Muddy Paws Luxury Dog Boarding

A 'home from home' holiday experience for your dog. Your companion will be looked after to the highest standard and be treated like family in our home.  

Our Home

Our beautiful home is nestled in the heart of the gorgeous Kerry countryside, yet conveniently situated 10km from Killarney town. We are a family run luxury home boarding business offering “home from home” bespoke holidays for all types of dogs, living as one of our family. If your dog is allowed on your sofa at home, then they are allowed up on our sofa too. 


We strive to offer the best holiday experience for your dog. Since we are based in the country, we have many local countryside walks on our doorstep for your dog to exercise in. All dog's stay in our home and never in a kennel. Our premises is alarmed and in addition to this, we have electric gates to ensure no one unauthorised can access the property.

To make sure our guests get all the attention they deserve, we only take in a small number of guests at a time to ensure no overcrowding. We will update you daily with photos of your pet on their adventures, or if you prefer, you can receive all photos on collection of your pet. 

Why Choose Us?

At Muddy Paws we ensure that your dog is not confined in a lonely kennel, looking at four walls all day. Although there are many reputable kennels, not all dog's cope well or suit a kennel environment. We certainly believe your best friend deserves more than being kept in kennels whilst you are away! 

We have first hand experience of family members not going away on holidays or ever leaving their pet, simply because they do not trust any boarding establishments. I myself, have experienced first hand how difficult it is to find good, safe and reliable pet care. This is what brought us to open Muddy Paws Luxury Boarding...  

Our Setting


We have 3 key areas:

  1. A playground

  2. A sensory garden

  3. An indoor playroom.

Our dog playground is secured with 6 ft fencing, full of purpose made climbing obstacles for them to play & have fun on. 


Our indoor playroom is a bright and warm place for your fur babies to relax, play & let 'dogs be dogs' in. They also have free run of the house. 

Our sensory garden is made up of numerous different smells, textures, activities and sounds to engage all of your dog senses. It will encourage our guests to become more secure in their surroundings, help to reduce any stress/anxiety & provide additional stimulation and enrichment during their time with us. All plants are non toxic to dogs and are specifically chosen for their beneficial effects on dogs.

Our Policies

You will need to supply the necessary dog food for the duration of the guests stay. This is to ensure that they do not get upset stomachs & keep to their feeding routine. We supply bowls, towels & beds. However, feel free to bring your own dogs bed & crate (if used) if you feel this will settle your dog more.
