During our bus tour around Ireland, we stayed two nights at the Killarney Oaks. This is great location for access to the Killarney National Park and to town. There is a trail just across the road from the hotel that will take you to either; turn left for the park or right for town. We never made the walk to town, as my wife and I prefer parks, but I reckon it is less than 2 miles.
As for the hotel, I thought it was very nice overall. Perhaps a bit on the plain side, but clean and comfortable. The lobby is large and open, so an inviting place to sit and relax. The pub in the hotel (just off the lobby) is the nicest of the commons areas and seemed to be newly updated. Fast and friendly service. We had dinner in the pub one night (just sat at the bar); the food was better than average and there is a very good selection on the menu. I tried the fajitas (well, this is southwest Ireland after all) and that was a good dish. We ate in the hotel restaurant once for dinner and each morning for breakfast. Good food each time.
Our room had a good amount of space and was well appointed. Nothing special, but still all we needed for the time we were there. Wifi is free; just get a code from the front desk. I found the signal to be weak in our room but found a good connection in the lobby.
Overall we enjoyed the Killarney Oaks. It covered all the basic needs and provided a good base for exploring the area. Again we spent most of our free time walking in the National Park. If I am fortunate enough to get to return to Killarney I will certainly consider staying at the Killarney Oaks.
