This is a small hotel in comparison to others in Killarney but it is every bit as good as its competitors. Really friendly staff and modern spacious bedrooms. Very nice interior decorating. Excellent breakfast but the dining room could do with some curtains here as it is very bare. We were really surprised by the food. We had a superb... More

I remember when tis establishment was Darby O Gills and to be honest the food was poor. Now it is fantastic. The Sunday lunch service from staff is top notch. The beef is so tender. Well done and keep it up.

I stayed here for 1 night after driving the ring of Kerry and it was great! Friendly and helpful staff, great little pub restaurant at the hotel which served beautiful food and had great service from the staff. Rooms were spacious for what we needed and had wifi with comfy beds. Would definitely recommend this place to stay.
