After a long day of driving my mother & I (on our first visit to Ireland) stumbled across the Riverside Hotel in Killarney & what a find it was! Our first impression on entering the hotel was the light & spacious lobby area which was spotlessly clean & tidy & very inviting. We were greeted at the desk by a most charming gentleman who was very friendly and helpful (which we were to discover was the case with all the staff we had dealings with during our brief stay). Our twin room was very spacious, well appointed, again spotlessly clean and very comfortable - just what we needed after sitting in the car all day! We dined that evening in the River Bistro and were very impressed by the quality of the meal served; good presentation, decent portion size & very tasty. The lass who waited on our table was very attentive & helpful, nothing was too much bother. Breakfast the next morning was, in a word, yum...plenty to choose from on the buffet (a selection of appetising dishes) & a cooked breakfast to order as well. All in all I would say a stay at the Riverside Hotel in Killarney is great value for money and I would most definitely stay there again.

Dear Guest,

Thank you so much for taking the time to provide your positive feedback regarding our hotel. Thank you for your positive comments about the “most charming gentleman”, it was actually myself although I must confess I had to think twice when I saw gentlemen as we mainly have female receptionists. Also thank you for your comments about our staff. They are a great group, all handpicked for their personality as well as their service.
I’m delighted you enjoyed your meal; we have recently taken on a new Head Chef and are constantly trying to improve the quality of both our menu and our service of it.
Hopefully you will come back again soon for another helping of the Riverside Hotel hospitality.

Warm Regards,

Chris

We went into the Holiday Inn to get a room but the lounge area was very grungy and chair arms were black and dirty plus seeing that we are dedicated HGI priority club members we decided to walk next door and see what the Riverside Hotel offered. I'm glad we did, the rooms were extreamly spacious and clean. The bed was very comfortable. Best off all the breakfast was to die for. Thomas the waiter was very very friendly, fast and knowledgeable. We would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: We got a quad room (1 double and 2 twins) for 105 euro total that included full breakfast off the me...

Dear Guest,

Thank you so much for taking the time to provide your positive feedback regarding our hotel. Thank you for your positive comments about Tomasz, he has only recently started working in the hotel and is proving himself to be a fantastic addition to the Riverside team and I know he will be delighted to know his efforts have not gone un noticed. I’m glad you enjoyed the breakfast, most important meal of the day so we want to ensure you get off to the right start. We hope to see you again soon.

Absolutely brilliant hotel, very clean, comfortable and incredibly pleasant experience. From check in to check out I thoroughly enjoyed this hotel. Every member of staff were very pleasant and friendly. They were always ready and available to help. The food in the restaurant was amazing, the choice, presentation and overall experience was fantastic. The food portions were very generous and the staff couldn't do enough to help. I love this hotel.

This hotel is fantastic and very affordable, very clean and comfortable. It is close enough to the town of Killarney to walk. I'll never stay anywhere else when visiting Killarney again.

We spend an overnight in Killarney due to a function we were attending. We could not say enough for the hotel. The staff were frendly and welcoming. The receptionist showed a real intererst in us and asked us the next day how the function went. Breakfast was great with lots of variety. Great comfortable chairs in reception with lovely open fire- very relaxing. We will be back.

Room Tip: Dare I say it but it is next to the Holiday Inn- very easy to find

We spent a wonderful weekend at the Riverside Hotel, Killarney, (29 people). The weekend was really enhanced by the reception and friendliness we were shown at the Riverside. The food in the Bar and especially the restaurant was excellent. Victoria and her staff, were brilliant. My compliments also to the excellent chef. We will definitely be back. JB
