“Great Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

We have stayed in this hotel before and returned again in Dec. 2013 for a weekend break.
There was no delay in checking in. Our rooms were very comfortable, clean and extremely warm so had to turn the radiators off and nicely decorated no complaints about the beds either. Good sized bathroom. The breakfast menu had lots of choices including fish, pancakes and smoothies. After eating in the bar on the first night of our stay we decided to eat there again on the second night . The food is great. All the staff were very pleasant especially the bar man who was from Prague (sorry can't remember his name). The music was great, two fab musicians on box and guitar. This hotel is only ten minutes or less walk from town centre. Would definately return and would recommend this hotel for a great stay.

Room Tip: The noise from the boiler can be heard at night from rooms 103 and 105

Dear roseb57

Thank you for your review, following your recent visit to our hotel. We were delighted that you decided to return to stay with us again and I was so pleased to learn that you enjoyed your visit.

I was pleased also to read that you liked the food, the staff and the atmosphere in Kayne's Bar - it's certainly a very popular spot with our residents and locals alike. I will pass your comments on to Thomas and the rest of our staff there.

We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back for another stay sometime in the future.

Kind regards

We only had a short time at Dromhall Hotel 1 and a half days but I'm pretty sure we made the most of it. Upon arrival they had confused our booking but were super nice in conviently and swiftly retifying the mistake. All staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. Rooms were clean and had everything you needed. Breakfast was delicious. It was in a great location, easy accesible to the town and motorways. Our favourite part was the decor of the hotel we thoroughly enjoyed running back in the evening after a long day and lounging about. Would definitelty recommend and hopefully return some day!

Dear NaadC

Thank you for taking the time to post a review following your visit. I was delighted to read how much you enjoyed your brief stay with us. As a family-run and operated hotel, I was particularly pleased to read that you liked the décor and ambience of our hotel.

We place great importance on our friendly and efficient staff and of course on the standard of our food, so it was very rewarding to read your feedback on these 2 important areas.

I hope you may be able to come and stay with us again - perhaps for a little longer next time!

Kind regards

Stayed two nights as part of a tour. Hotel was the best of the lot from that tour and would stay here on our own should we come back. It is approximately a 10 minute stroll from the main street. Room 109.

Lobby area provides a great first impression upon arrival. Step through and first thing that catches the eye is the grand stairway to the 1st floor. Nice fireplace and well appointed decor. Gives sense of stepping back into a more genteel era.

Room was good size, clean, twin bed plus a single with ample space. Great shower and provides bath amenities (shampoo and the like).

Downside is the hard pillows.

Free Wi-Fi, available in rooms. No special code needed.

Breakfast for tours was a sit/down and order rather than buffet (toast, juice and cereals were available self-serve). Tour groups are assigned seating times to control crowds.

Hotel was decorated for the Christmas holiday adding to the ambiance.

Staff was efficient, not overtly outgoing or friendly.

Dear chatdad

Thank you for taking the time to post a review of our hotel, following your recent visit. I was delighted to read that you deemed our hotel the best from your tour and that you enjoyed some of our unique characteristics. I'm sorry though that you found our pillows to be too hard - it's difficult to cater for everyone's individual taste when it comes to pillows but it's unfortunate that you didn't mention it to us during your stay as we would have done our best to find an alternative for you.

I was also pleased to read that you enjoyed your breakfasts with us and the attention of our staff, together with the convenient location of our hotel.

We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back to The Dromhall Hotel sometime in the future.

Kind regards

Great older hotel! Superb customer service, excellent food. Within walking distance of the central city! We were able to take a jaunting car ride from the hotel to the castle & park... The only negative was that the wireless internet was on the blink; everything else was splendid!

We arrive at the hotel via a Jaunty Car (horse drawn carriage). Our bag were already stored in our room. They had a nice stair case to walk up to the rooms ( there was an elevator, but we never took it)

Five - six minute walk to downtown.

They had a spa and pool but we did not use.

Being from Killarney I have eaten in the bar on many occassions and at all times the food has been excellent. There is a wide choice on the menu and the specials offer good value for money.
Service is consistently good and the staff are always so helpful and accommodating. The bar is always clean and inviting and you will find a good mix of locals and tourists. Will definatley be back and would recommend to friends and family.

We stayed here two nights, the room was large, and even though it was at the front of the hotel, there was no street noise, and the view of sheep across the street was cute!! The bed was comfortable, linens were adequate, dinner was good and so was breakfast. It was only a ten minute walk into town, close enough for us!!The staff was very friendly, all in all a great experience, we would definitely come back.
