It's a lovely establishment the room was very spacious and clean. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The service was very quick and efficient. The breakfast in the morning was piping hot. Great value for money. I would happily stay here again.

A warm welcome and friendly service throughout. Decent food menu and choice of drinks, attentive wait staff. Room, shower and wifi were as to be expected at the price point. A hearty breakfast with plenty of toast and hot drinks to set you up for the day. Although the place could do with some minor refurbishments there's nothing fundamentally wrong.

Stopped here on our way to Trabolgan for a spot of lunch. It was very handy as we were meeting my parents who were traveling from a different direction so it was easy for them to find. The place is nice and airy and has lovely quirky decor. The staff were very friendly and welcoming too. They had a nice... More

Mallow is a great place to visit. People are friendly and nice town. However, the Roundabout Inn is a disgrace to the hospitality industry in Ireland. Horrendous for service, cleanliness, location, menu, food quality, ambience, rooms, beds, curtains, TV channels.......... I could go on........ appalling!!

I took a liking to Mallow years ago because one of the pubs, the Olde Fiddle, was owned by a couple with the same family name as mine. This time I was in Ireland alone for a couple of weeks and decided to stay there again., So I booked a room here. While I was driving into Mallow, I looked... More

Closer to Ring of kerry (which is where we were headed). Rooms were clean. Excellent staff. Comfortable beds. Ample parking space. Could not ask for more for a one night stay. Food was mediocre. It is near to the city, which is handy.

The roundabout inn has very comfortable beds, a hot shower, friendly staff and a good feed. It s not plush but the welcome is worth it alone. I ll definitely be back the next time I m here for work. Great value rooms and food. It's not a five star hotel but you get what you pay for!

We didn't stay, so cannot comment on the accommodation. Had a fantastic meal and drinks here. Roast pork was the best I have had anywhere - ever ! The food is absolutely first class. Waiting staff attentive. Value for money second to none. Do not be put off by the exterior, which could do with a little TLC ?

Beside Mallow station, convenient situation by main road intersection, good place to rendezvous. Easy to find while travelling. Good spaces between tables so good to talk privately. Full bar with local beers. Good easy car parking off road.
