We had a wonderful time staying in Killarney and this hotel was the icing on the cake. Good location, very friendly helpful staff, big bedroom with complimentary bottles of water, large bathroom with separate shower cubicle and bath. The hotel was spotlessly clean too. Would 100% recommend staying here and would love to return ourselves in the future.

Stayed here for a weekend in February, one of the friendliest hotels I've stayed in! It was my girlfriends birthday and they left chocolate, wine and a card in the room for her, it made her weekend! Food in the bar was very good especially the venison pie!

On arrival we were greeted by a woman on the front desk (I'm pretty sure her name was Karen) and she was fantastic .. professional, friendly and informative. We were made to feel welcome straight away. The facilities are great and we...

I have stayed in this hotel several times in the last number of years and last visit in 2015 thought it was a little tired.

We recently purchased a gift voucher for my parents to stay in this hotel as a 70th birthday present. They absolutely loved it. The staff in the hotel were great and made them feel really special and they loved the special touch of chocolates in their room. They thought the hotel itself was amazing and a fantastic location. Well done...
