The hotel was in an excellent location, within walking distance to everything. When we arrived we asked the front desk employee to call and make us a... More

Stayed here during ring of Kerry cycle weekend. Kelly Ann couldn't do enough for us orgainising car parking in nearby car park and having breakfast ready from 5:15am on day of cycle. The breakfast was really good, with full selection of fruits, cereals and of course the Irish breakfast. Location is super right in middle of Killarney. Only downside is... More

I've stayed in a few hotels in Killarney and have passed McSweeney Arms many times but never went in. 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
