“A quality family hotel with a great service.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2011

This hotel was a clean and had good looking reception on arrival. A grand looming staircase greets you to the rooms, very titantic ! , however there is a lift in the corridor to use to gain access. The staff were remarkably efficient and friendly.

The rooms are a good size and what you would expect. I initially attended the hotel for a family wedding which I must say from an Englishman the irish hospitality and presentation always blows me away. The care and attention this hotel made was nothing but A1.

The hotel has a bar and restaurant. The food here ,not just during a wedding but other dates I attended was excellent. Well served, presented and tasted fabulous. Recommended. Again the staff were chatty and nice.

The location is certainly walkable in to Killarney town to appreciate the local pubs and restaurants but also close to Muckross and surrounding places.


A very nice hotel and would certainly recommend if staying in Killarney or planning visiting the Co Kerry area.

Enjoy

We recently stayed at your hotel with Royal Irish Tours for three nights. During our day time touring we became aware of the Rose of Tralee fashion show taking place on Aug. 21st. This was of interest to me and my girlfriend but we didn't know how to make it happen. Upon our return to the hotel Stephen Carey, assisted to made it happen. He called to ensure we could get tickets, then private transportation to the event, and our safe return. As we had missed part of our evening meal, he even made us a midnight snack. This was all above and beyond, his duties. We salute him and the Dromhall Hotel management. Excellent ambassabor for Ireland, and much appreciated by us Canadian gals. " Go Raibh mile malth agat"

We had a family birthday celebration at the Dromhall and from my first call to the hotel they were fantastic, so helpful. Our meal was beautiful, enjoyed by every one at the party. I would highly recommend this hotel for any occasion, the staff could not have been more helpful.

This is a fine hotel though I probably would rate it as a very good 3 star rather than a 4 star.
Recently went on a 3 night B/B and one dinner package. The room was of a reasonable size and clean. There was tea and coffee making facility in the room. The bathroom was very clean but no toilet brush.
The breakfasts were very good with freshly cooked food and we also had no complaints with the dinner. We had bar food one evening which was very nice and reasonably priced. The service in the restaurant and bar was very efficient and friendly. We mentioned to one of the young local waitresses that we had come across some terrible stage Irish music the night before and she recommended that we go to Courtneys pub which was very good.
One small thing that I would recommend is that the night porter should serve late drinks in the bar rather than the lobby which lacked athmosphere.

Room Tip: We had a room to the front which was quiet and while facing a car sales garage had a part view of th...

The hotel is nicely located within 5 mins walk of the centre but far enough out to avoid some of the noise problems i've had at nights in other hotels in the centre.

Plenty of free parking, and a very impressive reception area. Rooms are nicely furnished and of a reasonable size. Staff are generally helpful and friendly, and the pub/bistro next door has much more atmosphere than your average hotel bar - and the food is decent in terms of quality and value.

Breakfast doesn't start until 8 - perhaps they might want to consider starting earlier? My colleague and i had to be on the road by 0730 (not exactly the early hours...) and told reception this but they didn't seem very interested. When we did leave - there was a queue of holidaymakers at the restaurant door who presumably then had a half hour wait?

My company gets a very good rate, so we'll be back.

Dear Moonchester,

I am delighted to learn that you were pleased with your stay at The Dromhall Hotel and you found your location and surroundings to your liking.

I am disappointed to learn that you were not informed that guests can order a continental breakfast to their room if they are leaving early in the morning. The restaurant is normally open for breakfast from 8.00am to 10am on the occasion we have groups staying in the hotel we open the restaurant at 7.30am.

I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you. I will arrange for refresher training for the front desk staff to ensure this does not happen again.


I will take this opportunity to thank you for your comments and for taking the time to give us your thoughts on the service, facilities and staff at The Dromhall Hotel.

I look forward to welcoming you back at The Dromhall Hotel in the not too distant future.

Bernadette Randles

My dad and I went to a family reunion at the Dromhall and stayed there for 9 days. The service was amazing. They went out of their way to be helpful and friendly. While there we attended two different banquets and they were wonderful. The staff was efficient and the food was excellent. We could not have asked for a better experience! The hotel is centrally located and has a beautiful pool and lots of nice sitting rooms/waiting areas. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Killarney. Thanks a million to all the staff at the Dromhall!
