The Ross Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We spent a really comfortable five days in the Ross. Lovely breakfast every day freshly prepared. Very clean high standards central to all local activities a walk from the race course. Staff were outstandingly pleasant and helpful.

Nice place to stay in Killarney. Hotel has one of the best bars as well as restaurants to eat at in town. Breakfast is worth the charge here as well. Parking was easy, we were able to park across the street at their sister hotel at no extra cost for a couple nights.

Only a few feet from Main St, the Ross was the perfect hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful and was able to set up tours for me before my arrival. A particular shout out to Katarina who went above and beyond to make sure my tours were set. As a plus, the pool and spa facilities at the Killarney Park, Ross’ sister Hôtel, were available. I highly recommend the hotel and plan on staying again when I get back to Killarney

Poor communication of Hotel rules and restrictions upon arrival resulted in our friend not being allowed to stay in our room even though we had an unused bed. If this rule was properly communicated at check-in, we would have let them know that our friend would probably stay with us.

My wife and I stayed at the Ross Hotel for four nights recently. It was amazing! The staff was super helpful and friendly, directing us to good restaurants and other shops. Breakfast was included with our room. We could get a cooked-to-order breakfast, and/or select items from a food bar. One night we had dessert in the bar and it was just fabulous. Our room was very nice. It was near the end of a quiet hallway. The bed was comfortable. The view overlooked a church and a busy street corner, but we could not hear any sound at all. Very impressed!

Myself and my wife have stayed in the Ross 3/4 times now and it never ceases to impress. The hotel is super cool, super clean and the beds are amazing. I love the energy in the bar and of course the VERY tasty cocktails. Breakfast is top class and is a final treat before you checked out or set off for your day. A pleasure as always... we'll be back.

We were a group of friends celebrating the second day of a wedding - had a fun time in the bar, enjoying great music, food and service. The welcome from the staff is always top class, and the rooms are very comfortable with lots of small touches like fresh fruit, area guides etc Had a great stay and and we will be back again - for stay number 4 or 5!

We were a large group of friends staying in the Ross and dining in Cellar One. Our stay could not have been more enjoyable and the team were very accommodating to us all, including early check in. We had dinner in Cellar One and the range and quality of the menu was excellent and catered for food allergies. We also enjoyed some cocktails at the gin bar and had a really enjoyable evening at the Ross. The hotel is located right in the centre of the town and is ideally positioned for exploring Killarney. We all agreed that we would highly recommend the Ross to anyone visiting Killarney!

We have been coming to the Ross hotel for many years now and I have to say it is still top of the class. With its warm, cosy, contemporary and stylish feel, it is a treat for any occasion. However, it’s the staff (whom are second to none) who make this establishment the success it is today. They take such pride in the hotel, really care about their jobs and always go that extra mile to make each guest feel special. For instance we stayed in the hotel over Easter for our daughter’s 5th birthday and were totally overwhelmed by the wonderful service she received. On check-in we were greeted by the warm, friendly welcome of the manager, Ciara Treacy who wished our daughter a happy birthday and gave her an Easter egg as a treat. When we entered our bedroom, there was a dessert plate waiting for her. She was really excited and felt so special. The enthusiastic, attentive, diligent and excellent manner of each staff member echoes right across every area of the Ross from reception to bar-restaurant to housekeeping. I must add-the breakfast is exquisite with a varied and tasty selection to suit every taste, thanks to the hard-working chefs. On this occasion, we were also served by a really friendly, helpful, caring, gentle and kind waitress by the name of Eileen, who did a lovely gesture of giving an Easter egg to our children on our last morning at breakfast. We have stayed in many hotels in Killarney but have to say that The Ross just continues to surprise and is our favourite by far. I would like to thank all staff for making our stay and my daughter’s birthday extra special and memorable. Best wishes and continued success, The Crowley family, Cork

Our daughter booked this hotel for myself and my husband. Although we"ve stayed in Killarney 3-4 times a year for over twenty years, we"d never actually been in this hotel until now. Very modern and funky interior. The room was fabulous, the bathroom was fabulous and the bed was heaven. Unfortunately we did not dine here but did spend time in the champagne/cocktail bar where the staff were fantastic, but were a bit disappointed that the bar seemed to cater for a young clientele. I booked a facial for the following day in the sister hotel, The Killarney Park, which was amazing. Breakfast was fine and would def stay here again.
