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...

This hotel is in an excellent position near to train and bus stations and also to the myriad of night life that Killarney has to offer. The service was amazing - every single member of staff was so helpful and competent that it would be impossible to single out any one of them. The cleanliness was faultless combined with a...

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. It's in an ideal central position,...

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!

Our stay in Killarney Royal was nice. The parking area is just across the street, it was hard to find at first but convenient once we found it. It's an older hotel, which gave it a lot of charm. However, you could tell it's age in the room especially in the bathroom. Also, our room was next to the laundry...
