I stayed in this hotel last year and had an awful experience from start to finish. The staff, in particular the receptionist and the woman who runs the hotel were rude and extremely unprofessinal. Firstly when I tried to cancel my room the 24 hours before my intended visit they informed me they will be charging me despite giving 24... More

I’m just back from a one week stay in Derrynane Holiday Homes. It’s such a special place I’m planning to return in a few months. Have stayed in the Hotel before and the welcome from Mary O’Connor to the house was still the same. The feeling of calm and healing I felt there will remain for a long time…walks on... More

Stayed for 3 nights in August with friends and family. We had a fantastic time and the staff are so welcoming. The kids had a ball and we all love to visit when we are in South Kerry. We have stayed here a number of times over the years and will continue to do so in the future.

We have just arrived back home from our 3rd visit to Ireland and we have always stayed at the Derrynane Hotel and Holiday Homes. On our last 2 trips we have stayed for 5 weeks. We travel in the off season, Oct-Dec and find Ireland extremely appealing at this time of year. The scenery is spectacular and there are no... More

We had a four night stay at the end of August 2014. Our 7 year old daughter had the time of her life in the children's club each evening, being looked after Sheila. This enabled my husband and I to dine in the restaurant at our leisure. We enjoyed delicious and locally sourced food and I experienced the best rack... More

We stayed for 3 nights and found it a wonderful experience. I would hate to see the place updated, i.e. big screen television's etc.. I love the fact that it does not have the bland sameness as Celtic tiger hotels. Mary & Catherine are two gemstones in the ring of Kerry, brilliant, friendly and invaluable. I have recommended Derrynane to... More

I was one of a group of eighty hillwalkers from Cork,who spent this week-end in Derrynane Hotel. Mary O Connor proprietor, was there to greet us on arrival. My bedroom was nicely decorated, bright and very spacious. It overlooked manicured grounds and there had magnificent sea views. Our delicious meals were served in a huge dining room ,with amazing panoramic... More

The hotel location was great for splitting the Rink of Kerry into a two-day journey. The view from the hotel was amazing! 5 stars there. But, as other have mentioned, it is in need of a major updating. Older rooms, musty smells, etc. 1 star for the rooms. The part that was most surprising to me and I haven't seen... More

You get what you pay for with this hotel and with a little Irish hospitality thrown in!!! Ok, its cheap (and cheerful). It does not advertise to be anything other than a 3 star hotel in a beautiful hotel location and that is what you get... the rooms are basic but clean and the breakfast is buffet style and will...
