Stand at River a Island after 4yr absence and it is still as good, as it was then. The staff have remained largely unchanged, which is lovely. Although the room, 104 wasn't great this time. It overlooked the Main Street, and so we had all the 'rowdy's' shouting outside the Hotel whilst they had a cigarette on the Friday night,... More

I have just returned from a short tour around South West Ireland which was based at this hotel. We were a group of 26 people and we all thought the hotel was very good. The bedrooms are spacious with a double bed and a single bed in each and with easy to operate shower and bath controls. The TVs in... More

We arrived slightly later than anticipated for a 4 night stay, as part of a large group. The check in was the quickest I have come across in a long time, which was much appreciated as the journey had been a long one. Right from the start the staff were very helpful, attentive, and welcoming. The rooms are a good... More

Stayed for three nights while on a coach tour of the area, hotel accommodation clean and comfortable but views from the room limited by rooftops at rear of hotel, meals and service good with excellent selection and friendly staff. Castleisland typical small provincial Irish town with not much to attract anyone but good base for touring the Ring of Kerry... More

Lovely welcome when the coach drew up outside the hotel. My group were very well looked after even though the hotel was very busy as our stay was over a bank holiday weekend. Friendly staff, good choice of menu in the first floor restaurant. Bedrooms clean and tidy. Good location for the Ring of Kerry, Dingle and away from the... More

We were a bit apprehensive about this hotel but we needn't have worried. From the moment we stepped through the door we were made welcome. We travelled as part of a coach party and made to feel that nothing was too much trouble. Our coach broke down on one outing and the driver informed the hotel we would be late.... More

Stayed as we were playing golf close by. Room was clean and spacious. TV wasn't modern, but no big deal as it wasn't used. Front bar area is quite small and the larger part is a mix between a restaurant and a bar which is slightly strange. There may have been another area that wasn't open. Food was inexpensive and...

Stopped in Castle island for lunch on a trip to Crag caves. The River Island hotel looked nice from the outside. When we went in we were redirected to another location upstairs for lunch. First signs were bad. Place was totally deserted for lunch. The menu on display at the entrance was different to the one we were given at... More
