“really enjoyable lunch in lovely setting”

Had lunch in this hotel today, the reception area and bar are beautifully decorated for Christmas which added to the lovely relaxed atmosphere of this hotel. The food was really good and beautifully presented and the staff are efficient and helpful. Overall top marks to this hotel, everything was as it should be!

We booked a number of rooms for a group staying on 8th November, 2012. The reservation staff were very friendly and helpful. This attitude was the same throughout our stay from all the staff, including the bar-staff who very also very entertaining (I think they weren't expecting such a Thursday night, they described it as 'June-like'! Nothing was a problem to them.
I discovered 2 weeks later that I had lost a piece of jewellery and I knew I had taken it off in the Killarney Royal. I telephoned and dealt with a Maura, who investigated, phoned me back promptly to say she had found it, and arranged to send it to me by Registered post. She then emailed me with all the details to track the delivery.
Now that's what I call service. I will certainly stay there again when I'm back in Killarney. The only down-side of this hotel - the heat! - even switching off all radiators in the room helped somewhat but it was still quite hot. I would suggest they could turn the thermostat down a degree or two and save themselves some costs..............

I recently stayed at this hotel for two nights November 6th to 8th 2012. From the moment we checked in we were greeted with fantastic service. Our room was clean and spacious and the decor was nice throughout. The location in town is excellent with shops and restaurants all within very short walking distance. There is no onsite parking available but there is a overnight town pay parking lot available just up the street. The cost was only €3 for 24hours and the hotel will pick up the tab when you check out. I would have no problem recommending this hotel to friends and family as we were completely satisfied.

I had high hopes for this hotel, and I my expectations were exceeded. Beautiful traditional decor, with modern touches. The room was the largest we had on our entire Ireland-Scotland trip (and other guests said similar things). Nice sized bathroom too. This hotel has been in the proprietors family for about a 100 years, so they've spent their time perfecting it. The staff didn't initially see us when the taxi dropped us off, so we brought our bags in; but after that, they were always extremely helpful. Its a relatively small staff, so they cover everything from bell service to bar service, and do so very professionally and warmly. Excellent pub/restaurant on premises. Excellent breakfast set up. Concierge service helped us set up a tour to the Ring of Kerry. Easy walking distance to Killarney shops, churches and pubs. Close to train station (walking), and to outlet mall. We were sad to leave.

Stayed here last weekend, booked for two nights but stayed for a third, so that probably sums up what we thought of the hotel. Location was great, staff were really lovely especially Evelyn, decor beautiful. I loved our room. When Evelyn came the first night with the silver tea pot and the strainer, real tea, they just had me. That's what I mean about attention to detail. Breakfast fab. Dinner beautiful, presentation excellent, and lovely creamy rice for desert, now where do you get that anymore.
