Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 28, 2011

I went on a coach trip with my Mum and she'd heard some really bad reviews about the hotel but it was lovely! The food was delicious and the staff were brilliant. Our room was really clean and the beds were comfy...what else do you need? Apart from a good pint of Guinness of course!

Had a great few days, hotel was first class as was meals and accommodation. Staff couldn't have been more helpful in the bar or dining room. We did a coach trip and were able to see around the beautiful countryside. Many thanks to everyone.

The bar and dining room staff worked very hard,werepleasant and willing to go out of their way for you.The rooms were clean and a good size with a double and single bed with towels changed and tea /coffee stocked every day. The entertainment was ok but it's early in the season.Thanks to two Mikes,Jessica & brenda at the bar.

Stayed at the Earl of Desmond hotel for four nights last week and my wife and I both thoroughly enjoyed our time there.We went there on a bus trip with G.B. Tours and found the whole trip excellent value for money. The Desmond certainly reaches three star standard, the bedroom was quite large and roomy, the bathroom was fine and much bigger than some 4&5 star hotels we have visited. The bedroom furniture was a little dated but was quite sufficient for our needs. The dining room is large but the staff were all very efficient and the food although not a large choice of menuwas very nice.The Desmond is a fair way outside the town of Tralee and anyone with walking problems would not be able to walk into town. A taxi service is available. Overall an excellent choice to stay in and I would give a three star + to the hotel and staff.

I stayed at the hotel last week with five friends and every one of us thought it was excellent value, the we had a problem with one room, which was put right instantly, the food was good the service second to none, and exceptionally clean, I would certainly reccomend this hotel to anyone only as a short stay as it is quite a way out of Dublin.

It was with some trepidation I booked this hotel after reading quite a lot of negative reports about it, I am glad to say my experience was very good. The rooms were clean, the food was very good and the staff were extremely helpful.
