Well Impressed... Great Family Hotel
Stayed here with my husband & 2 youg kids in the newly appointed hotel suites. Well impressed... the suites are ideal with young kids. Food was exellent. Definitely value for money. Is under construction at the moment, but at the price you are paying and the facilities you are getting you cannot complain. Lobby area is ideal for kids, they can stay up here at night for a while and listen to the music... Would well recommend as a family hotel.
The staff are Quality!
my husband and i have stayed at at the quality hotel killarney formely the kilkarney ryan hotel many many times over the last few years with our children who now no longer come with us. the only reason we go back is for the great staff! they know our faces and are always very pleasant and welcoming. the hotel did need a re vamp and it got it the end of last year. whilst the rooms are lovely and modern now we feel that the lobbby has changed from being the nice cosy place where you could enjoy a frieldly drink at night listening to the band to a very open area which is short on seating! the re vamped hotel is lovely and teething problems are natural so hopefully thus will be sorted out soon! but saying that it is lovely to see that parents with children are still welcome in their lobby at any time. we feel we must mention the receptionist helena. we have always found that she always finds time to chat to us and enquire how we are, when you think of the volume of people that pass though the hotel its nice that she remembers us. having someone like her at the reception desk has to be of benfit to the hotel.
we would recommend the hotel to anyone with or without kids but beware during summer holidays ther are a lot of kids there. killarney being the lovely place it is ryans is the place to stay.
feel free to email with any questions
Friends recomended the hotel as a great place for kids, well it was. They are so professional at what they do Walt Disney could learn from them.
We were on a 3 night package with 2 dinners. 2 adults and 2 kids. They entertained the kids all day long and gave myself any my husband some valuable time together as moms know its hard to get that time together. The Friendly Fellows and their award winning creche were excellent. The kids would all dine together leaving time for the parents to have a relaxing meal together. We were entertained each evening with a great selection of music, the kids had magic shows and go-karting.
Looking forward to returning again next year as we think we have found to most family friendly place in Ireland.
We were due to stay 2 nights with our little girl. We checked out after one. The hotel needs a complete revamp. The carpets, bed clothes etc looked very worn and tired. I was extremely disappointed with this hotel and would not recommend it.
Standards are way down
Stayed at the Killarney Ryan recently. I wasn't very impressed. I found it to be of about 2 or 3 class standard, but the price was way too high. It was dirty, especially in the bar, with a strong smell of smoke and stale air in the rooms. I have to say that the pool facilities were nice (except for the ear infection later), but a little run down. The entertainment in the bar was brutal, eg. a one man band, wanna-be wedding singer ....
I found the staff to be fine, but my friends who also stayed found several of the staff to be very rude, or maybe just inexperienced.
A major construction project is underway there at the moment so noise, dust were a problem. The car park entrance was flowing with mud.
I wouldn't advise it at all. There are plenty of better and cheaper hotels and B+Bs in the area.
I'd definitely advise you to visit Killarney though. The scenery is just FANTASTIC. Better than I've seen anywhere and better than I could have imagined.
Super christmas break !
We stayed at the Killarney Ryan hotel for 5 nights B&B after christmas with our 3 kids and found it very relaxing, with excellent facillities for the kids.The staff in the creche and the friendly fellows club were super with the kids and took care of them very well with plenty of fun and games.The food in the restaurant was excellent with very good service and frendly staff.i Would recommend this hotel highly for families.
Great Holiday Spot For The Kids
Just to let other stressed out working parents know that the Killarney Ryan do all in their power to look after the kids and entertain them, just to say thanks.
I was recently in Ireland to attend the Irish Dancing World Championships and had the pleasure of staying at the Killarney Ryan Hotel. We were very happy with the accomodations. The rooms were clean, the hotel was conveniently located and the staff working in the restaurant were very friendly and helpful. The hotel also had a nice lounge area with nightly entertainment and a fun atmosphere. I would love to return to Ireland some day and would not hesitate to stay at the Killarney Ryan hotel.
Excellent all round
We stayed at the Killarney Ryan Hotel recently and took the kids with us. The hotel is perfectly situated, about 10mins walk(perfect for walking off the pounds gained during our stay). The kids loved it there, they met new friends through the kiddies club which left me and my husband to enjoy our stay. There was a full activity program to suit them. Our stay included bed and breakfast and dinner each evening. The only negitive comment I would make is that the food is only mediocore. The staff were brillant, the receptionist went out of her way to tell us about the sights and even rang the different places to ask about admission charges, she also pointed out a large book full of useful information on the area, very helpful and friendly. I would definatly return there again
Very helpful staff
We stayed at the Ryan last week and found the staff very helpful. While there our daughter had an appendicitis attack. The receptionist helped me to find a local doctor, called my cab and was just very helpful. We came in very late after our childs surgery, and the restraunt staff was just great, fixed us a very late meal and just took very good care of us during a stressful time... if you read
this.. thanks to all.

... The signs lead to a private property where you park and pay 4 euros for the pleasure of walking the 10 minutes up to the look out. The cliffs were spectacular even though the weather was a distraction and reduced visibility. As to whether they are the most spectacular in Kerry I am not in a position to judge. The peninsular is reminiscent of Skye. The mountains are not quite so huge ...
... the Ring. The area was breathtaking; it felt like we were driving through a mythical forest.
Next, we stopped at a restaurant that overlooked the valley and ocean behind us. I ordered a the shepherd's pie which was very fitting considering the area we were in (cows and sheep for miles) I ate every bite. Right next to our bus at the restaurant was a giant rhubarb plant. It's leaves were about ...
... up bright and early in hopes of going for a hike around the Killarney National Park! Unfortunately we woke up to pouring ran on our window, and realizing that we had left our shoes outside to air out overnight. We scrambled to bring them inside but the damage had already been done and our shoes were dripping wet! We went downstairs for breakfast and made the decision to postpone our hike in hopes of better weather! We spent the day playing Monopoly and a few other board ...
This morning we left Dublin to travel down to Killarney. It was still very cold, blustery, and alternating rain and sunshine as we drove along. We stopped in the cute little town of Adare for lunch at The Arches, and took a short stroll up and down the main drag. In Killarney, we checked into The Fairview Hotel; it is very nice and right in the city center. Bruce, Sue, Lauren, and I went out for a walk so I could show them a bit of the city and a very ...
... been about the Ring of Kerry... however, the fog made it literally impossible to see much of anything. John - our tour guide and driver - did tell us where the hills were supposed to be (and he assured us that they had definitely been there yesterday, so we had not to worry, haha) and he gave us some background info on the different plants and things we could see from the bus. It still didn't really make up for the lack of view we had. Then again, we had a ...
