We stayed at the Killarney Oaks Hotel for a family wedding last weekend. The hotel did an amazing job with the wedding and we wanted for nothing. I always feel when I don’t have to think about where I’m staying then I’m in a good place. Unfortunately we had to check out on Sunday early to catch a flight at 9:20, but this didn’t stop them setting us a breakfast earlier than their normal breakfast time of 8am so we could be on our way in time. When we arrived back in England we had a phone call from the manager of the Hotel to say that they had found a large sum of money in our room on clean up. I had left approx £240 in the drawer and had forgotten about it due to the early start and an addled head. They proceeded to send the money by registered mail to our safe return. I don’t know of too many places/hotels where this would happen. And I have nothing but gratitude for this service and admiration at the way they run an impeccable business. Thanks Killarney Oaks Hotel for a wonderful time. We'll be back!

What can I say about Killarney Oaks Hotel - "Simply the best" I just cannot rate this hotel high enough.We attended a family wedding there at beginning of April 2013 and from the moment we checked in until we checked out were looked after so well. Nothing was any trouble for any member of staff. The food at the wedding reception was excellent, service of food to table was so prompt it almost scared me!! I would highly recommend anyone to stay in this hotel is they are making a visit to this part of Ireland, I certainly would like to come back. Thanks again to staff and management at this wonderful hotel.

After a busty week got away for a week end with my girlfriend after seeing a great offer from the hotel for 2 nights. Sounded a bit too good. The hotel lived up to a very good standard. Rooms were clean tidy and bed was very comfrotable. Would definatly stay again. had dinner in the bar on one of the nights the staff were frindly and made us laugh a number of time with their jokes and made us feel very comfortable. My girlfriend is very fussy with food but we both really enjoyed the meal we stayed a bit longer had a few drinks and went to the room. Breakfast was great to. Overall i believe for what we paid we will definatly return in a month or two just to get away to the great surrounding and great staff who made our stay very comfrortable and enjoyable. No complains.

Room Tip: Would recommed to all families and couples.

We stayed as a family, with two kids, and it wasn't our first visit. This place gets a hard time from some on tripadvisor and I just don't get it. It is perfect for a family break with the National Park adjacent, the walkway into the park is safe, the staff are very helpful and the food is great.
They even installed a lift since our last visit, which was a bug bearer with a buggy.
The hotel is great, relaxed and friendly with load of space, and plenty to do nearby.
There was a wedding taking place on one of the days that we were there that just added to the atmosphere.

Me and my husband recently stayed in the Killarney Oaks Hotel for a weekend. After travelling 3 and a half hours to get there, our check in was very quick and the receptionist was lovely. The rooms were spacious and very clean. The decor was great for a 3 star hotel, a lot nicer than what you would expect. We then went to the bar for something to eat. Even though it was busy and there was a wedding on, the service we receives was second to none. After a lovely meal, we stayed in the bar. The staff were very polite and talkative. We didn't know much about the area but Paul gave us some great info about what to do and see nearby. We spent 2 nights here and I am looking forward to returning. Great staff, a lovely atmosphere and fantastic food made our trip.
