          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.

          ... live out there - it seems quite uninhabitable. Aside from a few ancient forts and church ruins, there is pretty much nothing to see there, but John did his best to keep up an enthusiastic banter while we nodded politely and pleasantly. He offered many times to stop any place we wanted to take photos, but the place is so bleak and boring there is really nothing to take pictures of. The most exciting thing he could show us was where the big storm last winter washed the road away ...

          On saturday afternoon we also visited Dingle town. I had an idea that Dingle would not be exactly like in the movie Leap Year, but I didn't think it could be so different! Nothing about it at all resembled the movie, and I guess I ...

          We woke up this morning to what i expected the read Ireland to look like... Grey skies, cold and raining. Today we had ANOTHER bus driver! His name was Mark. He was instantly my favourite, making jokes, telling us lots about what we were doing and where we were going, and generally being a cool guy. We should have him for the rest of the tour now! Our first stop was a little lookout over the lakes and mountains. Darren had a chat with Mark and found out he ...

          ... sorts of emotions, sad and excited. On Wednesday night, I made some lovely enchiladas as a final dinner, packed until I was too tired to go on, and continued in the morning. My way of packing was just throwing everything willy nilly into those squishy bags and cramming them into my suitcases. How did my stuff grow so much? I brought all the stuff over to the new place via my friend’s mom’s car, dropped off my bags, saw loads of people in ...

          The show lasted quite a while and there was even an intermission in the middle. You could go out to smoke, get more to drink or browse in the gift shop. We found some nice postcards for the family there.

          The meal and show at Kate Kearney's Cottage was just wonderful. After the show Tony droves us back to our bnbs for the night. It was late so we watched tv before going to sleep.
