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 .

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

... it was absolutely overrun with coach loads of other tourists admiring the beauty of the cliffs. Fortunately for me I'd decided to walk further from the visitor centre to a point called Hags Head which was 6km along and as most of the groups stop for an hour to an hour and a half tops they didn't have the time to walk that far. The walk to Hags Head took me about an hour and half with the many many stops I made to take pictures of the cliffs and birds. As I was walking ...
... nice parks and return. The castle (Ross Caslte) wasn't that good but the 10 km round trip walk was. We walk past the race track on our way home, the races are on today from 5pm until about 8pm. We think we might go but change our mind and watch a race or two at the pub with a drink in hand. They are all steeplechasers here not like Australia and the races are much longer in length, all over 3 mile. The horses are exhausted when they return, a bit like ...
... we do the counter-clockwise route so we wouldn't be fighting lines with bus tours. We never saw a bus the whole day, which makes us count our blessings, due to the narrow winding roads. We haven't figured out the protocol for stopping/backing up- pretty sure the car moving uphill would have to do something, but with no pull-outs, we better learn how to levitate.
Lots of places are closed for the season now, or due to ...
... This morning, shortly after breakfast, while Brittany was in the shower, we found out what happens when the meter runs out of coins. Brittany didn't seem too impressed to be standing in the shower waiting for it to come back on while Dave went to get the owner. Dave and I, however, found it amusing. As soon as Dave opened the front door in rushed Tequila and Dusty, the friendly Rottweilers. They love being in here, it ...
... with little room to pass. When a huge truck met us on one of these narrow parts, Judy saw her life passing in front of her! I must admit it was bloody close, and I can still see the grin on the driver as he expertly missed us by centimeters -Whew! It was a long day of driving and we finally ended up in Kilarney around 8pm.
Next morning (May 16) we awoke to rain which lasted most of the day. We walked around town in ...
