    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.

    Killarney; A nice drive to Killarney Ireland even if it was pouring with rain and my navigator quit on me.
    The pouring rain was made somewhat more bearable by the fact that we passed thousands of motorcycles going the opposite direction. All the riders looked very wet and very cold battling the extreme winds; while we were nice and warm and …

    ... day hike due to lack of information, unclearly marked trails, and "no camping" signs. And, let's be honest, the difficulty of our it-must-have-been-longer-than-8-miles hike today - without our day packs, much less our backpacking backpacks - scared us a bit. After camping in the campgrounds another night, we'll likely stay at a hostel in Galway to check out the town and do a day trip to the Cliffs. We'll see what happens. But really. It had to be, like, 12-15 ...

    ... the hang out with the locals while our good old Nicole snubbed them and stayed locked away in her caravan, there's some great Aussie friendliness for you!!! These little homes again i think were used in the famine where anywhere up to 10 people would be crammed in to these tiny little building. They are protected under the law, much like our heritage listed buildings and tourist buses stop and we each give this lovely lady our 2 Euro, i actually think she ...

    ... back to the main roads. After a few more windy single lanes we finally got back to a main road. A least we got to see more of the country side; there are some beautiful valleys and hills and some interesting homes. We got to the Lake Hotel at Killarney around lunch time. Two adjacent rooms and a double and a single bed in each, sweet! Time for lunch in the sun room overlooking the lake before sight seeing for the afternoon. Liam had some lovely fish goujons (like nuggets ...

I didn't realize A) the order was referring to an english muffin and B) when she said 'help yourself' she was referring to a seat. It wasnt until she gave me my breakfast that she came up and informed me that i didnt order a muffin and that ...
