On arrival they advised us the rooms weren't available and was upgraded to the Presidential Suite without even having to say anything. We were amazed when we arrived up to the... More

Stayed here for long weekend, beautiful hotel and beautiful room. The hotel is in good location, €6 taxi to town centre at night. My favourite part of the stay was using the pool. To use the pool, you must sign into the spa first. Towels are provided, you are free to use the jacuzzis, steam room, sauna, ice room and... More

I'll keep this short and sweet as I have only good things to say but nothing to elaborate on. I work in and stay in hotels all over the country every week (I am a performer in a high end band-weddings, corporate events, etc take me all over the country) and this place is wonderful. Go to Killarney and stay... More

Breakfast was excellent-large selection and the homemade brown bread was delicious. Spa was good, not the best I've experienced but having a children free environment was lovely. Kids... More
