Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed here on February bank holiday weekend. The room was great, bed super comfortable. We had dinner in the hotel on the first night and the food was amazing, breakfast was the best we have ever had in a hotel. The staff were so helpful and extremely friendly. Loads of lovely walks close by. We will definitely be back. Shane and Marian

This is an absolute hidden gem in Killarney. Hands down - it is one of the nicest places we have stayed in a long time. Everything from the beautiful boutique bedroom and spacious bathroom, value for money, the fabulous bar & restaurant and even nicer menu & meal, gorgeous cocktails and drinks menu but most importantly a very genuine and caring staff. This place is 5 star. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and can't wait to visit again soon.

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Victoria during our recent trip to Ireland. We ran our planned itinerary for our road trip through the Ring of Kerry and Dingle by Maura that we had based off of the most famous US guidebook that claims to give insider tips. She took one look at it and rewrote it off the top of her head! She made it so that we got a significantly less stressful drive and saw the true hidden gems that only locals knew about. Would recommend coming to stay here just so Maura can fix your trip!

We came to Killarney exhausted from a day's drive and immediately we were in the right place. Maura at the front desk helped us with everything we could possibly need, including tips on our travel. She not only coordinated dinner at the hotel restaurant, but also advised us on our ambitious tour of Ring of Kerry and Dingle. The restaurant had delicious fish and chips. The staff was incredibly friendly and attentive. The room was cozy, relaxing and spacious.

We should have driven up in Bentley with the service, especially the breakfast. I did not expect the place to be this nice. The price is quite reasonable as well. Not quite within walking distance (not in October) from the center of town, but the drive is short and it's very quiet.

The Victoria was the best hotel we stayed at during our time in Ireland. The front desk staff was knowledgeable and extremely friendly, shout out to Maura who made our stay extra special. The food and the atmosphere at the restaurant/bar was top notch. It was a an easy drive to start the Ring of Kerry tour and super close to downtown Killarney. I would definitely recommend this hotel to family and friends.

The Victoria is located very near to the Killarney National Park and is a walkable distance to the town itself. Service was impeccable, friendly, and helpful - with special appreciation for Maura at the front desk and Norma in the dining rooms. The food is well-prepared, tasty, and of enough variety to please most palates. Restaurant ambiance is a definite plus, whether for a bright breakfast, evening meal, or a late visit to the bar. Highly recommend “dining in” while there. The food is better than the stuff in town, and again the staff are great! The guest rooms are well-appointed and comfortable (even if the views are a bit limited), and there is ample lounge space in the hotel for small-to-large gatherings. It’s also Quiet, which is always appreciated after long days exploring the area. For activities, the local convention center and national park are easy walks; bike rental and bike paths are even closer. Front desk staff at The Victoria are happy to help with planning excursions (some of which pick you up at the front door) and transportation. A walk into downtown is a scenic 20 minutes, give or take pending your pace. We loved our stay at The Victoria.

Room Tip: Our view was of an empty lot next to the hotel. The rooms with a courtyard view might be better?...

We had a lovely stay at The Victoria in Killarney. The rooms are lovely and the showers were unbelievable! Who doesn't love great water pressure? The breakfast was also super delicious and lots of healthy options. The concierge Maura was unbelievable, so lovely and helpful. She made our stay extra special with her warmth and kindness. Would love to come back if we are ever back in beautiful Killarney.

This is a lovely little hotel in a great location, just outside of the town of Killarney. The breakfasts were exceptional. The onsite pub great, and the staff was super friendly. One staff member said, "we're a family owned hotel, and we want you to feel like family here--like it's your own home." On our last night, the hotel ordered us a cab to go down to have a few pints and listen to music. Their recommendation was spot on and at the end, we decided to walk home. It was only about 15 mins from downtown. In hindsight, I wished we'd spent another night here and explored the area more. Killarney National Park, which is right down the road and the gateway to the Ring of Kerry, is a beautiful place. If you need a place to stay, stay here!
