Just returned from a three night stay. We enjoyed every minute. We ate in the restaurant the 1st night where we were served by Niall. He was an absolute delight, charming knowledgable and funny. Thanks Niall! Food was also delicious! They didn't have the Côte de Bouef on the menu that night however the food and beverage manager (sorry can't... More

Clean comfortable 4* hotel Lots of space - staff doing an excellent job - even a duty manager with a sense of humour - dont ask about "Dolly the sheep or Polly the Sheep" !! Rooms clean, comfortable and well furnished - try and avoid a room on the back as we did - it's noisy with machinery and rubbish... More

My husband and I stayed in the Riverside Hotel on 16th August past and we were very disappointed with the quality of the room. 1. There was no central heating in the room (only an electric heater on the wall, which could be construed as a fire hazard if it had stayed on long enough to build up a bit... More

The website encouraged me to give this hotel a go and we were not disappointed. Exceptionally friendly staff, great service from all the staff from reception to night staff. They were always willing to go the extra mile. Rooms were spotless and well maintained and the food was excellent. A great experience and we will defo be back next year

The hotel is clean and bright. The restaurants are handy and competent in case you just don't want to brave Killarney traffic. The staff is friendly and ready to help with anything you need. We enjoyed our stay very much.

This hotel is really past old, it's in dire need of a renovation. The furniture is old and scuffed. There's dust all over everything, and there are funny smells around. Like the smell my vacuum cleaner makes when it's been in the closet for a while. The shower curtain is musty and the towels are small and thin. I don't... More

Location is close to the city center where all the restaurants and shops are but it's not in a noisy location as some hotels can be too close to the action. I had to see to find a doctor immediately and the front desk called a clinic that could take me on a Sunday. I was seen within a few... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Riverside Hotel. All the staff were knowledgeable about the area and were very helpful and friendly no matter what time of day, especially Christy in the Bistro Bar.

We stayed in this hotel twice this summer, and both times it was excellent. Staff & management were excellent to us due to a double death in our family. All we can say is many thanks. Next year we will be back in the Riverside Hotel again

Stayed for two nights. Lovely room. Staff friendly. Had breakfast both mornings - a little disappointing for a four star hotel. Expected more variety. Would have loved fresh fruit but it was out of a tin. Otherwise a good experience and in a very central location.
