“Great value, close to town, friendly and helpful staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012 via mobile

Stayed there for a two night break, really enjoyed it, used the leisure centre facilities, found Irene very helpful at hotel reception, we stayed for the horse racing festival and will return. It's a very short stroll into Killarney and if you do order a taxi you won't be waiting long. There was no problem getting a late drink in the residents bar either. Breakfast was self service which is very good. Overall we were more than satisfied.

We spent only one night (August 12th, 2012) at this hotel, but I wish I spent more! It was just a dream, from the pic's I see before I go there until the reality. Killarney is a nice city and this hotel reflects the same nature as the city. Facilities are new, clean and nice. I felt cozy in the bedroom and I enjoyed dinner as well as their swimming pool, sauna, ...
There was no WiFi available from the bedrooms, only in the lobby which was a large and comfortable space.
Very friendly staff! I would certainly recommend this hotel and if I go back to Killarney, no need to look for any other accommodation.

Stayed one night while on business in the area. The reception staff were friendly and helpful. They recommended restaurants and gave great advice on Killarney. Room was at the standard you would expect, was clean and practical for a short stay. Handy for Killarney centre being 10 mins in a taxi. Seemed to be a popular hotel for tour buses which is OK, but need to watch for large groups suddenly appearing at Breakfast. No wifi in the rooms but a cable connection, speed was a little slow

We booked the Holiday Inn Killarney based on the price. We booked for a group of 13 people on a hiking weekend. Prior to arrival, the General Manager Misja contacted us to check if we had any special requirements. On arrival, he came to greet us and to make sure we had all we needed.
The receptionist was very friendly and for the whole weekend we found the staff to be very friendly and helpful without exception.
Our two nights at the hotel were great and the breakfast and evening meals were very good.
All of our group commented on how good the staff were and we will definitely return.
We did not get to use the leisure facilities but did hear that they were good.
the rooms were up to a good standard and clean. Bathroom was clean and also good standard. The mattress was a bit bumpy but we had no real problem sleeping.
It took us 10 minutes to walk into town and the price of a taxi from town centre to hotel was €6.
We will definitely return to the Holiday Inn. Well done to the Misja and his staff for great service on a very busy full house weekend!!
