Stayed at this hotel last night...all I can say is that it is one amazing hotel and so very central to Killarney town. Everything you want is right on the doorstep. My 3 year old son wanted to stay there forever!! Was his first night away in a hotel and the Eviston made this this experience a memorable one for him. Staff here are very friendly, especially the girl on reception last night and this morning (didn't get her name) and the bar man was also as friendly and had a very warm personality. The receptionist also gave my son a balloon going away and he was delighted with it! The rooms are lovely and warm, beds comfortable and the breakfast was top class this morning. I love Killarney town and have spent weekends away in other hotels in the town...but think this will be my spot to stay from now on.

The customer service was excellent but lack of consistent hot water made this stay less than desirable. When this was mentioned to the front reception desk we were told that there was a problem with the boiler, no apologies were offered.

Stayed here at the weekend and the staff were lovely. Very friendly and helpful! The room was lovely and clean, and the bathroom was spotless. There was a great whirlpool bathtub and a great shower. Room was a bit cold during the night and the blankets were very thin. Overall a great stay... breakfast finished a bit early though!

Room Tip: If you don't want to walk too far to your room, ask for a room near the front of the hotel. Had...

The staff was incredibly friendly, great food, and the live local music was a bonus I. The pub downstairs. The bartenders Rico and Con were a hoot! Con gave my wife and I great ideas on places to visit on our stay! We will come back again!

This hotel was a gem to me and my new husband. Downstairs at the Danny Mann pub the live local music was just what we were looking for. The bar tenders Con and Rico made our nights in Killarney the most fun stop of our trip. We will be back :)

I cannot speak highly enough of this hotel. Myself and my mother visit Killarney several times a year and have stayed in various hotels but the Eviston hotel is the best we have stayed in. The rooms are very comfortable and spacious and the food in the danny mann pub is second to none (the duck confeit is a particular favourite). If I had to point out the best aspect of the hotel it would have to be the staff, in particular the Manager Johnny and waitress Maria. Johnny could not be more helpful and makes us feel like the most valuble customers in the world each time we come to visit. Maria has a fantastic bubbly personality and is excellent at her job.We feel like old friends to both when we come to visit and they would be one of the reasons among the rest stated why we keep on coming back. Great location, great food and great people well worth a visit.
