It was nice and the people were great, especially the bartender! It was a little dated but in a very quaint way. It was nicely located to everything we needed. Couldn't ask for better value for the price. Would definitely recommend this place.

My husband and I stayed at this charming little hotel for 2 nights while driving the Ring of Kerry during a trip through Ireland in late May. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable with old world charm. The location of the hotel is central and parking is close by. But what really makes this hotel is quality of service... More

This center of town hotel is more than it seems. Everything you ever heard about the friendliness and warmth of the Irish people is inside. At breakfast I asked Betty (a charming woman who won't tell exactly how many years she worked there) for some fruit that didn't have kiwi. She brought me a fruit bowl that could serve four!... More

The Staff was very nice and breakfast was above average. The room left a lot to be desired. To start, they still use conventional keys which is okay by they put the key on am obnoxiously large key ring that is a pain in the butt, We were on the first floor above the bar/ pub and the noise was...

Among the hustle and bustle of the busy city of Killarney, sits a lovely little hotel. The hotel, itself is like taking a trip into history, a glimpse of what Ireland may have been in the early 1920's. The rooms are spacious and cozy, the bathrooms feature the deep tubs that we have come to love in European travel, and... More

What a fantastic little place. In the middle of Killarney town. The reception staff very friendly and very helpful. The room quaint, cosy, quiet, warm with a very comfortable bed. The bathroom very good. Breakfast was delicious (scrambled eggs just how I like them) and plenty of it, Betty was so efficient with a lovely smiling face and fun attitude.... More

If you are looking for a real Irish hotel experience you must consider the Arbutus Hotel. It's a wonderful older hotel full of beautiful antiques. It's very clean and the bathrooms are newly updated. The rooms are large and the Irish breakfast was one of the best. There is a quaint bar in the hotel, but right next door is... More

This is a beautiful hotel with lots of old world charm! Staff were really lovely and couldn't do enough to help you. Great location right in the middle of town and a great location to do sight seeing from. Highly recommended!

We stayed here for two nights at the long weekend. The location is fantastic. The room was lovely. The staff were the nicest I have ever come across. They were so friendly and helpful and genuinely welcoming. I mislaid a jacket and they went out of their way to locate it for me. The breakfast was delicious and a young... More
