      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 …

      Day 3 - Blarney Castle to Kinsale to Killarney

      ... me!). The climb was worth it with some stunning views and it is said kissing the stone -- which you must do bending backwards over the edge of the castle -- will give you eternally luck, eloquence and strength. Big Russ, it is said Churchill kissed the stone right before his presidency and first major speech ... so that makes one pause and think a bit about the stones good fortune.

      After Blarney, it was on to Kinsale, a quaint fishing town ...

At some point John named me his "co-pilot" and told me that I obviously had to offer my services to the Ring of Kerry tour company from now on (as he had made me pull the broken bus door next to me and watch for any cars approaching from behind). He even said I should have come and have a pint with them if I didn't have to get back to Cork tonight - which I did so there was no way I could have (and I don't know if I ...

      ... at the place (mayhem!) because the house owner and his brother were running off to Dublin and the other housemate’s friends were there enjoying pints, and I was in and out with my bags. (mayhem!). I returned to Thomond, had a good clean, sat in my now eerily empty room, and gazed out my window. I bid adieu to my housemate, the one who’s been there the whole time, and left. First I visited my two Arkansas friends, who I wouldn’t ...

He joked with us about being married for 45 years because when he was trying to give us change he was pulling money out of every pocket saying this way his wife has trouble finding it all. Rich asked for a pump and a spare tube and Dermot commented that it was not necessary because we could just flag down any Irishman and they'd me willing to help. If they couldn't help ...
