“Excellent access to Killarney National Park”
Reviewed 5 September 2013

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.

We stayed 3 nights mid week at the Oaks. It was very enjoyable. The hotel is quiet and very clean. The staff are nice, helpful and friendly. The races were on while we were there but have stayed previously for a wedding and found it very good.

Room Tip: Any room is good here.

I didn't stay here but I often call for bar food. They do a very good trade. I have never been disappointed. The staff are very friendly and the hotel is spotless. Food is always piping hot and the portion sizes are large enough to fill you up.

My partner and I stayed here last weekend and found the hotel to be extremely noisy.
Unfortunately there had been a function on this same weekend in the hotel for which there had been people running up and down outside our hotel door and screaming outside - we were kept awake until around half five!!!
Nice rooms though, location was great and breakfast was brilliant!! Probably wouldn't stay again though unless I called in advance and made sure there was no function on that same weekend - would advise others to do so aswell to be guaranteed sleep!

Dear 12monty,

Thank you for your recent review of The Killarney Oaks Hotel. I am disappointed to hear that your nights sleep was interrupted during your stay. We strive to make each guests stay a pleasant one. As Killarney's premier wedding venue we always try to ensure that guests who are not attending a wedding here are not disrupted in any way, which is why our night staff make regular patrols of the hotel to ensure that our late night patrons do not disturb other guests.
I am glad to hear that you were able to enjoy our fantastic buffet style breakfast and that the accommodation and majestic surroundings were to your liking.
I would be delighted to welcome you back to The Killarney Oaks Hotel in the future for a pleasant and restful stay.

Kind Regards,
Richard Halpin

My husband and I stayed in this hotel last weekend and we would highly recommend this hotel to family and friends. From the entrance to the rooms they are both very spacious and spotless. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The beds are also quiet comfortable. We have dinnear that night in the bar and have to say great selection on the menu and we have a beautiful meal which we thought was quiet reasonable.
Will definately stay in the Killarney Oaks again.
