First impression on entering building was of cobwebs and dust in the hallway. Bedroom was no better - old fashioned, dirty, black mold in bathroom and smelt like student accommodation circa early 1990's! It was cheap and I guess you get what you pay for.....but surely keeping place clean isn't a big ask?

We booked "on the fly" as we entered town, based on the photos and (some) reviews of this hotel. We wanted a quiet location, decent W-Fi and parking. On arrival we realized to our horror it was located on a main road. We were shown the room (at the back as we'd asked for a quiet room) and it was... More

Maybe it was because we had just come from an amazing place in Kinsale, but when we arrived at Rivermere we were immediately disappointed. The family room we stayed in was dark, dingy, and the bathroom was truly awful. Luckily we checked the towel situation - no towels in the room. The beds were so uncomfortable. We had planned to...

I stay at rivermere on a regular basis as I work in the tourist industry. I felt I had to write this review, ref recent reviews. This will be my 90th review, so I'm not a 1 hit wonder. I probably stayed in most all the 30 bedrooms, never once have I found it to be dirty, or any other... More

I was there with a group of college students on a EF tour. We stayed in a room with a double and a twin bed. The room was quiet--no street or hallway noise. Room darkening drapes. The beds had clean linens and two pillows. I thought the bed was hard. There were plenty of outlets for charging our iPhones and... More

The room I stayed in was absolutely disgraceful. It was filthy at one point I felt physically sick over the smell in the room. Price was great and staff were very nice and helpful but they really need to clean up their act!

Stayed here last summer while doing tour of Kerry. Place was ideal, lots of parking, spacious room, clean bathroom. The breakfast could not be faulted lots available to fill you up for a day of touring. Bout ten min walk to the town centre so central enough.

We had 3 couples travelling and booked 3 doubles but got a twin, double and family room which wasn't a great start. Walked into the room and it felt like we had landed in the Sahara, the heater was on it's highest setting and we had to leave the room to let it cool down. The place is very run... More
