My wife & I have just returned from a weeks holiday at The Old Weir Lodge in Killarney.
We booked our stay here based on the many Trip Advisor reviews that we had read and we can honestly say that our stay here surpassed our expectations.
We would particularly like to thank the owners Maureen and Dermot, their son Niall, Aileen (front desk) and Eileen (our waitress for most of our stay) in fact all of the staff were excellent. We were greeted every morning and on our return to the hotel each day with a cheery smile and throughout our stay we felt totally relaxed and at home. In our view this has to be one of the best of the smaller hotels, if not THE best hotel we have ever stayed in, The hotel offers very clean and tidy spacious bedrooms, well decorated and maintained community areas, good quality and choice on the breakfast menu and by far the most polite and friendly staff we have ever met. Our hats go off to Maureen and Dermot, because their management skills and technics are replicated by all of their staff.
The hotel is perfectly located and is just a five or six minutes level stroll into Killarney town centre. and Killarney itself is an ideal base for touring Killarney National Park, The Ring of Kerry, The Dingle Peninsula and much more.
Our bedroom was at the front of the hotel and was extremely large, very clean and nicely decorated and it is great that the hotel provides two lounges for their guests to sit and relax in after a day out enjoying the beautiful countryside.
This hotel is well worth its 4 Star Irish Tourist Board and 5 Diamond Rating from the AA and is excellent value for money. We have stayed in a variety of 4 Star (large and small)hotels and guesthouses in the UK and abroad who charge a higher rate than The Old Weir Lodge but offer much smaller bedrooms and very little, if any, guest lounge facilities.
Whatever you are coming to Ireland to see and do, Killarney has everything to offer the first time visitor. There is an abundance of level tracks for you to walk or cycle through Killarney National Park, or why not treat yourself to a Jaunty cart ride, of which there are many to choose from around, the town, the lakes and through the mountains (Gap of Dunloe). The scenery in and around Killarney is breathtaking, but don’t just take our word for it, ask Maureen, Dermot and their team - they love to help you to enjoy your stay here.
We have friends and relations who are looking to visit Ireland and we will have no hesitation in recommending the Old Weir Lodge to them.
