          This was a nice hotel, we were here for two nights. Rooms were clean and the beds were comfy. I remember because I was sick with a cold.

          Historical Traveler Reviews Dromhall Hotel Killarney

          Very "Flowery"


          Room = small but clean. Flower patterns on all furniture (except wardrobe/dressing table) and curtains which didn't appeal to me but if you didn't look at the patterns they all worked fine.

          Bed Covers = very itchy and too many sheets and blankets on the bed to get tangled up in.

          I didn't think this hotel was great value for money (but that's all Irish hotels! :)

          The only thing I will remember about my stay here is the overload of flowers and colours.

          Old Worldly. Not for me.


          My company booked this hotel for me and my colleagues. It was fairly ok but not enough for me to book it again by myself.

          I stayed previously next door in the Clarion which is owned by the same family. I had thought the other the other hotel was olde wordly but the trend continued through to the Dromhall, but only in the rooms.

          The hotel is in a great location, only a few minutes walk from Killarney town. The reception is grand with a magnificent stairway. The are just so so. They are neither helpful nor unhelpful. The dont look particularly happy to be working there other than Ciaran the porter who was very helpful.

          The bar is nice and modern with some very nice and reasonably priced food. Upstairs in the bistro the prices are a little eccentric but the food you get in respect of it is amazing. We dined there twice and both nights I was overly happy with the food. The t-bone steak was massive. It took some work to finish it off.

          The rooms let the hotel down, in my humble opinion. I prefer modern. Being in my mid 20's floral patterns and old furniture do nothing for me. My understanding is that because its Killarney and it appeals to tourists, this may be what they are looking for, that "home away from home".

          My room also overlooked the roof of the bar/restaurant and its many air conditioning units. That is not a criticism is itself, rather just an observation that you may end up with a room looking at these. They stay humming late into the night so beware!!

          The views are just amazing overlooking the reeks of the Kerry region. I have climbed Carrauntowhill(highest mountain) so suggest visiting this region even if you only drive through the Gap of Dunloe towards the Ring of Kerry or Kenmare. It looks better from the top but it takes 5 hours to climb up and down.

          Overall I was happy with the hotel but would not return as the decor is not for me.

          I have attached candid photos so you can judge for yourself.

          Servizio eccellente


          Ho partecipato a un battesimo in questo hotel domenica 7 gennaio. Il personale non poteva essere pi cordiale e il buffet caldo e freddo veniva presentato molto bene ed era molto gustoso. Il direttore non poteva essere pi accomodante e disponibile, soprattutto con 10 bambini che correvano di qua e di l. Questa stata la seconda volta che ho partecipato a una funzione in questo hotel e sono tentato di organizzare il mio ricevimento di nozze qui l'anno prossimo.

          Excellent service


          Attented a Family Christening at this hotel sunday 7th January.

          Hotel staff couldnt have been friendlier and the hot and cold buffet was displayed attractively and tasted great. The Manager on duty couldnt have been more accommodating or helpfull especially with about 10 kids running around. This being the second time attending a function at this hotel and Im tempted to host my wedding reception here next year.

          Great Stay


          Just back from spending a Sat night in the Dromhall Hotel. Beatiful foyer and reception area rooms a little old fashioned but big enough for two.

          Fabulous lunch in the bar and really good dinner in the main restaurant that night. Group of us stayed here and had a really good time, staff very helpful and friendly in bar and restaurant. Not so smiley at reception.

          Would go back there for the facilities though and the nearness to killarney town.

          Very Average 4* Hotel


          I stayed in this hotel for 1 night. On viewing their website you would be led to believe that this was a super hotel based on the photos.

          On check in, I was met by a grumpy receptionist, who was not at all pleasant. I almost felt like apologising for checking in!

          The foyer of the hotel was very pleasant with nice soft furnishings. However the bedroom was a different story. For a 4* hotel, I was very disappointed. The cleanliness was suspect. Obviously the ledge behind the toilet is not on the cleaning list for housekeeping. There was enough dust to suggest that it had not been cleaned in sometime. The wallpaper was also peeling, not something you would expect to see in a 4*.

          On the upside, I ate in the restaurant which was very child friendly with a very pleasant host. The food was above average and service was fine.

          Again the same could be said for breakfast.

          On the whole, I would not reccommend this hotel as rates are not clean. It is possible to get a much nicer B & B in the same area.

          Nice hotel but check your change


          Stayed here for a couple of nights in June as part of a tour around the west of Ireland.

          Location - OK, about a 10 minute walk to town centre

          Parking - Excellent. Large free car park on hotel grounds

          Staff/Reception - Nice reception. Receptionist wasn't particularly friendly and took an age to greet us. She seemed to be behind the reception 24 hours a day so I guess she might have been tired.

          Room - quite large and nice and clean.

          Restaurant - only had breakfast but this was excellent. Can recommend the pancakes.

          Bar - Whilst the bar is nice we had a bad experience. The bar man tried to charge me 10 euro for a coke and a beer. This was despite the fact I had ordered the same thing an hour earlier from the same guy and paid 6 euro. When I pointed this out he insisted he was right and I had to insist he get me a receipt. This showed that it should have been 6 euro but he just shrugged his shoulders and said nothing. I can forgive a mistake but this was a blatant attempt to overcharge me.

          A Great find in Killarney


          Excellent Service, great staff and a brialliant atmosphere. The hotel was clean and anything we wanted was instantly available to us. All in all one of the best hotels I have stayed in.

          A lovely place to stay............


          We enjoyed our stay at the Dromhall Hotel very much. We had reservations at another hotel, but did not like it, so moved here. The staff were very helpful in accomodating our move, ( especially Marlene and Brendan at the front desk) and we had a lovely king-size room. We ate at both the Bistro and the Bar, and found the food in both to be great. I would recommend this to anyone travelling to Killarney!

          Totally Relaxing


          We really enjoyed our stay. The room was quite big and the sevice was excellent. We dined at the bistro and both the staff and the food were of a very high standard. Nice clean pool and changing rooms. All in all a totally enjoyable stay.

Fortunately nobody fell off even when it came to almost fisty cuffs between a couple of people trying to take a picture on the edge.

          The next morning our intrepid oceanography professor, John Rapaglia, proposed a mountain climbing adventure. But Because there had been a snow storm the previous night, we were unanimously talked out of it by the locals. Plan B was a bike trip to Aghadoe- a pagan site superseded by a Christian Monastery established in the 6th or 7th century. It is one of Ireland's most beautiful scenes overlooking the Killarney Lakes. So John, Luca, a ...

I thought that if I had my sister deposit my money into my savings account then I would be able to use it but I was sadly mistaken.
