Having spent two weeks in Killarney and eating in many different bars and hotels , this was by far the nicest meal we had with the most extensive menu in the town I have seen with something for everyone ! Highly recommend the duck ! Great atmosphere in the bar also , My only regret is not finding it sooner... 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.

Stumbled upon the McSweeney Arms Hotel simply because it was close to a public parking lot. It was a great find, and even though I only stayed one night, it was a delightful experience because of the helpfulness of P.C., who checked me in. He was very helpful with directions and suggestions, and even prepared a proper cup of tea... More

This hotel feels like a B&B. The room we stayed in with a double and single bed was adorable with quilts and antique furniture; and big enough to move around. It overlooked the street so was a bit noisy but we had a great view of the street. The host Tony and P.C. who checked us in were so helpful... More

Stayed 5 nights. The rooms were clean and neat and the location is great for exploring Killarney. The service was unbeatable, as was the food. You can really tell the difference in a family run operation, they actually care about their guest's experience. Tony helped us with some lost luggage and was always helpful with directions. Kelly was great serving... More

We loved our 3 night stay at the McSweeney Arms Hotel. On arrival we were warmly greeted and given a room upgrade because we were staying for 3 nights. Our room was lovely, it was very large with a huge comfy bed and I loved the view of the street below. The bar is a very nice space with wood... More
