      Historical Traveler Reviews Killarney Royal

      Highlite of our tour


      My wife and I were very impressed with the room,the meals and most of all the staff. The room was the largest and best appointed, of all on our tour of Ireland. The food was wonderful. The staff was most friendly and courteous.

      Superb hotel


      stayed at the royal just before christmas and it was excellent,the rooms are so spacious and the bathroom amazing! we loved it and will certainly be going back.the staff were also great ,I cannot praise this hotel enough!

      Great value luxury


      Walked in off the street and got a very good deal (off-season). Great service - we were even given a key to the room before we had agreed to stay to check it out. Fabulous old-fashioned luxury, with none of that sickening deference that you get in some places. Very well kept family-run hotel, highly recommended.

      Golf from heaven


      Our golfing party of 8 were looked after royally (pardon the pun) at the hotel and the staff were both welcoming and efficient. My room was superb and the overall standard excellent. Well worth a visit.

      At home away from home


      We have stayed at the Royal on three seperate trips The rooms are great,the atmosphere is warm , the bar & dinning room offer good food & service and the hotel staff has little turnover, making you feel like part of the family.

      The location is centeral but away from tourist noise. A gret place to stay.We are going back this year .

      Great service


      The Royal is exactly that. Great service and wonderful staff. Food is marvelous with a small private hotel feel. Highly recommended for stays of all types.

      A warm welcome at the Killarney Royal


      We have just come back from a weekend break at the Killarney Royal Hotel. We went as a group for my husbands 40th Birthday and from the moment we stepped into the hotel we were given a warm Irish welcome. As soon as we entered the reception we knew we had made the right choice, a warm cosy fire, friendly atmosphere and attentive staff. Beginning with an informative and much appreciated guided tour, we were then shown to our beautiful suites, very spacious, nicely decorated and even an automatic putter which went down well with the men.

      Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, evening meal in the hotel restaurant was beautiful, service excellent and they recommended a fantastic restaurant for the Saturday evening.

      We had a memorable stay and would definitely return again one day.

      Killarney Royal - Home away from home


      The Killarney Royal has been home for our American golf group many times. We keep going back because of the outstanding staff and wonderful facilities. It is perfectly locating for touring in the Southwest. It's comfortable, homey and the staff is more friendly than any other place in VERY friendly Ireland. This stay is a must if you are anywhere near

      Killarney !

      Good Location but Below Average for the Price


      Visited the Killarney Royal. The Decor was antiquated. I don't like hotel where you hear the floorboards crack everytime you walk on them. I paid 350 euros for two nights inclusive of dinner and breakfast. The dinner was typical of any hotel you would get in Ireland and the restuarant is nothing special with absolutely no atmosphere. Staff were friendly but I wasn't buying into this Four Star rating. Remember there is no parking facility. Overall average. I think I will try somewhere different next time.

      Great part of our great vacation


      The Hotel is very, very nice the rooms were great and the food and drink were great too, but the service and attitude of the staff was truly outstanding, perhaps the best I've ever encountered (and I've travelled an awful lot in many,many great hotels). I will go back

      Weather: beautiful and sunny

      Today is a travel day, we must leave the charming stone cottage that has been home for the last week. Suitcase and backpacks loaded in the car we leave for our next destination, Navigation and left-side driving has greatly improved. We were on the road earlier than usual and got behind a herd of cows headed to pasture.

      We arrived in Killarney by noon, parked and wandered ...

      Actually Made it to Killarney this Time

      A travel blog entry by lauren93m on Jul 15, 2014

      We left at 8 in the morning to drive two hours to Killarney, Ireland. We scheduled a bus tour to see the Ring of Kerry that started at 10:30. When we got there it was obvious to see that they were having some type of horse racing event. There were horses and wagons all over the place. Killarney was such a cute little town with a lot to do. If we had extra time I would have wanted to hike around ...

As we're driving through Abbeyfeale I saw the turnoff to Listowel where my great great grandfather Patrick McElliott came from and as we rounded the bend in the street there was a sign above a doorway "McElliott - Accountant"! What a buzz. So the family must still be here. We're in County Kerry and I don't see a turnoff to Ballylongford where Patrick's wife Bridgit Ahern came from. There are a ...

      Checked in, unpacked, dinner with Dorothy's favorite dessert presented beautifully.
      After dinner, many of our tour went across the street to one of the pubs for local music and a few pints of beer. Dorothy declined to go but Don and Ronna and I went.

      ... But none of the pictures were any good or had the name of the town :( I was also disappointed that the shop I wanted to look in was closed for lunch when we went back :( I would have loved to have a nice souvenir from that town, because I especially liked it. Oh well - less packing... Dean bought an Irish tin whistle - prepare yourselves, family and friends! (Knowing Dean, he'll be good at it by the time we get home... It will just have been me - and ...
