    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 …

    ... down highway 101 of the Oregon Coast is just as spectacular in places, I had expected to be wowed even more. I'm sure glad, that the Oregon Coast is more of a mystery to the rest of the world, for I would sure hate to see traffic pick up there.

    We arrived back in Killarney at about 2:30. The sun was just brutal for this area. We were told that this was the warmest day of the year (29 degrees Celsius, which would be 84 degrees Fahrenheit). We were told ...

    ... called Monty and led the pack, but he did like to eat alot which was annoying. It started raining while we were on there, but because they’d already had so much rain most of the track was extremely muddy full of puddles which all the horses had no problem walking through, but Monty was a sook and always walked off the trail to avoid the muddy puddles haha.

    We went to our hostel from there ...

    ... lettuce, Dubliner cheddar cheese, and mayonnaise. It was surprisingly pleasant. Audra and I also bought mini-baguettes and some smoked cheddar and french edham cheese (similar to swiss) to snack on later. I also got some orange juice and a small banana to go with my sandwich. All for only about 5 euro! At least know we know what we will live on for the next 2 months...
