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...

My boyfriend and I (we're in our late 20's) stayed at this hotel for 2 nights and we will never return to this place again. Very disapointed as the majority of the reviews on tripadvisor were positive. The hotel is like stepping back into the 1980's, everything from the musty smell, the old fashioned decor to the utterly bland, overpriced... More

Found it by accident while driving. Lovely! Reasonable prices, clean, complete facilities, wonderful location. Don't think twice. You won't do better. No luxury but clean, complete, friendly, wonderful view - could not ask for more.

Our first time to Kerry as a family, we decided on this hotel based on the beautiful views offered and the location was very central. Only minutes away from a blue flag beach and other neighboring villages. The room was clean for the most part. I found an old dirty sock under the radiator. There was a smell of diesel... More

I stayed in this hotel with three friends for the Daniel O Connell Summer School. Our rooms had breathtaking views of the surrounding scenery and the staff were very attentive and helpful. The rooms were very comfortable. During my stay I ate in the restaurant and also in the bar. On all occasions the food was very good. It was... More
