“Good location ok dated hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2014

This was another stop on a Globus tour in a prime Ireland tourist location near the Ring of Kerry and the beautiful National Park. The staff was courteous, nice and helpful. The rooms are furnished with traditional furniture, clean and nice. The restaurant lacked good food and service. They seemed surprised we were a group of 45 on a tour bus, but we eventually got some food. The bar was reasonable and the bar tender was very nice. Group breakfast was adequate. The town is quaint and interesting.

Room Tip: The rooms are what they are -- furnished with traditional furnishings with lots of red. Ask for a r...

My wife and I stayed for 4 nights Monday to Thursday. The staff are amazing especially Chris on reception, thanks you for all your help during the floods, I knew it rained in Ireland but this was just crazy!! We had a great time dancing to Irish music in the grand and amazing pints of Guinness in front of the fire in Courneys Bar, all recommended by Chris, Amazing night with amazing people, Thank you!

Our room was beautiful and warm, spacious and impeccably clean!! Breakfast was amazing and set us up for the day, we only ate bar for there in the evening so I cant tell you about the restaurant but the Fish & Chips we had was very satisfying and the curry was my favorite meal of our trip!

Thank so much for everything, we will be back again in the summer as promised to do the Ring of Kerry as we were unable to do so this time due to flooded roads!

Thanks Chris and Victoria for everything!!

The riverside hotel killarney is a lovely place to stay! The staff were so welcoming and very helpful! Maribel on reception really helped us. It's close to all the attractions in the area! If we were going again we'd def book the riverside again! Thanks for everything :)

My wife and I stayed for 5 nights, early January,
This is not our first time staying at the Riverside and on arrival is was its usual warm, homely ,welcoming place.
The foyer is so inviting with its beautiful fire burning brightly,
We had a nice large comfortable room,
In the bar the food was very good and the bar staff extremely polite, friendly and helpful.
Breakfast was lovely each day , plenty of choice and the cooked breakfast served really hot and fresh,
Overall this is a very relaxing Hotel, the staff are very approachable and nothing seems to be too much trouble.
However , we couldn’t help noticing that the cleaning standard had dropped since our previous visit and a lot of
minor maintenance issues are left unattended to . it needs a bit of an overhaul, possibly redecoration etc, to bring it back up to standard.
Would stay again....no problem.

I feel obliged to write this because I was treated so well at the Killarney Riverside. It was the perfect place to use as a base while touring around Kerry. All staff were courteous, attentive and discreet over our four night stay. Our room, which was perfect, was serviced no matter what unreasonable hour we decided to leave for the day. The restaurant and bar were inviting and friendly environments with good food and drink. All our needs were catered for efficiently and we felt at home and welcome during our stay. Thank you for a relaxing break.
