A comfortable hotel in a convenient location in Killarney. Room was very clean and bathroom modern. Breakfast was good with lots of options- in particular I enjoyed the vegetarian Full Irish. I stayed in a "single" room which felt cramped with both a full bed and a twin. I suggest making sure you know your room configuration when you book.

I came across a room only price on booking.com, so working in the hotel business I decided I'd ring the hotel direct, save them the commision. No way would the man on the phone even consider matching the price, and would only offer me a B&B rate. When we checked in the same man was there wearing no shoes! And...

Hotel and location are excellent! Close to shops and restaurants and a short drive to Killarney National Park and the Ring of Kerry. Rooms are well appointed and clean. Staff were so welcoming and helpful and really made the stay great. Breakfast which was included in our rate was delicious.

Absolutely wonderful! We were booked at a B&B for the night and when we got to the original place, it was horrid. Just the worst experience I've ever had. So we called here last minute and booked a room. When we showed up, the staff were super friendly and welcoming. Then when they heard about the horrible experience we just...

Beautiful hotel with friendly staff who were eager to help us check in and feel comfortable. The penthouse was spacious and inviting. The views of the mountains were breathtaking. I wish I had taken more pictures!

A great welcome. Very comfortable and ideally situated for anyone on foot - centre of town - within walking distance of all the main restaurants/shops /train station. Lovely breakfast - great choice. Very helpful at reception for advice on what to see or do for a day out in the Killarney area.

Nice hotel located in the center of Killarney. Inexpensive paid parking is available across the street. Our room was good size and very comfortable. Breakfast was very good. We stayed on a Saturday night so the price was pretty high but so were the other hotels in the area. We ended up coming back to Killarney for Sunday night and...

Arrived at this hotel & were impressed at how homey the people and hotel were. I got sick & the woman that ran the place was bringing tea to my room. Even made a doc appt for me. Felt like they really cared about the comfort of their guests. HIGHLY recommend.

The hotel is excellently located for a trip to Killarney. It's less than 5 minutes away from the train station, as well as the main street from where you can take coach tours to see the Ring of Kerry. It's also about 10 minutes away from Killarney house and gardens and the national park. I enjoyed the breakfast, which you...
