Victoria House Hotel
Ranked #8 of 38 Hotels in Killarney
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

Wonderful hotel. Great staff, from the reception to the bar to the cleaning staff, all took great care of my partner and I. The food was excellent, we were delighted we stayed at the hotel to eat. The location was spot on also, directly across the road is the Killarney national park which is worth a visit to see the lakes or 5 mins in a taxi and you're in the centre of town. There was a nice musical turn in the bar on Saturday night and a mixture of guests and locals which made for a nice atmosphere. Can't recommend this hotel highly enough. We look forward to returning very soon!!

The staff are all so helpful it makes staying there a pleasure . The food was good and reasonably
priced. My bed was comfortable, but I was disappointed a little with my room, it did not match pictures on website. Decor was a bit dated. Having said that I would be quite happy to stay there again.

If you want to "come home" this is the spot. Fabulous rooms, great food and very reasonable prices.
But above all else, the staff (Jessica, Teresa,Patricia and manager Sinead) made our 3 day stay the most wonderful part of our entire Irish holiday. In this charming spotlessly clean 37 room property you can enjoy a beverage in the comfortable bar or an upscale dinner in the dining room.
All the stars have aligned to make this place merit the Trip Advisor winner for 2013 and we agree wholeheartedly.

Room Tip: Splurge on a suite. It is well worth it.

Our journey to the very outskirts of Killarney, arrested by a tragic road fatality and diverted in a snaking of traffic winding along miles of unsigned country lanes, may have figuratively stopped us in our tracks, but it was the massed bands of motor cyclists found swarming all over the lengthily-reached town that certainly brought our anticipated holiday plans to a jolting halt. There for a Bike Fest, the owners of many a magnificent machine (think Harley Davison by the hundreds) had laid siege to this heavily commercialised, coach-overrun tourist centre and our arrival at the Victoria House Hotel found us at the heart of affairs with festival site just one hotel away and camp site immediately to our rear. We were, I believe understandably, put out and particularly so that the event had not been flagged when our booking was made, yet, but for the constant background growl and the sheer volume of people, our three-day stay proved to be largely unaffected. We were fortunate to be met by an understanding receptionist and were grateful for her reassurances, while her explanation that the policy of our internet booking site meaning that the hotel was not provided with contact details certainly deflected the shortcoming elsewhere (and one that the hotel surfer would do to remember). We enjoyed the benefit of a spacious and comfortable upgraded bedroom that was enhanced by a Jacuzzi bath, a pleasure-confirming extra that proved daily therapeutic. Not all service was as caring as our welcome might have suggested, but we found good humour at each day's delicious breakfast, made all the more agreeable following the thoroughly good night's sleep that we had scarcely anticipated being able to enjoy. Victoria House is a tight fit and is perhaps not as well appointed as it might be for the full house, but we certainly left feeling that it had largely lived up to its good reputation.

How many rooms have any of us stayed in that have a couch and chair in them? Not many for us...but this hotel has them. It's an easy to find, well decorated place with lots of framed art adorning the hallways. The only complaint is that wifi was available only in the lobby, not the rooms. Its pub offers a reasonably priced, tasty food. Kilkenny is a beautiful area..,,

We stayed at the Victoria House Hotel on the first night of a two night break in April as it was close to the INEC where we were at an event. It wasn't our first time staying here and it won't be our last.

The rooms are very comfortable, the staff friendly and helpful and the breakfast is very good.

Very good value for money.

I stayed here recently with my partner and a group of friends, all of us attending a function in the nearby Gleneagle Hotel.. delighted we stayed here, the staff could not have been more friendly and courteous from the moment we arrived. The rooms are very comfortable and modern. Also don't miss breakfast here, it's delicious, clean (non-greasy which is too common) and of very high quality. Will definitely stay here again.
