I booked this hotel since it has some of the most consistently positive reviews of any Killarney property, but was shocked to find a functional but ordinary property. No fridge, poor wifi, no AC. Loud, hotter in rooms than outside, no views - situated next to the historic liquor store of Killarney, perhaps that was best. I will grant that... More

We just returned from our first visit to Ireland. This hotel is a jewel - the location is terrific and the rooms are beautiful.The breakfast is fantastic, and the staff was accommodating as my husband made multiple changes to the listed breakfast options. Lovely hotel!

we had 2nd floor front 211 overlooking town centre square, it was a beautiful comfortable room with Jacuzzi, also Tea and Coffee making facility and Flat Screen TV with Sky. You could spoil yourself with the Pent House suite as my son and his wife did, it has the biggest Jacuzzi I have ever seen, big enough for the family.... More

A lovely hotel in a perfect location. We only stayed one night, but the room was spacious and very clean. On arrival we were greeted by Les, who was very friendly and extremely helpful. He arranged a very early breakfast for us, as we had an early flight to catch. I sure I will be visiting Killarney again, its a... More

Nice rooms, great breakfast and the waiters kind of reminiscented us of vienna - but with the irish friendliness instead of the lovely cynism we are used to ;-) Whoever is looking for comfortable rooms near the center of Killarney finds what he needs: The Railwaystation, as also a lot of pub's and bars are nearby - or short-said: the...

This is a beautiful, original, classy bed and breakfast that has more of a boutique hotel feel to it as each room is different and the antique style mixed with the modern makes you not want to leave. The beds are so comfortable and are huge. The bathrooms are marble with a Jacuzzi bath for added relaxation. The food is... More
