My wife and I stayed at this hotel for six nights (July 1 - July 7) and had a great stay. This hotel is great place for families, couples or just anybody. The walk to the edge of the town (St. Mary's Cathedral) is about a 20 minute walk through a paved path through the beautiful Killarney National Park and... More

I recently dined twice in this hotel and the food is amazing. The surroundings are beautiful with a nice view of Killarney's lake and mountains. I also played on the golf course and finished with a quick swim in the pool. All in all it was a very pleasant experience and very reasonably priced. Although I haven't stayed in the... More

We spent two lovely weeks in the Castlerosse in one of the Woodland Cottages. The staff were very friendly and helpful, particularly Claire, Danielle, Aine and all the Castle Rangers crew in the kiddies club. The cottage was clean, spacious and comfortable and was ideal for us (3 children ranging from 4-8). The walkway around the park was ideal for... More

As an annual visitor to Kerry this is certainly a good hotel for a family. The kiddies club can give a welcome breather for parents, there's a play park and tennis court and the location whereby one can walk directly into the national park and enjoy a lovely stroll into the town or roundabout amidst some of the finest scenery...

Stayed here for two nights in the beautiful town of Killarney. The location was hopeless - miles from the city centre. While it was possible to walk to the city centre, it involved a good 15-20 minutes hike through a wood near the hotel! The rooms were awfully dated. Using the hotel's email service was quite expensive. Staff not very... More

Dear Cynthia, I was disappointed to read that our location bordering and overlooking the magnificent Killarney National Park, Lough Leane, Tommie’s and Purple Mountain was “hopeless”. As are only located 3 kilometres from Killarney town centre the 20 minute walk through the National Park on a fantastic evenly surfaced tarmac should be enjoyable and relaxing. The WiFi which is provided... More

We stayed three nights here. The best part of our stay was the guest reception attendants. Especially the girl who helped my husband with a pizza delivery to the hotel on our last night, who also happened to assist us with our check out tje next morning.
