what has happened to this hotel?, i have stayed here many times before and NEVER have i experienced such unfriendly staff, rudeness and made to feel most unwelcome, i was made to feel like a was a burden to the staff. the food service was beyond a joke, i waited a good 20 mins for someone to come and take my order, once the order was taken, i think they must have forgotten me because my food took nearly an hour to arrive, and not one of the staff came over to explain why it was taking so long ,when it did arrive it was nothing special and wasnt very hot, when i mentioned this to the waiter all he said was " we are busy " and walked away, the room was ok though could have done with a good clean not up to its usual standard, well after this i will Not be returning and will NOT be recommending this hotel again. where have all the old staff gone , bring them back and get rid of the ones that are there now, because they clearly DO NOT know what they are doing or what they are supposed to be doing they all need to go on training lessons.

Me and my wife come to celebrate my birthday and I have to say this is the best place in Killarney, the service and food was amazing.
We were grated with a friendly and natural smile by the very charming restaurant manager (Peter) who explained the menu and helped us with the wine list. The meal was fantastic and we were surprised when we received a special chocolate dessert.
The staff were very attentive and the simply things pouring my wine for me was an example of the attention to detail.
We really were made to feel special ! Thank you !!!!

Stayed here last week for 2 nights with my partner and we really enjoyed our stay.
We arrived to the hotel where we were greeted by a very friendly young Irish receptionist. Our room was very clean and modern and the decor was very nice, I think perhaps the room may have been recently renovated.
The carpark is small and can only cater for a small number of cars, the entrance to it is very narrow, however this did not pose a problem for us but I can see how it would for other people especially if you are driving a 4x4 or Jeep.
We did not avail of the restaurant facilities but the bar downstairs had live music each night which was very enjoyable. It seems to be a popular spot in Killarney.
Overall we had a very enjoyable stay, the staff were very attentive and welcoming and we do hope to return here again.

From my first phone call from the U.S. to Patrick of the hotel, it was a great experience to plan this party which was very important to our group. The manager, Peter, that night was very accommodating as was the friendly bar staff. A great experience overall. Our group did not stay here, but just used the pub for our party.

I stayed in the Eviston for Easter Weekend with my partner and we had a wonderful time. We received a wonderful warm welcome on arrival and were given a lovely room with jacuzzi bath. The entertainment in the Dannymann Pub was fantastic . We had bar food on two nights and dined in the restaurant on the last night - delicious.

This hotel is fairly basic but it is situated right in the centre of Killarney town, (don't expect a view of the beautiful countryside) so it is great for all the hens and stags (bachelor and bachelorette parties for all you Americans) and groups of people in Killarney for the night life, as alot of the hotels are out towards the Muckross area and would be a taxi fare or a long walk from the nightclubs and bars. Killarney is a lovely town and there is always a buzz about the place. I didn't like the fact that the is no choice of breakfast, it's a full fry up or nothing, which is not practical for a vegatarian and it costs 10 Euros if it's not included in your room price. But yeah, everything else was OK. We asked for and got a free upgrade as there is an older and newer part in the hotel where the rooms are fresher.
