Spent 4 nights at this wonderful hotel. Single room on 3rd floor, comfortable bed and just enough room to spread out. Great shower and bathroom, spotless. The owner Tony is very welcoming and friendly. The attached pub and restaurant are excellent, lots of locals. Kevin the bartender is fun and helpful, great service. Breakfast is a delicious choice of cold... More

We enjoyed our stay in Killarney despite the Irish rain. The rooms here are large, but if you face Lewis Street, very noisy as well. There is no air conditioning and the rooms are stuffy when it rains but opening the window lets in all the noise. Hard to get any sleep with a bar directly outside the window. The... More

Stayed for one night during a north to south of Ireland cycle trip with some friends. Ireland is the most friendly country I have ever visited and biggest compliment I can give is this was the most friendly hotel in a trip full of friendly establishments. Hotel is a family run business with everyone from bar staff to hotel staff... More

We have stayed at this property twice in the last year when we were visiting family in Ireland. The first time is when we cruised into Killarney for Easter weekend and were planning on a B and B. We lucked out and got a parking spot right outside, so we say parking karma led us to this wonderful moderate hotel.... More

McSweeney Arms was a great place to base our trip for rounds at Dooks, Waterville and Old Head. We had a coach bus that took us around so we didn't have to deal with driving. Tours of Dingle and Ring of Kerry were spectacular. Staff at McSweeney made our trip special. Starting the day with one of the best Irish... More

A great 3 day stay. Hotel was very well maintained with very helpful, friendly staff. Very nice bar and great breakfast. The only point to improve would be if the room had tea and coffee making facilities.

I really wanted to give the hotel a higher rating. You'd be hard pressed to find a better staff, they were pleasant and very helpful. The breakfasts were plentiful and tasty, the food in the pub also very good. Rooms exceptionally clean and large although the bathroom lacked shelf space for toiletries. To me the primary purpose of a hotel... More

Had a drink and lunch in this wonderful bar. The food was excellent, the drink was top class and the service could not be better. Highly recommend this excellent bar. The location is perfect, near the train station. The bar was spotlessly clean when we visited.
