“Unforgettable Stay at The Ross”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

We enjoyed a fantastic stay at The Ross this weekend just past. It was my hen weekend and my family and friends wanted something classy and girlie for our weekend away. The hotel staff were so friendly and helpful - literally nothing was a problem and they made us all feel so welcome. We enjoyed a cocktail and champagne reception in a private room and then had a private dining room for our evening meal - the food and drinks were delicious, options were vast and the service was impeccable. We enjoyed a very comfortable stay in the beautiful accommodation and breakfast the following morning was superb. We enjoyed the comfort of The Ross so much that we also had lunch in the bar there before returning home. Again we were made so welcome and the staff were friendly and helpful without being intrusive. I will definitely be returning to The Ross in the future and would recommend it to anyone.

Dear Tracey140614,

Many thanks for your superb review of The Ross. I am thrilled to hear that you and the girls had such a fantastic weekend with us here. We are especially delighted with your food experience which started with cocktails in the Pink Lounge followed by dinner in the Mezzanine of Cellar One. You and girls were great fun and we were delighted to take care of you all. We hope to see you back here again soon Tracey. Enjoy the wedding!

Wonderful hotel. Wonderful staff. Wonderful location. What more can I say? Nothing was too much bother and Ciara in particular was an exceptional member of staff.
Rooms are tastefully furnished and of a really good size.We only had breakfast at the hotel but it was delicious - again the staff who served at breakfast were excellent.
You will not regret staying here.

Visited in late April for my Father in Law's 70th birthday. With 11 in our group of varying ages this hotel was perfect. Not only good value but excellent quality too. The food in the restaurant and the bar was terrific and the rooms very nice. We were upgraded for free and that was a welcome touch. The hotel is located in a central position with easy access to all that Killarney has to offer. All of the staff were attentive and helpful to our needs. Needless to say my Father in Law enjoyed his birthday trip massively - helped considerably by the Ross hotel experience.

Dear Chris M,

I love your title "cracking small hotel".....We are delighted with this compliment.
It really was lovely to have all your family stay with us for the few nights. Everyone was such great fun and we all enjoyed you staying with us. We look forward to the 80th Birthday!

Best wishes,

We had a great stay at this hotel. It is a small, but really lovely hotel in the centre of Killarney. Really lovely friendly and helpful staff. Only slight negative is that we did not care for the bar food.

Dear Traveller77Cork,

Thanks for taking the time to post a review of the Ross.
We are especially delighted about the comments regarding our team here at the Ross.
I am sorry to hear that the bar food was not to your style. Should you stay another time, our team in the kitchen are very flexible so if there was something you specifically wanted cooked, this can be organised. Many thanks again.

We stopped over in Killarney on our route to the Dingle Penninsula.
We loved our stay in The Ross Hotel.
Modern, design, colorful, everything was perfect.
We went to the restaurant, it was really good.
Breakfast in the downstairs room is really tasty too.
It is really well located as well.
If you stop by do not hesitate.

My wife and I recently stayed in The Ross Hotel to celebrate our wedding anniversary. OMG what can I say about The Ross Hotel and it's amazing staff. From the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty. The reception we were given was just unbelievably. The room was a little haven with a great view, fresh fruit and a gorgeous little treat. We had dinner in the hotels restaurant on Saturday night, even though they were very busy the service and the attention to detail was second to none.
Through out our stay there was one person who could not have done more for us. She answered all our questions and always had a smile on her face, she always called us by our first names and is one of the best assets the hotel has, Thank you Eileen.
We would like to thank all the staff at The Ross Hotel for an amazing weekend.
The Ross Hotel is a little hidden gem in Killarney and would highly recommend the Hotel to anyone looking for an oasis in Killarney.
