Our second visit here and its getting better. Mc Sweeneys is great simply because what they offer is very rarely found these days, value good service and genuine owners and staff.

My husband and I really enjoyed having a few drinks and dinner here. The staff is friendly and the food is good. We experienced our first Guinness with a little black currant in it and it was quite tasty.

One night we were too late for... More

We were told by Kelly at the reception desk that she is the third generation of her family running the hotel. Not only was she friendly and eager to offer local information, but her parents, the staff in the restaurant and pub, and all others were extremely friendly. The hotel including the comfortable room were spot clean, the breakfast including... More

Although I did not stay here, along with nine friends I had lunch and evening drinks in the bar. We were in Killarney to celebrate a special birthday over the St Patrick's weekend. Both food and drink were excellent. The staff were gems making us very welcome.

Probably the best hotel I've ever stayed at for one reason - Mr McSweeney! He is on duty from breakfast time to bar closure, and as a result his staff provide the most focussed and detailed attention to their duties. Comfy, lovely people, great breakfast, tea delivered to room free of charge on request, nothing was too much trouble. I... More

The whole McSweeney family was very helpful, very friendly, good source for assistance with golf courses and hikes around the Park. Three couples spent 2 nights here, great rooms, clean accommodations. Busy intersection, so loading and unloading can be a bit daunting, but luckily double parking is not... More
