Reviewed 31 May 2014

We stayed at this hotel two years ago. We loved the boutique atmosphere and have to commend the restaurant breakfast maî·tre d'. His service was exceptional - quality professionalism from another era! Very rare these days.

The room was spacious, clean and modern, with a comfortable bed, although there was slight noise from a side street or neighbouring building. We loved the location of this hotel - easy walking distance into town. We thoroughly enjoyed the restaurant recommendation from staff. We would easily return.

Dear LoveToTravelOSeas,

What a great review from quite some time ago!

Thank you for taking the time to post a review of The Ross. We really do appreciate it.

Bart in the restaurant will be especially delighted with your comments!

It is good to know that in 2014, we have installed second windows in our bedrooms which has helped to eliminate street noise and this has worked a charm.

Thank you again.

Best wishes,

Ciara Treacy

My niece and I spent the last eight days traveling through Ireland and we stayed one night at The Ross while in Killarney. This hotel was just perfect. It was clean and comfortable. The beds were excellent, the food was amazing and the hotel staff went out of their way to be helpful. I wish we were able to stay more than one night. Killarney and The Ross were the highlights of our trip!

When we tried to book the Killarney Park Hotel (probably one of the best hotels in Ireland) it was fully booked so they offered to book us into their sister hotel across the road, the Ross. It is truly an excellent hotel. Nothing about it could be faulted. The staff were very helpful, the room was large and comfortable and the breakfast was one of the best I have had. The big sister across the road had better look to her laurels.

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.
