“Large Hotel with Local Charm”
Reviewed 3 October 2013

We loved staying here. We spent three nights and were very pleased with the staff, the room and the food. It was walking distance from the town and it was a lovely walk. The town is filled with shopping, restaurants and pubs. Killarney National Park is also within walking distance. Everything exceded our expectations.

We stayed here while attending a wedding at another venue, the hotel was clean and comfortable, the staff were very helpful. Also, we were not put under pressure to vacate the room in the morning, which was much appreciated after having been at a wedding the previous day.

We stayed for 3 nights at this lovely hotel just outside of killarney for a special wedding anniversary .. I found it on the internet and was not dissappointed as it lived up to all expectations.. Breakfasts were amazing everything you could want from fresh fruit to full irish & lots of fish. Evening meals were so good we ate there every night . Very relaxing and the atmosphere all around lovely with the staff so friendly and accommadating at all times. Fantastic sights nearby. Will definitely return again a lovely location to have a break away.

The staff might be the best thing about the hotel. They're friendly and fun to chat with about things to do and where to go. The hotel itself is showing a little age it seems, and a little wear and tear. It's not in bad shape by any means, but compared to other hotels it's not quite up to the same standards. The location is about a 10 minute walk from downtown Killarney, which is where you'd rather be. My recommendation would be to find someplace closer to downtown. Not a bad hotel, but...

We enjoyed four days in the Riverside Hotel this week and we were delighted with the warm welcome we received. Some staff merit a special thank you for making our visit to Killarney so memorable. Muireann at Reception was always so pleasant and helpful and created an excellent first impression - so very important . Victoria was a great addition in the dining room and bar and was ably assisted by the ever courteous Christy . He epitomises all that is best in Irish hospitality. We miss him!
Breakfasts were very good and dinners were so good that we dined in the Riverside every night even though I had a list of tempting restaurants in the town of a Killarney. Try the tempura prawns and the chocolate pudding!
Our room was large and very comfortable with a six foot bed and crisp linen plus a spacious bathroom were all that you could ask for. We had a room facing the road but were not aware of noise unless you would find the clip clop of the horses' hooves a distraction. I found it very restful and pleasing.
Fee Wifi was an added bonus although having to renew the code every 12 hours might seem tedious to some! It's true you can't please everybody all the time but I think some of the negative comments from other reviewers were just unwarranted.

We stayed one night here. The rooms are dated. I was surprised by this. Staff Are nice.
Location wise your a bit out from the town and we would probably rather stay somewhere more central if visiting again. Not particularly pushed on this hotel though

My wife and I stayed 4 nights. The room was good and clean but the furniture was a bit worse for wear and you could any one from the corridor from the room (although I couldn't hear noise from the adjacent rooms). The staff were pleasant and attentive. The food was acceptable but it didn't stand out. We ere on a deal so we got a restricted menu which was almost the same every night. The quality seemd to depend on which chef was on that night. Some eveinings all the items were just about okay. Other evenigs they were all much better.

If you are going to Killarney for the scenery then its a good choice with good vaue if you get a deal. If you are going there to stay in a great hotel there are probably better options.

Room Tip: Get a room well away from the lifts
