... as a hotel……haha
We gave everyone some time off to go swimming, get their bags organized and rest.
Dinner was good - Soup, Melon, or caprese salad for starter and then they could choose between Chicken Supreme, steak, fish etc. Dessert was eclairs, rice pudding or a raspberry tort.
After dinner we went to Celtic Steps. It was a mini “River dance” show. It was awesome! The ...
... and went back to pick up Dick. The bike rental guy had offered to pick up Dick and the bike, but we didn't want Dick to have to get a ride back with the strange little bike rental guy! We went to the Beaufort Bar for dinner and it was another fantastic meal. We are eating waaaayyy too well on this trip, I'm afraid! I love the Beaufort Bar for its very old stone building and pastoral setting. Tomorrow we head down to Cork with stops at Blarney Castle and the Jameson Distillery along the ...
Wow what an amazing day this was!
We woke nice and early in cute Dingle and jumped in the car, ready for what we knew would be a beautiful day.
We had heard that Conor's Pass was beautiful, which is a mountain range pass once you left Dingle. So we took that route expecting great things. Unfortunately, we saw absolutely nothing! The fog was so thick we couldn't even see 5 metres ahead! So we put ...
Yes, I have been lazy the past couple days in my blogging. So this one will cover the past three days all in one blog. :)
Sunday evening we had initially planned on going to the Cliffs of Moher and then on to Galway to book a ferry day trip to one of the Aran Islands and then head to Dublin to spend the night and tour Dublin on Tuesday. After checking the weather for Monday and seeing they were calling for rain most of the day (go figure), we decided ...
... tour guide that his coworker Kelly had when she did paddywagon! Random... We had another little lookout stop, where there was a man and his pet donkey just standing there in the rain. Apparently he just stands there every day, waiting for a wife. He was friendly though, and very content, smiling away and enjoying the rain. When we got back on the bus we were in for a bit of a treat.. Mark decided he would play us some Irish music. So for the next 20minutes or ...

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.
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 .
Ray Smith Tampa,Fl
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.
DJH, Pittsburgh, Pa
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
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
