Stayed at Killarney Towers on a coach trip. Initial impressions were of a small lobby, narrowing too much for comfort, to a lift of limited proportions. Room was well equipped, although a bit on the small size, and overlooking vent fans etc. The place was clean, and the toiletries were good quality. Linen was crisp and white, towels were fluffy and of a reasonable size. The bath had an inbuilt jacuzzi which was great for aching muscles, as well as a fun experience. The bed was comfortable, with no lumps or bumps in the mattress. The location was ideal, being right in the centre of the town. There was a festival going on for three days when I visited, which meant you could get involved without having to trek miles back to your accommodation. The food for breakfast and dinner was on a buffet basis: the choice was wide, and the quality very good. The desserts were especially nice, but then I have a sweet tooth. The bar, just before the dining room, was a bit too dark and gloomy to feel comfortable, but the beers were well kept and not too pricey.
All the staff were exceptionally friendly and, despite being there for only a couple of nights, we were treated like long standing guests or friends. Dining room staff were really pleasant and chirpy to a man/woman, as well as being on the ball in clearing tables and serving drinks.
The pool was good, despite being a little on the small size. The Irish requirement for a swimming cap came as a surprise but the room's shower cap came in handy for a change.
The Killarney national park is just across the road from the hotel, and so is handy for those who wish to take a stroll. I was told that car parking is not available at the hotel, but there is plenty of space in the car park across the road.
I'd certainly go back and have a Guinness there if I return to Killarney.
