The Castlerosse Hotel is nestled in the hills to the north of the Killarney Lakes region just outside the city of Killarney. Wonderful, quiet, idyllic comfort. Hotel was clean and had two golf courses wrapped around it so on the second morning my wife and I were there a deer was grazing 20 feet from our bedroom window, no kidding.... More

We stayed with our three young children and we also had two adjoining lodges rented by other family members and we couldn't have had a better holiday.

Stayed here in July as part of a CIE tour (CIE normally would have used the International Hotel for this tour) - a beautiful location but management seems to think they can rest on the laurels of the location and forget about the basics of hotel hospitality. Rooms can be a long walk from the lobby as many reviews have... More

we stayed in one of the cottages which were very spacious but basic and badly in need of a facelift. we had dinner in the hotel once and found this to be expensive for what turned out to be a very ordinary meal despite reading as a feast on the menu!
