Stayed here for 2 nights with husband and our youngest child. From moment of arrival to our departure I felt right at home. Clean, cosy and warm atmosphere and so welcoming. Plenty of breakfast delights to choose from, very helpful, pleasant and professional staff. Room was again clean, cosy and well spacious. Will definitely stay again.

The Royal is a warm and comfortable hotel. It isn't grand or flash but it is charming and pleasant. The room was huge with a great bathroom and very good beds. The breakfasts are excellent, especially our new gourmet find - Irish bread which is dense and nutty. The hotel is opposite all the wonderful nightlife - the bars selling... More

We were a little disappointed in our rooms. This was supposed to be a top rated hotel and we expected more. Although the front desk staff and bell men were terrific, it didn't make up for the rooms. Compared to the other hotels on the trip, this was not up to our expectations.

Stayed here for our third night in the area. A classic older hotel that has much character. Bed big and comfy, good pillows. The restaurant had a very good breakfast. Location is fantastic- close to shopping and the heart of Killarney. Being older, there is a need to modernize some aspects ( creaking floors, sound proofing to halls- but indeed... More

We found this hotel searching for top hotels in Killarney on trip advisor. It looked good, but we were apprehensive because you just never know. Expectations were exceeded, comfortable and large rooms, clean, lovely staff with great service. We had 2 single rooms and a double, the singles were almost nicer than the double.

We had a wonderful stay at the Killarney Royal. The property is very clean and well maintained. The staff is exceptional, a big shout out to John ( the night waiter) who got us off early with breakfast so we could make an early tee time. The service is outstanding, friendly and warm. Look forward to returning to the Royal!
