Ring of Kerry

A travel blog entry by paulandashe


... pretty photo opportunity, and jump back in the car before they had time to pile all of them back in the bus. We became very good at these strategies!

The drive around Ring of Kerry really was spectacular. We had many people tell us that Dingle was better, and many say the Ring of Kerry was better. They were both fantastic but I think the Ring of Kerry beats Dingle by a smidgen.
The one thing we ...

Wet, wild & wonderful

A travel blog entry by tina.hayden


One thing I find interesting about our cottage is that there is an electric meter inside that the owner comes in to feed every now and then. I think so far he has fed it once, our first day here. At the end of the stay we actually pay him for electric usage. When I think about it, it certainly seems like a fair way to figure out electric cost. At the end of the stay he counts how much he put in the meter & that is what we ...

Castle Demesne parkrun and Killarney

A travel blog entry by johnnym


... name. Every time I see a sign I give it a "ba-eeee" just, as computer game players from the 80s might remember, as the game intro used to go. Thought I was a bit better prepared this time, with the phone sat marked with the right point for parkrun, not just a 'find the town and the rest is gravy' view, but I still did a loop of the centre before I spotted that I'd hit the right point, gone on and so the phone was, in the u-turn free fashion it prefers, taking me back there. Get ...

Ireland (May 14 to May 16)

A travel blog entry by loogmord


... holes - the original one and one irregular shaped (pick-shaped) hole to the lower left of the orIginal hole that had been created by repeated strumming. What a voice he had! We also met up with an English couple about our age in the bar who lived in Manchester and had taken the car ferry from Angelsea. The trip took about 3 hours to cross the Irish Sea. Not a bad alternative to flying and much cheaper, as long as the weather is ...

Last Minute at It's Best

A travel blog entry by oneal


... so much on St.Patrick's Day. It was far less crowded, and we enjoyed a peaceful, delicious dinner. Garrett had some fish and chips, Hake, to be precise. It was a mild fish in a great breaded crust. I ate lasagna that was good, but not even close to my Mom's. In fact, as a side note, there are not many foods that I have yet found to even come close to rivaling her cooking!! After dinner, we headed to a different pub to enjoy some local music. O'Connel's, named after ...

    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.

    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
