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!

Staff was friendly and rooms and... More

Stayed here this weekend on a Valentines Break. The rooms were comfortable and modern. The bar was lively and showed the rugby game which drew in a big crowd. The meal was fantastic with great service from Mary. We will definitely be calling back there again :)

Lovely Hotel just a few mins outside Killarney town. Views are amazing. We stayed here for one night B&B and one evening meal. The food was fabulous, loads to choose from and large portions.
