Great hotel , perfect hotel for families , swimming pool , games room , bar / restaurant and gym . Very accommodating and relaxed atmosphere. Rooms are spacious, we stayed in a room with two double beds and a cot . Will fit a large family comfortably. Breakfast is great with a wide variety to choose from . Stayed here last year also on a competition weekend and will again next year . Thanks to the staff.

The bed is so comfortable you will want to take it home with you. Rooms are very clean. The breakfast was fine, nothing special but not awful. The homemade brown bread that was served with dinner was amazing. The only downsides were the towels in the bathroom. They are very small and there was only enough for one person. The room was quiet cold when we were retiring at midnight as the heating is switched off between 11pm and 7am. Once in bed though you will warm up as the duvet covers are very cozy.

Stayed here as we were attending a concert in the INEC. Cannot fault the hotel, staff were lovely and very helpful as we forgot tooth paste, they came to the rescue! Location is very central 10 min walk from INEC and 20 min walk from town. Breakfast was good and rooms were clean.

We stayed one night to break up a long journey- 2 adults 2 kids- room was fine and great value. It was a very wet night so we ate in bar when we arrived- friendly service, food was surprisingly good. Hotel location is good if you did want to go out though. The real bonus was the pool- it was warm, quiet and a decent size- nice and bright too- we had a lovely swim the following morning. Breakfast was good value also- good selection and kids free. All in, couldn’t get much better for the price- I recommend the hotel and we would go back.

My wife & 2 kids stay here every Christmas for 3/4 nights and the hotel is perfect for us. Located a short,level-ground,safe walk to the town centre, there’s plenty of parking in the car park. The hotel is relatively clean and always warm and comfortable. We stayed this year in the family suite which is a great size and great value for money too. The lobby is fresh and welcoming as is the bar area, although the bar reminds me of an airport bar for some reason. The staff seemed to be more friendly this year for some reason, not that there was anything wrong with them before but there seemed to be a lot more smiles this year. We ate at the bar only one night and the food was typical hotel restaurant food, good value and plentiful. The staff really helped when we ordered a meal to bring upstairs to our eldest child, they trayed it up for us and had it ready as we left to go back to our room. Breakfast was typical hotel buffet style and well replenished throughout mealtimes. We used the leisure centre each day and it is perfect for families to put down evening times if the weather is poor. We must mention the man ( local accent) supervising the pool area, he was very nice to my kids and loaned my youngest daughter a pair of swim goggles each day and adjusted them for her and all with a big smile, these are the things that matter to us. We had a small issue while checking in, I booked with the IHG app and assumed it was B&B rate but the lady on reception informed me that this was not so. As I checked my phone and searched for emails and booking confirmation etc the same lady kind of pushed my wife into purchasing an advance breakfast deal. I wasn’t too happy that the lady didn’t give me a chance to check with IHG. I later emailed IHJ and to his great credit the hotel manager called to our room next day immediately refunded the breakfast charges. I’m still not sure if the room was booked @ room only rate or B&B rate but the manager handled it very very well and we felt that as regular customers he looked after us. Thank you again for the kind gesture.

Holiday Inn Killarney is in a great location as it is a 10-15 minute walk from the cute shops and restaurants of Killarney. The hotel has a very cute lobby and very nice staff. The rooms were a little dated but comfortable and efficient.

This family friendly accommodation was near-perfect, offering a great place from which to base our Kerry adventures. It was a perfect match for our needs, our young family and cost. I would normally rate this experience as a 3/5, but the value was undeniable. The proximity to the parks, the Ring of Kerry and the Dingle Peninsula was fantastic. It could have been closer to the central town of Killarney, but it worked out fine for our family.

My wife and I stayed in The Holiday Inn last month for a 2 night break before the Christmas. We found the staff to be very helpful & friendly, the room spacious , beds large and comfortable. We ate in the bar the first night and the food and service were excellent and great value, so much so that we had intended going out to eat the second night but decided we wouldn't do better elsewhere. While the room could have done with a little TLC decor wise , nothing major involved. The hotel is very convenient to the town and the park and has free onsite parking. We intend stay there again on our next trip to Killarney.

Pros: Good size rooms. Decent beds. Good size bathroom. Curved shower curtain! Lots of free parking. Free Wifi, 4mbs down/5mbs up. Floors clean. Nice staff. Cons: Walls in desperate need of a redo, currently dirty and torn wallpaper. Three meter curtains with no draw control—a real PITA trying to flick them open or closed. Absolute crap TV—very limited channels, lousy sound, standard definition, 10-20% of screen cropped out (no matter the screen setting).

Stayed here recently had a great weekend, Room was lovely,pool and spa good,Breakfast was lovely I asked for mushrooms as they were not on the buffet and had no problem getting them. I was with A family group so we decided to stay in the bar and have dinner and drinks and we were not disappointed, the music was good to,Cheers to the lovely lads in the bar great service great staff overall well done, Will definitely be back to stay
