      Historical Traveler Reviews Riverside Hotel Killarney

      Highly recommended


      What can I say - superb. My Wife and I celebrated our Silver Wedding Anniversary at The Riverside on 6th September, and could not have been better looked after. After extensive searching on my part to find the right hotel, I contacted them a couple of months ago and from that day to when we arrived we couldn't have been looked after better. We were warmly greeted by the very friendly staff who were all aware of why we were there, and we were given one of the only two suites. Our stay was wonderfull, and at the evening meal in the restaurant ( well recomended, and well used by non-patrons ) was terrific, and we were presented with a decorated cake by the staff at the end of the meal. I cannot praise them enough for the way we were looked after. The area in and around Killarney is well worth a visit, we only briefly toured the area, but what we saw was outstanding.

      Kid Friendly


      My family and I have just returned from a wonderful trip around Ireland. While in Killarney we stayed at the Riverside and really enjoyed it. They are very child friendly (we traveled with our 11 month old). I would recommend the Riverside as a place for families to stay.

      Friendly Efficiency


      My wife and myself had a wonderful stay in Killarney. Muckroos Park is the most wonderful park in the world. We spent days exploring all the walk.

      Staying at the Riverside Hotel was a most enjoyable experience. As well as all the quality you would expect in a 4 star modern hotel it had that something extra. We put it down to the staff who were so friendly but very efficient.

      The food was really great and it is located neat Muckross Park. Please pass this on to the hotel.

      A good honest hotel at a fair price


      We have been going to the Riverside each year since 2001. The staff are courteous. The restaurant is very good indeed. All in all this is a hotel with class without the classy pricetag!It is out of town which is no bad thing, because you really can feel you are surrounded by the mountains and National park and yet the busyness is only 5 minutes walk away.

      Loved it


      It was great, the drinks in the bar were a bit pricey. It's close to the city a nice walk. The room was great and the bathroom was huge. Staff was amazing and the food was one of the best we had.

      Great Hotel


      Just spent three nights at the hotel, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Rooms were clean and tastefully decorated. Food in restaurant was top class.

      All staff, from reception, bar and restaurant, were pleasant and very helpful. Would highly recommend hotel for a quite weekend away !

      Top Marks for the Riverside Hotel!


      I recently spent a weekend in the Riverside Hotel, and found the whole experience to be very relaxing & enjoyable. The hotel staff, from the girls at reception to the bar & restaurant staff were friendly, polite and very helpful. Our room was tastefully decorated, comfortable and very clean. I tried both the bar food & the restaurant, and the choice, variety and standard of food in both was fantastic! A weekend at the Riverside Hotel is a must for anyone visiting Killarney!

      Nothing was a problem.just loved my stay.


      Everything a hotel should be.Great welcome, food and tastefully decorated rooms.Am a regular at this stage. Do not normally submit any comments but saw negative one and thought same to be malicious.

      Had a fab time at the Riverside


      We spent a weekend at the Riverside Hotel last year and had a wonderful time. The staff were very nice and extremely accommodating, they were always most courteous, and the food was superb. Two nights B&B, including 1 evening meal, cost us along the lines of 100 euro per person sharing! A fantastic deal, I certainly can't find any fault with the Riverside!! Cathy

      Wouldnt Stay Again


      We stayed in this hotel In September 2003. The web page looked great but we were very much disappointed when we say our room. It was an average size but was poorly decorated and didnt feel very clean. We wont be staying here again.

      Summer may be over for us here in Ireland. The temperatures have dropped to the mid 50's, and the winds have picked up. We are all wearing jackets in August. That's just crazy. Everything else is going well. Kole's job is still going great. He just finished a complicated transition of service providers. He worked so ******* this and gained …

Behind us, there is honking and yelling, and Norm mutters "******* Americans." Then he grins and says, "That was me 5 minutes ago."

I repeatedly asked Aaron if the way to the hostel was a certain direction and throughout the whole night he would point the opposite direction. My lack of navigation of course would not have been a problem if I had the common sense or the ability to stay with Aaron and josh, ...

      ... golf tournament leaves. We could have found another pub, but the fire was so nice to sit next to. Fortunately, one TV cleared out after 30 minutes. We changed the channel and tried to order some lunch. Nope, no food at this pub. Gretchen picked up some take away from the Irish version of McDonald's, Den Jones. Not great, but it sufficed. What was great was watching the tour next to a fire on a cold, dreary day.

Tonight, we decided to make tacos (from the box) which does not taste anything like our same box back home.The kids did eat it with no problems and then it was time to get them read for bed. The staff then asked us again if we were turning in for the night and we replied yes - no partying for us with the ...
