We had a delicious dinner that was included with our room for the night. The menu is a bit limited, but I had the steak which was delicious. Service was wonderful and accommodating.

I recently visited this restaurant for a fathers day treat and was left completely underwhelmed and disappointed. The bad experience began before I even entered the restaurant when at reception I was asked if we had a booking to which I replied we hadn't and that there were three of us. The rude woman at the reception looked us up... More

After spending the day in Killarney, this was the perfect way to end our day. I bought a voucher for my partners birthday and she had the Duck Spring Rolls to start, Steak for main, and a beautifully decorated chocolate fondant for dessert for her birthday, while I had the Seafood Chowder to start, Duck Legs for mains, and Strawberry...

We organised my father's 70th birthday at the Royal whilst on holiday. The staff couldn't do enough for us and although some of us were late arriving nothing was a problem. They provided an excellent menu with plenty choice and it was amazing. We had a brilliant night and would throughly recommend and would like to thank the staff at... More

When we booked for Sunday lunch 2 weeks ago, we specifically mentioned we were 6 adults and 3 children. On arrival, a very unpleasant older waitress - firstly ignored us, despite just standing around. When she came over she said they were going to put us at 2 round tables across the room from each other. We said we were... More

We went to The Candle Room for dinner during our stay in Killarney. As the restaurant was not full, we were seated immediately. We ordered a couple of items from the fixed menu and the ala-carte menu. The items were potato and leek soup, beef fillet with rice, Irish lamb shank and ice-cream. The potato and leek soup was creamy... More

We had two wonderful meals in this intimate restaurant. The staff were friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The lighting and mood is conducive to a romantic evening. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves

The atmosphere in the Candle Room is of quiet elegance with soft classical music in the background. It is special without being stuffy or overbearing because the staff is so well trained and friendly. When they place or remove plates, there is nary a sound and their attentiveness to your water and cutlery needs is exemplary. This is about to... More

A work colleague recommended we eat here during our stay in Killarney. Delighted that I took his advice. The food was divine, the service was excellent, the staff were very friendly and efficient. There were 7 in our group and not one person had anything negative to say about the whole meal. There was a great selection on the menu.
