This was our second visit to The Ross. Ideally situated if you do not have a car. We took the bus to Killarney and the walk to the hotel took less than 10 minutes. The rooms are large and airy with great big bathrooms. Our dresser was a bit run down, but the bed was great and the shower was fabulous. The girls at the front desk are extremely helpful and seem to care about you having an enjoyable experience. We had a minor problem with the fridge in our room and it was replaced fr us. The hotel a a few dining options as well as a nice bar/lounge. Breakfast is great with a good selection of pastries and cereal as well as hot breakfast options. I receommend this hotel for anyone going to Killarney

This hotel is fabulous and very chic. We had a meal and did the cocktail class for my hen party. The staff are amazing and very attentive. We were a large group of 23 and they catered to our every need. We were a hen party and they did not dismiss us as just another hen party, their service was amazing. The food is delicious and the presentation is beautiful. They have a wide selection of fnatastic cocktails. I can not wait to return.

Myself & my husband stayed in The Ross Hotel Killarney and loved it. The hotel is beautiful. In fact unique. Rooms are spacious and elegant. The bar is always busy & the cocktails go down a treat! The location in the heart of Killarney is fantastic. The food & service in the restaurant was outstanding both for breakfast & dinner. Bart the restaurant manager is outstanding at his job. We will definetly be back!

Spent 2 nights here. I had actually made a booking.com because I did not realize they had their own website but had a slight change so I cancelled that booking and booked directly with them. Our email exchange was very quick and the staff was very responsive.

If you arrive by bus, the main bus station is on East Avenue and the hotel is less than a 10 min walk. If you walk through the Outlet Center and come out the main entrance, take a left and pass The Malton hotel, Killarney Park Hotel, the cinema. Ross will be on your right. The location cannot be beat. You turn the corner and you are on High Street where there is plenty of food and shopping.

We had room 303. Since we stayed on a Saturday and Sunday night, it was pretty loud on Saturday night with the bar right below us. We had 2 twin beds and the wifi was pretty fast (slightly slower at night). There is a safe in the room and also a heated towel rack in the bathroom. Housekeeping does a good job . The even vacuumed our carpet after a 1 night stay. The room was very comfortable and we had a very pleasant stay. Definitely would recommend and would stay again!

My daughter and I stayed 3 nights at The Ross on our combined birthday trip to London and Ireland. The staff at The Ross was great - as soon as we arrived they upgraded us to a Junior Suite complete with a separate sitting area and a gas fireplace. The hotel is very convenient to the beautiful Killarney National Park. We had breakfast at the hotel 2 mornings, lunch one day and dessert - all very good. Parking for the hotel is available at their sister hotel just down the street (Killarney Park Hotel). Next door to The Ross is a great pub called Hannigan's Pub - don't miss the sticky toffee pudding for dessert!

A group of 12 of us "girls" of varying ages enjoyed the luxury of a trip to The Ross on 13th April. Our overnight package @ 110 euro pps included afternoon tea on arrival, bubbles in the pink room before a 2 course meal in Cellar One and late check out the following day after a delicious and scrumptious breakfast the menu is so varied that we all were more than satisfied with the choices! From the moment we arrived we were so warmly welcomed and checked in we felt ,yes this is going to be a most enjoyable get together!!Myself and my daughter were upgraded to a suite a very welcome touch so spacious and comfortable, all the other rooms were just as flawless! I would recommend The Ross highly if you are travelling to Killarney and looking for a fun and fashionable place to stay and be seen!
