There were eight of us (two foursomes) on the golf outing and we stayed three nights in the Royal. All the staff were great and accommodating. From the front desk, to dining severs, and especially, John who went out of his way to ensure we were well taken care of. We had to travel a daybreak to make early tee... More

This place is fantastic. Stayed for 5 nights while playing some golf. I don't have a bad thing to say about the place. Its right in town so you can walk to everything. The rooms are great. But the staff is the best part. Everyone goes out of their way to accommodate you and couldn't be nicer. Will definitely be... More

We arrived in the middle of April. It had snowed a few days before, and we'd driven down from Galway, so we were delighted to find a small bottle of Jameson's on the table in our beautiful room, to warm us up. The Royal is operated by a friend's kinfolk, but the fine treatment we got would be available to... More

Two nights here in superior room. Huge with large bathroom. Had a/c which worked off a remote and little challenging to figure out but worked well. Great location in a great town to visit! Breakfast was great and they have a real nice afternoon tea.

Our driver stopped here for breakfast after an early morning pickup at Shannon Airport. It was the perfect choice! Fortunately, there was a table available and we enjoyed a delicious breakfast of eggs, brown bread, and cheeses. There was a tour group dining as well but it was quiet and lovely all around.

This hotel is within walking distance of everything in the town. Parking is convenient across the street. Food was excellent. I would stay here again and do plan to very soon. The only downside is that it's overpriced but that is normal for Killarney so I can't knock one individual hotel for this
