“Fantastic experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Was part of a group of 12 guys in Ireland for a golfing trip and we stayed at the Killarney Royal for the entire week. The staff and team at the hotel made us feel like family and always treated us with respect and kindness and greeted us by name every time. They tried to make every request we made happen. We couldn't have been happier with the service, the food for breakfast and the fun at the bar. Wholeheartedly recommend the place.

The staff was very welcoming! The hotel is right in the heart of the city, everything was within walking distance for us! The hotel was warm, welcoming and very clean and the staff was very helpful. The hotel room was clean, the bed was comfortable. We had a smaller room vs. the previous places we had just traveled from. However it fit our needs just fine as we were there for only one night. Parking was a little ways away, this was the first and only time we had to park far away from our hotel. It was a pain to lug our stuff all the way into the hotel, there isn't much room to park to unload on the busy street, although others were doing that. We are young & able to walk so it really wasn't that big of a deal at all. When we left, we got smart & pulled our car up and the staff helped us load it all back up into the car.

Room Tip: maybe see if there is upgrades for a bigger room if you are staying multiple days, if we were I woul...

An amazing hotel in the centre of Killarney. From the minute you walk into the hotel you are greeted with a warm welcome. The staff are all so friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Had dinner in the restaurant on one of our evenings and the food is top class. Rooms are spotless and the bed very comfortable.
Breakfast is great and because the cooked breakfast is fresh and not your usual hot buffet.
Will be returning to this hotel as soon as possible. I am only just home and I already want to go back!

We weren't staying here, but popped in for a drink and apparently lots of other people had the same idea!-- handsome foyer with lots of seating, very comfortable. There is food available in the bar. Would definitely consider staying here on my next visit

The hotel is old but very well maintained. The rooms are large, very confortable, clean and quiet (our windows were noy on the main street). We were a group of 8 golfers and stayed there for 5 nights. Great comments from all the members of our group. The personnel is extremely attentive to all your needs and they are even ready to serve breakfast earlier if you need to leave early in the morning. It is well situated and you can walk to all the restaurants and shops nearby.

This is a small boutique type hotel in the centre of Killarney. It is beautifully furnished and has an interesting history. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff. Unfortunately I did not stay here , but intend to return. I visited on two occasions, having afternoon tea first time and lunch the second time. Both were excellent value, stylishly served in luxurious surroundings. I was surprised that the price was so low. The cost was much lower than eating in a cafe and the food , scones and cream ,fruit salad and smoked salmon and salad was prepared with such care.
