“Best hotel in Ireland!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

There are not too many hotels like this in the world. This is a family run place that is extremely friendly, modern, comfortable and located in a perfect spot in Killarney. From the moment we stepped in, we were very well taken care of. The front desk staff spent quite a bit of time talking to us about the things to do in town and in other cities. They were always willing to help and made sure we were happy with our stay. Our room was went beyond our expectations. It was extremely clean and very comfortable. We had a problem with our fireplace on arrival and it was taken care of promptly. There were no other issues with out stay. We loved this hotel and will definitely be back in the future.

By far one of the best hotels I've ever stayed in in all of Europe. Rooms are extremely spacious and clean. Bathrooms are large with plenty of space to move freely. We had a view of the beautiful cathedral next door. The room is fitted with central heat/air. We had no issues with outside noise, but that could be due to the location of our room. Free wifi and hair dryers in the room. Front desk staff was courteous and helpful. The hotel is centrally located, with shops and eateries just a short walk away. I would definitely stay here again.

Dear traveltrixie,

Thank you for your fantastic review. We are blown away that The Ross was one of your best hotels in Europe. Becasue we only have 29 bedrooms, they are all a great size with large bathrooms that all include a separate bath and shower. We feel its important to make as much space as possible for our guests even though we have a town centre location.

We hope to have you back to stay sometime soon.

Best wishes,

We stayed at 6 different hotels while in Ireland and The Ross was my favorite, yet it was the least expensive! The hotel was clean and we couldn't ask for a better location in Killarney as it was about a 2 minute walk to The Grand Killarney which had live Irish music (even on a week night)! We needed extra towels and they were at our door in about 2 minutes. We did some late night dining at the bar downstairs and the food and atmosphere were great! Parking and exercise facilities are available at their sister hotel just down the road.

My family of 6 really enjoyed our stay at the Ross. They were accommodating and gave us three rooms next to each other. The rooms and bathrooms were very spacious, clean, and bright. The location is great, plenty of restaurants and pubs within walking distance and easy access to the park, Gap of Dunloe, etc. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The only issue is the WiFi is pretty spotty but otherwise we would definitely return.

We absolutely loved our stay at the Ross.We had to check in early as we needed to change for a wedding & it was no problem at all. The staff were friendly & helpful from the minute we arrived. We stayed for 2nights & had dinner in the bar on the 2nd night & it was beautiful. The bed was so comfortable, a hotel that has king koil mattresses will always get my vote. I have stayed in Killarney on many occasions but I would not pass The Ross in the future, we will return to this gem.

Just back from a girls weekend in Killarney. This is my third stay in The Ross and it is my favourite hotel in Kilkarney. Stylish hotel with fabulous food and great staff. Great location in the centre of town.
