The Castlerosse Hotel is a comfortable, modern hotel and we really enjoyed our stay there. Our room was clean, cosy and had plenty of space. Tea and coffee making facilities were also available. The bathroom was also quite spacious, with a bath and a good shower.

Breakfast was buffet style and you could help yourself to a range of hot and cold items. It was really delicious! We also ate in the bar a few times and found the food there to be very tasty too. Plus, it always arrived very quickly!

One of the best things about this hotel is the views that it has over the lake and mountains surrounding Killarney. It's in a really gorgeous setting. There are also many walking/cycling trails that start at the hotel and go on for kilometres through the national park into Killarney town (2km away) and beyond into the countryside. These trails were perfect for going running in the mornings!

My one main criticism of the hotel would be the fact that while WiFi is available in the public spaces, there is no WiFi in the bedrooms, and it got a little annoying having to bring my laptop out to the lobby to check my emails.

Also, when we arrived to check in at 1pm, the receptionist was a little abrupt in telling us that check in would not be available until 2pm. I thought she could have been a little more pleasant about it or perhaps have offered to take our bags or suggested food in the bar or something while we waited.

Overall though, we really had a fantastic time at the Castlerosse and would definitely stay here again. The staff, and the manager in particular, were really very friendly in general and we had a lovely peaceful stay in a beautiful setting!

Room Tip: Rooms 201 to 220 are on the corridor opposite the reception if you don't want to walk far or neg...

We enjoyed 3 nights in a very comfortable lakeview room with good sized bathroom. Breakfast each morning in the dining room with such beautiful views was a pleasure with plenty to chose from. We had dinner on one evening which we enjoyed though was surprised that there was only a set 4 course menu offered - wouldn't normally chose to have four courses but would have been good to have been offered to chose off another menu. The staff in the dining room were very courteous though a bit slow in bringing tea/coffee at breakfast and at dinner - had to go and ask a waiter to bring these each time we were there. Same in the bar we wanted a snack at lunch time but left after around 15 min waiting to be served, certainly would need more than 2 waiters. None of this though would put us off returning as it didn't spoil our short stay at the Castlerosse in such a wonderful location.

Room Tip: Lake/mountain view.

We stayed in the Castlerosse hotel at the end of July for three nights. Our party consisted of a combination of three families with children of all ages, and of course Granny and Grandad. We all really enjoyed the break. The hotel was clean, staff were friendly, helpful, welcoming and efficient. We ate all our meals in the lovely restaurant where we could enjoy the view! At night we went to the bar which had live music each night, and the Castle Rangers entertained the children. Although the hotel was fully booked at the time the leisure facilities and pool never seemed to be over crowded. We loved the golf and the walks around the grounds. We will definitely be back!

This hotel is ideal for a relaxing break with kids. We stayed in one of the golf lodges which are lovely very spacious with 2 large en suite rooms, fully fitted kitchen and sitting & dining room overlooking the golf course. The kids had a ball with the playground, putting green, basketball court and swimming pool and of course the kids club. Breakfast is available in the hotel it was fine not a massive choice but good value at 6 euros per person. There are bikes available to rent from the hotel and a 2 km pathway for cycling or walking from the hotel. Killarney is a beautiful town to explore as is the ring of Kerry and this hotel is an ideal base for exploring Kerry.

Had a re-union dinner at this hotel in July and was a 5 course priced at 331.50. However it was an underwhelming experience. Beef Strogonoff was not as advertised, but a an insipid yellow sauce on a bed of rice and tasteless meat. French onion soup was a watery concoction, and the desserts did not redeem the poor meal. Would not recommend this dining experience.
