My wife and I stayed here as part of a honeymoon around the west coast of Ireland. We arrived late on a Sunday evening after a day of driving the Skellig ring and sitting in traffic on our way into Killarney; as it was late when we arrived we could only find parking some distance from the hotel and we struggled through a group of American guests to reach the reception desk. The staff were indifferent (a smile costs nothing!) and we were checked in to our Double Deluxe Room on the third floor. Although it had a great view of the gardens, the room was small and stuffy and looked nothing like the Double Deluxe Room on the hotel website. There was a constant hum from an extractor fan that was across the hall from us and we had to sleep with the window open as the rooms do not have air conditioning (a fan is provided though). After a fairly poor night's sleep we went for breakfast; the selection was excellent and the food was very good but again the service was lacking and we were forgotten about after we were seated. Maybe my review of the hotel is a little harsh considering that there was quite a crowd in town for The Gathering, however, as repeat business is more likely to come from an Irish couple who spent a memorable night of their honeymoon and not a coach-load of tourists from the US, I think the hotel are missing the opportunity to offer a better personal service.
