“Amazing staff and location”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

Location is close to the city center where all the restaurants and shops are but it's not in a noisy location as some hotels can be too close to the action. I had to see to find a doctor immediately and the front desk called a clinic that could take me on a Sunday. I was seen within a few hours. It was hard to believe we didn't waste our precious vacation time sitting in an emergency room for hours like you do in the US. I would definitely stay here again. The room was comfortable and the town was enchanting. Killarney is lovely!

Room Tip: Stay here is you like a 4 star experience and the charm of a B&B.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Riverside Hotel. All the staff were knowledgeable about the area and were very helpful and friendly no matter what time of day, especially Christy in the Bistro Bar.

We stayed in this hotel twice this summer, and both times it was excellent. Staff & management were excellent to us due to a double death in our family. All we can say is many thanks. Next year we will be back in the Riverside Hotel again

Stayed for two nights. Lovely room. Staff friendly. Had breakfast both mornings - a little disappointing for a four star hotel. Expected more variety. Would have loved fresh fruit but it was out of a tin. Otherwise a good experience and in a very central location.

This hotel is a joke. The furniture is old and falling apart. I pushed in one drawer in the desk and it fell out of the bottom. The carpet is old, worn and stained. The fact that it has a Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor blows my mind. If this is excellent, what isn't? Tours. They should be ashamed of themselves for using this hotel.I stayed at this hotel because it was part of a tour with Globus.

Room Tip: Don't stay here if you want anything close to high end

We were just doing bar food but it was an occasion - so we hoped for a nice meal. Before I begin I have to compliment the lovely, pleasant & efficient staff that served us.. but that is where i have to leave it - the only good part of the meal was the starters - Goats Cheese was lovely, as were the prawns.. I had the steak sandwich & one had the burger... our meat was tough as an old boot. The fish special was ok but the veg was practically raw - i dont think it even met the pot.

At that stage we said, look lets just have dessert - unfortunately even this was a huge let down - if you cant get dessert right, you really do need to go back to chef school. So all in all a hugely disappointing experience and their was a group of us & we all agreed, the only good thing about this place was the friendly staff.

NOT TO BE DONE EVER AGAIN.

Toured Southern Ireland 21-28 July 2014 (with 3 days in Oldcastle Co.Meath for business, 4 days touring). This review is part of that tour; where we ate, visited & stayed.
Stayed in this hotel for 1 night and it was good. Our room was not ready even though we turned up at 2.30pm (rooms availble from 2pm) so we went and had a drink in the attached bar. About 1/2 hour later we were allowed to book in. No problems as these things happen. We wanted to visit the town and the nearby sites (Torc waterfall, etc) so had to ask for a local map (which I know from my travels hotels have), it would of been nice if one was freely given rather than requested. But once received the staff member was helpful with directions, restaurant recommendations and what to go and visit.

Nice hotel, very good value for money and in good location - 15 minute stroll on a flat road into town.
