... with lots of side stopping to let others pass. Back to Killarney
for a Guinness or a Kilkenny , good food and live music in the pub across the road.
Day 2 in Killarney and closer to town, In Killarney we head off to Muckross House, I felt like I had been transported to another time. The furnishings and decor recall the early
20th century, and a trip downstairs reminds you of how diligently the
... the motorway route instead. Less stress, and more daylight to enjoy the views.
The Cliffs of Mohir are spectacular. At some points, you are at least 600' above the water. When the wind is blowing like it did today, that makes it more likely that you will experience the free fall...At one point, we walked through an arch in the tower on the edge, and it felt like you were being sucked through. Ryan turned around and leaned into ...
... my friend’s house and drinking from the lake at the top, untouched by any pollution. I didn’t get sick, which just proves its freshness. I haven’t breathed air that fresh in ages, probably not since I hung out in the Alps 2 years ago (was it really that long?). I liked the farm life. People are friendly, down here. We couldn't pass a car without stopping for a conversation. People say hello when you walk by. We were invited ...
... The only main difference would have to be the roads. You see, New Zealand has actual roads. Ireland, I think they are a wee bit confused on road safety and the proper size for a road. It's more like a sidewalk. Whatever works I suppose. We lived to tell the stories - that's the important thing :)
The first bit of our adventure began about an hour in. Dan was adamant about us getting out and hiking a mountain. Well, seeing as we didn't have the proper shoes or ...
I forgot to mention yesterday I went into many of the little souvenir shops in Killarney. Wow, this was interesting! A little ******* the eyes…everything was green, it was hard to tell one thing from another, lol.
After breakfast this morning we left the hotel to start our drive around the Ring of Kerry, a 179km circular route around the mountains. 'The Ring' is dotted with lots of attractions and colourful villages and towns, each with ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Riverside Hotel Killarney
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
