Reviewed May 6, 2014

This property was picked out by our travel agent and had no idea what to expect when we arrived. What a pleasant surprise. The hotel was convenient for walking into downtown Killarney and far enough away from the road to avoid any street noise. Speaking of the room.....the only word that comes to mind is WOW!. We were given a Junior Suite which was much more spacious than we needed. The bathroom was huge and contained both a full body shower and a deep soaking tub.

The hotel staff was phenomenal. Our initial contact was Hugh at the bellman's desk. He was able to give us some great tips for dining and sightseeing and arranged a tour of the Dingle Peninsula for us the morning after our arrival.

We had drinks and snacks in the bar on our arrival which were very good. The breakfast that was included in our rate was fantastic and service was top-notch.

Sadly we only scheduled 2 nights here. Can't wait to return to Killarney and the Killarney Park Hotel will definitely be our first choice location.

Room Tip: Bring your own international voltage converters. While the hotel has a few there are limited choice...

Paid our third visit in 11 months to the Killarney Park in March. We did look at other hotels around the country but nothing appealed to us as much as this hotel. The minute we pull up outside the door and hand the keys of the car over to Hugh we relax. Love the laid back atmosphere and the great staff. Once again Aine checked us in, and was as friendly as ever. Didn't bother going out to dinner on Saturday night. Instead we had a delicious leisurely dinner in the bar. After the equally tasty breakfast on Sunday we strolled around the National Park for a few hours and headed back to the hotel for tea and scones. Love their scones, so fresh and the jam and cream, yum. had the swimming pool to ourselves and we love sitting in the outdoor hot tub overlooking the gardens. Ate dinner in the dining room that night and again had a lovely meal. By the time we left on Monday we were totally chilled and ready for the real world again.

The hotel and grounds are very attractive, as was our room. The lack of ability to make a cup of hot tea or coffee was disappointing, as was the fact that, unlike most European hotels, breakfast is not included in the steep room price. In fact, it would have been 60 Euros more/day, which seemed absurd (we had great breakfasts daily at a small cafe in town for < 10 Euros). Because we spent much of our time on walks and hikes in the lovely country around Killarney, laundry service would have been nice - but again, when we checked the prices, they were just crazy (we had an entire large load done and returned promptly in town for 1/10th the Killarney Park price). One expects to pay more for hotel services, but in our considerable travel experience, this place was unusually expensive for everything. We thus did not even inquire about dining there. So bottom line, a great place if you have deep pockets.

Thank you for taking the time to review The Killarney Park Hotel. We really appreciate all guest feedback that we receive.

I am happy to hear that you enjoyed your room and found the setting of the hotel pleasurable however I must try and address some of the issues that you have raised about the hotel.

We have Continental Breakfast and Full Irish Breakfast options that are priced between €14.00 - €18.00 per person, I am sorry to hear that this was not made clear to you during your stay and we will certainly address the issue here at the hotel. I am disappointed to hear that you were not pleased about the price of Laundry here at the hotel, we will certainly take your comments on board for review in the future regarding our laundry services.

I am delighted to hear that you enjoyed all that Killarney has to offer regarding walking and hiking trails, there is much to be explored in this town which certainly merits a second visit.

I hope that we will get an opportunity to welcome you back here again at The Killarney Park Hotel where you will have a more positive experience during your next stay.

The Killarney Park is a great hotel for family travel. The staff was extremely welcoming and gracious, and the facilities and atmosphere are charming. The location is also great - right in town so that you can walk to the shops and restaurants. The park is also walking distance. We would definitely stay here again!

My Wife and I stayed here for 3 nights arriving 23rd March and were hugely impressed with the every aspect of the hotel. On arrival we were met at the door by an member of staff and escorted to the reception were we had a fast and pleasent check-in process before the receptionist (Aine) gave us a few pointers on where everything was and showed us to our room. My wife noticed that the controller for the air-conditioner was missing and when our bags were brought to the room she mentioned it to the staff member (Lucas). He went off to get a controller but returned to say the air conditioning was broken in that room, so we would recieve a complementary upgrade to a junior suite. This room was fantastic, spacious, nicely decorated, open gas fire etc. The facilities at the hotel were everything we needed, we made good use of the pool and sauna etc. Breakfast each morning was a treat with a great selection of very tasty food and the cooked breakfast served piping hot! The service at breakfast and in the bar was great with all members of staff pleasant and every request met with a positive reaction. The motto of this hotel seems to be "a warmth behind the smile" and we did truly feel that they acheived this! We will definetly stay here again if we are in the area and I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.

We just spent an absolutely wonderful 4 days at the beautiful Killarney Park Hotel. The rooms are large and have all the amenities you could want, but it is the amazing staff that puts this hotel at the top of my list. Aine, Norma and Denise at the front desk were always helpful when it came to any questions about hikes, shopping or restaurants. Patrick in the restaurant made sure our dinner was excellent along with pairing some great wines to accompany our dinner. Our picnic in the garden was one of the most memorable of the trip thanks to Billy setting up that wonderful table for us in the garden. I can't recommend this hotel highly enough!
