4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

What a hotel. From the minute we walked in the door, everything about the Ross surpassed our expectations. The staff were so helpful and so friendly, smiles all round. The quality of the accommodation and food was at all times excellent. Looking forward to a return visit.

We had a great stay, The Ross is beautiful and in a great location right in the centre of Killarney. Our room was spacious and clean making for a great nights kip! The breakfast spread was grand and I would also recommend the restaurant of an evening. The bar is everything I had hoped for on my first visit to Ireland, great staff and a great atmosphere. Thank you to everyone for making an unforgettable trip!

I stayed there with my husband over the past few days and cannot say enough about the service and the hotel. It is in a great location in Killarney. It is steps away from so many attractions like the Jaunting cars, many pubs / restaurants and just around the corner from the outlets. Room was spacious and very clean. But the best part of the Ross was the service! Marzena was amazing, any question I had she was able to answer! I had many. We even had a chance to meet the owner Padraig. He was very knowledgeable about the area and gave us great recommendations for places to go and see. We took his recommendation about Riedy's (pub and sweet shop) which is conventionally located around the corner and spent a great night listening to some Irish music in a great unique space. As you can tell I highly recommend this location. If you can't get a room here I would suggest their sister location across the road, the Killarney Park Hotel.

We had a great stay here for 2 nights in early July. The location is wonderful, right off the main street and also close to the park. Rooms were a good size, beds comfy. There was a bit of party noise from outside one of the nights, but it did not interfere with our sleep. We also had the breakfast included with our room, and it was quite good! In-house baked goods, juices, and cereals on a buffet, and hot breakfast made to order. Best part was that staff would provide not only cups for coffee to-go, but also paper bags to take muffins and scones on the road too! Staff was very friendly and helpful. No complaints.

We originally booked this hotel because it was close the train station, but turns out, it's close to the main drag. In fact, it's right around the corner. When you go to Killarney, you will discover the whole town is really only one or two streets long. So, when you stay here it's really easy to get around. the hotel is cute and quaint, and like most hotels in Ireland—has no air conditioning, so I suggest trying to get a lower floor as it can get a little warm. But, that stands for all hotels in Ireland. Unfortunately, our room was just opposite the alleyway of all the pubs, which meant we were up at 5 a.m. with the bartenders throwing out the beer kegs. I had to shut the window to get any sleep, which meant an even warmer room. In all, we would definitely stay here again, but we would ask to stay in another part of the hotel. Tips: There is a bar in the hotel, which is great for a night cap.

Went to Killarney for a weekend break and stayed at the Ross. It was a brilliant place to stay. The hotel is in an ideal central location, allowing you to walk anywhere very easily. The staff are all very helpful and friendly with smiles on their faces all the times. The rooms are very comfortable too and the bar downstairs is an added bonus.

Very convenient hotel with large rooms, clean, friendly staff and comfortable beds . Enjoyed our stay until Saturday evening when the music from the downstairs bar was revertebrating through the room . I so wanted to write a glowing review for this hotel but the noise level was just unacceptable the last night of our stay and was really disruptive. It was absolutely impossible to sleep and we had an early tour plan the next morning .

Smaller hotel, rooms were very nice, great location to walk to town, staff was friendly and helpful, the breakfast that was included daily had a lot of variety and was quite good. Would recommend staying!

Stayed here twice this year.first time with group of girls and then went back with my husband.great location and a very modern hotel.rooms are lovely and i could not fault the service.we ate in the restaurant and it was fab.upstairs then for cocktails which are amazing.i dropped my cocktail by accident and the barman was straight over with another one with no extra cost.i was most impressed.will definitely be back.oh Also lovely card and treats left in our room as return guests.would highly recommend and i will definitely be back😉

We had the absolute best service with Michaela! She recommended the perfect thing with food and drinks and provided excellent service the whole night. We wish we were staying at the Ross longer just to have her as our waitress again!! We would highly recommend and would make the Ross hotel a priority next time.
