We stayed in the riverside hotel in Killarney last weekend on a voucher weekend break- two nights b+b with an evening meal for 98euro pps. A great deal and to be honest for that price I didnt expect much but I have to admit I was very pleasently surprised with our stay. The Riverside is located on the Muckross Road out of Killarney (follow the signs for kenmare). It is esentially in the town with a 5 minute walk to the town centre/main street. The hotel has ample parking outside and finding a spot was never an issue. There are limited grounds surrounding the hotel (perhaps one of the only faults I can think off) but with Killarney National Park on the doorstep its hardly a problem!
On arrival the receptionist was very pleasent and friendly offering local information on Killarney if required. The foyer at front is modern, clean and cosy with an open fire. A lovely place to enjoy a pre or post dinner drink while relaxing on the couches or people watching!
The room was good with a large double bed (two mattresses pushed together). The bathroom was clean and bright with a good power and heat available from the shower (very welcome after a long hike!). We had a room overlooking the carpark and road and it was very quiet.
We ate an evening meal in the hotel on the Friday night (included in our rate). It seems there are often deals or set prices on offer as the menu is priced both a la carte and set with added supplements for more expensive choices. We had a drink in the bar before dinner (a locally brewed Irish cider) which we were able to add to our room bill. The food was very high quality with locally sourced ingredients. The service was of very high standard and everyone was very friendly. Our supplement for scallops was overlooked as the scallops we were served were not as big as ususal!!! a very nice gesture!
Breakfast is buffet style for cold foods (cereal, fruit, cold meats and cheeses and breads) and waiter service for cooked breakfast.
Overall it was a lovely weekend stay and I cannot fault this hotel. I would definately recomend to a friend!
