Stayed here for 2 night mid-week break with dinner on a tour of ireland. Nicest hotel by far out of 6. Decor very modern, lovely lounge, bar and restaurant. Rooms good size and again decor lovely. Staff very friendly and efficient. Food in restaurant was really good and we enjoyed our meal there. Also ate in bar, again food really good and bar staff very helful. would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Killarney. Great location, though a bit difficult to unload your luggage. No parking at hotel although parking availabe at sister hotel just across the road.

Arrived after long drive & longer traffic jams to this gem. We just loved the decor,so fresh & vital and the smallest details attended to,another reviewer says 'blown away' & that describes our reaction too. Stayed in the suite,tempting us not to move out the door! Terrific location & as leisure facilities across the road were available to us,we checked these out and you can be assured of same high standard.
The food...well we're real foodies and actually did something we NEVER do,we ate there both nights! Delicious! I can still taste the chillie & mango(fresh) dressing that came with my lovely salmon!
Kerry hospitality at its best from all the staff. Your loss if you stay elsewhere!

We are just back from a brillant stay at The Ross. Phoned last minute for the busy august weekend and the receptionist could not have been more helpful in accommodating us. We got a great deal with drinks and an evening meal included. I love this hotel, its small, intimate with a great atmosphere. The both memebers of staff that we meet at reception were great, lovely welcome and very helpful when we were looking for ideas to spend the weekend. They even looked up various events that were on and phoned our room with the details, they really could not have done anymore for us. The bar & restaurant staff were extremely friendly and helpful, very nice relaxed atmosphere. Our room was lovely, super comfie bed and our lucky friends were treated to an upgrade to one of their lovely suites. I would definately stay here again, super hotel right in the middle of Killarney, I thought the staff were great, food was super and their cocktails are a great way to start any weekend break! One of the best hotels in Killarney without a doubt if your looking for something a little bit more personal, right in the middle of everything but nice and relaxing this is the place to stay.

Not a bad place all in all. beautiful decor through out finished to a high standard. rooms very impressive. check-in was poor the receptionist needs to learn some customer service skills. wasnt greeted with "welcome to the ross hotel" was greeted with "yes" had to ask for breakfast times and how to get the the rooms etc which i found dissapointing. there was an older lady receptionist who we came across later in our stay who was far more professional and customer focased. hotel staff should allways be ready to go the extra mile and unfortualtly i didnt feel this was the case

Breakfast was yummy, rooms were lovely, location was prime. What more can I say? The staff was helpful when we had questions. The decor was really great. Not a complaint to be had!

Funky hotel situated in the heart of Kilarney, just a light stroll from the restaurants, pubs, shops and amenities. Great ambience in the hotel, created by the cool décor, helpful local staff, popular bar and yummy restaurant! We ate in the Cellar One restaurant in the hotel, which was top class, highly recommended!!!

Great service at a reasonable price, which is hard to beat in these cost cutting times!

Try it out!
