    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

    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

    ... from which the islands can be be seen showed a solid opaque white, so the fillum is all we have to imagine the lives of the monks by.

    The loop road then went south and turned west, through some more passes and past some more lakes. The scenery changed again, becoming less wild and more agricultural, and then as we got closer to home (Killarney again) it became very rainforesty. Very much like NZ's mountain passes, particularly the road to Milford Sound. ...

    We have a very solid meal in a traditional restaurant and head back to the pubs.

    We are set with pints or whiskey (who can remember these details) in a crowded bar, and find a large empty booth to sit in, with plenty of seats to spare. Watching a musician, not a true Irish session, just a man with a guitar, but great entertainment and people watching nonetheless. 2 hen parties. (Female nights out are called hen parties ...

    Our day began with a visit to Kilkenny Castle. The original castle was built in the 12th century. The first stone castle was built in 1260. The Butler family bought the castle in 1391 and lived there until 1935. The castle lay vacant and in ruin until 1967,when it was given to the nation of Ireland. It has been restored to the Victorian period. ...

    A seafood dinner at The Global Village restaurant two doors up is superb - serious competition for The Three Chimneys! At the Docks, a double cone of Dingle icecream delights with flavours of Irish bread and Dingle sea-salt! Facades - All is not what it seems! We discover that the hardware shop, the curio shop and the men's outfitters - all with dusty and exhausted shop fronts - are also ...
