we stayed overnight in killarney and stayed in this hotel. it is just on the edge of the town about a 5 minute walk. the staff at this hotel are very pleasent and helpfull. we had the evening meal with a wide range of fish ,meat and chicken dishes on the menu. there was 8 of us at the table (family) and no one had a bad word to say about their food. the rooms at the killarney royal are at a very high class ,very clean and lots of space. a great idea that the royal have come up with is there is a putter a golf ball and a putting machine in all bedrooms ,who ever came up with that idea should get a medal, (something for the man to do while herself is in the bathroom putting on the makeup)... great staff,great hotel and great food.. will be going back this summer.... also may i add the cost for bed and breakfast with evening meal was only 129 EURO for 2... great value

I recently purchased a voucher on Living social which specified availability on all 7 nights of the week. On my attempt to book I was informed that the hotel had reached their quota for Saturday nights and refused to take my booking. After numerous attempts to explain the validity of my voucher for any night it was suggested that I look for a refund as they would not take my booking.
Very poor organisation and customer service. I'm sure I am not the only person who has run into this problem.

Dear Noel-Emma,

I was very disappointed to read your review. It is very unfortunate that you were unable to avail of this exceptional offer as it sold-out very quickly, and unfortunately the remaining dates were not suitable to you.
The Killarney Royal do offer some very competitive rates throughout the year, hopefully you will get an opportunity to avail of them and visit Killarney in the future.

Brian

This year we decided to send my parents for a 2 day treat to Killarney during their Christmas Break. We choose the Royal Hotel and trilled that we did!
They had a wonderful stay and had the up most praise for the hotel and Staff
Their favourite part was to sit in the lobby reading the papers and relaxing with a coffee!
They are planning a revisit already to the Royal!
Thank you to the Royal Hotel Staff for making my parents well deserved break such a pleasure!

We spent New Year in The Killarney Royal with family friends. We had a fabulous weekend. Old world charm. The accommodation was great and the staff could not have been any nicer. We even had a Christmas tree in our room and decorations on the door. Afternoon teas a special treat beside the big open turf fire. It was a magical weekend in Killarney and we liked it so much we are going back again in Feb. Plenty of shopping and restaurants within walking distance of hotel. Well done to all in the Killarney Royal we felt like part of their family.

Room Tip: Try and book a suite - well worth it.
