The houses are spacious, have everything needed for a family stay but are very old fashioned. Although clean inside the windows were dirty &... More

I loved everything about this hotel: location, views, service, room comfort. It was an excellent stay . I also enjoyed the history room, which explained the history of this beautiful hotel. Kilarney is a most beautiful area. If you stay here, get out and enjoy the country.

We love the holiday homes, they're so spacious, beautiful location, amazing to see Santa's reindeer crossing the golf course every morning & evening. Magical. My 3 year old will give Rory mcelroy a run for his money.

There's good and bad... Start with the good. The hotel is clean and good value. In general the staff were friendly and helpful however they lack the little touches that make great service. The food was good. I've read reviews on here saying it's excellent but I suppose it's down to taste. The steak is very good. Kids menu pizza... More

Accommodation costs are very reasonable and we were very impressed by the full breakfast which was only 6 euro per head. The staff were very professional and I would like to mention Janice, in particular, who is very proficient at multi tasking. Nothing... More
