I was surprised to learn that the 180-room KTH ranked 24th of 39 Killarney hotels, yet it has an 81 percent TripAdvisor reviewer rating. My rating puts it closer to 100 percent! A tour company had booked rooms for our 40-member group, and I had expected a Munchkin-sized bathroom and tiny bedroom. This is not the case. Room 138 (on the second floor) is spacious, and rivals the quality of Hilton or Intercontinental. The oversized bathroom has a long Jacuzzi soaker tub and green marble sink counter. A bay window provides extra light and floor space in the already adequate sized room. Sleep quality is excellent, as the bath separates the corridor from the bedroom, but I found that KTH’s guests whisper when walking through the corridors, and room 138 is at the hallway end. The only negative is the single size beds are a little short for those of us well over six feet tall, making for toes dangling over the foot of the bed. There’s ceiling crown molding throughout the hotel’s corridors and common areas.
I learned from general manager Norma Taylor that up to fifty tour groups stay at KTH each week. Since our group was on the go during our short stay, I didn’t have time to explore the fitness center or pool, but I made time for the phenomenal buffet meals. The exceptionally friendly restaurant staff cater to every need. The salad bar had more than enough selections to make an entire meal, but I couldn’t pass up the lamb roast or stuffed salmon. There were even potatoes! Each breakfast buffet with displays kept freshly stocked was a gastronomical delight. The cheese selections include brie and Gouda, and gratefully none of the American plastic-wrapped stuff that doesn’t deserve to be called cheese. And there are pastries, rich dark breads, baked tomatoes, true home fries (or the Irish equivalent), and smiling servers keep coffee cups filled. For me, Killarney Towers Hotel is the only choice when staying in this pleasant village.
