“Don't stay here.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2008

Firstly the pictures on the web are deceiving, they may the kitchen and living area look spacious when in reality they are not.

Secondly the washing (although only on a 30 degree wash) ruined my best top by ripping it and taking off one of the straps (still haven't located it). The dryer even though was on for four hours did not dry any clothes and we brought limited clothes with us and we thought we could wash and dry down there.

However the most disappointing thing was the location. I had booked a one bed apartment and to my delight I was up graded to a two bed town house. I now know why! The town houses look directly onto a construction site. We couldn't look out the window without being practically face to face with five builders. The noise was unbearable, all night metal clanked and work commenced before 8am every day with drilling and hammering. I feel we were mislead and only put into this house because the capacity was full elsewhere and nobody would have been willing to pay full price for this! Further they thought we wouldn't complain because we had been given an upgrade. Obviously we would have been much happier in our original one bed rather than put up with this. In reality we all slept in one room anyway to get as far away from the noise as possible. I understand they cannot do anything about construction but this should be explained rather than make out to people that they are getting a free upgrade when it was the furthest thing from an upgrade you could get.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2008

We stayed 5 nights in Park Place Apartments, Killarney recently, and we were very happy overall. First thing we liked was we could book 5 nights overlapping two weeks i.e. Thursday through to Monday. Almost all apartments or self catering accomodation in Killarney require you to book a week, fixed at Saturday to Saturday. The rate was €461 for 5 nights, which we found good value for the high quality of accomodation.

The apartment came with 2 bedrooms, living/kitchen area, 2 bathrooms (one ensuite) and balcony area. Floors and walls were all marble, so no carpets to worry about getting messy, since we have 2 kids. Main bathroom came with a jacuzzi bath, which our kids loved! Kitchen had all the mod cons you expect.

The apartments are secured, with access through electronic doors, and likewise for the underground car park - felt very safe here.

The location of Park Place is excellent, on High Street right in the centre of Killarney. You walk 100 yards and you are among the restaurants, bars, shops etc. However, our apartment was really quiet - no street noise at all.

The staff we dealt with briefly at check in and check out were helpful and friendly.

Overall, Park Place provide an excellent standard of self catering accomodation in a great location.
