The room was clean, nice sized. The breakfast was prepared well. The best part is the hospitality of the staff, from checking in to late night @ the bar, just a great experience overall and would definitely consider staying here again

Beautiful hotel with charm and character, which is renowned for its fine food, cooked to order. Attention to detail is outstanding, ice bucket delivered to room daily, relaxing sleep/pillow spray, bath robe and slippers provided. Staff warm and welcoming with charisma, and a real open fire to welcome guests.

The royal is a really lovely hotel in the centre of Killarney. The food in the bar is delicious and it's the perfect place to meet friends for a catch up.

WHAT WORKED: central location; thoughtful staff; comfortable and well-appointed bathrooms; good quality breakfast. WHAT DIDN'T WORK: the rooms are cramped, threadbare and dark; the beds are small and uncomfortable; you can clearly hear all activity in the adjoining rooms and hall; the restaurant service is a bit slow.
