So good to be able to return to this gem of a hotel, it is perfectly located to tour around Killarney with the national park at our doorstep. After fabulous local knowledge and directions from Ciara, we were on our bikes and on the cycle paths to Muckross house in no time and on to Dinis cottage for a toastie and chat with friends with a lake view. A quick turnaround then for cocktails while soaking up the last of the sun before dinner, we enjoyed a really tasty dinner in the lovely lane bar. The enchiladas and veggie snack attack were delicious! The staff were very friendly and accommodating at every turn, also loved our spacious & clean triple room. Can't wait for our next trip already!

Killarney, Ireland4 contributions1 helpful vote
Two friends and I had a fabulous night in the Ross Hotel - a beautiful boutique hotel right in the heart of Killarney. We had a lovely and spacious triple room on the top floor overlooking Killarney town, with my favourite Voya products in the bathroom. We started the night with a cocktail (new and really creative cocktail menu) in the funky Pink Lounge before enjoying a delicious dinner in the gorgeous Lane Bar, followed by a couple more cocktails! I would highly recommend the vegetarian sharing plate and the fish tacos! The staff couldn’t be friendlier or accommodating - you’d know it’s a family-run hotel. We finished our little get-together/get-away with a relaxing breakfast in the Cellar Restaurant. What I really love about the hotel is the way it embraces Killarney but in an updated very cool way.

The Ross hotel was amazing from start to finish, with all the team in the Ross going the extra mile to ensure a great stay. From the moment we were checked in with the front desk, we knew we were staying somewhere special, and we were not disappointed. Food was exceptional in The Lane, our room was perfect, and the hotel is funky with little quirks everywhere but not too bold. I have nothing but compliments, and praise for The Ross and all team we engaged with during our stay – and we look forward once again to visiting your hotel. Keep up the great work

The Ross is fabulously well located in the centre of Killarney, adjacent to the park entrance. It was lovely to hear the clip clop of the horses' hooves outside the window of our room. The decor is lavishly artistic throughout the hotel. The standard of finishes and ultimate comfort in the bedroom was exceptional. The breakfast was wonderful, with all locally sourced, fresh ingredients. The staff were so friendly and helpful at every turn, from the reception to therestaurant and bar. We utilised the lovely pool facilities, parking and bicycle shed in the Killarney Park, across the road. All in all, we had a great time and look forward to our next visit!
