I spent two nights at the Killarney Royal following a stay at their sister hotel Hayfield Manor in Cork. I have stayed before and found the levels of comfort, service and convenience to be consistently excellent. I have been coming to Killarney for years and have stayed in many of the best well known hotels but it is the care...

A grand hotel from the golden age of hospitality, both in look and service. Reception staff knowledgable and happy to help, recommendations from parking, to eating and drinking to entertainment all spot on. The rooms are a clever mixture of old school grandeur and modern boutique, so whilst the imposing lights on either side of the bed remind one of...

Stay last week and had a wonderful experience. Beautiful hotel, decor is older but VERY clean. Very comfortable bed and extremely helpful staff.

The hotel was totally booked out so we only managed to stay one night. This is a very homely hotel with friendly helpful staff. Our waitress Nancy was just so lovely. We had very comfortable rooms. Breakfast was hot --- we were advised of same but maybe it was a little too hot as one member of our party found...

This was one of our hotels on an 8-day trip to Ireland with eleven family members. The trip was marvelously arranged through Maloney and Kelly Travel. All of the accommodations were much more luxurious than we would usually choose, but given the group price each was a very worthwhile splurge. My only regret is that I don’t have a typical...

The staff was very warm & eager to help. The hotel was charming, clean & in a great location! There are two great pharmacies in the area if you need anything at all, Kennelly Pharmacy! Good shopping on the street and plenty of fun bars and restaurants.

Stayed here for 2 nights with husband and our youngest child. From moment of arrival to our departure I felt right at home. Clean, cosy and warm atmosphere and so welcoming. Plenty of breakfast delights to choose from, very helpful, pleasant and professional staff. Room was again clean, cosy and well spacious. Will definitely stay again.

The Royal is a warm and comfortable hotel. It isn't grand or flash but it is charming and pleasant. The room was huge with a great bathroom and very good beds. The breakfasts are excellent, especially our new gourmet find - Irish bread which is dense and nutty. The hotel is opposite all the wonderful nightlife - the bars selling...

We were a little disappointed in our rooms. This was supposed to be a top rated hotel and we expected more. Although the front desk staff and bell men were terrific, it didn't make up for the rooms. Compared to the other hotels on the trip, this was not up to our expectations.
