“Great Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2011

We stayed at the killarney hotel as our friend was getting married at the local cathedral and the reception was at the hotel. On the whole we had a great time , the double room was spacious and exceptionally clean. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. As a wedding venue it is recommended, the food was fantastic and the staff once again were very efficient.
However I don't think the hotel feels 5 star , maybe it was 5 or 6 years ago but to deserve a high rating it would have to be exceptional which i don't think this hotel is. The room had an incredibly dated tv in the corner and the mini bar was empty. I was also quite shocked that on arrival whilst we waited for our room to be appointed we were offered tea or coffee I assumed this would be complimentry as we weren't shown a drinks menu so I was quite surprised to get a bill.

The outward appearance and inward decor of this hotel was very pretty. The flowers that adorn the entrance are gorgeous and add ambiance to the hotel. we had a small suite that was very nicely appointed and comfortable. However, what was not comfortable was the temperature in the room. There was a wall unit air conditioner that helped to cool to a certain degree, but never really adequately cooled our room. We did call down and ask about a fan and to their credit we had a fan in our room within minutes. The staff was very accommodating and pleasant in all areas. The food left something to be desired but we were a part of a large group and so only experienced buffet style meals so possibly if ordering individually it may have been better. By far from everything we saw in Killarney, it seemed as if our hotel was the most elegant and out of the main stream tourist area. I would recommend this hotel if I were Killarney bound.

We stayed at Killarney Park Hotel on August 13th and 14th. The service was the best I have ever had. Anywhere. Ever.

Here are some examples:

My husband was exhausted trying to drive on the left. Aine (sp) found a driver to drive our rental car to Waterford the next day (on a Sunday no less!) She also took care of contacting Hertz to get his name added to the driver's list for the car.

Ciernan was superb at facilitating our stay, and

Norma not only bandaged my son's bike accident - but made him the best gluten free food he's ever had at a restaurant. Our dyslexic 9 year old was so taken that he sat down and scrawled her a thank you note - no small feat.

They really made our trip to Ireland so much better!

I stayed here for a Wedding. Very impressed with the hotel , location in the centre of own was fantastic. Meal was gorgeous. Only complaint was when asked for room service for breakfast was told I had left it too late - small bending of the rules would have been appreciated!!Also was disappointed that the outdoor hot tub was being serviced so couldnt use it during the stay...and ran out of our beer.....As the hotel is quite expensive just these little things should have been sorted in my opinion
