The hotel was totally booked out so we only managed to stay one night. This is a very homely hotel with friendly helpful staff. Our waitress Nancy was just so lovely. We had very comfortable rooms. Breakfast was hot --- we were advised of same but maybe it was a little too hot as one member of our party found... More

This was one of our hotels on an 8-day trip to Ireland with eleven family members. The trip was marvelously arranged through Maloney and Kelly Travel. All of the accommodations were much more luxurious than we would usually choose, but given the group price each was a very worthwhile splurge. My only regret is that I don’t have a typical... More

The staff was very warm & eager to help. The hotel was charming, clean & in a great location! There are two great pharmacies in the area if you need anything at all, Kennelly Pharmacy! Good shopping on the street and plenty of fun bars and restaurants.

Stayed here for 2 nights with husband and our youngest child. From moment of arrival to our departure I felt right at home. Clean, cosy and warm atmosphere and so welcoming. Plenty of breakfast delights to choose from, very helpful, pleasant and professional staff. Room was again clean, cosy and well spacious. Will definitely stay again.

The Royal is a warm and comfortable hotel. It isn't grand or flash but it is charming and pleasant. The room was huge with a great bathroom and very good beds. The breakfasts are excellent, especially our new gourmet find - Irish bread which is dense and nutty. The hotel is opposite all the wonderful nightlife - the bars selling... More

We booked a break which consisted of 3 nights B&B and 2 evening meals - it wasn't cheap by any means but I like the look of the hotel and also the location. When we arrived around 4pm, our hotel room was ready and staff were very friendly and helpful. Our luggage was taken to our room and the receiptionist... More

We were a little disappointed in our rooms. This was supposed to be a top rated hotel and we expected more. Although the front desk staff and bell men were terrific, it didn't make up for the rooms. Compared to the other hotels on the trip, this was not up to our expectations.

Stayed here for our third night in the area. A classic older hotel that has much character. Bed big and comfy, good pillows. The restaurant had a very good breakfast. Location is fantastic- close to shopping and the heart of Killarney. Being older, there is a need to modernize some aspects ( creaking floors, sound proofing to halls- but indeed... More

This hotel is in an excellent position near to train and bus stations and also to the myriad of night life that Killarney has to offer. The service was amazing - every single member of staff was so helpful and competent that it would be impossible to single out any one of them. The cleanliness was faultless combined with a... More

We found this hotel searching for top hotels in Killarney on trip advisor. It looked good, but we were apprehensive because you just never know. Expectations were exceeded, comfortable and large rooms, clean, lovely staff with great service. We had 2 single rooms and a double, the singles were almost nicer than the double. It's in an ideal central position,... More
