address as 1585 North Royal Avenue. The property originally ran down to 14th street and our address was assigned when the estate was intact. With progress comes change and the property was subdivided some time ago. The original address was never changed and we now suffer because we aren't where the mapping services think we should be.
