Everything about this hotel was marvelous. It is, without question, the best hotel we stayed at in all of Ireland/Northern Ireland and probably one of the best places I have ever stayed in my entire life. The staff were all very friendly, the lobby was gorgeous, our room was amazing and comfortable, and the location was ideal. We couldn't ask for more, and were thrilled that the hotel even covered the cost of parking in the nearby car park. Anyone visiting Ireland should visit Killarney, and anyone visiting Killarney should stay at the Killarney Royal Hotel.

My wife and I are from Dublin and stayed for 2 nights at end January, our first time in the hotel. We had a fabulous room, our meal was excellent and the staff could not have been friendlier or more helpful. An old style (I mean this in a very positive way) hotel, run and maintained to very high standards, very comfortable and welcoming, spotlessly clean.We really loved our stay and have recommended to everyone we have spoken to since. Cannot speak highly about how helpful and welcoming the staff were. Note - this applied equally to staff in numerous shops, restaurants etc, and made a very welcome change from what is the typical experience in Dublin. Well done Killarney and the Killarney Royal Hotel.
