No negatives here except that internet was spotty in our room(had to stand in hallway). Third floor was very quiet considering the band playing below. Great option for a downtown bar-hop. Would stay again.

Good room and friendly staff with a great little bar (or two) downstairs. Well located within easy walking distance of everything in Killarney town. No parking, but car can be left in one of two nearby public parking areas which are safe. We would stay here again.

The location is great, right in the strip and a very short walk to the train station and a public pay parking lot. The pub downstairs is a good spot uf looking to grab an easy drink. Staff was pleasant and its hard to beat the price. Best deal in Killarney. If you are fit, give the 35 mile gap... More

we stayed 2 nights in June, found the room to be comfortable with a large bathroom. The room overlooked the street which was quite noisey late at night. Wifi was not good in the room could get a good signal in bathroom. Went to restaurant first night and the pub meal the next night as there was a motorbike convention... More
