We stayed this this weekend for one night, party of 4, had 2 double rooms. Hotel is very deceptive in appearance. Very small lobby area but has very big rooms. All in all a really great experience. Rooms were beautiful, both rooms were on the 3 floor. Our room was on to a side street which did have some traffic... More

Stayed here with a friend for 6 nights in September. Great location as you can walk to downtown and to nearby sights such as Ross Castle (we didn't have a car). The food at the restaurant was WONDERFUL! We ate there 3 nights. The room was clean, large and comfortable for the 2 of us. And most of all, Kelly... More

Very impressed with the hotel, great location, impressive rooms, quality in the decor throughout the hotel. Staff were very helpful, bar drinks and food were good value for money. Will be returning to this hotel again in the near future. Would highly recommend this hotel as a hidden gem.

Killarney was probably my favorite stop along our trip around Ireland. The Mcsweeney Arms hotel is in a great location in town as well, so we were excited to grab a room for two nights here. The rooms were well decorated, comfortable, and clean. We had a great street view, and the noise wasn't as bad as you would assume... More

Nice hotel right in the heart of the city. The room was large and spacious with newer furniture and bedding. There is no air conditioning but this is normal at most hotels so not much of an issue since windows open and there is a fan provided. Make sure to park behind the hotel to say money since the other... More

We recently had a 2 night stay at McSweeneys which we thoroughly enjoyed. The rooms were spacious, very clean and provided all facilities. The staff at the hotel were very helpful and friendly. Breakfasts were also excellent. The hotel is very central and we had no issues parking at a nearby car park at a very reasonable price (although the... More

We have just had three fantastic night's here 28th, 29th,30th July 2014. We walked in off the street looking for accommodation, after being greeted so warmly, getting a room rate, looking at the spotless room we'd have, we were sold, we had no problem with parking as there was an inexpensive public car park nearby. The meals we had here,... More

If you visit Ireland, you shoud go to Killarney. It's a super little town. I went with a group of 12 golfers, and it was a great central location to hit all of the best courses in Southwest Ireland. The McSweeney Arms Hotel is THE place to stay. Food and service are excellent. The hotel is family operated, and Kelly,... More

We stayed three nights in this wonderful hotel. We found it on a whim after we parked up the block at the public lot - we thought we would just wander through town and find a place to stay - not realizing it was a busy time due to the horse races happening at the time we were in town!... More

Folks. We stayed in this hotel last week 17/18th july. Fabulous rooms, fabulous food and very homely athmosphere. Central to all locations in Killarney. family run and very friendly and professional staff. Do not go to Killarney without booking into this hotel. Matt.
