Riverside Hotel Killarney
Ranked #26 of 38 Hotels in Killarney
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 April 2012

Excellent hotel small compact and neat , large lobby for relaxing, food top standard in both in bar and restaurant and a great choice.
Staff at reception (Danielle) at check-in were very friendly and helpful and then the Manager Oonagh was of utmost most professional assistance especially when we made a booking error and booked doubles instead of twins but she was more than helpful to assist and accommodate. Would and have already recommended hotel to friends and family.

Room Tip: Ensure when booking if two travelling that you state you want a twin room ie double with two beds

I've just returned from the Riverside Hotel Killarney and cannot rate it highly enough.The hotel is ideally located for exploring Killarney town,its national park and Muckross.You're also within walking distance of the INEC.The hotel itself is spotless-the rooms are comfortable and a big plus is,while they have the standard hairdryers in the room,you can get a salon-grade one at reception.The food is excellent-great choice-and they give you a pot of coffee instead of a measly cup!They also give you a complimentary coffee in the bar when you arrive-a nice touch and it's lovely coffee too!I've stayed in this hotel many times before and keep returning because the staff are second to none-apart from the fact that I love the lilting Kerry accent they have that essential ingredient-they smile!Nothing is ever too much trouble-I requested a room change,it was done.I asked for directions to Miss Courtney's Tea Rooms and was given a map with the location.I had the misfortune to get a puncture and Gearoid,the manager,changed the wheel for me.I've never had service like that before and will definitely be back again!

We stayed in the Riverside Hotel for two nights. On arrival, we discovered that we had mistakenly booked a twin room instead of a double room. The manager was really helpful and even gave us another room with a king size bed free of charge. Excellent service and location. Would recommend this hotel to anybody and looking forward to returning!

Siobhan from the reception gave us an excellent map to find carrantuo hill.It was a great trip. At he hotel, there was great service.Everybody (waitresses, room-service, reception) was nice. We had very goodr ooms and breakfast. Killarney is a very nice place. Food is delicious and cheap at "Quinlan's" (sea-food). Muckross Abbey and Muckross House, about 1 km along the road, are worth a visit, especially the park around the house..................................................................

Had a lovely3 ngt midweek break in this hotel. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Rooms were large and beds very cosy. Food was very tasty.I did think 6euro for a toasted sandwich was a bit dear though. Hotel is a 10min walk from town where there are plenty of bars and restaurants.Muskross House a 5 min drive away was a great old house to visit with a guided tour costing 7euro p.p. We drove to Kenmare 35km away lovely little town and there was a farmers market on which was an added bonus. All in all we had a great stay in Killarney and a very comfortable stay in The Riverside Hotel. We will be back.

Why pick this hotel? In my opinion, Killarney is a nice tourist town but let's face it, if you can walk for ten minutes or afford a taxi, who wants to be stuck in a town when one of the nicest natural parks in Ireland is literally right outside your door at the Riverside hotel? You can walk or cycle from here to some of the world's most beautiful scenery and return to a quiet clean top class hotel with excellent food, drink and service. We were in several of the local places nearby with friends and this is definitely at the top end of the market, but with affordable hotel pricing. There are no tacky gimmicks like leisure centers, kids entertainment or concerts with washed up pop stars. This is a top class hotel with the nicest staff on the planet. I spent a few hours working from the laptop in the lobby before I left and witnessed dozens of arrivals and departures. Everyone was 100% happy. Friends report that there are other great hotels in killarney but for me, this was just perfect.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the front on the 3rd floor.

Had a lovely overnight stay here. Had intended staying for three nights but unfortunately, due to family circumstances, we had to return home early. Staff were friendly and obliging and first impressions of the lobby area is wow! We felt very welcome and our room was lovely. We had bar food after arrival and it was delicious. The hotel is easy to find and within walking distance of townwhich is good. We would have loved to stay for some more pampering but will definitely return another time. Thank you to all in the hotel for looking after us.
