We ate in the restaurant at the Ross on a Friday night. The early bird option for a 2 course meal and including a cocktail was excellent value. The food was delicious and the service was very good. We were entertained by a young chap of 16 who played the piano brilliantly. Would highly recommend

We loved this hotel. Has a quirky charm and real feel of a boutique hotel. Service was great. We loved our room and just wished we could spend more days. Pillows and beds were very comfortable. We did not eat in the restaurant but it was very busy (the pub restaurant) and the food looked fantastic. If you are driving... More

Great location, excellent food , clean and comfortable. A short walk from either the bus or railway station. Located across the street from Killarney National Park. Be sure to ask for a room away from their bar or the music may keep you up later than you would like.

I love this hotel.. Only downside I live too near it to justify staying there but love the lane bar and it's amazing good food.. Great menu and always something diff on it. Great place for a girly nite out to chill and chat over a glass of wine or one of their renowned cocktails.
