We booked the Killarney Royal as part of a golf vacation package for SW Ireland. The location was perfect as it was centralized to the wide range of courses we choose. The hotel is in the center of Killarney. Shops, restaurants and pubs are all within easy walking distance. The hotel is well appointed and intimate with comfortable rooms, a... More

Looking around Killarney, I was surprised at the pricing. Definitely more expensive than Dublin! However we managed to get a late deal with Killarney Royal so we arrived in with mediocrity in mind. Our expectations were far surpassed. I had asked over the phone about parking, and there is a public car park located a 3 minute walk behind the... More

My wife and I recently stayed at the Killarney Royal. The hotel is very well located in the centre of town and provides accommodation in very spacious bedrooms. In spite of its central location, the hotel is very quiet, particularly on the upper floors (we stayed on the third floors). The hotel staff are, without exception friendly and helpful. The... More

I'm not a breakfast pastry person but I ate a record number here! They are great. Billy and Callerie(not sure I spelled her name correctly) in the bar area were terrific. I loved this hotel and their staff.

The Killarney Royal is a charming old hotel located right in the center of Killarney. There are plusses and minuses to this hotel. Best of all is the staff. They are engaging, helpful, and highly professional. You couldn't ask for better. The lobby and hallways are old and charming, with interesting stairways that zig and zag in a lovely way.... More

Wonderful hotel in the heart of charming Killarney. Everything worth doing (food and pubs) is a 5 minute walk or less, and all local activities are close. We arrived just after the Kerry/Cork Gaelic football match and the town, including outside and inside our hotel, was packed. Even so, the staff was remarkable to check us in quickly so we... More
