We had an amazing stay at this hotel celebrating our wedding anniversary. The staff were very welcoming and service was excellent. From our room we had a view out on the national park and mountains through the hotel windows which were the old shutter style. The hotel itself had a lovely old world charm. It was a bit of heaven so peaceful. The breakfast too was luxurious -very generous portions for the full Irish breakfast we had and they played classical music in the breakfast room . They also had some lovely porridge and honey which you don't see a lot these days. Overall a very enjoyable stay, we will be back! Christine
We had a lovely stay at this hotel its lovey if there is fine weather to sit out the back with the fan serene view, mary Theresa very nice :-)
We stayed in this hotel for three nights. The hotel is beautiful with gorgeous rooms and grounds. The breakfast was beautiful and food in the cellar bar was delicious. (just a note re the cellar bar the seats are far too low for the tables!!, But this didn't stop us from enjoying the nice food). We really enjoyed our stay and we will definitely return. The staff in the dining room and bar were v pleasant..(wouldn't it be lovely to have some Irish staff serving in this beautiful dining room in this beautiful manor house). However the staff in the reception did not engage with us at any stage. There was no hearty welcome or any nice good bye and hope you enjoyed your stay.In fact there was no interaction at all. This is a beautiful hotel with amazing potential .It would be such a wonderful setting for meditation or yoga breaks etc.... A little pet corner maybe? It's a gem.
we enjoyed our stay.but there was dvd players advertised in the bedrooms we had two rooms and no dvd player in either.. Great views of the mountains and very near Killarney
Absolutely perfect! We stayed for 2 nights and although we had intended on eating out at one of the many renowned restaurants in the town, we couldn't resist having dinner in the hotels bar each night. The atmosphere was wonderful there and the food!... Oh it was utterly delicious! The staff couldn't have been nicer and the rooms were very comfortable. The countryside surrounding Killarney itself was magical. We rented bikes and cycled around A bit of the national park which took the entire day. We also hired out a small boat from Ross castle and sailed to an abandoned island which was once home to a 6th century monastery and is now home to beautiful red deer. The man sailing the boat was a great guide and very entertaining. All in all, we wish that we had more time there!
This is a very quiet 'olde world' hotel with gorgeous grounds and rooms. However, like one of the other reviews our room was very chilly. We got an extra plug in heater, but even at that the room was still chilly. There are only the irish channels on tv and no wifi so with the weather and lack of cosiness anywhere in the hotel we decided to cut our break short. The breakfast was absolutely delicious and the staff in the dining room very pleasant.
Excellent weekend really nice hotel and surroundings, and the staff are really helpful
I found this hotel to be elegant, beautifully decorated and the staff were nice too. It really gave a feel that you were miles away from anybody else. The only flaw i could give this hotel and it was a major flaw at times, was that we were absolutely freezing in our room. We had to ask at reception for another heater. They gave us a small plug in one which did help but the main heating on came on for an hour here and there, and being November you can imagine the cold. Other than this we found our stay to be most enjoyable and will definitely visit again but only in the summer months.
