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.

The bar was clean and the staff were friendly and helpful but Covid ruined the experience.... I know there could be minimal interaction and they couldn't do much about this but some light background music would have lightened the mood a little... It was a cold experience because there was no sound whatsoever other than cutlery being used. I wasn't expecting a rave or a dance but some light music would have been nice. On a better note, we were late out one evening (after travelling to Dingle) and were going to be about 20 mins late for our meal time, we rang to explain and they were kind enough to accommodate us when we explained.

Similar to a lot of nearby hotels where you can order food in the bar, The River Bar is another great example of where you can find great mid-range food in a comfortable atmosphere. More formal than bar food in the states, yet not as expensive as a full high-end restaurant.

We always eat in the bar when we stay here. The staff are always very nice and in particular one guy. Unfortunately don't know his name but he is there a long time and we look forward to his warm welcome and great personality when we are there.

We have stayed here several times in the past, and always found this a cosy place. Today went for dinner with our 4 years old. We had burger, sea bass and fish for our son. Quality was great, the taste really great on all 3 meals. We also had a soda, glad of wine and a beer. The service was way better than what we have experienced in other restaurants. It’s a brilliant place to bring kids, they have toys in the hall for kids, the hotel and staff are perfectly nice. And the price was ok to. This is second time we went for dinner here. And we will be back. I can only recommend this place as a restaurant and hotel to. The only reason we’re not staying here any more, is there are no swimming pool.

My wife and I stayed in the Riverside Hotel recently and had the good fortune to dine in the River Bar. The service was very good and friendly. The food arrived very quickly and tasted as good as it looked! Later we stopped in again for drinks, the bar staff were as helpful and friendly as the dining staff had been, offering us tips on what to see around Killarney. All in all a very pleasant stay for us. We highly recommend the Riverside Hotel and are already planning our return.
