“Good location and lovely bar”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

I have really rated this hotel as very good based in the main on the location and also the bar both of which were excellent. The room itself was quite dated but comfortable enough and it must have taken us literally 5 minutes to get to the room walking down endless corridors! I think really its quite expensive for the quality of the room but I guess its the location you are paying for. Didn't eat in the hotel or bar so can't comment but looked to be nice from what I saw.

Very happy with our visit here. Better than a normal 3 star. Right in centre of town. Good breakfast. Good value. Clean rooms. Friendly staff. Comfortable beds. Clean bar toilets. Excellent, I mean EXCELLENT traditional musicians in the bar each night. Smoking room available for my elderly Dad. The only thing we didnt think was great was the early bird menu in the bar. It seemed to be a special menu (not discounted main menu) and the meal wasnt very hot. Would definitely visit again though and plan to do so in the winter with another couple.

Room Tip: Our room 228 was airy and quiet. My Dad felt his room 216 was a bit too hot even with windows open a...

Hotel room is typical of other hotels in the region. Small room but clean. Breakfast buffet in the morning provides typical Irish fare. Pub downstairs provides live music in the evenings and a fun atmosphere. Easy walking distance from shops, restaurants, pubs, tour pick-up sites, and late night clubs.

Room Tip: Bring your own wash cloths if you typically use them. This hotel, as like most in Ireland, do not pr...

Good solid hotel in a fantastic location. Right in the heart of Killarney. Plenty of Pubs and shops within walking distance.
We had a deluxe room with plenty of space for 3 adults. Room was clean and an excellent value.
The pub downstairs has good food and a great atmosphere. Breakfast is typical Irish fare. Very good.
Free parking behind the hotel if you happen to be driving. I would definitely recommend this hotel and certainly stay there again.

Beautiful scenary and very friendly people. We went on a trip around the ring of kerry were all the views where wonderful.The hotel we stayed in was clean and sufficient for what we needed,food was excellant full irish breakfast and 3 course evening meals. The jaunting carriage we went was lovely going around the national park,and our guide was hilarious with his irish wit.The pubs we called in were very friendly and welcoming,and the Guinness i tried for the first time was absolutely wonderful.

The room was comfortable. However, when we arrived it had not been cleaned. A call to the front desk and the was remedied immediatly. This was a comfortable room. Do not expect a 4 or 5 star because that is not what youare paying for. You are paying for location and convienience. We were very satisfied with the room and service we received.
