The hotel supplied some basic groceries to keep you going for a few days, milk, brown bread, variety boxes of cereal, butter, jam, tea, coffee, sugar. There were plenty of fresh towels & shower gel & soap. The apartment was serviced 3... More

The toilets in the leisure centre ladies room were so smelly, it was disgusting. There is no place apart from one changing table to put small children when you are going to / from the pool (toddlers & babies). There has been no investment/ update in the leisure centre for years, there is no comfort in the changing area, perhaps... More

My family and I had the pleasure of spending two nights here recently. From start to finish the staff could not have been nicer. From the front desk to the restaurant and from the accommodation to the pool we encountered very helpful and friendly staff. Our room was spotlessly clean and spacious. Entertainment each night in the hotel was great.... More

We stayed in the hotel and loved it! The menus could be improved to show the options on show as when we asked we could get a chicken curry or spaghetti bolognaise, other than that the food was fabulous and the sit down restaurant was great value for money with €20 for a 3 course meal. Location is excellent too.... More

Killarney is a great town, lots to do and see but I would advise anyone not to go to this hotel for bar food! There is only about four options on the menu, we opted for the "mixed basket" chicken Goujons, sausages and chips. This is pre cooked and kept in hot (or not in some instances)... It was terrible!!!... More
