Trustworthy pet care

We are a unique dog boarding business offering “home from home” bespoke holidays for all types of dogs, living as one of our family. If your dog is allowed up on your sofa at home, then they are allowed up on our sofa too! All dog's stay in our home and never in a kennel.

We appreciate & understand how difficult  it can be to leave your furry friend in the care of others. That is why we always strive to offer the best holiday experience for your dog & will always spoil them, whether that be with cuddles or home baked cookies. You can enjoy your time away with complete reassurance, knowing we will make your dogs stay in our home one full of love, fun & care.

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 once daily with photos of your pet on their adventures to see for yourself what fun they are having!

Don't just take our word for it. Check out what others have said!

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. If you believe your dog is better suited to a home environment where we focus on quality not quantity, then we are the perfect choice for you!

our home

Our home is nestled in the heart of the gorgeous Kerry countryside safely away from any fast moving roads, conveniently located 12km from Killarney town. We have many local country walks on our doorstep for your dog to enjoy. Our premises is alarmed accompanied with electric gates to ensure no one unauthorised can access the property.

What makes us so different?



Dogs must be up to date with all vaccines including the Bordetella (Canine Cough) vaccination, & must be carried out at least 14 days prior to stay . An up to date veterinary certificate of vaccination will be required for inspection on the date of arrival. 





All guests must be socialized, non-aggressive, and not food or toy protective. All dogs must be house trained. All dogs must not have any history of harming or threatening behavior towards any person or animal. 


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 & bedding.

We are no ordinary pet sitters... We have our very own purpose built dog playground for our guests! In fact, we have had dogs from all over the country to come stay with us! Our home is very often referred to as a 'Dog's Disneyland'.

A second home for your dog. Your companion will be looked after to the highest standard and be treated like family always.
