“Best stay in ireland”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2013

The hotel was excellent. The services is remarkable. Tony made us feel right at home. The staff was very accommodating to all of our requests. They set up tours for us and arranged reservations at our next stop. The breakfast is excellent and our waitresses were friendly. The bar is great and the food in the restaurant is exceptional. The rooms are spotless and well appointed. The best hotel we stayed in while in Ireland . Highly recommend it.

Moved here after a booking problem.

The people are vert accommidating. Rooms very nice. Good beds and pillows.

Great breakfast with some of the nicest fresh fruit and berries after a month on the road.

A little noisy in the front rooms on Saturday night, but would recommend.

Good Afternoon,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about McSweeney Arms Hotel. I was delighted that we were able to accommodate you and that you enjoyed your stay with us.

Our breakfast is pretty amazing alright, we pride ourselves on having fresh local produce.

With regards the noise I would agree Saturday in Killarney can be a bit like Bourbon Street!! Great fun if you are a part of it, not so much fun if you need to sleep. However, we do have rooms in the back which would be quieter. If you come back on a Saturday night I'll be sure to keep one of these rooms for you.

Thank you for staying with us.
Kind Regards
Kelly Ann McSweeney

Arrived in Killarney after a long days drive. Was a very nice spacious room, well priced, had a great shower, then was lucky enough to pop down stairs to their beautiful sports bar with plenty of beers on tap. Might I also add-the most flavoursome and tender steak in Ireland. Well done McSweeneys.

We arrived at around 7pm after a weekend in cork whilst en route to Antrim. The hotel suited our needs ideally, we had a friendly check in, a large room with lots of windows and fresh air and a large bed. Town is only a 5-10 minute stroll away, so we had a mooch and got a salad in town, although the food in the restaurant looked good. We then had breakfast which was very nicely cooked, good sausages and set off on our way. In my haste I managed to leave behind my jacket, which the hotel promptly posted out for me. So all in all, a good stay.

Stumbled upon this place after completing Ring of Kerry. Great location in the heart of the village. Very reasonable rate which included full breakfast. Above a bar/restaurant run by the same family with a good menu and friendly staff. Room (and bathroom) was very sizable as we travelled with our 2 children. Very pleased with our stay.

My boyfriend and I arrived in Killarney earlier than originally planned and without a reservation....(not a smart idea!) But Kelly-Ann greeted us with the warmest welcome and set us up in an amazing room with great views of the town! She could not have been nicer and immediately made us feel at home. Our room, 305, was perfect! Bed, pillows, duvet were so fabulously comfortable it was the first time in our 2 week travels we truly felt like we were sleeping at home! Breakfast the next day was perfect, a full irish and tons more to choose from!. All in all, Kelly Ann and everyone at the McSweeney Arms made a lasting impression on us, we wont stay anywhere else on our yearly trip to Killarney. Thanks!!!
