We were booked in through bookings.com at a reduced rate for a family room. We made it clear that there were three of us but the room was only prepared for two.

Lovely hotel situated a little outside Killarney. Such lovely staff and location. We stayed over a busy weekend as the ring of Kerry was on. Yet it didn't take away from a lovely break. Breakfast was really tasty and got us our food early for the morning of the cycle. Will return for another stay soon.

This hotel is situated about 2 miles outside of the town and looks smart from the road. Inside it is like a tardis, being much bigger than it looks. The rooms are truly fantastic, newly refurbished and very stylish. The food and restaurant are are top quality. There is a very cosy and spacious bar with frequent entertainment. All of... More

I went here for dinner and found the place quite nice, the staff were quite excellent. The restaurant area is a little utilitarian which lost the place a star. The meal itself was truly excellent and if your looking for just an amazing meal well this place is excellent and essentially for me I was left eat my meal without... More

Stayed here for a 1 night getaway. Really impressed with the large rooms and comfortable beds. Very clean. Staff really looked after us and the little touches made our stay special. Had a 4 course meal in the bar area - tasty food, well presented. Live music in the bar which was nice and relaxing. Breakfast next morning was superb-... More

Located just outside killarney on the mallow Road, great staff, good food and lovely modern bedrooms. Locals are great and very welcoming. If you wanted more exciting venues then a short taxi ride will get you to killarney for around € 8-10 Would definitely go back again.

Dinner and breakfast were lovely. The room was very modern and clean. We had a lovely big tv! Not within walking distance of Killarney but a taxi was quite cheap. Plus the lady at reception was so nice and friendly!

This is a quaint boutique hotel on the outside of Killarney. It was a perfect spot for our Ring of Kerry tour. The hotel looked like it was being renovated in the hallways and once this is finished will definitely improve the feel of the hotel. The wifi only works in the main foyer. Staff was friendly and rooms and... More
