Reviewed yesterday NEWvia mobile

Four of us had a delicious lunch in The Royal during the week. The menu is excellent, and the hotel is to be complemented for sourcing food locally in County Kerry - lamb and beef from local farmers and seafood from named sources. The presentation was really excellent and the service was very good. We ate in the dining room,...

The room was clean, nice sized. The breakfast was prepared well. The best part is the hospitality of the staff, from checking in to late night @ the bar, just a great experience overall and would definitely consider staying here again

Beautiful hotel with charm and character, which is renowned for its fine food, cooked to order. Attention to detail is outstanding, ice bucket delivered to room daily, relaxing sleep/pillow spray, bath robe and slippers provided. Staff warm and welcoming with charisma, and a real open fire to welcome guests.

The royal is a really lovely hotel in the centre of Killarney. The food in the bar is delicious and it's the perfect place to meet friends for a catch up. My favourite spot is sitting beside the fire drinking a baileys coffee. Mike in the royal makes the best baileys coffees in Ireland and is so helpful and always...

This was our third year in a row booking our work Christmas party. Service is always top notch, beautiful food and exceptional accommodation. Special mention to Mike who always looks after us so well when we visit. See you all again in December 2017!

WHAT WORKED: central location; thoughtful staff; comfortable and well-appointed bathrooms; good quality breakfast. WHAT DIDN'T WORK: the rooms are cramped, threadbare and dark; the beds are small and uncomfortable; you can clearly hear all activity in the adjoining rooms and hall; the restaurant service is a bit slow.

The Killarney Royal Hotel is sumptuous. There was a welcoming peat fire when you walked in. The rooms are luxuriant with a well appointed bathroom. The bed was very comfortable, the thermostat is remote controlled so you can put it by your bedside, the ice bucket was filled daily and there was a putter in the room to practice your...

When one of the touring party suggests abandoning the rest of the itinerary and permanently moving into the accommodation you know you're onto a winner! What a delightful experience! The comfort and warmth of the surrounds are more than matched by the comfort and warmth of the people. Thank you so very much to Billy, Mike and Maura who made...

Our 2 night stay at the Killarney Royal was one of the best I've ever had. The service was really remarkable, Noula was so accommodating. Just steps away from the train station, we arrived well before check-in and Noula had our bags taken care of and mapped out a wonderful walk for us to take to familiarize ourselves with the...
