So glad we stayed at the Royal. Great value for the price, the Royal combines old world charm with all the modern amenities. The rooms were spacious, the restaurant was fabulous (best food we had in Ireland), and the staff was so friendly and helpful. They assisted us with booking several day trips and always followed up to make sure we were comfortable and enjoying our visit. We stayed several days and had a wonderful time, would definitely stay there again.

In this prime tourist place I almost expected an unfriendly, rip-off attitude - but was pleasantly surprised. The place is not cheap, but you are getting something for your money; best of all the staff is helpful like in the 'good olde days'(?); apparently this is one of very few hotels which does not save on staffing levels.
This made for a pleasant stay even though the rain didn't stop for 3 days...

We booked a three night stay that included breakfast each day and dinner two nights. Our room was spacious with a large bathroom, living room w/TV and bedroom w/TV. The bed was one of the best we had during our 9 day stay in Ireland. Check in/out was a breeze. We thoroughly enjoyed all our meals at the restaurant. The wait staff gave us great recommendations for our stay in Killarney. When we told them we were doing the Ring of Kerry they suggested a bus tour that would pick us up at the hotel so that we both could enjoy the sights and not worry about the driving on the left side of the road. Excellent advice and it was very reasonable - we would have paid more for gas than we did for the tour.

I loved the breakfast in the morning - they had a great selection. Both our dinners were also very good. We would definitely stay there again.

We stayed here for a weekend on a 2 night package that included one dinner. The staff are lovely, very personable and we had a lovely weekend! The only downside was that we were charged for our inclusive dinner on checkout. Once we pointed this out to the recptionist she rectified the issue but I felt like I was haggling in front of a queue. This is only a small thing after a lovely weekend!

We stayed here for three nights. The room was very large and clean. The hotel breakfast was great but not so impressed with the dinner. Staff was welcoming and helpful. Would definately stay here again!
