We had a bit of trouble finding it but got there in the end. The twin room was large with nearly double sized beds, traditional/antique furniture and an elegant bathroom with twin sinks. We only stayed one night and left at 6.00am to catch a flight so didn't sample breakfast, although they did bring mum tea at 4.30 - accidentally an hour earlier than booked at 5.30! They'd also offered us an early breakfast or toast but we declined. We had planned to have an afternoon snack in the bar but the lobby/restaurant was packed for some kind of local event with lots of children and families.

We enquired about about the advertised pool/wet spa facilities at a nearby location and were provided with passes for the Tower hotel where we found a pool, gym, sauna/steam/jacuzzi and staff were helpful and welcoming.

After viewing this hotels website I booked a double superior room. What I received was not what was represented on the site. Two twins instead of a king with dated furniture. I was told there were no other rooms available. The airconditioning didn't work. The old fashion key locks were difficult to operate and at one point the door "magically" opened by itself. The bathroom was spacious but when I requested an extra towel I was brought one that had greasy black streaks on it. The hotel was suppose to have wifi but it didn't work in the room.
The one shining note in this hotel is the food. The dinner was the best food we had in Ireland - perfectly prepared and attractively presented. We did not have a chance to try their tea served in the front room but if it was half as good as the dinner it would be worth a try. They also have a breakfast offering in the front room that is a cheaper alternative to the full breakfast in the dining room.

I stayed in the royal for three days in the start of June 09. I was visiting some friends in the area, and I must say nice to see a traditional hotel is keeping standards still in 09. A small hotel in the centre of town with local staff who are glad to help. A wonderful crew is the best way to describe them all. We were in a room overlooking the side of the hotel, nice large room with aircon, which i thought we would never need, but the weather was great the days we were there. Double sinks in the bathroom, with a sweet on our pilow every night and ice and water evert evening.

Bar food was great served till 9 every evening, car parking for €3.00, which they will give back to you on departure, breakfast hugh selection, even with pancakes .

What a neat, comfortable old hotel!
Killarney, Ireland’s Killarney Royal Hotel is like taking a step into a past age, a good step, a good age. Our three nights in the Killarney Royal were a treat. We found the staff especially attentive and helpful. The night we arrived, we were late and rain drenched, the dining room was closed, and the hotel’s pub had stopped serving food. But, someway, somehow, the receptionist found a way to provide us with food and drink. Although I’m not certain, I suspect that she went into the kitchen and persuaded someone (perhaps, even it was her) to prepare for my dear wife and me hot sandwiches and salads. The young man behind the bar was cleaning up, but he took the time to pull a Guinness for me and serve a cold Coca-Cola to my wife. The receptionist and the bartender acted as if they were sincerely concerned for our well-being and comfort. We were impressed and grateful.

The room to which we were assigned was large, beautifully appointed, and pleasant. Although the Killarney Royal Hotel is more than 100 years old and retains the air and charm of a 19th century establishment, the facilities and services are modern. For example, this is the one of three hotels in which we stayed during our two-week visit to Ireland that provided ample electrical outlets. We were able to charge batteries, use computers, and plug in other electrical devices without the swapping we normally experience in English, Scots, and Irish hotels. The room’s air-condition controls were digital, and the wide-screen television was “state-of-the-art.” The wireless connection for our computers proved reliable and fast. All the modern amenities in facilities that seemed Victorian.

We especially appreciated finding ice and water in our room each night of our visit, and the spotless, large bathroom was a treat. The hotel is small. The dinning room is intimate. The hotel’s pub is of medium size, and the very pleasantly appointed entry parlor is cozy. A peat fire was kept going in the grate during our several day visit.

The Killarney Royal is centrally located in the little town. The railroad station is but two blocks away. The central street of the community is an easy walk in the opposite direction from the station.

We especially enjoyed the nearby Flecks and the Bricin restaurants. A tour driver recommended Flecks as a place that “doesn’t look like much, but has excellent food.” We found the recommendation to be, as the Irish say, “right on.”

My wife discovered Bricin’s restaurant (just down High Street from Flecks) through Trip Advisor recommendations. We followed the advice and had a truly wonderful dinner. The Bricin lamb boxtey was wonderful, and my dear wife was especially complimentary of the Irish coffee.

We did discover to our amazement that only one of several Killarneians with whom we talked had heard of the old Bing Crosby song, “Christmas in Killarney.” We found that strange; but then the old song is a standard in the United States—apparently not so much so in Killarney, Ireland!

Our experience with the Killarney Royal Hotel was positive, very much so, and we have absolutely no hesitation in recommending it to anyone visiting Killarney. Our stay was a treat.

We stayed here as we had originated at their sister hotel in Cork, The Hayfield Manor (recommended). This was a far cry from their standards. The room was old and tired, nothing worked. Although the staff was nice and they greeted us with lovely scones, jam and tea, it still didn't make up for the old "dirty" feel. I wish we liked it, location is good. If you do stay negotiate the rate to about $80 euro a night, might be worth it. Older crowd for sure and they stop serving food early, with no room service.
