The Ross Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Room is clean and modern, beds are comfortable. Quiet side of the street even though it is at the very heart of Killarney. Includes a fantastic breakfast with eggs cooked to order. Reception is very helpful in giving us tips on how to tour the Ring of Kerry on our own. Hotel parking is off site but within a walking distance. Restaurant at hotel is also fantastic.

We recently visited this lovely boutique hotel. It is situated right in the centre of killarney . The windows are ? Quadrupled glazed and very quiet and peaceful. The check in staff are lovely and so friendly. We were upgraded to a junior suite and it was so comfortable with every amenity! The beds were luxurious, beautiful bathroom with elemis toiletries. There was a smart television and another set at the end of the bed! The breakfast was very tasty and plentiful. We parked in the grounds of its sister hotel across the road and we could have availed of the spa facilities there also. I have stayed in the larger sister hotel on many occasions which is excellent. However I think I prefer this cute little hotel which has been beautifully modernised!

Hurricane Ophelia altered our plans, and The Ross put us up for 3 nights instead of just 1. The hotel is plush. The breakfast was super. The room was large and comfortable. The location cannot be beat. The staff was superior, the best we encountered in all of Ireland. If in Killarney, do yourself a favor and stay at The Ross.

Was supposed to stay here from October 16-19, but Ophelia had a different plan and we were only able to stay for 2 nights. This was unfortunate because we loved Killarney and we loved this hotel!! To start, I believe we were upgraded to a junior suite for our anniversary which was fantastic! The room was huge, had floor to ceiling windows in one corner with black out blinds and a fireplace with a seating area. The bed was amazing and so comfortable. Also had a mini fridge with complimentary still and sparkling water. Had dinner at the bar which was great. Staff at the hotel are wonderful. Very friendly and helpful. The location is great as it's literally around the corner from the start of the main street and about a 5ish minute walk to the train station. Killarney is super walkable as well. Loved, loved this hotel. Wish we had more nights here and would absolutely stay again!!

I cannot express how impressed I am with everything to do with this hotel. From the booking process which was simple, check- in, delicious food in the restaurant, amazing cocktails, such comfy beds in a room with such cool decor and beautiful breakfast again the next morning. Most of all though I have to compliment the service of each and every staff member that we met over the weekend. They were all so friendly, kind and helpful and in my opinion this makes such a huge difference to your experience in a place. Such a great stay. Will definitely be going back.

I stayed at the Ross 10/16/17-10/18/17 and cannot say enough nice things about the staff. The facility was uniquely decorated, had a great vibe and the customer service was the best I have experienced in a very long time. Front desk staff member, Katrina, was such a HUGE help, as were all that we encountered during our stay. I would highly recommend the Ross! LAuzenne

Rooms were fantastic, bathrooms wet excellent, the furniture and design are excellent. We did a gin tasting evening and they were extremely nice drinks and our bartender was one of the nicest guys ever (wish I could remember his name, he had a close cut beard, short black hair and was a local.). Dinner was perfect, never heard live piano played in a restaurant thought it only happened in movies. Genuinely faultless. Please do yourself a favour and stay at this near perfect hotel.

The rooms are very modern and comfortable. The bathrooms are nice with more counter area than many European bathrooms. Our room, on the 3rd floor, overlooked the cemetery next to the hotel which was very quaint. It also was over the patio area of the bar so if the window is open it could be a little noisy at night. We had breakfast included in our room fees and the breakfast was very good as you can order custom omlettes, egg dishes. The location to walk the nice downtown area is fabulous. Their food, for dinner, is nice in the restaurant. The bar area is a younger crowd, popular with bachelorette or hen parties. Service in the bar was not as top rate as the rest of the hotel. We recommend staying there and would stay there again.

Stayed here for two days on a family trip! Staff was friendly and helpful! Room was clean and very nice. Breakfast was excellent! Dinner was a fun experience, The restaurant was decorated in bright colors but the food is what was memorable! Everything was delicious! Great location just and short walk to bus station and tons of restaurants, bars, shops are right around the corner. A favorite for me was the Candy Bar! We will stay at The Ross again when we are back in the area!

From the efficient check in, clean rooms, central location and amazing pub grub I would definitely recommend the Ross Hotel. We ordered a cocktail and decided to have a look at the menu, we were so glad we did as the food was delicious and the prices were very reasonable. I'm looking forward to returning again some day.
