We had a pre wedding family get-together on the balcony of the hotel this weekend and the private outdoor space was fabulous. We ordered finger food for 23 people. We had plenty, and special care was taken to provide thoughtful options to our veggies and vegans. The staff were friendly and professional throughout and looked after us very well. Highly recommended. Thanks all.

Exceptional hotel ! Right in the middle of the shopping district. Three minute walk from the bus and train station. Tours office is right around the corner from the hotel. Les , in the restaurant , was accommodating, humorous and so welcoming . Great stay at this beautiful hotel. Mary B

Nice historic hotel. Has charm but the rooms are extremely clean. The rooms are small and there is no air-conditioning, so a visit during the heat of summer may be a bit warm. The food in the restaurant/bar is great. The location is excellent.

We stayed two nights and found the hotel to be lovely and welcoming. The room was larger than many we encounter in Europe. The staff was friendly and helpful. It’s a well appointed place with traditional charm. The location was perfect. We easily walked with our luggage from the train station and all it took was walking out the front of the hotel taking a turn and we had proximity to the main street of the town. Beautiful spot from which to visit Killarney National Park and the Ring of Kerry.

A great Irish pub!! Good food, good music and great people staffing the pub. The pub was filled each night with a mix of local people and tourists. The pub is conveniently located within the hotel. Car parking is a minor challenge

Great breakfast. Loved how you could help yourself to the buffet while your made-to-order entree was being made. Staff was prompt. My traveling friend and I made use of the well-appointed common area off the lobby to make phone calls to our families. The location was great! You could easily walk to the gardens, shopping and dining areas, and the beautiful cathedral. Would recommend this hotel for someone who doesn't mind stairs. Even with the elevator, we still had to walk up and down two sets of 2 or 3 steps each to get to our rooms.

What a lovely hotel to stay in in the centre of Killarney town with easy access to bus station, train station, taxis and jaunting cars. Lovely clean and spacious rooms. Breakfast was tasty and they even made us extra pancakes! Lovely, friendly and very helpful staff; from reception desk to porter to night porter to bar staff to breakfast staff. I was really impressed with the place and I would highly recommend it. If you’re travelling by car, the hotel does not have its own car park but there is a paid car park very nearby with good rates. I’ll definitely stay here again!

The staff was friendly and courteous at check in, in the bar and at breakfast. Our room was beautiful and comfortable and the breakfast was cooked to order and tasted splendid. It's a great location, too!

Out of the 4 wonderful hotels we stayed during our visit to Ireland. This was be far our favorite. It felt luxurious and quite comfortable. The staff is what sets it apart from the rest. They couldn't do enough for us. The dining room staff deserve extra praise. Les seemed to be everywhere attending to everyone making sure they were happy. A young waiter Don seemed to be following in his footsteps. The location was central and it was fun to watch the jaunty carts from our window. Can't wait till our next visit. D. B. Ocean View, DE

We were on a 7 night trip through Ireland and spent 2 nights here. It was our favorite hotel! The staff was wonderful, the rooms were beautiful. Loved the attached restaurant and pub! Highly recommend! The only downside was that there is no on sight parking, however there is public parking only a block away. Well worth the walk!
