We booked last minute and were pleasantly surprised firstly by reception which had a very cosy feel and greeted by a really nice girl on reception. The room was huge with 4 large sash windows and a bed that would fit... More

Spotless throughout. The only problem at breakfast, was deciding what to have!! There was a fantastic selection of fresh fruit and everything else from cereals to... More

We stayed in the McSweeney Arms Hotel in Kilarney, Ireland and it was one of the best places to stay that I have ever been. The young lady, Kelly Ann, booked our rooms and the rooms were perfect in every way. Kelly Ann told us of the restaurant inside the hotel called the Sand Trap. We ate in the Sand... More

We are a group of 7 and finding a hotel for a Friday night in Kilarney was difficult. The McSweeney's Arms Hotel made great accommodations for us, including getting a handicap room for one of our couples. The family is great and must never sleep because they are always here working hard! While we were looking for our next place... More
