We had a 2 day stay at Mcsweeneys Arm Killarney in August 2015. Brilliant welcome when we arrived, perfect large bedroom at the front of the hotel (which always worries me for the noise outside) never heard a sound from the anyone. Breakfast had everything you could want and more. We decided to eat in the hotel in the evening... More

Spent 4 nights in Killarney with my husband and 3 sons on a recent trip to Ireland and although we didn't stay at the hotel, we went to dinner there TWICE. The steak I had was fantastic and maybe the best I've had ... fresh, cooked to perfection, and just delicious. At home I always buy the best beef I... More

We recently spent 2 nights at the McSweeney Arms Hotel and had a great experience. The owner took great interest in assuring we had all we needed and was especially welcoming. The location is great and within walking distance of restaurants and shopping of all types.

I would highly recommend this hotel. It has a combination of a well run hotel with the hospitality of a B&B. Tony the owner was very helpful in advice for my sightseeing questions. The room had the needed amenities, was very clean and up-to-date, and quiet. It felt like home away from home. Breakfast includes lots of fresh cut fruit... More

Mr. McSweeney and his daughter, Kelly Ann, and staff were all so helpful and made us feel at home start to finish. He acted as our local... More
