Our group of 55 people just love the delicious food and the great banter & crac that they have with all the staff. We have been going to this hotel for many years and like a good wine it is better it gets on every visit. As I said not alone is the food and service excellent the crac is mighty. While there visit Con's night club you will have a great night. If you are going back to Kerry you must call into the River Island Hotel and ask for Tom McCarthy he will look after you.

You would have to go a long way in most countries to beat this Hotel. The accommodation is immaculately clean, the hotel is bright and cheerful and the staff are fantastic, NOTHING is too much trouble. The meals are fantastic value.
Most people think that you need to stay in the 'tourist' resorts, like Killarney, Dingle etc but you don't. This hotel is an ideal base for seeing all the touristy areas without the extortionate prices but with all of the hospitality.

Forget staying in the 'tourist' areas and go to the River Island, you won't be disappointed1

Room Tip: The 2nd floor, is best

Stayed at this hotel last week when with a friend when were visiting Eire with a coach tour. cannot speak to highly of this hotel, Breakfast was excellent, plenty of variety and mounds of toast on the table and real butter,also tea and coffee which was refilled all the time . Dinner was three courses plus tea and coffee,and a different menu every night .. ( we stayed there 4 nights )Fresh vegetables served at the table , and jugs of ice cold water ,again replenished as we emptied them .The food was very good , and , the staff were first class , very helpful and friendly. This hotel is ideally situated for visiting Co Kerry, Loved the nooks and crannys where you could just sit and be quiet ,or, join people at the bar. In the evening downstairs is Con`s Bar for local entertainment which wa very nice ... Thankyou to all the hardworking staff at the Castleisland Hotel. Loved it and loved your country
